Abstract

Diffusion in dental plaque is recognised to be important to caries formation. It has been postulated that plaque acts as a barrier to diffusion, thereby trapping harmful acid at the tooth surface. Extracellular polysaccharides, such as glucan, in the plaque matrix were thought to be the diffusion controlling component of plaque. However, there were no quantitative measurements to support these hypotheses.
