PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to present the clinical features of a case series of osteomas in the craniofacial region and to compare them with those described in the dental literatures. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective study of 18 patients diagnosed with osteomas in the craniofacial region was performed. The age, gender, location, symptoms,(More)
(ODF) originates from odonto-genic ectomesenchyme. ODF can be further divided into central (intraosseous) odontogenic fibroma (CODF) and peripheral (extraosseous) odontogenic fibroma (PODF) according to the anatomical sites involved. 1 The CODF is a rare odontogenic neoplasm. Regezi et al 2 were unable to identify any ODFs among 706 odonto-genic tumors(More)
PURPOSE This study evaluated the association between cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) and panoramic radiographs in the assessment of a superimposed relationship between the mandibular canal and impacted third molars. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study samples consisted of 175 impacted third molars from 131 patients who showed a superimposed relationship(More)
PURPOSE Diagnosis of osteoarthritis most commonly depends on clinical and radiographic findings. The present study attempted to observe the bony changes in temporomandibular joint (TMJ) patients from all age groups. MATERIALS AND METHODS The first-visit clinical records and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) data of 440 TMJs from 220 consecutive TMJ(More)
The author experienced 8 cases of pericoronal radiolucency involving an incomplete tooth crown that had not developed to form the cemento-enamel junction, and the underdeveloped crown sometimes appeared to be floating within the radiolucency radiographically. The first impression was that these cystic lesions had odontogenic keratocysts, but half of them(More)
A diode-pumped solid state (DPSS) laser emitting at 473 nm was used to test its influence on the degree of polymerization of composite resins. Eight composite resins were chosen and light cured with three different light-curing systems [a quartz–tungsten–halogen (QTH) lamp-based unit, a light-emitting diode (LED) unit, and a DPSS laser]. Polymerization(More)
