The current study attempted to investigate the expression and functional characterization of amino acid transport system L in HTB-41 human submaxillary salivary gland epidermoid(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the clinical application of resorbable and nonresorbable plates for correction of facial asymmetry. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 272 patients who had undergone orthognathic surgery were enrolled. The site of osteotomy was fixed using a nonresorbable plate in group I (n = 152) and using a(More)
New bone formation around US III OSSTEM implants after early and immediate loading was evaluated in this study. Three premolars and the first and second molars were first removed from the left mandible of five dogs. At 3 weeks after extraction of the teeth in the left mandible, the corresponding teeth in the right mandibles were removed. After 12 weeks of(More)

PATIENTS AND METHODS BioSorb FX biodegradable plates and screws and titanium miniplates were used in 91 patients (65 males and 26 females; age range 11 to 69 years) for the treatment of mandibular(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the augmentation volume of a sinus graft according to the time and graft materials based on cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans and to assess efficacy of a bioabsorbable membrane. METHODS Fourteen patients were investigated, and volumetric analysis was performed using OnDemand 3DTM software(More)
OBJECTIVES Bisphosphonates (BP) are widely used in medicine for inhibiting bone resorption; however bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) is a major side effect of BP. To date, there have been no specific reports on the incidence of BRONJ among Koreans. This study investigated the preliminary results from a nationwide survey of BRONJ in(More)
The posttraumatic complications of jaw fractures related to jaw function and facial deformity include nonunion, malunion, malocclusion, temporomandibular joint dysfunction and facial asymmetry. This report presents cases referred to our department for revision of malunion and malocclusion following inadequate reduction of jaw fractures. Three patients with(More)
Inferior alveolar nerve block obtained maximum anesthetic effect using a small dose of local anesthetic agent, which also has low a complication incidence. Complications of an inferior alveolar nerve block include direct nerve damage, bleeding, trismus, temporary facial nerve palsy, and etc. Among them, the major iatrogenic complication is dental needle(More)
