BACKGROUND Fixture placement in the tuber area is one way to overcome the problem of insufficient bone volume for routine implant surgery in the posterior maxilla due to severe resorption of jawbone and an extensive enlargement of the maxillary sinus. However, little is known about the long-term results. PURPOSE The aim of this study was to(More)
401 mandibular body fractures occurring during a 5-year period were analysed retrospectively. Out of these, 38 fractures (9.5%) were not consolidated by 50 days and made up the delayed healing group (DHG). A control group (CG) of another 38 fractures was constituted using the first mandibular body fracture consecutively following one in the DHG. The mean(More)
The management of teeth positioned in the line of mandibular jaw fractures was studied by a follow-up examination of 132 patients with mandibular fractures involving 185 teeth. The observation period varied from 1 to 3 years. The clinical and radiographic findings revealed complete recovery in 59% of the involved teeth. The degree of periodontal and pulpal(More)
The reliability of predicting the results of orthodontic surgical treatment was analysed. The sample consisted of 30 patients treated with one of the following six types of surgery: mandibular anterior alveolar surgery; maxillary anterior alveolar surgery; mandibular setback surgery; mandibular advancement surgery; Le Fort I surgery; and a combination of Le(More)
The oblique sliding osteotomy has been used for surgical correction of mandibular prognathism, sometimes in combination with open bite, in 112 patients treated from 1969 to 1978. The method has proved to be connected with few surgical complications and minimal relapse tendency. No correlation was found between the degree of posterior positioning or closure(More)
Bimaxillary surgery involving mandibular set-back and maxillary advancement has been performed on eight patients with severe prognathic mandibles and in two patients with pronounced retropositioning of the maxilla. The combined surgical approach turned out to give a very satisfying result both from the functional and aesthetic points of view. Whereas a(More)
