The aim of this study was to investigate plaque formation on natural tooth surfaces by a replica technique, which offers investigation of oral hard tissue surfaces by scanning electron microscopy. This method is recommended in cases where direct investigation is impossible such as when non- extracted teeth are investigated or when extracted teeth are expected to be influenced by the dehydration and drying process. The representative photographs demonstrate the accumulation of plaque in two days.
