INTRODUCTION: When the mandibular permanent second molar becomes impacted, it is identified as a malocclusion that needs treatment as it often leads to unwanted complications such as caries and periodontitis of the adjacent permanent first molar. Other less common complications include root resorption of the adjacent first molar root or continued root development to be in close proximity to the inferior dental alveolar nerve. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This paper seeks to differentiate various levels of severity of impaction and review treatment options that are considered clinically available for the proper management of the impacted mandibular permanent second molar...

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...

OBJECTIVE: To compare, through cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), the root resorption and treatment efficiency of two different mini-implant-assisted modalities in intruding the maxillary incisors. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-two adults who had deep bite and elongated maxillary incisors were randomly allocated to two groups: anterior mini-implant group (AMG) and posterior mini-implant group (PMG). In the AMG, approximately 40 g of force was applied per side with elastic chains from mini-implants placed between the lateral incisors and canines and in the PMG, with beta-titanium wires from mini-implants placed between the second premolars and first molars...

BACKGROUND: This article compared the use of temporary skeletal anchorage devices (TSADs) and orthognathic surgery for scissors bite correction. METHODS: To correct the scissors bite without orthognathic surgery, a cross-type titanium miniplate was placed with 3 miniscrews (1.5 mm in diameter and 5 mm in length) in the midpalatal area, without a surgical incision and under local anesthesia. In addition, a 1 miniscrew was placed on the buccal alveolar bone to avoid molar extrusion during uprighting...

Mesially tilted or impacted mandibular molars cause occlusal disharmony and periodontal problems. For proper restoration of the occlusion and to prevent further periodontal damage, uprighting of tilted molars is the recommended treatment option. Although several orthodontic methods including miniscrews have been proposed, most of them have innate limitations and problems such as the possibility of unwanted tooth movement. In this case series, we introduce a new system that uses 2 miniscrews with slots that can accommodate rectangular orthodontic wires to 3 dimensionally control the tilted molar in 3 patients...

A commonly encountered problem in prosthetic dentistry is the supra eruption of teeth due to absence of opposing teeth. Consequently, replacement of the missing teeth with prosthesis becomes difficult due to lack of vertical dimension of the edentulous area. This article describes the space regaining procedure in a 14-year-old female patient who wanted a fixed prosthesis for her missing maxillary 1st molar. On examination, it was observed that mandibular 1st molar had supraerupted and tipped lingually. After considering the various treatment modalities it was decided to simultaneously intrude and upright the mandibular molar using a mini-implant...

INTRODUCTION: Uprighting a tipped molar by using an uprighting spring is a fundamental orthodontic treatment technique. Following a weak anchorage done only by the anterior teeth the permanent lower second molar will rotate around its center of resistance, and besides the distalizing movement will occur its extrusion. Following the reaction, the mandibular anterior teeth will have a movement of intrusion. All these elements will lead to anterior open bite. Correction of vertical problems has become easier with the advent of mini-implants...
