PURPOSE Thermal injury during implant bed preparation has a major influence on implant osseointegration and survival. This study investigated the effectiveness of the temperature of the saline solution used for heat control during drilling. MATERIAL AND METHODS Fresh frozen edentulous segments of bovine mandibles were sectioned into 12 x 6 cm pieces.(More)
OBJECTIVES Disc displacement is accepted as one of major findings in temporomandibular disorders. Correlation between lateral pterygoid muscle (LPM) attachment type to the disc-condyle complex and TMJ dysfunction has rarely been discussed and still not clarified. The purpose of this study was to assess the prevalence LPM attachment type to the disc-condyle(More)
PURPOSE To assess the clinical efficacy of midazolam plus low-dose ketamine conscious intravenous sedation on relief from or prevention of postoperative pain, swelling, and trismus after the surgical extraction of third molars. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients admitted for surgical extraction of mandibular third molars (n = 50) were included. All patients(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)
OBJECTIVE The goals of this retrospective clinical study were to identify surgically assisted rapid palatal expansion (SARPE) complications and assess their incidence, with the aim of informing surgeons and orthodontists of the risks of this widely used procedure before they recommend it to patients. STUDY DESIGN Between June 2008 and July 2010, 60(More)
OBJECTIVES Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is a rare form of neuropathic facial pain characterised by severe paroxysmal pain in the face. The treatment for trigeminal neuropathic pain disorder continues to be a major therapeutic challenge, as relief provided by medical therapy generally decreases over time. When medical therapy fails either due to poor or(More)
OBJECTIVES The radiological evaluation of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) consists of demonstrating the morphological features of the disc and the condyle in closed and open mouth positions using MRI. We aimed to determine elasticity of the disc by measuring the amount of elongation during mouth opening. METHODS The study population included 49(More)
In an effort to obtain a high-quality bone-implant interface, several methods involving alteration of surface morphological, physicochemical, and biochemical properties are being investigated. The aim of our study was to increase the osseointegration rate and quality and decrease the waiting period of dental implants before loading by using a microelectric(More)
