OBJECTIVES To evaluate isotretinoin effect on alveolar repair after tooth extraction of maxillary incisor and serum calcium levels in rats. STUDY DESIGN Wistar rats (60-day-old) were assigned to control (CG, n = 12) and experimental (EG, n = 20) groups. EG received daily isotretinoin (7.5 mg/kg) for 30 days before surgery and until euthanasia, 7, 21, 28,(More)
The aim of this review was to answer the question: Which is the best procedure to follow when there is tooth involvement in the line of mandibular angle fracture, taking into consideration the occurrence of postoperative infection? A systematic literature review using the PubMed (MEDLINE), Virtual Health Library (VHL), Cochrane Library, and Scopus databases(More)
The restoration of mandibular bone defects with non-vascularized bone grafts depends on the diagnosis, anatomical site, extent of the defect, and the patient's age, as well as the surgeon's experience. The aim of this study was to perform a systematic literature review on mandibular reconstruction for segmental mandibular bone defects using non-vascularized(More)
This article presents a case report of an adult patient with chronic sinusitis related to the presence of two erupted ectopic teeth located atypically in the maxillary sinus roof/orbital floor after a long latency period associated with childhood facial trauma. This article aims to show the treatment of chronic sinusitis of odontogenic origin by surgical(More)
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is rich in growth factors, target-specific polypeptides that play a role in cell proliferation and differentiation and can thus encourage wound repair. This study sought to assess the effects of PRP on new bone formation in a sample of 25 patients with clinical indications for extraction of all four impacted third molars with(More)
This study aimed to answer the following question: What is the best treatment option for fractures of the dentate portion of the mandible in paediatric patients when considering the occurrence of postoperative complications? A systematic literature review was done using the PubMed, Scopus, and Cochrane Library databases, and 1186 articles on the topic were(More)
This longitudinal clinical study investigated the differences in the masticatory function (MF), satisfaction and oral health related quality of life (OHRQoL) between atrophic patients (AP) and non-atrophic patients (NAP) before and after rehabilitation with mandibular overdenture (MO). Twenty-six complete denture (CD) wearers were categorized into two(More)
In mandibular edentulous patients, treatment based on immediate loading with rigid splinting in the mandible is well accepted; however, it is cost and time dependent, which sometimes limits this type of rehabilitation. To overcome these problems, the technique of immediate loading using a semirigid splinting extension system has been developed. Its(More)
A systematic review was conducted to evaluate the success rate of dental implants placed in the incisive canal region and the complications related to this procedure. An electronic search was performed in the PubMed, Scopus, and Web of Science databases. Articles reporting the incisive canal deflation technique or neurovascular bundle lateralization(More)
