Effect of oral sprays on adhesion of dental plaque bacteria to enamel surface. The bovine enamel specimens were applied with oral spray solution and were cultured in Brain Heart Infusion broth (Becton, Dickinson and Co.) with dental plaque bacteria. The bacteria adhere to specimens were stained with Coomassie brilliant blue G-250 dye. For density quantification, pictures were acquired and captured into ImageJ (National Institutes of Health) and were calculated in pixel intensities. Each values of individual experiments were expressed as a mean± standard error of three independent experiments. *p<0.01 versus distilled water. Refer to Table 1 for the manufacturers’ information.
