Recently the potential of oral derived stem cells is being extensively studied.
There is a significant number of research conducted on different stem cells from pulp cavity as well as from periodontal ligament, dental follicle and gingiva.
How far are we from applying them into the practice? [..] READ MORE
Spermidine is an endogenous polyamine whose increase induces the autocrine remodeling into targeted cells. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the adjunctive beneficial effects of the local delivery of spermidine to periodontal non-surgical therapy on reduction of periodontal pocket.

The aim of this study was to compare the complications and the need for maintenance in different kinds of attachment systems for overdentures supported by implants. [..] READ MORE
The following manuscript attempts to unravel the anatomic variations which are ascertained via imaging and clinical co-relational findings exhibiting the intricate presence of complex network of neurovascular plexus / nutrient canal plexus presumably pointing out to the ascribing factors which could have led to repeated failure of dental anaesthesia and extended bleeding during dental extractions in the past as documented in the patient’s dental history.

The aim of this study was to establish the influence of sagittal dentoskeletal pattern on the value of angular profile parameters of the chin region, as well as to examine the significance of the established variations for each angle individually. This study included the examination and the analysis of cephalometric radiography derived lateral cephalograms to evaluate profile angles for 120 adult Caucasian subjects (60 male and 60 female) from the central Balkan region, aged between 18-30 years.

The properties of resin cements used to lute prosthesis to dental structures should be investigated by simulating the oral environment.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the mechanical properties of resin cements of chemical and dual sets by immediate hardness and after accelerated aging by thermocycling. [..] READ MORE
