BACKGROUND When the mucoperiosteal flap is elevated, the gingivo-periosteal vascular plexus and periodontal ligament (PDL) vascular plexus sever their connection with the circulatory tracts that pass through alveolar bone. We studied the effect exerted on the PDL vascular plexus during restoration of the circulatory tract. METHODS We performed(More)
BACKGROUND An increase in blood flow from the periosteum after mucoperiosteal flap surgery is essential for healing and angiogenesis and repair may work in close cooperation to facilitate this process. To investigate the role of the periosteal vascular plexus in the healing process, we used 3-dimensional (3-D) and ultrastructural monitoring of the(More)
The purpose of this study was to perform a three-dimensional observation, via microvascular corrosion casts, of the microcirculation system during deposition of cementum after flap surgery and to investigate the permeable structure of the vascular endothelium. Two stages of wound healing after flap surgery were confirmed based on successive vascular(More)
Periodontal disease is assessed and its progression is determined via observations on a site-by-site basis. Periodontal data are complex and structured in multiple levels; thus, applying a summary statistical approach (i.e., the mean) for site-level evaluations results in loss of information. Previous studies have shown the availability of mixed effects(More)
BACKGROUND When surgical stress reaches the periosteum, bone resorption and formation that occur as a periosteal response are closely related to angiogenesis and hemodynamics. Thus, we investigated bone remodeling in the healing process after mucoperiosteal flap surgery, focusing our attention on the microcirculation. METHODS Mucoperiosteal flap surgery(More)
