2016-11-01 07:23:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The mechanical control of supragingival biofilm is accepted as one of the most important measures to prevent dental caries and periodontal diseases. Nevertheless, maintaining dental surfaces biofilm-free is not an easy task. In this regard, numerous studies researches have demonstrated the effectiveness of mouthwashes containing antimicrobial active ingredients that prevent and control both supragingival biofilm and gingivitis, specially when used adjunctively to mechanical oral hygiene regimens.

Description
