OBJECTIVE To evaluate the influence of an app-based approach in a protocol for domestic oral hygiene maintenance in a group of adolescent patients wearing fixed multibracket appliances. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighty adolescent patients scheduled to start an orthodontic multibracket treatment were randomly divided into two groups of 40. Plaque index (PI),(More)
PURPOSE The design of an implant plays a fundamental role in the osseointegration process, particularly in low-density bone. It has been postulated that design features that maximize the surface area available for contact may improve mechanical anchorage and primary stability in cancellous bone. Two different implant profiles were compared to evaluate the(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose was to show the capacity of zinc oxide and eugenol to affect the growth of Aspergillus fumigatus. STUDY DESIGN An in vitro microbiological analysis was conducted on samples from infected maxillary sinuses and on 3 different endodontic sealers. RESULTS Tests showed that zinc oxide in solution favors the growth of Aspergillus(More)
Radiotherapy alone or in combination with chemotherapy and/or surgery is the typical treatment for head and neck cancer patients. Acute side effects (such as oral mucositis, dermatitis, salivary changes, taste alterations, etc.), and late toxicities in particular (such as osteo-radionecrosis, hypo-salivation and xerostomia, trismus, radiation caries etc.),(More)
We consider a non-standard design for a fixed dental implant, incorporating a soft layer which simulates the presence of the periodontal ligament (PDL). Instead of being aimed at causing an a priori defined stress/strain field within the surrounding bone, upon loading, such a design simply tries to better reproduce the natural tooth-PDL configuration. To do(More)
The extra-cellular matrix of the gingival tissue plays an important role in the homeostasis of dental implants. In this work we have studied immunohistochemically the distribution of collagen I-III-IV-V, tenascin, metalloproteinases (MMP) 1-3-8-13 and TIMP-1 in three groups of patients: (1) subjects with natural teeth (healthy periodontal tissue), (2)(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to review the literature and evaluate the failure rates and factors that affect the stability and success of temporary anchorage devices (TADs) used as orthodontic anchorage. METHODS Data were collected from electronic databases: MEDLINE database, Scopus, and Web of Knowledge. Four combinations of term were used as(More)
It has been suggested that heat-shock proteins (HSPs) might be involved in autoimmune disease mechanisms in humans, considering the high degree of sequence homology between bacterial and human HSPs. Several authors have postulated that HSPs might be involved in periodontal disease processes, but not specifically in peri-implantitis. Consequently, using(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate microtensile bond strength (μTBS) to dentine, interfacial nanoleakage expression, and stability after ageing, of two-step vs. one-step self-etch adhesives. Human molars were cut to expose middle/deep dentine, assigned to groups (n = 15), and treated with the following bonding systems: (i) Optibond XTR (a two-step(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Surgical extraction of an impacted third molar is generally followed by acute post-operative pain that has been shown to be primarily inflammatory. Thus, use of NSAIDs in this context is appropriate and has been shown to be effective. Several drugs are employed for this purpose, but no information exists on the reasons why(More)
