Dental trauma is one of the most common and significant problems met in all dental offices almost every day. In particular, injury to the anterior teeth is more vulnerable as it may affect the psychosocial behavior, severe emotional complications can occur leading to disturbances in their mental attitude. Cosmetic (lingual) orthodontics is the recent development in the field of dentistry in the last few decades. Patients are more concerned about their appearance during the treatment and are affected by psychosocial issues because of labially placed brackets, thus leading to the evolution of lingual orthodontic appliances...

To achieve optimum occlusal and facial results in a patient with high-angle maxillary protrusion, it is important to move Point A back with retraction of the anterior teeth and prevent clockwise rotation of the mandible through good vertical control. A woman, aged 42 years 5 months, with a protrusive profile sought lingual orthodontic treatment. She had a skeletal Class II high-angle pattern with maxillary protrusion and mandibular retrusion. The extraction of the 4 first premolars was indicated to correct the problems...

OBJECTIVES: Successful orthodontic treatment presupposes that the esthetic and functional outcomes are maintained. Bonded retainers on the incisors and canines provide this stability. Failure of one or two units exposes the teeth to a relapse. This article describes the use of a retainer wire and an elastic device to provide rapid, effective and esthetic correction of incipient crowding. CLINICAL ASPECTS: After removing the retainer, a fixed appliance comprising a replacement retainer and a clear elastic are positioned...

Adult demand for orthodontics has grown considerably over the past 10 years propelling increased demand for Esthetic Orthodontics. Lingual appliances are a viable option toward providing Esthetic Orthodontics. The lingual surface of the teeth has a unique morphology that makes it difficult to place brackets in ideal positions. Indirect bonding has become the established methods of overcoming these discrepancies, along with the latest designs of self ligating brackets which offer more efficient mechanics and shorter treatment time...

OBJECTIVES: A transpalatal arch (TPA) directly connecting the maxillary first molars can be used in passive (for stabilization) and active (for molar or segment movement) modes. Activation may be symmetric or asymmetric. This study was performed to analyze the effectiveness of TPAs for transverse expansion treatment by measuring both the force systems they deliver and the clinical tooth movements thus achieved. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ten patients (six with symmetric and four with asymmetric transverse discrepancies) were treated using a TPA made of titanium-molybdenum alloy (TMA) and fitted with 0...
