Topic: Oral Piercings in Orthodontic Patients
Posted: Tuesday, September 14, 2010 9:21:04 PM
from JCO Associate Editor Jack Sheridan:

I have had three patients with tongue piercings and have not observed any pathology or unwanted tooth movement due to these devices. But, complications are certainly possible and if the stud is impaled through the tongue for a considerable length of time. . . probable. On the other hand, the tongue has a robust capacity for healing and adapting to whatever is around it. Think about lingual appliances.

The article Midline Diastema Caused by Tongue Piercing, published in our July issue by Drs. Sawsan Tabbaa, Ivanka Guigova, and C. Brian Preston, has been mentioned in such wide-ranging media as the AAO eBulletin, USA Today, The Los Angeles Times, www.biosciencetechnology.com, The Wall Street Journal Health Blog, and, we’ve just heard, . . . The Onion!

In 2009, JCO’s online Instant Survey polled website readers about the most common problem they had seen in patients with oral piercings. Our list of possible replies didn’t even include creation of a major diastema. The most common problems noted among 500+ respondents were gingival recession, enamel damage, chronic infection, and interference with tooth movement.

What are your findings in patients with oral piercings? What short-term and long-term effects have you seen?

Hi, Dr. Madsen:
We hadn't received anything since December 2009, either, although on April 10 an automated message was sent by their server. Looks as if they're updating systems, perhaps. Charlie Ruff might know more, since he was a regular contributor; his e-mail is orthodmd@GMAIL.COM.

(Posted on behalf of)JCO Contributing Editor Jeff Berger:
I have not seen this or any other adverse reaction after cementing several hundred MARA appliances. Perhaps, if you have not done so already, you should contact Jim Eckart. The only other people that I can think of are Dr. Gene Simon in Ohio and Dr. Toll. Other than that you might want to speak with Max Hall from OAO Labs - I have found him to be very helpful in the past and he has a wealth of knowledge with the MARA appliance. He might also be a good source for their main MARA customers worldwide.

Please keep me in the loop as I would be very interested to learn from this experience. Do you know if the patient has had any prior medical problems or was a high anxiety patient?

Regarding off-site data storage, in JCO's upcoming August issue Dr. Redmond writes about his successful experience with Oak Tree Storage (www.oaktreestorage.com). Similar services are available from Offsite Backup Solutions (www.offsitebackupsolutions.com), Rhino USA (www.rhinoback.com), and Offsite Backups (www.offsitebackups.com).

Topic: Who places miniscrews?
Posted: Friday, June 6, 2008 8:35:08 PM
JCO recently asked several editors, authors, and colleagues whether they are using miniscrews in their practices for skeletal anchorage and, if so, who is placing them. Respondents had compelling reasons both for orthodontists to place their own miniscrews and for having them placed by oral surgeons or periodontists.

We would like to hear other opinions on this topic. Do you use miniscrews for skeletal anchorage? Do you place them yourself? If not, who places them and how do you prescribe placement location?
