SPECIFIC vs. NON-SPECIFFIC PLAQUE HYPOTHESIS

By Dr.Swathi Pai on Saturday 29 April 2000 with 0 comments




Non-specific hypothesis

-all plaques are similar

-goal of treatment is removal of all plaque

-failure is the patient's fault-did not keep the plaque off

Specific plaque hypothesis

-the qualitative difference between plaques, i.e. the specific bacterial composition of the plaque, and the specific intraoral site that the plaque colonizes, determines which disease, if any, plaque will cause
