The study evaluated secular trends in dental development during a period of 30 years, correlation between dental and chronological age in Istria and the littoral region of Croatia. The sample consisted of 1000 panoramic radiographs of children, aged 6-16 years (mean 10.0±1.8), taken in the period 1977-1979 (N=500; 243 females) and 2007-2009 (N=500; 299(More)
Comparative measurements were made of 144 orthopantomographs in 50 patients with successful and 94 patients with unsuccessful inferior alveolar nerve block anesthesia. The results show that the bony lingula is prominent in 28.5% of all patients, or in 56.0% of those with unsuccessful anesthesia. The variables mandibular notch vs. mandibular foramen (MN-MF)(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the development of the mandibular third molar and its relation to chronological age. The evaluated material consisted of 979 orthopantomograms of patients of Croatian Caucasian origin aged between 5.7 and 14.6 years. Third molar developmental stages were evaluated according to the stages proposed by Nolla. The(More)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory disease of unknown etiology involving the central nervous system. Certain clinical manifestations affect the oro-facial region. Three in particular should be of interest to the dentist: trigeminal neuralgia, sensory neuropathy of the trigeminal nerve and facial palsy. The aim of this study was to determine the oral(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to examine the correlation between variables that determine the position of the third molar (M3) and correlation between the pattern of facial growth and examined variables. MATERIALS AND METHODS Material for the study consisted of 130 panoramic radiographs and lateral radiographs of subjects' heads in whom(More)
The aim of the study was to investigate different factors that affect the level of patient's general satisfaction with maxillary and mandibular complete dentures (CDs) using a multivariate analysis. A total of 100 CD wearers participated in this study. There were 46 men (37-77 years old; mean age 62.6 +/- 9.2) and 54 women (34-77 years old; mean age 60.9(More)

Odontomas as a group are the most common odontogenic neoplasms. They are mixed lesions containing fully formatted dental tissues, both epithelial and mesenchymal, and are usually found during a routine radiographic examination or as a factor in noneruption. Odontomas can be divided into two types: the complex and the compound odontoma. Both types are(More)

Our aim was to measure the forces that fracture teeth during extraction based on the effectiveness of the extraction forceps, and to compare them with data collected about forces applied to extracted teeth that did not fracture. We studied 208 patients whose teeth fractured during both the standard and our new method of extraction: maxillary incisors (n=79)(More)
