OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine whether the results of fractal analysis can be used as criteria for midpalatal suture maturation evaluation. METHODS The study included 131 subjects aged over 18 years of age (range 18.1-53.4 years) who underwent cone-beam computed tomography. Skeletonized images of the midpalatal suture were obtained(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the isolation and characterization of multipotent human periodontal ligament (PDL) stem cells and to assess their ability to differentiate into bone, cartilage, and adipose tissue. METHODS PDL stem cells were isolated from 7 extracted human premolar teeth. Human PDL cells were expanded in culture,(More)
OBJECTIVE We compared the skeletal and dental changes that resulted from the use of two methods of intermaxillary fixation (IMF)-miniscrews and surgical archwire-in 74 adult patients who had Class III malocclusion and were treated with the same orthognathic surgical procedure at a hospital in Korea. METHODS All the patients underwent Le Fort I osteotomy(More)
J Korean Assoc Oral Maxillofac Surg 2012;38:96-100) Objectives: This study sought to evaluate trabecular changes in the mandible using fractal analysis and to explain the transient osteopenia related to rapid orthodontic tooth movement after orthognathic surgery. Materials and Methods: Panoramic radiographs were taken of 26 patients who underwent bilateral(More)
Multi-element doping of graphene could potentially provide functionalities that are not available in the single-element doping approach, but it has not been actively studied so far. Carrying out first-principles calculations, we study the structural, electronic, and transport properties of B-P edge-co-doped armchair graphene nanoribbons (aGNRs). We find(More)
It was recently shown that nitrogen-doped graphene (NG) can exhibit both p- and n-type characters depending on the C-N bonding nature, which represents a significant bottleneck for the development of graphene-based electronics. Based on first-principles calculations, we herein scrutinize the correlations between the atomic and electronic structures of NG(More)
