BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Anchorage is one of the most challenging sides in orthodontics. The use of biological modulators that inhibit osteoclasts could be a solution to address these problems and provide new adjunctive approaches. The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of recombinant osteoprotegerin fusion protein (OPG-Fc) in orthodontic(More)
This article describes a virtual technique for transferring the location of a digitized cast from the patient to a virtual articulator (virtual facebow transfer). Using a virtual procedure, the maxillary digital cast is transferred to a virtual articulator by means of reverse engineering devices. The following devices necessary to carry out this protocol(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Conventional methods associated with many processes in dentistry are being replaced by methods that use digital technology. One of these processes is the making of occlusal records for the positioning of casts in a virtual articulator. Conventional interocclusal records and the articulator are currently being replaced by the intraoral(More)
The purpose of this study was to locate the 3D spatial position mandibular cast and determine its occlusal contacts in a novel way by using an intraoral scanner as part of the virtual occlusal record procedure. This study also analyzes the requirements in quantity and dimensions of the intraoral virtual occlusal record. The results showed that the best(More)

OBJECTIVES The aim of this literature systematic review was to evaluate the possible association between malocclusions, orthodontic treatment and development of temporomandibular disorders. MATERIAL AND METHODS A search was carried out on PubMed-Medline database from January 2000 to August 2013 using the keywords "orthodontics and temporomandibular(More)
The virtual technique described in this article integrates reverse engineering and mandibular dynamics into dental computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD-CAM) systems. This technique aims to provide more objective information to the dental technician for the diagnosis, planning, and treatment phases. In order to carry out this protocol,(More)
BACKGROUND For patients whose centric relation (CR) has not been considered at the start and during treatment, the task of achieving an occlusal scheme that works together with the temporomandibular joint, the muscles, and the structures of the stomatognathic apparatus becomes a major concern. OBJECTIVE This study aims to describe a reproducible,(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this prospective clinical trial was to evaluate the success implant rates during 24 months using OSFE procedure without grafting materials. STUDY DESIGN 42 adult patients (22 female, 15 male) were selected according to Nedir et al´s inclusion criteria of which 5 patients were excluded, due to periapical pathology in adjacent teeth(More)
PURPOSE This study was conducted to measure and compare the effect of the soldering method (torch soldering or ceramic furnace soldering) used for soldering bars to bar-retained, implant-supported overdentures on the fit between the bar gold cylinder and implant transgingival abutment. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-two overdenture implant bars were(More)
