Research Interests

  1. In situ identification of bacteria in gingival epithelial cells using antibody and DNA probe technology.
  2. Measurement of IgG subclass levels in the serum and gingival crevicular fluid of patients with periodontal diseases and correlation with disease activity.
  3. Investigation of the microbiota of patients with Down syndrome and immune responses within serum and gingival crevicular fluid using DNA probe technology and “Checkerboard immunoblotting”.
  4. Microbial and Immunohistochemical findings in radicular dentin, cementum and pulp of human teeth with advanced periodontitis.
  5. Microbial and histological evaluation of root surfaces treated with scaling and root planing plus topical Doxycycline Hyclate 10%
  6. Bacterial colonization of the implant/abutment interface
