IN VITRO ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITY OF POVIDONE-IODINE AGAINST SELECTED HUMAN RED AND ORANGE COMPLEX PERIODONTAL PATHOGENS.

Objectives: Successful treatment of severe human periodontitis lesions has been shown to be highly dependent upon adequate suppression or eradication of key bacteria, most often species classified as red and orange complex periodontal pathogens, in the subgingival microbiome of diseased periodontal sites. Multiple clinical studies have reported superior therapeutic outcomes when conventional mechanical root debridement of severe periodontitis lesions is supplemented with professional periodontal pocket delivery of a povidone-iodine antiseptic solution, which offers antimicrobial effects...
