Microbial complexes in subgingival plaque.
It has been recognized for some time that bacterial species exist in complexes in subgingival plaque. The purpose of the present investigation was to attempt to define such communities using dataExpand

Periodontal microbial ecology.
The authors have taken the liberty of presenting this manuscript in two parts. The first is a brief primer on microbial ecology, because, although the importance of microbial ecology in periodontalExpand

Comparison of the microbiota of supra- and subgingival plaque in health and periodontitis.
BACKGROUND, AIMS The purpose of the present investigation was to compare the microbial composition of supra and subgingival plaque in 22 periodontally healthy (mean age 32+/-16 years) and 23 adultExpand

Systemic anti-infective periodontal therapy. A systematic review.
BACKGROUND Periodontal diseases are infections and thus systemically administered antibiotics are often employed as adjuncts for their control. There are conflicting reports as to whether theseExpand

Comparisons of subgingival microbial profiles of refractory periodontitis, severe periodontitis, and periodontal health using the human oral microbe identification microarray.
BACKGROUND This study compared the subgingival microbiota of subjects with refractory periodontitis (RP) to those in subjects with treatable periodontitis (GRs = good responders) or periodontalExpand
