Before and after pictures: Tooth infection teeth.
These pictures show how to perform a periodontal oral microbiology culture to test for the presence of bacteria in the gums. The results obtained can be used to treat periodontal gum and tooth infections. First use a cotton pellet and a college pliers to wipe away supragingival plaque. Place a medium cotton point (from endo) into about six different sites with the deepest periodontal probings. Leave the cotton point in place for five to ten seconds and then quickly place it in the culture medium. This is the ideal way to discover the type of infection involved and will help provide a method of treatment for the teeth and gums.
