Abstract:

This chapter aims at estimating contamination of dental-unit waters and antimicrobial susceptibility of isolated strains. The membrane filtration method and growth on a buffered charcoal-yeast extract medium with GVPC selective supplement (glycine, vancomycin, polymyxin B, and cycloheximide) was used. For the estimation of antibiotic resistance, four groups of antibiotics were used: (i) inhibitors of synthesis of cell walls β-lactam antibiotics), (ii) inhibitors of synthesis of proteins (tetracyclines, macrolides, aminoglycosides), (iii) inhibitors of synthesis of nucleic acids (quinolones, rifampin), and (iv) inhibitors of synthesis of cell membranes (polymyxin). is sensitive to a number of antibiotics; however, in vitro susceptibility studies do not always correlate with clinical efficacy because is an intracellular pathogen. Water for use with drills in oral surgery should be held in sterile containers and pass down freshly sterilized tubes to sterilized handpieces. Access to the water lines to enable regular flushing with powerful disinfectant would also be desirable.
