Chewing side preference is a factor that could effect prosthodontic treatment. The purpose of this study was to determine whether chewing side was another type of hemispheric lateralization comparable with footedness, handedness, eyedness and earedness. Chewing side preference was tested in 189 subjects of whom 84 were partially edentulous, 98 had a full(More)
Three implant impression techniques, using 3 different splinting materials, were assessed for accuracy in a laboratory model that simulated clinical practice. For group A, an autopolymerizing acrylic resin was used to splint transfer copings. In group B, a dual-cure acrylic resin was used, and for group C, plaster, which was also the impression material,(More)
A cephalometric study was conducted on 34 complete denture wearers to investigate the relationship between the anatomical structures commonly used to determine the occlusal plane and the facial skeletal shape. The results showed no correlation between the shape of the skeletal face, the gonial angle and the length of the mandible versus the location of the(More)
PURPOSE This study evaluated the effect of increasing occlusal vertical dimension (OVD) on the face height in completely dentate young adults. MATERIALS AND METHODS Faces of 22 subjects were photographed in a standardized manner in an anterior view. Sequential photographs were taken at intercuspation and clinical rest position, with four complete arch(More)
The effect of dentin pretreatment with Desensitizing Paste containing 8% arginine and calcium carbonate on the retention of zirconium oxide (Y-TZP) crowns was tested. Forty molar teeth were mounted and prepared using a standardized protocol. Y-TZP crowns were produced using computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD-CAM) technology. The 40(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the long-term outcome of a single-step ridge expansion osteotome procedure and implant placement combined with guided bone regeneration in patients presenting narrow maxillary alveolar ridges. MATERIALS AND METHODS During the period 1999 to 2010, 41 patients aged 19 to 77 years (18 males; 23 females) suffering from partial or full(More)
The reconstruction of edentulous patients with adequate bone volume and density by the use of bone graft and, subsequently, the placement of dental implants has become a viable treatment option with high predictability. According to many authors, maxillary antral cysts are one of the most common benign pathologies of the maxillary sinus, and they also(More)
This study aimed at determining whether the individual's chewing side preference is affected by local effects, produced by the presence of implant-supported restorations. The test group included 81 patients with partial implant-supported prosthesis. The control group included 108 subjects with no implants. All subjects went through a series of laterality(More)
A cephalometric study was conducted on 34 complete denture wearers to examine the relationship between the area of the mandible and the skeletal facial form, the area of the mandible and the gonial angle, and the area of the mandible and the length of the mandible. No significant correlation was found between the area of the mandible and the skeletal facial(More)
