To compare the aerobic microbes in supragingival plaque of Chronic Periodontitis (GCP) and Genera Aggressive periodontitis (GAP) patients.


Microbial aspect of GCP and GAP varies in terms of species, number and hence the effect on the tooth. It is important to differentiate between the types to introduce specific medication.


Patients with GAP manifest thin deposits of dental plaque with little or no calculus, patients with GCP usually have very complex and thick deposits of polymicrobial communities on affected root surface. Potential periodontal pathogens are usually a part in the biofilm, their biochemical and physiological properties are modified by their interactions with other members of the biofilm community. Based on data from previous studies, GAP and GCP have a different microbial manifestation.


From a research perspective, it is essential that these diseases be clearly distinguished in order to gain a complete understanding of their etiology and pathogenesis.



Chronic Periodontitis, aggressive periodontitis, , microbes, supragingival plaque, aerobes.
