ABSTRACT
The article discusses results of a study comparing the antimicrovial effects of a triclosan/copolymer dentifrice versus fluoride dentifrice on oral microorganisms located on the dental plaque, saliva and tongue. Colony-forming units of bacteria were significantly decreased in the triclosan/copolymer group than fluoride group. Effectivity of the triclosan/copolymer group was high even after 12 hours of brushing.

    We developed an experimental in vitro model of dental plaque to assess the potential efficacy of antiplaque agents. The model used a chemostat, which provided a continuous source of 5 species of oral bacteria grown in an artificial "saliva-like" medium. This mixture was pumped through six flow...

    Several important issues have been raised concerning the need for consideration of alternatives to fluoride. The principle reason to do so has been the lack of comprehensive effectiveness of fluoride, which in turn reveals incomplete understanding of the caries process. Included among the topics...

    Recent studies showed that salivary, plaque-fluid, and whole-plaque fluoride were significantly higher 120 min after subjects rinsed with a novel two-solution rinse than after they rinsed with a NaF rinse of the same fluoride concentration. In this study, the persistence of these increases was...

    Although the ability of dental plaque to hydrolyze sodium monofluorophosphate (MPP) has been known for some time, its effect on the F" concentration at the plaque- enamel interface is undefined. We have determined enzyme kinetic values for MFP hydrolysis and diffusion coefficients so that the...

Many studies report that changes in the dental flora occur after starting the orthodontic treatment. The aim of this study was to evaluate the changes of the oral...
