The aim of this clinical study is to asses the effect of ultrasonic periodontal debridement associated to locally delivered doxycycline (20%) by PLGA microspheres on chronic generalized pe...
Therefore, the aim of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of daily supplementation of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and low-dose aspirin as adjunct therapy to one-stage fu...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the periodontal parameters in terms of periodontal healing by periodontal surgical therapy with simultaneous or delayed endodontic therapy in managemen...
Determine the relationship between the systemic indications of atherosclerosis by means of the change in the ratio of periodontopathogenic microorganisms following periodontal treatment of...
Primary Objective: To identify changes in systemic markers of inflammation following periodontal treatment, comparing two standard treatment modalities (hands scaling and ultrasonic scali...
Management of diabetes-related foot ulcers often involves debridement of devitalized tissue, but evidence regarding the most effective debridement method is limited.
There is growing concern that titanium particles may play a role in peri-implant breakdown. Ultrasonic scalers are routinely used in the debridement of peri-implant lesions. This in vitro study is des...
This paper analyzes how ultrasounds could have unintentionally led to the AP news recordings of metallic sounds heard by diplomats in Cuba. Beginning with screen shots of the acoustic spectral plots f...
Periodontal Disease is an infectious and inflammatory disorder triggered mainly by periodontopathogenic bacteria, however, as a multifactorial disease, several factors modulate its progression, namely...
This study was conducted to compare fracture patterns and operation times after sagittal split osteotomy (SSO) by Hunsuck/Epker approach, performed using a burr or ultrasonic device, with and without ...
Removal or disruption of DENTAL DEPOSITS and plaque-retentive DENTAL CALCULUS from tooth surfaces and within the periodontal pocket space without deliberate removal of CEMENTUM as done in ROOT PLANING and often in DENTAL SCALING. The goal is to conserve dental cementum to help maintain or re-establish healthy periodontal environment and eliminate PERIODONTITIS by using light instrumentation strokes and nonsurgical techniques (e.g., ultrasonic, laser instruments).
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)
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.
Instrumentation consisting of hardware and software that communicates with the BRAIN. The hardware component of the interface records brain signals, while the software component analyzes the signals and converts them into a command that controls a device or sends a feedback signal to the brain.
A numerical rating scale for classifying the periodontal status of a person or population with a single figure which takes into consideration prevalence as well as severity of the condition. It is based upon probe measurement of periodontal pockets and on gingival tissue status.
