Initial salivary pellicle formation on solid substrates studied by AFM.

Abstract

Organic layers of salivary biopolymers adsorbed on soft and hard oral tissues, referred to also as salivary pellicle, play a critical role with respect to all surface phenomena taking place in the oral cavity. The initial stages of pellicle formation are of great interest since they determine the ensuing processes of salivary biopolymer adsorption and… (More)
