PURPOSE To evaluate the etiopathogenesis, clinical features and surgical approaches for removal of ectopic third molars in the mandible. METHODS We report a case of an impacted mandibular third molar dislocated on mandibular sigmoid notch. 20 cases of ectopic mandibular third molars reported in the English-language literature, identified from Pubmed and(More)
The aim of this case report is to describe the treatment of a patient with skeletal Class III malocclusion with maxillary retrognathia using skeletal anchorage devices and intermaxillary elastics. Miniplates were inserted between the mandibular lateral incisor and canine teeth on both sides in a male patient aged 14 years 5 months. Self-drilling(More)
The incidence of condylar fracture is very high and most are not caused by direct trauma. On the other hand, fracture of the coronoid process is reported less often than fracture of other parts of the mandible. We report a case of right subcondylar and coronoid fractures without any evidence of direct trauma to the zygomatic area or an indirect trauma to(More)
The maxillary sinus lifting procedure is an important preprosthetic surgical procedure for the creation of adequate bone volume in the edentulous posterior maxilla for the placement of dental implants. The presence of a maxillary sinus cyst has been considered a contraindication for this operation. Perforation of the membrane and hence the elongation of the(More)
Lipomas are rarely found in the parotid gland region. Because of their rarity at this site, they are not often considered in the differential diagnosis of parotid tumors. The parotid lipoma is a slowly growing, asymptomatic, freely movable, soft mass. Preoperative diagnosis is generally difficult. We present a case of a slowly enlarging mass of the parotid(More)
Our aim was to investigate the differences in the dynamics of lip force between a group of participants with repaired cleft lips and a group of patients the same age but without clefts. We evaluated 101 children between the ages of 10 to 15 years (unilateral clefts n=35, bilateral clefts n=15, class I malocclusion n=25, and class III malocclusion n=26).(More)
OBJECTIVE Pulsed ultrasonic waves have been shown to accelerate bone healing. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound on bone healing. STUDY DESIGN Thirty-two femurs from 16 skeletally mature male Wistar albino rats were used. Two defects were produced in each femur with a 3-mm-diameter trephine bur and then(More)
Reconstruction of the mandible with a free fibular graft is one of the most common treatment choices following tumor resection. But as the graft is often vertically deficient, pathological fracture may occur because of occlusal forces after prosthetic rehabilitation. Distraction osteogenesis can be a good choice for the repair of the fibular flap. In this(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to compare the short-term dental and skeletal effects of a face mask (FM) with those of skeletal anchorage (SA) therapy with intermaxillary elastics in prepubertal patients with skeletal Class III malocclusion. METHODS Fifty patients with skeletal Class III malocclusion and maxillary deficiency were divided into two(More)
Internal maxillary distraction with the Le Fort I osteotomy is a technique that can provide simultaneous skeletal advancement and gradual expansion of the soft tissue. For calibrating the vectors of the internal distractors and transferring the desired vectors to the patient, surgical guides may be fabricated before surgery on a stereolithographic model.(More)
