Peri-implantitis are important disease entities as a result of their high prevalence and the lack of a standard mode of therapy. Based on the available data, the non-surgical therapy of p...
The primary objective is to evaluate the clinical and patient-centered outcomes of non-surgical mechanical debridement with adjunctive repeated diode laser application (test) in comparison...
The purpose of the study is to observe the effects of two commonly utilized treatment modalities to treat peri-implantitis and to compare the results. The first method of treatment is debr...
Peri-implantitis is a high prevalence disease that affects Dental Implants, and can lead to the implant loss if untreated. This condition isn't really well known, and treatments can't prov...
The project will evaluate the potential benefit of the use of bone replacement graft as an adjunct to surgical therapy of peri-implantitis. The project will be conducted as a two-armed ran...
To evaluate the effects of single application of antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (aPDT) as an adjunct to open flap debridement (OFD) and OFD alone in patients with peri-implantitis (PI).
To present the different definitions of peri-implantitis proposed in the literature and to propose a new evidence-based etiology-driven classification of peri-implantitis to accurately and fully descr...
The aim of this clinical trial was to establish a proof of concept that the adjunctive use of systemic azithromycin (AZM) in conjunction with mechanical debridement has an increased benefit in reducin...
Oral probiotics appear to improve the treatment of periodontal diseases but there is limited evidence on their efficacy in the treatment of peri-implant diseases. The objective of the present study wa...
To retrospectively evaluate the incidence of peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis around dental implants with the same body design and surface but different collar surface (laser-microgrooved v...
A surgical procedure to correct MYOPIA by CORNEAL STROMA subtraction. It involves the use of a microkeratome to make a lamellar dissection of the CORNEA creating a flap with intact CORNEAL EPITHELIUM. After the flap is lifted, the underlying midstroma is reshaped with an EXCIMER LASER and the flap is returned to its original position.
A surgical technique to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS of the EYE, such as MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. In this method, a flap of CORNEAL EPITHELIUM is created by exposure of the area to dilute alcohol. The flap is lifted and then replaced after laser ablation of the subepithelial CORNEA.
An inflammatory process with loss of supporting bone in the tissues surrounding functioning DENTAL IMPLANTS.
Endonucleases that remove 5' DNA sequences from a DNA structure called a DNA flap. The DNA flap structure occurs in double-stranded DNA containing a single-stranded break where the 5' portion of the downstream strand is too long and overlaps the 3' end of the upstream strand. Flap endonucleases cleave the downstream strand of the overlap flap structure precisely after the first base-paired nucleotide, creating a ligatable nick.
A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).
