Patients undergoing orthodontic treatment with fixed appliances usually develop gingival enlargement (GE). Its development is usually attribute to chronic inflammation, and may cause both ...
The main aim of this prospective, randomized controlled clinical study is to: • To evaluate and compare the effect of a combined orthodontic -periodontal treatment protocol versus perio...
Orthodontic treatment has been traditionally carried out with fixed appliances involving the use of stainless steel brackets and archwires. The challenge has been to move teeth and their r...
The trial is aimed to investigate an orthodontic treatment with a new removable-part-time-wearing appliance, based on "High-Tech" technology. The appliance should be wear only 12-14 hours...
The purpose of this randomized controlled clinical trial was to compare the transverse development of the arches and the incisor inclination comparing two different ligating systems (SL vs...
To report on periodontal health knowledge and awareness among orthodontic patients and to investigate the effect of age, attitude and duration of orthodontic treatment on periodontal health awareness ...
To evaluate the longitudinal changes in periodontal ligament (PDL) stiffness during orthodontic tooth movement using the Advanced System for Implant Stability Testing (ASIST).
With the increasing number of the orthodontic patients, the relationship between periodontal and orthodontic becomes increasingly close. Orthodontic treatment can improve periodontal status, but the a...
The aim of this study was to investigate in vitro the effect of clodronate on interleukin-1ß (IL-1ß)-stimulated human periodontal ligament fibroblasts (HPdLFs) with the focus on inflammatory factors...
Patient perception with fixed appliance orthodontic treatment is important to improve oral health-related quality of life.
Orthodontic movement in the coronal direction achieved by outward tension on the PERIODONTAL LIGAMENT. It does not include the operative procedure that CROWN LENGTHENING involves.
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.
Bone lengthening by gradual mechanical distraction. An external fixation device produces the distraction across the bone plate. The technique was originally applied to long bones but in recent years the method has been adapted for use with mandibular implants in maxillofacial surgery.
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.
