Abstract: Root perforation results in the communication between root canal walls and periodontal space (external tooth surface).

Different factors may predispose to this communication, such as the presence of pulp stones, calcification, resorptions, tooth malposition (unusual inclination in the arch, tipping or rotation), an extra-coronal restoration or intracanal posts. The diagnosis of dental pulp and/or periapical tissue previous to root perforatio...

Conclusions: DGGE can be used to study distinctive bacterial profiles in healthy and caries-affected sites. DGGE can be further developed as a pattern recognition tool with which to identify specific groups of bacteria. Saliva may be used to study bacterial diversity in dental caries.

Oral diseases, including dental caries and periodontitis, are among the most important global health burdens, affecting the majority of school-aged children and adults worldwide. The prevalence of periodontitis is reported to be between 20 and 50% of the worldwide population [1], with reported relationships between periodontitis and systemic diseases such as cardiovascular disease [2,3]. In Europe, the more severe forms of periodontitis affect 10% of the population [4].
