OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to assess the in vitro diagnostic ability of visual inspection, film, charge-coupled device (CCD) sensor, photostimulable phosphor (PSP) sensor and cone beam CT in the detection of proximal caries in posterior teeth compared with the histological gold standard. METHODS Visual inspection, film, CCD, PSP and cone beam(More)
Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FCOD) has been described as a condition that characteristically affects the jaws of middle-aged black women. It usually exhibits as multiple radiopaque cemetum-like masses distributed throughout the jaws. Radiographically, FCOD appears as dense, lobulated masses, often symmetrically located in various regions of the jaws.(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to compare the accuracy of diagnoses of occlusal caries lesions from digital images captured using a photostimulable phosphor (PSP) sensor under in vivo and in vitro conditions and to present useful clinical data regarding the clinical application of the system. METHODS The study sample comprised 60 mandibular(More)
The keratocystic odontogenic tumour (KCOT) is a relatively common oral and maxillofacial lesion that derives from remnants of the dental lamina. It is aggressive, grows rapidly and invades the surrounding tissues. Various treatment modalities and differing recurrence rates have been reported for KCOT. In order to treat a 24-year-old male patient with KCOT(More)
Fingers as organs of manipulation have an important role in function and aesthetics. Moreover, for the majority of patients, the loss of the finger can lead to psychological problems. This case report presents the use of osseointegrated dental implants for the retention of finger prostheses. The possibility of using osseointegrated implant-retained(More)
PURPOSE To compare the effects of unfractionated heparin (UH) and a low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) on skin wound healing of rats. METHODS Forty eight male Sprague-Dawley rats underwent 8mm full thickness dorsal skin wounds and were randomly assigned to three equal groups. In experimental group A, heparin sodium was injected at a concentration of(More)
BACKGROUND Lingula is a tongue-like flap of bone that overlaps the mandibular foramen antero-medially and location is clinically significant in oral and maxillofacial surgeries. The aim of this study was to assess the shape and precise location of lingula using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). MATERIALS AND METHODS In this study, 3-dimensional images(More)
Few studies have evaluated the interaction between conventional complete dentures (CCD) and the respiratory system and the authors are unaware of any that evaluated the interaction between implant-retained overdentures (IROs) and the respiratory system. This clinical report documented the effects of wearing an IRO on the cardiorespiratory stability of an(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the antinociceptive effects of pharmacological activation of 5-HT7 receptors on orofacial pain in mice. MATERIAL AND METHODS Nociception was evaluated by using an orofacial formalin test in male Balb-C mice. Selective 5-HT7 receptor agonists, LP 44 and LP 211 (1, 5, and 10 mg/kg), were given intraperitoneally 30 min prior to a(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of working length determination by using an electronic apex locator, periapical radiography, and cone-beam computed tomographic (CBCT) imaging obtained at different voxel sizes and field of views (FOVs) in extracted human teeth. METHODS Thirty extracted human mandibular premolar teeth were(More)
