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).

Objective: To compare the efficacy of Curaprox® CS 5460 Ultra Soft and Oral-B® Indicator Plus toothbrushes in dental plaque removal. Methods: 50 adult participants will be included in the ...
The purpose of this study is to determine in situ the bacterial viability, thickness and bacterial diversity of a biofilm formed on different substrates in comparison to a naturally tooth-...
This study evaluates if electric toothbrushes with a 3D action (rotation / oscillation and pulsation) are more effective than manual toothbrushes in removing plaque and reducing gingival i...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the gingival margin stability with the use of oscillating-rotating toothbrushes compared to manual toothbrushes.
The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of three methods for removal of dental biofilm when compared to dental toothbrushing control. Twenty patients were diagnosed and ra...
To compare the efficacy of dental plaque removal between manual and powered toothbrushes in individuals with syndactyly.
A novel algal-bacterial symbiosis system based on sequencing batch suspended biofilm reactor (A-SBSBR) was developed for simultaneously enhanced nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) removal from domestic w...
Pseudomonas stutzeri XL-2, with the capability of heterotrophic nitrification-aerobic denitrification and biofilm-forming, was applied in a sequencing batch biofilm reactor (SBBR) for bioaugmented tre...
The isolate Coriolopsis sp. (1c3) was cultured on muslin cloth to induce formation of filamentous biofilm. The biofilm and the free-mycelium forms (control) were then used to treat two triphenylmethan...
The low-strength domestic wastewater (LSDW) treatment with low chemical oxygen demand (COD) has drawn extensive attention for the poor total nitrogen (TN) removal performance. In the present study, an...
A COAGULASE-negative species of STAPHYLOCOCCUS found on the skin and MUCOUS MEMBRANE of warm-blooded animals. Similar to STAPHYLOCOCCUS EPIDERMIDIS and STAPHYLOCOCCUS HAEMOLYTICUS, it is a nosocomial pathogen in NICU settings. Subspecies include generally antibiotic susceptible and BIOFILM negative capitis and antibiotic resistant and biofilm positive urealyticus isolates.
Devices used in the home by persons to maintain dental and periodontal health. The devices include toothbrushes, dental flosses, water irrigators, gingival stimulators, etc.
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.
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.
Removal of an implanted therapeutic or prosthetic device.
Dentistry is the study, management and treatment of diseases and conditions affecting the mouth, jaw, teeth and their supporting tissues (Oxford Medical Dictionary) The work of a dentist ranges from regular patient check-up to orthodontics and surgery....
