BACKGROUND The treatment of buccal gingival recessions is a common requirement due to aesthetic concern or root sensitivity. The aim of this manuscript was to systematically review the literature on coronally advanced flap (CAF) alone or in combination with tissue grafts, barrier membranes (BM), enamel matrix derivative (EMD) or other material for treating(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this Systematic Review (SR) was to assess the clinical efficacy of periodontal plastic surgery procedures in the treatment of localized gingival recessions (Rec) with or without inter-dental clinical attachment loss (iCAL). MATERIAL AND METHODS Electronic and hand searches were performed to identify randomized clinical trials (RCTs)(More)
This clinical study was designed to determine whether the thickness of the flap can influence root coverage when gingival recessions associated with traumatic toothbrushing are treated using a coronally advanced flap (CAF). Nineteen patients, aged from 25 to 57 years, with high levels of oral hygiene (full-mouth plaque scores <20%) were selected for the(More)
Within the framework of the EEC Project on the validation of tests for genomic mutations, 12 chemicals were submitted to the micronucleus assay using in vitro cultured human lymphocytes to assess their potential aneuploidogenic activity; the results will be compared with those of other in vivo and in vitro short-term genotoxicity assays developed in(More)
AIM The aim of this long-term study was to compare the clinical outcomes of coronally advanced flap (CAF) alone versus coronally advanced flap plus connective tissue graft (CAF+CTG) in the treatment of multiple gingival recessions using a split-mouth design over 5 years of follow-up. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 13 patients (mean age 31.4 years)(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this systematic review (SR) was to assess the quality of reporting randomized clinical trials (RCTs) in the field of implant dentistry, its evolution over time and the possible relations between quality items and reported outcomes. MATERIAL AND METHODS RCTs in implant dentistry were retrieved through electronic and hand searches.(More)
AIMS This case cohort study was designed to evaluate the clinical performance and the intra-operative and post-operative morbidity of the "minimally invasive surgical technique" (MIST) associated with the application of an enamel matrix derivative (EMD) in the treatment of multiple deep intra-bony defects in a single surgical procedure. MATERIAL AND(More)
BACKGROUND Dental implants are widely used to replace lost teeth. It was suggested that surgical manipulation/augmentation of peri-implant soft tissue may be beneficial to increase the width/thickness of keratinized tissue (KT) and to enhance aesthetic outcomes of implant therapy. The aim of this paper was to provide a narrative review of the literature(More)
BACKGROUND This clinical controlled study was designed to measure the tension of coronally advanced flaps (CAF) performed to treat shallow gingival recessions and to compare the recession reduction (Rec Red) achieved in a test group (flaps with tension) and in a control group (flaps without tension) 3 months after surgery. METHODS Eleven patients, aged 22(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate differences in the inflammatory profile of young (<or=40 years) systemically healthy periodontal patients comparing chronic (CP) versus aggressive periodontitis (AP) in terms of cytokines, chemokines and C-reactive protein levels. METHODS Systemically healthy subjects affected by severe CP or AP were enrolled in(More)
