BIOFILMS

 

  • Biofilm is a multicellular microbial ‘community’ lifestyle in the form of a matrix produced by different members of the community.
  • Micro – colonies take different shapes just like a house!
  • Communities have their own primitive circulation in the form of ‘water channels’
  • They possess an advanced intercellular communication technique
  • Root canal infections are a form of BIOFILM infections
  • Biofilm ‘living’ provides defence against antimicrobials as well as allowing community members to become more resistant to antibiotics.
