Streptococcus mutans photoinactivation using a combination of a high potency photopolymerizer and rose bengal.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Long treatment periods to reach a substantial inactivation of microorganisms are one of the critical challenges in the photodynamic therapy field. METHODS Planktonic suspensions of Streptococcus mutans were treated in different groups: presence of rose bengal (RB at 2μM) and light exposure by a new high potency photopolymerizer (L at wavelength… (More)
