PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the total success rates of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA), ferric sulfate (FS), and formocresol (FC) as pulpotomy agents in primary molars. METHODS A randomized, split-mouth study design was used in 32 healthy 5- to 7-year-old children with 128 carious primary molars without clinical or radiographic(More)
Mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) type VI or Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome is a very rare autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease, caused by a deficiency of the enzyme N-acetylgalactosamine-4-sulfatase (Arylsulfatase B, ARSB). Clinical examination, biochemical studies, and molecular genetic analyses have been performed in 17 patients affected with MPS VI from 15(More)
Turkish twin brothers affected with hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy type IV (HSAN IV) are reported. Their clinical findings were generally typical for HSAN IV. Interestingly they both had preserved periodontal sensation. Mutation analysis of the NTRK1 gene showed a homozygous c.2001C>T substitution in exon 15 in both twins. This base(More)
The dental health of 41 children aged 4-16 years who were in maintenance therapy from acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) was examined in relation to the period of time in maintenance. There was no significant difference in dental experience and salivary flow rate between the control group and patients with leukemia. Performed treatment index (PTI) and(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate and compare the crystalline structures of recently released MTA Plus (MTA-P), MTA Angelus (MTA-A), DiaRoot BioAggregate (BA) by X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Phase analysis was carried out on powder and set forms of tested materials. The powder specimens placed into sample(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the shear bond strength (SBS) of a microhybrid composite resin bonded with three different adhesive systems to Er:YAG laser- (EL) or bur-prepared dentin surfaces and to analyze the quality and ultrastructure of the adhesive–dentin interfaces by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The specimens prepared for SBS test and(More)
Lacrimo-auriculo-dento-digital (LADD) syndrome is an autosomal dominantly inherited disorder characterized mainly by hypoplasia/aplasia of lacrimal and salivary tracts, small cup-shaped and/or malformed ears, sensorineuronal or conductive hearing loss, abnormalities of the teeth, and variable anomalies of the hands and feet. In this case report, general and(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the microleakage around Class II glass ionomer restorations in primary molars. Two different glass ionomer cements and one amalgam control were assessed in vitro by acidified gel technique. Assessment of caries-like lesions was performed using polarized light microscopy. The traditional glass ionomer (Chemfil II)(More)
Enamel-renal-gingival syndrome (ERGS; OMIM #204690), a rare autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in FAM20A, is characterized by nephrocalcinosis, nephrolithiasis, amelogenesis imperfecta, hypoplastic type, gingival fibromatosis and other dental abnormalities, including hypodontia and unerupted teeth with large dental follicles. We report three(More)
