Abstract

The periodontal pocket provides a unique structural site for studies on host/bacterial interactions. The pocket is colonized by a complex but characteristic anaerobic bacterial flora. Many new taxa have been described that have now been supported by comparative rRNA sequence analysis. Within recent years, several molecular approaches have been used to… (More)
