Galleria mellonella as an experimental model for studying periodontopathogens
Thaís Aguiar Santos, Liliana Scorzoni, Aline de Castro Santos, Juliana Campos Junqueira, Ana Lia AnbinderJournal of Indian Society of Periodontology 2020 24(6):593-596 In the present study, Galleria mellonella was evaluated as a potential infection model for periodontal bacteria, more specifically, Porphyromonas gingivalis, Fusobacterium nucleatum, and Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans. All the bacteria evaluated were pathogenic to G. mellonella, causing their death in a concentration-dependent manner, and a decrease in their hemocyte count. Moreover, it was possible to recover the bacteria from the larvae hemo...

Management of true lateral infected radicular cyst as well as associated mucosal fenestration that occurred postoperatively through an interdisciplinary approach: A rare case report
Sanjeev Kumar Salaria, Shashank Arora, Shefali Goyal, Amit KhungerJournal of Indian Society of Periodontology 2020 24(6):588-592 A radicular cyst (RC) is one of the types of inflammatory cyst of odontogenic origin. It is usually associated with nonvital teeth and is mostly observed in males. It is routinely treated by nonsurgical endodontic therapy; however, if the cystic lesion does not respond to endodontic therapy, then surgical intervention with or without regeneration is the treatment of choice, depending upon the size, location of lesion, the bone integrity of the cystic lesion wall, proximity to vital structures an...

Periodontal flap closure using a simplified autologous fibrin glue preparation: A report of two successful cases
This report shows the use of an autologous fibrin glue in two cases, prepared using a simplified method. At the end of periodontal flap surgery, the flaps were closed with sutures in two papillae and fibrin glue in other two papillae in both cases. The papillae closed with fibrin glue showed better healing and good stability after flap closure. This simplified preparation of autologous fibrin glue has not been reported till date as found from literature search. (Source: Journal of Indian Society of Periodontology)
