AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a controlled-released chlorhexidine chip (CHX) as adjunctive therapy to scaling and root planing (SRP) in the treatment of chronic periodontitis. MATERIAL AND METHODS Twenty patients with at least four sites with probing depth >or= 5 mm and bleeding on probing were selected. This randomized(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of subgingival application of Carisolv gel as an adjunctive therapy to scaling and root planing (SRP) on calculus removal compared to conventional instrumentation. Forty-five teeth requiring extraction due to severe periodontal disease were randomized to the following treatments: 1) SRP alone; 2)(More)
Different techniques have been proposed for the treatment of gingival recession. This study compared the clinical results of gingival recession treatment using a subepithelial connective tissue graft and an acellular dermal matrix allograft. Seven patients with bilateral Miller class I or II gingival recession were selected. Twenty-six recessions were(More)
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is one of the most common metabolic disorders. DM is characterized by hyperglycaemia, resulting in wound healing difficulties and systemic and oral manifestations, which have a direct effect on dental pulp integrity. Experimental and clinical studies have demonstrated a higher prevalence of periapical lesions in patients with(More)
AIM To systematically evaluate the accuracy of host-derived salivary biomarkers in the diagnosis of periodontal disease based on the given sensitivity and specificity information. MATERIALS AND METHODS Studies were eligible for inclusion if they had compared the diagnostic application of salivary biomarkers with clinical examination of periodontal(More)
The aim of this study was to analyze, under scanning electron microscopy (SEM), the morphologic characteristics of root surfaces after application of Carisolv gel in association with scaling and root planing (SRP). Sixty periodontally compromised extracted human teeth were randomly assigned to 6 groups: 1) SRP alone; 2) passive topical application of(More)
