To assess the prevalence and severity of periodontitis in patients with moderate chronic kidney disease (CKD) and comparing the results with the self-reported periodontitis awareness of the study subjects.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Journal of clinical periodontology
The purpose of this systematic review was to establish if patients suffering from periodontal diseases present differences in the expression or production of cationic antimicrobial peptides in saliva,...
Effect of non-surgical periodontal treatment on gingival crevicular fluid and serum leptin levels in periodontally healthy chronic periodontitis and chronic periodontitis patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of non-surgical periodontal therapy (NSPT) on gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) and serum leptin levels and glycemic status in periodontally healt...
To investigate the association between periodontal status and peri-implant diseases in patients with osseointegrated dental implants of different implant systems.
While clinical indicators, or so-called surrogate outcomes in periodontology, allow us to assess periodontal health and evaluate outcomes of periodontal therapy from a clinician's perspective, they ca...
Hyperglycemia has been reported in some patients after curative insulinoma resection but no systematic investigation of glucose metabolism has been shown in a larger cohort of these patients. Therefor...
This study will evaluate if periodontal mechanical treatment is capable to alter immunological and genetical parameters related to systemic health in patients with chronic periodontitis an...
This study was performed to evaluate the effects of both periodontal treatment and smoking on the gingival crevicular fluid(GCF) levels of interleukin (IL)-17A, IL-17E, Total oxidative str...
The aim of this prospective study is to verify the efficacy of smoking cessation on non-surgical periodontal therapy in adult subjects with chronic periodontitis. Smokers that were willin...
Human IL-21 is present in gingival crevicular fluid in periodontal health, gingivitis and chronic periodontitis. A significant increase in the concentration of IL-21 in gingival crevicular...
This study evaluated the periodontal status of patients suffering from eating disorders (anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa). The work hypothesis is that eating disorder patients have a ...
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.
A quality-of-life scale developed in the United States in 1972 as a measure of health status or dysfunction generated by a disease. It is a behaviorally based questionnaire for patients and addresses activities such as sleep and rest, mobility, recreation, home management, emotional behavior, social interaction, and the like. It measures the patient's perceived health status and is sensitive enough to detect changes or differences in health status occurring over time or between groups. (From Medical Care, vol.xix, no.8, August 1981, p.787-805)
The measurement of the health status for a given population using a variety of indices, including morbidity, mortality, and available health resources.
Behaviors expressed by individuals to protect, maintain or promote their health status. For example, proper diet, and appropriate exercise are activities perceived to influence health status. Life style is closely associated with health behavior and factors influencing life style are socioeconomic, educational, and cultural.
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.
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
