Teaching guide and guiding works


Interdisciplinary subject of the research paper to be performed by the department staff: “Reasonable grounding for using dental products and elaboration of optimal methods for preventive treatment and rehabilitation of the patients with odonto-periodontal pathology”. New mechanisms of pathogenesis of periodontal inflammatory diseases ( role of thrombin and plasmin system in pathogenesis and sanogenesis of periodontium damage, correction of tissue microvasculature of periodontium, condition of antioxidant-prooxidant system during inflammatory diseases of periodontium, dysbacteriosis of oral cavity, immune diseases, treatment and preventive measures as to the treatment of periodontol diseases by the drug users and smokers, effect of pro-inflammatory markers on the patients with endo-periodontal pathology). Test models of different dental diseases are available.

Methods of treatment the inflammatory periodontal diseases by coformulated medicines based on the antioxidants , hemo-correctors, antiinflammatory and membrane-active products were elaborated. Modern treatment modalities directed on using pro- and synbiotics, citrus bioflavonoids for the treatment and rehabilitation of patients suffering from generalized periodontitis were provided.

Nano-laser disinfection of root canals were suggested and new methods of treating the apical periodontitis by using germicides were introduced. Aspects and treating patients with combined endo-periodontal pathology are being studied. Indexes of odonto-, gingival glyphics, gum bleeding and their mathematic estimation were proposed.

Noninvasive methods of teeth discoloration correction by applying of medical products based on the peroxide carbamide, aesthetic restoration of frontal teeth using composite materials were introduced.
