Bottom Line: Two gel samples were compared: the tested gel containing an active ingredient, that is, a 3% EEP-B (gel GA), and a placebo as the negative control (gel GC).The number of microorganism species was found to have increased following the application of GC gel over the period of 5-6 weeks.Application of the GA gel enriched with 3% EEP-B caused a profound reduction in the amount of Neisseria spp. and Bifidobacterium spp. strains.

ABSTRACT
The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of a topically administered hygienic preparation containing a 3% ethanolic extract of Brazilian green propolis (EEP-B) on oral microflora spectrum changes in a group of patients who underwent common oral surgery procedures. Two gel samples were compared: the tested gel containing an active ingredient, that is, a 3% EEP-B (gel GA), and a placebo as the negative control (gel GC). The collection of microbiological material included 14 patients requiring surgical extraction of wisdom molars and short endosseous implant installation. Clinical examinations were carried out as follow-up, that is, baseline and after 5-6 weeks' time. During the first and subsequent assessment, swabs were taken from the mucosal surface. The number of microorganism species was found to have increased following the application of GC gel over the period of 5-6 weeks. This mainly affected Gram-positive rods and bacilli as well as Gram-negative rods. Application of the GA gel enriched with 3% EEP-B caused a profound reduction in the amount of Neisseria spp. and Bifidobacterium spp. strains. Elimination of seven species of microorganisms was observed: Streptococcus acidominimus, Streptococcus oralis, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Veillonella parvula, Bifidobacterium breve, Bifidobacterium longum, and Lactobacillus acidophilus.

Mentions: By analyzing the results of quantitative studies in patients applying the gel with the addition of propolis for six weeks, one can note that the number of Gram-positive and Gram-negative micrococci diminished substantially. In the second test, Gram-negative rods of Enterobacteriaceae appeared. The amount of Candida albicans fungi remained stable (Table 3, Figure 2). After analyzing the qualitative studies of mouth cavity swabs in patients applying the GC and GA gels, it was found that, in the case of applying the gel without the addition of propolis, the analyzed groups of microorganisms contained mainly the following strains: Bifidobacterium adolescentis, Bifidobacterium dentium as well as single strains of Enterobacter amnigenus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Prevotella disiens, Capnocytophaga ochracea, Ruminococcus productus, and Sarcina sp., which had not been present when treatment commenced. In these studies carried, six species were eliminated, of such strains, including Streptococcus oralis, Streptococcus vestibularis, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Actinomyces viscosus, Burkholderia cepacia, and Klebsiella oxytoca.
