OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to find the optimal balance among tube voltage (kV), tube current (mA), and exposure time (s) in cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). STUDY DESIGN: Three human hemimandibles were scanned by using the 3D Accuitomo 170 scanner (J. Morita, Kyoto, Japan). First, 3 combinations of kilovolt (kV) and milliampere (mA) were used at a constant radiation dose. Seven observers evaluated the images; the kV of the highest-scoring scan was considered optimal...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to examine potential allergic reactions to different materials in oral and perioral diseases. STUDY DESIGN: The study included 230 consenting subjects in total-180 patients with oral and perioral diseases (30 patients each in the following groups: angioedema, oral lichenoid reactions [OLRs], burning mouth syndrome [BMS], gingivostomatitis, cheilitis, and perioral dermatitis) and 50 healthy controls. Comprehensive diagnostic workups were performed prior to patch testing with standard series allergens and with specific dental materials and skin prick testing (SPT) for food, preservatives and additives, and inhalants...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to evaluate the effect of different ambient light levels on observer detection of small contrast differences in a contrast phantom by using a high-end liquid crystal display (LCD) monitor. STUDY DESIGN: An aluminum step wedge was converted into a contrast phantom by the addition of bore holes. Radiographic images of the contrast elements were presented to 20 observers. Images were displayed in random order under different ambient light levels (0, 50, 200, and 500 lux) twice, and the observers had to determine if contrast elements were visible...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the magnitude of vital signs changes during 3 different dental treatments. STUDY DESIGN: A prospective longitudinal multiarm cross-over clinical trial was conducted. Three dental procedures were performed on each participant: supragingival scaling, dental restoration under local anesthesia (LA), and exodontia under LA. The following parameters were recorded for in each dental procedure: body temperature (BT), respiratory rate (RR), systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), mean arterial pressure (MAP), heart rate (HR), and peripheral oxygen saturation (SpO2 )...

OBJECTIVE: In this study, we evaluated the 8th edition of American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) staging criteria and lymph node ratio (LNR) to identify patients affected by squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue (SCCT) with a poor prognosis. STUDY DESIGN: Seventy-three cases of SCCT were analyzed retrospectively. Tumor staging was revised according to the 7th and 8th editions of the AJCC criteria. Depth of invasion (DOI), extranodal extension (ENE), and LNR were evaluated...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to investigate the antioxidant levels and biomarkers of oxidative stress in saliva from khat-chewing patients compared with controls. STUDY DESIGN: Saliva samples were collected from 51 chronic khat chewers and 46 age- and sex-matched controls. Concentrations of oxidative stress biomarkers (malonyl-dialdehyde [MDA], protein carbonyl, and 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine) and antioxidant defense (total antioxidant capacity [TAC], superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase, and catalase [CAT) were analyzed...

OBJECTIVE: Children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) are at risk for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) arthritis. This can lead to pain, limited mouth opening, facial asymmetry, and malocclusion. Our objective was to characterize patients with JIA and TMJ involvement in a single center. STUDY DESIGN: This was a retrospective study of children with JIA evaluated at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. Inclusion criteria were confirmed JIA and jaw complaints. Medical records were reviewed to document demographics, JIA information, age at first TMJ complaint, and involvement of other joints...

OBJECTIVES: Ameloblastoma is a benign, slow-growing, locally invasive epithelial tumor of odontogenic origin, with unlimited growth capacity and a strong tendency to recur. This multicentric study analyzed ameloblastoma diagnosed in Nigeria among different ethnic groups. STUDY DESIGN: This retrospective study included ameloblastoma cases diagnosed from 1964 to 2017 at 10 hospitals or medical centers in Nigeria. Age, sex, tribe, and location of the ameloblastoma in the jaw were analyzed...

Many older people who have emigrated from Vietnam to the United States continue to use the traditional medicines that they used in their country of origin. Clinicians trained in the West may not be familiar with these products. We reviewed 6 Asian traditional medicines that are popular among older Vietnamese people living in the United States. Each medicine has significant side effects that can lead to complications in patients undergoing surgery. Here, we present the case of a patient who used Cordyceps sinensis daily as a tonic and experienced prolonged bleeding after dental surgery...

OBJECTIVES: This was a systematic review of studies on the use of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) for paranasal sinus diseases. The applications of DWI were analyzed along with the main results, and conclusions were obtained by the investigators. STUDY DESIGN: Databases were searched using the keyword "diffusion" combined with "sinonasal," "paranasal sinus," "maxillary sinus," "frontal sinus," "ethmoid sinus," and "sphenoid sinus," including only articles that were published from 2008 to 2018...

Hyperimmunoglobulin E syndrome (HIES) is a rare heterogeneous primary immunodeficiency disorder characterized by infections of the lung and skin, elevated serum immunoglobulin E, and involvement of soft and bony tissues. Autosomal dominant HIES and related disorders are caused by defects in the Janus activated kinase-signal transducer and activator of transcription signaling pathway, leading to reduced numbers of T helper cell type 17 and impaired production of interleukin (IL)-17 A, IL-17 F, and IL-22. In addition, neutrophils have chemotactic defects, resulting in impaired responses at skin and lung sites...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate whether the use of a thrombin-fibrinogen biosponge (TachoSil) has any advantage in tongue healing. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective study with 30 patients treated with partial glossectomy (below half a tongue) was designed. We compared the results from a group using the biosponge (n =15 patients) and a control group (n = 15). Variables taken into consideration were bolus clearance, frenulum flexibility, and oral transit time...

OBJECTIVE: We describe here a new surgical technique, which allows for efficient tongue reduction with satisfactory appearance and avoids the complications of tip excision. STUDY DESIGN: This is a retrospective case review that includes 6 patients who had macroglossia and underwent tongue reduction using our new central V-shaped excision technique. Three patients were operated on at an early age because of significant macroglossia with permanent tongue protrusion, cosmetic disorder, and speech delay...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) after bone surgery compared to surgery alone in the treatment of medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ). STUDY DESIGN: A total of 47 patients with diagnosis of stage II or III of MRONJ were recruited at the Academic Hospital of Magna Graecia University of Catanzaro and allocated to 2 groups: In the first, patients were treated with PRF in addition to surgery (PRF group), in the other, only bone surgery was performed (non-PRF group)...
