Novel nanoparticle-based approach detects and treats oral plaque without drugs

from Bioengineering

When the good and bad bacteria in our mouth become imbalanced, the bad bacteria form a biofilm, which can cause cavities, and if left untreated over time, can lead to cardiovascular and other inflammatory diseases like diabetes and bacterial pneumonia. A team of researchers from the University of Illinois has recently devised a practical nanotechnology-based method for detecting and treating the harmful bacteria that cause plaque and lead to tooth decay and other detrimental conditions. more
