Micro-CT assessment of the sealing ability of three root canal filling techniques.

Original Article J Oral Sci., Volume 57, Issue 4, 2015, Pages 361-6

Abstract

Abstract This study used micro-CT to compare three obturation techniques with respect to void occurrence in canals filled with bioceramic sealer. Thirty extracted first mandibular premolars were prepared with a ProTaper Universal system and randomly allocated to three groups. Canals were obturated with gutta-percha and bioceramic root canal sealer, using either single-cone, lateral compaction, or Thermafil filling technique. Each tooth was then scanned with micro-CT. Voids in 2D cross-sectional images and void volumes in 3D images of all root thirds were assessed in relation to obturation technique. There was no significant difference between obturation techniques in the proportion of sections with voids (P > 0.05). However, the results of the obturation techniques significantly differed in relation to root region (P < 0.05). In conclusion, no root filling technique resulted in void-free specimens. Void volumes were highest for the single-cone technique and lowest for Thermafil, in all regions (P < 0.05).

Document Cone beam computed tomography evaluation of mandibular canal anterior loop morphology and volume in a group of Turkish patients

Original Article Source of the Document Biotechnology and Biotechnological Equipment, Volume 30, Issue 2, 2016, Pages 346-53

Abstract

Abstract The aim of the present study was to assess the presence and course of the anterior loop in the mental foramen region according to age and gender, using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). Both the right and left sides were retrospectively studied in 141 patients (n = 282). Axial, sagittal, cross-sectional and panoramic images were evaluated and three-dimensional images were reconstructed and evaluated as necessary. The morphology, course and length of the anterior loop were measured. The reliability and reproducibility were assessed based on the intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) and the coefficient of variation. An anterior loop was found in about 86% of the scans. The mean anterior loop proximal edge was 3.15 mm and the mean distance between the buccal border of the anterior loop and buccal alveolar wall was 2.24 mm. The mean volume of the mandibular canal was 1140 mm3 and the mean volume of the anterior loop was 90 mm3. Statistically significant difference was found in male patients in terms of the canal and anterior loop volume (p < 0.05). A high prevalence of anterior loop was detected by CBCT imaging, with predominance in female patients. Clinicians should be careful during implant or bone surgery procedures to avoid possible complications, with special emphasis on patient age, using this imaging modality that involves use of less radiation.

Dijital Panoramik ve Temporomandibuler eklem grafileri

Original Article Ankara Üniversitesi Diş Hekimliği Fakültesi Dergisi. , Volume 2, Issue 2, 2016, Pages 42-50

Abstract

Panoramic radiography is an extraoral technique which provides a radiographic image of the maxilla, mandible and adjacent structures with minimal geometric distortion and superimposition. Although panoramic radiography technique is 2-D radiography still today clinicians are very often used for dental imaging. Furthermore, as not only the dental area, but the surrounding bone and skull anatomical landmarks especially temporomandibular joint ( TMJ ) are being widely examined. This article will provide information about panoramic radiography and it’s applications in dentomaxillofacial region.


Özet

Panoramik radyografi her iki dental arkın ve buna komşu anatomik yapıların tek bir tomografik görüntüsünün minimal geometrik distorsiyon ve süperpozisyon ile görüntülenmesini sağlayan tekniktir. Panoramik radyografi teknik olarak 2 boyutlu radyografi olmasına rağmen, günümüzde klinisyenler tarafından diş hekimliği pratiğinde çok sıklıkla kullanılmaktadır. Bunun yanı sıra sadece dental bölgeyi değil, çevre kemik ve kafatasını ilgilendiren anatomik landmarklar, özellikle temporomandibular eklem (TME) incelemelerinde de sıklıkla kullanılmaktadır. Bu makalede panoramik radyografi ve TME grafileri’nin dentomaksillofasiyal bölgedeki kullanım alanları ile ilgili bilgi verilecektir

Morphometric analysis of the infraorbital foramen, canal and groove using cone beam CT: considerations for creating artificial organs.

Original Article Int J Artif Organs, Volume 39, Issue 1, 2016, Pages 28-36

Abstract

Abstract PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to examine the anatomy and variations of the infraorbital foramen and its surroundings via morphometric measurements using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans derived from a 3D volumetric rendering program. METHODS: 354 sides of CBCT scans from 177 patients were examined in this study. DICOM data from these images were exported to Maxilim® software in order to generate 3D surface models. The morphometric measurements were done for infraorbital foramen (IOF), infraorbital groove (IOG) and infraorbital canal (IOC). All images were evaluated by 1 radiologist. To assess intra-observer reliability, the Wilcoxon matched-pairs signed rank test was used. Differences between sex, side, age and measurements were evaluated using chi-square and paired t-test and measurements were evaluated using 1-way ANOVA tests. Differences were considered significant when p<0.05. RESULTS: The most common shape was oval for IOF and parallel for IOC without any accessory foramen. The results showed that females have smaller dimensions for the measurements between the two foramen rotundum (FR), FR-IOF, sella-FR, center of the IOF (cIOF)-nasion (N), cIOF-NB (nasion-B) (p>0.05). No significant difference was found according to age groups (p>0.05). CONCLUSIONS: These results provide detailed knowledge of the anatomical characteristics in this particular area. CBCT imaging with lower radiation dose and thin slices can be a powerful tool for anesthesia procedures like infra orbital nerve blocks, for surgical approaches like osteotomies and neurectomies and also for generating artificial prostheses.
