Evaluating Pi Angle Efficacy Against Established Cephalometric Angular Parameters, Sumit Bohra 2024 Roseman University of Health Sciences

Evaluating Pi Angle Efficacy Against Established Cephalometric Angular Parameters, Sumit Bohra

Annual Research Symposium

Cephalometrics is a cornerstone of orthodontic diagnosis. Numerous angularmeasurements are used to assess the anteroposterior jaw relation include the ANB angle, Betaangle, Yen angle, and W angle. However, these have limitations, leading to the development of thePi angle. Our study aimed to evaluate the predictability of the Pi angle in a South Indian populationand compare it with other established antero-posterior dysplasia indicators such as the ANB angle,W angle, Yen angle, and Beta angle. This comparison is crucial for determining the most accuratemethod for assessing sagittal skeletal discrepancies.

Referral Patterns Of Neonatal Healthcare Professionals For Cleft Lip And Palate Patients, Alyssa Morrow 2024 Roseman University of Health Sciences

Referral Patterns Of Neonatal Healthcare Professionals For Cleft Lip And Palate Patients, Alyssa Morrow

Annual Research Symposium

Cleft Lip and Palate patients are some of the most vulnerable and complex orthodontic patients. They face a myriad of health challenges including psychological, nutritional, auditory, speech, airway, skeletal, and dental. Ideal comprehensive treatment for CLP patients is provided via multidisciplinary teams of healthcare providers. However, there is currently limited access to proper multidisciplinary care for CLP patients in the US, partly due to lack of education regarding available resources. For the most effective treatment and optimal outcomes, it is essential that coordinated care starts at birth and that parental education begins as soon as CLP is detected in utero. …
