The persistence of periodontal pockets > 5 mm after periodontal treatments increases the risk of periodontitis recurrence and the need of periodontal surgery. This study evaluated the impact of tooth-related factors on the effectiveness of adjunctive photodynamic treatment (PDT) in the reduction of pockets > 5 mm during active periodontal treatment.

Name: Photodiagnosis and photodynamic therapy
The aim of this study was to determine the influence of distinct pre-irradiation times (PIT) of curcumin on the effectiveness of the antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (aPDT) against intact dentin car...
Photodynamic therapy has been gaining popularity, particularly among young women. Therefore it is crucial to evaluate PDT for safety and its impact on fertility and delivery of healthy newborns.
Antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (aPDT) shows antimicrobial activity on yeast of the genus Candida. In photodynamic therapy, the depth at which the light penetrates the tissue is extremely important...
The current procedures for treating tooth decay are not always guaranteed to successfully remove all microorganisms which cause disease. For elimination of bacteria and prevention of their effects, di...
The aim of the present study was to comprehensively review indexed literature regarding the potential role of antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (aPDT) in Orthodontics.
The elimination of pathogenic microorganisms from the root canal system is one of the main points in order to have success in endodontic treatment. The objective of this study is to perfor...
To evaluate safety, visual acuity outcomes, persistence of choroidal neovascular leakage, and the number of treatments of combination intravitreal bevacizumab and verteporfin photodynamic ...
Candida albicans is the most prevalent species in denture-related stomatitis (DS). There are several treatment options for this condition, including the use of antifungal agents such as ny...
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and tolerability of Talaporfin Sodium (LS11) Photodynamic Therapy in patients with late stage Age-Related Macular Disease (AMD).
This research study is a phase III double arm, multicenter, randomized controlled clinical trial comparing endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and stenting plus photodyna...
The purified component of HEMATOPORPHYRIN DERIVATIVE, it consists of a mixture of oligomeric porphyrins. It is used in photodynamic therapy (HEMATOPORPHYRIN PHOTORADIATION); to treat malignant lesions with visible light and experimentally as an antiviral agent. It is the first drug to be approved in the use of PHOTODYNAMIC THERAPY in the United States.
A complex mixture of monomeric and aggregated porphyrins used in the photodynamic therapy of tumors (HEMATOPORPHYRIN PHOTORADIATION). A purified component of this mixture is known as DIHEMATOPORPHYRIN ETHER.
Studies designed to assess the efficacy of programs. They may include the evaluation of cost-effectiveness, the extent to which objectives are met, or impact.
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)
The wearing away of a tooth as a result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It is chiefly associated with aging. It is differentiated from TOOTH ABRASION (the pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by friction, as brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes) and from TOOTH EROSION (the loss of substance caused by chemical action without bacterial action). (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p86)
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
