Zygomaticocoronoid ankylosis with possible myositis ossificans: a very rare case
AbstractAnkylosis forming between the zygomatic arch and the coronoid process is a rarely encountered pathological extracapsular ankylosis. Its treatment protocol consists of surgical removal of the coronoid process with the ankylotic mass and jaw opening-closing exercises after surgery. Myositis ossificans (MO) is a self-limiting, benign ossifying lesion. It affects all types of soft tissues including subcutaneous adipose tissue, muscles, tendons and nerves. It is most frequently found in the muscle as a solitary lesion. The clinical appearance of MO is generally in the form of a mass characterized with an ossified soft t...

A technical report on the hamular technique for radiographing maxillary anterior teeth using a digital sensor
ConclusionPreliminary results showed that while the HT images were magnified, lighter, and less sharp that the VAT, they were diagnosable for caries. In all the HT images presented in this technical report, there was less distortion than comparable techniques. Notably, one HT periapical radiograph of a maxillary lateral implant showed virtually no distortion, suggesting that a nearly parallel projection was achieved using the technique. While further research is needed, this report shows that the HT has the potential to produce minimally distorted digital radiographs of anterior teeth in patients where the sensor cannot ad...
