The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effect of the photodynamic therapy in periodontal patients
Halitosis, also known as bad breath, is a term used to define an unpleasant and foul odor that emanates from the mouth and may have local or systemic origin. This project aims to observe t...
The aim of this study was to investigate the mechanism of indocyanine green photodynamic therapy (PDT) in periodontal therapy. The investigators will recruit 80 participants receiving conv...
To assess the local effect of the antimicrobial therapy using clarithromycin association with photodynamic therapy (PDT) in the treatment of generalized aggressive periodontitis (GAgP).
The aim of this study is to evaluate adjuvant effect of antimicrobial photodynamic therapy in periodontal treatment and salivary status of type 1 diabetes patients.
This study's aim was to evaluate the local effect of clarithromycin associated with antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (aPDT) in the treatment of generalized aggressive periodontitis.
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a two-step treatment involving the administration of a photosensitive agent followed by its activation at a specific light wavelength for targeting of tumor cells.
PDT can interfere with cytokine-mediated responses that play an important role in the processes of cancer progression, tumor angiogenesis and metastasis. Therefore, based on the identification of thes...
The antimicrobial photodynamic therapy uses a non-toxic photosensitizer with assistance of harmless visible light which activate the photosensitizer. Consequently, the excited state of photosensitizer...
Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) often occurs in the face of middle and old aged people. Given its particular location, aminolevulinic acid-photodynamic therapy (ALA-PDT) is often applied in cosmetology and...
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.
The purified component of HEMATOPORPHYRIN DERIVATIVE, it consists of a mixture of oligomeric porphyrins. It is used in photodynamic therapy (HEMATOPORPHYRIN PHOTORADIATION); to treat malignant lesions with visible light and experimentally as an antiviral agent. It is the first drug to be approved in the use of PHOTODYNAMIC THERAPY in the United States.
Drug therapy given to augment or stimulate some other form of treatment such as surgery or radiation therapy. Adjuvant chemotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
A treatment method in which patients are under direct observation when they take their medication or receive their treatment. This method is designed to reduce the risk of treatment interruption and to ensure patient compliance.
