A new cost effective approach for plaque control and tooth decay prevention
Biocompatible nanoparticle based hydrogen peroxide combination therapy for the treatment of dental biofilms and prevention of tooth decay Problem: Dental biofilms (plaque) are multilayer bacterial communities that exist within a protective extracellular matrix, thus making them extremely difficult to treat or remove. Over time, a highly acidic...
