Photobleaching of red fluorescence in oral biofilms.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Many species of oral bacteria can be induced to fluoresce due to the presence of endogenous porphyrins, a phenomenon that can be utilized to visualize and quantify dental plaque in the laboratory or clinical setting. However, an inevitable consequence of fluorescence is photobleaching, and the effects of this on longitudinal… (More)
