Study Comparing Two Different Methods of Treating Periodontal Disease

The purposes of this study are to: 1. compare the clinical effectiveness of a traditional and a medical model of periodontal therapy; and 2. determine the value of the two...

Role of IL-37 Genetic Variants in Modulating Innate Immune Response to Periodontal Pathogens

This study will provide mechanistic insight into the underlying causes and molecular level pathogenesis of periodontal diseases. We will identify key mechanisms that confer risk and protec...

Periodontal Impact of Eating Disorders (the PERIOED Study)

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 ...

Antimicrobial Peptides in Periodontitis

Periodontal diseases are complex chronic pathologies presenting a high prevalence worldwide. Etiopathological process involved in initiation and progression of these multifactorial disease...

Periodontal Disease and Circulatory Microbial Components

The goal of this project is to study the immune activity of certain proteins present in the blood of patients with severe periodontal disease. Periodontal disease (gum disease) is the majo...

Subgingival microbiome of rheumatoid arthritis patients in relation to their disease status and periodontal health.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and periodontitis are chronic inflammatory diseases that share common risk factors. However, the bidirectional relationship between RA and periodontal disease is not fully un...

Marine ω-3, vitamin D levels, disease outcome and periodontal status in rheumatoid arthritis outpatients.

Marine ω-3 fatty acids (FAs) and Vitamin D (VitD) are reportedly capable of down-regulating inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and periodontal disease. This study was undertaken to relate mari...

Comparative Evaluation of Periodontal Status of Chronic Renal Failure Patients and Systemically Healthy Individuals.

Periodontitis, a chronic infectious disease, affects most of the population at one time or the other and its expression is a combination of hosts, microbial agents, and environmental factors. Extensiv...

Soft drink consumption and periodontal status in pregnant women.

Periodontal disease is associated with metabolic syndrome, and during pregnancy, it is linked to pre-eclampsia and preterm birth. We hypothesized that soft drink consumption, which has also been assoc...

Systemic medical conditions and periodontal status in older individuals.

The purposes of this study are to: (1) assess the prevalence of systemic and periodontal disease in older individuals, (2) compare periodontal conditions between four age cohorts, and (3) investigate ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)

Pathological processes involving the PERIODONTIUM including the gum (GINGIVA), the alveolar bone (ALVEOLAR PROCESS), the DENTAL CEMENTUM, and the PERIODONTAL LIGAMENT.

Techniques for enhancing and directing cell growth to repopulate specific parts of the PERIODONTIUM that have been damaged by PERIODONTAL DISEASES; TOOTH DISEASES; or TRAUMA, or to correct TOOTH ABNORMALITIES. Repopulation and repair is achieved by guiding the progenitor cells to reproduce in the desired location by blocking contact with surrounding tissue by use of membranes composed of synthetic or natural material that may include growth inducing factors as well.
