OBJECTIVES Hyaluronic acid (hyaluronan) is a glycosaminoglycan with anti-inflammatory and antiedematous properties. It was evaluated in a gel formulation for its effect in the treatment of plaque-induced gingivitis. METHOD In a randomised double-blind study, 50 male subjects with plaque-induced gingivitis were divided into two groups and used a verum or(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to verify (i) if crevicular fluid defence variables reflect the changes after surgical periodontal treatment and (ii) if they are in correspondence with changes of these variables in the unstimulated and stimulated whole saliva. MATERIAL AND METHODS For 12 male and 13 female volunteers with chronic periodontitis(More)
BACKGROUND The impact of moxifloxacin (MOX) was analyzed in the treatment of severe chronic periodontitis. METHODS In a randomized, prospective, clinical multicenter trial, 92 subjects with severe chronic periodontitis were treated with scaling and root planing (SRP) alone (control group; n = 21), SRP plus adjunctive doxycycline (DOX group; n = 36), or(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine in vitro the action of chlorhexidine digluconate and different commercially available mouthrinses on oral microorganisms. METHOD AND MATERIALS Minimal inhibitory concentrations and possible induction of resistance by chlorhexidine digluconate, an essential oil-containing mouthwash and an amine fluoride/stannous fluoride solution,(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to determine the effect of a probiotic milk drink on gingival health and the development of experimental gingivitis. MATERIAL AND METHODS Fifty volunteer students took part in a parallel-designed non-blinded study. The test group drank a probiotic drink once a day; the control group did not receive any product to drink. After(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to determine in a randomized trial the impact on treatment outcome after 12 months of different subgingival irrigation solutions during scaling and root planing (SRP). METHODS Fifty-one adult volunteers with generalized chronic periodontitis were treated by full-mouth SRP using 0.9% sodium chloride, 0.12% chlorhexidine(More)
PURPOSE To assess the one-step self-etching adhesive iBond Gluma inside (1-SE) and the two-step etch-and rinse adhesive Gluma Comfort Bond (2-ER), both used in combination with the fine particle hybrid composite Venus, in a laboratory and in a prospective clinical study. MATERIALS AND METHODS In the in vitro study, tooth-composite interaction,(More)
Only a few studies of dental plaque in transmission electron microscopy (TEM) have been performed. The authors have applied TEM for morphometric analysis of dental plaque. Wearing acrylic splints with bovine enamel pieces on the buccal surface of teeth 36 and 46, 21 volunteers rinsed twice a day with a solution of chlorhexidine digluconate, amine/stannous(More)
Caries as a multifactorial process is influenced by salivary defense. Cluster analyses should give additional information on the role of salivary variables in relation to caries increment. Samples of unstimulated and stimulated whole saliva from 28 young adults (mean age 23.5±2.1 years) were analyzed for flow rate, pH and buffer variables, lysozyme,(More)
The aim of this study was to quantify the influence of different mouth rinses on dental plaque. Wearing splints with enamel pieces 24 volunteers rinsed with essential oils, amine/stannous fluoride, or chlorhexidine digluconate (0.12%) mouth rinses. After 24, 48, 72, and 96 h the enamel pieces were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy. The counts of(More)
