Preferences of AP position of the straight Caucasian facial profile.
I profile and to study the influence of gender, age, sex preference, and profession. Portrait images of one male and one female model with a Class I occlusal relationship were warped into nine different antero-posterior positions. An internet site was established to reach as many people as possible,...
Assessment of skeletal stability of intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy with one-day maxillary-mandibular fixation followed by early jaw exer...
We developed a postoperative management protocol for our IVRO patients, using jaw exercises with elastic bands starting on the second day after surgery. We evaluated the cephalometric skeletal and dental stabilities of 16 IVRO patients as they followed our protocol. The stabilities were confirmed an...
Effects of the closing and opening muscle groups on jaw condyle biomechanics after prominent mandibular angle osteotomy.
The aim of this study was to determine the effect of closing and opening muscle groups of the jaw on mandibular stability after prominent mandibular angle osteotomy, through three-dimensional finite element analysis (FEA). Six patients with prominent mandibular angles, without malocclusion, were sel...
Temporomandibular joint and psychosocial evaluation of patients after orthognathic surgery: A preliminary study.
We continued RDC/TMD Axis II research for 12 patients who had preoperative temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). The RDC/TMD Axis II charts were recorded preoperatively and 6 months after surgery. The Wilcoxon signed rank test was used for statistical analysis. Overall, there was no significant di...
Evaluation of the effects of the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) on alveolar bone repair following extraction of impacted third molars: Pr...
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is rich in growth factors, target-specific polypeptides that play a role in cell proliferation and differentiation and can thus encourage wound repair. This study sought to assess the effects of PRP on new bone formation in a sample of 25 patients with clinical indications...
Effects of different consolidation periods on bone formation and implant success in alveolar distraction osteogenesis: a clinical study.
The aims of this study were to compare the consolidation periods in alveolar distraction osteogenesis and evaluate the effects of this condition on bone formation, bone relapse and implant success in reconstruction of resorbed edentulous mandibles. Eighteen patients were underwent vertical alveolar...
Assessment of nostril symmetry after primary cleft rhinoplasty in patients with complete unilateral cleft lip and palate.
The aim of this study was to assess the nostril symmetry following primary cleft rhinoplasty done with either a dorsal onlay or columellar strut graft in patients with non-syndromic complete unilateral cleft lip and palate. In this retrospective study 30 consecutive patients treated with autogenous...
Influences of palatoplasty by the push-back procedure on craniofacial morphology and growth.
We aimed to evaluate the influences of the push-back procedure on the craniofacial morphology and its growth. Using cephalometry we compared the craniofacial morphology and growth of three groups of Japanese children, living in the same region (Hokkaido, Japan). 1) 28 children (13 girls and 15 boys)...
Mucormycosis of the head and neck.
We report on two cases with different outcomes. A 63-year-old female presented with a recently developed deformation of her right cheek and nose combined with a loosening of the teeth. Further examination revealed mucormycosis of the maxilla. Hemimaxillectomy and secondary bony reconstruction with o...
Pulmonary metastases from an Ameloblastoma: case report and review of the literature.
Ameloblastomas have a high recurrence rate, and because of their biological tendency towards local invasion are considered borderline tumours. Despite this, reports of metastasis of these tumours are rare. This report presents a patient with mandibular ameloblastoma that recurred 29 years after surg...
