BACKGROUND/AIMS: The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effectiveness of a regenerative procedure based on supracrestal soft tissue preservation in association with enamel matrix proteins (EMP) in the treatment of deep intrabony defects.

METHODS: The subjects included 35 consecutively treated patients, 23 females and 12 males, aged 28-61 years, 11 of whom were smokers. Patients presented with at least one intrabony defect with probing pocket depth > or = 6 mm and a ...

BACKGROUND: Specific interleukin (IL)-1 gene polymorphisms are associated with an increased susceptibility to severe periodontitis, increased inflammation, and increased likelihood of tooth loss during the maintenance phase after conventional periodontal therapy. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the impact of genotype on the maintenance of gained clinical attachment obtained after guided tissue regeneration (GTR) surgical therapy in deep intrabony defects.

METHODS: Forty deep ...

BACKGROUND: Several studies have documented the clinical efficacy of guided tissue regeneration (GTR) with non-resorbable expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) membranes and enamel matrix proteins (EMP) in the treatment of infrabony defects. The objective of this controlled clinical study was to compare the clinical outcomes of 3 surgical modalities in the treatment of deep interproximal infrabony defects.

METHODS: Ninety (90) defects in 90 healthy subjects affected by chronic ...

BACKGROUND: The aims of the present multi-center, randomized, controlled clinical trial were: 1) to compare the efficacy of the simplified papilla preservation flap with and without a barrier membrane in deep intrabony defects; 2) to evaluate the postoperative morbidity and surgical complications; and 3) to preliminarily test the impact of baseline tooth mobility on clinical outcomes.

METHODS: This parallel group, randomized, multi-center, controlled clinical trial involved 112 patients ...

BACKGROUND: Vertical releasing incisions might damage the blood supply to the flap and result in unesthetic visible white scars. The aim of the present study was to compare root coverage and esthetic outcomes of the coronally advanced flap (CAF) with and without vertical releasing incisions in the treatment of multiple gingival recessions.

METHODS: Thirty-two systemically and periodontally healthy subjects with esthetic complaints due to the exposure of Miller Class I and II multiple (at ...

AIM: The aim of this study was to compare short- and long-term root coverage and aesthetic outcomes of the coronally advanced flap (CAF) alone or in combination with a connective tissue graft (CTG) for the treatment of multiple gingival recessions.

METHODS: Fifty patients with multiple (≥2) adjacent gingival recessions (≥2 mm) in the upper jaw were enrolled. Twenty-five patients were randomly assigned to the control group (CAF), and the other 25 patients to the test group (CAF + CTG). ...

BACKGROUND: When multiple recession defects affecting adjacent teeth in esthetic areas of the mouth are present, patient-related considerations suggest the selection of surgical techniques that allow all gingival defects to be simultaneously corrected with the soft tissue close to the defects themselves. The aim of the present study was to evaluate, with respect to root coverage, the effectiveness of a new surgical approach to the coronally advanced flap procedure for the treatment of ...

BACKGROUND: Multiple recession defects can be successfully treated using envelope-type coronally advanced flaps. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the long-term (5 years) stability of clinical outcomes achieved with the surgery and the association between patient variables and long-term stability.

METHODS: Seventy-three Miller Class I and II gingival recessions affecting 22 young, systemically healthy subjects were treated with coronally advanced flaps with no releasing ...

AIM: To evaluate the clinical outcomes of the use of a xenogeneic collagen matrix (CM) in combination with the coronally advanced flap (CAF) in the treatment of localized recession defects.

MATERIAL & METHODS: In a multicentre single-blinded, randomized, controlled, split-mouth trial, 90 recessions (Miller I, II) in 45 patients received either CAF + CM or CAF alone.

RESULTS: At 6 months, root coverage (primary outcome) was 75.29% for test and 72.66% for control defects (p = 0.169), with ...

The aim of the study was to compare the in vivo early bacterial plaque colonization of 3 different guided tissue regeneration (GTR) membrane materials using a morphological (scanning electron microscope) method. Rectangular-shaped strips were cut from 3 periodontal membranes (expanded polytetrafluoroethylene, polyglactin 910, and polylactic acid) and glued to the buccal aspect of removable acrylic devices, which were applied to the molar-premolar region of the upper quadrants in 8 dental ...

OBJECTIVES: To describe the differences in bone healing, when placing four different implant systems in fresh extraction sockets.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: Eight beagle dogs received implants randomly installed into the distal socket of three P3 and four P4. Four-implant systems were evaluated. Each animal provided four test implant sites. All animals were sacrificed at 6 weeks after implant placement, providing specimens for histo-morphometric analysis of bone to implant contact (BIC), bone ...

The objective of the study was to evaluate bacterial colonization of the tooth-facing surface of bioabsorbable membranes and to determine its effect on the clinical outcome of membrane supported reconstructive periodontal surgery. Twenty systemically healthy subjects affected by chronic adult periodontitis were enrolled in the study. One non-furcation tooth site per patient, associated with an angular bony defect and a probing attachment loss of > 5 mm, was selected to be treated by ...

The aim of this study was to evaluate whether an increased thickness of the gingiva through the use of a free connective tissue graft, in conjunction with a coronally advanced flap procedure, may positively influence the treatment outcome with respect to (i) root coverage and (ii) long-term stability of the position of the soft tissue margin following treatment of recession type defects. 67 consecutive patients having a total of 103 buccally located recession type defects of at least 3 ...

BACKGROUND: The periodontal phenotype consists of the bone morphotype, the keratinized tissue (KT), and gingival thickness (GT). The latter two components, overlying the bone, constitute the gingival phenotype. Several techniques have been proposed for enhancing or augmenting KT or GT. However, how phenotype modification therapy (PMT) affects periodontal health and whether the obtained outcomes are maintained over time have not been elucidated. The aim of the present review was to ...
