Molecular identification of Capnocytophaga species from the oral cavity of patients with chronic periodontitis and healthy individuals
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.
In conclusion, the prevalence of dental caries and periodontal disease among pregnant women in this study were relatively high. The presence of untreated dental caries, moderate and severe gingivitis, and periodontal pockets were significantly associated with their corresponding oral symptoms.
ConclusionsOur findings suggest that ZC comprise a satisfactory treatment option for carious primary maxillary incisors, presenting good overall marginal integrity, gingival health, and aesthetics.
ConclusionDistinctive myeloid features and long-term follow-up including therapy options are presented for the newly described case of SMARCD2 deficiency. This disorder is apparent at infancy and requires early transplantation due to the unrelenting disease course despite conventional therapy.
CONCLUSIONS: The results of this study suggest that Carbopol 971P NF was the most appropriate polymer for a probiotic mucoadhesive ODT. PMID: 33006298 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: There is still insufficient evidence for suggesting that one toothbrushing method is more effective than another in plaque removal and reduction of gingivitis. Excessive variability in many aspects of the design and methodology of the selected studies hinder conclusions on an ideal manual toothbrushing technique. Experimental randomised controlled trials that follow the CONSORT guidelines are required to provide adequate-quality evidence and make any definitive conclusions on the relative effectiveness of manual toothbrushing techniques.
CONCLUSION: The cases presented suggested that severe periodontal CAL in children with AP may be an atypical manifestation associated with AP and/or GVHD, which may be aggravated by the presence of a dysbiotic biofilm containing periodontal pathogens, especially A. actinomycetemcomitans.

ConclusionAmong all parameters, only age exhibited significant correlation with an increased risk of carotid calcification. Further studies with prospective designs and larger study populations are needed.
Conclusion: The overlapping PISA values found in Groups 2 and 3 suggest that gingivitis might progress to a systemic inflammatory burden somewhat comparable to stage I periodontitis. This finding is supported by the higher serum and salivary cytokines/mediators levels in the gingivitis group than in stage I periodontitis group. Serum and salivary NGAL levels increased proportionally to disease severity and PISA. NGAL seems to play a role in the pathogenesis of periodontal disease, within the limitation of our study.
Conclusions: HIV exposed uninfected infants in the lopinavir-ritonavir group reported less impacts on oral health than the lamivudine treatment group. Dental caries, gingivitis, and tooth eruption were not significantly affected by the treatment lopinavir-ritonavir or lamivudine. Trial Registration ClinicalTrials.gov identifier: NCT00640263.
