Comparison of tooth development stage of the maxillary anterior teeth before and after secondary alveolar bone graft: Unilateral cleft lip and alveolus vs unilateral cleft lip and palate.

Comparison of tooth development stage of the maxillary anterior teeth before and after secondary alveolar bone graft: Unilateral cleft lip and alveolus vs unilateral cleft lip and palate. Angle Orthod. 2014 Apr 15; Authors: Park HM, Han DH, Baek SH Abstract Objective: To compare the effect of secondary alveolar bone graft (SABG) on the tooth development stage of the maxillary central incisor (MXCI) and maxillary canine (MXC) in terms of the severity of unilateral cleft. Materials and Methods: The subjects consisted of 50 boys with unilateral cleft lip and alveolus (UCLA) or unilateral cleft lip, alveolus, and palate (UCLP). The age- and sex-matched subjects were divided into group 1 (UCLA, nā€Š=ā€Š25; 9.3 ± 0.8 years old) and group 2 (UCLP, nā€Š=ā€Š25; 9.4 ± 0.6 years old). In panoramic radiographs taken 1 month before (T0) and 1 year after SABG (T1), tooth development stage was evaluated according to the Nolla developmental (ND) stage. A panoramic radiograph taken 3 years after SABG was used as a reference for the final root length of individual tooth. Results: In groups 1 and 2, the ND stage of the MXCI did not exhibit differences between the cleft and non-cleft sides at T0 and T1, respectively. However, although the ND stage of the MXC of group 2 was delayed on the cleft side compared with the non-cleft side at T0 (P

ConclusionAutologous bone and rh-BMP2 graft showed a similar effectiveness in maxillary alveolar reconstruction in patients with unilateral cleft lip and palate assessing bone graft volume and height although rh-BMP2 graft showed a relative shorter length of hospital stay (high uncertainty level).

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect that alveolar bone grafting (ABG) around 6 years of age has on facial growth by assessing craniofacial growth outcomes. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. SETTING: North American cleft centers. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 33 children with complete unilateral cleft lip and palate who were consecutively treated with secondary ABG around 6 years of age were compared to 148 participants from 4 centers with late secondary ABG. METHODS: Preorthodontic standardized lateral cephalometric radiographs were analyzed and traced according to the Americleft Study p...

This study analyzed the maintenance of lateral incisors in the dental rehabilitation of individuals with cleft lip and palate. Material and Methods The study was conducted on a tertiary craniofacial center and comprised retrospective analysis of panoramic and periapical radiographs of Caucasoid individuals with non-syndromic complete unilateral cleft lip and palate, analyzing all radiographs available on the records of each individual, from the first to the last up to 12 years of age. Overall, 2,826 records were reviewed to achieve a sample of 1,000 individuals. Among these, 487 individuals presented the permanent lateral ...

Conclusions Facemask therapy performed after an alveolar bone graft produced more anterior maxillary migration (90%) and less pronounced mandibular clockwise rotation (10%) than those in the ungrafted group (50%, 50%, respectively).

The authors performed a cantilever iliac bone graft for the secondary correction of severe cleft lip–nose deformities after the completion of growth. For the purpose of clarifying effects of the cantilever iliac bone grafts and the adverse events with regard to their time course changes after this procedure, the authors retrospectively surveyed long-term morphologic changes in 65 cleft lip, alveolus, and palate patients in whom cleft lip–nose deformities were treated with a cantilever iliac bone graft (age at surgery: 14–45 years old). All postsurgical documents of facial photographs and radiologic images...

Background: Secondary alveolar bone grafting is the gold standard for the treatment of alveolar clefts in cleft lip and palate patients. The authors present a modified method using a Scarpa fascia graft that is placed deep into the mucoperiosteal pocket for watertight sealing of the bone graft chamber and limiting the graft position to the alveolar region for bony stability and tooth support. The outcome was assessed for clinical success in terms of bone graft stability and infection rate. Methods: Seventy-four unilateral complete cleft lip and palate patients were enrolled in this retrospective study consisting of equal-...

CONCLUSIONS: Cleft-adjacent U1 exhibited more severe EARR than did the U1 on the noncleft side, which might be associated with orthodontic treatment-induced changes in horizontal inclination and root apex movement. On the cleft side, severity of EARR may be correlated with the success of ABG. PMID: 28906140 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
