Growth and Transcription Factors in Tooth Development

Odontogenesis is a complex embryonic process originated by the interaction between two main embryonic components, dental epithelium and ectomesenchyme. This ectomesenchymal interaction is mediated by growth and transcription factors controlling the different aspects of tooth development such as tooth initiation, enamel knot formation and/or cell proliferation and differentiation.

Raman Spectroscopic Analysis of Blood, Urine, Saliva and Tissue of Oral Potentially Malignant Disorders and Malignancy-A Diagnostic Study

Background: Oral cancers are mostly being preceded by oral potentially malignant disorders (OPMD). Early diagnosis of oral cancer or OPMDs speed up treatment and improve prognosis. Raman spectroscopy of blood, urine, saliva and tissue samples collected from OPMD and oral cancer patients were compared with similar samples from normal controls.

Mass Dimension Evaluation of the Optic Nerve Head Micro Vascularity in Non-Glaucomatous Optic Neuropathies

In several diseases, fractal analysis has been proven useful to give contribution in diagnosis and prognosis of the patient and to improve treatments. In the present work we have evaluated the mass dimension of the vascular pattern of optic nerve head in non-glaucomatous optic neuropathic patients and healthy controls. Static fluorescein angiogram was performed and the images of the early venous phase were saved.

Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome Revealed by Oral Kaposi's Sarcoma

Kaposi's sarcoma is the malignant proliferation of the endothelial cell vessels. It is a systemic, malignant and multifactor disease. It usually presents initially as violaceous cutaneous lesions. Outside of a known context of an immune deficiency, an isolated oral lesions may not think to Kaposi's sarcoma. Hence the interest of the histological and immunohistochemical study.

The Effect of Ozone Gas on Dentin Shear Bond Strength

Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of ozone used as cavity disinfectant on dentin bond strength of resin-based restorative material.
Material and Method: The study included 36 adult 3rd molar teeth removed for surgical reasons. Each tooth was set in a cylindrical mould 2cm in diameter and 3cm high with the dentin surface parallel to the occlusal level and the roots remaining inside, with the help of autopolymerising acrylic.
