Periodontitis is a common type of periodontal disease caused by expansion of the early stages of gingival
inflammation. Expansion of inflammation to the tissue structures supporting the teeth can be modified by the
pathogenic ability of plaque or host resistance factors. A total of 200 different bacteria have been identified on the
plaque. Resistance to antimicrobials can be natural because the microbes develop mechanisms to defend
themselves. Ciprofloxacin is a synthetic drug of the second generation quinolones derivatives. Mechanism of its
action is to inhibit the activity of bacterial DNA gyrase, which is bactericidal with a broad spectrum against Grampositive

or negative. This observational study identified P. aeruginosa and sensitivity test was performed to
ciprofloxacin in periodontal abscesses. Study conducted in 23 patients with periodontal abscess. Of those,
Pseudomonas was acquired for 8 samples and 4 of them was resistant to ciprofloxacin.
