Abstract

Antibiotics are chemical substances that are capable of destroying and inhibiting the growth of specific microorganisms, such as infectious bacteria and fungi. The oral cavity is a complex biological ecosystem with very large number of microorganisms living in a biofilm. The indications for use of antibiotics in dentistry are limited and specific. There are around 50 million bacteria in every gram of surface soil, a few bacteria can be dangerous to our health by causing infections and even death. Antibiotics can have “broad” or “narrow” spectrum – Broad spectrum are active against many different types of bacteria and Narrow spectrum are active against one or a few types of bacteria. Antibiotics have selective toxicity toward the bacterium rather than the host.

Key Words
