The length and eruption rates of incisor teeth in rats after one or more of them had been unimpeded. (1/244)The eruption rate and length of all four incisor teeth in rats were measured under ether anaesthesia by recording the position of marks on their labial surfaces at 2-day intervals, using calibrated graticules in microscope eyepieces. The rats were divided into four groups and either a lower, an upper, both a lower and an upper, or no incisors were unimpeded. This paper describes the changes when the unimpeded incisors returned to the occlusion. Neither the unimpeded nor the impeded incisors simply returned to control values immediately the period of unimpeded eruption ended, but showed transient changes in their lengths and eruption rates. The results confirm that eruption rates are determined by the sum of the lengths of the lower and upper incisors, rather than by their own lengths, with longer teeth erupting more slowly. Specifically, restoring the bevel to the incisors did not slow their eruption below normal impeded rates. The slowing of the eruption of the longer of two adjacent incisors was related to the length differences of the incisors in the same jaw, not to the sum of the differences in both jaws. Contact with the contralateral incisor in the opposite jaw slowed the eruption of an incisor more than contact with the ipsilateral incisor. (+info)
Motivation for and satisfaction with orthodontic-surgical treatment: a retrospective study of 28 patients. (2/244)Motivation for starting treatment and satisfaction with treatment results were evaluated on the basis of replies to a 14-item questionnaire and clinical examination of 28 orthognathic patients from 6 months to 2 years after treatment. The most common reasons for seeking professional help were problems in biting and chewing (68 per cent). Another major reason was dissatisfaction with facial appearance (36 per cent). Many patients also complained of temporomandibular joint symptoms (32 per cent) and headache (32 per cent). Women (8/19) were more often dissatisfied with their facial appearance than men (2/9), but the difference was not statistically significant. In agreement with earlier studies, the results of orthognathic treatment fulfilled the expectations of almost every patient. Nearly 100 per cent of the patients (27/28) were satisfied with treatment results, although 40 per cent experienced some degree of numbness in the lips and/or jaw 1 year post-operatively. The most satisfied patients were those who stated temporomandibular disorders as the main reason for seeking treatment and whose PAR-index had improved greatly. The majority of the patients experienced the orthodontic treatment as painful and as the most unpleasant part of the whole treatment, but all the patients were satisfied with the pre-treatment information they were given on orthodontics. Orthodontic-surgical therapy should be of a high professional standard technically, but the psychological aspects are equally important in the treatment protocol. The professionals should make efforts to understand the patient's motivations for and expectations of treatment. Patients should be well prepared for surgery and supported for a long time after to help them to adjust to post-surgical changes. (+info)
The functional shift of the mandible in unilateral posterior crossbite and the adaptation of the temporomandibular joints: a pilot study. (3/244)Changes in the functional shift of the mandibular midline and the condyles were studied during treatment of unilateral posterior crossbite in six children, aged 7-11 years. An expansion plate with covered occlusal surfaces was used as a reflex-releasing stabilizing splint during an initial diagnostic phase (I) in order to determine the structural (i.e. non-guided) position of the mandible. The same plate was used for expansion and retention (phase II), followed by a post-retention phase (III) without the appliance. Before and after each phase, the functional shift was determined kinesiographically and on transcranial radiographs by concurrent recordings with and without the splint. Transverse mandibular position was also recorded on cephalometric radiographs. Prior to phase I, the mandibular midline deviated more than 2 mm and, in occlusion (ICP), the condyles showed normally centred positions in the sagittal plane. With the splint, the condyle on the crossbite side was displaced 2.4 mm (P < 0.05) forwards compared with the ICP, while the position of the condyle on the non-crossbite side was unaltered. After phase III, the deviation of the midline had been eliminated. Sagittal condylar positions in the ICP still did not deviate from the normal, and the splint position was now obtained by symmetrical forward movement of both condyles (1.3 and 1.4 mm). These findings suggest that the TMJs adapted to displacements of the mandible by condylar growth or surface modelling of the fossa. The rest position remained directly caudal to the ICP during treatment. Thus, the splint position, rather than the rest position should be used to determine the therapeutic position of the mandible.

An appraisal of the Peer Assessment Rating (PAR) Index and a suggested new weighting system. (4/244)The PAR Index was developed to measure treatment outcome in orthodontics. Validity was improved by weighting the scores of some components to reflect their relative importance. However, the index still has limitations, principally due to the high weight assigned to overjet. Difficulties also arise from the application of one weighting system to all malocclusions, since occlusal features vary in importance in different classes of malocclusion. The present study examined PAR Index validity using orthodontic consultant assessments as the 'Gold standard' and clinical ranking of occlusal features and statistical modelling to derive a new weighting system, separate for each malocclusion class. Discriminant and regression analyses were used to derive new criteria for measuring treatment outcome. As a result a new and more sensitive method of assessment is suggested which utilizes a combination of point and percentage reductions in PAR scores. This was found to have better correlations with the 'Gold standard' than the PAR nomogram. (+info)
The heritability of malocclusion: part 2. The influence of genetics in malocclusion. (5/244)The relative influence of genetics and environmental factors in the aetiology of malocclusion has been a matter for discussion, debate and controversy in the orthodontic literature. This paper reviews the literature and summarises the evidence for the influence of genetics in dental anomalies and malocclusion. Among the conclusions are that, while phenotype is inevitably the result of both genetic and environmental factors, there is irrefutable evidence for a significant genetic influence in many dental and occlusal variables. The influence of genetics however varies according to the trait under consideration and in general remains poorly understood. More precise research tools and methods are required to improve knowledge and understanding, which in turn is a prerequisite to the appreciation of the potential for genetic and/or environmental manipulation in orthodontic therapy.

Longitudinal post-eruptive mandibular tooth movements of males and females. (6/244)Unbiased estimates of post-eruptive eruption and migration of the mandibular teeth for large representative samples are presently unavailable. The purpose of this study was to evaluate pure tooth movements of untreated children and adolescents longitudinally. Lateral cephalograms of 214 French-Canadians, followed bi-annually between 8 and 15 years of age, were traced, and the positions of the mandibular permanent central incisors and first molars were digitized. Temporal changes in tooth position were evaluated relative to naturally stable mandibular reference structures, using the mandibular reference line for orientation. The statistical analyses included t-tests to assess gender differences and Pearson product-moment correlations to evaluate associations. The results showed that the incisors proclined significantly more for males (6 degrees) than females (3 degrees). The incisor tips displayed early mesial movements that were countered by later distal movements. The incisor apex showed a consistent pattern of distal migration between 8 and 15 years. Mandibular arch length decreased over the 7-year observation period. Rates of mesial molar migration accelerated until 11 years of age and then decelerated. There was no significant change in the mandibular occlusal plane angle between 8 and 15 years of age. Incisor eruption showed the greatest rates during adolescence, attaining peaks at approximately 12 years for females and 14 years for males. The molars erupted approximately 5 mm between 8 and 15 years of age. The greatest gender differences occurred at the older ages, with males showing greater eruption potential than females. It was concluded that the mandibular teeth show significant migration and eruption during childhood and adolescence, with gender differences in the amount, direction, and timing of movement. (+info)
Residual need in orthodontically untreated 16-20-year-olds from areas with different treatment rates. (7/244)Knowledge concerning residual orthodontic need among individuals who have passed the age at which orthodontic treatment is normally provided, is important in the discussion of guidelines for the provision of care. The purpose of the present study was to examine and compare orthodontic need (objective and subjective) in cohorts of orthodontically untreated individuals from areas with various treatment rates. A total of 250 individuals, aged 16-20 years, comprised four samples representing cohorts from areas in Norway with low, medium, and high treatment rates. The occlusion was assessed according to a treatment need index (NOTI) from clinical and radiographic records, and dental cast measurements. Attitudes were assessed from questionnaires addressing satisfaction with dental arrangement, desire for treatment, and value placed upon well-aligned teeth. A significant decrease in occurrence of normative need (P < 0.001) and reported dissatisfaction (P < 0.05) was observed in samples representing increasing treatment rates. Dissatisfaction was completely eliminated among individuals from the high treatment rate area. Although a significant association between severity of malocclusion and desire for treatment existed within samples, this was not reflected in a corresponding trend for a decrease in desire across the samples. Well-aligned teeth seemed to be taken for granted among individuals from the area with a high treatment rate. From the present observations, a 'correct' level of treatment provision could not be identified. (+info)
Skeletal muscle function and fibre types: the relationship between occlusal function and the phenotype of jaw-closing muscles in human. (8/244)Mammalian skeletal muscle cells are composed of repeated sarcomeric units containing thick and thin filaments of myosin and actin, respectively. Excitation of the myosin ATPase enzyme is possible only with presence of Mg-ATP and Ca(2+). Skeletal muscle fibres may be classified into several types according to the isoform of myosin they contain. Nine isoforms of myosin heavy chain are known to exist in mammalian skeletal muscle including type I, IIA, IIB, IIX, IIM, alpha, neonatal, embryonic, and extra-ocular. Healthy adult human limb skeletal muscle contains type I, IIA, IIB, and IIX myosin heavy chains. The jaw-closing muscles of most carnivores and primates have tissue-specific expression of the type IIM or 'type II masticatory' myosin heavy chain. Adult human jaw-closing muscles, however, do not contain IIM myosin. Rather, they express type I, IIA, IIX (as in human limb muscle), and myosins typically expressed in developing or cardiac muscle. The morphology of human jaw-closing muscle fibres is also unusual in that the type II fibres are of smaller diameter that type I fibres, except in cases of increased function and hypertrophy. This paper describes the relationship of fibre types and motor unit function to changes in human occlusion and masticatory activity. Refereed Scientific Paper (+info)
Dental occlusion, traumatic refers to a type of dental injury that occurs when the teeth come into contact with each other in an abnormal or excessive manner, causing damage to the teeth, gums, or jawbone. This type of injury can be caused by a variety of factors, including accidents, sports injuries, or physical altercations. Symptoms of traumatic dental occlusion may include pain, swelling, difficulty chewing or speaking, and changes in the alignment of the teeth. Treatment for traumatic dental occlusion may involve restorative procedures such as fillings, crowns, or bridges, as well as orthodontic treatment to realign the teeth. In severe cases, surgery may be necessary to repair damage to the jawbone.
Dental care refers to the maintenance and treatment of the teeth and gums to promote oral health and prevent or treat dental problems. It includes regular check-ups, cleaning, and fluoride treatments to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Dental care also involves the diagnosis and treatment of oral health problems such as cavities, gum disease, toothaches, and oral infections. In some cases, dental care may also involve the placement of dental implants, bridges, crowns, or dentures to restore or replace missing teeth. Overall, dental care is an essential part of maintaining good overall health and well-being.
Dental caries, also known as tooth decay, is a common dental disease that affects the hard tissues of the teeth, including the enamel, dentin, and pulp. It is caused by the demineralization of tooth enamel due to the production of acid by bacteria in the mouth. The bacteria in the mouth feed on sugars and starches in the food we eat, producing acid as a byproduct. This acid can erode the enamel on the teeth, leading to the formation of cavities. If left untreated, dental caries can progress and cause damage to the underlying dentin and pulp, leading to pain, infection, and tooth loss. Dental caries is a preventable disease through good oral hygiene practices, such as brushing and flossing regularly, using fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash, and limiting sugary and acidic foods and drinks. Early detection and treatment of dental caries can help prevent more serious complications and maintain good oral health.
Dental care for chronically ill refers to the specialized dental care provided to individuals who have chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, and others. These individuals may have unique dental needs due to the impact of their chronic illness on their overall health and may require specialized dental care to manage their oral health and prevent complications. Dental care for chronically ill may involve regular dental check-ups, more frequent cleanings, and the use of specialized dental equipment and techniques to manage the individual's oral health. The dentist may also work closely with the individual's primary care physician to coordinate their overall care and manage any potential interactions between their medications and dental treatments. In addition to routine dental care, individuals with chronic illnesses may also require specialized dental procedures such as gum disease treatment, tooth extractions, and dental implants to manage their oral health and prevent complications. It is important for individuals with chronic illnesses to receive regular dental care to maintain their oral health and prevent potential complications that can impact their overall health and well-being.
Dental care for children refers to the preventive, restorative, and therapeutic procedures and services provided to children to maintain and promote their oral health. It includes regular check-ups, cleaning, fluoride treatments, sealants, fillings, extractions, and other procedures as needed to prevent and treat dental problems in children. The goal of dental care for children is to establish good oral hygiene habits early in life, prevent tooth decay and gum disease, and address any dental problems that may arise. It is important to start dental care for children as soon as their first tooth appears, usually around six months of age. Dental care for children may be provided by pediatric dentists, general dentists, or other dental professionals who have received specialized training in treating children's dental needs. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are recommended every six months to monitor a child's oral health and detect any potential problems early on.
Dental care for disabled refers to the specialized dental care provided to individuals with disabilities. These individuals may have physical, cognitive, or emotional disabilities that make it difficult for them to receive routine dental care or to communicate their dental needs effectively. Dental care for disabled may include a range of services, such as oral hygiene instruction, preventive care, restorative care, and endodontic treatment. These services may be provided in a variety of settings, including dental offices, hospitals, and nursing homes. The goal of dental care for disabled is to ensure that individuals with disabilities receive the necessary dental care to maintain good oral health and overall health.
Dental anxiety is a common condition characterized by a fear or phobia of dental procedures or the dentist. It can range from mild discomfort to severe panic attacks and avoidance of dental care altogether. People with dental anxiety may experience physical symptoms such as sweating, shaking, nausea, and difficulty breathing during dental appointments. This condition can have a significant impact on a person's oral health and overall well-being, as it can lead to untreated dental problems and a reluctance to seek necessary dental care. Treatment options for dental anxiety may include relaxation techniques, sedation dentistry, and counseling.
Dental auxiliaries are individuals who work in the dental field to assist dentists in providing oral healthcare services. They are trained professionals who provide a range of support services to dentists, including patient care, treatment planning, and administrative tasks. Dental auxiliaries include dental hygienists, dental assistants, dental therapists, dental technicians, and dental office managers. Each of these professionals has a specific role and set of responsibilities within the dental practice. Dental hygienists are responsible for providing preventive care services, including teeth cleaning, fluoride treatments, and oral cancer screenings. They also work closely with patients to educate them about oral hygiene and disease prevention. Dental assistants assist dentists during procedures, such as fillings, extractions, and cleanings. They also take x-rays, prepare patients for treatment, and sterilize equipment. Dental therapists are trained to provide a range of dental services, including teeth cleaning, fluoride treatments, and simple restorative procedures. They work in areas where access to dental care is limited, such as rural or remote communities. Dental technicians create dental prosthetics, such as crowns, bridges, and dentures, using molds and impressions taken from patients' teeth. Dental office managers oversee the day-to-day operations of a dental practice, including scheduling appointments, managing finances, and ensuring that the practice is compliant with regulations and standards. Overall, dental auxiliaries play a critical role in providing high-quality dental care to patients and ensuring that dental practices run smoothly and efficiently.
In the medical field, a dental arch refers to the curved shape formed by the teeth in the mouth. There are two types of dental arches: the upper dental arch and the lower dental arch. The upper dental arch is the arch formed by the upper teeth, including the incisors, canines, premolars, and molars. The lower dental arch is the arch formed by the lower teeth, including the incisors, canines, premolars, and molars. The dental arches are important for proper chewing, speaking, and maintaining the overall structure of the teeth and jaw. Any abnormalities in the shape or alignment of the dental arches can lead to dental problems such as misaligned teeth, bite problems, and gum disease.
Dental care for the aged refers to the specialized dental care provided to older adults, typically those over the age of 65. This type of care is important because older adults are at a higher risk for developing dental problems, such as tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer, due to changes in their oral health and overall health as they age. Dental care for the aged may include regular dental check-ups, cleanings, and x-rays to monitor the health of the teeth and gums. It may also include the treatment of existing dental problems, such as fillings, crowns, and dentures, as well as the management of chronic conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease, which can affect oral health. In addition to traditional dental care, dental care for the aged may also include specialized services, such as oral cancer screenings, nutritional counseling, and assistance with daily oral hygiene tasks, to help older adults maintain good oral health and overall well-being.
Coronary occlusion refers to the blockage or narrowing of the coronary arteries, which are the blood vessels that supply oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle. This blockage can occur due to the buildup of plaque, a fatty substance that can harden and narrow the arteries over time. When a coronary artery becomes completely blocked, it can lead to a heart attack, as the heart muscle is unable to receive the oxygen it needs to function properly. Coronary occlusion is a serious medical condition that requires prompt diagnosis and treatment.
Dental plaque is a sticky, colorless film that forms on teeth and gums. It is made up of bacteria, food particles, saliva, and other substances. Plaque is constantly forming on teeth, but it can be removed by brushing and flossing regularly. If plaque is not removed, it can harden into tartar, which can cause gum disease and tooth decay. In the medical field, dental plaque is an important factor in maintaining oral health and preventing dental problems.
Balloon Occlusion is a medical procedure used to block or obstruct blood flow in a specific blood vessel or artery. It is typically performed using a balloon catheter, which is a thin, flexible tube with a balloon at the tip. The catheter is inserted into the blood vessel and then the balloon is inflated, which compresses the vessel and reduces blood flow. Balloon occlusion is used in a variety of medical procedures, including angioplasty, where it is used to temporarily block blood flow to a specific area of the heart in order to improve blood flow to the rest of the heart. It is also used in the treatment of aneurysms, where it is used to block blood flow to the aneurysm in order to prevent it from rupturing. In some cases, balloon occlusion may also be used to treat varicose veins or to stop bleeding in certain situations. Overall, balloon occlusion is a useful tool in the medical field for temporarily blocking blood flow to specific areas of the body in order to treat a variety of medical conditions.
Retinal vein occlusion (RVO) is a medical condition that occurs when a vein in the retina, the light-sensitive layer at the back of the eye, becomes blocked or narrowed. This blockage can cause blood to build up and damage the retina, leading to vision loss or even blindness. There are two main types of RVO: central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) and branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO). CRVO occurs when the main vein that carries blood out of the retina becomes blocked, while BRVO occurs when a smaller vein branch becomes blocked. Symptoms of RVO may include sudden vision loss, floaters (spots or specks that appear in your field of vision), and vision distortion. Treatment options for RVO may include medications, laser therapy, or surgery, depending on the severity and location of the blockage. Early detection and treatment are important to prevent further vision loss.
Retinal artery occlusion (RAO) is a medical condition in which there is a blockage of blood flow to the retina, the light-sensitive layer at the back of the eye. This can cause vision loss or even blindness if not treated promptly. RAO can be caused by a variety of factors, including high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, smoking, and blood clots. There are two types of RAO: central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) and branch retinal artery occlusion (BRAO). CRAO is a more severe condition that affects the main artery to the retina, while BRAO affects a smaller branch artery. Treatment for RAO may include medications to dissolve blood clots, surgery to remove blood clots, or laser therapy to help blood flow to the retina.
Dental amalgam is a type of dental filling material that is commonly used to restore teeth that have been damaged by decay or injury. It is made up of a mixture of metals, including silver, tin, copper, and mercury, which are combined to form a hard, durable material that can be shaped to fit the contours of a tooth. Dental amalgam has been used for over 150 years and is still widely used today because it is effective, durable, and relatively inexpensive. It is also a safe and effective treatment option for most patients, as the amount of mercury used in dental amalgam is very small and is not considered to be a health risk. However, some people may be concerned about the use of mercury in dental amalgam and may choose to have alternative filling materials, such as composite resin or glass ionomer cement, instead. It is important to discuss the pros and cons of different filling materials with your dentist to determine the best option for your individual needs.
Dental assistants are healthcare professionals who work under the supervision of dentists to provide a range of dental care services to patients. They are responsible for assisting dentists during procedures, preparing patients for treatment, taking and developing dental x-rays, sterilizing equipment, and maintaining dental records. Dental assistants may also perform administrative tasks such as scheduling appointments, answering phones, and billing patients. They play a vital role in ensuring that dental procedures are performed safely and efficiently, and they are an important part of the dental team.
Arterial occlusive diseases refer to a group of medical conditions in which the arteries become narrowed or blocked, leading to reduced blood flow to the affected area. This can result in a range of symptoms, depending on the location and severity of the blockage. The most common types of arterial occlusive diseases include: 1. Atherosclerosis: A condition in which plaque builds up inside the arteries, causing them to narrow and harden. 2. Peripheral artery disease (PAD): A condition that affects the arteries in the legs, causing pain, cramping, and weakness in the legs, especially during physical activity. 3. Coronary artery disease (CAD): A condition that affects the arteries that supply blood to the heart, leading to chest pain, shortness of breath, and other symptoms. 4. Carotid artery disease: A condition that affects the arteries in the neck, leading to a reduced blood flow to the brain, which can cause stroke. Treatment for arterial occlusive diseases may include lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking, eating a healthy diet, and exercising regularly, as well as medications to manage symptoms and prevent further progression of the disease. In some cases, surgery or other medical procedures may be necessary to open or bypass blocked arteries.
Dental anesthesia is a type of anesthesia that is used to numb the mouth and teeth during dental procedures. It is typically administered by a dentist or dental anesthesiologist and can be either local or general anesthesia. Local anesthesia numbs a specific area of the mouth, such as a tooth or a small area around the tooth, and is commonly used for procedures such as fillings, extractions, and root canals. General anesthesia, on the other hand, numbs the entire body and is used for more extensive procedures such as wisdom tooth removal or oral surgery. Dental anesthesia is an important part of dental care, as it helps to ensure that patients are comfortable and pain-free during dental procedures. It is also important to note that dental anesthesia is safe and effective when administered by a qualified healthcare professional.
Fluorosis, dental, is a condition that occurs when there is an excessive intake of fluoride, particularly during tooth development. It is characterized by white or brown stains on the teeth, which can become more severe over time and lead to pitting and decay of the teeth. Fluorosis can occur naturally in areas with high levels of fluoride in the water supply or can be caused by the use of fluoride supplements or toothpaste in excessive amounts. It is typically diagnosed through a visual examination of the teeth and is usually not a cause for concern if it is mild. However, severe cases of dental fluorosis can affect the appearance and function of the teeth and may require treatment.
