Many studies have focused on the relationship between nicotine andS. mutans in vitro. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of nicotine on the growth ofS. mutans and its cariogenic potentialin vivo.Materials and methodsSixteen male Specific-pathogen-free Wistar rats were divided into 2 groups (nicotine-treated and nicotine-untreated group) and infected withS. mutans.

Research on the association between dental caries and body mass index (BMI) in children has shown contradictory results; thus we aimed to examine the association between dental caries and the full range of BMI classes among children. We comprehensively searched PubMed, Embase, and the Cochrane Library for studies published prior to March 2017. Articles comparing dental caries among the full range of BMI classes for children below 18 years of both genders were included. Fourteen studies were eligible for this study. Basic information - i.e., first author, published year, study design, country, sample size, age, type of dent...

Abstract Bacteria that accumulate polyphosphate have previously been shown to dynamically influence the solubility of phosphatic minerals in marine settings and wastewater. Here we show that dental plaque, saliva, and carious lesions, all contain abundant polyphosphate-accumulating bacteria. Saturation state modeling results, informed by phosphate uptake experiments using the model organism Lactobacillus rhamnosus, which is known to inhabit advanced carious-lesions, suggest that polyphosphate accumulation can lead to undersaturated conditions with respect to hydroxyapatite under some oral cavity conditions. The ce...
