BACKGROUND This study compared bacterial penetration through guided tissue regeneration (GTR) membranes impregnated with antibiotics. METHODS Three barrier membranes, expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) membrane, collagen membrane, and glycolide fiber composite membrane, were loaded with amoxicillin or tetracycline. The penetration of Streptococcus mutans and Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans (previously Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans) through the GTR membranes was achieved… CONTINUE READING
