Azithromycin for Dental Plaque
|3,798 Patients Studied||28 Studies (View)|
Definition: Azithromycin is an azalide, a subclass of macrolide antibiotics. Azithromycin is one of the world's best-selling antibiotics, marketed in the United States under the name Zithromax, and under a variety of brand names and generic labels worldwide. The oral cavity contains the only known anatomical aspect of the human body that does not have a regulated system of shedding surfaces: the teeth. This allows a numerous amount of microorganisms to adhere to the surface of teeth for long periods of time. These multiple species of bacteria become dental biofilm. Dental biofilm, more commonly referred to as dental plaque, is composed of about a thousand bacteria that take part in the complex ecosystems of the mouth. (SOURCE: Wikipedia)
