Preservation of alveolar bone volume following tooth extraction facilitates subsequent placement of dental implants and leads to an improved esthetic and functional prosthodontic result. The aim of the present study was to assess bone formation in the alveolus and the contour changes of the alveolar process following tooth extraction. The tissue changes(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to identify risk indicators for apical periodontitis (AP) in the individual. A parameter was defined as a 'risk indicator' when its presence increased the individual's risk of exhibiting AP. Risk indicators may, but need not be directly associated with the disease. METHODS The study included full-mouth surveys of 613(More)
AIM To identify associations between clinical symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorders and radiographic findings. METHODS Two hundred four adult patients (156 women, 48 men, mean age 40 years) with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain/sounds or changes in mandibular motion were examined according to the Research Diagnostic Criteria for(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to investigate the quality of endodontic and coronal restorations and the association with periapical status in a Danish population. METHODOLOGY A total of 614 randomly selected individuals (20-60+ years of age) from Aarhus County had a full-mouth radiographic examination. The quality of endodontic and coronal restorations(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to identify risk indicators for extended operation time and postoperative complications after removal of mandibular third molars. STUDY DESIGN There were 388 molars included in the study. The teeth were removed using the buccal approach under local anesthesia. Four hours postoperatively the patient recorded his or her(More)
The detection of small carious lesions at occlusal surfaces is a difficult task, particularly in low caries prevalence populations and individuals. The aim of this study was to evaluate the performance of electrical resistance measurements (ERM) in diagnosing small dentinal lesions at one site per occlusal surface in low caries prevalence populations when(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the diagnostic accuracy of cone beam CT images with conventional tomographic images for the detection of morphological temporomandibular joint (TMJ) changes. METHODS 80 dry human skulls were scanned using a NewTom 3G scanner and lateral and frontal reconstructions of the right and the left TMJs were performed. In addition, lateral and(More)
The quality of a diagnostic tool for caries detection is usually evaluated by quantification of observer performance using sensitivity and specificity values calculated from data obtained from ordinal caries depth rating scales. The application of Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) analysis has been restricted to the use of confidence rating scales.(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim was to compare a CCD-based sensor and a storage phosphor plate with respect to patient discomfort and the efficacy of a simple cross-infection control procedure in connection with a posterior bitewing examination. METHODS 130 patients accepted to have one posterior bitewing of the left and right side taken with two digital radiography(More)
