Periodontal condition of mandibular incisors treated with modified Kazanjian vestibuloplasty compared to untreated sites: A prospective study.

Adv Clin Exp Med 2021 Jun 11. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Department of Periodontology, Medical University of Warsaw, Poland.

Background: A shallow vestibule, insufficient keratinized tissue width and pulling of marginal gingiva may be associated with gingival recession, plaque accumulation and gingivitis. Conventional techniques for treatment of gingival recession use autogenous or allogenic grafts. However, these methods result in soreness at the donor site and pose an economic burden, which may cause patients to withdraw from treatment. Read More

Photodynamic Therapy in Orthodontics: A Literature Review.

Pharmaceutics 2021 May 14;13(5). Epub 2021 May 14.

Department of Internal Medicine, Angiology and Physical Medicine, Center for Laser Diagnostics and Therapy, Faculty of Medical Sciences in Zabrze, Medical University of Silesia, 40-055 Katowice, Poland.

Treatment of malocclusions using fixed orthodontic appliances makes it difficult for patients to perform hygiene procedures. Insufficient removal of bacterial biofilm can cause enamel demineralization, manifesting by visible white spot lesions or periodontal diseases, such as gingivitis periodontitis or gingival hyperplasia. The classic methods of preventing the above problems include, in addition to proper hygiene, ultrasonic scaling, periodontal debridement, and oral rinses based on chlorhexidine. Read More

Clinical condition of the oral cavity in overweight and obese patients.

Dent Med Probl 2021 Jun 1. Epub 2021 Jun 1.

Department of Periodontology and Oral Diseases, Faculty of Dentistry, Medical University of Warsaw, Poland.
