The Relationship Between the Periodontal Microflora and Alveolar Bone Loss in Macaca Arctoides
Several investigators have studied intensively for the last five years the subgingival microflora associated with various clinical entities of human periodontal disease (13,16). These studies have all been cross-sectional in nature. Although of considerable interest, the available data cannot provide information as to whether an organism initiates, contributes to the progression of, or is secondary to the pathological changes.
