Rapid Palatal Expansion with the Keles Keyless Expander

AHMET KELES DDS, DMSc, CHEN-HSING LIN DDS, EREN KELES, M. ALI DARENDELILER BDS, PhD

A second-generation palatal expander avoids problems associated with the activation key by using an integrated arm operated with a finger. It can be fabricated with two support arms for a patient in the mixed dentition or with four support arms for enhanced stability in the permanent dentition.

CASE REPORT

Nonsurgical Correction of Class III Malocclusion and Anterior Open Bite with Mini-Implant Anchorage

AJIT KALIA BDS, MDS

The combination of mandibular prognathism with anterior open bite in an adult patient has traditionally required surgical-orthodontic correction. As this case shows, skeletal anchorage now enables orthodontic molar intrusion to close the open bite by counterclockwise mandibular rotation.

PEARLS

Closure of Mandibular Spaces During Retention

TRACI SAITO DMD, JAE HYUN PARK DMD, MSD, MS, PhD, PAUL SERRANO DDS

Extraction spaces often reopen within a year following orthodontic treatment. This Pearl presents a simple modification to a wraparound retainer, using a cinched nickel titanium wire in the labial bow, that can close a relapsed space in the lower arch during retention.
