Scanning electron microscope assessment of several resharpening techniques on the cutting edges of gracey curettes
Aim: Treatment of periodontal diseases is based on efficient scaling and root planing (SRP) and adequate maintenance of the patient. The effectiveness of SRP is influenced by operator skill, access to the subgingival area, ...
Comparative study on the effect of ultrasonic instruments on the root surface in vivo
(Springer Heidelberg, 2008-06-01)
The present study was designed to investigate the effectiveness of different ultrasonic instruments on the root surface. Fourteen patients with 35 single root teeth designated for extraction were recruited to the present ...
Monitoring scaling and dental calculus removal with an optical fluorescence system
(Iop Publishing Ltd, 2014)
Scanning electron microscopic and profilometric study of different sharpening stones
Scaling and root planing contribute to the recovery of periodontal health. All periodontal instruments loose their fine cutting angle after use. To maintain this angle, correct sharpening is required using specifically ...
Efficacy of Carisolv™ as an adjunctive therapy to scaling and root planing on subgingival calculus removal
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of subgingival application of Carisolv™ gel as an adjunctive therapy to scaling and root planing (SRP) on calculus removal compared to conventional instrumentation. ...
Effect of instrumentation using curettes, piezoelectric ultrasonic scaler and er,cr:Ysgg laser on the morphology and adhesion of blood components on root surfaces - A SEM study
This study used scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to evaluate the morphology and adhesion of blood components on root surfaces instrumented by curettes, piezoelectric ultrasonic scaler and Er,Cr:YSGG laser. One hundred ...
CPITN: time and cost estimates for periodontal prevention and treatment procedures.
The aim of this study was to estimate the necessary time and cost for periodontal prevention and treatment in a working population from sugar and alcohol refineries in Araraquara, SP, Brazil. A stratified sample of 528 ...
Salivary alpha amylase and cortisol levels in children with global developmental delay and their relation with the expectation of dental care and behavior during the intervention
(Pergamon-Elsevier B.V. Ltd, 2012-03-01)
The purpose of this study was to analyze the alpha-amylase (sAA) and cortisol levels in children with Global developmental delay (GDD) before and after dental treatment and its association with the children's behavior ...
Expectations and final evaluation of complete dentures by patients, dentist and dental technician
(Wiley-Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2010-07-01)
There is a poor association between the dentist's evaluation of denture quality and patients' satisfaction with their dentures. Possible differences between dental professionals and patients' expectations might help explain ...
Response of molars and non-molars to a strict supragingival control in periodontal patients
The posterior position in the arches is one of the factors that underlies the poor prognosis of molar teeth (M). It is speculated that M do not benefit from the oral hygiene routine as well as non-molars (NM) do. This study ...
