OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether the microscopic filamentous aggregates observed in radicular cysts are associated with the molecular identification of Actinomyces israelii. Moreover, to verify whether this bacterium can be detected in radicular cyst specimens not presenting aggregates. STUDY DESIGN: Microscopic colonies suggestive of Actinomyces were found in 8 out of 279 radicular cyst samples (case group). The case and control groups (n = 12; samples without filamentous colonies) were submitted to the semi-nested polymerase chain reaction to test the presence of A israelii...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study was to compare cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) findings pertinent to patients with temporomandibular disorder (TMD) and patients without TMD (non-TMD), as well as to investigate the correlation between these findings and the clinical dysfunction index (Di). STUDY DESIGN: In this cross-sectional study, CBCT images of temporomandibular joints (TMJs) were evaluated for condylar bone changes in 84 patients with TMD. The patients were assigned a score using Helkimo's clinical Di, ranging from 1 to 25, and were thereafter subdivided into 3 groups based on the degree of Helkimo's Di...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to characterize the histomorphometric features of subgemmal neurogenous plaques (SNPs) to better understand their relationship to surrounding microanatomy included in the tissue biopsy samples of the tongue. STUDY DESIGN: A 12-year retrospective study on the files of 3 oral pathology centers yielded 28 SNPs. Hematoxylin and eosin-stained sections were used for histologic analysis, and immunohistochemical staining for S100 protein was performed to better characterize the neural structures...

OBJECTIVES: Alveolar ridge and vertical augmentations are challenging procedures in dental implantology. Even material blocks with an interconnecting porous system are never completely resorbed. Shell techniques combined with autologous bone chips are therefore the gold standard. Using biopolymers for these techniques is well documented. We applied three-dimensional (3-D) techniques to create an individualized bending model for the adjustment of a plane biopolymer membrane made of polylactide...

OBJECTIVES: To assess how often patients receive dental implants after mandibular resection for benign neoplasms and to determine barriers to completion of functional reconstruction. STUDY DESIGN: This was a retrospective cohort study of patients who underwent resection for benign mandibular neoplasms between 2005 and 2014. Demographic variables included age, sex, and race. Outcome variables include rates of implant placement, implant restoration, and reasons for not having implants...

Peggy P Lee, Alexander R Stanton, Lars G Hollender
BACKGROUND: Research using magnetic resonance imaging analysis has shown that internal temporomandibular joint derangement is associated with significantly greater horizontal condylar angle. However, the association between osteoarthritic (OA) bony changes as shown on computed tomography and horizontal condylar angle has never been evaluated. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relationship between mandibular condylar angle and OA degenerative changes. STUDY DESIGN: This is a retrospective study using cone beam computed tomography images and reports from 60 patients with unilateral OA degenerative changes and 43 control patients with no OA-affected joints...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to determine if the use of certain image enhancements and dual observers had an effect on the detection of caries, dentin extension, and cavitation. STUDY DESIGN: Seven observers viewed unenhanced and enhanced images taken on photostimulable phosphor plates (PSP) and Schick 33 sensors and were asked to determine whether proximal caries lesions, dentin extension, and cavitation were present. Pairs of observers also evaluated the unenhanced PSP images and recorded their confidence...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of routine open mouth osseous temporomandibular joint (TMJ) tomography on diagnosis and treatment planning of TMJ conditions. Investigating the need for such images is important to justify the additional radiation exposure imparted by such procedures. STUDY DESIGN: The records of patients who underwent closed- and open-mouth osseous TMJ tomography (planar film tomography up to the beginning of 2006; cone beam computed tomography from 2006 onward) were reviewed...

REVIEW
Hawra Aljanobi, Amarpreet Sabharwal, Bralavan Krishnakumar, Jill M Kramer
Sjögren's syndrome (SS) and burning mouth syndrome (BMS) typically occur in postmenopausal women. Although these conditions have significantly different etiopathogeneses, patients with SS or BMS often present with analogous oral complaints. The similarities between the two conditions have led to considerable confusion on the part of medical and dental practitioners, and those with BMS or SS often wait years to receive a diagnosis. Therefore, it is imperative for clinicians to understand the characteristic subjective and objective features of each disease and how these can be used to distinguish them...

OBJECTIVE: Vaginal Candida colonization is common during pregnancy. Vaginal Candida may transmit vertically to the mouth of newborns during labor. The aim of this study was to assess and compare oral Candida colonization between vaginally born newborns and cesarean-born newborns and to investigate the association of the mother's vaginal and oral Candida colonization and the newborn's oral colonization at the time of delivery. STUDY DESIGN: Culture swabs were collected from the oral and vaginal mucosae of 100 pregnant women and from the oral mucosa of their 100 full-term newborns...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the best surgical sequence for the treatment of unilateral condylar benign lesions causing facial asymmetry by applying computer-assisted surgical planning and simulation. STUDY DESIGN: Computed tomography (CT) data from 12 patients whose maxillary cant was corrected by maintaining the vertical position of the central incisors and equally intruding the long side of the maxilla and extruding the short side were analyzed by ProPlan CMF 1...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this article is to investigate the results of free-flap reconstructions in the head and neck area in a secondary low-volume institution and compare these with the literature. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective study was performed of all patients who underwent free-flap reconstructive surgery in our institution from January 9, 2011, to July 12, 2015, by one young surgeon in a one-team approach. The types of flaps applied, defect sites, pathology, anastomotic details, success and complication rates, lengths of stay, and patients' ages and comorbidities were analyzed...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the relation of juxta-apical radiolucency (JAR) to the mandibular canal and cortical plates on cone beam computed tomography images, as well as to assess whether the presence of JAR is related to the position of the mandibular canal. STUDY DESIGN: Forty-seven JAR cases were evaluated by cone beam computed tomography. JAR position and its relationship to the mandibular canal and cortical plates were investigated. The position of the mandibular canal was recorded and compared with a control group...

The association between temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) and headaches, cervical spine dysfunction, and fibromyalgia is not artefactual. The aim of this review is to describe the comorbid relationship between TMD and these three major painful conditions and to discuss the clinical implications and the underlying pain mechanisms involved in these relationships. Common neuronal pathways and central sensitization processes are acknowledged as the main factors for the association between TMD and primary headaches, although the establishment of cause-effect mechanisms requires further clarification and characterization...
