      Introduction Our aim was to evaluate the stability of orthodontic treatment outcome and retention status 7 or more years after active treatment in relation to posttreatment or postretention time, type of retention appliance, and duration of retainer use. Methods The subjects were former patients who completed orthodontic treatment with fixed appliances from 2000 to 2007. The pretreatment eligibility criteria were anterior crowding of 4 mm or more in the maxilla or the mandible and Angle Class I or Class II sagittal molar relationship. Acceptable pretreatment and posttreatment dental casts were required. A total of 67 patients participated, 24 men and 43 women, with a mean age of 24.7 years (range, 20.0-50.0 years). All participants had a follow-up clinical examination, which included impressions for follow-up casts, and each completed a questionnaire. Data were obtained from pretreatment, posttreatment, and follow-up (T2) casts as well as from the patients' dental records. Treatment stability was evaluated with the peer assessment rating (PAR) index and Little's irregularity index. Results The participation rate was 64%. The average posttreatment time was 8.5 years (range, 7.0-11.0). All participants had received a retainer in the mandible, maxilla, or both after active treatment. At T2, the PAR score showed a mean relapse of 14%. The majority (78%) of participants still had a fixed retainer at T2 (retainer group), and 22% had been out of retention for at least 1 year (postretention group). The relapse according to the PAR did not differ significantly between participants with and without a retainer at T2. From posttreatment to T2, the irregularity of the mandibular incisors increased almost 3 times more in participants with no retainer in the mandible compared with those with an intact retainer at T2 (P = 0.001). In the maxilla, no corresponding difference was found. Conclusions Our results suggest that occlusal relapse can be expected after active orthodontic treatment irrespective of long-term use of fixed retainers. Fixed canine-to-canine retainers seem effective to maintain mandibular incisor alignment, whereas in the maxilla a fixed retainer may not make any difference in the long term.

      Introduction A randomized split-mouth experiment was performed in dogs to determine the effects of bone grafting, together with corticotomies and buccal tooth movements, on dehiscence formation. Methods Bilateral full-thickness mucoperiosteal buccal flaps were raised, and corticotomies were performed with a piezosurgery unit adjacent to the maxillary second premolars in 7 dogs. The experimental (graft+) side received a demineralized freeze-dried allograph and a resorbable collagen membrane. The second premolars were expanded with archwires for 9 weeks, followed by 3 weeks of consolidation. Soft tissue measurements included probing depths, attachment loss, and recession. Tooth movements were monitored using intraoral, radiographic, and model measurements. Bone surrounding the second premolars was evaluated with microcomputed tomography. New bone formation was analyzed histologically using calcein and alizarin fluorescent labels, and hematoxylin and eosin stains. Results Postsurgical healing progressed normally with no signs of infection. The graft+ and control (graft−) second premolars underwent similar amounts of expansion (about 2.5 mm intraorally; about 1.7 mm radiographically) and tipping, with no statistically significant side differences. The soft tissue periodontium was not affected on either side. There were bony dehiscences on both the graft+ and graft− sides, with slightly but significantly (P = 0.038) more bone loss over the mesial root on the graft− side. Bone material density was significantly (P = 0.028) greater on the graft+ side. Buccal bone apposition was evident surrounding graft particles, and mineralized particulate graft material was present at the apical aspect of the roots on the graft+ side. Conclusions Bone grafting does not prevent dehiscence formation because only a limited amount of new bone is formed, primarily at the more apical aspects of the tooth's roots.

      Introduction In this nonrandomized prospective study, we compared the effects of the surgery-first approach with conventional 2-jaw orthognathic surgery on skeletal Class III patients' oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL), quality of the orthodontic outcome, and average treatment duration. Methods The sample consisted of 16 patients with severe skeletal Class III malocclusion, who needed 2-jaw orthognathic surgery: 8 were treated with the surgery-first approach, and 8 were treated with the traditional orthodontic-surgical approach. OHRQoL was assessed by using the Orthognathic Quality of Life Questionnaire (OQLQ) and the Oral Health Impact Profile-short version (OHIP-14). Malocclusion severity and esthetic self-perception were assessed with the Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need. Dental health status was determined using the Decayed, Missing and Filled Teeth Index. Tests were repeated at 7 times: baseline, 1 month after appliance placement, and 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, and 2 years after the beginning of the treatment; and for both groups, there was an also evaluation stage after the orthognathic surgery. Results After 2 years, the surgery-first group showed a significant decrease in malocclusion severity (P <0.001) and had significant reductions in OQLQ (P <0.001) and OHIP-14 scores (P <0.001). These changes began after the orthognathic surgery and were progressive throughout the evaluation periods. In the traditional orthodontic-surgical approach group, after 2 years of monitoring, all patients were still in the preoperative orthodontic preparation phase, and their malocclusion severity increased significantly, thereby resulting in a not statistically significant worsening of their OHRQoL (OHIP-14, P = 0.89; OQLQ, P = 0.11). Conclusions OHRQoL improved significantly in a linear trend of progressive improvements in all severe Class III patients who had the surgery-first approach after the surgical procedure through 2 years of follow-up, as their malocclusion and esthetic self-perception also improved.

      Introduction The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the effects of posterior bite-blocks on masseter muscles and on facial growth in prepubertal dolichofacial subjects. Methods The treatment group comprised 21 consecutive prepubertal dolichofacial patients treated with rapid maxillary expansion followed by mandibular removable bite-blocks. Lateral cephalograms and ultrasonographic scans of the masseter muscles were made before (T1) and after (T2) treatment with bite-blocks. The treatment group was compared with a control group of 21 subjects matched for sex, age, and skeletal vertical pattern. An independent samples t test was used to compare the T1 to T2 changes in ultrasonographic scan measurements between the treatment group and the control group, and the T1 to T2 cephalometric changes in the treatment group. Regression analysis was performed to investigate associations between masseter muscle thickness and cephalometric treatment outcomes. Results Masseter muscle thickness showed a statistically significant decrease (−0.7 mm) in the treatment group compared with an increase (+0.6 mm) in the control group. A significant anterior rotation of the mandibular plane was observed in the treatment group as well as significant increases in overbite (1.8 mm) and total posterior facial height (1.5 mm). No significant associations were found between masseter muscle thickness and treatment outcomes apart from a tendency for overbite to increase more in subjects with thicker muscles. Conclusions Treatment with removable bite-blocks produced a decrease in masseter muscle thickness and a reduction in vertical facial dimensions due to upward and forward rotation of the mandible. No significant correlation was found between the pretreatment masseter muscle thickness and the T1 to T2 cephalometric changes in the treatment group.

      Introduction A deeper and more thorough characterization of why patients do or do not seek orthodontic treatment is needed for effective shared decision making about receiving treatment. Previous orthodontic qualitative research has identified important dimensions that influence treatment decisions, but our understanding of patients’ decisions and how they interpret benefits and barriers of treatment are lacking. The objectives of this study were to expand our current list of decision-making dimensions and to create a conceptual framework to describe the decision-making process. Methods Discussion boards, rich in orthodontic decision-making data, were identified and analyzed with qualitative methods. An iterative process of data collection, dimension identification, and dimension refinement were performed to saturation. A conceptual framework was created to describe the decision-making process. Results Fifty-four dimensions captured the ideas discussed in regard to a patient's decision to receive orthodontic treatment. Ten domains were identified: function, esthetics, psychosocial benefits, diagnosis, finances, inconveniences, risks of treatment, individual aspects, societal attitudes, and child-specific influences, each containing specific descriptive and conceptual dimensions. A person's desires, self-perceptions, and viewpoints, the public's views on esthetics and orthodontics, and parenting philosophies impacted perceptions of benefits and barriers associated with orthodontic treatment. Conclusions We identified an expanded list of dimensions, created a conceptual framework describing the orthodontic patient's decision-making process, and identified dimensions associated with yes and no decisions, giving doctors a better understanding of patient attitudes and expectations.

      Introduction The aim of this in-vitro study was to evaluate the influence of cone-beam computed tomography scans on the diagnosis of chemically simulated external root resorption. Methods One hundred extracted anterior teeth were selected. Subsurface demineralization was induced on a limited area of the apical third of the root of 49 teeth. Each tooth was placed in an empty socket of a partially edentulous dry mandible. Cone-beam computed tomography images were obtained according to 3 protocols: (1) half scan, 0.40-mm voxel size; (2) full scan, 0.40-mm voxel size; and (3) full scan, 0.125-mm voxel size. Three observers evaluated the images. Sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, and area under the curve were compared with the Cochran Q and Mann-Whitney U tests. Results Protocol 3 had the highest sensitivity (81.63%), accuracy (80.67%), and area under the curve (0.807). There were statistically significant differences between protocol 3 and the other 2 protocols (P <0.001). The specificity of protocol 1 (84.97%) was greater than that of protocols 2 (69.93%) and 3 (79.74%); however, a statistically significant difference was found only between protocols 1 and 2 (P = 0.005). Conclusions A more dedicated, high-resolution scan should be acquired when one intends to investigate the early stage of external root resorption during orthodontic treatment. However, this does not imply that all orthodontic patients should be subjected to high-dose cone-beam computed tomography scans.

      Introduction Cephalometrics has been the foundation of orthodontic diagnosis for many years. However, for many orthodontic patients, a lateral cephalogram might not be necessary. The aim of this study was to compare the diagnosis and treatment planning agreement between standard records and nonradiographic 3-dimensional (3D) dentofacial photogrammetry records. Methods Twenty patients had standard orthodontic records taken for their treatment as well as extraoral and intraoral 3D images. Twelve evaluators examined the standard records and then completed diagnosis and treatment planning questionnaires. They repeated the process 4 to 6 weeks later by using 3D photographic images along with the panoramic radiographs. Each evaluator also evaluated 2 random orthodontic cases twice with each method to evaluate consistency within each method. At the end of study, each evaluator was asked to complete a survey to document his or her experiences with the 3D photogrammetry method. Descriptive and kappa statistics were used to determine the agreement. Results Most diagnosis parameters had fair agreement between the methods and within each method. Skeletal and dental relationships had excellent agreement between and within the methods as well as most treatment decisions such as the need for extractions and surgery. Most evaluators (91.7%) thought that cephalometric x-rays would be needed only some of the time in diagnosis and treatment planning. Most evaluators (83.33%) thought that cephalometric radiographs are not needed in patients with a Class I ± a quarter cusp with crowding or spacing. Conclusions Most diagnostic decisions had fair agreement within and between the 2 methods. The decision to extract and the need for orthognathic surgery had excellent agreement between the cephalometric and photogrammetric methods. The majority of examiners agreed that patients with Class I malocclusions ± a quarter cusp with no obvious skeletal discrepancy can be diagnosed and planned without a cephalometric radiograph.

      Introduction The aim of this study was to evaluate dentoalveolar and arch dimension changes in 2 miniplate-anchored maxillary protraction protocols in relation to an untreated control group using 3-dimensional digital models. Methods Thirty growing Class III subjects with maxillary deficiency in the late mixed or early permanent dentition phase were randomly divided into 3 groups. In group 1 (n = 10), patients were treated with skeletally anchored facemasks anchored with miniplates placed at the zygomatic buttress. In group 2 (n = 10), patients were treated with Class III elastics extending from infrazygomatic miniplates in the maxilla to symphyseal miniplates in the mandible. Group 3 (n = 10) was an untreated control group. The decision to discontinue orthopedic treatment was made when the patients had 3 to 4 mm of positive anterior overjet. Pretreatment, posttreatment, and observation 3-dimensional digital models were analyzed, superimposed, 3 dimensionally mapped, and sectioned. Results In this study, there were no significant changes in maxillary arch depth and maxillary or mandibular intermolar width before and after maxillary protraction or after the observation period in the control group. The mandibular arch depth decreased by a small but statistically significant amount only in groups 1 and 3. Superimposition of the pretreatment and posttreatment or observation maxillary 3-dimensional digital models showed minimal clinically significant dentoalveolar changes. Conclusions Miniplate-anchored maxillary protraction protocols can accomplish maxillary advancement by eliminating movements of teeth and dentoalveolar changes. No spontaneous improvement in transverse deficiency was detected after correction of the anteroposterior deficiency at this age. Consequently, patients with transverse maxillary deficiency should have rapid maxillary expansion before or during the miniplate-anchored protraction period to improve the transverse deficiency.

      Introduction We explored the gene expression profile altered by orthodontic tooth movement (OTM) during the healing of surgical alveolar defects in beagles. Methods An OTM-related healing model was established where a maxillary second premolar was protracted into the critical-sized defect for 6 weeks (group DT6). As controls, natural healing models without OTM were set at 2 weeks (group D2) and at 6 weeks (group D6) after surgery. Total RNAs were extracted from dissected tissue blocks containing the regenerated defects and additionally from sound alveolar bone as a baseline (group C). mRNA profiling was performed using microarray analysis. Results Functional annotations of gene clusters based on differentially expressed genes among groups indicated that the gene expression profile of group DT6 had a stronger similarity to that of group D2 than to group D6. The genes participating in high woven-bone fraction in group DT6 could be identified as TNFSF11, MMP13, SPP1, and DMP1, which were verified by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reactions. Conclusions We investigated at the gene level that OTM can affect the healing state of surgical defects serving as favorable matrices for OTM with defect regeneration. It would be a basis on selecting putative genes to be therapeutically applied for tissue-friendly accelerated orthodontics in the future.

      Introduction Our objective was to elucidate the differences in treatment outcomes caused by the different mechanics of temporary anchorage devices (TADs) and Class III elastics in patients with Class III malocclusions. Methods Records of 23 patients with Angle Class III malocclusion were selected retrospectively. All had been treated with nonextraction comprehensive orthodontic treatment; 11 were treated with TADs and 12 with Class III elastics. Pretreatment and posttreatment lateral cephalograms were used for evaluation of the treatment outcomes. A paired t test and a Student t test were used for statistical analysis. Results In both groups, proper overjet and Class I molar relationships were achieved, and the occlusal plane was rotated counterclockwise. In the elastics group, distal tipping of the mandibular molars, extrusion of the mandibular incisors and maxillary molars, clockwise rotation of the mandibular plane angle, and increased ANB angle were observed. In the TADs group, distal tipping and intrusion of the mandibular molars, bodily movement of the mandibular incisors, and reduced mandibular plane angle were observed. Conclusions In nonextraction treatment for Class III malocclusions, the mandibular plane angle was increased in the elastics group, whereas it was decreased in TADs group. Thus, we suggest that Class III elastics are preferred for low-angle, short-face patients, whereas TADs are preferred for high-angle, long-face patients.

      Introduction The aim of this study was to compare the dentoalveolar treatment effects of 3 rapid maxillary expansion (RME) appliances, supported by different tissues, on the maxilla and the mandible. Methods Patients were assessed for eligibility, and those who met the requirements and agreed to participate were enrolled in the study. Participants were randomly allocated into 3 groups, depending on the type of expansion. The tooth-borne group (n = 16; ages, 12.63 ± 1.36 years) had RME with a tooth-borne appliance; the bone-borne group (n = 16; ages, 12.92 ± 1.07 years) had RME with a bone-borne appliance; and the hybrid group (n = 15; ages, 13.41 ± 0.88 years) had RME with hybrid appliances. Dentoalveolar effects were evaluated by digitally superimposed 3-dimensional scans of maxillary dental casts on a coordinate system and linear interdental width measurements of mandibular dental casts in the pretreatment, posttreatment, and postretention periods. For intragroup and intergroup comparisons, 1-way analysis of variance for repeated measures and multivariate analysis of variance were performed, respectively. Results Similar dentoalveolar treatment effects were achieved in all groups with the exception of a small amount of expansion on the right side in the bone-borne group. Conclusions All 3 expanders led to the expansion of maxillary dentoalveolar structures with mild relapse. However, the amount of expansion of the bone-borne expander on the right side was statistically lower. Spontaneous interdental expansion was observed in the mandibular dentitions in all groups.

      Introduction The relationship between molar occlusion and chewing patterns was examined in subjects with laterally deviated mandibles. Methods Twenty-three patients with mandibular deviation from the midline (4 mm or more) and skeletal Class I (0° ≤ANB ≤4°) were divided into 2 groups: normal bite and crossbite. The chewing pattern was classified as normal, reversed, or crossover. Results The normal bite group had a normal chewing pattern on the affected side 100% of the time and a reversed chewing pattern on the affected and unaffected sides 0% and 7.2% of the time, respectively. Additionally, the normal bite group showed no evidence of a crossover chewing pattern and also had significantly less axial inclination of the mandibular teeth on the affected side compared with the crossbite group; lingual inclination was also evident. The crossbite group had a normal chewing pattern on the affected and unaffected sides 0% and 55.6% of the time, respectively, and reversed and crossover chewing patterns on the affected side 55.6% and 44.4% of the time, respectively. Conclusions A normal chewing pattern tends to result in lingual axial inclination of the mandibular molars on the affected side, as well as a more consistent chewing pattern.

      Treatment of palatally impacted and transposed canines is challenging for both orthodontists and oral surgeons. To treat a maxillary canine impaction without risking damage to adjacent teeth, it is necessary to use cone-beam computed tomography for proper localization and treatment planning. In this case report, a palatally impacted canine was initially retracted distally with a microimplant inserted in the palatal slope and then was moved buccally into its ideal position. The patient's occlusion and smile esthetics were significantly improved after orthodontic treatment.

      This case report describes the successful traction of 2 severely impacted canines. The patient, a 7-year-old girl, had good general health, nasal breathing, crossbite of the lateral incisors and canines, and a Class I molar relationship. The panoramic radiograph showed that the permanent canines were positioned above the roots of the lateral incisors, with the right canine in an accentuated inclination. The cephalometric analysis showed a skeletal Class III malocclusion with a predominance of horizontal growth. The Haas appliance associated with maxillary protraction was used during the first stage of treatment for 14 months. The second stage included the extraction of the deciduous molars, distal movement of the permanent molars to create space, and traction of the canines, and was associated with complete orthodontic treatment. The patient showed good esthetic and functional results at the end of treatment, verified by the stability over a period of 8 years after retention.

      Introduction The aim of this case report was to present the dentofacial changes obtained with bone anchorage in a Class II patient with moderate to severe crowding. Methods A boy, aged 14.5 years, with a dolichofacial type, convex profile, and skeletal and dental Class II relationships was examined. After evaluation, functional treatment with bone anchorage and 4 first premolar extractions was decided as the treatment approach. Miniplates were placed on the buccal shelves of the mandibular third molars. The hook of the anchor was revealed from the first molar level. After surgery, the 4 first premolars were extracted to retract the protrusive mandibular incisors. The maxillary and mandibular first molars were banded, and a lip bumper was inserted to apply elastics and to help distalize the maxillary first molars. Orthodontic forces of 300 to 500 g were applied immediately after placement, originating from the miniscrews to the hooks of the appliance to advance the mandible. Results After 20 months of treatment, the patient had a dental and skeletal Class I relationship, the mandible was advanced, the maxilla was restrained, and overjet was decreased. Conclusions The combination of a bone anchor, Class II elastics, and an inner bow is a promising alternative to functional treatment, along with extractions, in Class II patients.

      Introduction The aim of this study was to compare the accuracy of printed models from intraoral scans with different designs of model bases, using 2 types of 3-dimensional printing techniques. Methods Three types of model base design were created: regular base, horseshoe-shaped base, and horseshoe-shaped base with a bar connecting the posterior region. The digital models were printed with the 3-dimensional printers using different techniques: stereolithography and triple jetting technology (polyjet). The printed models were then scanned with a computed tomography scanner and a desktop laser scanner to create the respective digital models. Evaluation of the accuracy was done by measuring the dentitions with Ortho Analyzer software (3Shape, Copenhagen, Denmark) and by model superimposition with Geomagic Qualify software (3D Systems, Rock Hill, SC). An observer measured the distances twice, with an interval of 2 weeks. The accuracy of the printed models was statistically evaluated by the mixed-effects regression model approach. Results The results showed that printed models made by the polyjet printer were accurate, regardless of the design of the model base. Printed models made with the stereolithography technique with the regular model base and the horseshoe-shaped base with a bar were accurate, but the transversal distances measured on the printed models with a horseshoe-shaped base were statistically significantly smaller. Conclusions Printed models with a regular base or a horseshoe-shaped base with a bar were accurate regardless of the printing technique used. Printed models with a horseshoe-shaped base made with the stereolithography printer had a statistically significant reduction in the transversal dimension that was not found in the models printed with the polyjet technique.
