Among the factors that should be considered for the rehabilitation of atrophic jaws is mainly the anatomy of edentulous jaw, which offers trouble installing fixtures in view of the proximity to the maxillary sinus and nasal cavity. There are several possibilities to rehabilitate atrophic arcs, autogenous grafts, distraction osteogenesis, angled and short implants have been widely used in clinical practice. Thus, advanced surgical techniques are disclosed in the literature, such as the all-on-fou...

In the last few decades, tissue engineering has emerged as a promising multidisciplinary approach for the repair and regeneration of damaged bone tissue. The craniofacial structure consists of bone, cartilage, soft tissue, nerves, and blood vessels. The major materials used in craniofacial tissue engineering are natural and synthetic polymers, ceramics, composite materials, and electrospun nanofibers....

Doxycycline and Coenzyme Q10 Treatment Modalities for Chronic Periodontitis: A Preliminary Study

Mahmoud Darweesh, Hesham El-Sharkawy, Omar N Fadhil and Ola M Maria

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: August 13, 2015

Periodontal diseases are inflammatory disorders that affect 10-15% of the population worldwide and represent one of the major causes of tooth loss. Such diseases result from complex interactions between periodontal pathogens and the host immune response. Owing to the high prevalence, scientists have been attracted to research aimed to treat periodontal diseases; however, treatments are always challenging. Conventional treatment of periodontitis focused on reducing the pathogens by standard scali...

Effects of Different Curing Unites on Bulk Fill Composites

Koray Soygun, Murat Unal, Ali Ozer, Evrem Gulnahar and Giray Bolayir

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: August 09, 2015

The aim of this study was to investigate three aged (with thermocycling and distilled water) bulk fill composites' (X-tra base, Surefil SDR flow, Tetric EvoCeram) surface microhardness levels. 4mm diameter and 2 or 4mm thickness composites' samples were polymerized by a halogen light and a blue-light emitting diode (n = 10). A Vickers microhardness tester was used to evaluate the microhardness at the top and bottom surfaces of every specimen. When the measurements of bottom parts were evaluated,...

Kissing Molars: A Report of Three Cases and Literature Review

Luis Miguel Gonzalez-Perez, Pedro Infante-Cossio, Marta Sanchez-Sanchez, Carlos Valdivieso-del-Pueblo and Marta Robles-Garcia

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: August 07, 2015

The existence of two mandibular impacted molars with confronted occlusal surfaces is extremely rare. When the two mandibular molars are surrounded by a single dental follicle, an entity called 'kissing molars' (KM) is formed. After the first description of KM by Van Hoof in 1973, very few cases have been reported in the literature. Therefore, knowledge about the etiopathogenesis, clinical features, and diagnostic and therapeutic options for KM is limited. The present study is based on a literatu...

Plasmacytoma Located in the Posterior Mandible: A Case Report

Yavuz Findik, Timucin Baykul and Ummugulsum Alkis

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: August 03, 2015

Plasma cell neoplasm is characterized by a monoclonal neoplastic proliferation of plasma cells and solitary plasmocytoma of bone (SPB) is a localized form. SPB is most frequently seen in vertebrae and secondarily in long bones. Its presence in jaws is extremely rare. Here we report a unique case of plasmacytoma in the left side of mandible, a chronology for diagnosis of the lesion is also reviewed along with clinical, and radiographic evidence....

Immediate Implant Placement in the Infected Site with Presence of a Pre-Existing Cyst: Report of Two Cases

Binbin Yu, Chun Fan, Ximei Xiao, Jiajia Song, Chenglong Ji and Chunyang Zhang

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: July 24, 2015

This report showed that the placement of immediate implants in presence of a pre-existing infected cyst may not be necessarily contraindicated if appropriate clinical procedures like antibiotic administration, meticulous cleaning, and alveolar debridement are performed before implant surgical procedure. Immediate placement of implants for replacement of teeth with the pre-existing infected cysts is a predictable treatment and can be indicated for replacing teeth lost. This report regards the imm...
