Squamous cell carcinoma is the most common form of oral cancers in adults and is related to risk factors such as smoking and alcohol consumption. CASE PRESENTATION In this article, we present three case reports of oral squamous cell carcinomas with(More)
To investigate the frequency, prevalence, distribution, sex differences and characteristics of supernumerary teeth in a referred non-syndromic Turkish population. A total of 5200 panoramic radiographs of patients who presented at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology from July 2008 to August 2010 were evaluated. Demographic variables (age and(More)
Nasal septal perforation may present with various symptoms. Perforations may be surgically closed or managed by obturation, inserting a prosthesis. We used a silicon septal button in the management of nasal septal perforation. In the follow-up period, although the insertion of the nasal septal button alleviated epistaxis, whistling during inspiration, and(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the three non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIDs) Diclofenac potassium, Etodolac and Naproxen sodium in relation to pain, swelling and trismus following impacted third molar surgery. STUDY DESIGN The study was a randomized and a double-blinded study which included 42 healthy young individuals with impacted third molars and(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of an 810-nm diode laser for treatment of benign oral soft tissue lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS Treatment with the 810-nm diode laser was applied to a group of eighteen patients with pathological frenulum and epulis fissuratum; five patients with oral lichen planus, oral leukoplakia, and mucous membrane(More)
BACKGROUND Short implants have become popular in the reconstruction of jaws, especially in cases with limited bone height. Shorter implants, those with locking tapers and plateau root shapes, tend to have longer survival times. We retrospectively investigated the cumulative survival rates of Bicon short implants (<8 mm) according to patient variables over a(More)
The foramen tympanicum is a persistent anatomic formation of the temporal bone due to a defect in ossification normal bone physiology in neonatal or postnatal period. This study determined the occurrence and location of the foramen tympanicum in a Turkish sample using cone-beam computed tomography. Scans of 370 sites in 185 patients were retrospectively(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of present study was to determine the effects of conjugated linoleic acid enriched milk on alveolar bone loss, hyperglycaemia, oxidative stress and apoptosis in ligature-induced periodontal disease in diabetic rat model. METHODS Wistar rats were divided into six experimental groups: 1; non-ligated (NL, n = 6) group, 2; ligature only (LO,(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to assess the superior semicircular canal (SSCC) morphology and to determine whether superior semicircular canal dehiscence (SSCD) correlates with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) symptoms. STUDY DESIGN Clinical data and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans of 175 patients were retrospectively examined by 2 observers.(More)
Purpose: To investigate the effect of Ankaferd blood stopper (ABS) on early bone healing of extraction sockets in rats. Method: Twenty-eight male Wistar rats were divided into four groups. The maxillary right first molar tooth of the rats was extracted under general anesthesia. Two groups (C-1, n = 6 and C-2, n = 6) received saline solutions in the(More)
