Treatment of periodontitis and endothelial function.
Intensive periodontal treatment resulted in acute, short-term systemic inflammation and endothelial dysfunction, however, 6 months after therapy, the benefits in oral health were associated with improvement in endothelial function. Expand
Periodontitis: Consensus report of workgroup 2 of the 2017 World Workshop on the Classification of Periodontal and Peri-Implant Diseases and Conditions.
A new periodontitis classification scheme has been adopted, in which forms of the disease previously recognized as "chronic" or "aggressive" are now grouped under a single category ("periodontitis")Expand
Staging and grading of periodontitis: Framework and proposal of a new classification and case definition
The proposed case definition extends beyond description based on severity to include characterization of biological features of the disease and represents a first step towards adoption of precision medicine concepts to the management of periodontitis. Expand
Periodontal risk assessment (PRA) for patients in supportive periodontal therapy (SPT).
A functional diagram may help the clinician in determining the risk for disease progression on the subject level and may be useful in customizing the frequency and content of SPT visits. Expand
The in vitro effect of different PRP concentrations on osteoblasts and fibroblasts.
PRP preparations exert a dose-specific effect on oral FBs and OBs and resulted in a reduction in proliferation and a suboptimal effect on OB function, suggesting different PRP concentrations may have an impact on the results that can be obtained in vivo. Expand
Periodontitis and Systemic Inflammation: Control of the Local Infection is Associated with a Reduction in Serum Inflammatory Markers
Decreases in inflammatory markers were significant in subjects with above average clinical response to periodontal therapy after correction for possible confounders, and may add to the systemic inflammatory burden of affected individuals. Expand
Functional Gene Polymorphisms in Aggressive and Chronic Periodontitis
There is strong evidence that genetic as well as environmental factors affect the development of periodontitis, and some suggestion that aggressive and chronic forms of the disease share the sameExpand
Consensus Report: Aggressive Periodontitis
The group agreed that there are enough specific features, which are sufficiently discriminating, to allow for the subclassification of Aggressive Periodontitis into localized and generalized forms. Expand
Short-term Effects of Intensive Periodontal Therapy on Serum Inflammatory Markers and Cholesterol
Analysis of data indicates that periodontitis causes moderate systemic inflammation in systemically healthy subjects, and a significant interaction between cigarette smoking and treatment regimen was found. Expand
