    Firstly, there is the initial transport of bacteria to tooth surface.
    • This is followed by reversible adsorption of the bacteria on to the pellicle surface.
    • Less reversible attachment of bacteria to tooth surface then occurs.
    • These stages are repeated, forming new layers of bacterial adherence.
    • Finally, there is growth of the attached organisms, leading to the formation of a ‘climax’ community
