This article describes five cases of congenital epulis, a rare and benign swelling in the mouth of a newborn, which is not widely known. We present five cases: four cases presented as single pedunculated nodules of the gingiva and in one case two nodules were present. Of all, 50% were located at the maxilla. Excision was performed in four of the five cases(More)
Computed tomography (CT) was used to determine the fate of the bone graft in cleft lip and palate patients. Eight right-sided unilateral cleft lip and palate patients from the Free University Hospital in Amsterdam, treated with early, secondary bone grafting, were evaluated immediately after the operation and 1 year postoperatively. Approximately 70% of the(More)
BACKGROUND, AIMS Congenital neutropenia is one condition that may predispose for destructive periodontal disease at a young age. In this report, we describe the microbiology of 3 adolescent patients with congenital neutropenia two of whom suffered from severe periodontitis. METHOD Microbiological testing of the parents was also performed in 1 case. DNA(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the preclinical use of a training model in local anesthesia teaching on the subsequent clinical administration of a local anesthetic. Sixty-five dental students gave their first injection to a fellow dental student: twenty-two students after previous experience on a training model and forty-three without this training.(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between cleft width and the residual amount of bone after bone grafting in 53 unilateral cleft lip and palate patients. STUDY DESIGN The fate of the bone graft was determined by the residual amount of bone calculated from computed tomography scans taken immediately after surgery and 1(More)
The purpose of this clinical follow-up study was to evaluate the success rate of autotransplantation of human premolars. In the period between 1982 and 1994, 46 premolars in 31 patients were transplanted. A long-term success rate of 97.5% with a mean follow-up period of 3.5 years was achieved. It seems to be justified, therefore, in selected cases, to(More)
OBJECTIVES The aims were: 1) to identify the guidelines available for management of dental invasive procedures in patients on antithrombotic drugs; 2) to assess their quality with the Appraisal of Guidelines for Research and Evaluation (AGREE) instrument; and 3) to summarize their conclusions and recommendations. STUDY DESIGN Systematic literature search(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate a recently developed preclinical injection and cavity preparation model in local anesthesia. Thirty-three dental students administered an inferior alveolar nerve block injection in the model, followed by preparation on a tooth. The injection was evaluated by three observers, and the feedback from the model was(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the definition of oral leukoplakia, proposed by the WHO in 2005 and taking into account a previously reported classification and staging system, including the use of a Certainty factor of four levels with which the diagnosis of leukoplakia can be established. In the period 1997-2012 a hospital-based population of(More)
OBJECTIVE To provide an empirical description of the relationship between the spread of head and neck infections, and the causal tooth. METHOD AND MATERIALS The hospital records of 155 patients presenting with odontogenic head and neck infections due to a single identifiable tooth from January 2000 to August 2011 were reviewed. The following data were(More)
