BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to compare the detection of Porphyromonas gingivalis using a fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) technology with commonly used diagnostic methods in salivary and subgingival plaque samples from subjects with dental implants. P. gingivalis was considered as a marker for a pathogenic microbiota. MATERIAL AND METHODS Ninety-seven adult subjects were recruited, including periodontally healthy controls with no dental implants, implant… CONTINUE READING
