Regulation of pH is necessary to the production of an environment conducive to enamel growth and mineralization. We hypothesize that abnormal extracellular pH in the enamel matrix of mice with the cystic fibrosis gene knocked out (CF mice) results in altered enamel mineralization. The enamel...
Socio-economic differences in health and health behavior are well-known. Our hypothesis was that toothbrushing frequency in adolescents predicts their education level in adulthood. The aim was also to study the role of toothbrushing in adolescents' health-related lifestyle. Data from nationally...
Neurotransmission from sympathetic and peptidergic afferent fibers participates in the regulation of pulpal blood flow (PBF) via opposing effects. In this study, we directly tested the hypothesis that activation of pulpal sympathetic terminals inhibits exocytosis of immunoreactive calcitonin...
Molecular studies indicate that epigenetic events are important in determining how the internal enamel epithelium folds during odontogenesis. Since this process of folding leads to the subsequent arrangement of cusps on molar teeth, we hypothesized that intercuspal distances of human molar teeth...
The transcription factor Cbfa1 regulates osteoblast differentiation and expression of genes necessary for the development of a mineralized phenotype. The purpose of this study was to determine if Cbfa1 and BSPII gene expression are influenced by implant surface microtopography. Osteoblasts were...
Unpolymerized dental monomers can leach out into the oral biophase and are bioavailable for metabolism. We hypothesize that metabolites would be less toxic than parent monomers. We first identified the formation of metabolites from bisphenol F diglycidyl ether (BFDGE) and Bisphenol A glycidyl...
Recent investigations of the human subgingival oral flora based on ribosomal 16S cloning and sequencing have shown many of the bacterial species present to be novel species or phylotypes. The purpose of the present investigation was to identify potential periodontal pathogens among these newly...
Syndecan-1 expression is enhanced in cutaneous and mucosal wounds. We have previously demonstrated that wounding-induced syndecan-1 expression in the skin occurs transcriptionally, through a fibroblast-growth-factor-inducible element (FiRE). Here, we show that FiRE is also activated in mucosal...
