Systemic Probiotics in the Periodontal Treatment

The association of scaling and root planing (SRP) with systemic metronidazole (MTZ) and amoxicillin (AMX) has been advocated as one of the most promising therapeutic protocol for the treatment of advanced periodontitis, since the early 2000's. More recently, probiotics has also been suggested as a promising adjunctive treatment for periodontitis ...


Antibiotic and Probiotic Therapies in the Adjuvant Treatment of the Chronic Periodontitis.

Currently, with the increase of bacterial resistance to antibiotics associated with its side effects, it is necessary to find other adjuncts to combat the disease that are an alternative to the use of antibiotics. The use of probiotics has been proposed in the literature as an adjunct therapy for the ...

Phase N/A

The Effectiveness of an Oral Health Education Programme of Adolescents in Hong Kong

Baseline survey and dental examination The baseline survey will collect information on participants' background characteristics (e.g., socio-demographics), Social Cognitive Theory (SCT)-related variables (perceived susceptibility, perceived severity, perceived benefits, perceived barriers, self-efficacy), Health Belief Model (HBM)-related variables (reciprocal determinism, behavioral capability, outcome expectations), and oral health behaviors. Validated scales have been ...

The Immune Response After Periodontal Treatment

Effective root surface debridement (RSD) is essential for successful periodontal treatment. Myriad studies demonstrate that RSD may be carried out using hand or ulstrasonic instruments with equal efficacy. Locally, effective debridement results in reduced inflammation in the gingival tissues, ultimately preserving the dentition. Systemically, RSD results in an immediate inflammatory ...

Effect of Non-surgical Periodontal Treatment on Oxidative Stress and Antioxidant Status in OSAS

There is evidence supporting that OSAS is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases such as hypertension, congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction, cardiac-arrhythmia, and stroke.Gender, age, smoking, obesity and diabetes, which are risk factors for periodontitis,It is also common in OSAS at the same time.In addition to common ...

Phase N/A

In Vivo Assessment of Endodontics Procedures

Infected root canal treatments will be performed in two sessions with a TF Adaptive system (Protocol recommended by manufacturer (Group Control) vs. Protocol based on the initial apical file). The root canals will be completed after 14 days. Patients will record postoperative pain during the follow-up period (7 days) using ...

PeRiodontal Treatment to Eliminate Minority InEquality and Rural Disparities in Stroke

Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death and the leading cause of long-term adult disability in the United States. Stroke remains more common in North and South Carolina, part of the "buckle" of the stroke belt, and disproportionately impacts African Americans. The reasons for this racial disparity are poorly ...


Novel PAradigm to Improve Inflammatory Burden in ESRD (rePAIR): A Pilot and Feasibility Randomized Controlled Trial

The goal of this project is to assess repeated and ongoing oral care and the way it may affect inflammation and quality of life in hemodialysis patients. Two treatment groups will be compared: 1) ongoing and repeated gum disease therapy including deep tooth cleaning followed by multiple appointments of maintenance ...

Phase N/A

FE in Anterior Teeth

Foraminal enlargement (FE) is an intentional procedure that enlarges the cement canal. However, some RCTs indicate that enlarging the FE causes postoperative pain, flare-up, and destroy the apical constriction, whilst some RCTs pointed out there is no difference in terms of pain when a FE has been performed in maxillary ...

Phase N/A

Adjunctive Steps for Disinfection of Teeth With Primary Endodontic Infections

The success of endodontic treatment in teeth with necrotic pulp and apical periodontitis depends on the reduction of viable microorganisms of root canals by endodontic disinfection procedures. This study aims to evaluate by molecular methods the effect of different disinfection procedures on reduction, diversity and microbial metabolic activity. Patients with ...
