Reliability of anatomic structures as landmarks in three-dimensional cephalometric analysis using CBCT.
re MO Abstract Abstract Objective: To identify anatomic structures in three dimensions and examine their reliability to be used as landmarks in a three-dimensional coordinate cephalometric analysis, using cone-beam computerized tomography (CBCT). Materials and Methods: Thirty CBCT images were randomly selected for landmark location. Forty-two anatomic landmarks, which are not included in the traditional cephalometric landmarks, were chosen based on radiographic characteristics that make them pragmatic to mark in the CBCT image slices. The principal investigator marked the full set of landmarks on the software by n...

Wear resistance of four types of vacuum-formed retainer materials: A laboratory study.
Abstract Abstract Objective: To investigate the resistance to wear of four different vacuum-formed retainer (VFR) materials: Essix C+, Essix ACE, Duran, and Tru-Tain. Essix C+ is a polypropylene polymer; the other materials are polyethylene co-polymers. Materials and Methods: The study was undertaken at the Leeds Dental Institute, Leeds, UK, with 26 samples in each group. The specimens were vacuum-formed according to the manufacturers' guidelines, and a custom-made wear-simulation machine was used to conduct the test. Each specimen was subjected to 1000 cycles of the wear simulation, with steatite balls as the ant...

Management of occlusal canting with miniscrews.
A, Solano-Reina E Abstract Abstract A 14-year-old boy with a skeletal Class II malocclusion and open bite whose chief complaint was a posterior crossbite showed a canted occlusal plane with asymmetric gummy smile and mandibular deviation at clinical examination. The treatment with miniscrews focused on the bilateral intrusion of the maxillary posterior teeth and, after resolving the open bite, a new biomechanical technique involving joined miniscrews was applied for an en masse intrusion of the left side. This treatment strategy achieved optimal occlusion with improvements to the sagittal, vertical, and transverse...

Orthodontic bonding to porcelain A systematic review.
Conclusions: The best protocol described in this review is the etching of 9.6% hydrofluoric acid for 1 minute, rinsed for 30 seconds, and then air-dried. The etching of hydrofluoric acid should be followed by an application of silane. Considering the harmful effects of etching with hydrofluoric acid, another appropriate suggestion is mechanical roughening with sandblasting followed by an application of silane.

Effects of different orthodontic adhesives and resin removal techniques on enamel color alteration.
Conclusions: Orthodontic treatment alters the original color of enamel, and both the adhesive system and the resin-removal methods are responsible for this change. When brackets are bonded with the etch-and-rinse system or the SEP, cleaning the adhesive residuals with Stainbuster burs is recommended for minimal change. RMGIC can be safely cleaned with tungsten carbide burs. PMID: 24313735 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: The Angle Orthodontist)

Conclusions: Under the test conditions, BPA was observed to leach from two orthodontic materials.
