An actinomycetemcomitans can cause localized juvenile periodontitis and certain types of adult periodontitis. Optimal treatment of periodontal disease caused by this microorganism requires systemic antibiotic therapy in addition to mechanical debridement of the infected gingival tissues. Laboratory techniques are available to assist the practitioner in identifying this microorganism in dental plaque samples.
