Oral Care and Dentistry
Dental plaque is the most well-known and researched area of dental biofilm research. 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 to prevent and remove biofilm material. Anti-microbial products can also prevent chronic microbial build-up in dental unit waterlines and on dental surfaces equipment.
