To noninvasively determine the relationship between the thickness of the buccal bone and attached gingiva of the maxillary premolars.
This article was published in the following journal.
Peri-implant bone thickness is an important local factor that could influence esthetic outcomes in immediate implant therapy. The aim of this study was to assess the thickness of the buccal bone overl...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) for determining cortical thickness and the gray value, investigating its correlation with micro-computed tomo...
The aims of the present study were to determine the thickness of the Schneiderian membrane and identify the width of the maxillary sinus, which is indicated by the buccal and lingual walls of the sinu...
This study aimed to evaluate the effects of the Herbst appliance on the proclination and protrusion of the lower incisors, and to verify if the device causes alveolar bone loss in the anterior region ...
To histologically evaluate hard and soft tissues adaptation at screw-shaped devices installed at recipient sites in the distal segments of the alveolar edentulous ridge prepared with a buccal bone wid...
The aim of this study is to evaluate and compare the effect of rapid maxillary expansion with and without microosteoperforation in patients with skeletal maxillary constriction.Theoretical...
The correlation between tooth inclination and bone thickness and the comparison between thickness measurements and buccolingual inclination before and after dental decompensation will be e...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the injection of Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is effective in reducing alveolar bone loss that happens after each rapid maxillary expansion (RME)...
Implant placement may trigger bone trauma, which might result in 3-dimensional bone changes. While the process of peri-implant disease is not well understood, implant position within the b...
Buccal bone is prone to resorb after tooth extraction specially with immediate tooth implantation which could compromise the esthetics of the patient. socket shield technique retains the b...
The growth and development of bones from fetus to adult. It includes two principal mechanisms of bone growth: growth in length of long bones at the epiphyseal cartilages and growth in thickness by depositing new bone (OSTEOGENESIS) with the actions of OSTEOBLASTS and OSTEOCLASTS.
A radionuclide imaging agent used primarily in scintigraphy or tomography of the heart to evaluate the extent of the necrotic myocardial process. It has also been used in noninvasive tests for the distribution of organ involvement in different types of amyloidosis and for the evaluation of muscle necrosis in the extremities.
The measurement of subcutaneous fat located directly beneath the skin by grasping a fold of skin and subcutaneous fat between the thumb and forefinger and pulling it away from the underlying muscle tissue. The thickness of the double layer of skin and subcutaneous tissue is then read with a caliper. The five most frequently measured sites are the upper arm, below the scapula, above the hip bone, the abdomen, and the thigh. Its application is the determination of relative fatness, of changes in physical conditioning programs, and of the percentage of body fat in desirable body weight.

Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)
A measurement of the thickness of the carotid artery walls. It is measured by B-mode ULTRASONOGRAPHY and is used as a surrogate marker for ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
