Invasive cervical root resorption (ICR) is the reversible/irreversible loss of tooth structure in the connective tissue attachment zone with unclear etiology. In the present case a history of periodontal surgery was presumed to be the predisposing factor. Early diagnosis and proper treatment may lead to long-term retention of the tooth. The tooth is usually asymptomatic and diagnosis is commonly made as a result of a routine radiographic finding. Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) is extremely useful in diagnosis and treatment planning of ICR...

This case report presents the successful surgical treatment of a symptomatic open apex upper central incisor with a failed overfilled mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) apical plug. Unintentional overextension of the MTA had occurred two years before the initial visit. An apical lesion adjacent to the excess MTA was radiographically detectable. Endodontic surgery was performed using calcium-enriched mixture (CEM) cement as a root-end filling material. Curettage of the apical lesion showed a mass of unset MTA particles; histopathological examination revealed fragments of MTA and granulation tissues...

Denis F Kinane, Panagiota G Stathopoulou, Panos N Papapanou
Periodontal diseases comprise a wide range of inflammatory conditions that affect the supporting structures of the teeth (the gingiva, bone and periodontal ligament), which could lead to tooth loss and contribute to systemic inflammation. Chronic periodontitis predominantly affects adults, but aggressive periodontitis may occasionally occur in children. Periodontal disease initiation and propagation is through a dysbiosis of the commensal oral microbiota (dental plaque), which then interacts with the immune defences of the host, leading to inflammation and disease...

The purpose of this article was to report a case of untreated apical periodontitis resulting in severe late complications. A patient with an asymptomatic crowned root canal-treated mandibular molar revealing a radiographic substandard endodontic treatment and a slight periapical radiolucency was made aware of the treatment options and opted for no treatment. The lesion slightly increased in size after 6 years, but the tooth remained asymptomatic and endodontic retreatment was again refused. After 4 more years, the patient presented with an abscess and severe pain, complicated by paraesthesia of the left chin and lip...

The human periodontium is a uniquely complex vital structure, supporting and anchoring the teeth in their alveolar sockets, playing thereby a decisive role in tooth homeostasis and function. Chronic periodontitis is a highly prevalent immune-inflammatory disease of the periodontium, affecting 15% of adult individuals and is characterized by progressive destruction of the periodontal tooth-investing tissues, culminating in their irreversible damage. Current periodontal evidence-based treatment strategies achieve periodontal healing via repair processes, mostly combating the inflammatory component of the disease, to halt or reduce prospective periodontal tissue loss...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to develop pH-responsive polylactide-glycolic acid co-polymer and chitosan (PLGA/chitosan) nanosphere as an inflammation-responsive vehicle and evaluate the potential of the nanosphere encapsulating metronidazole, an antibiotic, and N-phenacylthiazolium bromide (PTB), a host modulator, for treating periodontitis. MATERIAL AND METHODS: PLGA/chitosan nanospheres were fabricated using oil-in-water emulsion method. Experimental periodontitis was induced on the rat maxillae, and the sites were randomly allocated to four treatment categories, including periodontitis alone (PR), periodontitis with nanospheres alone, nanospheres encapsulating metronidazole (MT) and nanospheres encapsulating PTB (PB)...

Periodontal disease (PD) in diabetic patients is described as the 6th complication of diabetes. We have previously shown that diabetes increases dental caries, and carious inflammation might have a strong effect on the adjacent periodontal tissue in diabetic rodent models. However, the possibility that hyperglycemia may induce PD in diabetic animals could not be completely eliminated. The goal of this study was to confirm the presence of PD in diabetic animal models by preventing carious inflammation with fluoride administration...

Yimiao Feng, Xiaohui Fu, Xintian Lou, Baiping Fu
Periodontal ligament stem cells (PDLSCs) are considered a promising cell source for dental tissue regeneration. Stromal cell-derived factor 1 [SDF‑1, also known as chemokine (C‑X‑C motif) ligand 12] is regarded as a critical cytokine involved in stem/progenitor cell chemotaxis and homing during tissue regeneration. The present study described a previously unsuspected role for SDF‑1 in the protection of PDLSCs against oxidative stress‑induced apoptosis. In the present study, apoptosis was induced by exposure of PDLSCs to various concentrations of H2O2 for 12 h, following which cell viability was assessed, and cleaved caspase‑3 and ‑9 expression levels were evaluated...

PURPOSE: The interaction of Porphyromonas gingivalis with commensal streptococci promotes P. gingivalis colonization of the oral cavity. We previously showed that a synthetic peptide (BAR) derived from Streptococcus gordonii potently inhibited the formation of P. gingivalis/S. gordonii biofilms (IC50 =1.3 µM) and reduced P. gingivalis virulence in a mouse model of periodontitis. Thus, BAR represents a novel therapeutic to control periodontitis by limiting P. gingivalis colonization of the oral cavity...
