Disease relevance of Root Planing


High impact information on Root Planing

  • The advantages of the decision that metronidazole be used were apparent from the comparison with the results obtained in the patients who received only the scaling and root planing [6].
  • All patients received thorough scaling and root planing as well as adjunctive placebo or spiramycin or tetracycline [7].
  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of the present histologic study was to compare the in vivo and in vitro effects of an erbium: yttrium, aluminum, and garnet (Er:YAG) laser (ERL), combined with a fluorescent calculus detection system, a diode laser (DL) and scaling and root planing (SRP) on periodontally diseased root surfaces [8].
  • Longitudinal examination of the Hp levels showed a significant decrease following scaling and root planing (3.68 versus 2.38 g/l; P < 0.01) [9].
  • Quadrants were randomly assigned to a) CO2 laser therapy (laser), b) Guided Tissue Regeneration (GTR) procedure using Gore-Tex Membranes, (Gore Tex, Flagstaff, Arizona, USA) and c) Scaling and Root planing (Sc/Rp) [10].

Chemical compound and disease context of Root Planing

  • The purpose of this investigation was to examine periodontal disease recurrence from 3 to 12 months following various treatments with scaling and root planing and controlled-release tetracycline fibers [11].
  • This study examines the clinical outcomes of treatment with locally delivered controlled-release doxycycline (DH) or scaling and root planing (SRP) in subsets of adult periodontitis patients with known baseline levels of subgingival calculus [12].
  • The purpose of this study was to evaluate treatment time and clinical and radiographic outcomes in 2 periodontitis cohorts, one receiving conventional PM and the other receiving scaling and root planing (SRP) and multiple doses of subgingival minocycline [13].
  • AIM: The purpose of this retrospective analysis was to examine what effect, if any, the time elapsed between an individual's last episode of scaling and root planing and subsequent treatment with a sustained-release doxycycline hyclate gel (DH) alone or scaling and root planing alone (SRP) would have upon adult periodontitis [14].
  • 74 adult subjects with moderate to advanced periodontitis were treated according to a split-mouth design involving the following treatment modalities: coronal scaling, root planing, modified Widman surgery, and flap with osseous resectional surgery [15].

Biological context of Root Planing

  • The OSFM disinfection procedure involves scaling and root planing of all pockets within 24 hours in combination with chlorhexidine application to all oropharyngeal niches (chairside and at home for 2 months) [16].

Anatomical context of Root Planing


Associations of Root Planing with chemical compounds

  • This paper presents 5-year data pertaining to a subgroup of patients from a previous investigation who were treated with scaling and root planing plus tetracycline fibers [22].
  • FDIS consists of 4 quadrants of root planing completed within 24 hours with adjunctive chlorhexidine therapies (e.g., rinsing, subgingival irrigation, tongue brushing) [23].
  • CONCLUSION: Adjunctive subantimicrobial dose doxycycline enhances scaling and root planing [24].
  • Scaling and root planing plus minocycline were not able to establish a clinically stable periodontal condition [25].
  • In two out of the six sites, scaling and root planing was supplemented with subgingival citric acid irrigation of the pocket after completion of the mechanical treatment [26].

Gene context of Root Planing

  • Eight adult periodontitis (AP) patients were studied immunohistochemically to determine the presence of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) MMP-1, MMP-3, and MMP-8 in the marginal gingival and gingival granulation tissue specimens obtained from periodontal flap surgery after scaling and root planing [27].
  • OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate the adjunctive use of enamel matrix derivative (EMD) on periodontal healing following nonsurgical periodontal therapy (scaling and root planing - SRP) [28].
  • CONCLUSIONS: Meloxicam showed a tendency to reduce GCF MMP-8 levels in vivo within the first 10 days when used as an adjunct in the initial phase of periodontal treatment that consists of scaling and root planing [29].
  • Removal of hard tooth structure by ROOTSHAPE root planing files used with a modified EVA contra-angle [30].
  • An increase in total IL-8 or IL-8 concentration after scaling and root planing was associated with an increase in beta G activity in some patients and a reduction in beta G activity in other patients [31].
