Increased antibacterial activity of zinc polycarboxylate cement by the addition of chlorhexidine gluconate in fixed prosthodontics.

Abstract

PURPOSE This study evaluated the antibacterial activity of water-activated zinc polycarboxylate cement with adjunctive 0.12% chlorhexidine gluconate on the subgingival microbiota in fixed partial dentures. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-six teeth prepared as fixed partial denture abutments in 9 patients were cemented randomly using water-activated zinc… (More)
