Though Mouth Matters discusses biofilms, not everyone has had the opportunity to see their formation under a microscope. The following video should help motivate people to manage their health, thus influence their formation.

Biofilm Growth Over 8 Hour Time Period

It isn’t individual oral microbes we should worry about. It is when they coalesce into biofilms on teeth that they become a concern. Dental plaques are half microbes, half protective slimy matrix. Within them bacteria become social, learn to work together, protect each other, and act in ways never imagined in the name of group survival. The bacteria share nutrients and defenses to protect and feed the community’s interior. At this stage, they are impenetrable and therefore resistant to detergents, antibiotics, and the body’s defenses. This is one reason ozone needs to play a bigger role in oral prevention and repair.
