CBCT Analysis of root length and inter-orifice dentin thickness as anatomical predictive factors for danger zone in mesial roots of mandibular first molars in a Kurdish subpopulation (A Retrospective cross-sectional study)

Abstract : This study evaluated the danger zone (D.Z.) in mesial roots of mandibular molars and the correlation between the sex of the patient and the dentin thickness at the danger zone area. And evaluated anatomical references of the D.Z. and some anatomical landmarks, including tooth/root length, inter-canal orifices distance, and the influence of the age and sex of the patient on the dentin thickness at the danger zone area. A total of 301 randomly selected CBCTs were included in this cross-sectional s


The effect of botulinum toxin type A injection into masseter muscle on mandibular angle volume and masseter muscle width

Abstract : To evaluate the effect of botulinum toxin type A (BTA) injection into five points in the safe zone of masseter muscle on the volume of mandibular angle and masseter muscle width. Thirteen volunteers received a single session of 25 units of BTA into the safe zone of each masseter muscle. Three-dimensional cone bean computed tomography (CBCT) was conducted before injection and after six months of the injection. Masseter muscle thickness and mandibular angle volume were evaluated. Cross sectional a

Histological evaluation after using two different bone compositions in terms of staged horizontal Guided Bone Regeneration

Abstract : The purpose of this study was histological evaluation of horizontal ridge augmentation using xenograft with and without autogenous bone. The present split mouth study was conducted on 19 patients with insufficient width of alveolar ridge. The sites were randomly assigned into two groups, xenograft alone + A-PRF+ + Ti-d-PTFE membrane (Xenograft group) (n = 21) and the combined xenograft and autogenous bone (70-30) + Ti-d-PTFE membrane (Mix group) (n = 21). Nine months after the guided bone regene


Diode Laser and Scalpel Surgery in Oral Mucosal Biopsies: A Clinical and Histological Comparative Study
