Abstract:

Oral cavity harbors most diverse microorganisms in the human body, providing distinct microbial habitats such as teeth and gingival sulcus. The resident microflora contains dynamic bacteria that grow and adhere to enamel pellicle. Periodontitis is most frequent infections of oral cavity and is often recognized as the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Periodontitis is caused by an imbalance between the host and bacterial interaction leading to clinical attachment loss and bone loss. Although scaling and root planning is considered as a gold standard for removal of the biofilm but it also has its own disadvantages. Recently, a new novel approach has been emerged known as Guided Biofilm Therapy which is helpful in effective removal of dental biofilm.
