Evaluation of the Anti-Bacterial Effect of Ginger Aqueous Extract on Bacterial Flora of Patient with Periimplantitis
Aim: To determine the concentration of aqueous ginger extract that inhibits the growth of anaerobic bacterial flora of patient with periimplantitis. Material and Methods: It included 12 partially edentulous subjects (12 males) aged 40-65 years with one or more periimplantitis implants. Peri-implantitis criteria, probing depth was 4-6 mm, bleeding on probing at one or more site, radiographic bone loss was about 0.5-2 mm. Subgingival bacterial specimens were collected from infected implants of each person using sterile curate and immediately transported through anaerobic transport media. Results: Revealed that aqueous ginger extract minimum inhibition concentration for Total anaerobic bacteria was (25% percent) on blood agar media. Conclusion: The antibacterial activity increased from 25% percent and above with the rise in the concentration of aqueous ginger extract, and selenium nanoparticles had no impact at 0.5 percent, 1 percent, 2 percent concentration.
