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...
The effectiveness of chemical denture cleansers and ultrasonic device in biofilm removal from complete dentures.
Adequate denture hygiene can prevent and treat infection in edentulous patients. They are usually elderly and have difficulty for brushing their teeth. This study evaluated the efficacy of complete denture biofilm removal using chemical (alkaline peroxide-effervescent tablets), mechanical (ultrasoni...
Comparison among four commonly used demineralizing agents for root conditioning: a scanning electron microscopy.
Dental roots that have been exposed to the oral cavity and periodontal pocket environment present superficial changes, which can prevent connective tissue reattachment. Demineralizing agents have been used as an adjunct to the periodontal treatment aiming at restoring the biocompatibility of roots.
