The aim of this study was to quantify the wear times of removable appliances during active orthodontic treatment.
The wear times of 141 orthodontic patients treated with active removable appliances in different locations were documented over a period of 3 months u
To collect the reference values for facial asymmetry in adults using landmark and surface-based three-dimensional analyses and to compare their diagnostic abilities.
Laser scans were taken from 85 British Caucasians, 29 males (23.9±5.7 years, range 19–4
The aim of this study was to investigate the self-estimated masticatory ability and masticatory performance in patients with dentofacial deformities before and after orthognathic treatment; in comparison to an age- and gender-matched control group.
Although secular trends have been well documented in the craniofacial region, there is no evidence to suggest that these temporal changes exist in samples used for orthodontic research. The aim of this study is to determine the effect of secular trends on craniofacial growth i
Orthodontic appliances are often removed before magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans because they are known to produce artefacts. The purpose of this study was to find the exact indications for removal of various fixed attachments when imaging four specific areas of the head
Titanium miniscrews are increasingly used as orthodontic anchorage. Various factors are known to affect the stability of miniscrew. Placement angle is one of the most controversial issues in this area. Thus, the aim of this finite element study was to evaluate the influence of placement
The aim of this study was to determine the most desirable force system to achieve molar protraction from an interdental miniscrew minimizing side-effects. Several iterations of force delivery were simulated through variations in the height of a miniscrew, length of a molar ext
Compare surface roughness of ‘aesthetic’ nickel–titanium (NiTi) archwires with their dynamic frictional properties.
Archwires investigated were: four fully coated tooth coloured [Forestadent: Biocosmetic (FB) and Titanol Cosmetic (FT); TOC Tooth Tone (TT); and Hawley Russell Coated Su
The nasolabial angle, particularly its lower component, i.e. the upper lip inclination (ULI), is an important keystone in treatment planning. Normative data for this parameter are not available.
A quantitative evaluation of the aesthetic impact of ULI on perceived attractive
Because polymer-based materials typically exhibit viscoelastic properties, the objective was to determine if commercially available, aesthetic, fibre-reinforced composite archwires maintain continuous forces without undergoing force decay when deflected continuously.
To assess the long-term success of maxillary fixed retainers, investigate their effect on gingival health, and analyse the survival rate after a mean period of 7 years (minimum 5 years) in retention.
Forty one subjects were included in the study A clinical examination of
Interleukin-4 (IL-4) is a recognized immunomodulatory cytokine that regulates bone homeostasis. However, the influence of IL-4 on orthodontic tooth movement (OTM) and subsequent root resorption is still unknown. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of IL-4 o
To compare the anatomical characteristics of the maxillary arch, identified as palatal surface area and volume, between mouth-breathing and nose-breathing subjects using a three-dimensional (3D) analysis of digital dental casts.
Twenty-one Caucasian subjects (14 females and 7 ma
To compare different imaging procedures [cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), orthopantomography (OPG), and lateral cephalometry (LC)] for assessing the mandibular height [ramus height (RH)] and condylar process (Con
This study evaluated the effect of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) on the tendency of rat molars to relapse following orthodontic tooth movement (OTM).
Maxillary rat molars were moved mesially for 10 days. Animals were randomly assigned to group I (non-irradiated) o
The present review summarizes two decades of published and unpublished studies on normal and pathological development of sella turcica and pituitary gland in humans. The pathological conditions are studied in known genotype deviations, syndromes, and other malformations. The studies include histologmai mult The European Journal of Orthodontics - current issue
Although it has been suggested that adult patients with facial asymmetry with posterior unilateral crossbite (PUXB) may have a more tilted mandibular hinge axis (MHA) than those without PUXB, whether craniofacial morphology is associated with the MHA remains unclear. The purpo
Background: Retinoic acid (RA) is a key regulator of embryonic development and linked to several birth defects including cleft lip and palate (CLP). The aim was to investigate the effects of RA on proliferation and gene expression of human palatal keratinocytes (KCs) in vitro. Methods: KCs from cmai mult The European Journal of Orthodontics - current issue
During orthodontic arch expansion, the teeth are displaced against the perioral soft tissues. This can affect the equilibrium of forces that are thought to act on teeth, with consequent implications for long-term stability. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of increment
To evaluate the location and morphologic characteristics of supernumerary teeth and to assess the frequency and extent of root resorption of adjacent teeth using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT).
CBCT scans of 82 patients with supernumerary teeth in the maxill
Swallowing pattern is important in the aetiology of unilateral posterior crossbite (ULCB). The aim of this study was to assess the swallowing pattern and tongue function during swallowing in children with ULCB in deciduous dentition using B-mode and M-mode ultrasonography.
Orthodontic management of maxillary canine impaction (MCI), including forced eruption, may result in significant root resorption; however, the association between MCI and orthodontically induced root resorption (OIRR) is not yet sufficiently established. The purpose of this re
To investigate the different effects of changes in the occlusal plane, incisors inclination, and maxillary intercanine width on the curvature of the smiling line.
