PURPOSE: To assess whether a combined treatment of low-frequency (25 kHz) ultrasonic-debridement systems followed by vacuum-assisted wound closure (VAC) produces a better outcome in deep sternal wound infections (SWIs) compared to that of VAC alone. METHODS: We evaluated 45 consecutive patients (25 males) between January 2013 and December 2016, in whom deep SWI was treated with a combination of low-frequency ultrasonic debridement system followed by vacuum-assisted closure (group A, n = 23) or with only vacuum-assisted closure therapy (group B, n = 22)...

Scanning electron microscopy evaluation of root surfaces after ultrasonic instrumentation was performed with 2 different metallic tips on piezoelectric devices. Fresh extracted teeth were collected for experimental observation and randomly divided into 2 groups: Test Group, where the root surfaces were treated using an iron, rough, double nano-structural coated (T-Black), corindone-treated tip, and Control Group where the root surfaces were treated with a conventional iron smooth tip. A scanning electronic microscope analysis was performed and the surface roughness and the amount of residual debris were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) is an inflammatory mediator whose levels are increased in the gingival crevicular fluid and blood serum in the case of chronic periodontitis. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to determine the effect of vector ultrasonic system (VUS) on the levels of TNF-α in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) and the clinical parameters in patients with chronic periodontitis. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study protocol was conducted using split-mouth design in 30 patients with chronic periodontitis...

Aim: The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of ultrasonic activation of photosensitizer (PS) drug Foscan in the elimination of endodontic pathogen from root canal system. Materials and Methods: The minimal bactericidal concentration of "Foscan" was determined using disc diffusion and broth dilution method. Forty-eight extracted single-rooted premolars with periapical pathology were used for the study. After access opening, the first microbial sample was taken...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study is to evaluate clinical outcomes of a concept for non-surgical peri-implantitis combining stepwise mechanical debridement measures with adjuvant povidone-iodine application with and without systemic antibiotics. METHODS: Forty-five patients with chronic periodontitis and a total of 164 screw-typed implants with peri-implantitis were included. Peri-implantitis was defined as radiographic bone loss of > 2 mm, probing depth (PD) ≥5 mm with bleeding on probing (BOP)...

OBJECTIVES: Patients with diabetes have a poor oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL). It is not clear if this situation could be changed with effective periodontal treatment. This study examined both patients with diabetes and systemically healthy individuals to discover the impact of a gingivitis treatment protocol on OHRQoL and its relation to objective periodontal parameters. DESIGN: After ultrasonic debridement, patients were randomly assigned to an essential-oils (EO) or placebo mouthwash group...

Tennis elbow is a common musculoskeletal condition affecting middle-aged patients with symptoms usually lasting from 6 months to 2 years. The vast majority of individuals will respond to conservative therapy; however, some will require surgical intervention. A new treatment system has been developed for use with ultrasound guidance in the ultrasonic microresection of tendinopathic tissue. This technology has been implemented in the TX1 Tissue Removal System and is used to treat various tendinopathies by debridement using targeted ultrasonic energy...

BACKGROUND: An in vitro model for peri-implantitis treatment was used to identify areas that are clinically difficult to clean by analyzing the pattern of residual stain after debridement with commonly employed instruments. METHODS: Original data from two previous publications, which simulated surgical (SA) and non-surgical (NSA) implant debridement on two different implant systems respectively, were reanalyzed regarding the localization pattern of residual stains after instrumentation...

In conventional endodontic treatment, alkaline solutions of sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) and ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) are used in combination to disinfect the root canal system and to eliminate debris and smear layers. An important concept that has emerged over recent years is the use of active physical methods for agitating these fluids to improve their penetration within areas that are not reached by endodontic instruments and to accelerate the chemical actions of these alkaline fluids against planktonic microorganisms, biofilms, soft tissue remnants and smear layers...

BACKGROUND: Peri-implantitis is a frequent disease that may lead to implant loss. The aim of this case series was to evaluate the clinical results of a new non-surgical treatment protocol. METHODS: Fifteen patients with dental implants affected by peri-implantitis were treated with a multiple anti-infective non-surgical treatment (MAINST) which included two steps: 1) supra-gingival decontamination of the lesion and sub-gingival treatment with a controlled-release topical doxycycline; 2) after one week, a session of supra and sub gingival air polishing with Erythritol powder and ultrasonic debridement (where calculus was present) of the whole oral cavity was performed along with a second application of topical doxycycline around the infected implant...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have provided substantial evidence of the association of Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, and its highly leukotoxic JP2 genotype, with localized aggressive periodontitis (LAgP). The present study aims to evaluate presence of JP2 in individuals with LAgP after periodontal treatment. METHODS: Sixty African-American patients with LAgP, aged 5 to 25 years, were examined. At baseline, probing depth (PD), clinical attachment level (CAL), bleeding on probing, and plaque index were measured, and subgingival plaque was collected from LAgP diseased and healthy sites for each participant...

BACKGROUND: We evaluated the effects of conventional ultrasonic scaler vs. Er-YAG laser on titanium surfaces contaminated with subgingival plaque from peri-implantitis patients in terms of: plaque and bio-corroded titanium oxide coating removal; surface change induction; residual biocompatibility towards osteoblasts. METHODS: Subgingival plaque-coated titanium discs with moderately rough surface were fixed with ethanol and treated with ultrasonic scaler (metal tip) or Er-YAG laser (20...

BACKGROUND: The aim of the present study is to evaluate the periodontal clinical and microbiologic responses and possible adverse effects of clarithromycin (CLM) combined with periodontal mechanical therapy in the treatment of patients with generalized aggressive periodontitis. METHODS: Forty patients were selected and randomly assigned into one of two groups: 1) CLM (n = 20): one-stage full-mouth ultrasonic debridement (FMUD) associated with CLM (500 mg, every 12 hours for 3 days); and 2) placebo (n = 20): FMUD associated with placebo pills...

The dreaded fracture of a root canal instrument is in fact a rare adverse event. Most instrument fractures occur in molar teeth with the highest degree of root curvature. Various treatment options (leaving the fractured instrument with or without apicoectomy, bypassing or removing the fragment) and removing techniques (using ultrasonics, hollow tubes or bypassing and removing with debriders) are discussed. The clinical prognosis for teeth with fractured instruments is not necessarily compromised if appropriate further treatment is undertaken...

OBJECTIVE: The risk of extrusion of irritative irrigants into the extraradicular tissue should be minimized during root canal irrigation. This study aimed to examine the pressure generated outside the apex during Er:YAG laser-activated irrigation (LAI) in comparison with passive ultrasonic irrigation (PUI) and conventional syringe irrigation (SI). BACKGROUND DATA: LAI is reported to be efficient for root canal debridement, whereas the apical pressure generated during LAI has not been investigated in detail...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of five intracanal agitation techniques on the penetration of irrigant and sealer into dentinal tubules. BACKGROUND DATA: Intracanal agitation techniques could promote chemomechanical debridement and the sealing of root canals during endodontic treatment. However, there is limited evidence for the agitation effect of Nd:YAP laser. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Human maxillary premolars with single straight canals (N = 60) were prepared with ProTaper Next(®) NiTi rotary files (Dentsply Maillefer) up to X4 (ISO 40 size)...
