The case of a 47-year-old female patient with an asymmetric traumatic occlusion, great alveolar destruction in the mandibular left central incisor, gingival recession with attachment loss and lack o fkeratinized tissue more accentuated in the crossbite teeth is described. This situation was caused by the traumatic position of the teeth, aggravated by a forced asymmetric anterior position of the mandible and aggravated by mandibular movements. After the extraction of the left central mandibular incisor, keratinized tissue reconstruction and alveolar bone regeneration were performed to obtain enough bone to move the adjacent teeth in this direction and allow the correct placement of an implant at the end of orthodontic treatment...

This paper describes the clinical orthodontic treatment of two cases treated by the recipient of the 2010 Membership in Orthodontics William Houston Gold Medal of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. The first case describes a three-phase treatment approach to correct a class II division 2 malocclusion on a non-extraction basis. The second case describes the treatment of a class III malocclusion with a notable unilateral crossbite using a quad-helix, a single premolar extraction and upper and lower pre-adjusted fixed appliances...

Single tooth anterior dental crossbite is the commonly encountered malocclusion during the development of occlusion in children. Various treatment options such as removable and fixed appliances have been suggested by different authors in the past literature. This paper presents two cases of anterior crossbite corrected using the standard Catlan's appliance (Lower Inclined Bite Plane) in a short period of three weeks without any damage to the tooth or the periodontium. This fixed appliance is a simple and traditional method which does not depend on patient cooperation to reverse the bite...

The objective of this article was to report a clinical case of a patient with solitary median maxillary central incisor syndrome. He was treated with rapid maxillary expansion and evaluated with computed tomography. The boy, aged 6 years 7 months, had a single maxillary central incisor in the midline, posterior crossbite, prominent midpalatal ridge, indistinct philtrum, no incisive papilla, and no labial frenulum. No other systemic anomalies were found. Posteroanterior cephalometric radiography showed skeletal atresia of the maxilla that was corrected with rapid maxillary expansion...

Implant restoration in the anterior maxilla is a true challenge for clinicians. Facial tissue recession around the implant prosthesis is one of most difficult situations to correct. This report details the treatment of a female patient who presented with a root fracture of the maxillary left central incisor and crossbite of the left canines. The treatment protocol included implant placement and subsequent orthodontic treatment to correct the crossbite, with the implant used as adjunctive anchorage. However, labial tissue recession around the implant restoration occurred following orthodontic therapy...

INTRODUCTION: Because of the severity of some malocclusions, it is not always possible to treat them without a combination of orthodontics and orthognathic surgery. However, many insurance carriers have difficulty in deciding whether such treatment should be covered. The purpose of this study was to develop a simple method that can be used by insurance carriers to determine when a malocclusion is not correctable by orthodontics alone. METHODS: Twenty-eight orthodontists independently evaluated 30 sets of pretreatment dental models (10 with overjet from -6 to 12 mm, 10 with overbite from 60% to 100%, and 10 with transverse discrepancies from single tooth to total arch crossbite) to determine whether the conditions were orthodontically treatable...
