Mileva Marić (pronounced MAR-itch), a mathematician and physicist, was Albert Einstein’s first wife. The two met in 1896 as classmates at the Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich, Switzerland, where t...
Drs. Bashir, Azami, Uribe, and Safavi describe the management of missing teeth in growing patients. A careful selection of various modalities, including autotransplantation, tooth substitutions, and orthodontic space closure with skeletal anchorage, can achieve the best possible function, occlusion, and stability.
This edition of the Digital Ortho Lab presents a novel approach that combines the virtual design of a rapid maxillary expander with a hybrid manufacturing process, using a conventional Hyrax screw along with in-office-printed toothborne attachments made from a durable composite resin.
As illustrated by Drs. Kim and Graf, a new photocurable clear resin enables direct 3D printing of customized clear aligners. The authors discuss the design of vertical, sagittal, and transverse tooth movements; the use of divots instead of attachments; and the importance of proper aligner fit.
In this case, a periodontally comprised lower central incisor is orthodontically extruded before its extraction, preserving alveolar bone for a lingually blocked-out incisor to replace it. Prior endodontic treatment allows progressive incisal grinding of the extruded incisor to avoid occlusal trauma.

The original C-implant was designed to enable partial osseointegration for stability against rotational moments and heavy forces. This second generation overcomes some drawbacks of the first version while taking advantage of the best characteristics of conventional miniscrews. A typical case is presented.
Early extrusion of a palatally impacted upper canine is enabled by a skeletally anchored cantilever arm. Two bracket-head miniscrews are inserted with their slots aligned for proper torque expression. The canine can be erupted within six months, independent of the adjacent teeth.

Linear morphea, also called scleroderma en coup de sabre, is rarely reported in the orthodontic literature. This case is noteworthy because the adult patient’s facial asymmetry was corrected with nonextraction orthodontic treatment and no surgical intervention.
