DIAZ CABALLERO, A.J. et al. Biofilms like expression of quorum sensing mechanism: A revision. Avances en Periodoncia [online]. 2011, vol.23, n.3, pp.195-201. ISSN 1699-6585.

In modern periodontics, we must check continuously many concepts that are driving some time, which does not allow the progress and development of many structures of thinking in solving problems such as periodontal disease in all its various forms presentation. The concept of biofilms is in progress so overwhelming that the ability of discussion is completely necessary and indispensable, so that you can update and change a plaque idea to a concept much more complex, dynamic, and that genetic exchange what has been established to date. Biofilms are a non-random, is a form of growth and sustainability quite advanced and structured to facilitate the survival of the pathogens included in these partnerships. This article is a narrative review, mechanisms such as quorum sensing, biofilms and the relationship of these with periodontal diseases that affect many people at all latitudes worldwide. It explores various concepts and research areas with potential application in biomedical experimentation level.

Keywords : Biofilms; quórum sensing; gene expression; periodontitis; dental plaque; Mesh.
