REVIEW
Sameer Mokeem
The aim of the present study was to systematically review the efficacy of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) as an adjunct to scaling and root planing (SRP) vs SRP alone in the treatment of aggressive periodontitis (AgP). The addressed PICO (Population, Interventions, Comparisons and Outcomes) question was: Is LLLT as an adjunct to SRP effective in the treatment of AgP? Electronic databases, including MEDLINE via PubMed, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials and Cochrane Oral Health Group Trials, and EMBASE, were searched until March 2018...

AIM: The aim of the present study was to evaluate dimensional variations of augmented sinus volumes after sinus floor elevation using a lateral approach placing the antrostomy close to the sinus floor or more cranially to it. METHODS: Twenty-four healthy volunteers in need of sinus floor elevation were included in the study. The lateral approach was adopted placing the antrostomy randomly either close to the level of the sinus floor (group A) or approximately 3-4 mm cranially (group B)...

AIM: The aim of the present study was to investigate fracture resistance of implant-supported zirconia-based crowns (monolayer vs bilayer) cemented to hybrid abutments. METHODS: Monolayer and bilayer zirconia crowns were constructed and cemented to zirconia hybrid abutments. Crowns were divided into two subgroups: (a) untreated control group; and (b) experimental group, which underwent thermal-cycling mechanical loading in a chewing simulator. Up to 1.2 million stress cycles with simultaneous thermocycling (5 and 55°C) were applied...

AIM: The aim of the present study was to investigate the tissue generated after regenerative endodontic procedure (REP) in the root canal space of an immature mandibular second premolar with pulp necrosis and chronic apical abscess using cone-beam computed tomographic (CBCT) and histological methods. METHODS: REP was performed in an immature mandibular second premolar. At the 3-year follow up, CBCT scans were taken to evaluate the outcome of treatment. As the tooth was not restorable to function, it was extracted and processed for histological examination...

REVIEW
Gaia Pellegrini, Luca Francetti, Bruno Barbaro, Massimo Del Fabbro
Survival, differentiation capability, and activity of cells are strictly related to structural features and the composition of the extracellular matrix, and its variation affects tissue homeostasis. Placement of a dental implant in bone tissue activates a sequence of molecular and cellular events that lead to the apposition of newly-formed bone directly onto the titanium surface. Due to implant's interaction with the mineralized tissue, osseointegration is affected by the surface structure of the implanted material...

AIM: In the present study, we compared the cyclic fatigue resistance (CFR) of Reciproc Blue, WaveOne Gold, and SmartTrack files in curved artificial canals. METHODS: Ninety new Reciproc Blue R25, WaveOne Gold Primary, and SmartTrack X1 files were tested in artificial canals with 45° and 60° angles of curvature. CFR was determined by recording the time to fracture in the artificial canals. Two-way analysis of variance was used to analyze the data. RESULTS: In the canal with a 45° angle of curvature, no significant differences were observed amongst Reciproc Blue, WaveOne Gold, and SmartTrack (P > ...
