Belfast scientists say aspirin could reverse tooth decay
Research finds aspirin stimulates the regeneration of damaged tooth structure.

The aim of this study was to examine whether this relationship also depends on the presence of H2O2-producing strains of Lactobacillus spp. Adults with severe caries (decayed, missing, and filled teeth (DMFT)> 13.9, n = 28) were compared with similarly aged adults who had minimal caries (DMFT
Conclusion Caries in the primary dentition in the GCC States was high both in terms of mean dmft (5.14) and prevalence (80.95%).
MORE than 160,000 children of primary school age have rotten teeth, according to a new report. Figures from Public Health England show that 23.3 per cent of five-year-olds in England have dental decay.
Levels of tooth decay in five year old children are continuing to decline, according to data published by Public Health England (PHE).

Some 23.3 per cent have dental decay, according Public Health England data. British Dental Association chairman Mick Armstrong said: 'It's a tragedy that a oral health is determined by postcodes'.
ConclusionsThis study points out potential oral health risk factors in children with early-detected externalising behaviour problems. Although no difference in caries prevalence was observed, externalising behaviour may affect oral health. Therefore, dental professionals should support the families and the children to preserve dental health by offering increased prophylactic measures. There were no differences between children with externalising behaviour problems, compared with controls, regarding the parent evaluation of their child ’s dental health. However, more parents in the study group evaluated the dental car...
Conclusions: Regular consumption of milk containing probiotics bacteria reduced CFU/mL of Lactobacillus spp. and increased salivary buffering capacity at 9 months of consumption.
