OBJECTIVE Following publication of the first reports of osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) in patients receiving bisphosphonates in 2003, a call for national multidisciplinary guidelines based upon a systematic review of the current evidence was made by the Canadian Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (CAOMS) in association with national and(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this investigation was to assess the frequency of complications of third molar surgery, both intraoperatively and postoperatively, specifically for patients 25 years of age or older. MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective study evaluated 3,760 patients, 25 years of age or older, who were to undergo third molar surgery by oral and(More)
In 2003, the first reports describing osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) in patients receiving bisphosphonates (BP) were published. These cases occurred in patients with cancer receiving high-dose intravenous BP; however, 5% of the cases were in patients with osteoporosis receiving low-dose bisphosphonate therapy. We present the results of a systematic review(More)
PURPOSE Estrogen has been shown to have a modulating effect on cartilage thickness. This investigation was performed to determine the effects of estrogen supplementation on cartilage thickness, cellular proliferation, and type II and X collagen production in skeletally mature rat cartilage, both in an organ culture and cell culture system. MATERIALS AND(More)
PURPOSE Because the morphology of the temporomandibular joint is thought to control movements of the mandible during mastication, bilateral fractures of the condylar process should disrupt masticatory patterns. The purposes of this study were 1) to document changes in masticatory patterns after such fractures, and 2) to determine whether and when normal(More)
PURPOSE The objective of this investigation was to evaluate the adaptations that occur in the masticatory system after treatment of bilateral fractures of the mandibular condylar process. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty-two patients (15 men and seven women) with bilateral condylar process fractures treated by open reduction and rigid internal fixation (n =(More)
PURPOSE The study goal was to evaluate the comparative outcomes of patients treated with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) total joint prostheses, using either the Christensen prosthesis (TMJ Inc, Golden, CO) (CP) or the TMJ Concepts prosthesis (TMJ Concepts Inc, Camarillo, CA; formerly Techmedica Inc) (TP). PATIENTS AND METHODS Forty-five consecutive(More)
Although fractures of the frontal sinus are infrequent (2-15% of victims of facial trauma), because of their proximity to the brain and eyes, the consequences of their management may have a significant impact on the patient. For frontal sinus injuries that affect the nasofrontal ducts or posterior wall, obliteration is indicated. Although frontal sinus(More)
The focus of this article is to provide the oral and maxillofacial surgeon with an overview of some of the recent information and computer technologies available in the marketplace as they relate to diagnostic imaging, implantology, orthognathic surgery, and craniofacial surgery. In so doing, the author hopes to highlight the various advantages and(More)
