Periodontal disease is a widespread condition ranging from simple gingival inflammation to severe periodontal breakdown. Early detection and diagnosis are key elements in the prevention of this oral pathology. Diagnostic aids available to dentists, such as the Periodontal Screening and Recording or PSR Index, accelerate the screening of periodontal(More)
The goal of this article is to outline the analytical perspectives of the concept of social capital regarding health and health management. Social capital, as defined in terms of social networks and resources, has a positive impact on a number of areas, notably the health, well-being, and social and economic development of communities. It is also a useful(More)
Wearing removable dental prosthesis causes an alteration in the oral microflora. For certain individuals, this new environment is responsible for the development of a particular condition: prosthetic stomatitis. This article reviews the pertinent literature regarding the main predisposing factors causing the disease. It targets the different risk groups and(More)
The purpose of this study was to test the effect of high voltage stimulation (HVS) on edema reduction in the rat hindpaw. The animals were divided into a control group (n = 20) and a treated group (n = 20). The right hindpaw volume was measured, and then the animal's paw was traumatized. The animals in the treated group were treated with HVS at 24, 48, and(More)
The retrocuspid papilla (RCP) is a soft well circumscribed nodule located lingually to the mandibular cuspid on the gingival tissue surface. The RCP is observed more frequently in young children and regresses or disappears with age. Little information is available in the literature on this structure. The prevalence of the RCP is discussed as it relates to(More)
Stimulation on exposed dentine at the enamo-dentinal junction is often painful and uncomfortable for the affected patient. Two hundred and forty-four subjects suffering from dentinal sensitivity, aged from 18 to 48 years old, were treated with two types of desensitizing agent. In this study, we used sodium fluoride (Duraflor) and calcium hydroxide (Dycal(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate if the presence of supragingival plaque can influence measurements of gingival crevicular fluid flow (CFF) taken with the Periotron 6000 unit. Sixty-seven experimental sites and 67 contralateral control sites were randomly chosen. Crevicular fluid was collected on a filter paper strip for 15 seconds and the CFF was(More)
AIMS Six Canadian dental schools investigated the ability of a thermosetting gel containing 25 mg/g prilocaine and 25 mg/g lidocaine as active agents to produce analgesia in periodontal pockets utilizing a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study consisted of 130 patients, each of whom received the active or(More)
Nineteen healthy subjects participated in this study to determine the effectiveness of high voltage galvanic (HVG) stimulation in producing contractile force of the quadriceps femoris muscles. Each subject was asked to perform a maximal voluntary isometric contraction (MVC) followed by HVG stimulation. During each of the three testing sessions, the subject(More)
