Study Hypothesis: The administration of 200 mg doxycycline once a day for 7 days after regenerative periodontal therapy of infrabony defects improves the results of therapy (clinical vertical attachment gains [CAL-V], bony fill) and reduces postoperative flap dehiscence and defect exposure.
In each of 90 patients one infrabony defect shall be treated by regenerative techniques (guided tissue regeneration [GTR], enamel matrix derivative [EMD]). Prior to , 6, 12, and 24 months after surgery clinical measurements (Plaque Index [PlI], probing depth [PD], vertical clinical attachment level [CAL-V], Gingival Index [GI]) and standardized radiographs are obtained.

Aim: The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of nonsurgical periodontal therapy plus doxycycline on glycemic control in type 2 diabetes mellitus (type 2 DM) patients who ...
Considering alarming projections in the prevalence of periodontitis, following study was undertaken to develop chitosan-vanillin cross-linked microspheres loaded in-situ gel (MLIG) implants containing...
Doxycycline is currently the most frequently used treatment in patients with scrub typhus, but doxycycline-resistant strains have been found, necessitating the development of a new treatment. Rifampin...
Clinical trials have shown very modest short-term improvements in glycemic control among participants with diabetes after periodontitis treatment. Few longitudinal studies suggest that periodontitis m...
Periodontitis not only causes injury to the periodontium, but also damages other tissues such as: articulate, renal, cardiac and hepatic. The objective of this study was to investigate periodontitis i...
Periodontitis is a chronic inflammatory disease that influences the protective tissues of teeth. IL-8, a member of the chemokine super-family, plays vital roles in the pathogenesis of periodontitis wi...
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)
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.
Inflammation and loss of PERIODONTIUM that is characterized by rapid attachment loss and bone destruction in the presence of little local factors such as DENTAL PLAQUE and DENTAL CALCULUS. This highly destructive form of periodontitis often occurs in young people and was called early-onset periodontitis, but this disease also appears in old people.
A synthetic TETRACYCLINE derivative with similar antimicrobial activity. Animal studies suggest that it may cause less tooth staining than other tetracyclines. It is used in some areas for the treatment of chloroquine-resistant falciparum malaria (MALARIA, FALCIPARUM).
A periodontal pathogen which is a gram-negative member of BACTEROIDETES. It is implicated in PERIODONTITIS.
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
