Evaluating the antimicrobial activity of chewing gum extracts on oral micro flora
MetadataShow full item record
The antibacterial potency of chewing gum extracts mainly the polyol-sugar alcohols, such as xylitol has used as an alternative treatment in reduction of dental caries in children since 1975 to levels which cannot lead to tooth decay. The extract samples were prepared using motor and using extracted gum components such as polyols which include mannitol, sorbitol, xylitol and of S. mutant’s bacteria in the mouth, which reduces the amount of plaque and may help prevent tooth decay. This study aimed at isolating microbes from the oral cavity and extracting of chewing (EFSA J. 2008). A 2017 systematic review Trusted Source suggests that xylitol reduces the amount extracts had no inhibitory effect to all bacteria isolates. All the bacterial isolates were resistant, gum ingredients and testing the antimicrobial potential of the extracts. Prevention of tooth decay pestle added Distilled water and passively filtered with bacteriological filters. Bacteria samples were gotten from saliva, cultured, isolated and sub-cultured then tested all samples for even to Doxycycline a positive control. Further research on identifying the isolates and using of antimicrobial activity using discs’ diffusion technique on nutrient agar media. All the sample others released from chewing gum will keep the mouth all day clean and regulates harmful bacteria alternative positive control. Testing samples directly on well-known streptococci mutants which relates directly to dental caries.
