To compare biofilm formation on whole dental titanium implants with different surface micro-topography
A multispecies in vitro biofilm model consisting on initial (Streptococcus oralis and Actinomyces naeslundii), early (Veillonella parvula), secondary (Fusobacterium nucleatum) and late colonizers (Porphyromonas gingivalis and Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans) was grown for 96 h on sterile titanium dental implants with either minimal (S : 0.5-1.0 mm) or moderate-roughness titanium surfaces (S : 1.1-2.0 mm). The resulting biofilms were studied with Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopy (CLSM) and Scanning Electron Microscope. Concentrations (colony forming units per mL [CFU/mL]) of each bacterium were measured by quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction (qPCR) and compared by Student T-tests.

Antibacterial dental implants and related prosthetic components could help to reduce infection and prevent peri-implantitis. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of ultraviolet (UV) l...
Currently many assume that bacteria are the primary etiological factor associated with failure of titanium dental implants. However, emerging data indicates a possible role for mechanical forces in im...
Streptococcus mutans is a principal bacterium that forms pathogenic biofilm involved in the development of dental caries. S. mutans possesses a quorum sensing system (QS) stimulated by competence stim...
In this study, microgroove patterns and nanotubes with various parameter settings were hierarchically prepared on the titanium (Ti) surface, aiming to study the optimal hierarchical micro/nano pattern...
To compare clinical and radiographic outcomes of dental implants with different neck characteristics.
In this study we intend to find out the pattern of biofilm accumulation in vivo on various surface finishings. Our intention is to prepare Polymethylmetacrylate squers on orthodontical br...
This post-market study is to show that dental implants with a SLActive® surface (SLActive® implants) show non-inferior clinical performance compared to dental implants with a SLA® surfa...
This study compared the removal of dental biofilm between soft and medium toothbrushes. The patients refrained from performing mechanical or chemical plaque control for 96 hours to allow d...
The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons estimated that 69% of adults ages 35 to 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth. Dental implants have revolutionized dentistry...
The control of biofilm around implants is critical to the success of the implant rehabilitation of edentulous jaw with overdentures, and it is the dentist's duty to inform and guide patien...
Localized destruction of the tooth surface initiated by decalcification of the enamel followed by enzymatic lysis of organic structures and leading to cavity formation. If left unchecked, the cavity may penetrate the enamel and dentin and reach the pulp. The three most prominent theories used to explain the etiology of the disease are that acids produced by bacteria lead to decalcification; that micro-organisms destroy the enamel protein; or that keratolytic micro-organisms produce chelates that lead to decalcification.
Preparation of TOOTH surfaces, and of materials bonded to teeth or DENTAL IMPLANTS, with agents and methods which roughen the surface to facilitate adhesion. Agents include phosphoric or other acids (ACID ETCHING, DENTAL) and methods include LASERS.
The seepage of fluids, debris, and micro-organisms between the walls of a prepared dental cavity and the restoration.
High molecular weight mucoproteins that form a protective biofilm on the surface of EPITHELIAL CELLS where they provide a barrier to particulate matter and microorganisms. Membrane-anchored mucins may have additional roles concerned with protein interactions at the cell surface.
Removal of dental plaque and dental calculus from the surface of a tooth, from the surface of a tooth apical to the gingival margin accumulated in periodontal pockets, or from the surface coronal to the gingival margin.
Dentistry is the study, management and treatment of diseases and conditions affecting the mouth, jaw, teeth and their supporting tissues (Oxford Medical Dictionary) The work of a dentist ranges from regular patient check-up to orthodontics and surgery....
Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)
PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) uses the ability of DNA polymerase (enzymes that create DNA molecules by assembling nucleotides, the building blocks of DNA. These enzymes are essential to DNA replication and usually work in pairs to create two ident...
