The aim of this study was to detect the presence of Filifactor alocis, Fusobacterium nucleatum, Parvimonas micra, Porphyromonas endodontalis, Porphyromonas gingivalis, Prevotella intermedia, Prevotella nigrescens, Prevotella tannerae, Tanerella forsythia, Treponema denticola, and Treponema socranskii in the PCs and RCs of primary teeth, as well as to compare the prevalence of these species in both environments.

Nitzan et al10 advocated the significance of anaerobic organisms in relation to the development of dry socket by observing the fibrinolytic activity from the anaerobic culture of Treponema denticola which is considered to be the causative organism in development of periodontal conditions.
11) The gram-negative bacteria Porphyromonas gingivalis, Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans (formerly Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans), Tannerella forsythia and Treponema denticola are strongly implicated in the etiology of periodontal disease.
In periodontitis, there is emergence of a more pathogenic flora which is comprised of organisms such as Porphyromonas gingivalis, Tannerella forsythenesis, Treponema denticola and also species of Campylobacteria, Fusobacterium, Prevotella and Peptostreptococci.
La forma mas severa de enfermedad periodontal es la periodontitis, secundaria como respuesta inflamatoria a la infeccion por germenes periodontales diversos (Porphyromonas gingivalis, Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, Treponema denticola, Tannerella forsythensis, entre otros) caracterizada por la destruccion del tejido conectivo y del soporte oseo para dar lugar a la perdida dentaria (3).
Over 400 different species of bacteria can be found in the biofilm infections that are responsible for the initiation of periodontal disease and certain clusters of these species, including Porphyromonas gingivalis, Tannerella forsythenis and Treponema denticola that are commonly associated with the disease.
In addition, during pregnancy, other periodontal pathogens, such as Tannerella forsythia, Porphyromonas gingivalis, Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, and Treponema denticola, should also be taken into account because of the relationship between certain subgingival species and preterm birth.
13) The subgingival plaque microorganisms Treponema denticola, Porphyromonas gingivalis, and Tannerella forsythia produce a Trypsin-like enzyme that can hydrolyze BANA.
