BACKGROUND/AIM   Intrusive luxation in the permanent dentition is an uncommon injury but it is considered one of the most severe types of dental trauma because of the risk for damage to the periodontal ligament, pulp and alveolar bone. Management of intrusive luxation in the permanent dentition is controversial. The purpose of this study was to evaluate(More)
AIM The purpose of this study was to analyze tooth loss after root fractures and to assess the influence of the type of healing and the location of the root fracture. Furthermore, the actual cause of tooth loss was analyzed. MATERIAL AND METHODS Long-term survival rates were calculated using data from 492 root-fractured teeth in 432 patients. The cause of(More)
The purpose of the study was to evaluate and assess the survival rate of 534 root fractured teeth, including factors that may affect the survival rate but were not included in previous long-term studies. Location of fracture was registered as in the cervical, cervical/middle, middle and apical one-third of the root, and root development was categorized into(More)
Subjects with Down syndrome have a high prevalence of periodontal disease. The aim was to investigate the level of Th1-, Th2- and Th17-related cytokines in the gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) of subjects with Down syndrome. Subjects with Down syndrome (n = 24) and controls (n = 29) with a mean age of 16.4 years were clinically examined with respect to(More)
AIM The present study was designed to investigate whether a logbook helps undergraduate students to develop the ability to self-reflect and to increase their self-awareness. METHODS A logbook was introduced to 54 dental students in their fourth year of education at the beginning of the paediatric dentistry course. The students filled in a questionnaire on(More)
The aim was to assess how accurately some commonly used risk factors/risk markers (predictors) for caries development could identify children with and without approximal caries as judged from bitewing radiography. Two hundred and sixty-seven consecutive 5-year-old children from two Swedish cities participated. Three experienced dentists examined the(More)
The aim was to study the levels of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), leukotriene B4 (LTB4), and matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) from Down syndrome patients exhibiting gingival inflammation. The levels of PGE2, LTB4, and MMP-9 were determined in GCF from 18 Down syndrome patients and from 14 controls matched with respect to age(More)
The purpose of this study was to analyze tooth mobility changes in root-fractured permanent teeth and relate this to type of interfragment healing (hard tissue healing (HT), interfragment healing with periodontal ligament (PDL) and nonhealing with interposition of granulation tissue (GT) because of pulp necrosis in the coronal fragment. Furthermore, the(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM The aim of the study was to evaluate the survival of intruded permanent teeth related to treatment in a large number of patients, with special focus on development of pulp necrosis and replacement resorption (ankylosis-related resorption). MATERIALS AND METHODS The material consisted of 168 patients (mean age 9.6 years) with 230 intruded(More)
Oral mucositis (OM) is a severe side effect of conditioning for allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationship between oral mucositis and the levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines—both in serum and in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF), in relation to different conditioning regimens.(More)
