Inflammatory cytokines impact the course of periodontal disease, repair, and regeneration. Vitamin A and its metabolites are inflammation-modulatory biomolecules, affecting cellular pluripotency. The ...
We used novel analytical approaches to identify inflammatory response patterns to plaque accumulation in experimental gingivitis studies in humans. Data from two experimental gingivitis studies [Datas...
Drug-induced gingival overgrowth (DIGO) is a well-recognized side-effect of nifedipine (NIF). However, the molecular mechanisms of DIGO are still unknown. Here, we explored the possible role of miR-...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the carious status and the microbial profiles of supragingival plaque in patients with chronic kidney disease undergoing hemodialysis.
The present study was to investigate the action of a toothpaste made from the extract of Rosmarinus officinalis Linn. (rosemary) in a clinical randomized, controlled, open and double-blind trial. One ...
This study evaluates if electric toothbrushes with a 3D action (rotation / oscillation and pulsation) are more effective than manual toothbrushes in removing plaque and reducing gingival i...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the gingival margin stability with the use of oscillating-rotating toothbrushes compared to manual toothbrushes.
Gingival fissures (GF) have been suggested as risk indicators for clinical attachment loss (CAL) and gingival recession, especially in free surfaces and in patients with low plaque scores....
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the impact of oral hygiene changes (drastic plaque and gingival inflammation reduction) on markers of systemic inflammation and indicators of oral h...
The objective of the study is to evaluate and compare the efficacy of an experimental power brush to a regular manual brush in the reduction of gingivitis and dental plaque over an 8 week ...
An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.

Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.
Excessive growth of the gingiva either by an increase in the size of the constituent cells (GINGIVAL HYPERTROPHY) or by an increase in their number (GINGIVAL HYPERPLASIA). (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p574)
Techniques used to expose dental surface below the gingival margin in order to obtain better dental impression during periodental and peri-implant applications. The retraction of the gingival tissue can be achieved surgically (e.g., laser gingivectomy and rotary curettage) or chemically with a retraction cord.
