INTRODUCTION In spite of growing concern of routine mechanotherapy modalities in patients' health and recent regulations on nickel exposure, there has been no relevant meta-analysis. The aim of this study, therefore, was to investigate the effect of orthodontic therapy on the prevalence of nickel hypersensitivity and compare it with the prevalence in the(More)
Sickle cell hemoglobinopathy is an inherited disorder characterized by vasoocclusive crises. Involvement of the maxillofacial skeleton leading to radiopaque lesions that correspond to bone infarcts has rarely been reported in the literature. Forty-two adult patients suffering from sickle cell anemia were examined radiographically for radiopaque lesions(More)
OBJECTIVE To synthesize currently existing data and investigate the prevalence of tooth transposition as well as its relation to gender, dental arch, and quadrant occurrence. MATERIALS AND METHODS Several electronic databases were searched in order to identify the potentially relevant studies. Initially, 591 papers were retrieved. After applying specific(More)
Hajdu-Cheney syndrome (acro-osteolysis) is a rare disorder of bone metabolism characterized by progressive lytic lesions in a number of bones. Constant features of this condition include an osteoporotic skeleton, acro-osteolysis, and a shortened lower third of face. The purpose of this report was to focus on the craniofacial and oral manifestations of the(More)
INTRODUCTION Although powered toothbrushes have been recommended for gingivitis prevention in orthodontic patients, a relevant meta-analysis has been lacking. The aim of this meta-analysis was to compare the effectiveness of powered and manual toothbrushes in reducing gingival inflammation in patients having fixed orthodontic appliance therapy. METHODS(More)
The early and reliable detection of any adverse peri-implant tissue reaction is a prerequisite for treatment planning in patients treated with endosseous dental implants. However, traditional periodontal markers allow only the documentation of the severity of the preexisting destruction. Thus, simple and reliable clinical tests for monitoring peri-implant(More)
AIM To study the treatment management of first permanent molars in children with Molar-Incisor Hypomineralisation (MIH). STUDY DESIGN Retrospective analysis. METHODS The records of the clientele of a private paediatric dental practice were scanned. Thirty-six cases of children fulfilling the diagnostic criteria of MIH were retrieved who had been(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess tissue necrosis in beta-thalassemia major patients, as in other areas of medicine, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) have been widely used. These markers of tissue degradation have also been studied in the gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) in relation to periodontal disease(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the distribution of tooth transpositions in a sample of orthodontic patients, describe the accompanying anomalies and report on the management and therapeutic outcome. Overall, the male to female ratio was 4:3, left side predominance was evident, and there was a high incidence of associated dental anomalies.(More)
OBJECTIVE It has been suggested that saliva exerts a protective role against the carcinogenic effect of various substances in the oral cavity. The objective of this study was to examine the ultrastructural changes of the palatal mucosa caused by the application of 4-nitroquinoline-l-oxide (4NQO) in the presence or absence of saliva.
