Conclusion: In conclusion, the IONPs-CS-MCZ nanocarrier was efficient against three in vitro models of pathogenic oral biofilms, showing potential to possibly interfere in the synergistic interactions among fungal and bacterial cells within polymicrobial consortia. PMID: 32922677 [PubMed]
Rocco Franco, Patrizio BolleroEuropean Journal of General Dentistry 2020 9(3):103-107 Periodontal disease affects the supporting tissues of the tooth. The clinical manifestation varies from gingivitis to periodontitis. Periodontal disease is triggered by bacterial infection that releases toxins. The imbalance between oxidants and antioxidants determines the progression of periodontal disease. Melatonin (MEL) (N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine) is a hormone in the human body. Its production takes place in various organs including the retina, gastrointestinal tract, bone marrow, leukocytes, lymphocytes, skin, and principally pin...
Conclusion: Capnocytophaga species are commonly present in healthy individuals and may be associated with periodontal disease. There is a need for further study to know the prevalence of other species of Capnocytophaga in health and disease.
Background: Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) including hypertension, are characterized by underlying systemic inflammation. Periodontitis, which can impact the systemic inflammatory burden has recently been linked to high blood pressure (BP). However, the relationship of gingival bleeding, as an easily accessible marker of periodontal disorder, with hypertension, remains unclear. Methods: Survey-based propensity score matching (PSM) incorporating major confounders shared between hypertension and periodontal diseases was applied to cross-sectional NHANES III data from 5396 adults at least 30 years old who underwent BP mea...
We present a case of a 14-year-old girl with TS, who was referred to our outpatient clinic in 2016 because of an ectopic eruption. Dental clinical examination and radiographic investigation revealed 8 supernumerary teeth, short roots, enamel hypoplasia, increased overjet, rotation and displacement of teeth, moderate gingivitis, and morphologic alteration of the upper right central incisor.
Objective: Evaluate the association between periodontal disease, atherosclerosis, and carotid artery intima-media thickness. Study design: Cross-sectional observational study, which was performed through patient anamnesis and periodontal evaluation through plaque index, bleeding index, probing depth, and gingival recession. Thickness of carotid artery intima-media (cIMT) was obtained by ultrasonography. Results: The sample consisted of 92 patients aged 19 to 82 years. The prevalence of periodontal disease index was 74.2%, and the prevalence of gingivitis was 11.8%.
ConclusionsTinnitus, gingivitis, sudden hearing loss, Bell ’s palsy, and hoarseness can be seen in COVID-19, albeit rarely. Revealing the otolaryngological symptoms of COVID-19, and obtaining more information about the extent of disease will be useful in managing patients and their complaints associated with otolaryngology
Desquamative gingivitis is a generic condition with gingival scaling that can be a manifestation of autoimmune diseases such as lichen planus, pemphigus, and pemphigoid, etc. Diagnosis is based on biopsy of the lesions, hematoxylin and eosin staining (HE), and direct immunofluorescence, and the treatment of choice is the use of corticosteroids. A 59-year-old white female presented with areas of intense erythema and extensive ulcerations spread throughout the gingivae on both arches and on the hard palate, which stopped her from adequately feeding due to pain and bleeding.
Conclusion: Within the limitations of the present study, it can be concluded that sCD163 levels can be used as a diagnostic marker of disease as its levels are remarkably increased in GCFs of patients having periodontitis.
