OBJECTIVES Increased levels of reactive oxygen species lead to oxidative stress. Recent data suggest increased lipid peroxidation (LPO) levels and oxidative stress in periodontitis. Malondialdehyde (MDA), a significant LPO product, increases in oxidative stress. In this study, MDA levels and total oxidant status (TOS) in serum, saliva and gingival(More)
OBJECTIVE Evidence reveals the role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in many pathologies including periodontitis. Protein carbonylation is the most widely used biomarker for oxidative damage to proteins, and reflects cellular damage induced by ROS. In this study protein carbonyl (PC) levels in serum and gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) in patients with(More)
OBJECTIVES Menopause has been linked with oxidative stress and decreased antioxidant (AO) defence. A connection has been established between menopause and certain periodontal conditions. The objective of this study is to compare serum and gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) total antioxidant capacity (TAOC) and superoxide dismutase (SOD) concentrations in(More)
BACKGROUND There is evidence of reduced antioxidant (AO) defense in periodontitis and pregnancy and adverse interactions between periodontitis and pregnancy. METHODS In this study, serum and gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) total AO capacity (TAOC) and superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme concentrations in pregnant patients with chronic periodontitis (CP)(More)
In this study, the clinical efficacies of systemic doxycycline (SD) and local doxycycline (LD) in the treatment of chronic periodontitis were compared. Forty-five patients were studied in 3 main groups with 5 treatments: SD alone, SD+scaling-root planing (SD+SRP), LD alone, LD+SRP and SRP alone. Antibiotic-treated patients were given doxycycline treatment(More)
OBJECTIVE Antioxidant defence reduces in diabetes mellitus (DM) and periodontitis. This study investigates antioxidant enzyme; superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity in gingiva and blood glucose and lipid levels in type-2 DM patients and systemically healthy individuals with chronic periodontitis (CP). MATERIALS AND METHODS Periodontal parameters, blood(More)
This study evaluated the clinical and radiographic results of the intentional replantation of periodontally hopeless teeth with combined enamel matrix derivative and demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft therapy. Eleven patients (five female, six male; age range, 13 to 53 years) with 12 periodontally hopeless teeth resulting from extensive alveolar bone(More)

The aim of the present study was to investigate the prevalence and etiology of dental trauma in children aged 2-15 in the Eastern Black Sea Region of Turkey. The study evaluated 226 patients (139 boys, 87girls) with 346 traumatized teeth who were referred to the Department of Pediatric Dentistry at the Faculty of Dentistry of Karadeniz Technical University(More)
