Utility of Silver Nitrate Staining in Detection of Spirochetes from Oral Cavity of Periodontally Healthy and Diseased Individuals

Abstract

Background: Oral spirochetes play a definitive role in the etiology of periodontitis. But their study is hampered due to difficulty in cultivating them and molecular methods are expensive. Hence the study explores the possibility of using staining as a screening procedure for the study of oral spirochetes. Experimental approach: The study included 100… (More)
