Dental biofilms harbor harmful microorganisms that causes dental caries and periodontal diseases.
Chitosan is a naturally occurring polysaccharide with antimicrobial properties against a wide
spectrum of bacteria and fungus. Chitosan nanoparticles possess unique physicochemical
characteristics, when utilized properly can be used to prevent the formation or reduction of plaque
bio mass by acting against the microbes present in the plaque and disruption of mature biofilm
