OBJECTIVES: I. Quantify periodontal alveolar bone loss rates in postmenopausal women. II. Evaluate the effects of estrogen on alveolar bone loss rates in these patients. III. Determin...
vitamin D has great role in bone regenration and soft tissue health. in the past periodontal regeneration was performed using bone graft and barrier membrane
To compare clinically and radiographically the efficacy of demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft with and without decortication in the treatment of periodontal intrabony defects assess...
The purpose of the study is to determine the effect of enamel matrix protein derivative on an inflamed, periodontal-involved tooth. The hypothesis to be studied is that enamel matrix deriv...
Patients who had had systematic periodontal treatment (antiinfective treatment with subgingival debridement under local anaesthesia and if required periodontal surgery) at the Dept. of Per...
Gingival recession and alveolar bone loss are common manifestations of periodontitis. Periodontal regeneration is the ideal strategy for rehabilitating periodontal tissue defects and preventing tooth ...
Although pregnant women are prone to gingival inflammation, its mechanism remains unclear. Animal models are ideal for investigating immunological mechanisms in the periodontal disease. A murine model...
Smoking and occlusal trauma are two factors that can interfere with bone homeostasis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the histocellular changes occurring in the periodontal ligament and alveolar...
Periodontal disease is a polymicrobial infection characterized by inflammation of the gingiva, alveolar bone resorption and tooth loss. As periodontal disease progresses, oral treponemes (spirochetes)...
Periodontal disease (PD) is a common dental disease associated with the interaction between dysbiotic oral microbiota and host immunity. It is a prevalent disease, resulting in loss of gingival tissue...
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.
Pathological processes involving the PERIODONTIUM including the gum (GINGIVA), the alveolar bone (ALVEOLAR PROCESS), the DENTAL CEMENTUM, and the PERIODONTAL LIGAMENT.
Degradation or wasting of the PERIODONTIUM tissues that may involve the gum (GINGIVA), the alveolar bone (ALVEOLAR PROCESS), the DENTAL CEMENTUM, or the PERIODONTAL LIGAMENT.
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)
Exposure of the root surface when the edge of the gum (GINGIVA) moves apically away from the crown of the tooth. This is common with advancing age, vigorous tooth brushing, diseases, or tissue loss of the gingiva, the PERIODONTAL LIGAMENT and the supporting bone (ALVEOLAR PROCESS).
