This work aimed to evaluate an alternative form of maxillary expansion anchored with mini-implants. A patient 12 years, class III in permanent canine teeth, with multiple agenesis of upper posterior teeth was treated with the aid of four mini-implants in the palate and Haas modified type appliance. During the period of expansion, an interincisal diastema was observed as the first clinical sign of disjunction of the sutures. After correction of cross bite, the expansion of the palate was confirmed by upper occlusal radiographs...

Conventionally the use of surgical assisted tooth movement is to hasten orthodontic tooth movement. In this article, a case of 13 year-old male with oligodontia has been described in whom piezocision has been used to improve bone turnover and remodeling in long standing edentulous spaces which have less medullary bone and more cortical bone.

Bi-maxillary protrusion in adolescent patients has traditionally been treated by extraction of the four first premolars and retraction ofthe anterior teeth. The ectopic eruption of the maxiIlary permanent canines is a frequently encountered clinical problem. Orthodontic treatment of the impacted teeth remains a challenge for clinicians. If it is associated with other dental and skeletalproblems, there will be further complications to the treatment plan. In such cases, if we extract canines, then problems with this approach are restricted to anatomical and functional limitations ofpremolars substitution of canines...

Reading a complete print-out of cephalometric analysis expressed numerically consumes a fair amount of our time. The present paper addresses this issue by describing the "color wheel," a computerized procedure that attributes to the patient a single color representing type and severity of a skeletalproblem.

UNLABELLED: The role of the third molars in lower arch crowding has been debated for more than a century. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between lower arch crowding and the presence of angulation and position of lower third molar. METHODS AND MATERIALS: The measurements of the dental arch were made in 120 subjects aged 16 to 21 years, with average age to 18 years. The subjects were divided into two groups: Class I normal occlusion comprised 35 male and 25 female with mean age 18...

Ingestion/aspiration episodes of foreign bodies are potential complications in almost all branches of dentistry. Occasionally, orthodontic appliances or small orthodontic components are accidentally swallowed and have caused problems with either the airway or the gastrointestinal tract, especially where the patient is supine or semi-recumbent. Despite their rare occurrence, the morbidity from a single incident and the level of specialized medical care that may be needed on emergency basis to manage such incidents is too high to ignore...

UNLABELLED: Revalence of impaction of mandibular permanent second molars is between 0.06 and 2.3 percent. In order to reduce treatment time and complications associated with tooth impaction, intervention should take place once the problem is detected. The usual treatment options consists of surgical exposure, luxation of the impacted tooth, extraction of adjacent third molar, orthodontic treatment, and uprighting with brass wires or mini-screws. AIM: The present paper reports a case of bilateral impaction of mandibular permanent second molars ' (MM2s) treated with extraction of the mandibular third molars (MM3s) and surgical-orthodontic uprighting with the brass wire technique...

Growing skeletal class II malocclusions with mandibular deficiency have been treated for more than a century with different types of functional appliances. Removable or fixed functional appliances are available to advance the mandible. Fixed functional appliances have the advantage of not requiring patient compliance. They can also be used concurrently with brackets. This article presents the case reports of successfully treated mild skeletal class II in late stages of puberty by using a Forsus fatigue resistance appliance along with custom made crimp...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the dentoskeletal effects of intrusion of the lower incisor teeth by mini-screws. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Ten patients were selected from the outpatient clinic of the Department of Orthodontics, Faculty of Dentistry, Mansoura University with Angle's Class II division I malocclusions. Age ranged from 15 to 18 years (15.4 year mean) with deep overbite (more than 1/3 the crown height of the lower incisors covered) requiring intrusion of the lower incisors...

Orthodontic treatment for skeletal Class II malocclusion was undertaken with the aim ofachieving orthopedic correction by modifying the growth pattern. A case of Class II, Division 1 malocclusion in the late mixed dentition was corrected to a Class I molar relationship by primarily using cervical-pull headgear. Cephalometric analysis indicated a reduction in the maxillo-mandibular discrepancy (ANB°) due to the correction of a skeletal Class II malocclusion to a Class I occlusion. The superimposition demonstrated that this was achieved by favorable growth of the mandible, control of maxillary first molars in an antero-posterior direction and retraction of maxillary incisors...

An anterior open bite is one of the most difficult occlusal abnormalities to treat. Quite often this aberration entails dental component and/or skeletal component. The skeletal open bite will require intrusion of the posterior sextants with the assistance of bite blocks, temporary anchorage devices, high pull headgear, and as a last resort - orthognathic surgery. The orthodontic treatment should be augmented with the orofacial myofunctional therapy. In this article, the author describes 3 different variations of treatment of the dental anterior open bite, first on acrylic models, and then on the actual patients...

Nutrition plays an important role, especially key vitamins D3 and K2 which are necessary for proper dentofacial development and food consistency influence on crowding and dental arches narrowing. Changes in our dentition and facial appearance are caused by changing our diet from primitive hunter gatherer to a more modern industrialized agriculture. Nutrition and its impact on epigeneticaly- mediated mechanisms continuously shape our phenotype which impacts overall health and can reverse the path for overall health and facial bone development...

The use of CBCT technology in the dental office is increasing rapidly. These scans provide information on anatomy not previously evaluated with traditional 2D films. One structure often mentioned in a CBCT radiology report is the pineal gland. The pineal gland will show evidence of calcification, but this calcification is often dismissed as a normal aging process. This review of the function and influence of the pineal gland may influence the doctor to complete further evaluation of the patient.

Fixed bonded retainers are increasingly being recommended as the only way to ensure long-term stability of an orthodontic treatment result. However, frequent debonding of the fixed bonded retainer is a constant source of frustration for the orthodontist. Bond failure is most commonly attributed to the difficulty encountered in stabilizing the retainer wire in the precise position during the bonding process. This paper presents a clinical approach that makes use of Kansal Separator; a self-secured orthodontic spring separator as a simple, efficient, and dependable fixed retainer stabilizer...
