Abstract

Caries lesions result from the interaction between dental biofilm and sugars. Since the biofilm is an important component in the etiology of the disease, biofilm models have been developed to study the cariogenicity of dietary sugars, as well as the anticaries effect of substances. Two of such models, termed as "static" or "continuous flow," are described in details here together with their advantages, limitations, and applications.
