The proteomes of oral fluid collected from gingival crevices of healthy people and those with gingivitis and chronic periodontitis have been compared by researchers in Australia to try to understand the underlying biological processes that take place during oral disease progression. Fluid was collected with a microcapillary tube from theContinue Reading

Silver Nanoparticle-Integrated Plasma Polymer Coating Prevents Bacterial Infection in Dental Implants. The new plasma coating not only inhibits bacterial growth, but also enables the implant to rapidly form a longer lasting bond with the jawbone. This adhesion was accomplished by integrating silver nanoparticles onto the implacts surface. The nanoparticles wereContinue Reading
