Skeletal Class II correction in deceleration phase of growth is both a challenge and dilemma with choice between extraction and myofunctional therapy. With marginal growth remaining the convenient choice is extraction for camouflage of the skeletal discrepancy. On the other hand, the treatment with Fixed Functional Appliances (FFAs) helps in resolution of the problem without sacrificing the dentition. However, the conventional FFAs requires a phase of alignment which results in further loss of time to utilize any remaining growth...

Twin Block appliance has been widely used for the treatment of Class II malocclusions in growing subjects, due to its versatility and its highly compliance nature. There are certain clinical indications where functional appliances can be used successfully in Class II malocclusion as in a growing patient. In using these appliances, the main concern is compliance of patients. This appliance simplifies the progression of treatment with fixed orthodontic braces later on. In this case, a 14-year-old adolescent was treated with Twin Block appliance followed by fixed appliances for finishing and detailing...

Early treatment of scissor bite has been advocated mainly to prevent function jaw shift that can eventually lead to permanent skeletal asymmetry and temporomandibular joint pathosis. Although unilateral scissor bite is more common, most of the times, bilateral mandibular expansion is indicated. Lingual transforce appliance can be useful in such cases. This article presents a patient with unilateral scissor bite in mixed dentition with alveolar narrowing. Transforce appliance was used for scissor bite correction followed by modified twin block appliance for stabilization and settling of occlusion till the eruption of premolars...

INTRODUCTION: Bone remodeling is a tightly regulated process influenced by chemokines. ACKR2 is a decoy receptor for CC chemokines functioning as regulator of inflammatory response. In this study we investigated whether the absence of ACKR2 would affect bone phenotype and remodeling induced by mechanical loading. METHODS: An orthodontic appliance was placed between incisors and first molar of ACKR2 deficient (ACKR2(-/-)) and C57BL6/J (wild-type/WT) mice. Microtomography, histology and qPCR were performed to evaluate bone parameters, orthodontic tooth movement (OTM), bone cells counts and the expression of ACKR2, bone remodeling markers, CC chemokines and chemokines receptors...

OBJECTIVES: Aim of this study was to develop a finite element model of the forces that patients with rapid maxillary expansion bear and to validate it by a mechanical test. METHODS: Computer-aided design models of the metallic screw and polymeric splint were modelled and discretized. Two forces were generated and considered independently: F1 at the temporary molar (2.5 N) and F2 at the permanent molar (2.5 N). The results of the finite element analysis were used to define the strain values which the anterior and posterior arms of the rapid maxillary expansion appliance bore as a linear function of F1-F2 by calculating the strain-force coefficient δ ij ...

Piezocision (corticotomy) is a minimally invasive approach that involves micro-incisions, piezoelectric incisions, and selective tunnelling for soft or hard tissue grafting. Piezocision has many uses in orthodontics, but its uses in cross-bite cases are limited. This case report illustrates the outcomes of a 19-year-old female patient with unilateral cross-bite that was treated with a minimally invasive piezocision with bone grafting in the affected side. In addition, she also had a functional shift, severe crowding, and mid-line shift...

Electromagnetic radiation (EMR) emitting from the natural environment, as well as from the use of industrial and everyday appliances, constantly influence the human body. The effect of this type of energy on living tissues may exert various effects on their functioning, although the mechanisms conditioning this phenomenon have not been fully explained. It may be expected that the interactions between electromagnetic radiation and the living organism would depend on the amount and parameters of the transmitted energy and type of tissue exposed...
