ABSTRACT: The objective of this study was to evaluate the microbial susceptibility to ß-lactams and metronidazole,
and evaluate the production of ß-lactamases by microorganisms isolated from patients with chronic or aggressive periodontitis.
The samples were obtained from 50 patients with periodontitis and microorganisms were isolated onto selective andnonselective culture media, identified by biochemical methods and tested for susceptibility to antimicrobial agents (amoxicillin,amoxicillin/clavulanate, cefoxitin, imipenem, metronidazole, penicillin G). The isolates were resistant to at least 1 mg/ml ofany drug tested were evaluated to verify the production of ß-lactamases by the method of double layer (or biological) andchromogenic cephalosporin using nitrocefin. The results evidenced resistance to amoxicillin and penicillin G, while thesusceptibility to association amoxicillin/clavulanate, imipenem and cefoxitin was widely disseminated among the organisms.
Resistance to these drugs showed a clear correlation with the production of ß-lactamase in the majority of microbial groups.
KEYWORDS: periodontitis, antimicrobials, b-lactams, bacteria, metronidazole.
Periodontal diseases represent serious health positive and Gram-negative bacteria (López et al., problems and affect all ethnic groups, regardless gender and socio-economic conditions of the population. They result from the loss of equilibrium Antimicrobials and antibiotics used during between the immune response and virulence factors treatment of patients unable to maintain oral hygiene, of the resident microbiota. The control of the oral biofilm mentally or physically handicapped, suffering from is a prerequisite to the health maintenance in the dental and/or surgical trauma, and with refractory, periodontium (Eick et al., 2011). In general, aggressive or advanced periodontitis have been antimicrobial drugs are not indicated as monotherapy prescribed, but most of these compounds have several for patients with periodontitis, but some aggressive side effects. Moreover, the widespread use of forms of periodontitis may benefit with adjunctive use antimicrobial agents against oral anaerobes has been of systemic antimicrobials (Ahuja et al., 2012).

In addition, most of as pathogens in periodontitis, such as Porphyromonas microorganisms recovered from periodontal sites are gingivalis, Prevotella intermedia, P. nigrescens, strict anaerobes and culture and susceptibility tests of Tannerella forsythia, spirochetes, Aggregatibacter anaerobes are not frequently performed in Brazil, what constitutes a serious problem since clinicians have to nucleatum, frequently associated with other Gram- choose antimicrobials just using international literature.
