Interdisciplinary Treatment of a Severely Displaced Mandibular Canine: A Long-Term Follow-Up

Volume 46 : Number 11 : Page 687 : Nov 2012

Impacted canines are less prevalent in the mandible than in the maxilla,1,2 and impacted mandibular canines that have migrated to the opposite side of the midline (transmigration) are even more rare.3...



Surgical Luxation and Orthodontic Traction of an Ankylosed Upper First Molar

Volume 50 : Number 5 : Page 0 : May 2016

Dental ankylosis is a cellular change in the periodontal ligament that results in continuity or fusion between the alveolar bone and cementum, making it impossible for a tooth to erupt completely. It is identified clinically by the failure of a tooth to erupt through the oral epithelium, by incomplete eruption, or by a lack of vertical movement compared with the adjacent teeth and the alveolar bone. Although ankylosis is more common in the primary dentition, it may also affect the permanent teeth, typically the molars. Bone defects are often associated, especially when ankylosis occurs during active vertical growth of the maxilla.



An Effective Approach to Correcting Anterior Crossbite in a Class III Patient

Volume 54 : Number 11 : Page 705 : Nov 2020

When early treatment is impossible, permanent teeth can be moved to compensate for a skeletal Class III discrepancy and anterior crossbite. The authors demonstrate the use of a 2 × 4 appliance and acrylic biteplane to correct a late-diagnosed skeletal Class III malocclusion.



Treatment of Mandibular Alveolar Prognathism by a Lower Anterior Subapical Osteotomy

Volume 32 : Number 12 : Page 747 : Dec 1998

Mandibular alveolar prognathism is often treated by orthodontic treatment without accompanying surgery, in cases where the malocclusion and protrusive profile are not severe enough to warrant sagittal...



Orthodontic Management of Asymmetry after Surgical Removal of a Keratocystic Odontogenic Tumor of the Mandible

Volume 54 : Number 8 : Page 473 : Aug 2020

This adult patient presented with a recurring cyst that had resulted in a severe asymmetrical occlusal deformity. Treatment involving rapid maxillary expansion, followed by asymmetrical orthodontic mechanics with intermaxillary elastics, achieves a functional occlusion and esthetic result.



Targeted Mechanics for Limited Posterior Treatment with Mini-Implant Anchorage

Volume 49 : Number 12 : Page 777 : Dec 2015

The introduction of temporary anchorage devices (TADs) has facilitated orthodontic management of complex dentofacial problems. TADs have also elicited the creativity of orthodontists in designing new appliances and approaches for treating different malocclusions. One such approach involves delivering orthodontic forces directly from mini-implants in the buccal segments without bonding the posterior teeth. Introduced by Chung and colleagues, this "biocreative therapy" obtains skeletal anchorage from sandblasted and acid-etched miniscrews, called C-implants, which are placed interdentally between the first molars and second premolars. The archwire is inserted in the anterior brackets and secured posteriorly in the slots of the C-implants to retract the anterior teeth during space closure. Because the implants are partially osseointegrated, they can resist these torsional forces without failing. Chung and colleagues have indicated that biocreative therapy was especially appropriate for cases of bimaxillary dentoalveolar protrusion and Class II cases with good buccal occlusion. Advantages of their method include three-dimensional control of the active units, a minimal need for patient compliance, and significantly reduced risks of root resorption or white-spot lesions in the posterior segments.


Surgical Orthodontics: A Case Report

Volume 6 : Number 4 : Page 196 : Apr 1972

The Case The patient was a 32-year-old female, the mother of four boys the oldest of whom was being treated in my office with routine light wire mechanics. Examination of her malocclusion revealed a s...



Surgical Intervention to Prevent Exfoliation of Central Incisors from Elastic Wear

Volume 40 : Number 1 : Page 51 : Jan 2006

Elastics have long been used for the correction of orthodontic problems such as diastemas,1-5 crossbites,1 and malposed teeth,2,3,6 as well as for the intentional non-surgical removal of teeth in case...



Treatment of a Complex Malocclusion in a Growing Skeletal Class II Patient

Volume 48 : Number 3 : Page 181 : Mar 2014

In a growing patient with excessive lower facial height, a skeletal Class II malocclusion is especially difficult to treat without surgical repositioning of the maxilla and possibly the mandible. 1-3 ...



Skeletal Open-Bite Correction with Mini-Implant Anchorage and Minimally Invasive Surgery

Volume 52 : Number 9 : Page 485 : Sep 2018

In this adult patient with skeletal open bite and excessive lower facial height, orthognathic surgery is avoided by a combination of miniscrew-anchored maxillary posterior intrusion and minor esthetic procedures, including a reduction genioplasty and submental liposuction.



Combined Fixed-Functional Class II Treatment

Volume 28 : Number 1 : Page 0 : Jan 1994

Class II, division 1 and 2 cases often involve both dental and skeletal problems. Functional appliances have been shown to produce beneficial effects in growing patients with Class II malocclusions, b...



Spontaneous Correction of a Mesially Inclined Canine

Volume 29 : Number 1 : Page 0 : Jan 1995

A female patient, age 9 years and 6 months, presented for treatment. Clinical examination showed a normal molar and canine occlusion and no abnormalities of the incisors. The initial panoramic x-ray (...

Focal Sclerosing Osteomyelitis and Orthodontic Treatment Planning

Volume 43 : Number 4 : Page 269 : Apr 2009

Orthodontic tooth movement is based on the response of the supporting periodontium and alveolar bone. Any abnormality in these underlying structures can affect tooth movement and therefore should be c...
