    Oral mucositis (OM) induces severe pain and limits fundamental life behaviors such as eating, drinking, and talking for patients receiving chemotherapy or radiotherapy. In addition, through opportunistic microorganisms, OM frequently leads to systemic infection which then leads to prolonged hospitalization. Severe lesions often adversely affect curative effects in cancer cases. Therefore, the control of OM is important for oral health quality of life and prognosis. Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) and ozone may be useful to accelerate wound healing. In this study, 24 Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into three groups as control, ozone, and laser groups. All groups received 5-fluorouracil intraperitoneally and trauma to the mouth pouch with a needle. After the formation of OM in the mouth, the control group had no treatment; the ozone group was administered ozone, and the laser group, LLLT. Then, all groups were sacrificed and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), transforming growth factor (TGF-beta), and platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) were evaluated in all groups. LLLT was determined to be statistically significantly more effective than ozone on FGF and PDGF. However, in respect of TGF-beta, no statistically significant difference was observed between the groups. In conclusion, within the limitations of this study, LLLT is more effective than ozone. However, further studies on this subject are required.

    Recurrent Cherubism in an Adult Patient
    (2015-05-01T00:00:00Z) Demirtas, Nihat; Barut, Oya; ÖZCAN, İlknur; BAYER, SUZAN; Kazancioglu, Hakki Oguz; BAYER, SUZAN
    Cherubism is an uncommon, nonneoplastic, fibro-osseous disorder of the jaws in childhood and adolescence. It affects the jaw bones by deforming the cortical shell. Clinical features include progressive painless and mostly bilateral expansion of the mandible and/or maxilla. Because fibrous connective tissue replaces osseous tissue, radiographic features generally include expansile osteolytic lesions and a ground-glass appearance. Several treatment protocols for cherubism have been recommended in the literature; however, despite surgical curettage treatment, recurrences may occur.

    Limitations of Panoramic Radiographs: Report of Two Cases
    (2014-09-01T00:00:00Z) Demirtas, Nihat; Mihmanli, Ahmet; Aytugar, Emre; BAYER, SUZAN; BAYER, SUZAN
    Panoramic radiographs are valuable and technically easy procedures in determining lesions and the other pathological conditions of the jaw. However, it should be recognized that there are obvious limitations in these films. These limitations include distortions, magnifications, and difficulties in identifying the relationship of the lesions with vital structures.

    Fracture of the Mandibular Ramus During Third Molar Removal: Case Report
    (2014-12-01T00:00:00Z) Mihmanli, Ahmet; BAYER, SUZAN; Demirtas, Nihat; Kazancioglu, Hakki Oguz; BAYER, SUZAN
    Impacted tooth extraction is one of the most common operations in oral surgery. Although practitioners may encounter a variety of complications in the surgical period, mandibular fracture is rare and generally seen during third molar removal. It is reported that possible predisposing conditions include increased age, mandibular atrophy, concurrent presence of cyst or tumor, and osteoporosis. The detection of jaw fractures occurring in tooth extraction may be difficult. Moreover, treatment should be done immediately.
