OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to quantitatively determine, at chair side, the serum C-reactive protein (CRP) levels in dental emergency patients. STUDY DESIGN Quantitative CRP test was performed at chair side in 40 patients with acute alveolar abscess (AAA), acute periodontal abscess (APA), and alveolar osteitis (AO) at the time of dental(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effects of 6% H2O2 activated with LED light on surface enamel as compared to orange juice challenges in vitro. METHODS A total of 40 human enamel discs were incubated in saliva overnight to allow pellicle formation and then divided into three groups: 15 for whitening treatments, 15 for orange juice immersions and 10 for normal(More)
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the clinical success and patient satisfaction when dental implant-retained mandibular overdentures are placed and restored by novice general dentistry residents. A total of 50 subjects who were dissatisfied with their mandibular complete dentures were enrolled in the study. Two dental implants were placed in(More)
PURPOSE We conducted a synthetic quantitative review of the published clinical trials on the effectiveness of antibiotic prophylaxis in third molar surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS Electronic databases were searched for randomized controlled trials. The primary outcome variables included alveolar osteitis (AO) and surgical wound infection. The extracted(More)
To assess the effects of smokeless tobacco on the secretory immune system and dental caries, we examined users of smokeless tobacco and non-tobacco users. There were no significant differences in the prevalence of DMFS between users and non-users. There was significantly more salivary IgA, IgA2 and J-chain in users. Levels of salivary lysozyme and(More)
The aim of this study was to review the cytokine profiles in the synovial fluid (SF) of patients with temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJD). Databases were searched from 1965 till September 2015 using different combinations of the following key words: "Temporomandibular joint"; "Cytokine"; "disorder"; and "synovial fluid" and "inflammation". Titles and(More)
OBJECTIVES This study assesses the application of the focus variation 3D microscopy for the evaluation of dental erosion and fluoride treatment for prevention of enamel erosion in vitro. METHODS Human dental enamel disks were treated with Prevident 5000 (PV, n=15) for 1 week and compared with a reference group (PN, n=15) after orange juice erosion in(More)
BACKGROUND Primary implant stability (PS) is one of the main factors influencing implant survival rate. Several methods to determine the PS have been used, such as Periotest values (PVs) and resonance frequency analysis (RFA) with implant stability quotient (ISQ) values. PURPOSE The aim of this study was to compare different implant designs in regard to(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim was to compare the periodontal inflammatory conditions among habitual gutka chewers and betel quid (BQ) chewers. MATERIAL AND METHODS Forty-five gutka chewers, 45 BQ chewers and 50 non-chewers (controls) were included. Demographic data regarding age, gender, duration, and frequency of gutka- and BQ-chewing habits and gingival bleeding(More)
