Extensive Range of Applications from Supragingival to Subgingival Use Perio-Mate removes plaque biofilm
and moderate stains around the supragingival, gingival margin and in the pocket up to approximately 3mm, without use of the nozzle tip.
accumulation in the oral cavity is an essential etiologic factor of caries and gingivitis and plaque removal with a toothbrush has been shown to reverse the process of gingivitis.
Antibacterial effect of taurolidine (2%) on established dental plaque biofilm
Prior research has demonstrated elimination of microbial dental plaque biofilm
prevents gingivitis and dental cavities.
Early dental caries can be prevented and controlled if the multiple causative factors, namely a susceptible tooth surface, the presence of cariogenic acid producing bacteria in dental plaque biofilm
, and the exposure to ingested sugars, are reduced.
1) Periodontitis is a polymicrobial disease in which disease expression involves intricate interactions of the plaque biofilm
with the host inflammatory response and subsequent alterations in bone and connective tissue metabolism.
It is one of the major causes of tooth loss in adults3,4 that affects human populations in many countries with high prevalence rate and plaque biofilm
as being major factor in causing periodontal disease.
9% of plaque biofilm

The denaturing gel gradient electrophoresis (PCR-DGGE) is a quantitative and qualitative analysis of polymicrobial ecosystems such as plaque biofilm
Germs in the mouth multiply and can become embedded in a thick layer called plaque biofilm
Anton Van Leeuwenhoek scraped the plaque biofilm
from his teeth and observed the "animalculi" that produced this microbial community with his primitive microscope.
utilized a scanning electron microscope (SEM) to evaluate the effectiveness of a Waterpik([R])dental water jet at removing plaque biofilm
