Periodontal Infection and Systemic Inflammation in Renal Patients

2014-08-27 03:14:57 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to examine the role of gum disease in affecting the long term prognosis of renal patients. This disease if untreated causes inflammatory response throughout the body. If the subject has gum disease, he/she will be randomly assigned to one of the two treatment groups. The study investigates what happens to inflammatory markers in blood and saliva after you are treated for gum disease.

Study of Scaling and Root Planing With PerioWave Versus Scaling and Root Planing Alone in Chronic Periodontitis

Diode Laser Therapy As An Adjunct To Scaling And Root Planing

Laser therapy has been proposed as a novel treatment option in controlling subgingival microorganisms. This randomized controlled clinical trial evaluates the effect of 980nm diode laser a...

Periocline as an Adjunct to Scaling and Root Planing for Adult Periodontitis

Periodontal disease (commonly called gum disease) is generally treated by deep cleaning of the root surfaces of the teeth. This is also called scaling and root planing. Placing a topical a...

Effects of Scaling and Root Planing With and Without Er:YAG Laser in Chronic Periodontitis Patients

Dental bacterial plaque is the most frequent modifiable finding in patients with periodontal (gum) diseases. Many studies have provided evidence that mechanical removal of dental plaque is...

Increased systemic levels of inflammatory mediators following one-stage full-mouth scaling and root planing.

Full-mouth scaling and root planing (FM-SRP) acts as a potent inflammatory stimulus immediately after treatment; however, systemic inflammation typically improves in the long term. The contribution of...

Is adjunctive photodynamic therapy more effective than scaling and root planing alone in the treatment of periodontal disease in hyperglycemic patients? A systematic review.

To assess the impact of scaling and root planing (SRP) with and without adjunct photodynamic therapy (PDT) in the treatment of periodontal disease (PD) in hyperglycemic patients.

Treatment of experimental periodontal disease by laser therapy in simvastatin-modified rats.

The aim of this study was to evaluate low-level laser therapy (LLLT) as an adjuvant treatment for scaling and root planing (SRP) for the treatment of induced periodontitis in simvastatin-modified rats...

Clarithromycin as adjunct to scaling and root planing reduces counts of periodontal pathogens, but there is no evidence of benefits on clinical outcomes after 6 months.

Clinical and microbiologic follow-up evaluations after non-surgical periodontal treatment with Nd: YAG laser and scaling and root planning.

Our research aimed to detect the efficacy of non-surgical periodontal treatment with Nd: YAG laser and scaling and root planning (SRP) for chronic periodontitis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A procedure for smoothing of the roughened root surface or cementum of a tooth after subgingival curettage or scaling, as part of periodontal therapy.

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).

Inflammation and loss of connective tissues supporting or surrounding the teeth. This may involve any part of the PERIODONTIUM. Periodontitis is currently classified by disease progression (CHRONIC PERIODONTITIS; AGGRESSIVE PERIODONTITIS) instead of age of onset. (From 1999 International Workshop for a Classification of Periodontal Diseases and Conditions, American Academy of Periodontology)

Removal of degenerated and necrotic epithelium and underlying connective tissue of a periodontal pocket in an effort to convert a chronic ulcerated wound to an acute surgical wound, thereby insuring wound healing and attachment or epithelial adhesion, and shrinkage of the marginal gingiva. The term is sometimes used in connection with smoothing of a root surface or ROOT PLANING. (Jablonski; Illustrated Dictionary of Dentistry, 1982)

Chronic inflammation and loss of PERIODONTIUM that is associated with the amount of DENTAL PLAQUE or DENTAL CALCULUS present. Chronic periodontitis occurs mostly in adults and was called adult periodontitis, but this disease can appear in young people.
