A rare finding of unilateral heterotopia of a mandibular third molar was most probably caused by primary and total dislocation of the tooth base. Other possible causative factors, such as a lack of space between the mandibular second molar and the mandibular ramus or a disproportion between the base and the direction of growth of the third molar, have been(More)
Periodontal disease in Down's syndrome (DS) population seems to be a more common and serious problem than caries. The aim of this study was to assess the state of periodontal structures in patients with DS. The Community Periodontal Index of Treatment Needs was used for periodontal status assessment in 71 DS subjects aged 9-34 years. A control group(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to analyze morphological, chemical, and crystallographic changes of bone tissue after osteotomy performed with an erbium:yttrium-aluminium-garnet (Er:YAG) laser and a low speed pilot drill. MATERIALS AND METHODS Bone blocks were prepared from porcine ribs, and on each block, two tunnel preparations were performed(More)
The purpose of this study was to objectively evaluate the stability of dental implants by use of resonance frequency analysis (RFA). In this study, 60 Nobel Replace Tapered Groovy implants were placed in the premolar region of the maxilla in 60 patients. Thirty implants were placed immediately after tooth extraction and 30 implants were placed in healed(More)
Literature data indicates that measurement of certain salivary constituents might serve as a useful diagnostic/prognostic tool in the patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). In 24 patients with OSCC (60 +/- 2.5 yrs) and in 24 controls (24 +/- 3.7 yrs) we have determined levels of salivary magnesium, calcium, copper, chloride, phosphate,(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to (i) obtain the force-related interferometric patterns of loaded dental implant-abutment assemblies differing in diameter and brand using digital holographic interferometry (DHI) and (ii) determine the influence of implant diameter on the extent of load-induced implant deformation by quantifying and comparing the(More)
Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a T-cell mediated disease directed to a still unknown antigen, which may affect oral mucosa. The aim of this study was to determine whether differences in anxiety, depression and stress could be seen in patients with OLP in acute stage and in remission, as well as in comparison with healthy control subjects. The study included 50(More)
The application of light for processing materials was first described by Arristophanes in his comedy ''The clouds“ 423 B.C. In the 2500 years that passed until the laser was invented, light had been used both for processing material and for medical purposes in various ways. But only the laser has paved the path for widespread therapeutic use of optical(More)
In the aetiology of maxillofacial injuries, car accidents, violence, sports injuries and lately war injuries are frequently mentioned. The purpose of this study was to exhibit and analyse types of jaw injuries on bodies exhumed from massive and individual graves located in regions temporarily occupied during the War in Croatia that lasted from 1991 to 1995.(More)
This study was designed to assess the impact of the surgical removal of a mandibular third molar on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in the postoperative period. Data was obtained from 101 patients who had undergone 105 surgical procedures. Only one mandibular third molar was removed per visit. The inclusion criterion for surgical procedures was(More)
