ABSTRACT
This article focuses on advertising claims made for the dentifrice Pepsodent. The author explains that the toothpaste does not have the ability to digest dental mucin plaques as the advertisements suggest, nor can it dissolve plaque. The author believes such advertising is misleading and ignorant of dental principles.

    This article focuses on an experimental study to test the validity of claims made on the ability of the dentifrice Pepsodent. Claims assert that Pepsodent removes mucin plaque from teeth by dissolving them. The study found that Pepsodent does not digest mucin plaque and that the amount of pepsin...

    The article presents research which examined the effectiveness of chlorhexidine gluconate (CG) at inhibiting plaque formation. The safety of CG and its potential use in mouthwashes are explored. Details about the study and methods used are provided and a chart illustrating the effectiveness of...

    A double-blind cross-over clinical study was performed on eight volunteers to determine the plaque-inhibiting effect of different triclosan- and sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS)-containing mouthrinses. An attempt was also made to locate the binding site(s) of triclosan in the oral cavity. After the...

  • Effects of Foods on Oral Bacterial Populations in Man and Animals. BOWEN, WILLIAM H. // Journal of Dental Research;Nov1970, Vol. 49 Issue 6, p1276 

    The article discusses the effects of foods on oral bacterial populations in humans and animals. The author examines the development of flora in neonates as well as the effects of food in general on the composition of flora in plaque. Experimental methods used in a study to observe the...

  • Discussion.  // Journal of Dental Research;Nov1970, Vol. 49 Issue 6, p1292 

    The article discusses the limited metabolic activity of bacteria in dental plaque. The suggestion that cariogenic polysaccharide-storing organisms can thrive in the mouth because of this is examined. The varied effects of foodstuffs in modifying acid production in the depth of the plaque are...

  • Discussion.  // Journal of Dental Research;Nov1970, Vol. 49 Issue 6, p1317 

    The article compares the metabolisms of the mixed microbial populations in salivary sediment and natural dental plaque material. The author examines theories about the infectiousness of caries, which are likely to arise initially from shifts in the composition of a total flora of mouth microbiology.

    The ability of vancomycin to reduce the formation of dental plaque after periodontal surgery was studied. There was a significant reduction in plaque for the period of time observed. An extrinsic stain was noted on the teeth of some patients.

    The capacity of phytic acid and glycerophosphate to desorb salivary proteins from hydroxyapatite was studied in vitro. Phytic acid had a high capacity for desorption; the capacity of glycerophosphate was considerably lower. In vivo experiments showed that both substances were capable of reducing...

    There is significant evidence to support the regular review of patients with chronic periodontitis. There is, however, comparatively little evidence to demonstrate how often such reviews should take place. This paper looks at the periodontal healing period, the risks of periodontal progression...
