Influence of low-level laser on the speed of orthodontic movement.
TLDR
The diode laser used within the protocol guidelines increased the speed of tooth movement and might reduce orthodontic treatment time.
Surgical planning for resection of an ameloblastoma and reconstruction of the mandible using a selective laser sintering 3D biomodel.
TLDR
The development of new prototyping systems provides accurate 3D biomodels on which surgery can be simulated, especially in cases of ameloblastoma, in which the safety margin is important for treatment success.
Evaluation of optical density of the midpalatal suture 3 months after surgically assisted rapid maxillary expansion.
TLDR
Optical density analysis improves post-treatment control of SARME procedures by surgeons and orthodontists by revealing statistically significant differences between Stages I and II, I and III and II and III.
DNA damage and cellular death in oral mucosa cells of children who have undergone panoramic dental radiography
TLDR
It is indicated that panoramic dental radiography might not induce chromosomal damage, but may be cytotoxic.
Patient comfort in periapical examination using digital receptors.
TLDR
Denoptix was the most comfortable imaging receptor, followed in decreasing order by Schick and Visualix, conventional intraoral radiographic film with and without the use of an RINN film holder and conventional intraoran radiography film with a film holder.
Effect of image compression of digital lateral cephalograms on the reproducibility of cephalometric points.
TLDR
Jpeg images of lateral cephalograms with quality factors 100, 80 and 60 did not present alterations in the reproducibility of identification of cephalometric points compared with the DICOM format, except for point Or on the x-axis.
Clinical and radiographic presentation and preparation of the prototyping model for pre-surgical planning in Apert's syndrome.
TLDR
Clinical and computed tomography imaging patterns of a non-operated patient with Apert's syndrome were assessed, correlating the cranium, face and the skull base bone abnormalities, improving the criteria for a case diagnosis and surgical plan.
Cellular death but not genetic damage in oral mucosa cells after exposure to digital lateral radiography
TLDR
Exposure to digital lateral radiography may not be a factor that induced chromosomal damage, but it is able to promote cytotoxicity.
Rare associations of dens invaginatus and mesiodens.
TLDR
Dens invaginatus is a developmental variation resulting from an alteration in the normal growth pattern of the dental papilla that is observed as infolding of a radiopaque ribbon-like structure, extending from the cingulum into the root canal and sometimes reaching the root apex, assigning the appearance of a small tooth within the coronal pulp cavity.
Skeletal maturation in individuals with Down's syndrome: Comparison between PGS curve, cervical vertebrae and bones of the hand and wrist
TLDR
Adapting the methods developed by Martins and Sakima to assess skeletal maturation by cervical vertebrae in the curve of PGS is practical and useful in determining the stage of growth and development of individuals.
