Dental Biofilm Test Methods
The concept of chronic microbial infections, specifically the term biofilm, entered the scientific and microbiological world in relation to dental biofilms. An example of a dental biofilm is plaque. Plaque is the most well-known and researched area of dental biofilm research with well understood causes and consequences.
Biofilm removal techniques and products have also undergone a large amount of research within the dental world. Removal techniques include teeth brushing and flossing, as well as biofilm disruption agents found in toothpastes and mouthwashes.
Despite the high body of knowledge in the dental industry, there is still a lot of research and development required. This includes the development of products that disrupt and remove oral biofilms as well as anti-microbial products. Anti-microbial products can prevent and remove biofilm material. They can also prevent chronic microbial buildup in dental unit waterlines and on dental surfaces equipment.
