OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate short-term bone level and stability/mobility measurement alterations at platform switched (PS) and standard platform (SP) implants placed in mandibular premolar/molar regions using a single-stage protocol. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixteen PS and 16 SP implants restorated with fixed prosthesis were included.(More)
PURPOSE To compare marginal bone loss, soft tissue conditions, and prosthetic outcomes of implants supporting mandibular and maxillary bar-retained overdentures. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 124 implants (80 in the mandible and 44 in the maxilla) were placed in 35 patients. Bar-retained overdentures were fabricated for each patient. Prosthetic(More)
BACKGROUND The interactions between torus and several factors such as age, gender, and dental status have not been studied comprehensively. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of gender on the mandibular cortical index (MCI) and to investigate a possible association between torus mandibularis (TM) and MCI. METHODS The study consisted of(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to compare ultrasonography (US) with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with respect to the diagnosis of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) internal derangements. STUDY DESIGN The study group consisted of 23 patients with a chief complaint of TMJ discomfort who were tentatively diagnosed by means of head-neck examination as having TMJ(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to explore effects of implant macrodesign and diameter on initial intraosseous stability and interface mechanical properties of immediately placed implants. MATERIAL AND METHOD Mandibular premolars of four fresh-frozen human cadavers were extracted. Ø 4.1/4.8 mm ITI TE, Ø 4.1 and 4.8 mm solid screw synOcta ITI(More)
BACKGROUND Necessity of keratinized tissues (KTs) for maintaining health around dental implants (DIs) remains as a controversial issue. PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of KT width (KTW) on peri-implant tissues by evaluating peri-implant clinical and inflammatory parameters. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty DIs were included in(More)
This case report describes the management of a late-referral case of periapically involved, traumatized immature permanent incisors by endodontic treatment and the use of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) apical plugs. A 10-year-old boy was referred to the clinic with a chief complaint of pain in his maxillary central incisors, which had experienced(More)
Inflammatory root resorption is a serious complication of dental trauma, which leads to progressive loss of the root structure. This report describes the treatment a previously traumatized young maxillary lateral incisor, severely affected by inflammatory root resorption. An 11-year-old boy presented with pain and mobility in his maxillary incisors which(More)
BACKGROUND Documentation of early loading of mandibular overdentures supported by different implant systems is scarce. PURPOSE This study aimed to compare the biologic and prosthetic outcome of mandibular overdentures supported by unsplinted early-loaded one- and two-stage oral implants after 5 years of function. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-eight(More)
Age estimation of living adult individuals can be accomplished with limited methods. Radiographic dental methods based on the pulpal narrowing with secondary dentin formation have been presented. In the present study, Kvaal et al.'s method, one of the radiographic dental age estimation methods, was applied to panoramic radiographs from Turkish individuals.(More)
