Data: Sucrose-mediated formation and adhesion strength of Streptococcus mutans biofilms on titanium

Tony Butera, Laura J. Waldman & Martha E. Grady
Bacterial biofilms associated with implants remain a significant source of infections in dental, implant, and other healthcare industries due to challenges in biofilm removal. Biofilms consist of bacterial cells surrounded by a matrix of extracellular polymeric substance (EPS), which protects the colony from many countermeasures, including antibiotic treatments. Biofilm EPS composition is also affected by environmental factors. In the oral cavity, the presence of sucrose affects the growth of Streptococcus mutans that produce acids, eroding...
