Periodontal infection and preterm birth: results of a prospective study.
ABSTRACT Background Previous studies have suggested that chronic periodontal infection may be associated with preterm births. The authors conducted a prospective study to test for this association.Expand
Periodontal disease and preterm birth: results of a pilot intervention study.
BACKGROUND Previous case-control and prospective studies have shown an association between the presence of periodontitis and the risk of preterm birth (PTB). The goal of this pilot trial was toExpand
Effects of periodontal therapy on rate of preterm delivery: A randomized controlled trial
It is unclear whether treatment of maternal periodontal disease will reduce the risk of preterm delivery. The results of 4 randomized single-center trials suggested that periodontal treatment duringExpand
Periodontal infection and preterm birth: results of a prospective study.
BACKGROUND Previous studies have suggested that chronic periodontal infection may be associated with preterm births. The authors conducted a prospective study to test for this association. METHODSExpand
Using growth factors in human extraction sockets: a histologic and histomorphometric evaluation of short-term healing.
PURPOSE Ridge preservation protocols reduce crestal remodeling after tooth extraction. There is insufficient evidence on bone grafting in combination with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or recombinantExpand
Influence of surface characteristics on survival rates of mini-implants.
OBJECTIVE To compare the clinical performance and the survival rate of two mini-implant systems with different surface characteristics under immediate orthodontic loading. MATERIALS AND METHODSExpand
Current evidence regarding periodontal disease as a risk factor in preterm birth.
Preterm birth, resulting in babies born too little and too soon, is a major cause of morbidity. Evidence indicates that infections can be major risk factors in preterm birth. Case-control studiesExpand
Retrospective radiographic analysis of sinus graft and implant placement procedures from the Academy of Osseointegration Consensus Conference on Sinus Grafts.
A retrospective quantitative radiographic analysis determined the effect of graft material and smoking status on the maintenance of graft height over 3 years. Analysis of variance models with plannedExpand
A prospective clinical trial of endosseous screw-shaped implants placed at the time of tooth extraction without augmentation.
This prospective clinical trial evaluated 134 implants in 81 patients. The implants were placed at the time of tooth extraction and were not augmented with barrier membranes or graft materials. TheExpand
Periodontal manifestations of systemic diseases and developmental and acquired conditions: Consensus report of workgroup 3 of the 2017 World Workshop on the Classification of Periodontal and
BACKGROUND A variety of systemic diseases and conditions can affect the course of periodontitis or have a negative impact on the periodontal attachment apparatus. Gingival recessions are highlyExpand
