It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what is causing a tooth to grow in the first place, but a recent study suggests that it’s not a simple matter of bacteria or fungi.
Researchers in Denmark and the Netherlands have found that a particular protein that makes it difficult for bacteria to grow inside teeth can cause teeth to break apart, potentially leading to an infection.
The researchers used mice to examine whether the protein, called α-galactosidase, plays a role in the formation of abscesses in mice and rats.
In the laboratory, the researchers saw that when α-Galactosidsase was present, the bacteria were more likely to grow.
The researchers suggest that this is because α-GASs can be found in a range of organisms, including soil bacteria and some of the animals in the study.
This study adds to growing evidence that antibiotics can play a role, but they don’t appear to be the main culprit.
The main problem is that the α-gastrointestinal tract is extremely sensitive to antibiotics, and it’s still unclear whether the bacteria are acting on the gut or the gut itself.
If antibiotics are the culprit, it’s probably not because of any sort of infection, as there’s no evidence that they cause the abscess to grow or cause it to break down.
The scientists believe the protein causes the absents to form by binding to a receptor on the surface of the tooth’s surface called a gastric peptide receptor.
The study, published in the journal PLoS One, shows that when the receptor is present, α-PGs are released from the surface, and the bacteria quickly form a thick, sticky coating.
When they are released, the coating can attach to the gum.
This is a pretty common finding, and this type of receptor can also be found on some of our teeth.
However, it seems that α- Galactosins can bind to the surface and act as an antibiotic.
This suggests that the protein could be involved in this process.
The authors are now trying to find out whether other bacteria in the gut can also grow in this way, and if so, whether that might also be responsible for the absences.
They’re hoping to develop new drugs that block α- galactosides, but even if they are successful, it may be decades before we know for sure whether antibiotics can cause abscess formation.
The discovery may also help researchers identify other proteins that might be involved.
