The purpose of the study was to examine the anti-malodor, anti-gingivitis, and plaque reducing properties of a 2 phase oil:water mouthrinse compared with a control mouthrinse. Fifty subjects rinsed with one of the two rinses for 30 seconds twice a day over 6 weeks, while continuing their normal oral hygiene habits. Measurements were made at time zero (prior(More)
Chromium (Cr) content of the self-selected diets of 10 adult males and 22 females was determined. Each subject collected duplicate food and beverage samples on a daily basis for seven consecutive days. The 7-day average intake for males was 33 +/- 3 micrograms (mean +/- SEM), range 22-48 micrograms, and intake for females was 25 +/- 1, range 13-36. Mean Cr(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the impact of overloading on peri-implant bone level and the bone-to-implant contact (BIC) in the presence of healthy or inflamed peri-implant tissues. MATERIALS AND METHODS Four screw-shaped machined implants were placed bilaterally in the mandible of four beagle dogs and left submerged for 3 months. Prosthetic abutments were(More)
PURPOSE To differentiate between the survival and success definitions of functional hydroxyapatite (HA)-coated implant prosthesis. METHODS A total of 248 implants (62 patients), 5-10 years in function, were evaluated. The implant distribution length was 8 mm (6.5%), 10 mm (29.4%), 13 mm (30.2%) and 15 mm (33.9%). The diameter was 3.25 mm (60.1%) and 4 mm(More)
BACKGROUND Early barrier membrane degradation may result in decreased bone formation in guided bone regeneration (GBR) procedures. The aim of this study was to evaluate the bio-degradation of cross-linked (CLM) and non-cross-linked (NCLM) collagen membranes experimentally exposed to the oral environment of study animals. METHODS In eight cats, 48 surgical(More)
OBJECTIVES Bone replacement substitutes are almost unavoidable in augmentation procedures such as sinus grafting. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the osteoconductive capability of two different scaffold fillers in inducing newly formed bone in this procedure. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sinus floor augmentation and implant placement were(More)
Whereas previous studies have shown correlations between volatile sulphur compounds (VSC) and bad breath levels, it is probable that other compounds found in the oral cavity may contribute to oral malodor. In the present investigation, the possibility that diamines (cadaverine and putrescine) are associated with oral malodor parameters was assessed. Saliva(More)
OBJECTIVE This double-blind study clinically and histologically evaluated long-term barrier bio-durability of cross-linked and non-cross-linked collagen membranes (CLM and NCLM) in sites treated by guided bone regeneration procedures. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 52 patients, 52 bony defects were randomly assigned to treatment with either a CLM or a NCLM.(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare extraction sites augmented with bovine bone mineral (BBM) with and without resorbable membrane coverage. BBM particles were grafted in fresh human extraction sockets of 23 patients; in 12 of these patients, a guided tissue regeneration (GTR) membrane was applied. After 9 months of histomorphometric evaluation,(More)
Localized lack of bone volume in the jaws may be due to congenital, post-traumatic, postsurgical defects or different disease processes. Increasing the bone volume has long been an attractive field of basic and clinical research. The introduction of implant therapy, and the proven relationship between long-term prognosis of dental implants and adequate bone(More)
