BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to investigate the impact of periodontal status on oxidant/antioxidant status in patients with chronic periodontitis (CP) who experienced familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) and their response to non-surgical periodontal therapy. METHODS Data were obtained from 13 patients with FMF with generalized CP (FMF-CP), 15(More)
OBJECTIVES Laser Doppler flowmetry (LDF) is a non-invasive technique used for various reasons in medicine and dentistry. There are many reports of vascular and microcirculatory changes in patients with diabetes mellitus. The aim of the study was to assess the gingival blood flow (GBF) measurements in patients with chronic periodontitis (Group 1), patients(More)
AIM A case is reported in which sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) was inadvertently injected into the palatal mucosa instead of local anaesthetic solution. SUMMARY An adult male was referred to the University clinic 15 days after an inadvertent NaOCl injection into the palatal mucosa. Soft tissue necrosis was evident, without obvious bony involvement. Tissues(More)
This study aimed to examine the IL-1β, IL-1ra, and IL-10 cytokine levels in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) and serum of familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) and chronic periodontitis (CP) patients, and their response to nonsurgical periodontal therapy. A total of 50 patients, 15 FMF patients with generalized chronic periodontitis (FMF-CP), 15 systemically(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the relationship of orthodontic malocclusion with periodontal status, dental caries, and sociodemographic status. Our study population consisted of a sample of 836 school children (384 male and 452 female, aged 11-14 years). Four experienced orthodontists and two experienced periodontists performed the clinical(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to determine the effect of non-surgical periodontal treatment on gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) and serum oxidant-antioxidant levels in smoking and non-smoking patients with chronic periodontitis. METHODS Twenty-nine patients with chronic periodontitis (15 smokers (CP-S) and 14 non-smokers (CP-NS)) and 20 periodontally(More)
AIM Hydrogen sulphide (H2S), recently considered the third endogenous gaseous transmitter capable of modulating many physiological processes. The purpose of this study was to analyze the morphometric and histopathological changes associated with experimental periodontitis in rats in response to systemic administration of H2S METHODS: Forty-eight Wistar rats(More)
OBJECTIVES Treatment of dental discolorations with external bleaching is becoming very common in dentistry, however, possible irreversible alterations on enamel surface due to bleaching procedures is a topic of discussion. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical effects of bleaching by measuring the dental plaque accumulation on human enamel and(More)
