OBJECTIVES Cold plasma (CP) has been shown to be effective even against multiresistant microorganisms. As previous investigations on the effect of CP in root canals showed promising results, the aim of the present study was to analyze the bactericidal efficacy of CP in different depths of infected dentin. METHODS 32 standardized root canals of human(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the antimicrobial effect of cold plasma (CP) on infected dentin surfaces in vitro and ex vivo. To examine the effect of cold plasma on root surfaces, 24 root surfaces were infected with Streptococcus mitis. Specimens were randomly divided into three groups: Within the control group (C), root surfaces were rinsed with(More)
Surface decontamination remains challenging in peri-implant infection therapy. To investigate the bactericidal efficacy of tissue tolerable plasma, S. mitis biofilms were created in vitro on 32 microrough titanium dental implants. Biofilm imaging was performed by confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The implants(More)
