Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Clinical microbiology now occupies an important place in periodontics and oral implant dentistry as a supplementary diagnostic tool and in planning treatment, particularly with respect to the rational use of antibiotics. This view is in line with the emphatic call by the World Health Organization and the European Union for the prudent use of antibiotics due to the global increase in resistance to antibiotics. Furthermore side effects may occur, such as the disturbance of the microbial intestinal and oral microflora, sometimes leading to serious pathological conditions. Hyposalivation following the use of antibiotics may lead to an oral environmental condition in which caries may develop faster than usual.
