Academic journals are periodicals in which researchers publish their findings, mostly the recent ones. Academic journals are typically peer-reviewed journals that publish theoretical discussions and articles that critically review already published work. Academic journals serve as an important forum for researchers and academicians from where they can access important information about recent developments in their field. These journals are the first choice for any in-depth examination of an issue related to science. Science as we know is scarcely imaginable without the academic journal. OMICS Group International Journals fall under the academic category as they strictly adhere to peer-review process and follow the format by publishing mostly the original work. OMICS International journals publish periodically and contain a series of articles in each published issue.
Periodontal diseases are among the most prevalent oral pathologies. The elimination or reduction of periodontopathogens is the fundus principal in the prevention and treatment of periodontal diseases that is traditionally performed by the conventional quadrant wise scaling and root planing (Q-SRP).Unfortunately, treatment failure and disease recurrence may occur. Since the accuracy and ability in revealing different treatmentsâ outcomes are crucial for comparing their performance, salivary inflammatory cytokine monitoring seems to be very beneficial in this regard. The aim of the present study was to compare clinical periodontal and gingival parameters along with salivary inflammatory cytokines between the one stage full mouth disinfection and conventional quadrant wise scaling and root planning and measured some of the (pro) inflammatory salivary biomarkers. The conventional method for periodontal disease screening is by measuring the clinical parameters. Although these methods are successfully used today, the time and expense limit them for screening patients in the epidemiologic studies. On the other hand, the clinical methods have many other limitations. Because some of the inflammatory biomarkers are also active osteoclastic cytokines, minute changes in bone modeling will be reflected in their salivary profile. Indeed the salivary biomarkers might be more accurate in detection of periodontitis at least in the initial stages of periodontal disease since there is no need for clinical manifestation of the increased cytokines enabling the clinician for disease detection.
