Differential expression of salivary glycoproteins in aggressive and chronic periodontitis.
The aim of this study was to compare the pattern of secretion and the expression of mucin glycoprotein-2 (MG2) and lactoferrin in individuals with or without periodontitis. Five individuals with aggressive periodontitis (APG), 5 with generalized chronic periodontitis...
Effectiveness of different carbamide peroxide concentrations used for tooth bleaching: an in vitro study.
This in vitro study evaluated the effectiveness of three carbamide peroxide concentrations used for tooth bleaching treatments. Sixty bovine dental slabs (6x6x3 mm) were obtained, sequentially polished, submitted to artificial staining (baseline) and randomized into f...
Influence of ferrule preparation with or without glass fiber post on fracture resistance of endodontically treated teeth.
Comparison of static friction with self-ligating, modified slot design and conventional brackets.
To compare the static frictional forces generated at the bracket/wire interface of stainless steel brackets with different geometries and angulations, combined with orthodontic wires of different diameters. The frictional forces were evaluated with three different types of metal brackets: a passive...
Peel bond strength of resilient liner modified by the addition of antimicrobial agents to denture base acrylic resin.
In order to prolong the clinical longevity of resilient denture relining materials and reduce plaque accumulation, incorporation of antimicrobial agents into these materials has been proposed. However, this addition may affect their properties. This study evaluated the effect of the addition of anti...
Prevalence of enamel defects and associated risk factors in both dentitions in preterm and full term born children.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of enamel defects and their risk factors on primary and permanent dentitions of prematurely born children and full-term born children born at Regional Hospital of Asa Sul, Brasília, DF, Brazil. Eighty 5-10-year-old children of both genders were ex...
Morphometric study of the root anatomy in furcation area of mandibular first molars.
Furcation involvement in periodontal disease has been a challenge for the dentist. The aim of this study was to investigate root dimensions in the furcation area of 233 mandibular first molars. Digital photomicrographs were used to obtain the following measurements on the buccal and lingual surfaces...
Non-inflammatory destructive periodontal disease: a clinical, microbiological, immunological and genetic investigation.
Periodontitis comprises a group of multifactorial diseases in which periodontopathogens accumulate in dental plaque and trigger host chronic inflammatory and immune responses against periodontal structures, which are determinant to the disease outcome. Although unusual cases of non-inflammatory dest...
Grading the quality of evidence and strength of recommendations: the GRADE approach to improving dental clinical guidelines.
Time- and concentration-dependent cytotoxicity of antibiotics used in endodontic therapy.
I - control; Group II - ciprofloxacin hydrochloride; Group III - clyndamicin hydrochloride; and Group IV - metronidazole. Each drug was used at concentrations of 5, 50, 150, and 300 mg/L for 24, 48, 72, and 96 h. Cytotoxicity was evaluated by the MTT assay [3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenylt...
