HOSPITAL ACQUIRED INFECTIONS (HAIs)
Biofilm is one of the leading causes of HAIs, which account every year for 722,000 infections, 75,000 deaths and cost more than $30 billion to treat in US acute-care hospitals alone. In long-term care settings, patients with an indwelling device are at 3-fold greater risk of developing infection.
Biofilm, aka dental plaque, is a leading cause of Dental Caries, which is the main limitation to the longevity of composite restorations. Replacement dentistry accounts for 50%–70% of all restorations, costing in the U.S. alone more than $5 billion annually.
