PURPOSE The present study has two aims; firstly, it attempts to verify the presence of oxidative stress by estimating the reactive oxygen species (ROS) levels in periodontal pockets ≥5 mm as compared to controls. The second aim is to evaluate the effect of lycopene as a locally delivered antioxidant gel on periodontal health and on the gingival crevicular(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to evaluate the antiinflammatory, antiinfective and clinical properties of amniotic membrane (AM) when used for guided tissue regeneration (GTR) in contained interdental defects. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 30 subjects participated in this study. Two sites in each subject were randomly assigned into each of(More)
PURPOSE To assess oral hygiene and the gingival and periodontal disease status in subjects scored under the modified Mallampati classification (MMC) of the oropharynx. PATIENTS AND METHODS The clinical parameters included recording MMC scores, simplified oral hygiene index (OHI-S), modified gingival index (MGI), tongue coating index (TCI) and periodontal(More)
Soft tissue deficiencies and defects around dental implants have been observed frequently. Soft-tissue defects after implant procedures originate from the process of modelling of periimplant mucosa and often cause aesthetic disharmony, food debris accumulation and soft tissue shrinkage. Periimplant mucogingival surgery focuses on creating an optimum band of(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this in vitro study was to investigate the colonization and penetration of specific bacteria on nanosilver-impregnated GTR (guided tissue regeneration) membranes. METHODS Three sets of GTR membranes were used in this study: 1) GTR-C: Plain GTR membrane as a negative control; 2) GTR-NS: GTR membrane impregnated with silver(More)
CONTEXT The inflammatory processes involved in chronic periodontitis and coronary artery diseases (CADs) are similar and produce reactive oxygen species that may result in similar somatic mutations in mitochondrial deoxyribonucleic acid (mtDNA). AIMS The aims of the present study were to identify somatic mtDNA mutations in periodontal and cardiac tissues(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to estimate tissue and gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) levels of the oxidative stress marker 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) in premenopausal, perimenopausal and postmenopausal women with chronic periodontitis. BACKGROUND Oxidative stress has been implicated in the etiopathogenesis of periodontitis and menopause(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this randomized controlled pilot study was to evaluate the effects of indocyanine green (ICG) as an adjunct to nonsurgical periodontal therapy in terms of reduction in percentage of viable bacteria and host tissue injury. METHOD AND MATERIALS The study included a small cohort of 30 subjects diagnosed with chronic periodontitis. Three(More)
