Monitoring of extracellular pH in young dental biofilms grown in vivo in the presence and absence of sucrose

Background and objective: pH in dental biofilms is of central importance for the development of caries. We used the ratiometric pH-sensitive dye C-SNARF-4 in combination with digital image analysis to monitor extracellular pH in dental biofilms grown in situ with and without sucrose supply. Design:...
