PURPOSE: Fixed retainers are used to stabilize dental elements after orthodontic treatment. Being it a permanent treatment, it is necessary to instruct patients about a constant and continuous monitoring of their periodontal conditions and a correct oral hygiene. The aim of this study was to highlight the possible adverse effects of bonded retainers on parameters correlated to the health conditions of periodontal tissues. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We selected 16 patients, under treatment in the Orthodontics Department of University of Bari Dental School, who had undergone a lingual retainer insertion at the end of the orthodontic treatment...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of the present study was to describe a postextraction, computer-guided protocol for implant-prosthetic rehabilitations in partially edentate patients with metal restorations. METHODS: A 60-year-old man with a loose FDP (fixed dental prosthesis) in the first quadrant was selected for a postextraction computer guided implantology according with the 2-piece radiographic template protocol. A two components radiographic template was produced, with the teeth setup portion based on the wax-up...

The study evaluated the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory efficacy, domiciliary oral hygiene, of a mouthrinse containing Tea Tree Oil (TTO) comparing it with two mouthrinses containing chlorhexidine 0,12% respectively and essential oils, and a placebo. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A pilot study, randomized 4 × 4, controlled, cross-over, double-blind. 16 subjects with gingivitis (7 males and 9 females) aged 21-37 years, were randomly divided into four groups based on mouthwash that had to be used for domiciliary oral hygiene: mouthwash with essential oils, mouthwash with chlorhexidine 0,12 %, mouthwash containig tea tree oil and mouthwash placebo...

AIM OF THE STUDY: It is well known by previous important studies that mandible flexes during different jaw movements. According to this assumption it is very important to know how implant supported fixed partial dentures could restrict mandibular movements and, could lead to excess strain accumulation that could modify the resolution of implant treatment. The aim of our project is to create a bio-faithful model able to recreate mandibular movements, during three point bending test methods of (FIXED -PARTIAL -DENTURES) FPDs, to avoid a not flexible metal base, where models' properties doesn't allow to obtain a bio-faithful simulation during testing phases...

Cleft palate only (CPO) is one of the most common congenital malformations worldwide. The etiopathogenesis of CPO is not completely understood. Environmental factors, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, intake of drugs during pregnancy, advanced paternal age, have been demonstrated to be a risk of CPO, but conflicting results have also been published. Insufficient intake of folic acid during the pregnancy has been suggested to increase the risk for CPO. The demonstrated risk for siblings and the higher risk for monozygotic twins suggest a genetic etiopathogenesis for CPO...

Partially or totally edentulous jaws frequently undergoes from moderate to severe bone atrophy with problems of prosthetic rehabilitation. The inability to make a prosthetic rehabilitation on implants may led to the use of a partial or total removable denture with difficulties in eating and speech, ulcerations of the oral mucosa and loss of facial vertical dimension. These problems may be solved performing bone augmentation procedures. Bone grafts and distraction osteogenesis brought implant dentistry from an experimental practice to become a consolidate dental procedure...

PURPOSE: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the prevalence of some periodontal pathogens in Italian adults with chronic periodontitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The sample consisted of 2992 patients with a clinical diagnosis of chronic periodontitis, based on the criteria of the American Academy of Periodontology, sampled in the period 2013-2016: 2108 patients were from Northern, 690 from Central and 194 from Southern Italy. Porphyromonas gengivalis, Treponema denticola, and Tannerella forsythia were investigated in all patients of the present study, while Campylobacter rectus, Fusobacterium nucleatum and Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans only in 2514 (84%) patients...

BACKGROUND: Periodontal disease (PD) is a multifactorial illness in which environment and host interact. The genetic component plays a key role in the onset of PD. In fact the genetic compound can modulate the inflammation of the mucous membranes and the loss of alveolar bone. The genetics of PD is not well understood. Previous studies suggest a strong association between PD occurrence and individual genetic profile. The role of genetic susceptibility could impact on the clinical manifestations of PD, and consequently on prevention and therapy...

Cleft of the lip and/or palate (CL±P) is the most common congenital craniofacial anomaly affecting around 1 in 700 live births worldwide. Clefts of the human face can be classified anatomically as cleft lip only (CL), cleft palate only (CP), cleft lip and palate (CLP) or a combined group of cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL±P), based on differences in embryologic development. CL±P has a genetic base and several linkage and association analyses have been performed in order to obtain important information about the role of candidate genes in its onset; not less important are gene-environment interactions that play an increasing role in its aetiology...

BACKGROUND: Titanium is the gold standard for dental implants, since it has demonstrated excellent biocompatibility and osseointegration properties. The rate of osseointegration is however affected by the surface morphology and peri-implant infections may affect fixture and the long-term osseointegration outcome. Thus chemical composition of a coating at the implant-abutment junction (IAJ) surface is expected to play a key role in preventing bacterial infection. PURPOSE: In the present study a new antimicrobial polysiloxane coating functionalized with chlorexidine digluconate (PXT) has been tested in an in vitro model...

AIM: The objective of this study was to compare different approaches temporary restoration in an immediate implant placement. To determine the respective influence of each parameter, two treatment groups were formed; a strict and standardized study protocol was applied to minimize the influence of bias and confounding factors. The Pink Esthetic Score (PES) - the esthetic out-come of soft tissue appearance was evaluated. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Sixteen patients with a single failing tooth in the maxilla and a natural contralateral site were randomly distributed into two groups...

REVIEW

The oral anticoagulant therapy is used for the cure and the prevention of thromboembolic diseases. In the last fifty years the warfarin has been considered the oral anticoagulant of choice. However, its use is limited by a narrow therapeutic index and by a complex pharmacodynamics, which requires regular adjustments and monitoring of the dose. Recently, three new oral anticoagulant - dabigatran etexilato (direct thrombin inhibitor), rivaroxaban and apixaban (Xa factor direct inhibitor) - have been approved for use in europe...

PURPOSE: The aim of this article is to make a comparative assessment between the modification of the soft-tissue profile, around the healing cap screws (HCSs), following both the traditional flapless surgery (TFS) and a new modified flapless surgery, named Modified Connective Tissue Punch (MCTP) technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 8 patients (3M and 5F) (mean age 54.25±11.247 years) were enrolled in this study. Sixteen two-piece implants were placed on upper jaws, 2 for each patient, 8 with TFS and 8 with MCTP technique...
