Paper Abstract

We have studied photodynamic action of He-Ne laser radiation on cultures of Staphylococcus (strain 209 P), Streptococcus anhaemolyticus, and total microflora of dental deposit been sensitized by methylene blue. The concentration of the dye was varied from 0.001% to 0.1%, radiation power density was 100 mW/cm2. Irradiated strain was put into thermostat for 24 hours, then the number of colonies was counted and analyzed.
