TEN PATIENTS WHO REQUIRED two or more anterior teeth extractions were utilized in this study. Extraction procedures were carried out with a full thickness surgical flap approach. After flap reflection, teeth were removed with a minimum of trauma to the surrounding bone. Following extraction silicone-based impression techniques were used to produce a model(More)
This 6-month randomized controlled clinical study primarily aimed to compare the results achieved by the use of a platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) membrane or connective tissue graft (CTG) in the treatment of gingival recession and to evaluate the clinical impact of PRF on early wound healing and subjective patient discomfort. Use of a PRF membrane in gingival(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical effectiveness of a bioabsorbable membrane made of glycolide and lactide polymers in preserving alveolar ridges following tooth extraction using a surgical technique based on the principles of guided bone regeneration. Sixteen patients requiring extractions of 2 anterior teeth or bicuspids participated(More)
BACKGROUND Preservation of the alveolar process after tooth extraction is desirable because it facilitates placement of endosseous implants and minimizes adverse esthetic results associated with fixed partial dentures. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical effectiveness of bioactive glass used as a graft material combined with calcium(More)
BACKGROUND It has been shown that clinical improvement of intrabony periodontal defects can be achieved with the use of enamel matrix proteins (EMPs) or by grafting with bovine porous bone mineral (BPBM). There is no report on the potential synergistic effect of EMPs and BPBM in periodontal regenerative therapy. The purpose of this study was to compare the(More)
AIM The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical effectiveness of a bovine porous bone mineral used in combination with a porcine derived collagen membrane as a barrier in promoting periodontal regeneration in intrabony defects in humans. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study employed a split-mouth design. 22 paired intrabony defects were treated and(More)
BACKGROUND A combination of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), bovine porous bone mineral (BPBM) and guided tissue regeneration (GTR) has been shown to be effective in promoting clinical signs of periodontal regeneration in intrabony defects. As an initial attempt to clarify the role played by each of the three treatment components, this study was performed to(More)
OBJECTIVE A combination of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), bovine porous bone mineral (BPBM) and guided tissue regeneration (GTR) has been shown to be effective as regenerative treatment for intrabony periodontal defects. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of PRP, BPBM and GTR used in combination as regenerative treatment for grade II(More)
BACKGROUND Enamel matrix derivative (EMD) and autologous fibrinogen/fibronectin system (AFFS) are agents that have been shown to be effective in periodontal regeneration. Their use in combination with graft materials, however, has not been extensively examined. The purpose of this study was to compare the clinical effectiveness of bovine porous bone mineral(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic infections, such as periodontitis, have been associated with an increased risk for atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease. The aim of this study was to investigate biopsy samples of coronary and internal mammary arteries for the presence of putative pathogenic bacteria (Porphyromonas gingivalis, Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans,(More)
