In Vitro Comparative Study Between Full-Arch Conventional Implant Impressions And Full-Arch Digital Implant Impressions With Snap-On Scan Bodies, Thomas H. Yoo 2022 University of Pennsylvania

In Vitro Comparative Study Between Full-Arch Conventional Implant Impressions And Full-Arch Digital Implant Impressions With Snap-On Scan Bodies, Thomas H. Yoo

Dental Theses

Statement of Problem: Digital impression techniques are widely used in everyday cases. There is sufficient evidence to support this technique in partially edentulous patients but the evidence supporting the use of intraoral scanners (IOS) in restorative digital workflows for edentulous patients is still limited.

Purpose: The aim of the present in vitro study was to measure and compare the accuracy of full- arch conventional implant impressions with open and closed-trays, full-arch digital implant impressions with intraoral scanners (IOS), and three-dimensional (3D) printed casts from the full-arch digital implant impressions.

Material and methods: Six implants were placed into a mandibular model ...

In complete dental transposition, aligning the transposed teeth to its normal anatomic position is always a complicated and difficult challenge, which needs multiple clinical considerations. This case report illustrates an orthodontic treatment of a 20-year-old female patient who had a concave profile, skeletal and dental Class III malocclusion with anterior crossbite and complete transposed maxillary left lateral incisor and impacted canine. The correction of transposition was performed by moving the canine by maintaining its high position in the vestibular fold and use lever arm and temporary anchorage device (TAD) to facilitate traction of the maxillary canine. Vestibular incision subperiosteal tunnel ...

Taiwanese Journal of Orthodontics

A 27-year-old male patient was diagnosed as severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), having problems of skeletal Class II jaw related with mandibular retrognathism, orthodivergent facial pattern, dental Class II malocclusion, and occlusal plane canting. By intervention of miniscrew assisted rapid palatal expansion (MARPE) and maxillomandibular advancement (MMA), the clinical result presented significant improvement in functional and esthetic aspects after 18 months of treatment.

Taiwanese Journal of Orthodontics

The decision of whether to have an extraction or non-extraction treatment plan is a controversial issue for an orthodontist. Many orthodontic techniques can help to resolve the crowding dentition by using the non-extraction treatment plan. This case report describes the correction of Class III molar malocclusion with the application of two mini-screws. The line of action of the force from the temporary anchorage devices pass through the center of resistance in the mandible, therefore the movement of the lower arch can be controlled without lingual tipping or intrusion of the mandibular incisors. At the end of the treatment, Class I ...

Important Orthodontic Considerations In Preparation Of Orthognathic Surgical Cases, Ib Leth Nielsen 2022 University of California, San Francisco

Important Orthodontic Considerations In Preparation Of Orthognathic Surgical Cases, Ib Leth Nielsen

Taiwanese Journal of Orthodontics

Nowadays some adult patients seeking for orthodontic treatment may present severe malocclusion associated with pronounced skeletal discrepancies. Accordingly, thorough consideration and planning would be beneficial for the patient by the combined efforts of orthodontic and orthognathic approaches. This review reiterated the genetic impact on the growth velocity of the jaw with age in Class III malocclusion, and outlined the treatment protocol for the steps including the initial evaluation, the diagnosis, and the alignment of the teeth and dental arches before and after surgical correction. Specifically, emphasis is addressed on how to obtain records of jaw relationship in centric relation (CR ...

Canine Retraction Rate And Angulation With 0.017”X0.025” Versus 0.016”X0.022” Stainless Steel Arch Wire With A Power Arm, Amr R. El-Beialy, Fouad A. El Sharaby, Hend S. Elsayed

Future Dental Journal

Background: The dimensions of the arch wire affect its stiffness and the play between the wire and bracket. Canine retraction over stiffer arch wires limits the degree of canine tipping. However, the greater the wire dimensions, the greater the resistance to sliding. Frictional resistance is known to delay tooth movement. Aim: The aim of this controlled clinical trial was to compare canine retraction rate and angulation with 0.017”X0.025” versus 0.016”X0.022” stainless steel arch wire with a power arm. Materials and Methods: Twenty-four Class II malocclusion patients (age 13.8± 2.6 years) participated in ...
