Background: Intramarrow penetration (IMP) is often incorporated in regenerative periodontal surgical procedures. However, the actual benefits of adding IMP to such a procedure remain undocumented. The purpose of this randomized controlled trial was to investigate the contribution of IMP to the outcomes of open-flap debridement (OFD) treatment of i...
Article
Background and objectiveA prevailing dental problem in the periodontal patient is root caries. Specifically, periodontal involvement often results in root surfaces becoming exposed and at risk for this condition. Periodontal therapy often leads to increased gingival recession as well, and the associated increased root caries risk may compromise the...

Statement of the Problem: Gingival recession (GR) is a highly prevalent dental problem that may be associated with dentin hypersensitivity and aesthetic complaint. Furthermore, GR is often complicated by dental cervical wear of substance, such as erosion, abrasion, or abfraction lesions, as well as initial or more extensive carious involvement of t...

Objectives: Primary focused question for this systematic review (SR) was: "Which is the evidence about surfaces decontamination and protection masks for SARS-Cov-2 in dental practice?". Secondary question was: "Which is the evidence about surfaces decontamination and protection masks against airborne pathogens and directly transmitted viral pathog...

Current evidence suggests that SARS‐CoV‐2, the virus that causes COVID‐19, is predominantly spread from person‐to‐person. Aim of this narrative review is to explore transmission modality of SARS‐CoV‐2 to provide appropriate advice to stakeholders, in order to support the implementation of effective public health measures and protect healthcare work...
Article
Modern dentistry is focused on patient needs, with the current trend shifting from merely restoring the loss of function to pursuing the esthetic satisfaction of patients and professional operators, as well as achieving optimal and stable results. Ideal smile esthetics depend on the balance between white and pink components, and therefore papilla r...

Effect of topical administration of Reduced CoQ10 in patients affected by plaque-induced gingivitis
Article
Gingival recession (GR) is a highly prevalent dental problem that may be associated with dentin hypersensitivity and aesthetic complaint. Furthermore, GR is often complicated by dental cervical wear of substance, such as erosion, abrasion, or abfraction lesions, as well as initial or more extensive carious involvement of the cervical area, which wo...

Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a proliferative disease of histiocyte-like cells that generally affects children; LCH onset is rare in adults; immunohistochemistry is essential to obtain the correct diagnosis, and treatment protocols are controversial. To describe two new cases of adult onset oral LCH. Case 1: a 71-year-old woman, complainin...

Objectives: Open flap debridement (OFD) has been found to induce a predictable but limited gain of clinical attachment level (CAL) and a variable reduction of probing pocket depth (PPD) in intrabony defects. Local decortication, or intramarrow penetration (IMP) has been proposed as an adjunctive approach during procedures aiming at osseous regenera...

EFFECTS OF TOPICAL APPLICATION OF CoQ10 IN PATIENTS WITH GENGIVITIS And reflections on total antioxidant capacity of GCF
Article
Full-text available
The present study is concerned with the influence of processes occurring during dialysis on the antioxidant capacity of plasma and saliva. The biological fluids were also tested for uric acid and total protein content. Before hemodialysis, plasma antioxidant status of hemodialyzed patients appears slightly higher than the corresponding status in no...
