OBJECTIVE To describe the dentoskeletal and soft tissue effects of facemask treatment anchored with miniplates after alternate rapid maxillary expansions and constrictions (Alt-RAMEC) in maxillary retrusion patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS The sample consisted of 15 patients with a mean skeletal age of 11.6 ± 1.59 years undergoing 8 weeks of Alt-RAMEC(More)
The increasing clinical importance of drug-resistant fungal and bacterial pathogens has lent additional urgency to microbiological research and new antimicrobial compound development. For this purpose, new thiazole derivatives of triazoles were synthesized and evaluated for antifungal and antibacterial activity. The reaction of propionic acid hydrazides(More)

ÖZET Aim: The aim of this study is to evaluate changes in soft-tissue profile with Holdaway Soft-Tissue Analysis and Ricketts’ “E” line in anterior openbite patients treated with extraction or non-extraction. Subject and Method: 23 patients with anterior openbite were included in this study. Patients were divided into two groups. The first group consisted(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the reliability of the reference distances used for photogrammetric assessment. MATERIALS AND METHODS The sample consisted of 100 subjects with mean ages of 22.97 +/- 2.98 years. Five lateral and four frontal parameters were measured directly on the subjects' faces. For photogrammetric assessment, two reference distances for the(More)
Recent observations (Eur. Phys. J. E 9, 135 (2002)) showed that the vitrification process, which sets in during the linear bulk methyl methacrylate (MMA) polymerization carried out below glass transition temperatures, can be modelled by static percolation picture. To generalize this observation for different kind of bulk linear or crosslinked polymers not(More)
The aim of this case report was to present the combined orthodontic and surgical treatment of a patient with Apert syndrome in an adult stage. A 15 years old male patient with Apert syndrome was concerned about the appearance of his face and malocclusion. His profile was concave with a retruded maxilla and prominent lower lip. He had an Angle class I molar(More)
Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate electromyographic (EMG) activities of left and right anterior temporal, masseter, and anterior digastric muscles during resting, maximum voluntary clenching, and swallowing before and after facemask treatment. Materials and Methods: Fifteen patients with Class III malocclusion (mean age, 12.1 6 1.43 years) were(More)
In situ ̄uorescence technique was used to study the free-radical crosslinking copolymerization of styrene and divinylbenzene in bulk. Pyrene (Py) was used as a ̄uorescence probe for the real time gelation experiments. The critical times, tr required for a dramatic increase in Py intensity, Ip, corresponding to the onset of the gel e€ect were determined.(More)
The aim of this case report was to present the orthodontic treatment of an adult with spaced dentition, Class III malocclusion, and open-bite tendency. A 28.4-year-old adult woman was concerned about the unesthetic appearance of her spaced dentition localized at both upper and lower arches while smiling. She had a mild tongue thrust, hypertropic upper(More)
The steady state fluorescence technique was used to study the sol-gel transition for the solution-free radical cross-linking polymerization of acrylamide (AAm), with N,N'-methylenebis (acrylamide) as cross linker in the presence of ammonium persulfate as an initiator. Pyranine (8-hydroxypyrene-1, 3,6-trisulfonic acid, trisodium salt) is used as a(More)
