Abstract

Electric toothbrushes were evaluated using a model of plaque removal by fluid shear forces. Sucrose-supplementation during plaque development did not affect the removal of bacteria from biofilm exposed to ‘low-energy’ shear but did increase their resistance to ‘high-energy’ shear. The toothbrush supplying high-energy shear forces removed significantly more viable bacteria.
