The current procedures for treating tooth decay are not always guaranteed to successfully remove all microorganisms which cause disease. For elimination of bacteria and prevention of their effects, different methods are recommended, such as antibacterial materials and cavity disinfectants. The aim of this study was to compare the antibacterial activity of the photodynamic therapy (PDT) using diode laser with indocyanin green (ICG) on Streptococcus (S.) mutans biofilm with conventional methods.

Near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence imaging using indocyanine green (ICG) has been used for breast cancer surgery such as sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping and breast cancer localization. ...
A large heterogeneous group of mostly alpha-hemolytic streptococci. They colonize the respiratory tract at birth and generally have a low degree of pathogenicity. This group of species includes STREPTOCOCCUS MITIS; STREPTOCOCCUS MUTANS; STREPTOCOCCUS ORALIS; STREPTOCOCCUS SANGUIS; STREPTOCOCCUS SOBRINUS; and the STREPTOCOCCUS MILLERI GROUP. The latter are often beta-hemolytic and commonly produce invasive pyogenic infections including brain and abdominal abscesses.
A polysaccharide-producing species of STREPTOCOCCUS isolated from human dental plaque.
The purified component of HEMATOPORPHYRIN DERIVATIVE, it consists of a mixture of oligomeric porphyrins. It is used in photodynamic therapy (HEMATOPORPHYRIN PHOTORADIATION); to treat malignant lesions with visible light and experimentally as an antiviral agent. It is the first drug to be approved in the use of PHOTODYNAMIC THERAPY in the United States.
A tricarbocyanine dye that is used diagnostically in liver function tests and to determine blood volume and cardiac output.
A complex mixture of monomeric and aggregated porphyrins used in the photodynamic therapy of tumors (HEMATOPORPHYRIN PHOTORADIATION). A purified component of this mixture is known as DIHEMATOPORPHYRIN ETHER.
