DFDBA is an allograft that possesses osteoconductive and osteoinductive properties. It has the potential for osteoinduction due to increased expression of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)....
Amniotic membrane may be considered as a biologically active scaffold, which in combination with Bone Replacement Grafts (BRG) can be widely used to reconstruct periodontal Intrabony Defec...
Periodontitis is a major oral health problem which leads to the progressive destruction of periodontal ligament and alveolar bone with pocket formation, recession or both. The ultimate goa...
To overcome the disadvantage of complex morphology and availability of less favorable support to retention of graft and clot stabilization in 1-, 1-2-wall periodontal defects, it was hypot...
In this study the buccal fat pad derived stem cells (BFPSCs) will be harvested from buccal fat pad tissue of patients receiving maxillary sinus augmentation. In the test group the patients...
Bio-Oss and demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft (DFDBA) are two commercial bone grafts that have been associated with clinical success for many years. However, there are few in vivo studies rega...
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...
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...
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).
