Mechanisms of bacterial-mediated resistance in oral biofilms Some bacteria are intrinsically resistant to various antibiotics. For example, aerobic bacteria are generally resistant to metronidazole. Other bacteria may lack the target site of the antibiotic, or lack the transport mechanisms needed to import the drug from the extracellular environment. However, treatment of intrinsically resistant bacteria can usually be achieved with an alternative drug. Acquired antibiotic resistance, however, is more problematic.
