Oral and Dental Aspects of Chronic Renal Failure
TLDR
Worldwide, increasing numbers of persons have CRF; thus, oral health care staffs are increasingly likely to provide care for patients with such disease, and the current knowledge of the oral and dental aspects of chronic renal failure is reviewed. Expand
Adjunctive benefits of systemic amoxicillin and metronidazole in non-surgical treatment of generalized aggressive periodontitis: a randomized placebo-controlled clinical trial.
TLDR
It is indicated that a 7-day adjunctive course of systemic metronidazole and amoxicillin significantly improved the short-term clinical outcomes of full-mouth non-surgical periodontal debridement in subjects with GAP. Expand
Treatment of periodontal disease for glycaemic control in people with diabetes.
TLDR
Some evidence of improvement in metabolic control in people with diabetes, after treating periodontal disease is found, although individually these lacked the power to detect a significant effect. Expand
A systematic review of definitions of periodontitis and methods that have been used to identify this disease.
TLDR
A systematic review and critical analysis of the definitions ofperiodontitis and the methods which have been used to identify and measure this disease confirmed previous work which has suggested that epidemiological studies of periodontal diseases are complicated by the diversity of methodologies and definitions used. Expand
Systematic review of implant outcomes in treated periodontitis subjects.
TLDR
There is some evidence that patients treated for periodontitis may experience more implant loss and complications around implants than non-periodontitis patients and evidence is stronger for implant survival than implant success. Expand
Treatment of periodontal disease for glycaemic control in people with diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
The primary outcome was blood glucose levels measured as glycated (glycosylated) haemoglobin assay (HbA1c), and secondary outcomes included adverse effects, periodontal indices, cost implications and diabetic complications. Expand
Amoxicillin and metronidazole as an adjunctive treatment in generalized aggressive periodontitis at initial therapy or re-treatment: a randomized controlled clinical trial.
TLDR
Patients who received antibiotics at initial therapy, showed statistically significant improvement in pocket depth reduction and in the % of sites improving above clinically relevant thresholds, compared with patients who receivediotics at re-treatment. Expand
Orofacial granulomatosis: clinical features and long-term outcome of therapy.
TLDR
Orofacial granulomatosis can show multiple facial and mucosal clinical features and response to therapy is highly variable even though in the long-term complete/partial disease resolution can be obtained in the majority of patients. Expand
An audit of the efficacy of the oral brush biopsy technique in a specialist Oral Medicine unit.
TLDR
It is concluded that not all potentially malignant disease is detected with this non-invasive investigative procedure. Expand
A systematic review of the effect of surgical debridement vs non-surgical debridement for the treatment of chronic periodontitis.
TLDR
Both scaling androot planing alone and scaling and root planing combined with flap procedure are effective methods for the treatment of chronic periodontitis in terms of attachment level gain and reduction in gingival inflammation. Expand
