OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of individual traits of malocclusion in a sample of Turkish orthodontic patients. STUDY DESIGN The present study was based on the examination of dental casts, intraoral photographs and panoramic radiographs of 1507 orthodontic patients (884 females and 623 males). The relationship of(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to evaluate whether early loss of the permanent first molars has an effect on the developmental stages and eruptive conditions of the third molars. METHODS Panoramic radiographs and dental casts of 165 adolescent patients (103 boys, 62 girls) with unilateral early loss of a permanent first molar were used to assess(More)
Pycnodysostosis is a rare genetic disorder and was first described in 1962 by Maroteaux and Lamy. The incidence of this anomaly is estimated to be 1.7 per 1 million births. The principal characteristics of this disorder are short stature, prominent eyes with blue sclera, beaked nose, cranial dysplasia, exposed fontanelles and cranial sutures, clavicular(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose of this study was to determine the possible effects of genetic factors on facial proportions and soft-tissue profile characteristics in Turkish Anatolian siblings. METHODS The material consisted of lateral and posteroanterior cephalometric head radiographs of 138 siblings (70 women, 68 men) living 15 years or more in the province(More)
The aims of the current study were to evaluate and compare bond strength of two conventional light cure adhesives and one reinforced glass ionomer cement. Thirty extracted human premolars were randomly divided into 3 groups. Premolar brackets were bonded to the tooth specimens in each group with their respective adhesive according to the manufacturer’s(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between the depth of the curve of Spee and positions of upper and lower incisors, overjet, overbite, and anterior lower crowding. The material consisted of lateral head films and dental casts of 137 untreated adolescent subjects, 76 girls and 61 boys, aged 13 to 16 years. The subjects were divided(More)
BACKGROUND It has been suggested that overjet may be related to the form of the maxilla and mandible. AIMS The aims of this study were to compare the gender differences in the maxillary and mandibular morphology in different overjet groups, and to determine the associations between overjet and craniofacial morphology in the same subjects. METHODS The(More)
Longitudinal growth changes in the transverse and vertical craniofacial dimensions occurring between 10 and 14 years of age were evaluated in 22 female and 23 male subjects. All subjects were healthy, had a clinically acceptable occlusion, and had not received orthodontic or orthopedic therapy before. Serial cephalometric radiographs were taken at ages 10,(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the effects of face mask therapy with and without associated rapid maxillary expansion (RME) in adolescent patients presenting with skeletal Class III malocclusion characterised by maxillary retrognathism. METHODS Case records consisting of lateral cephalograms and hand-wrist films of 43 patients with hypoplastic maxillary Class III(More)
AIMS The primary purpose was to evaluate condylar and ramal vertical asymmetry in adolescent patients displaying unilateral posterior (UCB) and bilateral posterior crossbite (BCB) malocclusions. A secondary aim was to compare the findings with a matched control group exhibiting normal occlusion (CG) using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). MATERIAL AND(More)
