Statins are medications administered orally and are widely used for lowering the blood cholesterol level. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of orally administered statins on microorganisms infecting oral and perioral tissues. We performed a systematic review of published studies of the in vitro antimicrobial effects of statins on...
Article
Implant surfaces are continuously being improved to achieve faster osseointegration and a stronger bone to implant interface. This review will present the various implant surfaces, the parameters for implant surface characterization, and the corresponding in-vitro human cell-based studies determining the strength and quality of the bone-implant con...
Article
Objectives: The objective of this systematic review was to perform a comprehensive overview of systematic reviews and meta-analyses of surgical and patient factors affecting marginal bone loss around osseointegrated dental implants in humans. Material and methods: Electronic databases were searched for systematic reviews and meta-analyses publis...
Article
Objectives: The objective of this systemic review was to perform a comprehensive overview of systematic reviews and meta-analyses of the maxillary sinus augmentation procedure for implant rehabilitation in humans. The following were evaluated in this overview: (1) anatomic variables affecting sinus augmentation, (2) histomorphometric analysis of t...
Article
The objective of this systematic review was to perform a comprehensive overview of systematic reviews and meta-analyses pertaining to peri-implantitis in humans, including the prevalence and incidence, the diagnostic findings, the microbial findings, the effects of systemic diseases, and the treatment of peri-implantitis. Electronic databases were...
Article
Oral antiseptic mouthwashes have been widely used for their antibacterial activity. As a result of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, the antiviral properties of these oral antiseptics have been aggressively studied. To demonstrate the direct antiviral activity of mouthwashes against SARS-CoV-2, this review will focus on the in vitro virucidal effects of the...

(1) Background: This systematic review aimed to evaluate the effects of laser therapy on radiographic bone level (RBL) changes in peri-implantitis defects. (2) Methods: A literature search with defined inclusion criteria was performed. PubMed, Web of Science, Cochrane Library, and Google Scholar were searched through September 2020. The evaluated p...
Article
Full-text available
Peri-implantitis can lead to implant failure. Strategies to reduce risks and treat peri-implantitis can manage implant failure and restore function. These strategies can be derived from information on peri-implantitis progression in patients, including prevalence, diagnostic and microbial findings, the impact of systemic diseases, and peri-implanti...
Article
Full-text available
The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and its virulent variants causing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) COVID-19 has spread rapidly worldwide, and is highly contagious. A comprehensive search was conducted for the most current published information about SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19, and oral health. Clinical studies, case re...
Article
Objectives: Tooth-to-implant-connected prostheses have been described as a possible treatment option for patients with long-span edentulous situations that were not conducive for placement of an adequate number of supporting implants. In this comprehensive overview of systematic reviews, the incidence of complications and the long-term survival ra...
Article
Full-text available
Maxillary sinus pneumatization following dental tooth extractions and maxillary alveolar bone resorption frequently leaves inadequate bone levels for implant placement. The objectives of this systematic review are to evaluate the effects of bone marrow aspirate concentrates (BMACs) used in maxillary sinus augmentation for implant site development....
Article
Full-text available
Lasers are increasingly being used in the treatment of periodontal disease. When utilizing lasers to treat periodontal disease, a clinician should clearly understand the treatment outcomes of the lasers being used. The objective of this systematic review was to evaluate the histological outcomes of laser-assisted treatment of periodontitis. Electro...
Article
Full-text available
Aim: The aim of this systematic review is to provide a comprehensive overview of systematic reviews and metaanalyses on the intra-oral applications of platelet concentrates. The intra-oral applications of platelet concentrate were evaluated in the following areas: sinus augmentation, ridge preservation, implant therapy, periodontal treatment, endod...

The purposes of the study are to study the implant survival of the wide-diameter implant and to analyze if the length, the implant surface, or the placement location has any effect on its survival. Electronic databases were searched from inception to Dec 2014. Studies included in the review had implants placed in areas of adequate bone width and ha...
Article
Herpesvirus genomic sequences can be detected in gingival crevicular fluid of adult periodontitis lesions. Herpesviruses are immunosuppressive and may facilitate establishment of subgingival pathogens. Electron microscopic studies have identified nuclear and cytoplasmic virus-like inclusions in gingival inflammatory cells from localized juvenile pe...

Article
Microbiological tests in periodontics can be of great help in determining the characteristics of a pathogenic infection, prescribing the optimal antibiotic regimen, and monitoring the effectiveness of treatment. However, they are not without potential pitfalls. Current microbiological tests vary considerably in sensitivity and specificity. A false-...
