INTRODUCTION The aims of this study were to evaluate and compare skeletal, dentoalveolar, dental, and periodontal changes in surgically assisted rapid maxillary expansion (SARME) patients with and without pterygomaxillary disjunction. METHODS The records of 20 patients who underwent SARME in the clinics of the dental school at Marmara University in Turkey(More)
The aim of this retrospective study was to analyse the outcome of 44 cases of vertical alveolar distraction osteogenesis (ADO) and to investigate the complications, precautions, and treatment associated with ADO. The 44 alveolar distractions were performed on 40 patients. Extraosseous distraction was used in all cases. Complications associated with the(More)
A pyogenic granuloma is a tumorlike proliferation that occurs slightly more often in females, frequently involving the gingiva in the maxillary region. Clinically, it presents as a sessile or pedunculated exophytic mass with a smooth or lobulated surface, which tends to bleed easily. Its color can range from pink to dark red. The most common treatment is(More)
Zygomatic implants have been used for dental rehabilitation in patients with insufficient bone in the posterior upper jaw, due to, for example, tumor resection, trauma, or atrophy. Zygomatic implants are an alternative to complex free or vascularized bone grafting and distraction osteogenesis. A 42-year-old male patient with a severe defect in the right(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate dental anxiety in patients undergoing apicectomy procedures performed with conventional instruments or an erbium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Er:YAG) laser. METHODS Twenty-eight patients undergoing apicectomy were divided into two groups; roots were removed with an Er:YAG laser in group A (n=14) and(More)
A dentigerous cyst is a benign odontogenic cyst that is associated with the crown of an unerupted permanent tooth.

At the 2-year follow-up, healing of the lesion and ossification of the bony defect(More)
AIM To evaluate and compare the dentoskeletal effects associated with surgically assisted rapid maxillary expansion (SARME) performed with (+) and without (-) pterygomaxillary disjunction (PD), utilizing cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective study of 9 patients (1 male, 8 females, mean age 18.9 years) undergoing SARME(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effects of sedation and general anesthesia for surgically assisted rapid palatal expansion (SARPE). METHODS This randomized prospective study included 30 patients who were scheduled for SARPE, and was performed between January 2008 to February 2010 in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Faculty of Dentistry, Marmara(More)
Severe bone loss due to pathology in the maxillary tuberosity region is a challenging problem both surgically and prosthetically. Large bone grafts have a poor survival rate due to the delicate bony architecture in this area and presence of the maxillary sinus. Our case presentation describes a new technique for reconstructing severe bony defect in the(More)
