BACKGROUND The psychosocial adaptation of patients who had undergone a resection of the maxilla for cancer of the maxillary antrum and/or hard palate with the placement of an obturator prosthesis to restore speech and eating function was studied. METHODS Forty-seven patients were interviewed who had a maxillectomy with an obturator prosthesis at Memorial(More)
This study observed the effect of various toothpastes on a hybrid composite resin to determine the difference in surface roughness as measured by a profilometer. Slurries (100 gm dentifrice/100 gm H2O) of eight toothpastes were tested by brushing composite resin samples 20,000 times and recording changes in surface smoothness with a profile meter. The(More)
Two patients are described, each of whom developed multiple eruptive lesions on sun-exposed areas within days after starting benoxaprofen therapy. The lesions were 2- to 5-mm papules suggestive of syringomas, and microscopically showed squamous metaplasia of eccrine ducts and focal necrosis of eccrine keratinocytes as well as prominent eccrine hyperplasia.(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM There is a need for a quick, objective, quantitative sensory test of the mandibular inferior alveolar nerve to assess sensory dysfunction due to trauma, infection, or disease. PURPOSE This study evaluated the reliability and reproducibility of a commercially available electrodiagnostic quantitative sensory nerve conduction threshold(More)
Positioning of the ocular component within an orbital prosthesis must simulate conversational gaze. Using osseointegrated implants and an associated superstructure, a fixed reference point can be established for positioning an ocular prosthesis. This method can simplify the laboratory procedure and obviate the need for ocular component repositioning in(More)
