AIM The study evaluates the repair of residual alveolar cleft through secondary bone graft, consisting in the transplantation of autologous bone to restore the continuity of the maxillary arch and achieve normal functioning and esthetics. METHODS During 2001-2002, 15 patients (age range 9-26 years; 7 males, 8 females) were submitted to secondary bone(More)
AIM The purpose of the present study is to investigate the relationship between dental occlusion and physical performance using the Ergo-jump platform, and to highlight connections, if any. METHODS For the purpose of this research, 30 patients suffering from cervico-facial pathology and 10 without temporomandibular joint dysfunction were selected from(More)
BACKGROUND The use of carbon fiber posts allows morpho-functional restoration of endodontically treated teeth with an assembly of materials of a modulus of elasticity similar to that of dentin. The study clinically evaluated the percentage of survival of dental elements treated and reconstructed with endocanal carbon fiber posts. METHODS At the Dentistry(More)
BACKGROUND Cranio-cervico-mandibular disorders can cause disturbances in posture. Stabilimetry measures spatio-temporal variations in the center of body pressure and evaluates the mechanisms of maintenance of balance. The study used a stabilimetric platform to evaluate posture changes in patients with cranio-cervico-mandibular disorders before and after(More)
The study provides a framework for ethical medical conduct. A number of articles of International Law, the Italian Constitution, the Penal Code and the Medical Code of Conduct have therefore been taken into consideration. Art. 32 of the Italian Constitution, relating to the ''right to health'' is examined, paying particular attention to certain parts, and(More)
AIM Kabuki make-up Syndrome is so named because of the characteristic facies of the affected patient. The face is similar to a Kabuki actor's mask. The main aim of this report was to describe the oral features in Kabuki Syndrome, focusing on the tooth anomalies. PATIENTS AND METHODS Five subjects with Kabuki Syndrome, identified by the Child(More)
The aim of this in vivo study was to compare the precision of control of jaw closing forces through implants versus natural teeth. Ten partially dentate subjects with fixed implant prostheses in their mandibles took part in the study. A force transducer was used to assess the ability of the subjects to follow pre-determined jaw closing cycles. The error in(More)
AIM The purpose of the present paper is to carry out an SEM investigation into the adhesive cementation of quartz fibre posts in canals treated with endodontic cements containing or not containing eugenol. METHODS Sixteen selected tooth roots were subdivided into 4 groups and prepared with the step-back technique. Group A, without canal filling and with a(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between craniomandibular disorders and postural alterations using baropodometric examination. METHODS All tests were carried out in the Department of Dentistry at Sassari University in a population of patients with cranio-cervico-mandibular disorders (CCMD) of various types and severity.
