Capacity of Biofilm Removal and Gingival Abrasion After Utilization Medium and Soft Toothbrushes
This study compared the removal of dental biofilm between soft and medium toothbrushes. The patients refrained from performing mechanical or chemical plaque control for 96 hours to allow dental biofilm accumulation on the tooth surfaces. After the period of dental biofilm formation, the quadrants were randomized and the participants brushed different quadrants with soft and medium toothbrushes, with or without dentifrice. The plaque indices were analyzed by a blinded examiner before and after toothbrushing. The 2Tone was used for plaque disclosure and analysis was performed by the Quigley-Hein index modified by Turesky et al. (1970).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
High molecular weight mucoproteins that form a protective biofilm on the surface of EPITHELIAL CELLS where they provide a barrier to particulate matter and microorganisms. Membrane-anchored mucins may have additional roles concerned with protein interactions at the cell surface.
Dental Devices, Home Care
Devices used in the home by persons to maintain dental and periodontal health. The devices include toothbrushes, dental flosses, water irrigators, gingival stimulators, etc.
Surgical removal of an obstructing clot or foreign material which has been transported from a distant vessel by the bloodstream. Removal of a clot at its original site is called THROMBECTOMY.
Surgical removal of an obstructing clot or foreign material from a blood vessel at the point of its formation. Removal of a clot arising from a distant site is called EMBOLECTOMY.
Removal of an implanted therapeutic or prosthetic device.
In this study we intend to find out the pattern of biofilm accumulation in vivo on various surface finishings. Our intention is to prepare Polymethylmetacrylate squers on orthodontical br...

Background: To evaluate the efficacy of manual toothbrushes of the same type with different bristle stiffness concerning plaque removal, gingivitis development and soft tissue trauma. Methods: In a ra...
Staphylococcus aureus is a major pathogen. It can form biofilm on the surfaces of medical devices and food equipment, which makes it more difficult to eradicate. To develop a novel method to eradicate...
In this report, the development of an online, noninvasive, measurement method of the biofilm thickness in a liquid phase is presented. The method is based in the analysis of the ultrasound wave pulse-...
The study of biofilm function, structure and microbial interactions might help to improve our understanding of biofilm wastewater treatment processes. However, few reports specifically address the inf...
A novel kind of biodegradable polymer, i.e., starch/polycaprolactone (SPCL) was prepared and used as carbon source and biofilm support for biological denitrification in a packed-bed bioreactor. The de...
