Plaque disclosing aids are clinically used for detecting dental plaques in the oral cavity. Dental plaque is defined as a highly variable structure resulting from sequential colonization and growth of microorganisms on the surface of the teeth of gums consisting of micro-organisms of various stains and species. The micro-organisms are embedded in the extracellular and are composed of bacterial metabolic products and materials from the saliva and blood. Plaque disclosing aids are host-associated biofilms. The significance of the biofilm environment has been increasingly recognized as the environment itself alters the properties of the bacterial metabolic products. The biofilm community is initially formed through bacterial interactions with the tooth and then through physical and physiological interactions of different species within the microbial mass. Also, the bacteria found in the biofilm community are strongly influenced by external environmental factors which may be host mediated. Plaque disclosing aids are categorized in two types based on the application of a disclosing gel or the application of tablet. Plaque disclosing aids usually contain dyes, which turn bright red to indicate plaque buildup.
