Özet

Purpose: Ki67 and p53 protein expressions are the most widely used markers to show the pathologic proliferation and early-stage tumoral alterations in vital tissues. The aim of this study was to compare Ki67 and p53 protein expressions in smokers' and nonsmokers' pericoronal follicles of asymptomatic impacted lower third molars (ILTMs).
