Detection of periodontopathogenic bacteria with two different microbiological tests
Paksoy, Denis / Harnack, Lutz / Gonzales, José R / Bödecker, Rolf-Hasso / Meyle, Jörg
Microbiological tests have become a useful device in periodontal diagnostics. Knowledge of the grouping and quantity of specific bacteria in subgingival biofilms helps clinicians to expand their image of periodontal diseases beyond clinical findings and to evaluate treatment outcomes. Even if several microbiological diagnostic tests are available, there is little information on the advantages and disadvantages of specific test kits. The present research report deals with the comparison of the results of two different microbiological test kits.
