Plaque Bacteria: Ecology, Pathogenesis, and Control
The human mouth contains an abundance of microorganisms. These oral bacteria have certain characteristics in common. For example, all possess surface molecules and the concomitant capacity for celltocell interaction. This contributes to their ability to form dental plaque. Plaque is a protective bacterial film which naturally accumulates on teeth. It has a number of beneficial effects. Excessive plaque formation, however, may also contribute to diseases such as gingivitis and peridontitis. Therefore, bacterial proliferation in the mouth requires some form of control. Various means can be employed to maintain microbial populations at levels compatible with health. Currently, antimicrobial agents are used. Perhaps in the future additional methods will evolve.
