Abstract:: The pellicle on oral surfaces represents a central interface for the formation of biofilms. Among other things it causes the first adsorption of bacteria. The dynamics of pellicle formation, on tooth surfaces and the influence of oral therapeutics on the pellicle structure are fairly unknown. With the method of surface plasmon resonance (SPR), the formation of salivary pellicle structures on hydroxylapatite (HAP) surfaces covering a very thin (~50nm) layer gold on a glass prism was recorded in real time with…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
