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…
