PURPOSE: This study compared photo-biomodulation (PBM) and ozone therapy (OT) for mental nerve injury by counting Schwann cells (SCs) and fasciculated nerve branches and measuring fascicular nerve areas. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The effects of OT and PBM on mental nerve injury were evaluated. Mental nerves of 27 rats were partly sutured and allocated into 3 groups. Group 1 received no treatment, group 2 received OT, and group 3 received PBM. The number of fascicules beyond nerve branches and the number of SCs before and after nerve injury were evaluated histologically...

PURPOSE: The aim of this experimental study was to investigate the prophylactic effect of pentoxifylline (PTX) on medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Female Sprague-Dawley rats (n = 33) received zoledronic acid (ZA) for 8 weeks to create an osteonecrosis model. The left mandibular second molars were extracted and the recovery period lasted 8 weeks before sacrifice. PTX was intraperitoneally administered to prevent MRONJ...

PURPOSE: Oral and maxillofacial surgeons traditionally have musculoskeletal pain. The aim of this study was to determine the postural preferences of oral and maxillofacial surgeons and their effect on musculoskeletal pain. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The authors designed and implemented a cross-sectional study. The association of demographic characteristics with postural preferences and use of loupes was explored. Then, the relation of demographic characteristics, postural preferences, and use of loupes to painful musculoskeletal complaints was analyzed...

Masakatsu Fukuda, Katsuyuki Inoue, Hideaki Sakashita
Periostitis ossificans, also known as Garré osteomyelitis, is a specific type of chronic osteomyelitis that forms new bone under the periosteum resulting from a periosteal reaction to chronic inflammation or infections. It commonly affects the mandible secondary to odontogenic infection. The therapeutic approach involves eliminating the infectious cause and antibiotic administration. This report describes an unusual case of periostitis ossificans arising from the mandible of an 11-year-old boy. The cause of infection was correlated with a lower right unerupted third molar, which had no obvious connection with the oral cavity...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to compare outcome measurements of skeletal and dental expansion with bone-borne (BB) versus tooth-borne (TB) appliances after surgically assisted rapid palatal expansion (SARPE). This study was performed to provide quantitative measurements that will help the oral surgeon and orthodontist in selecting the appliance with, on average, the greatest amount of skeletal expansion and the least amount of dental expansion. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A computerized database search was performed using PubMed, EBSCO, Cochrane, Scopus, Web of Science, and Google Scholar on publications in reputable oral surgery and orthodontic journals...

Jorge Gonzalez-Ocasio, Mark Stevens
PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to examine the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for autotransplantation of third molars as a successful technique to provide immediate tooth structure for space maintenance and masticatory function when premature loss of a permanent tooth occurs and other dental restorative options are not indicated. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study included 10 healthy patients 10 to 17 years of age with at least 1 immature third molar (one to two thirds of root formation) used to replace extracted non-restorable teeth...

Nick Thomas, Sharon Aronovich
PURPOSE: Currently, there is no standard of care for the treatment of refractory myofascial pain and concomitant temporomandibular joint (TMJ) arthralgia. This comparative study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of botulinum toxin A (Btx), as an adjunct to TMJ arthroscopy, in this patient population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted of patients who underwent TMJ arthroscopy with (Btx group) or without (control group) intramuscular Btx for TMJ arthritis and refractory myofascial pain at the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor) from 2011 through 2014...

PURPOSE: Orthognathic surgeries, such as bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy (BSSO) and genioplasty, can influence the pharyngeal airway space (PAS) and this has been supported by previous studies. The purpose of this study was to assess changes of the PAS in patients with a high body mass index (BMI) likely to have narrow airways before and after setback BSSO with or without advancement genioplasty surgery by 3-dimensional computed tomography. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-five adults with a BMI of at least 24...

PURPOSE: To determine whether low-dose recombinant human parathyroid hormone (rhPTH) would have a beneficial effect on regenerate healing and surrounding bone in a rabbit model of rapid mandibular distraction osteogenesis (DO). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-eight rabbits underwent unilateral mandibular lengthening at a rapid rate of 2 mm per day for 5 days. From the first day of DO, the experimental group received daily subcutaneous injections of rhPTH 10 μg/kg for 30 days and the control group received the same volume of saline (n = 14 in each group)...

PURPOSE: Fracture lines in unfavorable locations are referred to as "bad splits" in a mandibular sagittal split osteotomy (SSO). Several modifications of the technique by Obwegeser have been introduced to minimize this risk. This in vitro study was performed to determine whether the shape of the osteotomy cut affects the torque and the fracture pattern of an SSO in pig mandibles. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a split-mouth model, 16 mandibles were split according to the Hunsuck-Dal Pont modification of the Obwegeser technique...

Louis Mandel, Loren Wissner Greene
Radioactive iodine ((131)I) is used effectively for the treatment of differentiated thyroid cancers. Because it is actively secreted by the salivary glands, radiation damage to these glands can occur. Obstructive swellings after mealtime salivary stimulation are common occurrences. Dry mouth is not usually seen if low doses of (131)I are used. A subjective complaint of xerostomia in a patient treated with (131)I 75.8 mCi proved to be related to the simultaneous presence of Sjögren syndrome (SS). Serologic, histologic, scintigraphic, and salivary volume findings and the patient's subjective complaints served to establish the pre-existence of SS...

Camurati-Engelmann disease (CED), or progressive diaphyseal dysplasia, is an uncommon bone dysplasia that is inherited in an autosomal-dominant pattern. The disease mainly affects the diaphyses of the long bones but can induce sclerotic changes to the facial skeleton and skull base. The diagnosis of CED is based on clinical and radiologic features. This article presents the clinical and radiologic characteristics of the jaws as visualized on cone-beam computed tomograms of a 46-year-old woman diagnosed with CED...

Monckeberg arteriosclerosis is often an incidental finding recognized at plain radiography. It differs from the more common atherosclerosis in that the tunica intima remains unaffected; hence, the vessel lumen is preserved. Monckeberg arteriosclerosis is most commonly seen in patients with diabetes and patients with end-stage renal disease. In this short communication, the author presents a rare case of Monckeberg arteriosclerosis affecting the facial vasculature.

PURPOSE: Evidence that asymptomatic third molars (M3s) negatively affect their adjacent second molars (A-M2s) is limited. The present study evaluated the association between visible M3s (V-M3s) of various clinical status with the periodontal pathologic features of their A-M2s. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Subjects with at least 1 quadrant having intact first and second molars, either with V-M3s and symptom free or without adjacent V-M3s, were enrolled in the present cross-sectional investigation...

PURPOSE: This study investigated the effectiveness of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) for treating neurosensory impairment after bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO). MATERIALS AND METHODS: This randomized, double-blinded, split-mouth trial included patients requiring BSSO. After surgery, 1 side of each patient was randomly assigned to laser therapy and the other side served as the control. At 24, 48, and 72 hours after surgery, LLLT was accomplished by intraoral application of a 660-nm laser around the surgical site (200 mW, 10 seconds, 2 J, 1...
