Hyperparathyroidism is nowadays diagnosed early and asymptomatically with the improvements in routine biochemical tests and radiological procedures. The late bony complications of the disease have therefore started to decline rapidly. Brown tumours are one of the bony complications of hyperparathyroidism. The mandible is the predominantly affected site in(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this clinical study was to evaluate the complications associated with the different attachments used in implant-supported overdentures, including prosthetic problems and implant failures. A comparison of ball, bar and Locator (Zest Anchors, Inc, homepage, Escondido, CA, USA) attachments, in completely edentulous patients with two,(More)
The removal of an impacted maxillary third molar is an easy procedure for an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. The most commonly seen complications associated with this type of surgery are excessive hemorrhage, infection, pain, swelling, trismus, and root fractures. Although rarely encountered, unexpected complications may also arise during this procedure,(More)
Intraosseous lipoma is a benign tumor of the bone. It is mostly seen in the metaphyses of the long bones and calcaneus. There are few documented cases of intraosseous lipomas in the jaw. Clinically, the lesion is usually silent and radiologically it appears as a radiolucent area rarely including some radio-opacities. Diagnosis is based on clinical,(More)
We aimed to find out whether a single local injection of two different doses of thrombin peptide 508 (TP508) could accelerate consolidation of bone in sites of tibial distraction osteogenesis in rats. Forty-eight adult male Sprague-Dawley rats were divided equally (n=16 in each group) into controls (given saline alone), and two experimental groups, given(More)
Peripheral facial nerve paralysis (PFNP) after mandibular interventions has been reported in the literature. In most cases, paralysis begins immediately after the injection of the mandibular anesthesia, and duration of facial weakness is less than 12 hours. However, there are few documented cases of PFNP after maxillary dental or surgical procedures. A(More)
PURPOSE The propose of this article was to evaluate the risk factors associated with the survival rate of the dental implants. MATERIAL AND METHODS This retrospective study evaluated the survival rate of 940 implants placed at the Faculty of Dentistry, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Istanbul University, from January 2003 to January 2011.(More)
The extraction of mandibular third molars is a common dental procedure. The complications include hemorrhage, pain, dental fracture, the displacement of teeth or fragments, iatrogenic damage or luxation of the second molar, neurologic injuries, soft tissue damage, subcutaneous emphysema, trismus, swelling, infection, and iatrogenic mandibular fracture.(More)
This study evaluated the early hemostatic effects of a novel hemostatic agent (Ankaferd blood stopper [ABS]) during dental extractions in patients on antithrombotic therapy, without interruption or diminution of the medication. In total, 25 patients, who are on antithrombotic therapy and in need of simple dental extractions, were randomized into 2 groups.(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of the present study was to investigate the possible role of Ki-67 and argyrophilic nucleolar organizing regions (AgNOR) between the recurrent and nonrecurrent keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KCOTs). Another aim was to compare the correlation between these two markers. MATERIALS AND METHODS 22 KCOTs were evaluated retrospectively. The(More)
