Direct pulp capping (DPC) is coverage of exposed pulp by a biocompatible material after traumatic or carious exposure. The purpose of this procedure is to seal this spot against bacterial leakage, stimulate dentinal barrier formation, and maintain the vitality of the pulp. Several factors contribute to the consequence of this treatment, such as the kind of(More)
BACKGROUND Nitric oxide (NO) is one of the many chemical mediators involved in inflammatory processes. In addition to periapical inflammation, NO can have a role in periapical healing. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of aminoguanidine (AG) as a selective inhibitor of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) on the degree of healing(More)
BACKGROUND Decalcified freeze-dried bone allograft (DFDBA) may have the potential to enhance bone formation around dental implants. Our aim in this study was the evaluation and comparison of two types of DFDBA in treatment of dehiscence defects around Euroteknika(®) implants in dogs. METHODS In this prospective clinical trial animal study, all mandibular(More)
Lipoma is a common tumor of soft tissue. Its location on the oral mucosa is rare, representing 1% to 5% of benign oral tumors although it is the most mesenchymal tumor of the trunk and proximal por-tions of extremities. Lipoma of the oral cavity may occur in any region. The buccal mucosa, tongue, and floor of the mouth are among the common locations. The(More)
Lipoma is a benign mesenchymal tumor of fat with uncertain pathogenesis. Although the most common mesenchymal neoplasm in trunk and proximal portions of the extremities, it is rarely seen in the oral cavity. Oral lipomas are clinically soft, smooth-surfaced nodular masses that mostly are less than 3 cm in size. Typically the tumor is asymptomatic unless(More)
AIM The purpose of the current study was to examine the success rate of a revascularization treatment protocol involving canal space disinfection using copious irrigation, a triantibiotic dressing, and induction of a blood clot matrix in immature dog's teeth. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-six immature mongrel dog's teeth were divided into two experimental(More)
Integration of soft computing techniques in the development of agricultural expert information systems, decision support systems etc. to predict the response of the agricultural output parameters with reference to the input information to the system has helped a lot of farm stakeholders where the expertise is not available. One of the soft computing(More)
BACKGROUND The different growth mechanism and biologic behavior of the odontogenic keratocyst (OKC) compared to other odontogenic cysts might be related to the proliferating capacity of its epithelium. In this study, the aim was to evaluate and compare the distribution and staining intensity of P16 and cyclin D1 in OKC and unicystic ameloblastoma (UA). (More)
The interaction between hydrocolloids and solvent/cosolutes are the predominant factors determining their functional properties in food systems. In this research, the influence of different temperatures, salts and sugars were investigated on some molecular parameters of Balangu seed gum (BSG) as a new potential source of hydrocolloid. The results revealed(More)
BACKGROUND Most common impacted teeth are the mandibular third molars and decision about extraction of them is usually controversial. The presence of pericoronal pathologic changes is an acceptable reason for removal of impacted teeth. Differences in the proliferation rate and apoptosis of odontogenic epithelial cells may influence on the formation of(More)
