AIM The haptoglobin-hemoglobin (Hp-Hb) complex plays a significant role in regulating immune responses and acts as a bacteriostatic agent. Haptoglobin polymorphisms result in different Hb binding affinities. This study sought to assess whether Hp 2-2 could be a genetic determinant for increasing the risk of peri-implantitis and chronic periodontitis. (More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to use intra-oral radiographs to evaluate changes in marginal bone levels around three different implant designs after 1 year. MATERIALS AND METHODS Three implant designs; two with a straight and one with a conical design, were placed adjacent to each other in the partially edentulous areas of 25 patients. The patients(More)
OBJECTIVE RANK/OPG/RANKL pathway plays a significant role in osteoclastogenesis, osteoclast activation, and regulation of bone resorption. The aim of this study was to investigate the association of RANKL gene polymorphisms (rs9533156 and rs2277438) with chronic periodontitis and peri-implantitis in an Iranian population. DESIGN 77 patients with chronic(More)
Chronic periodontitis (CP) and peri-implantitis (PI) are multifactorial diseases of tooth and implant supporting apparatus. Bacterial invasion and consequent host immune response seem to play a role in relevant pathogenesis. The structural differences between tooth and implant pose preferential biofilm colonization. This study was aimed to compare the(More)
Among the factors that may impede success in dental treatments, gingival biotype is the greatest cause of concern, particularly affecting the outcomes of periodontal therapy, root coverage procedures, and implant placement. Different tissue biotypes respond differently to inflammation and to surgical and restorative treatment; consequently, it is crucial to(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aimed to assess and compare the levels of interleukin-1beta (IL-1β) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) in the crevicular fluid around healthy implants, implants with peri-implantitis, and healthy teeth. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study evaluated 16 dental implants in 8 patients (4 males and 4 females). These patients had at least one healthy(More)
INTRODUCTION Low level laser therapy (LLLT) also known as photobiomodulation, is a treatment that uses low-level lasers or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to change cellular function and is a clinically well accepted tool in regenerative medicine and dentistry. Considering the variety of laser, exposure, cells and study types, the exact effects of low level(More)
BACKGROUND One of the most recommended methods of systemic antibiotic administration in periodontics is the combination of amoxicillin and metronidazole, which has great inhibitory effect on periodontal pathogens. The aim of this study is to determine the local concentrations of these drugs in gingiva and compare its distribution in healthy and inflamed(More)
Periodontal disease (PD) and peri-implantitis (PI) are characterized by an immune response leading to destructive inflammation. The prominent impact of genetic factors on periodontitis has been previously evaluated and IL-17 has found to play a critical role in this process. This cytokine has a controversial behavior. This study aimed at finding out whether(More)
Gene polymorphism of cytokines influencing their function has been known as a contributing factor in the pathogenesis of inflammatory diseases of the tooth and implant supporting tissues. The aim of this study was to investigate the association of IL-17R gene polymorphism (rs879576) with chronic periodontitis and periimplantitis in an Iranian population. 73(More)
