The goal of this study was to assess the effect of the intermittent combination of an antiresorptive agent (calcitonin) and an anabolic agent (vitamin D3) on treating the detrimental effects of Type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM) on mandibular bone formation and growth. Forty 3-week-old male Wistar rats were divided into four groups: the control group (normal(More)
Imidacloprid, a neonicotinoid pesticide, was used extensively to control whitefly (Bemisia tabaci) on tomato crop worldwide. Current study aimed to determine residue amounts of imidacloprid in tomato fruits after different time intervals of application and to evaluate their detrimental effects on white albino rats. Results revealed that the initial deposit(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate the effects exerted by the acidulated fluoride gel on stainless steel and nickel-titanium (Ni-Ti) orthodontic wires. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty stainless steel and Ni-Ti orthodontic archwires were distributed into forty archwires used for in vitro study and twenty for in situ study. Fluoride was applied(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess in vitro the quantitative and qualitative debonding behavior of the AEZ debonding plier, compared to shear debonding force, in debonding orthodontic metal brackets. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-two extracted premolars bonded with metal brackets were randomly divided into two equal groups according to the type of simulated debonding(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective was to compare dentofacial characteristics of Class I malocclusion in Saudi and Japanese adult females. MATERIALS AND METHODS Lateral cephalograms of 50 Saudi adult female and 50 Japanese adult female (18-35-year-old) were obtained. All patients were skeletal Class I, angle Class I malocclusion, arch length discrepancy (-10-10(More)
OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to assess the effect of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) on the craniofacial growth and skeletal maturation using the STZ-DM rat model. DESIGN Experimental T1DM was induced in 3-week-old male Wistar rats by a single dose of 60 mg/kg body weight of streptozotocin (STZ). Lateral and dorsoventral X-rays of the head were(More)
OBJECTIVES Understanding morphological changes and mineral content of tooth hard tissues may influence dental treatment. In this study, the effect of Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM) on tooth structure was examined. METHODS Experimental T1DM was induced in 3-week old male Wistar rats (n=10) by a single dose of 60mg/kg body weight of Streprozotocin. All(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the accuracy of using routine 2-dimensional (2D) radiographs (panoramic and periapical) when evaluating the position of orthodontic temporary anchorage devices (mini-implants) in the maxilla, and to compare the results to 3-dimensional cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). METHODS This cross-sectional study was conducted at King(More)
