In this thesis, the dental plaque-pH after acid and alkali formation in vivo in relation to the individual caries status were examined. Two chair-side methods were also developed; the "strip method" to measure in situ the interproximal, supragingival plaque-pH (Study I) and a microtiter plate format of RUT (Rapid Urease Test) to grade bacterial urease activity in vitro and ex vivo (Study III). Hopefully studies on pH and alkali formation in the dental plaque can contribute to finding measures for assessment of the individual caries risk.

The overall aim of this thesis was to examine the effect of malocclusion on the everyday life of adolescents and to explore the relationship between professionally assessed treatment need and patient demand for treatment, and to develop a condition-specific instrument predicting treatment need through self-assessed treatment demand of adolescents.

​The aims of this thesis were to

  1. Evaluate in situ the caries wall lesion development in different composite-dentin interfaces to investigate if the presence and location of bonding material in the gaps influence wall caries lesion development;
  2. Evaluate the effect of ageing with a new mechanical device on the microtensile bond strength and the fracture patterns of adhesive systems to dentin;
  3. Evaluate in vitro dentin caries wall lesion development of failed bonded composite-dentin interfaces and compare with non-bonded situations where no adhesive was used or adhesive was applied only on the dentin, using a gel caries model;
  4. Evaluate in vitro the dentin caries wall lesion development of failed bonded composite-dentin interfaces investigating the presence of two adhesive bonding materials in the gaps, using a microcosm biofilm model
