Management Of Severe Localized Periodontal Destruction Associated With A Cemental Defect: A Case Report, Nik Madihah Nik Azis, Nurulhuda Mohd 2022 Department of Restorative Dentistry, Faculty of Dentistry, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Management Of Severe Localized Periodontal Destruction Associated With A Cemental Defect: A Case Report, Nik Madihah Nik Azis, Nurulhuda Mohd

Journal of Dentistry Indonesia

This case involved the management of a possible cemental tear, which resulted in poor response to nonsurgical periodontal therapy. This case was managed by exploratory surgery, along with the intention to surgically reduce the periodontal pocket. Exploratory surgery revealed a localized cemental defect. The periodontium healed with pocket closure after exploratory surgery and open-flap debridement. The difficulty in clinically diagnosing a localized periodontal destruction and the lack of consensus on managing these cases were highlighted. The possibility of an undiagnosed cemental defect in a tooth with localized periodontitis should be considered in cases not responding to periodontal therapy.

Graduate Theses, Dissertations, and Problem Reports

The purpose of this study was to test the treatment concept of maxillary overdenture retained by four unsplinted implants placed using a flapless guided approach and immediate loading with Novaloc® attachments. Subjects with fully edentulous maxillae received 4 BLX implants (Roxolid®, SLActive®, 3.75mm diameter, Institut Straumann AG, Basel, Switzerland) to support an immediately loaded overdenture. Implants were connected with Novaloc® attachments (Institut Straumann AG, Basel, Switzerland) immediately following surgery if insertion torque (IT) reached 20 N/cm or above. The primary outcome variable was the radiographic bone level change at 6- and 12-months following implant placement. Secondary outcome variables ...

Zonulin As A Mediator Of Psychological Stress And Periodontal Disease, Casey D. Wright 2022 West Virginia University

Zonulin As A Mediator Of Psychological Stress And Periodontal Disease, Casey D. Wright

Graduate Theses, Dissertations, and Problem Reports

The prevalence of chronic inflammatory diseases is on the rise. Some have posited the permeability of tight junctions in gastrointestinal epithelium tissues as a potential mechanism for precipitating inflammatory processes throughout the body. Zonulin is the only known modulator of tight junction permeability and has been implicated in numerous chronic inflammatory processes (e.g., proinflammatory cytokine production) and diseases, more generally. The role of zonulin in oral inflammation, however, has yet to be explored. Periodontal disease is the most common oral inflammatory condition and primary perpetrator of tooth loss. Periodontal disease also is associated with a number of other health ...
