AIM The aim was to assess the potential trends in Periodontology and Periodontics in Europe that might be anticipated by the year 2025, using the Delphi method. MATERIAL AND METHODS The expert opinion of 120 experts was sought through the use of an open-ended questionnaire, developed by an advisory group, containing 40 questions concerning the various(More)
BACKGROUND The aims of this study are to estimate the profile of bone loss biomarkers in peri-implant tissues and to identify potential prognostic biomarkers of peri-implantitis. METHODS Peri-implant crevicular fluid samples collected from 164 participants (52 patients with peri-implantitis, 54 with mucositis, and 58 with healthy peri-implant tissues)(More)
AIM To investigate the levels of biomarkers associated with osteoclastogenesis in patients suffering peri-implantitis and to compare them with levels in healthy peri-implant sites and severe chronic periodontitis. MATERIAL AND METHODS Peri-implant/gingival crevicular fluid samples and clinical parameters including: bleeding on probing, modified Plaque(More)
PURPOSE To qualitatively investigate the microbiologic profile in peri-implantitis by systematically reviewing the published literature on peri-implant infection. MATERIALS AND METHODS Searches of the US National Institutes of Health free digital archives of the biomedical and life sciences journal literature (PubMed) and The Cochrane Library of the(More)
This study aims to investigate whether CD14-159 C/T and TNFα -308 A/G single nucleotide polymorphisms are associated with peri-implantitis and to evaluate their effects on bone resorption by correlating with local levels of receptor activator nuclear factor kappa-B ligand (RANKL) and osteoprotegerin (OPG). Study population included 369 Southeastern Europe(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether specific predictive profiles for patient-based risk assessment/diagnostics can be applied in different subtypes of peri-implantitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study included patients with at least two implants (one or more presenting signs of peri-implantitis). Anamnestic, clinical, and implant-related parameters were(More)
1. Tetraethylammonium (TEA) in concentrations below 0.5 mg/ml. depressed or blocked the peristaltic reflex of the guinea-pig isolated ileum: in concentrations above 0.5 mg/ml. it caused a contraction of the longitudinal muscle and restored the peristaltic reflex previously blocked by the lower concentrations.2. The peristaltic reflex, when blocked by(More)
BACKGROUND Periodontitis is considered to be a risk factor for preterm birth. Mechanisms have been proposed for this pathologic relation, but the exact pathologic pattern remains unclear. Therefore, the objective of the present study is to evaluate levels of four major labor triggers, prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-6, and tumor necrosis(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM The function of dental implants depends on their stability in bone tissue over extended period of time, i.e. on osseointegration. The process through which osseointegration is achieved depends on several factors, surgical insertion method being one of them. The aim of this study was to histopathologically compare the impact of the surgical(More)
The objective of this study is to estimate the overall prevalence of peri-implantitis (PI) and the effect of different study designs, function times, and implant surfaces on prevalence rate reported by the studies adhering to the case definition of Sanz & Chapple 2012. Following electronic and manual searches of the literature published up to February 2016,(More)
