Development of the gingival sulcus at the time of tooth eruption and the influence of genetic factors.
Tooth eruption is characterized by a concert of mechanisms that result in the emergence of teeth in the oral cavity. Genetic variants seem to regulate this process and the formation of a gingival sulcus around the teeth. ...
Left ventricular geometry and periodontitis in patients with the metabolic syndrome.
OBJECTIVE: The presence of periodontal disease (PD) in subjects affected by the metabolic syndrome (MetS) may affect their risk of developing cardiovascular disease. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to investigate ...
Association between circulating levels of heat-shock protein 27 and aggressive periodontitis.
Heat-shock protein (Hsp) 27 is a major intracellular molecular chaperone and controller of intracellular responses to inflammatory signals. In the extracellular space, recombinant Hsp27 has been described to exert ...
Disease severity, debridement approach and timing of drug modify outcomes of adjunctive azithromycin in non-surgical management of chronic periodontitis: a multivariate meta-analysis.
(BioMed Central, 2019-04-27)
BACKGROUND: Past meta-analyses have shown adjunctive systemic Azithromycin (AZI) to provide minor clinical benefits in scaling and root surface debridement (S/RSD). However, these have not considered the covariance of key ...
Differences in the subgingival microbial population of chronic periodontitis in subjects with and without type 2 diabetes mellitus-a systematic review.
OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this systematic review was to evaluate the available evidence in the literature in regard to the subgingival microbial population of chronic periodontitis in subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus ...
Periodontitis and mechanisms of cardiometabolic risk: Novel insights and future perspectives.
Periodontitis is an infectious and inflammatory disease of the tooth-supporting tissues caused by the accumulation of subgingival plaque and the action of specific periodontopathogenic bacteria. Periodontitis has been ...
