Wolinella gen. nov., Wolinella succinogenes (Vibrio succinogenes Wolin et al.) comb. nov., and Description of Bacteroides gracilis sp. nov., Wolinella recta sp. nov., Campylobacter concisus sp. nov.,
We compared 46 strains of gram-negative, asaccharolytic, rod-shaped bacteria which were isolated from humans with gingivitis, periodontal pockets, and lesions in alveolar bone with 10 referenceExpand
Structure of the microbial flora associated with periodontal health and disease in man. A light and electron microscopic study.
Teeth slated for extraction were evaluated with respect to their periodontal status and classified accordingly into five categories; namely normal, gingivitis, periodontitis, periodontosis andExpand
Bacteroides forsythus sp. nov., a Slow-Growing, Fusiform Bacteroides sp. from the Human Oral Cavity
The characteristics of a group of slow-growing, fusiform, fastidious anaerobes isolated from advanced periodontal lesions in human oral cavities were examined. Our results indicated that 12 fusiformExpand

The periodontal probe has been and continues to be used as an important diagnostic instrument by the dental profession. The measurements recorded with the probe have generally been considered toExpand
Yeasts, enteric rods and pseudomonads in the subgingival flora of severe adult periodontitis.
The subgingival occurrence of yeasts and species of Enterobacteriacae and Pseudomonas was studied in 500 adults with severe periodontitis. All subjects had sites non-responding or “refractory” toExpand
Consensus Report: Chronic Periodontitis
It may affect a variable number of teeth and it has variable rates of progression. Chronic periodontitis is initiated and sustained by bacterial plaque, but host defense mechanisms play an integralExpand
The dentogingival epithelial surface area revisited.
Recent studies implicating periodontitis as a cause of systemic diseases have reported that the surface area of periodontal pockets exposed to bacterial biofilm ranges from 50 cm2 to 200 cm2. SinceExpand
Bacteroides gingivalis, Bacteroides intermedius and Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans in human periodontal diseases.
Bacteroides gingivalis, Bacteroides intermedius and Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans seem to be major pathogens in advancing periodontitis in man. First, these organisms are recovered in higherExpand
