AIM The objective of this study was to compare acellular dermal matrix graft (ADM) combination with coronally advanced flap (CAF) on complete defect coverage, aesthetics and patient satisfaction with CAF alone for multiple recessions with gingival thickness (GT) <0.8 mm. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-eight Miller Class I multiple recessions ≥3 mm were(More)
AIM The purpose of this study was to assess the healing response of intrabony defects following regenerative treatment with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) combined with a bovine-derived xenograft (BDX) in smokers and non-smokers. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 24 advanced chronic periodontitis patients, 12 smokers and 12 non-smokers, with 113 intrabony(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to evaluate and compare the efficacy of CO(2) and Er:YAG lasers alone and in combination with topical sodium fluoride (NaF) in the management of dentine hypersensitivity. MATERIALS AND METHODS A group of 50 patients presenting with a total of 420 hypersensitive teeth were randomly allocated into five groups.(More)
BACKGROUND This study evaluates the effects on clinical and biochemical parameters of Lactobacillus reuteri-containing probiotic supplementation adjunctive to initial periodontal therapy in patients with chronic periodontitis (CP). METHODS Thirty patients with CP were included and divided into two groups. Every patient had, in each quadrant, ≥2 teeth each(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study is to assess the healing outcomes of intrabony defects after treatment with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) versus platelet-poor plasma (PPP) combined with bovine-derived xenograft (BDX). METHODS Using a split-mouth design, a total of 79 intrabony defects with an intrabony component of ≥3 mm in 20 patients were treated(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study is to evaluate the potential use of diode lasers (DLs) to reduce bacteremia associated with ultrasonic scaling (US). Furthermore, the clinical efficacy of DLs as an adjunct to US in the treatment of gingivitis was investigated. BACKGROUND DATA Recently, lasers have found new applications in dental practice. The benefits(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this pilot study was to evaluate the occluding effect of erbium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Er:YAG) and carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers as monotherapy and in combination with topical fluoride gel on human dentinal tubules by scanning electron microscopic (SEM) examination. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-six dentine specimens with exposed(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the in vitro effects of Er:YAG laser and an in-office desensitizing paste alone or in combination by using scanning electron microscopic (SEM) analysis. BACKGROUND DATA Various treatment modalities have been proposed for dentin hypersensitivity, but to date, no single agent or form of treatment has been(More)
AIM The aim of this randomized controlled clinical study was to evaluate the outcomes of acellular dermal matrix (ADM) graft in combination with tunnel technique (TUN) on root coverage, aesthetics, and patient satisfaction and to compare with coronally advanced flap (CAF)+ADM in the treatment of multiple gingival recessions. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this preliminary study was to evaluate the occluding effect of topical gaseous ozone application and Er:YAG laser on human dentine tubules by scanning electron microscopic (SEM) analysis. METHODS Twenty-four dentine specimens were divided into three groups. Group I, including specimens treated only with citric acid, served as(More)
