Microbubbles Could Help Remove Dental BiofilmsNews
Scientists have conducted a study to look for better ways for dentists to remove plaque and prevent complications. The team studied the efficiency of a cavitating jet, where high-speed fluid is injected by a nozzle through water to create very tiny bubbles of vapour. When these bubbles collapse, they produce strong shockwaves that are able to remove contaminants like bacterial biofilms.READ MORE
