OBJECTIVE To evaluate factors (root proximity and cortical bone thickness) affecting the success rate of orthodontic micro-implants (OMIs) using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) images. MATERIALS AND METHODS We examined 172 OMIs (1.2-1.3 mm in diameter, 8 mm in length) implanted into the maxillary buccal alveolar bone of 94 patients (33 men, 61 women)(More)
PURPOSE To compare the diagnostic value of high-resolution ultrasound (US) with nerve conduction studies (NCS) in patients with clinically defined carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). METHODS A prospective study was conducted on 66 consecutive patients investigated for sensory hand symptoms. The gold standard was the clinical diagnosis of CTS. RESULTS NCS(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of placement angles on the success rate of orthodontic microimplants and other factors with cone-beam computed tomography images. METHODS We examined 228 orthodontic microimplants implanted into the maxillary buccal alveolar bone of 130 patients (33 men, 97 women) with malocclusion.(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this in vitro study was to examine the effects of fluoridated, casein phosphopeptide.amorphous calcium phosphate complex (CPP-ACP)-containing, and functionalized β-tricalcium phosphate (fTCP)-containing toothpastes on remineralization of white spot lesions (WSLs) by using Quantitative light-induced fluorescence (QLF-D) Biluminator™(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to classify Korean young adults into 3 groups on the basis of upper incisor exposure rates (UIERs) and to compare the skeletal, dental, and soft tissue variables. METHODS Samples were obtained from 127 students at the College of Dentistry, Wonkwang University in South Korea. Facial photographs of frontal posed(More)
An unusual presentation of a chronic suppurative granuloma on the alar base area originating from a maxillary lateral incisor is reported. Treatment involved adequate endodontic therapy with simultaneous apical surgery and excision of the granuloma and sinus tract. Awareness of the possible dental origin of facial sinuses, despite their unusual location, is(More)
