PURPOSE This study was performed to investigate the incidence and configuration of the bifid mandibular canal in a Korean population by using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging. MATERIALS AND METHODS CBCT images of 1933 patients (884 male and 1049 female) were evaluated using PSR-9000N and Alphard-Vega 3030 Dental CT units (Asahi Roentgen Ind.(More)
INTRODUCTION This article represents a new design of expander-spike expander-to correct transverse maxillary deficiency. This new type appliance is easy to fabricate, more hygienic, and less soft-tissue irritation because of elimination of acrylic plate. In addition, because of the position of mini-implant, it can provide a relatively parallel alveolar(More)
PURPOSE This study was performed to evaluate the feasibility of visualizing soft tissue lesions and vascular structures using contrast-enhanced cone-beam computed tomography (CE-CBCT) after the intravenous administration of a contrast medium in an animal model. MATERIALS AND METHODS CBCT was performed on six rabbits after a contrast medium was(More)
Primary intraosseous squamous cell carcinoma (PIOSCC) is a rare carcinoma, which arises within the jaws without connection to the oral mucosa and presumably develops from a remnant of odontogenic epithelium. We present a case of solid type PIOSCC in a 52-year-old male patient complaining of dull pain on his left lower molar. In this case, early stage PIOSCC(More)
