Bacterial adhesion on commercially pure titanium and zirconium oxide disks: an in vivo human study.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that zirconium oxide may be a suitable material for manufacturing implant abutments with a low colonization potential and the disk surface covered by bacteria on test specimens was significantly lower than that of control specimens.
Maxillary Sinus Augmentation With Different Biomaterials: A Comparative Histologic and Histomorphometric Study in Man
TLDR
All biomaterials examined resulted in being biocompatible and seemed to improve new bone formation in maxillary sinus lift, and the data are very encouraging because of the high number of successfully treated patients and the good quality of bone found in the retrieved specimens.
SARS-CoV-2 and Oral Manifestation: An Observational, Human Study
TLDR
An interesting result was that among the systemic conditions, hypertension was observed in 39% of patients and mostly in female patients (62.5%).
Melatonin provokes cell death in human B‐lymphoma cells by mitochondrial‐dependent apoptotic pathway activation
TLDR
Melatonin may play a role as potential therapeutic drug in specific lymphoproliferative diseases, as well as elucidate the mechanism of action of melatonin.
Proteome of Human Stem Cells from Periodontal Ligament and Dental Pulp
TLDR
It is found that DPSCs vs PDLSCs express differentially regulated proteins that are potentially related to growth, regulation and genesis of neuronal cells, suggesting that SCs derived from oral tissue source populations may possess the potential ability of neuronal differentiation which is very consistent with their neural crest origin.
The influence of luting systems on the microtensile bond strength of dentin to indirect resin-based composite and ceramic restorations.
TLDR
Microtensile bond strength (microTBS) evaluation and fractographic analysis were used to compare four luting systems in the cementation of resin-based composite and ceramic disks to dentin and showed that the bond strengths were significantly affected by the luting agent employed for both the RBC and ceramic groups.
Morphological and Cytofluorimetric Analysis of Adult Mesenchymal Stem Cells Expanded Ex Vivo from Periodontal Ligament
TLDR
A population of homogeneous human mesenchymal stem cells proliferating in culture with an attached well-spread morphology derived from periodontal ligament, tissue of ectomeschymal origin, with the ability to form a specialized joint between alveolar bone and tooth is isolated and characterized.
Histologic and histomorphometric results of three bone graft substitutes after sinus augmentation in humans
TLDR
No investigated biomaterial was completely resorbed, but all the residual particles demonstrated a close bone integration to form a hybrid tissue.
