Objectives : The purpose of this study was to investigate the awareness towards oral health environmental changes and oral health in smokers and non-smokers in soldiers. Methods : Data were obtained from 350 soldiers serving at Unit M in Gwangju and Gyeonggi-do and ROTC candidates at University Y in Gyeonggi-do from April 28 to May 5, 2013. Collected data were analyzed by SPSS 12.0 program and a significant level was set at 0.05. Results : Non-smokers had more knowledge on tooth staining or gum diseases than smokers(p<0.05). The awareness towards the causes of oral cancer was not much different between the smokers and the non-smokers. The soldiers having dental health education tended to smoke less than those who had no education(p<0.05). The awareness towards individual oral health revealed no difference between the smokers and the non-smokers. Non-smokers had higher subjective knowledge on of the importance of the oral health, smoking influence on the oral health, and secondhand smoking impact on the health(p<0.05). Conclusions : The oral health education by the dental hygienists is very important in the military camps. Non-smokers tended to have higher knowledge on oral health than the non-smokers.

DOI : 10.13065/jksdh.2014.14.01.95
Objectives : The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of bamboo charcoal on Streptococcus mutans which is one of the most important causative agents of dental caries. Methods : S. mutans was incubated with or without bamboo charcoal and then changes were observed in its cell viability and antibacterial effect. Oral epithelial cells viabillity(human gingival fibroblast, HGF) was performed using MTT assay. Antibacterial effect was analyzed using a dilution plating method and agar diffusion method. Results : Oral epithelial cells, human gingival fibroblast (HGF) showed a tendency to increase in bamboo charcoal treatment solution concentrations(0.5, 1, 2, 3, 5, 10%). The bamboo charcoal had an antibacterial effect on S. mutans. Antibacterial effect of bamboo charcoal for the bacterium was 58%. Charcoal concentration of 2% and 5% in the inhibition zone showed a minimal growth, but the concentration of 10% bamboo charcoal in inhibition zone revealed a conspicuous antibacterial activity. Conclusions : Overall results suggested that the bamboo charcoal proved to be bactericidal effect on S. mutans.

DOI : 10.13065/jksdh.2014.14.01.101
Objectives : The purpose of this study was to evaluate the tooth whitening effect of 0.74% and 2.80% hydrogen peroxide toothpastes and safety on tooth and gingival tissue. Methods : Toothpastes containing 0.74% and 2.80% hydrogen peroxide were evaluated. In in-vitro test, some additives (sodium metaphosphate, sodium pyrophosphate and titanium dioxide) were added to the toothpastes. Hydroxyapatite specimens (HAPs) were made and stained using modified Stookey's methods. HAPs were treated for 1 hour at shaking incubator and brushed for 1,000 times as 250 gF with each diluted toothpaste. Before and after color was measured by colorimeter. Using double blind method, 99 Korean with natural maxillary anterior teeth were selected and the initial brightness (baseline) was measured by SHADEEYE-EX. Based on this measurement they were crossly distributed into control group (0% hydrogen peroxide), test 1 (0.74% hydrogen peroxide) and test 2 (2.80% hydrogen peroxide). After 2 weeks, people of each group were provided toothpaste and told to use 3 times a day right after every meal for 3 minutes. The brightness of teeth was measured 3 times for every one month. Results :
was statistically significant among three groups in shaking test.
of two test groups was statistically significant compared with control group but not between each test group in brushing test. After using toothpaste for 3 months, test 1 group and test 2 group were 15.89% and 31.23% more whitened compared with control group respectively (p<0.05). Rate of more whitened person of each test group was 24.2% and 40.5% more than control group respectively (p<0.05). There was no difference in the hypersensitivity during 3 months using toothpastes and no side effect on teeth or gums. Conclusions : Toothpastes containing 0.74% and 2.80% hydrogen peroxide showed tooth whitening effect and both were safe enough to use for tooth whitening.

DOI : 10.13065/jksdh.2014.14.01.109
Objectives : Prunus mume has been used for the folk medicine from old times. The purpose of the study was to investigate the antimicrobial activity of prunus mume extract to various oral microbes. Methods : This study was carried out to examine the antimicrobial effect of Prunus mume extract against oral microbes. Data were collected using a Dentocult SM Strip mutans and Dentocult LB Strip mutans from April 5 to May 4, 2013. A total of 36 experimental and 32 control group were selected for this study. Results : The MIC of Prunus mume extract was tested for 0.39% in S. mutans, S. salivarius and S. auerus, 0.78% in S. mitis, S. equi and E. coli. In vivo, experimental group showed significantly the lower Streptococcus mutans levels by the use of the gum contained Prunus mume extract from 15 days compared with control group(p=0.012). The reduction was more significant in Lactobacilli level of the experimental group than the control group(p=0.022). Conclusions : These findings suggest that the oral products containing Prunus mume extracts is effective in preventing oral diseases.

DOI : 10.13065/jksdh.2014.14.01.117
Objectives : The purpose of the study is to investigate the activities of Nelumbo nucifera leaf extracts on Streptococcus mutans, Streptococcus mitis, Streptococcus sobrinus, Porphyromonas gingivalis, Prevotella intermedia, and Treponema denticola. Methods : The inhibitory effect of lotus leaf extracts on the growth of oral bacteria was assessed in experiments with extracts from freshly harvested and pulverized lotus leaves and bacterial cultures of dental caries. Results : The results showed that N. nucifera extracts possess antimicrobial activity on all bacterial strains. The minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) values varied from 4 mg/ml to 10 mg/ml against antimicrobial activity. The relative growth ratio (RGR) against of N. nucifera extracts were determined as 50% in concentration of 4.0 mg/ml. The extract of N. nucifera was effective in reducing on the glucosyltransferase (GTase) activity of six strains in vitro. Conclusions : Methanol extracts of lotus leaves showed antimicrobial effects on three bacterial species causing dental caries and three bacterial species causing periodontitis, as well as inhibitory effects on GTase activity.
