Methodological evaluation of gingival crevicular fluid volume and neutrophil elastase levels: sequential sampling, length of sampling time and two different sampling methods
Objectives: The mechanisms underlying the formation and composition of gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) and its flow into and from periodontal pockets are not understood very well. The aim of this study was to evaluate the ...
Efficacy of oil pulling therapy with coconut oil on four-day supragingival plaque growth: A randomized crossover clinical trial
Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate the plaque-inhibiting effects of oil pulling using 4- day plaque regrowth study model compared to 0.2% chlorhexidine gluconate (CHX) containing mouthrinse. Design: The ...
The influence of zirconia coping designs on maximum principal stress distribution in all-ceramic premolar crowns: A finite element analysis
Purpose: To evaluate the effects of different coping designs on maximum principal stresses in the veneering material using a finite element analysis method. Methods: A maxillary first premolar tooth model was prepared. The ...
Histological evaluation of combined platelet-rich fibrin membrane and piezo-incision application in orthodontic tooth movement
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) membrane on tooth movement in comparison with shunt control and piezoelectric surgery. Sixteen White Vienna rabbits were included in the study ...
External apical root resorption after nonextraction orthodontic treatment with labial vs. lingual fixed appliances
Objectives The aim of this retrospective study is to compare external apical root resorption (EARR) after labial and lingual fixed orthodontic treatment, as detected with panoramic radiographs. Materials and methods Sixty ...
COMPARISON OF TWO MORPHOMETRIC LINEAR METHODS FOR ALVEOLAR BONE LOSS MEASUREMENT IN EXPERIMENTAL PERIODONTITIS
Aim: The aim of this study was to compare direct (performed by a dental loop, periodontal probe and digital caliper over the alveolar bone) and indirect (performed by means of a special software program on digital photographs) ...
