PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the heat generated in bone by 2 implant drill systems in vitro with and without using surgical drill guides. MATERIALS AND METHODS Temperature was measured with K type thermocouple in vitro using the bovine femoral cortical bone model. A constant drill load of 2.0 kg was applied throughout the drilling(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to analyze the changes in the position of the nasal and labial soft tissue profile of patients undergoing bimaxillary orthognathic surgery, with special emphasis on the effect on the nasal tip projection. MATERIALS AND METHODS The lateral cephalometric radiographs of 27 consecutive patients (16 female and 11 male(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to compare the effect of submucosal injection of dexamethasone and triamcinolone acetonide on postoperative pain, swelling, and trismus occurring after impacted mandibular third molar surgery. METHOD AND MATERIALS A total of 78 patients (aged 18 to 35) with asymptomatic, unilateral, impacted mandibular third molar, and(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the heat generated from implant drilling using stainless steel and ceramic drills. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 40 fresh bovine femoral cortical bone samples were used in this study. A constant drill load of 2.0 kg was applied throughout the drilling procedures via a drilling rig at a speed of 1,500(More)
Oral squamous papilloma is a benign proliferation of the stratified squamous epithelium, which results in a papillary or verrucous exophytic mass induced by human papilloma virus (HPV). These oral mucosa lesions are most often asymptomatic and have small progression. Laser assisted surgery is common nowadays with several advantages including successful(More)
Dentigerous cyst is a type of odontogenic cysts and generally occurs in the ages of twenties or thirties. Dentigerous cyst always includes a tooth which cannot complete the eruption process and occurs around the crown by the fluid accumulation between the layers of enamel organ. In rare cases, dentigerous cyst occurs in the first decade of life and develops(More)
OBJECTIVE When a mandibular third molar is partially impacted in the soft tissue, it must be determined whether the extraction wound should be left partially open or completely closed. We hypothesize that a blood clot preserving a surgical wound with easily cleanable surfaces by primary closure and drain application would postoperatively minimize dry socket(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of concentrated growth factors (CGF) on the healing of peri-implant bone defects in an animal model. STUDY DESIGN Twenty 4-month-old New Zealand White rabbits, each with an average weight of 3.5 kg, were used in this blinded, prospective, experimental study. Two implants were placed and 2(More)
Adenocarcinoma of the lung that metastasizes to the mandible is uncommon. There are only a few cases described in the English-language literature regarding metastasis to mandible from adenocarcinoma of the lung. This article shows a metastasis from adenocarcinoma of the lung affecting the mandible of a 55-year-old male patient where the metastatic lesion(More)
Antisynthetase syndrome is a subgroup of the idiopathic inflammatory muscle diseases and is characterised by myositis, interstitial pulmonary disease, arthritis, and Raynaud phenomenon. We report the case of a 34-year-old woman with known antisynthetase syndrome who presented with subcutaneous calcinosis bilaterally in the submandibular region.
