The paper presents computer-aided methods that allocate a dental implant and suggest its size, during the pre-operative planning stage, in conformance with introduced optimization criteria and established clinical requirements. Based on computed tomography data of the jaw and prosthesis anatomy, single tooth cases are planned for the best-suited implant(More)
Crown contours represent a group of characteristics critical for the longevity and success of dental restorations. This article presents the theories that have been developed about crown contours, describes each feature in detail, and clarifies potential interrelationships with all components of the mouth. When identified early, crown contours can be(More)
Glass-ceramic scaffolds containing Mg have shown recently the potential to enhance the proliferation, differentiation, and biomineralization of stem cells in vitro, property that makes them promising candidates for dental tissue regeneration. An additional property of a scaffold aimed at dental tissue regeneration is to protect the regeneration process(More)
Orthodontic prosthetics is dealing with dental deformity problems that may occur in a variety of oral cavity diseases and is trying to fix the aesthetic behavior using appropriate surgical operations or therapies.

Masseteric silent periods have been evoked in a group of normal subjects under a standardized system and under nonstandardized conditions. In the designed system, head position, electrode placement, bite force, tap force, direction of tap, and surface zone of tap force delivery were controlled. Analysis of data confirmed the hypothesis that standardization(More)
