Considering the frequent occurence of peri-implantitis and mucositis, a multiple of treatment alternatives have been proposed including non-surgical and surgical procedures. However, it se...
The purpose of this study is to analyze the efficacy of 0.12% chlorhexidine gluconate as a chemical adjuvant for the treatment of peri-implant mucositis, in a non-surgical treatment protoc...
The purpose of this study is to analyze the efficacy of 0.12% chlorhexidine gluconate as a chemical adjuvant for the treatment of peri-implant mucositis in single implants compared with ho...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of a triclosan-containing toothpaste in the profile of osteo-immunoinflammatory mediators in the peri-implant crevicular fluid (PICF) an...
Soft tissue attachment to the implant surface serves as a biological seal preventing the development of inflammatory periimplant diseases (i.e. peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis)...
Oral probiotics appear to improve the treatment of periodontal diseases but there is limited evidence on their efficacy in the treatment of peri-implant diseases. The objective of the present study wa...
to determine the prevalence and development of peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis and to assess risk factors over time.
Regular supportive care should be emphasised for all patients but individuals who present with multiple implants and/or peri-implant mucositis should receive special clinical attention.
To assess the onset, progression and resolution of experimentally induced peri-implant mucositis lesions at abutments with different microstructures in humans.
The aim of this study was to analyze the differences in inflammatory and catabolic mediators expressed in peri-implantitis compared to periodontitis lesions after non-surgical therapy. Peri-implantiti...
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)
Surgical dressings, after periodontal surgery, applied to the necks of teeth and the adjacent tissue to cover and protect the surgical wound. (Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed, p218)
Techniques used to expose dental surface below the gingival margin in order to obtain better dental impression during periodental and peri-implant applications. The retraction of the gingival tissue can be achieved surgically (e.g., laser gingivectomy and rotary curettage) or chemically with a retraction cord.
Surgical insertion of an implant to replace one or more of the ear ossicles.
