AIM The aim was to review the significance of the platelet derived growth factor (PGDF) in periodontal tissue regeneration. METHODS AND RESULTS Databases were searched using the following terms in different combinations: "growth factors", "guided bone regeneration", "guided tissue regeneration", "periodontal", "platelet rich plasma" and "platelet derived(More)
UNLABELLED Leukemia is a malignancy of the bone marrow. Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common pediatric malignancy and accounts for nearly 75% of all newly diagnosed leukemias and 25% of all malignancies in childhood. The aim of the present study was to review the oral health status in children with ALL. Databases were explored using various(More)
BACKGROUND Tooth extraction is associated with dimensional changes in the alveolar ridge. The aim was to examine the effect of single versus contiguous teeth extractions on the alveolar ridge remodeling. MATERIAL AND METHODS Five female beagle dogs were randomly divided into three groups on the basis of location (anterior or posterior) and number of teeth(More)
BACKGROUND Periodontitis may occur in patients with and without type 2 diabetes (T2D). It may be hypothesized that the gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) cytokine profile in patients with periodontitis with poorly controlled T2D may differ from the GCF cytokine profile in medically healthy individuals with periodontitis. The aim was to review the cytokine(More)
INTRODUCTION : Prediabetes and habitual cigarette smoking are significant risk factors contributing to periodontal disease. The aim was to assess the clinical and radiological markers of periodontal disease in habitual cigarette smokers and nonsmokers with and without prediabetes. METHODS Sixty-eight individuals with prediabetes (test group; 34 smokers(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim was to compare the self-perceived oral health, periodontal inflammatory conditions and socioeconomic status (SES) in patients with and without prediabetes. METHODS Thirty-nine individuals [19 patients with prediabetes (test group) and 20 control individuals (control group)], at least 20 years old were included. Plaque index, bleeding(More)
Severe periodontal inflammation with generalized dental plaque accumulation, spontaneous and severe gingival bleeding, fungal infection, and interdental papillae necrosis are presented in a patient infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Bite-wing radiographs revealed a generalized horizontal alveolar bone loss of 7-8 millimetres in both arches.(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies assessed bone remodeling after a single tooth extraction; however, the effect of multiple contiguous teeth extractions around immediate implant remains unknown. The aim of this microcomputed tomographic investigation is to analyze the alveolar bone remodeling around immediate implants placed in accordance with the extraction(More)
Periodontal regenerative techniques have been proposed; however, the outcomes remain debatable. The present investigation assessed the regenerated cementum following enamel matrix derivative application in dehiscence-type defects. Buccal osseous dehiscences were surgically created on the maxillary cuspid, and the second and fourth premolars in five female(More)
To our knowledge from indexed literature, the role of laminins in the expression of osteogenic biomarkers and osseointegration enhancement has not been systematically reviewed. The aim of the present systematic review was to assess the role of laminin coatings on implant surfaces in promoting osseointegration. To address the focused question, "Do laminin(More)
