Altered passive eruption (APE) is an anatomical condition that is frequently diagnosed in periodontal clinical practice, especially for the ever-increasing demand of patients for the aesth...
Background: The purpose of the present study is to research whether stress scale scores alter with relationship to gingival inflammation and examine the impact of non-surgical periodontal ...
Diabetes increases the incidence and severity of periodontal inflammation and disease, and periodontal disease causes an increase in the severity of diabetes by worsening glycemic control ...
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...
The objective in this case-control intervention study, therefore, was to explore the effect of nonsurgical periodontal therapy on the GCF levels of chemerin and IL-6 in patients with chron...
The field of periodontics has become increasingly discussed and advanced in recent decades. The techniques of periodontal soft tissue grafts are among these advancements. The techniques have been used...
Von Willebrand disease (VWD) is the most common inherent bleeding disorder. Gingival bleeding is a frequently reported symptom of VWD. However, gingival bleeding is also a leading symptom of plaque-in...
To integrate the available data published on gingival cyst of the adult (GCA), lateral periodontal cyst (LPC) and botryoid odontogenic cyst (BOC) into a comprehensive analysis of their clinical/radiol...
The presence of interdental papilla between the maxillary central incisors has a considerable influence on harmonizing esthetics and biologic functions. Preliminary investigations indicate an associat...
The holy grail of biomarker research in periodontology is to develop a high impact diagnostics which have a significant impact on clinical decision-making, patient outcomes and healthcare providers. I...
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.
Abnormal enlargement or overgrowth of the gingivae brought about by enlargement of existing cells.
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.
Generalized or localized diffuse fibrous overgrowth of the gingival tissue, usually transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait, but some cases are idiopathic and others produced by drugs. The enlarged gingiva is pink, firm, and has a leather-like consistency with a minutely pebbled surface and in severe cases the teeth are almost completely covered and the enlargement projects into the oral vestibule. (Dorland, 28th ed)
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.
