A histological study was conducted to evaluate the effects of fibrin adhesive material (FAM) application on periodontal healing in seven experimental dogs. Bilateral class III furcation defects were surgically created at the second and third premolars, then orthodontic wires were placed around the teeth to induce periodontitis. Six weeks later, the wires(More)
The primary teeth of four dogs were treated using either a conventional formocresol or electrosurgical technique following pulpotomy. Pulps of the treated teeth were evaluated histologically for the presence of inflammation, fibrosis, necrosis, resorption, and reparative dentin formation. Results indicated that conventional formocresol pulpotomy technique(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess the seeding of fibroblast-like cells to promote periodontal healing in artificial fenestration defects in a dog. Fibroblast-like cells were cultured by incubating regenerated periodontal ligament tissue, that had been surgically taken, underneath a Teflon membrane. Fenestration defects were surgically induced on the(More)
OBJECTIVE In jawbones, ameloblastomas and odontogenic keratocysts share many clinical features in common such as aggressiveness, high recurrence rates and radical management options. Understanding the pathogenesis and biological aspects of these tumors would improve the success of diagnose and treatment procedures. The aim of this study was to exhibit the(More)
The odontogenic myxoma is a rare, benign, but locally invasive tumour of the jaws. Radiographically, it is a bone destroying lesion and has ill-defined borders. Histological characteristics are spindle and stellate-shaped tumour cells and a distinct myxomatous stroma. Bony islands that represent residual trabeculae are found scattered throughout the lesion.(More)
Normal human palatal epithelium is an orthokeratinizing tissue with a well-developed stratum corneum. Several cytological and histological studies showed that when the palate covered by a denture fully or partially, keratinization of the mucosa changes. The results of some studies suggested that keratinization changes from orthokeratosis to parakeratosis,(More)
The regeneration of periodontal supporting tissues lost as a result of disease could be accomplished by repopulating the exposed root surfaces with cells originating from periodontal ligament. Thus, we aimed to assess the seeding of cells derived from regenerated periodontal ligament (RPL) to promote the regeneration in artificial furcation defects of a(More)
OBJECTIVES recently, the role of antioxidant enzymes in wound healing and their therapeutic potential has been a subject of interest in medical sciences. However there is restricted knowledge on the results of topical application, optimal therapeutic dosage and carrier types. The purpose of this study was to investigate the wound healing response of dental(More)
This research aims to give a new insight to the relationship between host local immune response and the biological behaviour of the tumor by evaluating of intratumoral natural killer (NK) cells and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNFalpha) expressions in oral squamous cell carcinomas. New paraffin sections of the deepest parts of the 46 cases of oral squamous(More)
