BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to assess the adjunctive clinical effect of the administration of systemic amoxicillin and metronidazole in the non-surgical treatment of generalized aggressive periodontitis (GAP). METHODS Forty-one systemically healthy subjects with GAP were included in this 6-month double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized(More)
BACKGROUND Freeze-dried acellular dermal matrix (ADM) allograft, originally used for full-thickness burn wounds, was recently introduced as an alternative to the autogenous free gingival graft (FGG) in achieving increased attached keratinized tissue. The aim of part 1 of this study was to investigate the clinical efficacy of the ADM allograft for this(More)
This article reviews studies presented during the last 20 years on the surgical treatment of intrabony defects. Treatments include open flap debridement alone (OFD); OFD plus demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft (DFDBA), freeze-dried bone allografts (FDBA), or autogenous bone; and guided tissue regeneration (GTR). The review includes only studies that(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the short-term performance of subgingival local delivery of 2% minocycline gel and conventional subgingival debridement in supportive periodontal therapy (SPT) patients. METHODS Forty adult patients having completed active treatment for moderate to advanced chronic periodontitis were included in a randomized, controlled, single masked(More)
INTRODUCTION The baseline radiographic defect angle has previously been correlated with the clinical outcomes of intrabony defects treated with access flap or guided tissue regeneration. The aim of this study was to investigate whether an association exists between baseline radiographic defect angle and treatment outcome when enamel matrix derivative (EMD)(More)
The objectives of the present investigation were to analyze intraoral radiographs and to study 1) the distribution of the distance between the cemento-enamel junction (CEJ) and the alveolar bone level (BL) and 2) the prevalence and severity of vertical defects, and furcation lesions in 416 individuals seeking dental care. Full mouth radiographs were(More)
BACKGROUND, AIMS This investigation was performed to assess longitudinal changes in periodontal bone height in an adult population over a period of 17 years. METHODS In 1973, a random sample of 1000 individuals aged 3-70 years in the city of Jönköping, Sweden, was examined clinically and radiographically to assess dental status and treatment needs. Out of(More)
The pattern of axially (perpendicular to the occlusal plane) directed occlusal forces developed during light tooth tapping in habitual occlusion, chewing, swallowing and maximal biting was studied in twelve subjects whose dentitions were periodontally treated and prosthetically restored with cross-arch bridges with unilateral posterior two-unit cantilevers.(More)
A system for obtaining and culturing mouse two-cell embryos is described, and its importance as a quality control assay and experimental model for human IVF programs is discussed. Over 2000 embryos from B6CBAF1 mice were cultured in either 115 preparations of Ham's F10 medium supplemented with 15% human fetal cord serum (H + FCS, a human IVF medium) or 18(More)
BACKGROUND In part 1 of this study, we compared the clinical efficacy of freeze-dried acellular dermal matrix (ADM) allograft in 6 patients with autogenous free gingival graft (FGG) in 6 patients for increasing the width of attached gingiva in the mandibular anterior area. The purpose of the present study was to histologically compare the microstructure of(More)
