Oral diseases control by modulating biofilms pathogenicity

Dental caries and periodontal disease are biofilm-related infections. An imbalance in biofilms composition can lead to disbyosis and onset of the disease. The final aim of preventive therapies should be to restore healthy mutual relationships between oral biofilms and human body rather than achieving biofilm eradication, microbial killing or antifouling surfaces.

In this sense, a biofilm can act as a reservoir for the incorporation and release of active principles.
