INTRODUCTION: Our objective was to examine the Teen Oral Health-related Quality of Life (TOQOL) questionnaire for use in adults receiving orthodontic treatment and assess validity and reliability by age group. METHODS: Teenagers from 10 to 18 years and adults 18 and over completed surveys at the orthodontic clinic at Boston University. The survey consisted of sociodemographic information, dental behavior questions, and the TOQOL instrument. Malocclusion severity was assessed using the Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need...

OBJECTIVES: For decades, Erich arch bars have been a standard in establishing maxillo-mandibular fixation (MMF). While reliable, the approach risks sharps injury, consumes operating room time, and inflicts gingival trauma. Newer technologies including screw-based techniques and "hybrid" techniques have improved MMF by reducing sharps injuries and operating room time, but risk injury to tooth roots, nerves, and gingiva. This study aims to establish the application, strengths, and limitations of dental occlusion ties as a novel alternative in maxillo-mandibular fixation...

BACKGROUND: Children with sickle cell disease may have their quality of life affected by oral alterations. However, there is still little data on oral health-related quality of life in these children. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of sickle cell disease, socioeconomic characteristics, and oral conditions on oral health-related quality of life of children and teens. METHOD: One hundred and six children and teens with sickle cell disease were compared to a similar sample of 385 healthy peers...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of malocclusion severity on oral health-related quality of life and food intake ability in adult patients, controlling for sex, age, and the type of dental clinic visited. METHODS: The sample consisted of 472 Korean patients (156 male, 316 female) with a mean age of 21.1 (SD, 8.6) years in a dental hospital and a private clinic. The correlations between the Korean version of the Oral Health Impact Profile-14 (OHIP-14K), subjective food intake ability (FIA) for 5 key foods, and Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need-Dental Health Component (IOTN-DHC) were investigated...

OBJECTIVES: The facial bones are the most noticeable area in the human body, and facial injuries can cause significant functional, aesthetic, and psychological complications. Continuous study of the patterns of facial bone fractures and changes in trends is helpful in the prevention and treatment of maxillofacial fractures. The purpose of the current clinico-statistical study is to investigate the pattern of facial fractures over a 4-year period. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis of 1,824 fracture sites was carried out in 1,284 patients admitted to SMG-SNU Boramae Medical Center for facial bone fracture from January 2010 to December 2013...

A wide variety of disease processes produce alteration of midfacial skeletal growth, resulting in moderate-to-severe midface deficiency presenting as retrusion associated with Angle's class III malocclusion. Most cases of midface deficiency are seen in patients of cleft lip/palate. The surgical procedure to correct the clefts, undertaken over a long period of time from infancy to the teens tends to take its toll on the soft tissues over the midface. The scarring that is a feature in these conditions results in hampering of normal growth of the midface causing the deformity...

OBJECTIVE: To clarify the correlation between variations in maximum occlusal force and the maxillofacial skeletal pattern in subjects with malocclusion using a compact device. DESIGN: Three hundred and fifty patients (150 males 200 females) with malocclusion were included. The male and female subjects were divided into five groups each based on chronological age. The maximum occlusal force was measured with a simplified occlusal force meter. The maxillofacial skeletal pattern was analyzed with lateral cephalograms...

AIM: To describe the results of a cross-national survey of orthodontists' preferences regarding initiating treatment at various dentition stages. Previous research has demonstrated high acceptance of early intervention by parents and children, and, in many cases, better compliance with treatment protocols among younger children than among adolescents. METHODS: The current study questioned orthodontists in three countries. The identical survey, translated from English to Turkish and Italian, was administered to 137 American, 104 Italian, and 62 Turkish orthodontists...

Two basic strategies for the timing of treatment for Class II malocclusions in children are common: (1) correction achieved in two phases, one during pre-adolescence (early treatment) and the other during the teen years; and (2) correction accomplished in one phase of active treatment during the adolescent years. The issues of efficacy and cost(risk)-benefit of these strategies have not been well delineated. Most clinical studies examining these issues have suffered serious methodological deficiencies, such as being retrospective, lacking adequate controls, and evaluating only successfully treated cases...

Head posture and dentofacial status of sixteen females and six males 12 to 34 years of age, who had been treated for scoliosis with a Boston-brace in their teens was investigated clinically and radiologically. When compared to an age and sex-matched sample the main findings were an increased craniocervical angle, particularly in frontal view; rotated orbital, maxillary and mandibular planes, a midline shift of the lower dental arch and a flattened atlas dorsal arch combined with an elongation of the dens axis...

Four major criterion groups--orthodontic retention patients, prospective orthodontic patients, a population sample, and mothers of prospective patients--were established. Appropriate relationships between groups and subgroups were studied with regard to body-image and self-concept satisfaction, to body-image and self-concept importance, and other factors. The findings include the following: 1. There was no significant difference in body-image and self-concept satisfaction of importance between prospective orthodontic patients and the population sample...
