Incidence of oral habits in children with mixed dentition.
Oral habits are a frequent finding, although the cause relation to periodontitis has yet to be cleared completely, a result that does not exclude the oral habits from aetiology of the periodontal pathology. Expand
Clinical and microbiological parameters in patients with self-ligating and conventional brackets during early phase of orthodontic treatment.
Backet design does not seem to have a strong influence on periodontal clinical parameters andperiodontal pathogens in subgingival plaque, and the correlation between some periodontic pathogens and clinical periodontAL parameters was weak. Expand
Pre-term delivery and periodontal disease: a case-control study from Croatia.
There are strong indicators that periodontal therapy should form a part of preventive prenatal care in Croatia, andperiodontal disease represents a strong, independent, and clinically significant risk factor for PTB in the studied cohort. Expand
Coronally advanced flap alone or with connective tissue graft in the treatment of single gingival recession defects: a long-term randomized clinical trial.
The CAF+CTG procedure provided better long-term outcomes (60 months postoperatively) than CAF alone and both surgical procedures were effective in the treatment of single Miller Class I and II GR defects. Expand
Reasons for extraction of permanent teeth in urban and rural populations of Croatia.

The significance of salivary and serum interleukin 6 and basic fibroblast growth factor levels in patients with Sjögren's syndrome.
Elevated levels of salivary IL-6 and bFGF in patients with SS when compared to the healthy controls were found, and it might speculate that higher levels of SalivaryIL- 6 and b FGF in Patients with SS might originate from local production probably having source in thesalivary glands. Expand
Apical leakage of five root canal sealers after one year of storage.
A fluid transport model study was used to compare the sealing ability of five root canal sealers on 60 single-rooted teeth after 1 yr of storage, and Apexit leaked significantly more than AH Plus and Ketac-Endo and Diaket showed no significant difference. Expand
The effect of two different bracket types on the salivary levels of S mutans and S sobrinus in the early phase of orthodontic treatment.
The number of colony-forming units of S mutans and S sobrinus in stimulated saliva samples does not seem to be significantly different between patients with stainless steel brackets and patients with plastic brackets. Expand
