Drs. Greco, Pacifico, and Rombolà demonstrate a technique for recovering impacted incisors in early orthodontic treatment. Rapid maxillary expansion is followed by placement of a palatal arch for de-impaction and a fixed sectional appliance for refinement of the incisor positions.
In a retrospective study of 108 patients, two Invisalign materials are compared in terms of their efficacy and predictability in achieving maxillary expansion. Intercanine, interpremolar, and intermolar widths are measured at both the gingival and cusp levels.
JCO’s new Associate Editor for Pearls presents an option for elastic attachment in the absence of a mandibular first molar on one side, using a nickel titanium open-coil spring and a molar tube placed along the archwire.
