OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to assess the biological rationale for the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) by evaluating the effect of different concentrations of PRP on osteoblasts (OB) and fibroblasts (FB) function in vitro. MATERIAL AND METHODS PRP was obtained from volunteer donors using standard protocols. Primary human cultures of oral FBs(More)
AIM To systematically review the literature to compare implant survival (IS) and marginal bone loss (MBL) around platform-switched (PS) versus conventionally restored platform-matching dental implants. MATERIAL AND METHODS Randomized, controlled human clinical trials (RCTs) comparing IS and MBL in PS and conventionally restored implants, with 12 months of(More)
The effect of endo-alveolar and sub-mucosal administration of dexamethasone sodium phosphate to prevent inflammatory sequelae after surgical removal of lower third molars was studied. Forty-three patients underwent bilateral extractions of lower third molars and were randomly assigned to receive either dexamethasone 4 mg (group A) or 10 mg (group B) as(More)

OBJECTIVE To compare the short-term performance of subgingival local delivery of 2% minocycline gel and conventional subgingival debridement in supportive periodontal therapy (SPT) patients. METHODS Forty adult patients having completed active treatment for moderate to advanced chronic periodontitis were included in a randomized, controlled, single masked(More)
Sinus augmentation is a commonly used procedure in implant dentistry. However, a general consensus on implant survival after this procedure is still lacking. The objective of this study was to systematically review implant survival following sinus augmentation procedures compared with conventional implant placement in the posterior maxilla. Following the(More)
Peri-implant diseases are defined as inflammatory lesions of the surrounding peri-implant tissues and include peri-implant mucositis (an inflammatory lesion limited to the surrounding mucosa of an implant) and peri-implantitis (an inflammatory lesion of the mucosa that affects the supporting bone with resulting loss of osseointegration). This review aims to(More)
The objective of this study was to determine, retrospectively, the influence of various risk factors on the staging of bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) in a population attending a department of dentistry and oral surgery in Italy. Data were collected from the electronic and paper medical records of 90 patients receiving intravenous(More)
AIM The aim was to assess the potential trends in Periodontology and Periodontics in Europe that might be anticipated by the year 2025, using the Delphi method. MATERIAL AND METHODS The expert opinion of 120 experts was sought through the use of an open-ended questionnaire, developed by an advisory group, containing 40 questions concerning the various(More)
