Tooth decay is an infectious disease. In today’s modern dentistry, it has been understood that biofilm plays an important role in formation of tooth decays. Biofilm layer is a protective layer present in every mouth which contains approximately 700 bacteria. In individuals who have high risk of caries, biofilm layer is formed by %96 pathogen bacteria and this rate is only %1 in a healthy biofilm. Today, the complex structure of biofilm layer is understood clearly. Therefore, it is possible to reduce the risk of caries or stop it entirely.

“Biofilm scanning test” which is being used in many important dental clinics of the world, is a procedure of office conditions which only takes 1 minute. Tool measures the cellular ATP levels of bacteria in the biofilm layer and gives us a numeric value. This numeric value is the risk of caries formation in the biofilm layer in a mouth. Personal protective precautions, restorative and antimicrobial treatments are applied and tooth decays of the future are prevented.
