It is unclear whether osteoporosis itself is a main risk factor for delayed wound healing after tooth extraction in humans. In this study, we evaluated the association between experience of delayed wound healing after last tooth extraction and self-reported kyphosis, with the possibility of having vertebral fractures, in Japanese patients. Among the 1,504(More)
OBJECTIVE The cortical width below the mental foramen of the mandible determined from panoramic radiographs is a useful screening tool for identifying elderly individuals with a low skeletal bone mineral density (BMD). However, whether the mandible cortical width (MCW) is useful for identifying a low skeletal BMD in men and women of 40 years or younger is(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate the association of the shape of the mandibular cortex on panoramic radiographs with the risk of an osteoporosis diagnosis without prevalent fractures and with the risk of osteoporotic fractures in Japanese men and women. SUBJECTS AND METHODS One thousand and twenty-one subjects aged 40-89 years, who(More)
Introduction: Aortic calcification seen on lateral radiographs might be an independent predictor of osteoporosis in the elderly. It is not clear whether the presence of carotid artery calcification (CAC) on dental panoramic radiographs (DPRs) is associated with osteoporosis. We examined the association between CAC on DPRs and a history of osteoporosis(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess the association between the cortical shape of the mandible, as detected on panoramic radiographs, and trabecular bone structure, as assessed by cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), in Japanese adults. Panoramic radiographs and CBCT images of the mandibles of 50 subjects (18 men, 32 women), aged 45–86 years, were(More)
Some vertebral fractures come to clinical attention but most do not. This cross-sectional survey aimed to clarify the associations of self-reported height loss and kyphosis with vertebral fractures. We enrolled 407 women aged 60-92 years who visited our orthopaedic clinic between June and August 2014 in our study. Inclusion criteria were lateral radiography(More)
(a) Third sentence of the 2nd paragraph should read, Conversely, subjects with a severely eroded cortex had a significantly higher trabecular bone volume fraction than those with a normal (P \ 0.001) or mildly to moderately eroded cortex (P = 0.001); however, no significant difference was observed between subjects with a normal cortex and those with a(More)
OBJECTIVES We investigated the association among diagnosed osteoporosis, osteoporotic fractures, and carotid artery calcification (CAC) detected on panoramic radiographs. Additionally, we assessed whether osteoporosis or fractures could be predicted by an incidental finding of CAC. STUDY DESIGN One thousand twenty-one patients participated in this study.(More)
We herein report a child with Garré osteomyelitis caused by an infected dentigerous cyst. The patient was a 4-year-old boy in whom detailed examination showed swelling of the right mandibular molar region. The swelling was accompanied by tenderness and trismus between the left cheek and submandibular region, the face was asymmetric, and there was diffuse(More)
