Effects of mushroom on dental caries

Shamit Thaper , T. Lakshmi


One of the oral health problems which affects 60–90% of schoolchildren and majority of adults, is dental caries (tooth decay) which in fact is an infectious microbiologic disease of the teeth leading to localized dissolution and destruction of the calcified tissues. It can also be considered as one of the most common chronic diseases in the world. Nowadays, due to particular modifications in diets, there has been an increase in the prevalence of dental caries. However, evidence suggests the opposite. In developed countries, there is a notable decrease in dental caries in certain populations especially in the United States, Western Europe, New Zealand, and Australia. Hence, the review is aimed to focus on the pharmacological aspects of mushroom on dental caries.
