Longitudinal craniofacial databases, including the Fels Longitudinal Study, the Michigan Growth Study, and the Nijmegen (The Netherlands) Growth Study, were compared for a set of 12 craniofacial measurements on lateral skull cephalograms. The age ranges of the subjects were 7-14 years for females and 9-14 years for males. When we compared the normally(More)
Recently, leukoplakia of the maxillary vestibule was described in patients with no traditional risk factors but who had used Viadent products. We designed a case-control study to evaluate the hypothesis that Viadent users were more likely to have lesions. One hundred and forty-eight cases and controls were identified through the Section of Oral and(More)
OBJECTIVES Recent epidemiological studies in the economically developing countries show that the prevalence and severity of dental caries has increased with industrialization and exposure of these populations to western diets. The aim of this study was to quantify the caries experience, and identify determinants associated with caries, in a population which(More)
An association between the use of Viadent toothpaste and/or mouthwash and the development of leukoplakia oral mucosal lesions has been described recently. Discontinuing the Viadent products may result in resolution of the leukoplakia, although frequently this is not the case. In order to corroborate the earlier study and to provide further insight regarding(More)
Cephalometric analysis of skeletodental features is accepted as an integral part of orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning. This assumes that diagnostic cephalometric variables affect prognosis and thus help reduce malocclusion severity, which is the aim of orthodontic treatment. The aim of this study was to assess the predictive value of 41 commonly(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the push-out strength of two different adhesive cements (total etch and self-adhesive) for glass fiber post (GFP) cementation using two different techniques (microbrush and elongation tip) of cement application. In addition, this study evaluated the effect of total-etch conditioning before the use of a self-adhesive(More)
