LEARNING
objectives

The webinar will touch basic knowledge in oral biofilm formation but will translate it also in the dental daily practice and will discuss approaches against dangerous biofilms. It shows why a microorganism is different to one in a free floating stage and what does it mean for prevention and therapy of biofilm-associated diseases as dental caries and periodontitis.

Learning objectives:

  • Most microorganisms in oral cavity exit in biofilms.
  • A biofilm is not just microorganisms.
  • Biofilms are associated with the major oral diseases caries and periodontitis.
  • Antimicrobials alone are not effective against microorganisms in biofilm.
  • Potential new treatment options are under investigation.
