Permanent maxillary central incisor and first molar rotations in the mixed dentition in repaired complete unilateral cleft lip and palate and their relationship with absence of teeth in their vicinity.

CONCLUSIONS: Presence and absence of teeth were associated with the severity of incisor and molar rotations in UCLP. Crowding of anterior teeth in the greater segment was associated with a greater magnitude of rotation of the cleft side permanent central incisor. Absence of one or more buccal segment teeth was associated with greater magnitude of rotation of the molar. PMID: 29799271 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To test for systematic age changes in cleft children based on dental age. DESIGN: Retrospective case-control longitudinal study. SETTING: One orthodontic solo practice. PATIENTS: Nonsyndromic, complete cleft lip and palateCLP cases, either unilateral or bilateral (102 children; 370 radiographs), between 4 and 16 years of age. INTERVENTIONS: Children were treated with a team approach, but only orthodontic radiographs were studied. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: The principal outcome measure was dental age of the cleft cases compared to a sex-specific sample of phenotypically norm...

Muenke syndrome is a craniosynostosis syndrome associated with the p.Pro250Arg mutation in FGFR3. An increasing number of individuals with this mutation are reported to not have craniosynostosis. The purpose of this report is to increase awareness of the high phenotypic variability seen in Muenke syndrome. DNA testing for the p.Pro250Arg mutation is routinely performed in Denmark, in children presenting with isolated coronal synostosis. Verified diagnosis entails detailed family history, drawing of family pedigree, DNA testing of the parents, genetic counseling, skull radiographs, clinical photographs, and follow-up. Sixte...

CONCLUSION: We conclude that 8-year-old children born with UCLP display multiple dental anomalies. The Scandcleft sample allowed rarely studied conditions such as infraocclusion of primary molars and transposition to be studied in children born with UCLP. TRIAL REGISTRATION: ISRCTN29932826.

ConclusionsOSCS is a rare disorder. Diagnosis can often be challenging because other diseases, such as osteopetrosis, pyknodysostosis, Paget disease of bone, and other sclerosing bone dysplasias, make this difficult to diagnose. Radiologists should be aware of the specific radiographic appearance of this condition to aid in the proper diagnosis and management of these patients.

(OSCS) is a rare x-linked genetic disorder that has variable clinical findings but specific radiographic features, which include marked sclerosis of the long bones and axial skeleton, including the skull. Linear striations, commonly seen in the long bones, are the basis for the name osteopathia striata. Maxillofacial manifestations can include a cleft palate, high palatal vault, midface hyperplasia, hypoplastic maxillary sinuses, enlarged alveolar bone processes, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) abnormalities, and dense mandibular bone with variable striations.

In this study the authors aimed to evaluate craniofacial morphology and facial soft tissue thickness of the patients with cleft lip and palate.(CLP), and to compare the results with a sex and age-matched noncleft healthy control group. Methods: Craniofacial and soft tissue thickness measurements of 20 patients with unilateral cleft lip palate (UCLP) and 20 patients with bilateral cleft lip palate (BCLP) were compared with 20 noncleft control subjects. Angles between Sella-Nasion-A point, Sella-Nasion-B point, Nasion-A and Nasion-B line, Sella-Nasion line and Gonion-Gnation line, and linear (glabella, rhinion, subnasale,...

AbstractOral submucous fibrosis (OSF) is a chronic disease and a well-recognized potentially malignant condition of the oral cavity characterized by inflammation and a progressive fibrosis of the lamina propria and deeper connective tissues. To study the morphology of soft palate in different stages of OSF on digital lateral cephalogram. To compare the changes in morphology of soft palate in OSF patients with control. The study was conducted from 2017 to 2018 on 217 patients with their age ranging from 17 to 60  years. All patients detailed clinical examination and history was taken and cephalometric evaluation was do...
