OBJECTIVE The study is to evaluate the effect of surface roughness of titanium implants on bacterial adhesion and then to investigate the efficacy of the three cleaning treatments for bacterial removal in titanium surfaces. BACKGROUND DATA Although surface debridement is the basic element for treatment of peri-implantitis to reduce bacterial adhesion, adjunctive therapies such as antiseptics and laser debridement have been proposed to improve the nonsurgical treatment options of the peri… CONTINUE READING
