BACKGROUND The association between Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans (previously Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans), Porphyromonas gingivalis, and Tannerella forsythia (previously T. forsythensis) and periodontal disease has been reported in Western populations. However, corresponding data in Asian populations are still lacking. The aim of this study(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to determine the effect of cigarette smoking on the severity of periodontitis in a cross-sectional study of older Thai adults. METHODS The study population consisted of 1,960 subjects (age 50 to 73 years old). All subjects received both medical and dental examinations. Periodontal examinations, including plaque score,(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to identify risk indicators for periodontitis using cross-sectional data from a group of older Thai adults. METHODS The study group consisted of 2,005 individuals, aged 50 to 73 years old. They received detailed medical examinations and periodontal examinations including plaque score, probing depth, and clinical(More)
Periodontitis is a polymicrobial infection of tooth-supporting tissues. This cross-sectional study aimed to examine the associations between five target species and severe periodontitis in a Thai population. Using the CDC/AAP case definition, individuals diagnosed with no/mild and severe periodontitis were included. Quantitative analyses of Aggregatibacter(More)
BACKGROUND Polymorphisms of the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene have been implicated in susceptibility to infections and bone-related diseases. However, their relationship with periodontal disease remains unclear. This cross-sectional study investigates whether susceptibility to chronic periodontitis (CP) in a Thai population is associated with VDR(More)
AIM This study aimed to investigate the effects of cigarette smoking on periodontal conditions in specific tooth regions of older Thai men. METHODS There were 272 current smokers, 714 former smokers, and 477 non-smokers enrolled in the present study. Differences between groups in the mean probing depth or attachment loss were compared using ancova. The(More)
AIM To investigate the cytotoxicity of three flowable resin composites that potentially useful as retrograde filling materials, compared with mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA). METHODS Ten standard cylinder discs were used for each of the tested materials: Tetric Flow, Filtex Flow, Aeliteflo, and MTA, which were prepared under aseptic conditions.(More)
BACKGROUND Langerhans' cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare disorder characterized by Langerhans' cell proliferation in various organs or tissues. When periodontal tissue is involved, clinical manifestations can vary from gingival recession and pocket formation to severe alveolar bone loss. This case report describes periodontal pathogens found in the pockets(More)
