Bacterial acid tolerance – a new target for fluoridated milk
Title [en]
Bacterial acid tolerance – a new target for fluoridated milk
Abstract [sv]
Tandkaries är den vanligaste biofilminducerade sjukdomen i världen. I denna studie undersöker vi om låga nivåer av fluor i mjölk kan förhindra kariesutveckling och progression hos unga ungdomar. Vi undersöker också om specifika sjukdomsinducerande aktiviteter (syratolerans) i dentala biofilmer kan förutsäga karies.

Abstract [en]
Dental caries is the most common biofilm-induced disease worldwide. In this study, we are investigating whether low levels of fluoride in milk can prevent caries development and progression in young adolescents. We are also investigating whether specific disease-inducing activities (acid-tolerance) in dental biofilms can predict caries.
