Condylar fractures account for 25-35% of mandibular fractures and deserve a special consideration apart from rest of the mandible due to their anatomical differences and healing potential. Previous clinical and biomechanical studies have recommended using two miniplates for fixation of condyle fractures. Two miniplates require a certain size of the proximal(More)

INTRODUCTION Ameloblastic fibro-odontoma (AFO) is a quite rare, mixed odontogenic tumour generally seen in the early stages of life. Frequent signs of this tumour are asymptomatic swelling, delayed tooth eruption and mixed radiological appearance within well-defined borders. Management of the lesion includes enucleation of the tumour and long-term(More)
Secondary alveolar bone grafting is a well established technique in the management of patients with cleft lip and alveolus. The goals of bone grafting determine the selection of grafting material such as cortical or cancellous, membranous or endochondral. In addition, vascularity, host-bed, overall physiologic status of the patient, propensity of infection(More)
