Antibacterial activities have been demonstrated on oral bacteria with inorganic antibacterial agents (ABAs) after their incorporations into an experimental self-etching primer (ESP) before curing. This study was to assess their biocompatibility and antibacterial activity after curing. Six ABAs were incorporated respectively into ESP for treating specimens. After curing, their bactericidal activities on Streptococcus mutans and influences to the early bacterial colonization were assessed by… CONTINUE READING
