PURPOSE The aim of this study was to compare the fixation reliability and stability of titanium and resorbable plates and screws by simulating chewing forces. MATERIALS AND METHODS Mandibular angle fractures in 11 sheep hemimandibles were fixed with 4-hole straight titanium plates and 2.0 x 7-mm titanium screws; in addition, 11 hemimandibles were fixed(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the present study is to evaluate the panoramic radiographs of 4106 patients for carotid artery atheromas (CAAs) and to correlate our findings with the literature. MATERIALS AND METHODS The digital panoramic radiographs of 4106 dental patients (2428 female, 1678 male) were evaluated. Radiographs of patients 40 years of age or older(More)

Diflunisal and lornoxicam are currently available non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) that have been shown to be effective to various degrees in pain relief when administered either pre-emptively or postoperatively. The pre-emptive analgesic efficacy of diflunisal 1000 mg was compared with that of lornoxicam 16 mg in 40 ASA I patients undergoing(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate and compare intraosseous and extraosseous alveolar distraction osteogenesis. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty-three distractors (13 intraosseous; 10 extraosseous) were placed in 21 patients (9 males, 12 females; age range, 12 to 55 years; mean age, 37.9 years) with alveolar ridge deficiencies. Periodontal disease and alveolar resorption(More)
The effect of metallic fixation on growth is a major concern in children and is not yet clear. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of metallic fixation of mandibular symphyseal fracture on mandibular growth.Eighteen 90-day-old growing white New Zealand rabbits weighing 1.6 to 2.5 kg were included in this study and divided into 2 groups of 9(More)
PURPOSE For facial esthetic reasons, no sclera should be exposed above or below the irises when the head of a patient who has a normal skeletal pattern is in a neutral position and the eyelids are in a relaxed position. This study evaluated the decrease in sclera exposure after maxillary advancement or impaction in patients with midfacial hypoplasia. (More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effects of horizontally favourable and unfavourable mandibular fracture patterns on the fixation stability of titanium plates and screws by simulating chewing forces. Favourable and unfavourable mandibular fractures on 22 sheep hemimandibles were fixed with 4-hole straight titanium plates and 2.0mm×7mm(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of metallic rigid fixation of mandibular corpus fracture on mandibular growth in growing rabbits. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirteen 90-day-old white New Zealand rabbits weighing 2 to 2.6 kg were included in this study. Unilateral mandibular fractures were created in all of the animals and fixed(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to establish a model to aid in understanding the influences of bilateral masseter muscle relocation on the bone and muscle, and to determine the influences of bilateral masseter muscle relocation on mandibular growth pattern in rabbits. STUDY DESIGN Ten 3-month-old growing white New Zealand rabbits were included.(More)
