Abstract:

Scanning microscopy was performed on the root surface of tooth removed due to severe periodontal destruction as a result of periodontosis. The cemental surface was covered with markedly similar rod shaped microorganisms. These findings provide additional evidence that this disease is caused by a characteristic bacteria, located at the base of the advancing lesion. Author
