Welcome to the website of the Endodontics and Molecular Microbiology laboratory of

at the Endodontic PostGraduate Program, Estácio de Sá University


Our research projects involve associate researchers and Master/PhD students engaged in the following areas: 

1) Diversity of the microbial communities in the different types of endodontic infections

2) Influence of disease modifiers in the severity and response to treatment of apical periodontitis

3) Antimicrobial efficacy of endodontic treatment protocols

4) Anti-biofilm strategies and substances

5) Outcome of the endodontic treatment

6) Correlative micro-CT and molecular microbiology/microscopic analyses of endodontic antimicrobial  treatment
