The aims of the study were to assess speed, reliability, accuracy, and reproducibility in measuring mesiodistal tooth sizes, bicanine widths, bimolar widths, and arch lengths (ALs) using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) and to compare them with the same measurements obtained using a two-dimensional (2D) Digital Method. Plaster study models were made for(More)
The mandibular third molar (3M) is the tooth that is most often impacted, with lack of space being one of the reasons. In some orthodontic treatments, premolars are extracted in order to create space. The aims of our study are: firstly, to assess the changes in the angulation and position of the 3M in cases treated either with or without extraction of the(More)
INTRODUCTION The aims of the study were; to evaluate the applicability of the Moyers and Tanaka-Johnston Methods to individuals with a Spanish ancestry, to propose new regression equations using the lower four permanent incisors as predictors for the sum of the widths of the lower permanent canine and premolars, and to compare the new data to those from(More)
PURPOSE The present study aims to determine any existing association between airway dimensions, measured with cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), and the different patient craniofacial morphologies. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixty CBCT (Dental Picasso Master 3D) images, from patients treated at the Orthodontics Master at Valencia University were selected.(More)
AIMS To evaluate the reliability and reproducibility of calculating the Bolton Index using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), and to compare this with measurements obtained using the 2D Digital Method. MATERIAL AND METHODS Traditional study models were obtained from 50 patients, which were then digitized in order to be able to measure them using the(More)
OBJECTIVES To analyze the perception of smile esthetics and its alterations in dental degree students; to determine whether there are differences in that perception among students in different study years on those courses and between genders; and to determine if the circumstance of having received prior orthodontic treatment could influence that perception.(More)
OBJECTIVES Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is an innovative dental of imaging system characterized by rapid volumetric imaging with patient exposure to a single dose of radiation. The present study was carried out to compare the linear measurements obtained with CBCT and digital caliper in 20 mandibles from human cadavers. STUDY DESIGN A total of(More)
To develop a 3D cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) method (CBCT method) for determining tooth sizes and arch dimensions and to compare the accuracy and reproducibility of that method with those of a previously described 3D segmented CBCT method (CBCT seg. method) and a 2D digital method. Plaster study models and CBCT images were available for 34 patients.(More)
OBJETIVES Assess levels of trait anxiety, state anxiety and dental anxiety before extraction of lower third molars and check the correlation and reliability of the scales used for the measurement of preoperative anxiety. STUDY DESIGN A prospective study of patients treated with extraction of a lower third molar between September 2010 to December 2010 was(More)
OBJECTIVES To quantify, using bibliometric indicators, the scientific productivity of researchers, organizations, and countries, publishing articles on implantology in dental journals indexed in Journal Citation Reports between 2009 and 2013. MATERIALS AND METHODS Published texts were identified by applying the truncated search term "implant*." Document(More)
