The purpose of this study is to evaluate the sterilization effects of a newly developed low temperature multi gas plasma jet on oral pathogenic microorganisms (Streptococcus mutans [S. mutans], Lactobacillus fermentum [L. fermentum], Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans [A. actinomycetemcomitans]). Plasma gas which generated from O2, N2, Ar and 50% (O2+N2) was irradiated to the microbes. Effect of O2 plasma irradiation on S. mutans under scanning electron microscopy (SEM) was also observed. O2… CONTINUE READING
