Alveolar bone loss (RRR) is a continuous process following tooth extraction, more pronounced during the first few months after the tooth extraction than later. The RRR in the mandible is twice that of the maxilla during a 1-year period and the mandibular: maxillary resorption ratio increases further to 4:1. So far, the etiology of RRR has not been(More)
Mandibular movements have been analyzed extensively in the past for prosthodontic reasons, and more recently to study the function of the masticatory system. This study investigated the range of mandibular movements in a young male population, and analyzed the difference in range of mouth opening, right and left lateral movements, and protrusive movement(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of the present study was to investigate how some esthetic dental and facial measurements may correlate the variability of patients' ratings of their satisfaction with the maxillary anterior teeth appearance in different gender groups. MATERIALS AND METHODS The following measurements were made on 78 Caucasian subjects: width and length(More)
The aim of the study was to investigate the range of mandibular movements and to analyze the difference in range of mouth opening, right and left lateral movements, and protrusive movement between patients with clinical diagnoses of temporomandibular disorders and asymptomatic subjects (control group) in a young male population. A total of 240 subjects,(More)
OBJECTIVE To estimate four radiomorphometric indices of mandibular bones in an 18th century population sample, and possibly associate the findings with bone mass loss related to sex, age, nutritional habits and pathologies reflecting on the bone. DESIGN Thirty-six sculls (31 males, 5 females), recovered from the crypt of Požega Cathedral in Croatia were(More)
The objective of this study was to measure and assess a number of radiomorphometric indices of the mandibular removable denture wearers taking into account age and gender. In a total of 136 dental panoramic radiographs (DPR) the following parameters were evaluated: MI = thickness of the mandibular cortex below the mental foramen, AI = thickness at the(More)
BACKGROUND The rate of residual ridge atrophy (RRR) and its association with mineral density of other bones have not yet been fully explained. OBJECTIVE To measure RRR over a 5-year period in complete denture wearers and relate it to the density of a cervical spine (CSBD). MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty-two patients (different gender, age, body mass index,(More)
Denture stomatitis (DS) is often found under the removable partial dentures (RPDs). There are many factors influencing it, such as patient's age and gender, smoking habits, denture age, denture material, denture wearing habits, denture hygiene habits, oral hygiene instruction, denture cleanness and denture plaque accumulation. The aim of this study was to(More)
Osteoporosis, one of the major skeletal diseases in older age, is characterised by low bone mass and microarchitectural deterioration with a resulting increase in bone fragility and hence susceptibility to fracture. In this review we analyse the systemic and local factors associated with oral bone mass loss. Systemic factors most often correlated with the(More)
The aim of this study was to quantify the specific distal displacement of the gingival zenith in the maxillary anterior dentition. Bilateral measurements, taken with a digital caliper in maxillary stone casts were recorded in six maxillary anterior teeth to evaluate distal displacement of the gingival zenith in relation to the long axis of the crowns. The(More)
