This study evaluated the ability of various chemotherapeutic and mechanical modalities to detoxify endotoxin-contaminated hydroxyapatite-coated dental implant surfaces as determined by the early attachment and growth of human gingival fibroblasts. Hydroxyapatite-coated test strips were contaminated with purified outer membranes of Escherichia coli and treated with citric acid, hydrogen peroxide, stannous fluoride, chlorhexidine gluconate, tetracycline HCl, polymyxin B, a plastic sonic scaler… CONTINUE READING
