In this three month, interventional clinical trial for the treatment of gingivitis we will assess the use of an oscillating-rotating powered toothbrush in comparison to the use of a manual...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the use of a sonic toothbrush alone is more effective than two other toothbrushing protocols on dental plaque elimination in patients with...
Background: Clinical studies have explored the relationship between toothbrushing and the development of recession, but relevant recession data for the multi-directional power toothbrush (...
This study will determine the effects toothbrush type (power or manual) has on the safety and effectiveness of professional dentinal hypersensitivity treatment with a marketed oxalate-cont...
The effects on indices of gingivitis/periodontitis will differ between study arms in which the titanium dioxide semiconductor toothbrush is used, compared to an otherwise identical toothbr...
To evaluate and compare the efficacy of a marketed oscillating-rotating electric rechargeable toothbrush to a marketed sonic toothbrush in the reduction of gingivitis and plaque over an 8-week period.
To investigate to what extent the degree of toothbrush wear of 3-month-old manual toothbrushes influence plaque scores.
To evaluate the gingival health efficacy of an oscillating-rotating electric toothbrush, a stannous fluoride dentifrice, and dental floss in adults with mild-to-moderate gingivitis.
To evaluate the effect of pulsed ultrasound toothbrush on the removal of biofilm formed by Streptococcus mutans (S. mutans).
An acute or chronic GINGIVITIS characterized by redness and swelling, NECROSIS extending from the interdental papillae along the gingival margins, PAIN; HEMORRHAGE, necrotic odor, and often a pseudomembrane. The condition may extend to the ORAL MUCOSA; TONGUE; PALATE; or PHARYNX. The etiology is somewhat unclear, but may involve a complex of FUSOBACTERIUM NUCLEATUM along with spirochetes BORRELIA or TREPONEMA.
A loss of mucous substance of the mouth showing local excavation of the surface, resulting from the sloughing of inflammatory necrotic tissue. It is the result of a variety of causes, e.g., denture irritation, aphthous stomatitis (STOMATITIS, APHTHOUS); NOMA; necrotizing gingivitis (GINGIVITIS, NECROTIZING ULCERATIVE); TOOTHBRUSHING; and various irritants. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p842)
Treatment using irradiation with light of low power intensity so that the effects are a response to the light and not due to heat. A variety of light sources, especially low-power lasers are used.
Large vessels propelled by power or sail used for transportation on rivers, seas, oceans, or other navigable waters. Boats are smaller vessels propelled by oars, paddles, sail, or power; they may or may not have a deck.
Inflammation of gum tissue (GINGIVA) without loss of connective tissue.
