AIM To develop a new cephalometric measurement to evaluate the sagittal relationship between the maxilla and mandible. MATERIAL AND METHODS Seventy-five pretreatment lateral cephalograms (25 each of Class I, II, and III) were subdivided based on ANB, Wits appraisal, and Beta angle into skeletal Class I, II, and III. The same cephalograms were again(More)

AIM To evaluate the effectiveness of the power arm in bringing about bodily movement and to determine the ideal length and location of the power arm. METHODS A geometric model of the maxillary right canine was constructed and subsequently converted to a finite element model. Material property data were represented, boundary conditions were defined, and(More)
Angiokeratomas (AC) are vascular lesions which are defined histologically as one or more dilated blood vessels lying directly subepidermal and showing an epidermal proliferative reaction with ectatic capillaries in the papillary dermis. Only three other cases of isolated mucosal angiokeratoma have been reported in the indexed literature. We reviewed all(More)
