INTRODUCTION We compared the effects of 6 different rotary systems on transportation, canal curvature, centering ratio, surface area, and volumetric changes of curved mesial root canals of mandibular molar via cone-beam computed tomographic (CBCT) imaging. METHODS Mesiobuccal root canals of 120 mandibular first molars with an angle of curvature ranging(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study is to determine the prevalence of styloid process elongation (SPE) detected on panoramic radiographs (PRs) in Cappadocia region population in Turkey and to investigate the SPE incidences in relation to the age subgroups. METHODS Between 2004 to 2007 years, a random sample of 750 PRs was collected from the data files and(More)
OBJECTIVES The objectives of this study were to determine the prevalence, size, shape and location of the torus palatinus (TP) in dental outpatients in Cappadocia region of Turkey and to investigate the relationship between the findings in relation to age and gender. METHODS The present study included 2660 patients, who attended the Department of Oral(More)
This study investigated the presence of carotid artery calcifications (CACs) on panoramic radiographs (PRs) in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients treated with peritoneal dialysis (PD), and analysed the relationship between CAC prevalence and PD duration. A random sample of 110 PRs were collected from ESRD patients (15 with questionable CACs were(More)
OBJECTIVE There is limited data on the use of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanning in examining radicular groove (RG). This study aims to investigate the presence of RG in maxillary anterior teeth in a Turkish Population using CBCT scanning and to correlate the findings with the tooth type, and patient's gender. DESIGN A total of 1969 CBCT images(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to determine the diagnostic reliability of panoramic radiographs (PRs) in the detection of carotid artery calcifications (CACs) during routine dental examination by comparing them with color Doppler ultrasound (CDUS) examination as the criterion standard. The correlations between CAC formation and systemic diseases, body mass(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the prevalence of idiopathic osteosclerosis (IO) in the jaw by radiographic evaluation and to investigate the relationship between the findings in relation to age, gender, and localization. METHODS The study included 2,211 panoramic radiographs obtained from the patients (915 men and 1,296 women) whose ages ranged from 10-77 and(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study is to determine retrospectively the presence of carotid artery calcifications (CACs) detected on panoramic radiographs (PRs) in a group of Turkish population. Further, the relationships between CACs and gender, life style, and medical history were evaluated. METHODS During the years 2004 to 2006, a random sample of 1282(More)
In this study, we have explored the prospect of assessing and following level of total denture adaptation by use of EMG signals recorded during gum chewing. Total of 14 edentulous patients, 6 women and 8 men, with an average age of 63±9 years, were recruited. Separate EMG recordings were obtained from left and right temporalis and masseter muscles of the(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine how physical and morphological properties affect the fracture resistance of roots, and which criteria are important for root specimen standardization in fracture resistance studies. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy-five freshly extracted human canine teeth were selected. Crowns were sectioned from the(More)
