BACKGROUND Gingival melanin depigmentation procedures are commonly associated with recurrence of pigmentation, which starts with migration of melanocytes from the adjacent free gingiva. The extent and rate of recurrence varies according to the treatment modalities used and duration of follow-up. The aim of this study is to compare the surgical stripping;(More)
BACKGROUND Anemia of chronic disease is defined as anemia occurring in chronic infections and inflammatory conditions that is not caused by marrow deficiencies or other diseases and in the presence of adequate iron stores and vitamins. Periodontitis is a chronic infectious condition of the supporting tissues of the teeth caused by subgingival microbial(More)
AIM The aim of this report is to review the status of the use of surgical microscopes and microsurgery and their clinical application in the field of periodontics. BACKGROUND The use of magnification systems and periodontal microsurgery are part of a broad movement in dentistry toward the use of minimally invasive procedures to replace the need for more(More)
Hereditary gingival fibromatosis (HGF) is a rare disorder characterized by progressive and varying degrees of gingival overgrowth. Oral manifestations may vary from minimal involvement of only tuberosity area and the buccal gingiva around the lower molars to a generalized gingival enlargement. It can occur as an isolated disorder but can be one feature of a(More)

BACKGROUND Dentin hypersensitivity results when patent tubules are exposed to pain-inducing external stimuli. AIM This study aims to compare the effects of two desensitizing dentifrices containing NovaMin and arginine on dentinal tubule occlusion with and without citric acid challenge in vitro using confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM). MATERIALS(More)
Periodontitis is an inflammatory disease caused by microbial infection that leads to destruction of supporting tissues of the teeth. The periodontal tissue destruction is a result of both microbial activity as well as host response. The best chance for clinical improvement may come from implementing complementary treatment strategies that target different(More)
BACKGROUND Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is an oxidizing agent with known bactericidal, viricidal and fungicidal properties. Its efficacy in reducing the halitosis has been established by previous literature. However, data evaluating its antiplaque property is scarce. Chlorhexidine (CHX) is considered as the gold standard and an effective adjunctive to mechanical(More)
Introduction: The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of combination therapy of diode laser and photodynamic therapy (PDT) as an adjunct to scaling and root planing (SRP) on interleukin-17 (IL-17) levels in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) in patients with chronic periodontitis. Methods: Thirty subjects with chronic periodontitis were included.(More)
