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)
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)
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)
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 purposes of this retrospective study were to represent a newly designed theoretical model for determining orifice shape and morphologic properties of mandibular premolars and to correlate these findings with each other. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 287 mandibular premolar images obtained from 88 patients by cone-beam computed tomography(More)
The mental foramen (MF) is an important anatomic landmark of the mandible, in which the somatic afferent sensory nerve of the mandibular nerve emerges as mental nerve and blood vessels. The identification and actual location of MF are important in order to avoid sensory dysfunction or paresthesia due to mental nerve injury. In the literature there are some(More)
