INTRODUCTION In this study we compared the antibacterial effect of triple antibiotic paste (TAP), double antibiotic paste (DAP), and calcium hydroxide [Ca(OH)2] against Enterococcus faecalis and Porphyromonas gingivalis biofilm. METHODS The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC), minimum bactericidal concentration (MBC), minimum biofilm inhibitory concentration (MBIC), and biofilm formation were measured by using microtiter plate methods. The 2 bacteria were treated with different dilutions… CONTINUE READING
