PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the posterior extension of trabecular bone and the height at which both the lateral and medial cortical bone layers of the mandibular ramus merge, using a reference point on the anterior margin of the mandibular ramus. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 80 adult human mandibles were studied. Starting at(More)
The aim of this study was to determine by computed tomography (CT) the interalveolar distance on mandible relative to the canine, first and second pre-molar, and the thickness of the cortical bone in the same region. A hundred adult cadaveric dentate human hemi-mandibles were examined. A point (P) above the upper margin of the mental foramen was determined,(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to obtain anatomical information for installing four zygomatic implants, by measurements of maxillae and zygomata. MATERIALS AND METHODS Linear and angular measurements were obtained from the maxillae and zygomata of 40 dry skulls. RESULTS Based on mean and standard deviation values, the installation angle of the(More)
PURPOSE We sought to verify the cortical thickness and presence of tooth roots and inferior alveolar canal where miniplates are placed using the Champy technique to treat parasymphyseal fractures between the canine and premolar. We also studied these anatomic features at the same level anteriorly and posteriorly to the mental foramen. MATERIALS AND(More)
