Clinical, histologic and scanning electron microscopic study of the use of the Prophy-Jet. The Prophy-Jet (Cavitron-International) is used for the removal of gross stain and heavy plaque. In this study the plaque and stain removal capacities have been investigated in patients with a healthy and inflamed gingiva. The influence of the spray of cleaning powder(More)
Anthelmintic resistance is emerging in dairy cattle and this can result in a lack of effective control and production losses. Therefore, sustainable control strategies, such as targeted treatments (TT) and targeted selected treatments (TST), should be adopted by the industry. TT and TST approaches require the use of diagnostic methods to take informed(More)
The development of periodontitis is always preceded by a gingivitis. Therefore, the studies of the etiological, histopathological, microbiological and therapeutic aspects of gingivitis form an essential contribution to the prevention of the major oral diseases. After 9-21 days without oral hygiene, in a previously healthy gingiva, a generalized mild(More)
Gastrointestinal nematodes present a major threat to the health and welfare of equids worldwide. Anthelmintic resistance (AR) is increasingly reported and challenges effective control in horses and ponies in many regions. The use of faecal worm egg counts (FECs) to support targeted treatment (FEC-TT) and targeted selective treatment (FEC-TST) has been(More)
