 Synonyms & Historicals
Biofilms .
Biofilm .
Biological Film .
Biological Layer .
Encrustations, formed from microbes (bacteria, algae, fungi, plankton, or protozoa) embedding in extracellular polymers, that adhere to surfaces such as teeth (DENTAL DEPOSITS); PROSTHESES AND IMPLANTS; and catheters. Biofilms are prevented from forming by treating surfaces with DENTIFRICES; DISINFECTANTS; ANTI-INFECTIVE AGENTS; and antifouling agents. .
Surface-Active Agents .
Amphiphilic Agents .
Surface Active Agents .
Tensides .
Active Agents, Surface .
Agents, Amphiphilic .
Agents, Surface Active .
Agents, Surface-Active .
Surfactants .
Agents that modify interfacial tension of water; usually substances that have one lipophilic and one hydrophilic group in the molecule; includes soaps, detergents, emulsifiers, dispersing and wetting agents, and several groups of antiseptics. .
Dental Etching .
Etching, Dental .
Preparation of TOOTH surfaces, and of materials bonded to teeth or DENTAL IMPLANTS, with agents and methods which roughen the surface to facilitate adhesion. Agents include phosphoric or other acids (ACID ETCHING, DENTAL) and methods include LASERS. .

Cell Surface Antigens .
Antigens on surfaces of cells, including infectious or foreign cells or viruses. They are usually protein-containing groups on cell membranes or walls and may be isolated. .

Antiflatulents .
Defoaming Agents .
Foam Retardants .
Agents used to prevent the formation of foam or to treat flatulence or bloat. .
