INTRODUCTION Ameloblastic fibro-odontoma is a rare, benign, asymptomatic tumor. The term ameloblastic fibro-odontoma was first used by Hooker in 1967 as a separate lesion from ameloblastic odontoma. CASE REPORT This case report describes an eleven years old female with large ameloblastic fibro-odontoma in the right maxillary sinus. CONCLUSION There is a(More)
Introduction: Bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO) of mandible is vastly used in treatment of mandibular deficiencies and discrepancies. Since this method could affect esthetic as well as function, evaluating these effects from various aspects is crucial. This study assessed the effects of this technique on the function of masseter muscle, jaw(More)
Adenoid ameloblastoma with dentinoid is a rare odontogenic tumor. Granular cell ameloblastoma also is a less common histological subtype of ameloblastoma. In this report, the patient was a 31-year-old male. The lesion was located in the right mandible and was unicystic with well-defined borders. The tumor tissue was showing a combination of follicular,(More)

While various complications could result after this surgery, the aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of BSSO surgery on electric activity and function of masseter muscle. 36 patients in need of mandibular(More)
BACKGROUND This study investigated the efficacy of low level laser therapy (LLLT) for managing alveolar osteitis (AO). MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixty patients with alveolar osteitis of mandibular third molars were randomly divided into three groups. In group 1, socket irrigation was followed by alvogyl placement, and the treatment was repeated 48 hours later.(More)
