Oral squamous papilloma is a benign proliferation of the stratified squamous epithelium, which results in a papillary or verrucous exophytic mass induced by human papilloma virus (HPV). These oral mucosa lesions are most often asymptomatic and have small progression. Laser assisted surgery is common nowadays with several advantages including successful(More)
BACKGROUND Tooth agenesis is the most common dental anomaly which causes serious problems in humans. Many theories were asserted to explain the main etiologic factor of this anomaly, and genetic factors were considered as primary reasons. AIMS The aim of the present study was to evaluate the relationship between incisor and premolar tooth agenesis and to(More)
Dentigerous cyst is a type of odontogenic cysts and generally occurs in the ages of twenties or thirties. Dentigerous cyst always includes a tooth which cannot complete the eruption process and occurs around the crown by the fluid accumulation between the layers of enamel organ. In rare cases, dentigerous cyst occurs in the first decade of life and develops(More)
BACKGROUND An ideal root canal obturation requires a complete dentinal wall adaptation of sealer and Gutta-percha combinations without any gap formations. AIMS The aim of the study was to evaluate the dentinal wall adaptation ability of MTA Fillapex root canal sealer using stereo electron microscope (SEM). METHODS Twenty-four, single-rooted, human(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to determine the prevalence of supernumerary teeth with by evaluating a large group of adult patients in Turkey and to investigate the characteristics of supernumerary teeth with their complications and treatment options. STUDY DESIGN This descriptive and retrospective study was carried out in 7348 adult patients(More)
The aim of this report was to present the long-term clinical and radiographic outcomes of a case including severe unintentional extrusion of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA). An 11-year-old boy was referred with a previously traumatized permanent central incisor which was temporarily treated by using calcium hydroxide root canal filling material. Since(More)
Comprehensive knowledge about the variations of morphology and anatomy of the roots and root canal systems in permanent teeth is an important factor to reach successful outcome. The aim of this case report was to explain nonsurgical endodontic treatment and long term follow-up of a mandibular second premolar with unusual root and root canal morphology.(More)
Horizontal root fractures are rare when compared to other types of injuries, with a reported incidence rate ranging between 0.5%-7.0%. Fixation of teeth with splints has been recommended as the conservative treatment for horizontal root fractures, given that the pulp usually remains vital in such cases and spontaneous healing with no treatment has been(More)
BACKGROUND During the apexification procedure for teeth with open apices, mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) may be unintentionally extruded. The aim of the present study was the retrospective evaluation of the healing of periapical lesions in permanent incisor teeth with open apices after the unintentional extrusion of MTA. METHODS The clinical and(More)
Supernumerary teeth may affect the tooth eruption negatively if they occur on the eruption way, and the treatment choice is usually the extraction to prevent the impaction of adjacent permanent teeth. CBCT enables clear and three dimensional images, and it may be helpful to determine the exact location and to measure the dimensions of the supernumerary(More)
