With optimum—including interdental—oral hygiene, the formation of biofilm is repeatedly disrupted and gingi-val health is maintained. 45 One-week-old Plaque—File Size: KB. Dental Plaque Definition (NCI) A biofilm that contains numerous microorganisms that adheres to the teeth. Definition (MSH) A film that attaches to teeth, often causing DENTAL CARIES and GINGIVITIS. It is composed of MUCINS, secreted from salivary glands, and microorganisms. Definition (CSP).

With the variety of toothbrushes on the market, the question arises, which toothbrush is best suited to maintain oral health? This thematic review focuses first on plaque formation mechanisms and then on the plaque removal effectiveness of ultrasonic toothbrushes and their potential in preventing oral diseases like periodontitis, gingivitis, and caries. How Can Plaque Formation Be Prevented? Plaque is the sticky, colorless film of bacteria that forms on teeth. It makes teeth "feel fuzzy" to the tongue and is most noticeable when teeth are not.

Therefore, control of the dental plaque biofilm is a major objective of dental professionals and critical to the maintenance of optimal oral health. This article reviews the characteristics of dental biofilm, its role in the etiology of periodontal diseases, and strategies for controlling the biofilm to promote health.

Periobasics Basic Periodontology, Recent Posts Introduction to dental plaque. Dental plaque is a complex community of micro-organisms that forms on the surfaces of teeth and restorations and has been implicated as the primary etiological factor in the development of periodontal diseases 1, far, more than different bacterial species have been identified from the human oral cavity, and.

Dental plaque is an adherent, bacterial film, and is the main pathological agent for periodontal diseases. The formation of dental plaque can occur both supragingivally and subgingivally. The development of plaque is a three-step process. Following the formation of a pellicle, pioneer micro-organisms will adhere to it, proliferate and form by: Andrew Joiner, in Handbook for Cleaning/Decontamination of Surfaces, Dental Plaque.

Dental plaque is a colourless or whitish substance that builds up on teeth and gums, particularly at the gum margin (Figure C).It is a biofilm made up of billions of bacteria, the majority of which are only found in the oral Concepts of dental plaque formation book [41].These grow in a mass of soluble and insoluble carbohydrates.

Dental plaque is an adherent, bacterial film, and is the main pathological agent for periodontal diseases. The formation of dental plaque can occur both supragingivally and subgingivally.

The development of plaque is a three‐step by: Abstract. Dental plaque is a complex biofilm that accumulates on the hard tissues (teeth) in the oral cavity. Although over bacterial species comprise plaque, colonization follows a regimented pattern with adhesion of initial colonizers to the enamel salivary pellicle followed by secondary colonization through interbacterial by:   Dental plaque.

Whereas microbial adhesion to tooth surfaces is a general prerequisite for initiation of plaque formation, microbial multiplication is probably the dominant feature in the build-up of dental plaque.

FORMATION OF DENTAL PELLICLE • Acquired pellicle may be defined as a homogenous, membranous, acellular film that covers the tooth surface and frequently form the interface between the tooth,the dental plaque and calculus.

The formation of dental plaque itself is very common and natural, however if left unattended to it can lead to harmful consequences.

The bacteria that forms dental plaque produces acid, which over time destroys tooth enamel. The structure of dental plaque refers to the manner in which the elements of dental plaque, predom- inantly bacteria, are organized and interrelated.

plaque formation Plaque formation. Plaque is a biofilm composed of several different kinds of bacteria and their products that develop over the enamel on a layer known as pellicle. The process of plaque formation takes several days to weeks and will cause the surrounding environment to become acidic if not removed.

The surface of enamel attracts salivary glycoproteins and bacterial products.Dental plaque formation starts almost immediately after you brush your teeth. Some minutes after brushing teeth, saliva derived glycoprotein deposits start to cover the tooth surface with what is referred to as "pellicle".

The formation of pellicle is the first step in dental plaque formation.Dental plaque is the main cause of cavities and gum disease, and can harden into tartar if not removed daily.
