Murine Model of Periodontitis

The objective of this project is to compare methods of measuring alveolar bone loss in wild type and immunodeficient mice infected with Porphyromonas gingivalis. The first molar root trunk in different strains of mice infected and sham infected with P. gingivalis will be measured with linear measurements, area measurements, and micro-computer tomography (microCT) with a series of computer software.
