BACKGROUND/AIMS Proliferation and differentiation of osteoblast-like cells are regulated by complex interactions among systemic hormones, cytokines, and local growth factors. The success of oral rehabilitation using biomaterial implants depends on the growth of osteoblasts and their adhesivity to the surface of the implant. The study aimed to investigate(More)
We present the case of an 8-year-old patient with a juvenile ossifying fibroma in the right mandibular angle and a radicular cyst in the left mandibular angle, which produced a major swelling at the level of the mandibular angles and prevented the correct eruption of the lower first molars. After the clinical and radiological (panoramic X-ray and dental(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Osteoblasts are classically considered to play an important role during bone tissue development, and to be involved in the formation of mineralized bone matrix. Recent reports have suggested that they can also exert some activities directly associated with the immune system (cytokine synthesis and antigen presentation). Moreover, some(More)
PURPOSE The objective was to analyze the factors that influence the stability of dental implants at 12 weeks after implant placement as measured by resonance frequency analysis using the Osstell system. MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective clinical study was performed in 235 implants placed in 93 patients at the Oral Surgery and Implantology Clinic of(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The antigen phenotype of human osteoblast-like cells suggests that they are related to other cellular populations and may also have immunologic functions in common. METHODS Flow cytometry and transmission electron microscopy were used to show the phagocytotic activity of osteoblast-like cells in culture. The allogeneic stimulation of T(More)
The objective of this investigative study is to provide information on the type of public postgraduate training in oral surgery currently being taught in Spain. A descriptive study is made relating to the theoretical and practical syllabuses of the different Masters, through questionnaires answered by students who had previously completed the postgraduate(More)
Morphological features, bone nodule formation and alkaline phosphatase activity are currently used to identify osteoblasts. CD10 (cALLa antigen) is a glycoprotein with endopeptidase activity and it is present on the surface of many cell types. We have studied the expression of CD10 in osteoblast-like cells by immunocytochemistry and flow cytometry in order(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate in vitro the effect of cavity preparation with microburs and diamond-coated ultrasonic tips on the microleakage and marginal fit of six end-root filling materials. STUDY DESIGN. The following materials were assessed: amalgam (Amalcap), zinc oxide eugenol (IRM), glass ionomer (Vitrebond), compomer (Cavalite), mineral particle aggregate(More)
The aim of this randomized controlled clinical trial was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of pregabalin administered pre- and postoperatively in patients with pain and swelling due to the surgical removal of impacted lower third molars. The final study sample comprised 60 volunteers (23 males and 37 females). Group 1 (n = 30) received 75 mg oral(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to compare levels of bacterial contamination of autogenous bone collected when using low-speed drilling, a back-action chisel, and a bone filter. MATERIALS AND METHODS Bone tissue samples were taken from 31 patients who underwent surgical extraction of their third lower molars. Before surgical removal of the molar, bone(More)
