PURPOSE The present study examined the formation and density of new bone after sinus membrane elevation, with and without bone grafting, and evaluated the bone formation at the apices of the implants with these 2 different maxillary sinus floor elevation techniques. MATERIALS AND METHODS In a prospective randomized controlled study design, patients(More)
PURPOSE Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive genetic disorder characterized by palmar-plantar hyperkeratosis, with rapidly progressive periodontitis and premature loss of both deciduous and permanent teeth. This article presents the prosthetic rehabilitation of a patient with Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome with dental implants. MATERIALS AND(More)
OBJECTIVE There is little data available on the relationship between immunosuppression and polysubstance abuse and postoperative infection in patients with mandibular fractures. In this study we aimed to assess these parameters. STUDY DESIGN This study sample consisted of 120 patients who were admitted to the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery(More)
OBJECTIVES Vertical bone loss in edentulous maxillary alveolar processes may necessitate a sinus lift before the placement of dental implants. We have measured and assessed maxillary sinuses meticulously before the operation and evaluated the postoperative results of the operation with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS Thirteen edentulous(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to histopathologically evaluate the effects of pamidronate and zoledronate on the mandible in an animal model. STUDY DESIGN Sixty female Sprague-Dawley rats were used in this study. Animals were divided into 6 groups (10 per group): control-1 (C1), injected with saline solution for 6 weeks; zoledronate-1 (ZA1), injected(More)

There is very little in the oral surgery literature on this subject. MATERIALS AND METHODS Proper Institutional Review Board approval was obtained from the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the preventive effect of locally applied sodium bicarbonate on bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ). STUDY DESIGN Thirty-six Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into 4 groups. Animals in group I received 0.1 mg/kg sterile saline 3 times per week for 8 weeks. Groups II, III, and IV received intraperitoneal(More)
Mandibular fractures in infants are rare. Different methods have been described for treatment of fractures of the mandible in infants. Internal fixation of a mandibular fracture with a biodegradable plate in an 8-month-old baby is described. In addition, choices of treatment modality in such cases are discussed.
Bisphosphonate (BP)-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) is a serious and challenging complication of chronic BP uptake in patients with osteoporosis who require management of skeletal-related events. The efficiency of adjunctive parathyroid hormone (PTH) injection was evaluated after chronic BP administration that was followed by tooth extraction.(More)
