Local application of tetracycline solution with a microbrush: An alternative treatment for persistent periodontitis
(Quintessence International, 2009-01-01) [Artigo]
Objective: Topical antibiotics may overcome shortcomings of mechanical therapy for localized persistent periodontitis. This double-center, single-blind, randomized controlled study aimed to evaluate the microbiologic profile ...
Treatment of experimental periodontal disease with antimicrobial photodynamic therapy in nicotine-modified rats
(Journal of Clinical Periodontology, 2011-12-01) [Artigo]
Background: The aim of this study was to compare antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (aPDT) as an adjunctive treatment to scaling and root planing (SRP) for induced periodontitis in nicotine-modified rats.Material & Methods: ...
Clinical and microbiological effects of photodynamic therapy associated with nonsurgical periodontal treatment. A 6-month follow-up
(Lasers in Medical Science, 2012-07-01) [Artigo]
Experimental studies in animals and in vitro have shown the usefulness of photodynamic therapy (PDT) as an adjunct to periodontal treatment. The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term clinical and microbiological ...
Periapical tissue reactions to calcium hydroxide and MTA after external root resorption as a sequela of delayed tooth replantation
(Dental Traumatology, 2012-08-01) [Artigo]
Clinical experience has shown that most avulsed teeth are replanted after a long extra-alveolar time and dry or inadequate wet storage, causing necrosis of periodontal ligament cells. This condition invariably leads to ...
Histometric Analysis of Bone Repair in Bone-Implant Interface Using a Polylactic/Polyglycolic Acid Copolymer Associated With Implants in Rabbit Tibia
(Journal of Oral Implantology, 2012-09-01) [Artigo]
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association of the combination of polylactic/polyglycolic acid around implants installed with and without primary stability through the histometric analysis of bone-implant ...
The influence of bone quality on the biomechanical behavior of full-arch implant-supported fixed prostheses
(Materials Science & Engineering C-materials For Biological Applications, 2014-04-01) [Artigo]
We evaluated the influence of bone tissue type on stress distribution in full-arch implant-supported fixed prostheses using a three-dimensional finite element analysis. Stresses in cortical and trabecular bones were also ...
