Sinus augmentation using human mesenchymal stem cells loaded into a ?-tricalcium phosphate/hydroxyapatite scaffold
Objective: Implant placement in the posterior maxilla may often be contraindicated because of insufficient bone volume and presence of the maxillary sinus. In these situations, sinus floor augmentation frequently has been ...
Effect of static magnetic fields on the osseointegration of immediately placed implants: A randomized controlled clinical trial
PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of static magnetic fields (SMFs) on the implants immediately placed in fresh extraction sockets. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty patients who were in need of 20 fixed ...
Management of mandibular vascular malformation with sclerotherapy. Report of two cases
Background: Management of vascular anomalies is extremely challenging and varies according to the nature of the lesion. Traditionally, embolization with the resection of the lesion and autologous immediate reconstruction ...
Massive craniofacial intraosseous vascular malformation resembling cystic angiomatosis: Report of 2 cases and review of the literature
Cystic angiomatosis of bone is a rare condition of multifocal angiomas of the skeleton. The condition is believed to be congenital, grows slowly and starts in first decades of life. Two cases of progressive bimaxillary ...
Measurement of volume changes of sinus floor augmentation covered with buccal fat pad: A case series study
Objectives: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the volumetric changes of the maxillary sinus graft in conjunction with buccal fat pad (BFP) covering the lateral sinus wall. Study design: In this article, the ...
Treatment of Arteriovenous Malformations: Assessment of 2 Techniques-Transmandibular Curettage Versus Resection and Immediate Replantation
Purpose: This study evaluates 2 surgical methods used at our center for the treatment of mandibular arteriovenous malformations (AVMs): resection with immediate replantation and curettage via proximal transmandibular ...
Intraosseous mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the maxilla in a teenager: A case report and review of literature

Secondary repair of alveolar clefts using human mesenchymal stem cells
Recently tissue engineering has become available as a regenerative treatment for bone defects; however, little has been reported on the application of tissue engineering for regeneration of cleft defect tissues. ...
A Comparative Study of Crestal Bone Loss and Implant Stability between Osteotome and Conventional Implant Insertion Techniques: A Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial Study
Purpose: The aim of this prospective randomized controlled clinical study was to assess the crestal bone loss and the implant stability in implants that were placed by the osteotome technique compared with the conventional ...
Implant placement in patients with oral bisphosphonate therapy: A case series
Background: Although the effect of bisphosphonates on dental implant osseointegration is not clear, dental implant failures attributable to oral bisphosphonate therapy have been reported in patients with osteoporosis. ...
