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...
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...
Vitamin D has become important for periodontal disease due to play a role in autoimmunity, bone mineral metabolism and inflammation. Our aim was to investigate the relation between serum 2...
Periodontal disease in dogs is highly prevalent but can only be accurately diagnosed by performing an anesthetized oral examination with periodontal probing and dental radiography. In this study, 114 ...
Local administration of toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9), agonist cytidine-phosphate-guanosine oligodeoxynucleotide (CpG ODNs), and CD40 ligand (CD40L) can decrease ligature-induced periodontal inflammatio...
Vitamin D is critical for bone homeostasis and immunomodulation. We therefore assessed whether 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25(OH) D) deficiency in mice with targeted deletion of the gene encoding 25-hy...
Lateral periodontal cysts (LPCs) are rare odontogenic cysts of developmental origin. A 52-year-old man presented with an asymptomatic gingival swelling located between the mandibular left canine and f...
Tristetraprolin (TTP) is an RNA-binding protein that targets numerous immunomodulatory mRNA transcripts for degradation. Many TTP targets are key players in the pathogenesis of periodontal bone loss, ...
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.
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.
Pathological processes involving the PERIODONTIUM including the gum (GINGIVA), the alveolar bone (ALVEOLAR PROCESS), the DENTAL CEMENTUM, and 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).
