About This Piece
The Art
Dental plaque, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Plaque consists of a film of bacteria (pink) embedded in a glycoprotein matrix. One of the bacteria in this sample is Fusobacterium nucleatum. The matrix is formed from bacterial secretions and saliva. Plaque is the main cause of tooth decay. The bacteria feed on sugars in food, producing acid as a waste product. This acid corrodes the teeth's enamel coating, resulting in dental caries. A build-up of dental plaque can also lead to inflamed and infected gums. Severe gum disease can lead to teeth falling out.

This photographic print leverages sophisticated digital technology to capture a level of detail that is absolutely stunning. The colors are vivid and pure. The high-quality archival paper, a favorite choice among professional photographers, has a refined luster quality.
