Figure 2 : Is a SEM analysis of the bacteria found in the mesial buccal periodontal pocket of tooth #3.

The direct medication method delivered hydrogen peroxide gel (Perio Gel) for one month. The composite of bacteria has changed dramatically. The rod and cocci bacteria have been replaced with bacteria structurally resembling Actinomyces type bacteria. Comparing Figure 2 to Figure 1 shows a dramatic change in the number of bacteria in response to direct medication treatment. Treatment usage was modified as pocket depths decreased.
