Influence of the oscillation frequency of different side-to-side toothbrushes on noncontact biofilm removal

ConclusionsThe oscillation frequency of the tested side-to-side toothbrushes affected the biofilm reduction in an interdental space model.Clinical relevanceWithin a toothbrush, higher oscillation frequencies may lead to beneficial effects on interdental biofilm removal by noncontact brushing.

Conclusion LS is well known to specialists in the H&N region, but other disciplines like general surgery, urology, or obstetrics and gynaecology might also rarely encounter the disease. We present a case of LS complicating a perianal abscess that was successfully treated with good outcome.

Summary Bacteria residing in oral biofilms live in a state of dynamic equilibrium with one another. The intricate synergistic or antagonistic interactions between them are crucial for determining this balance. Using the six‚Äźspecies Zürich “supragingival” biofilm model, this study aimed to investigate interactions regarding growth and localization of the constituent species. As control, an inoculum containing all six strains was used, whereas in each of the further five inocula one of the bacterial species was alternately absent, and in the last, both streptococci were absent. Biofilms were grown anaerobi...

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) plays important roles in the pathogenesis of periodontitis. Oral pathogens typically produce H2S from l-cysteine in addition to pyruvate and NH4+. However, fn1055 from Fusobacterium nucleatum subsp. nucleatum ATCC 25586 encodes a pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (PLP)-dependent enzyme that catalyzes the production of H2S and l-serine from l-cysteine and H2O, an unusual cysteine (hydroxyl) lyase reaction (β-replacement reaction). To reveal the reaction mechanism, the crystal structure of substrate-free Fn1055 was determined. Based on this structure, a model of the l-cysteine-PLP Schiff base suggested that ...

Authors: Mesrar H, Mesrar J, Maillier B, Kraoua S, Chapoutot L, Delclaux B Abstract Lemierre's syndrome is a rare and severe sepsis that can rapidly lead to a life-threatening condition in the absence of early management. This syndrome described at the beginning of the 20th century combines oropharyngeal infection complicated with septic thrombosis of the internal jugular vein and septic emboli predominantly pulmonary. Fusobacterium necrophorum, anaerobic germ, Gram negative bacillus is the main germ in this "necrobacillosis". The diagnosis is should be confirmed precociously with cervicothoracic CT-scan,...

Aim: to establish the variability and origin of the composition of oropharyngeal microbiota in patients with different clinical and functional characteristics of COPD.Methods: included g64 COPD patients without exacerbations for 4 weeks. At the visit were performed the collection of anamnestic data, lung function evaluation, body plethysmography, lung diffusion capacity study, CT scan of the chest and collection of oropharingeal swabs to identify the composition of the microbiota by sequencing 16S rRNA gene sequences of bacteria. To determine the pattern of respiratory microbiota associated with specific phenotypic charact...

In conclusion, the study indicated that the oils of O. stamineus and F. deltoidea possessed moderate to strong antibacterial properties against the seven strains pathogenic oral bacteria and may have caused disturbances of membrane structure or cell wall of the bacteria.
