About the project

Dental caries is the most common biofilm-induced disease worldwide. In this study, we are investigating whether low levels of fluoride in milk can prevent caries development and progression in young adolescents. We are also investigating whether specific disease-inducing activities (acid-tolerance) in dental biofilms can predict caries.
