In-Vitro Analysis of Planktonic and Biofilm Growth
June 6, 2014
There is little consensus on the most appropriate cement to use when restoring a cement-retained, implant- supported restoration. One consideration should be the interaction of pathogenic oral bacteria with restorative cements. Dr. Wadhwani and colleagues developed this study, published in the book Dental Implant Complications: Etiology, Prevention, and Treatment, to determine how oral bacteria associated with peri-implant disease grow in the presence of implant cements.
