BACKGROUND Periodontal subgingival pathogens affect local and systemic immune responses and initiate an acute phase systemic inflammatory response characterized by the release of C-reactive proteins (CRPs). This study has been carried out to evaluate the serum concentration of CRPs, which can be used as a marker of periodontal disease as well as a risk(More)
The human body comprises molecules; hence, the availability of molecular nanotechnology will permit dramatic progress to address medical problems and will use molecular knowledge to maintain and improve human health at the molecular scale. Nanomedicine could develop devices that are able to work inside the human body in order to identify the early presence(More)
Periodontal subgingival pathogens affect local and systemic immune and inflammatory response and cause the release of cytokines; this results in periodontal destruction and initiation of an acute phase systemic inflammatory response characterized by the release of C-reactive proteins (CRP). This study set out to evaluate the serum concentration of CRP that(More)
AIM To assess the effectiveness of several concentrations of two forms of passion fruit juice (PFJ) in the elimination of Enterococcus faecalis and to compare the antibacterial property of PFJ with sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) as an intracanal irrigant. METHODS Two types of PFJs, aqueous and alcohol extracts, were prepared and a minimum inhibitory(More)
Introduction: The Crouzon syndrome is a rare clinical condition that affects the craniofacial skeleton development. It accounts for about 4.8% of all the cases of craniosynostosis, and it is the most common syndrome presenting with craniosynostoses. The Crouzon syndrome’s early diagnosis is critical to avoid cranial hypertension as well as visual(More)
OBJECTIVE The study was conducted to assess the postural awareness of dental students in Jizan, Saudi Arabia. MATERIALS AND METHODS Close-ended, self-administered questionnaires were used for data collection in the survey. The questionnaire was prepared by observing the positions of students working in the clinics and the common mistakes they make with(More)
Ectodermal Dysplasia (ED) is a hereditary disorder characterized by abnormal development of certain tissues and structures of ectodermal origin. The most frequently reported ED syndrome is X-linked hypohidrotic dysplasia, also known as Christ-Siemens-Touraine syndrome, which affects one to seven individuals per 10,000 live births. Orofacial characteristics(More)
INTRODUCTION Root canal treatment enjoys a high success rate all over the world and has saved billions of teeth from extraction. However, there are instances of failure, the main causes being insufficient cleaning and inadequate obturation. In such cases the most conservative treatment option would be non-surgical retreatment. It requires regaining access(More)
Objective: To evaluate the relationship of phenytoin-induced gingival enlargement and inflammation to find out if there is any significant correlation between hyperplastic index and periodontal parameters, the number of fibroblasts and phagocytic cells. Background: The introduction of phenytoin as an anti-epileptic drug in 1938 marked the beginning of a new(More)
It is evident that oral microorganisms have the capacity to respond and adapt to changing environmental conditions. Individual microorganisms are able to sense and process the chemical information from the environment and thereby adjust their phenotypic properties. The term biofilm is used to indicate the presence of a film of condensed microorganisms on(More)
