BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of full-mouth scaling and root planing (FMSRP) and partial-mouth scaling and root planing (PMSRP), up to 12 mo after treatment, on clinical parameters, and levels of cytokines and osteoclastogenesis-related factors in type 2 diabetic subjects with chronic periodontitis.

BACKGROUND This study investigates the effect of photodynamic therapy (PDT) as monotherapy during supportive periodontal therapy. METHODS A split-mouth, randomized controlled trial was conducted in patients with chronic periodontitis (N = 22) presenting at least three residual pockets (probing depth [PD] ≥5 mm with bleeding on probing [BOP]). The selected(More)
BACKGROUND The present study aims to compare the performance of minimally invasive non-surgical and surgical approaches for the therapy of intrabony defects. METHODS Twenty-nine patients who presented with intrabony defects were randomly assigned to: 1) a minimally invasive non-surgical technique (MINST) group, or 2) minimally invasive surgical technique(More)
BACKGROUND This study investigates the impact of enamel matrix derivative (EMD) proteins on the outcome of a minimally invasive surgical technique (MIST) for the treatment of intrabony defects. METHODS Thirty patients who presented with intrabony defects were randomly assigned to treatment with: 1) MIST plus EMD or 2) MIST alone. Probing depth (PD),(More)
BACKGROUND This study compares the levels of cytokines and bone-related factors in the gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) of systemically healthy patients with chronic periodontitis (CP); and better-controlled, and poorly controlled patients with type 2 diabetes and CP. METHODS Thirty-seven patients with type 2 diabetes and CP and 20 systemically healthy(More)
AIM This study compared the levels of tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-α, interferon (IFN)-γ, interleukin (IL)-4, IL-17 and IL-23 in the gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) from well-controlled and poorly controlled type 2 diabetic subjects with chronic periodontitis, before and after periodontal therapy. MATERIAL AND METHODS Eighteen well-controlled (glycated(More)
BACKGROUND Resveratrol (3,4',5-trihydroxystilbene) is a naturally occurring product found in numerous plants. Among its biologic properties, resveratrol may promote immunomodulatory effects on the host response. This study investigates the effect of continuous administration of resveratrol on the progression of experimental periodontitis in rats. METHODS(More)
This study investigated the effect of resveratrol on bone healing and its influence on the gene expression of osteogenic markers. Two calvarial defects were created and one screw-shaped titanium implant was inserted in the tibia of rats that were assigned to daily administration of placebo (control group, n=15) or 10mg/kg of resveratrol (RESV group, n=15)(More)
BACKGROUND Excessive gingival display (EGD) has a negative impact on a pleasant smile. Minimally invasive therapeutic modalities have become the standard treatment in many dentistry fields. Therefore, the aim of this study is to compare the clinical outcomes of open-flap (OF) and minimally invasive flapless (FL) esthetic crown lengthening (ECL) for the(More)
This case series evaluated the clinical performance and patient-centered outcomes after a minimally invasive surgical technique (MIST) associated with enamel matrix protein derivative (EMD), for the treatment of intra-bony defects. Twelve patients presenting teeth with probing depth >or=5 mm and bleeding on probing associated with radiographic evidence of(More)
