Local application of enamel matrix derivative prevents acute systemic inflammation after periodontal regenerative surgery: A randomized controlled clinical trial.
Abstract AIM: The aim of this study was to compare surgical treatment of periodontal intra-bony defects (IBD) with or without the adjunct of enamel matrix derivative (EMD) in terms of acute-phase responses in healthy patients. METHODS: Thirty-eight periodontitis-affected subjects, one IDB each, were randomized to minimally invasive periodontal surgery (MIS) with or without EMD. Periodontal parameters were recorded at baseline and 6-months. Blood samples were collected at baseline, 1, 7 and 180 days after treatment. RESULTS: At 24 hr, the group treated MIS with EMD showed lower values of C-react...

Alveolar bone level at deciduous molars in Flemish children: A retrospective, radiographic study.
Abstract AIM: The aim of this retrospective radiographic study in Flemish children was to examine the bone level and bone loss around deciduous molars and factors influencing this. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 2896 digital intra-oral radiographs of children younger than 18 years old were screened for eligibility. The distance from the cementoenamel junction to the alveolar bone crest was measured and tooth surfaces were screened for local risk factors that are presumably related to changes in the bone level. A distance>2 mm was defined as bone loss based on previous literature. All measurements were performed by...

Adjunctive laser or antimicrobial photodynamic therapy to non-surgical mechanical instrumentation in patients with untreated periodontitis. A systematic review and meta-analysis.
CONCLUSIONS: Available evidence on adjunctive therapy with lasers and aPDT is limited by (i) the low number of controlled studies and (ii) the heterogeneity of study designs. Patient-reported benefits remain to be demonstrated. PMID: 31859395 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Journal of Clinical Periodontology)

Regenerative surgical treatment of furcation defects: A systematic review and Bayesian network meta-analysis of randomized clinical trials.
CONCLUSIONS: Regenerative surgery of class II furcations is superior to OFD. FImp (furcation closure or class I conversion) can be expected for the majority of defects. Treatment modalities involving BRG are associated with higher performance. PMID: 31860125 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Journal of Clinical Periodontology)

A novel, fully digital approach to quantifying volume gain after soft tissue graft surgery. A pilot study.
CONCLUSIONS: Digital processing of pre- and post-treatment images makes it possible to measure the volume of tissue gained after tissue graft surgery simply and non-invasively. The technique is an objective and reproducible method for measuring soft tissue thickness. PMID: 31860133 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Journal of Clinical Periodontology)

Regenerative surgery versus access flap for the treatment of intrabony periodontal defects. A systematic review and meta-analysis.
CONCLUSION: EMD or GTR in combination with papillary preservation flaps should be considered the treatment of choice for residual pockets with deep (≥3mm) intrabony defects. PMID: 31860134 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Journal of Clinical Periodontology)
