    Nyland, Anja Nilsen; Nordtveit, Elin Serine; Bosse, Franziskus Johannes; Løes, Sigbjørn (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-02-14)
    Hevelser og smerter i kjeven er ofte assosiert med infeksiøs odontogen sykdom og vil typisk diagnostiseres og behandles hos tannlege. I noen tilfeller kan imidlertid ikke tanninfeksjoner påvises. Vi presenterer fire sykehistorier hos barn som illustrerer ulike utfordringer ved en velkjent, men relativt dårlig definert diagnose i medisinen.

    Lommi, Sohvi; Manzoor, Muhammed; Engberg, Elina; Agrawal, Nitin; Lakka, Timo A; Leinonen, Jukka; Kolho, Kaija Leena; Viljakainen, Heli (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-04-25)
    Excess sugar consumption—common in youth—is associated with poor health. Evidence on the relationship between sugar consumption and the oral microbiome, however, remains scarce and inconclusive. We explored whether the diversity, composition, and functional capacities of saliva microbiota differ based on the consumption of select sugary foods and drinks (“sweet treats”). Using 16S rRNA gene sequencing, ...

    Tansirichaiya, Supathep; Winje, Endre; Wigand, Johannes; Al-Haroni, Mohammed (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-05-27)
    The human oral cavity is one of the hotspots harboring multiple mobile genetic elements (MGEs), which are segments of DNA that can move either within bacterial genomes or between bacterial cells that can facilitate the spreading of genetic materials, including antimicrobial resistance genes. It is, therefore, important to investigate genes associated with the MGEs as they have a high probability of ...
