  • Non-surgical and surgical periodontal therapy was performed, and the patient was placed on a regular periodontal maintenance schedule. Healing following initial periodontal therapy and osseous periodontal surgery occurred without complications.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Gingival Recession
  • At and before the age of 40 years, the majority of ILA was found in buccal surfaces in the form of gingival recession.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Oral Health Impact Profile questionnaires (OHIP-14) were distributed after a clinical examination that measured the following periodontal parameters: tooth loss, bleeding on probing (BoP), probing depth (PD), gingival recession (REC) and clinical attachment[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Gingival recession (GR), probing depth (PD), and clinical attachment level (CAL) were also measured. RESULTS: The results showed higher levels of PD and CAL in the SvP group compared with the SP group (P .05).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Venous blood was withdrawn for obtaining serum samples from the subjects. Hemoglobin A1c (HbAlc) levels were measured from the automated chromatography. Using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay kit, TNF-a, IL-4, and IL-6 were measured.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Significantly decreased level of COX-2 expression for groups C and D was found after treatment, while lowest average expression was found in the group that had the 10 laser treatments supplemental to SRP (0,035 0,014).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • However, these treatments proved unsuccessful and the patient often changed dentists seeking better treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • These results suggest that comprehensive periodontal treatment in combination with treatment for diabetes mellitus can exert a positive influence on blood glucose levels and periodontal condition in diabetic patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract The aim of this systematic review was to investigate whether antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (aPDT) as either a primary mode of treatment or an adjunct to non-surgical treatment was more effective than scaling and root planing (SRP) alone[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • No consistent evidence supports the efficacy of laser treatment as an adjunct to non-surgical periodontal treatment in adults with chronic periodontitis. More randomized controlled clinical trials are needed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • By postponing extraction, the authors were in a better position to determine the prognosis of the remaining teeth after the infection was under control.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • However, bone resorption was observed in the distal aspect of #37, making the prognosis poor. This indicates the need to continuously monitor risk factors, including inflammation and traumatic occlusion, during SPT.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
