PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the total success rates of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA), ferric sulfate (FS), and formocresol (FC) as pulpotomy agents in primary molars. METHODS A randomized, split-mouth study design was used in 32 healthy 5- to 7-year-old children with 128 carious primary molars without clinical or radiographic… (More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of pre- and postoperative bleaching with 10% carbamide peroxide on marginal leakage of amalgam and resin composite restorations. METHOD AND MATERIALS Three groups were made using 30 extracted, caries-free third molars (n = 10). In the preoperative group, bleaching was performed with 10%… (More)
Mercury hypersensitivity is an allergic response mediated by the immune system. allergic reactions to mercury and other constituents of amalgam have been documented, but are very rare. The common symptoms are dermatitis, eczema, urticaria, erythema, edema and itching, occurring primarily on the face, neck, limbs and upper torso. In this paper an interesting… (More)
OBJECTIVES To examine the cytotoxic effects of MTA and Ca(OH)2 on 3T3 fibroblasts at different time intervals. METHODS Confluent cells were cultured with Ca(OH)2 and MTA in six-well plates. Wells with only fibroblasts served as controls. Cell number and viability were determined after 24 and 48 hours and 7 days of incubation. For cell viability, trypane… (More)
A study was conducted to determine the mercury concentration in urine after placement of dental amalgam restorations. The 24-h urine mercury levels in 10 children with a mean age of 8 years were determined before the amalgam restorations had been placed, and after placement. The urinary mercury content was measured by the cold vapor atomic fluorescence… (More)
Bizarre-appearing gingival recessions that do not correspond to any known gingival disease or oral manifestation of any known systemic disease are called factitial (self-induced) gingival disease. Psychological factors are very important in their etiology. Generally, the lesions occur during the time the child is experiencing stress associated with the… (More)
The EEC syndrome (ectrodactyly-ectodermal dysplasia -clefting) is defined as a multiple congenital anomaly syndrome characterized by ectodermal dysplasia, distal limb anomaly, cleft lip/palate, and lacrimal duct anomalies. This case report reviews and presents clinical symptoms and treatment of the EEC syndrome.
Oligodontia is the agenesis of numerous teeth, and is commonly associated with specific syndromes and/or severe systemic abnormalities. In this paper a patient with 14 missing permanent teeth is presented clinically with her conservative and prosthetic treatments.
Dentin Adhesit, Cavi-Line and Kavite Lak cavity varnishes were applied to the walls of prepared Class V cavities in fifty-two caries free extracted molar teeth before placing amalgam fillings. Tests with Methylene Blue dye after thermocycling showed that all cavity varnishes showed significantly lesser marginal leakage when compared with the control group… (More)
