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)
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)
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)
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)
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 aim of this study was to evaluate changes to the Eustachian tube and middle ear function and hearing level in individuals undergoing Le Fort I osteotomy. 20 consecutive patients underwent Le Fort I maxillary osteotomy with advancement, impaction or a combination of both. All individuals underwent hearing sensitivity tests, including pure tone audiometry(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the effect of surgical mandibular backward movements on the predictors of a difficult airway. Thirty-seven skeletal class III patients were included in this study. The Mallampati score, body mass index (BMI), maximal inter-incisal distance, and thyromental and sternomental distances of these patients were evaluated(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)
The purpose of this report was to describe the case of a self-inflicted oral injury in a 1 1/2-year-old child that may be related to chronic pain caused by a severely burned body. In the present case, the patient lost his mandibular primary incisors due to continuous teeth clenching. He further traumatized the socket, resulting in severe ulceration.(More)
