dental calculus

The evolution and changing ecology of the African hominid oral microbiome
We analyzed 124 dental biofilm metagenomes from humans, including Neanderthals and Late Pleistocene to present-day modern humans, chimpanzees, and gorillas, as well as New World howler monkeys for comparison.
Microbial differences between dental plaque and historic dental calculus are related to oral biofilm maturation stage
Here, we compare the microbial profiles of modern dental plaque, modern dental calculus, and historic dental calculus to establish expected differences between these substrates.
Differential preservation of endogenous human and microbial DNA in dental calculus and dentin
In this study, shotgun-sequenced data from paired dental calculus and dentin samples from 48 globally distributed individuals are compared using a metagenomic approach.
