Dental and craniofacial features associated with GNAS loss of function mutations.
CONCLUSIONS: Patients with iPPSD2 and maternal GNAS mutations had specific craniofacial alterations and dental abnormalities. These specific defects should be assessed in order to provide appropriate dental and orthodontic care to these patients.

Vacuum-formed retainer versus bonded retainer for dental stabilization in the mandible-a randomized controlled trial. Part I: retentive capacity 6 and 18 months after orthodontic treatment.
This study included 104 adolescent patients, computer-generated randomized with sequentially numbered, opaque, and sealed envelopes into two groups and stratified by gender (52 females and 52 males). The patients were treated with fixed appliances with and without tooth extractions in both jaws and were ready for debond. In the intervention arm, patients received a VFR (n = 52); in the active comparator arm, patients received a CTC (n = 52). Dental casts were obtained at debond (T1), after 6 months (T2), and after 18 months (T3). The casts were digitized. The retentive capacity was evaluated on digital three-dimensional mo...

Oral health-related quality of life in orthodontics: a cross-sectional multicentre study on patients in orthodontic treatment.
CONCLUSIONS: Our study showed that the majority of the 6- to 11-year olds and 12- to 17-year olds reported a good OHRQoL. Nevertheless, adolescents and adults who reported aesthetic/pain and function/pain problems, respectively, as reasons for orthodontic treatment showed a significant occurrence for reduced OHRQoL. Fixed appliances, in comparison with removable appliances, also resulted in a significant reduction in OHRQoL for both groups.

Bimaxillary surgery to correct high-angle class II malocclusion: does a simultaneous genioplasty affect long-term stability?
CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONS: Overjet was normalized and remained stable long term; there was an open bite in half of the patients. Combined orthodontic and bimaxillary surgical treatment of high-angle Class II patients showed skeletal relapse (greater than or equal to 2 mm) of the mandible in 40 per cent of patients. Mandibular advancement greater than 10 mm increased the risk for relapse. There was no increased risk for dental or skeletal instability associated with a genioplasty in combination with maxillary and mandibular surgery in the treatment of high-angle skeletal Class II malocclusion.

Effect of hyperglycaemic conditions on the response of human periodontal ligament fibroblasts to mechanical stretching.
CONCLUSION: Our findings indicate that under high glucose conditions, human PDLFs fail to adequately respond to mechanical deformation, while their strain-elicited osteoblast differentiation ability is deteriorated.

Conventional versus laser gingivectomy in the management of gingival enlargement during orthodontic treatment: a randomized controlled trial.
Abstract OBJECTIVES: To compare the use of diode laser with conventional surgery evaluating the effectiveness of gingivectomy as an adjunct to non-surgical periodontal treatment in the management of gingival enlargement (GE) during orthodontic treatment. TRIAL DESIGN: Prospective three-arm parallel group randomized clinical trial with 1:1:1 allocation ratio. METHODS: Sixty subjects (33 males and 27 females), with a mean age of 14.4 ± 1.9 years, were selected according to inclusion criteria: overgrown gingivae on the labial side of the anterior teeth secondary to fixed appliance therapy, six maxill...

Time of maxillary molar distalization with non-compliance intraoral distalizing appliances: a meta-analysis.
CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONS: Correction of a half-to-full cusp Class II molar relationship with intraoral distalizers can be achieved in 8.34 months, and this distalization time may not be affected by the kind of anchorage used. REGISTRATION: The protocol for this systematic review was based on the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions 5.1.0 and was registered at PROSPERO database (http://www.crd.york.ac.uk/PROSPERO/display_record.php?ID=CRD42017068737). This systematic review is reported according to the PRISMA statement. PMID: 31107942 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: European J...

Social media and orthodontic treatment from the patient's perspective: a systematic review.
CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONS: This systematic review demonstrated that information about orthodontics, how the patient feels, and other psychosocial facets are spread through social media. It is intuitive that research relating to the effects and impact of orthodontic interventions should account not only for the physical impacts of treatment but also to encompass patient-centered outcomes. REGISTRATION: The protocol of this study was not registered in publicly assessable database. CONFLICTS OF INTEREST: None to declare.

Development of a clinical practice guideline for orthodontically induced external apical root resorption.
CONCLUSIONS/IMPLICATIONS: This clinical practice guideline allows clinicians to respond to EARR based on current knowledge, although the recommendations are weak due to low-quality evidence. It may reduce variation between practices and aid in providing patients appropriate information. PMID: 31087032 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: European Journal of Orthodontics)

Alveolar ridge alterations in the maxillary anterior region after tooth extraction through orthodontic forced eruption for implant site development: a clinical CBCT study.
CONCLUSIONS: OFE resulted in favourable increase in the heights of the palatal and proximal alveolar bone and significant reduction in the buccal plate height, which inhibited implant placement in 35% of the treated sockets.

Mechanical and clinical evaluation of the effect of microscrew on root proximity and cortical bone thickness.
This study investigated correlations among biomechanical, morphological, and clinical values in relationship to root contact and different placement locations. MATERIALS/METHODS: Thirty-three microscrews were placed between the molars (n = 18) or in the body of the mandible (n = 15) in three pigs. Insertion torque, Periotest, resonance frequency analysis (RFA), and static and dynamic stiffness were measured. Cone beam computed tomography was performed before and after the insertion of microscrews. Interproximal microscrews were divided into root contacted microscrews (n = 9) and non-root contact microscrews (n = 9). F...
