In order to overcome the inadequacies in current oral mucosal treatment methods, a modular treatment strategy is proposed which utilizes biotin-streptavidin affinity linkages for developing multilayered polymeric self-assemblies. It is hypothesized that affinity based layer-by-layers (LBL) can be self-assembled through a series of mouth rinses over the oral wound surface, which will offer a desired regenerative treatment strategy through its stable barrier effects. Hence, evaluating the barrier stability of LBLs against harsh intraoral environment is a key requirement to validate its application in oral wounds.
