Project: The influence of radiotherapy in the head and neck region on the composition of the flora of necrotic pulps
- project duration
- 01-JAN-04 – 31-DEC-06
- Study of the composition of the root canal flora of necrotic teeth in patients irradiated in the head- and neck region with a minimal dose of 65 Gy and the salivary glands in the radiation field.
