AIM: The aim of the present study was to assess the periodontal status of individuals and the presence of red complex microorganisms (RCM), such as Treponema denticola (Td), Porphyromonas gingivalis, and Tannerella forsythia in the subgingival tissues of periodontitis patients before and after the application of 4% mangostana gel (Garcinia mangostana [MGA]) as an adjunct to scaling and root planing (SRP). METHODS: Twenty-five patients (MGA group) were treated with SRP, and the subgingival application of mangostana gel was used as local drug delivery...

AIM: The aim of the present study was to determine the validity of quantitative light-induced fluorescence-digital (QLF-D) in regard to the detection and quantification of developmental demarcated hypomineralized lesions of enamel in vitro when compared to micro-computed tomography (CT) determination of lesion characteristics. A secondary aim was to develop a protocol for 3-D analysis using micro-CT. METHODS: Twenty-four hypomineralized defects were classified as cream/white (CW), yellow/brown (YB), and post-eruptive breakdown...

AIM: The efficacy of self-assembling peptide P11 -4 to regenerate enamel in natural early caries lesions was evaluated over 50 days by photothermal radiometry and luminescence using The Canary System (CS) and The Canary Lab (CL). METHODS: Baseline readings for sound and carious sites on smooth surfaces of extracted teeth were obtained by scanning with CS and CL. Teeth were then randomly assigned to a treatment group (TG, treated with P11 -4), a placebo group (PG, same vehicle as treatment group without P11 -4), or a control group (CG, no treatment)...

REVIEW
Edwin X J Goh, Lum Peng Lim
With increasing knowledge of wound biology and material sciences, the provision of dental implants as a treatment modality has become increasingly predictable and more commonly used to replace missing teeth. However, without appropriate follow up, peri-implant diseases could develop and affect the long-term success of implants. Currently, there is not enough focus on the prevention of peri-implant diseases, as compared to the definition of the disease, its prevalence, and treatment. In the present study, we aim to summarize various factors influencing the successful maintenance of dental implants and highlight current gaps in knowledge...

AIM: Human cytomegalovirus-1 (HCMV-1) and Epstein-Barr virus-1 (EBV-1) detection in submarginal plaque is linked to diseased states of the periodontium. In the present study, we evaluated the viral colonization of titanium and zirconia abutments by HCMV-1 and EBV-1 in a split-mouth study. METHODS: Forty dental implant abutments placed in 20 non-smokers were evaluated retrospectively. Each participant had received at least one each of titanium and zirconia abutments (in function for at least 1 year)...

AIM: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of two fluoride varnishes on color stability of three resin-based restorative materials. METHODS: Fifty-four discs (14.5 × 1.7 mm) were fabricated from A2 and A3 shades of a compomer (F2000), a flowable composite (Z350), and a hybrid composite (Z250), and incubated at 37°C for 48 h. Dura Shield (colored) and Fluor Protector (colorless) fluoride varnishes were applied onto the discs.
