Isolating plaque culprit could spell relief for gum disease
from Irish Dentist
The mechanism that oral bacteria use to form communities in the mouth has been identified, leading to hopes that plaque could one day be prevented by medication. Researchers from the University of Bristol hope that stripping some pathogenic mouth bacteria of the "access key" they use to form communities with other strains could help prevent gum disease and tooth loss in the future.
