    Incidence and Antibiotic Sensitivity of Anaerobic Bacteria in Dentoalveolar Abscess of Diabetic and Non-Diabetic Patients: A Cross Sectional Comparative Study
    Author(s): Tejashree R* and Annaji GA

    Background: The presentation of bacterial infection of dental origin is constantly changing and is a measurable reflection of modern evolution of oral flora, the poor host response is multifactorial and diabetes has long been considered as one of the factors reducing host response. Antibiotic resistance patterns may change over time, in Diabetic patient’s frequent use of broad-spectrum antibiotics in the treatment of oral infections and other infections may enhance the development of bacterial resistance. Aim is to compare the incidence, Antibiotic sensitivity of anaerobic isolates from Dentoalvelar abscess of Non-Diabetic and Diabetics. Method: This descriptive study was conducted on 120 patients, both Diabetic (60) and Non-Diabetic (60) patients with Dentoalveolar abscess. Purposive sampling was done. The pus sample collected; cultured (aerobically and anaerobically). Morpholo.. Read More»
