This study enrolled 110,068 participants from the national health screening cohort in Korea from 2009–2010 who underwent an oral health checkup. As oral hygiene indicators, the presence of periodontitis, dental caries, tooth loss, and tooth brushing were assessed. We constructed a linear mixed model for BMI. BMI was repeatedly measured in the health examination until 2015. In the multivariate linear mixed model for BMI, the presence of periodontitis (β = 0.0687, standard error (SE) = 0.0225, p = 0.002), dental caries (β = 0.0735, SE = 0.0152, p < 0.001), and tooth loss (β = 0.1328, SE = 0.0175, ...

AbstractStreptococcus mutans is a common pathogen present in the oral cavity and it causes dental caries for all aged groups of people, in particular, children.S. mutans have several virulence factors such as acidogenecity, aciduricity, adhesion and biofilm formation. These virulence factors are working together and lead to the development of caries in the tooth surface. The present study aimed to investigate the anticariogenic potential of 3, 5-di-tert-butylphenol (3, 5-DTBP) againstS. mutans. 3, 5-DTBP biofilm inhibitory concentration (BIC) was found at 100  µg/ml concentration without any lethal effect on the...

In this study, a pH-responsive core-shell nano micelle (mPEG-b-PDPA) capable of loading hydrophobic antibacterial agents was synthesized and characterized, including its ability to deliver antibacterial agents within an acidic biofilm. The molecular structure of this diblock copolymer was determined by hydrogen-1 nuclear magnetic resonance (1H-NMR) and gel permeation chromatography (GPC). The characters of the micelles were studied by dynamic light scattering (DLS), TEM, pH titration, and drug release detection. It was found that the hydrophilic micelles could deliver bedaquiline, a hydrophobic antibacterial agent on S. mu...

Conclusion: Studies that focused on increasing pediatric oral health knowledge and practice behaviors among both EHS staff members and parents reflected positive outcomes. Ongoing research is needed to examine the effectiveness of oral health education and promotion activities as they relate to the oral health outcomes of children enrolled in EHS programs.PMID:34654711

Conclusion: There is no significant correlation between frequency of dental visits and self-awareness measures. Oral health education should urgently point out for all generations by dental professionals, media, and governmental authorities including preventive methods, oral hygiene instructions all aimed at preventing caries and raising self-awareness.
