A pilot clinical study of Class III surgical patients facilitated by improved accelerated osteogenic orthodontic treatments.
This study was also designed to determine whether or not an IAOO procedure affects the tooth-moving pattern during extraction space closure. Materials and Methods: The samples in this study consisted of 24 Class III surgical patients. Twelve skeletal Class III surgery patients served as an experimental group (group 1) and the others as a control group (group 2). Before treatment, the maxillary first premolars were removed. For group 1, after the maxillary dental arch was aligned and leveled (T2), IAOO procedures were performed in the maxillary alveolar bone. Except for this IAOO procedure in group 1, all 24 patients experi...

A comparative study between currently used methods and Small Volume-Cone Beam Tomography for surgical placement of mini implants.
Abstract Objective: To compare the outcome of mini implant placement by four different methods: blind placement, a single periapical radiograph (PA), a single panoramic radiograph, and a small-volume cone-beam computed tomography (SV-CBCT). Our hypothesis was that SV-CBCT, with its high resolution, low radiation dose, and three-dimensional depiction of area of interest would yield superior diagnostic information in assessing the potential anchorage site compared to currently used methods that often result in undesired root perforations. Materials and Methods: Potential mini implant sites of 20 dentate or partially...

Asymmetric transverse control of maxillary dentition with two midpalatal orthodontic miniscrews.
Abstract Abstract There have been several orthodontic modalities for maxillary transverse control with most addressing symmetric control. The asymmetric transverse control of maxillary dentition is challenging to orthodontists due to the lack of certain modalities and possible dental side effects. Skeletal anchorages provide biomechanics without orthodontic side effects, but reports of their utilization for transverse control of maxillary dentition are scarce. The purpose of this article is to introduce a novel method utilizing two midpalatal orthodontic miniscrews and a connecting wire system for the asymmetric t...

Decreased alveolar bone turnover is related to the occurrence of root resorption during experimental tooth movement in dogs.
Conclusions: A sustained mechanical load, due to the prolonged stress and strain of continuous mechanics, induces elevated bone metabolic activity, such as the bone turnover (remodeling) and change in bone volume (modeling). Therefore, our data support the hypothesis that increased RR is related to decreased bone formation (turnover) in high stress areas exposed to prolonged orthodontic tooth movement.
