A microbial biofilm is a state of micro-organisms that stick to each other and adhere to a living or a non-living surface to form a film-like structure. They secrete a self-produced matrix of extracellular polymeric substance (EPS) and frequently embedded within it which may also be referred to as slime. Which are generally found in natural, industrial and hospital settings. On our teeth, we can found theses microbial biofilm which causes tooth decay or gum disease.
