OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcome of bone grafts in cleft palate patients, thus assessing the amount of bone necessary to facilitate eruption-especially in the buccopalatal direction-of the permanent canine into the bone graft. STUDY DESIGN Computed tomography scans taken immediately postoperatively and 1 year postoperatively(More)
Ninety selected patients with a benign or malignant lesion in the oral cavity were treated by cryosurgery. A clinical study was carried out during a 6-year period to investigate the value of cryosurgery as supplemental or substitute therapy. Good results have been obtained in the treatment of small to moderate, superficially situated angiomas. Cryotherapy(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 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)
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)
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.

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)
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)
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)
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)
