Gingival recession and alveolar bone loss are common manifestations of periodontitis. Periodontal regeneration is the ideal strategy for rehabilitating periodontal tissue defects and preventing tooth ...
Periodontology has evolved from a predominantly mechanical to a sophisticated infectious disease-based discipline. Research has paved the way for a greater understanding of the periodontal microbiome,...
The aim of this retrospective study was to determine factors influencing tooth loss during a long-term follow-up, emphasizing the impact of various compliance definitions.
Multiple cross-sectional epidemiologic studies have suggested an association between periodontal disease and tooth loss and hypertension, but the temporality of these associations remains unclear. The...
To evaluate the longitudinal changes in periodontal ligament (PDL) stiffness during orthodontic tooth movement using the Advanced System for Implant Stability Testing (ASIST).
Patients who had had systematic periodontal treatment (antiinfective treatment with subgingival debridement under local anaesthesia and if required periodontal surgery) at the Dept. of Per...
Periodontitis is a highly prevalent chronic inflammatory disease that is characterized by loss of the periodontal ligament and alveolar bone, and is a major cause of tooth loss. Results fr...
More than ninety percent of adults in Taiwan are suspected to carry periodontal disease, which causes bad breath, swollen and bleeding gums, plaque and even tooth loss. Half of the patient...
The purpose of this study is to determine if regular rinsing with chlorhexidine is effective as a long-term preventive method for reducing the incidence of tooth loss in low income older ...
The goal of this project is to study the immune activity of certain proteins present in the blood of patients with severe periodontal disease. Periodontal disease (gum disease) is the majo...
Loss or destruction of periodontal tissue caused by periodontitis or other destructive periodontal diseases or by injury during instrumentation. Attachment refers to the periodontal ligament which attaches to the alveolar bone. It has been hypothesized that treatment of the underlying periodontal disease and the seeding of periodontal ligament cells enable the creating of new attachment.
Exposure of the root surface when the edge of the gum (GINGIVA) moves apically away from the crown of the tooth. This is common with advancing age, vigorous tooth brushing, diseases, or tissue loss of the gingiva, the PERIODONTAL LIGAMENT and the supporting bone (ALVEOLAR PROCESS).
Any restorative and replacement device that is used as a therapeutic aid in the treatment of periodontal disease. It is an adjunct to other forms of periodontal therapy and does not cure periodontal disease by itself. (Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 3d ed)
A tooth that is prevented from erupting by a physical barrier, usually other teeth. Impaction may also result from orientation of the tooth in an other than vertical position in the periodontal structures.
The pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes. It is differentiated from TOOTH ATTRITION in that this type of wearing away is the result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It differs also from TOOTH EROSION, the progressive loss of the hard substance of a tooth by chemical processes not involving bacterial action. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p2)
