Calcium-vitamin D & Periodontal Therapy for Improving Metabolic and Inflammatory Profile Among Pregnant Women

The improvement of maternal and child health remains a key issue in global health. Production and improved accessibility of healthy and nutrient-rich milk-based products could potentially tackle health and nutrition inequalities in low-income countries. This study will assess the acceptability of a multi-component intervention, including provision of calcium/vitamin-D fortified milk ...

Phase N/A

PERIODONTITIS AND VASCULAR DYSFUNCTION

The investigators wish to assess whether intensive periodontal therapy will reduce the burden of chronic periodontal disease and will cause regression or prevent progression of atherosclerosis assessed by a surrogate endpoint (carotid intimamedia thickness) at 24 months compared to control periodontal therapy.

Phase N/A

Efficacy and Safety of a Commercially Available Injectable Hyaluronic Acid Dental Filler for Periodontal Pockets

This is a controlled, randomized, single-blinded (independent Blinded Evaluator), multicenter, prospective clinical study. Each subject will receive the standard periodontal treatment procedure on all teeth that need to be treated. The usual cares are scaling and root planing (SRP), and chlorhexidine, and instructions to oral hygiene (proper brushing techniques twice ...

Phase

Randomized Controlled Trial of a Novel Laser-aided Orthodontic-periodontal Treatment Strategy

On the basis of the investigators' pilot study results, 35 patients with chronic periodontitis will be recruited and initially treated for inflammation. Using a randomized split-mouth design,the teeth in experimental (laser) group will receive LLLT while the teeth in the control (placebo) group will receive no laser treatment. The effects ...

Phase N/A

Safety and Efficacy of the Apexum Ablator

Periapical lesions consist of inflammatory tissue replacing the bone surrounding the root-tip (apex) and are caused by bacteria present in an infected root canal (Metzger 2000). Endodontic (root canal) treatment is performed to eliminate these bacteria from the root canal and prevent its recontamination. The periapical lesion is expected to ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Actonel on Periodontal Health of Postmenopausal Women

Women who use Actonel for osteopenia will show beneficial attachment loss, alveolar bone height and morphology as compared to those who do not when oral hygiene is corrected for.

Phase

Chromogranin-A-Derived Peptides and Periodontitis in Diabetic Patients

This disease has a significant impact of the quality of life as the teeth become progressively mobile and may fall out spontaneously if no treatment is provided. Periodontal ...

Phase N/A

The Relation Between Periodontal Disease and Metabolic Syndrome

Periodontal disease is associated with the components of Metabolic syndrome, such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension and hyperlipidemia. Therefore, strong relation with periodontal disease and metabolic syndrome is suggested. the overall goal of this study is to define the relation between periodontal disease and metabolic syndrome, including atherosclerosis.

Phase N/A

Norplant and Irregular Bleeding/Spotting

A high percentage of women using progestin-only contraception experience breakthrough bleeding (BTB) and spotting that causes impaired lifestyle and results in decreased compliance with this contraceptive method. There is a need for an effective, low-cost, easily adapted treatment to reduce the bleeding and spotting in progestin-only contraceptives. The molecular environment ...
