Lipopolysaccharide is a potent virulence factor of Porphyromonas gingivalis and has been implicated predominant pathogen in the development and progression of periodontal diseases. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of Porphyromonas gingivalis lipopolysaccharide (Pg-LPS) on cementoblasts.
