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...
Aim: To evaluate the efficacy of a 0.03% chlorhexidine (CHX) and 0.05% cetyl pyridinium chloride (CPC) mouth rinse, as an adjunct to professionally and patient-administered mechanical plaq...
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...
Peri-implant diseases are prevalent, with numerous therapies studied in an attempt to combat this condition. The present review aims to systematically evaluate the effectiveness of laser therapy with ...
To compare the periodontal and peri-implant conditions of Chinese patients with a history of moderate or severe periodontitis and periodontally healthy patients (PHP); to evaluate the influence of mai...
Periodontal Ehlers Danlos syndrome (pEDS) has recently been delineated as a molecularly defined cause of early severe periodontitis. Here we report that implant treatment failed in three affected indi...
To compare changes in the prevalence of peri-implantitis when the unit of analysis is the subject and when the unit of analysis is the implant, by means of meta-analysis with subgroup and sensitivity ...
Platelet concentration based membranes, as well as collagen membranes in combination with bone substitutes, have demonstrated successful outcomes in regeneration of peri-implant bone defects (PBD).
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.
