Periodontitis and peri-implantitis are oral infectious-inflammatory diseases that share similarities in their pathology and etiology. Our objective was to characterize the single-site subgingival and submucosal microbiomes of implant-rehabilitated, partially dentate Chinese subjects (n=18) presenting with both periodontitis and peri-implantitis.

Name: Clinical oral implants research
Chronic periodontitis progression may go through phases of remission and exacerbation. The possibility of periodontal pathogens translocating from infected periodontal sites to peri-implant sites has ...
This perspective article on peri-implantitis and its prevention was produced as a supplement to a 3-D, computer-animated film aiming at presenting key characteristics of peri-implant health, the build...
To investigate the association between periodontal status and peri-implant diseases in patients with osseointegrated dental implants of different implant systems.
The purpose of this review was to explore the available literature and compile studies that discuss the relevance of the biofilm, onset and progression of disease, critical peri-implant pocket depth, ...
The peri-implant bone and mucosa architecture contribute to the health and esthetics of single-tooth dental implants. The implant-tooth distance (ITD) has been regarded as a key determinant of their o...
Objective: This study investigated how patients' knowledge, attitude, and perceptions influence their oral hygiene practices as well as peri-implant health. Materials and Methods: Particip...
In the field of periodontics, periodontal support therapy has proven to be essential in preventing the incidence or recurrence of periodontal diseases. The protocol is designed according t...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of a dentifrice containing 0.3% triclosan on periodontal and peri-implant parameters in patients, with or without periodontitis, treated f...
The aim of the present study was to propose the employment of Bio-Oss® and Bio-Gide® at implant site in order to evaluate if the increased bucco-lingual bone thickness could enhance the ...
Lack of keratinised mucosa around dental implants and teeth is associated with plaque accumulation and worse tissue conditions. However, there is lack of data on the influence of the prese...
A numerical rating scale for classifying the periodontal status of a person or population with a single figure which takes into consideration prevalence as well as severity of the condition. It is based upon probe measurement of periodontal pockets and on gingival tissue status.
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.
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)
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.
Insertion of an implant into the bone of the mandible or maxilla. The implant has an exposed head which protrudes through the mucosa and is a prosthodontic abutment.
