  • The acquired pellicle is a tenacious organic layer covering the surface of teeth, protecting the underlying dental hard tissues. (biomedsearch.com)
  • This restoration of the natural tooth shade is achieved by having the teeth cleaned by a dental professional (commonly termed "scaling and polishing"), or at home by various oral hygiene methods. (wikipedia.org)
  • The question of a proper balance of dentifrice abrasivity and safety for human teeth, to avoid excessive wear and erosion of tooth structure, is a subject which has received continuing attention by dental authorities. (google.es)
  • The most important single factor contributing to periodontal disease is the accumulation of dental calculus (e.g., salivary tartar) on the teeth. (google.com)
  • What if you hardly ever consume soft drinks or eat anything acidic, but still have dental erosion on your teeth? (medicalxpress.com)
  • Dentists and scientists often find it difficult to determine why some people's teeth are affected by dental erosion and others not, despite of similar drinking and eating habits. (medicalxpress.com)
  • These people frequently expose their teeth to acid, and therefore have a high risk of developing dental erosion. (medicalxpress.com)
  • How do we explain that some individuals may have no signs of dental erosion despite frequently exposing their teeth to acid, while certain individuals who seem to do everything right, still develop dental erosion? (medicalxpress.com)
  • Dental pertains to the teeth, including dentistry. (wikipedia.org)
  • These correspond to the 10 primary teeth of each dental arch, and they signify the bud stage of tooth development. (wikipedia.org)
  • calculus
  • These compositions serve to clean and polish dental hard tissue in a novel manner such that accumulations of pellicle and materia alba and occurrence and reformation of calculus on oral hard tissue are markedly reduced and also enhance the effectiveness of anticariogenic adjuvants such as fluoride, stannous, zirconium ions, or combinations thereof.

  • The pellicle protects the photomask from damage and dirt Pellicle, the growth on the surface of a liquid culture, as in SCOBY Pellicle (cooking), a skin or coating of proteins on the surface of meat, fish or poultry, which allow smoke to better adhere the surface of the meat during the smoking process.

  • A clean tooth surface would immediately be colonised by salivary pellicles, which acts as an adhesive. (wikipedia.org)
