OBJECTIVES: Dentofacial deformities can be analyzed by skeletal and soft tissue cephalometric analysis (CA). The aim was to evaluate the difference in reproducibility between both methods. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Lateral cephalograms of 112 patients (65 females and 47 males, 27.7 ± 9.0 years) were oriented in natural head position (NHP) and digitized. The distances of skeletal (SNA, SNB, SnPog) and soft tissue (A', B' and Pog') landmarks relative to the respective norm values and the angles between the Nasion Sella line (NSL) and Frankfurt horizontal (FH) to NHP were measured for statistical evaluation and compared with respective data of an adult control group (CG) with class I occlusion and harmonic facial balance...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate SmearOFF, 7% maleic acid (MA) and two different preparations of ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) in smear layer removal. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifty single-rooted teeth were separated into five groups, instrumented and irrigated as follows: (1) SmearOFF, (2) 7% MA, (3) 18% EDTA (pH 11.4), (4) 17% EDTA (pH 8.5) and (5) 0.9% saline. Teeth samples were blinded and examined by scanning electron microscopy with Image J software.

OBJECTIVE: This controlled study investigated the occurrence of sequelae to permanent successors (SPS) following traumatic dental injury in primary teeth (TDIp). Additionally, this study evaluated whether TDIp is a risk factor for SPS, with a focus on an association between SPS and the child's age and type of trauma. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The trauma group (TG) consisted of permanent teeth, whose antecessors had suffered TDIp, in a population of children with complete eruption of permanent teeth...

OBJECTIVES: To study and compare the patterns of lambdoid suture closure bilaterally; to specify any relationship between progression of the union of lambdoid suture and age; to detect sexual and population variations in lambdoid suture closure. METHODOLOGY: A total of 98 subjects of both sexes, 20 years and beyond were included in the study. The state of fusion of the lambdoid suture was examined using a modified reverse panoramic radiograph (RPRg). Frederic's five-point rating scale was used to assess lambdoid suture closure status...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the prevalence of dental anxiety (DA) among adolescents in Tromsø and Balsfjord region in northern Norway and present a multivariate logistic regression model to predict high dental anxiety scores (DASs) among these adolescents. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We used self-report questionnaires and clinical dental examination data from adolescents registered in upper secondary school (15-18 years of age) in this region (n = 986). Logistic regression was used to estimate odds ratios and their 95% confidence intervals (CI) when using Corah's DAS as a dichotomous dependent variable...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the possibility of evaluating the relationship between dental maturation and skeletal maturation without taking a hand-wrist radiogram outside of panoramic radiogram. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Panoramic and hand-wrist radiographs of 717 patients (383 girls and 334 boys), with ages ranging from 10 to 15 years, were evaluated. Dental maturity stages of the mandibular canine, first premolar, second premolar and second molar teeth were determined by Demirjian's and Nolla's methods...

OBJECTIVE: We studied whether primary care temporomandibular disorder (TMD) patients reporting different levels of pain-related disability differ in terms of comorbid pains, general health conditions and quality of life. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Consecutive TMD pain patients (n = 399) seeking treatment in primary care completed a questionnaire on comorbid pains and their interference and the Finnish version of the RAND-36-item quality of life questionnaire. Medical diagnoses confirmed by doctors were recorded...

INTRODUCTION: For many years, edentulous patients have had no other option than conventional dentures to reestablish their oral function. To avoid the need for bone graft surgery, some professionals have suggested the use of mini dental implants (MDIs) to support prostheses. The MDIs are narrow implants, ranging approximately from 1.8 to 2.9 mm in diameter. Recently, the promising results of mini implants regarding osseointegration and patient satisfaction have led clinicians to accept them as a definitive treatment option...
