  1. 1. On approaches to periodontal infection control

    Author : Cristiano Tomasi; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The purpose of the project was to gain understanding of clinical possibilities and applicability of non-surgical periodontal therapy. A clinical study was designed to compare a full-mouth ultrasonic debridement approach with the traditional approach of consecutive sessions of quadrant-wise scaling/root planing with respect to the clinical outcome and long term stability.

  2. 2. Molecular and cellular interactions on noble metal nanopatterned surfaces − applications towards bone, soft tissue and infection control

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Sara Svensson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nanotopography; noble metals; titanium; biocompatibility; osseointegration; inflammation; host defence; monocytes; infection control; antimicrobial; staphylococci;

    Abstract : Biomaterial-associated infection is recognised as one of the main risks for failure of medical devices. The presence of a foreign material in tissues has been suggested to compromise the ability of host cells to eradicate infection. READ MORE

  3. 3. Attitudes and communicative factors related to oral health and periodontal treatment

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Jane Stenman; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chronic periodontitis; dental hygienist; communication; dental hygienist beliefs survey; dental hygienist-patient relationship; dental anxiety; grounded theory; interviews; motivational interview; oral health; oral hygiene behaviour; periodontal infection control;

    Abstract : The most important factor in the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease is the individual’s standard of daily self-performed oral hygiene. Consequently, a major task in periodontal treatment is to motivate the patient to efficient oral hygiene behaviour. READ MORE

  4. 4. Role of YopE and LcrH in effector translocation, HeLa cell cytotoxicity and virulence

    University dissertation from Umeå : Molekylärbiologi (Teknisk-naturvetenskaplig fakultet)

    Author : Margareta Aili; Umeå universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Yersinia pseudotuberculosis; bacterial pathogenesis; YopE; LcrH; virulence; effector translocation; type III secretion; regulation; ODONTOLOGY Cell and molecular biology; ODONTOLOGI Cell- och molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : In order to establish an extra-cellular infection the gram-negative bacteria Yersinia pseudotuberculosis uses a type III secretion system (T3SS) to translocate a set of anti-host effectors into eukaryotic cells. The toxins disrupt signalling pathways important for phagocytosis, cytokine production and cell survival. READ MORE

  5. 5. Healing of endosseous implants with different surface characteristics in grafted and non-grafted bone clinical and experimental studies

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Måns Jungner; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dental implants; surface characteristics; bone graft; maxillary sinus; implant survival; oxidized surface; turned surface; sinus membrane elevation; bone formation; macrophages; osteocalcin; osteopontin; CD68; odontologi; Odontology;

    Abstract : Aims: This study uses radiological and clinical evaluations of the healing of endosseous titanium implants presented with different surface characteristics in the clinical situation (paper I-III) and experimentally to describe the early bone healing in maxillary sinus membrane elevation with and without the use of grafting material (paper IV).Material and methods: In paper I, 136 patients were treated with 394 dental implants – 199 were oxidized titanium implants (Nobel Biocare TiUnite) and 195 were turned titanium surface implants (Nobel Biocare Mark III).
