The 10 species identified by the ParoCheck10[R] microarray detection system were as follows: The red complex: Porphyromonasgingivalis, Tannerella forsythia and Treponema denticola; the orange complex: Campylobacter rectus, Fusobacterium nucleatum, Parvimonas micra and Prevotella intermedia; the green complex: Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans and Eikenella corrodens; the blue complex: Actinomyces viscosus (12).
Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans (Aa) (formerly Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans) and Porphyromonas gingivalis (Pg) are the major pathogenic bacteria species in the etiology of periodontal diseases, whereas the normal oral flora related to the disease are Prevotella intermedia (Pi), Tannerella forsythia (Tf) and Treponema denticola (Td) (7-9).
The red complex, which includes Porphyromonas gingivalis, Treponema denticola, and Tannerella forsythia (formerly Bacteroides forsythus), encompasses the most important pathogens in adult periodontal disease.

For the antimicrobial activity experiments, the following strains were used: Actinomyces naeslundii ATCC 12104, Streptococcus gordonii ATCC 10558, Porphyromonas gingivalis ATCC 33277, Fusobacterium nucleatum ATCC 25586, and Tannerella forsythia ATCC 43037.
Este estudio, descriptivo transversal busco determinar la prevalencia de genotipos FimA de P gingivalis aisladas de muestras subgingivales de sujetos sanos, con gingivitis y con periodontitis cronica y determinar su asociacion con otros microorganismos periodontopaticos como Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, Treponema denticola y Tannerella forsythia.
The pooled plaque samples were subjected to Culture and Multiplex Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) analysis to identify Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, Porphyromonasgingivalis, Tannerella forsythia and Treponemadenticola (Figure 5)
Therefore, the aim of this study was to indicate the possible clinical benefit of as-annealed Ag doped Ti[O.sub.2] nanotubes in providing antimicrobial properties due to their Ag content against the adhesion of peri-implantitis-associated bacteria Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, Tannerella forsythia, and Campylobacter rectus for transmucosal components of dental implants.
gingivalis, Tannerella forsythia, and Treponema denticola, a typical composition of periodontal biofilms, despite the fact that the latter alone is unaffected by Oxantel.
