OBJECTIVE External apical root resorption (EARR) is a frequent iatrogenic effect of orthodontic treatment. Patients with genetic variants in the interleukin 1 gene have been related to an increased risk of suffering EARR. The objective of this study is to determine whether variants in the interleukin 1 receptor antagonist gene are positively/negatively(More)
INTRODUCTION External apical root resorption (EARR) is a frequent iatrogenic effect of orthodontic treatment. The way root-filled teeth respond to orthodontic forces with respect to EARR has been reported as varying widely between individuals. Genetic variants in the interleukin-1 gene have been associated with an increased risk of experiencing(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this prospective longitudinal study was to assess and compare the microbiological and clinical parameters of patients wearing a fixed orthodontic appliance, as opposed to 10 days after the bracket had been removed following treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS In total, 122 patients participated in this study; 61 of the subjects were(More)
AIM To investigate whether the genetic variants of the interleukin-1 gene cluster (IL1) are associated with a possible genetically induced variability in post-orthodontic external apical root resorption (EARR) in root filled teeth and their control counterparts with vital pulps. METHODOLOGY One hundred and forty-six maxillary premolars were evaluated(More)
External apical root resorption (EARR) is a frequent iatrogenic problem following orthodontic treatment in endodontically-treated teeth, about which the literature reports substantial variability in post-orthodontic treatment EARR responses. The main focus of the present study is to clarify whether variants in the interleukin-1 receptor antagonist gene(More)
