The identification of agreed criteria for referral following the dental inspection of children in the school setting. (1/688)

AIM: To clarify the function of the school based dental inspection. OBJECTIVE: For representatives of the Community Dental Service, General Dental Service and Hospital Dental Service to identify an agreed set of criteria for the referral of children following school dental inspection. DESIGN: Qualitative research methodology used to establish a consensus for the inclusion of referral criteria following dental screening. SETTING: Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, England. MATERIALS: A Delphi technique was used to establish a consensus amongst the study participants on the inclusion of nine possible criteria for referral following dental screening. All participants scored each criterion in the range 1-9, with a score of 1 indicating that referral of individuals with the condition should definitely not take place, and a score of 9 indicating referral should definitely take place. Referral criteria were accepted only if they achieved a group median score of 7 or more, with an interquartile range of three scale points, with the lower value being no less than 7. RESULTS: Four of the nine possible criteria met the agreed group standard for inclusion: 'Sepsis', 'Caries in the secondary dentition', 'Overjet > 10 mm', and 'Registered & caries in the permanent dentition'. CONCLUSION: It is possible to agree clear criteria for the referral of children following the school dental inspection.  (+info)

Morphological changes in periodontal mechanoreceptors of mouse maxillary incisors after the experimental induction of anterior crossbite: a light and electron microscopic observation using immunohistochemistry for PGP 9.5. (3/688)

Ruffini nerve endings (mechanoreceptors) in the periodontal ligament (PDL) of mouse incisors were examined to elucidate whether experimentally-induced crossbites cause any changes or abnormalities in their morphology and distribution. Anterior guiding planes were attached to the mandibular incisors of 3-week-old C3H/HeSlc mice. At 3 days and 1, 2, 4, 6, and 8 weeks post-attachment of the appliance, the mice were sacrificed by perfusion fixation. Frozen sagittal cryostat sections of the decalcified maxillary incisors were processed for immunohistochemistry of protein gene product 9.5, followed by histochemical determination of tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase activity to reveal sites of alveolar bone resorption. Despite the absence of bone resorption within the lingual PDL of control mice, distinct resorption sites were seen in the respective regions of the experimental animals. Unlike the controls, many Ruffini endings showing vague and swollen contours, with unusually long and pedunculated micro-projections were observed in the affected lingual PDL of the incisors in the experimental animals with short-term anterior crossbite induction. Club-shaped nerve terminations with few, if any, micro-projections were observed in the lingual PDL of experimental animals with long-term induction, as well as in aged control mouse incisors. Differences in the distribution of Ruffini endings were also observed. These results indicate that changing the direction of the force applied to the PDL results in rapid and prolonged changes in the morphology of Ruffini-like mechanoreceptors.  (+info)

Motivation for and satisfaction with orthodontic-surgical treatment: a retrospective study of 28 patients. (4/688)

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. (5/688)

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.  (+info)

A comparison of sagittal and vertical effects between bonded rapid and slow maxillary expansion procedures. (6/688)

The purpose of this study was to determine the vertical and sagittal effects of bonded rapid maxillary expansion (RME), and bonded slow maxillary expansion (SME) procedures, and to compare these effects between the groups. Subjects with maxillary bilateral crossbites were selected and two treatment groups with 12 patients in each were constructed. The Hyrax screw in the RME treatment group and the spring of the Minne-Expander in the SME treatment group were embedded in the posterior bite planes, which had a thickness of 1 mm. At the end of active treatment these appliances were worn for retention for an additional 3 months. Lateral cephalometric radiographs were taken at the beginning and end of treatment, and at the end of the retention period. The maxilla showed anterior displacement in both groups. The mandible significantly rotated downward and backward only in the RME group. The inter-incisal angle and overjet increased in both groups. No significant differences were observed for the net changes between the two groups.  (+info)

An appraisal of the Peer Assessment Rating (PAR) Index and a suggested new weighting system. (7/688)

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)

Assessment of clinical case presentations for the Membership in Orthodontics, Royal College of Surgeons of England 1995, 1996. (8/688)

The cases presented and treated at successive examinations by the candidates for the Membership Examination in Orthodontics in 1995 and 1996 at The Royal College of Surgeons of England, were of a very high standard and demonstrated a wide range of treatment modalities. All cases had fixed appliances, predominantly with pre-adjusted Edgewise appliances. IOTN confirmed that most cases were in great need of treatment, with PAR scores showing them to be treated to a high standard.  (+info)

What is malocclusion?Malocclusion means having crooked teeth or a poor bite. Bite refers to the way the upper and lower teeth line up. In a normal bite, the upper teeth sit slightly forward of the lower teeth. Very few people have a perfect bite.Most of the time, malocclusion is a cosmetic problem, which means that people dont like the way their teeth look. But it can also have a serious impact on self-esteem. Plus, crooked teeth can be hard to take care of, which may lead to tooth decay or tooth loss. When malocclusion is severe, it can even cause problems with eating or speaking.Orthodontic treatment can correct the way teeth and jaws line up, and that may help a person feel better about his or her appearance. Dentists who are specially trained to correct malocclusion are called orthodontists. They use a variety of tools and techniques to move teeth, and sometimes the jaw, into the right position. What causes malocclusion?Malocclusion is usually caused by problems with the shape or
Background: Traditional methods of measuring oral health mainly use clinical dental indices. In recent years, the use of subjective assessments to gain information about the impact of oral disorders on Oral-Health Related Quality of Life (OHRQoL) has been advocated. By supplementing the clinical assessments with subjective assessments, a comprehensive account of the oral health of populations can be given. Studies on the OHRQoL of children in Kenya are so far largely unexplored. Objective: This study aimed at assessing the effect of dental caries and malocclusion on the OHRQoL of 12-14 year-old children residing in Viwandani slum. Study design: This was a descriptive cross-sectional study. Subjects and methods: A total of four hundred and fifty two children aged 12-14 years attending public and private primary schools in Viwandani slum, Nairobi participated in the study. Their mean age was 12.9 years. The two public schools in the slum were included in the study. The private schools were ...

A malocclusion is an incorrect relationship between the maxilla (upper arch) and the mandible (lower arch), or a general misalignment of the teeth. Malocclusions are so common that most individuals experience one, to some degree. The poor alignment of the teeth is thought to be a result of genetic factors combined with poor oral habits, or other factors in the early years.. Moderate malocclusion commonly requires treatment by an orthodontist. Orthodontists are dentists who specialize in the treatment of malocclusions and other facial irregularities..

The aim of this study was to determine the relationship of orthodontic malocclusion with periodontal status, dental caries, and sociodemographic status. Our study population consisted of a sample of 836 school children (384 male and 452 female, aged 11–14 years). Four experienced orthodontists and two experienced periodontists performed the clinical examinations. The Treatment Priority Index (TPI), Community Periodontal Index of Treatment Needs (CPITN), decayed, missing, filled teeth (DMFT) scores, and a questionnaire that surveyed socio-demographic status of students were used. Spearman’s rank correlation coefficients were used to measure the association between variables. TPI scores showed that 36.4% of the students had normal occlusion, while 41.2% had slight, 15.7% had definite, 4% had severe, and 2.7% had very severe malocclusion. TPI values did not show any significant differences between pupils in different age, gender, socioeconomic status groups, and CPITN

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the treatment changes and post-treatment stability in dental arch dimensions in unilateral crossbite patients treated by SME while comparing the Haas, Hyrax, and Quad Helix appliances. Serial dental casts of 110 patients were evaluated at 3 time points: pre-expansion (T1), post-expansion (T2), and approximately 4 years later, before fixed appliance therapy (T3). All measurements were compared with published growth norms. Treatment by SME resulted in similarly favorable amounts of expansion by all three expanders in all measurements for both arches. Maxillary intercanine and intermolar width increased by 4.5 mm and 3.5 mm, respectively, from T1 to T3. Maxillary arch circumference also increased by 1 mm. Mandibular width did not change. At 4 years post-expansion, 97% of intercanine expansion and 80% of intermolar expansion was maintained ...
is teeth that have too much or too little room in the jaw. If children have a small jaw, their teeth may grow into a space that is too small. As a result, teeth may grow or drift out of place.. Other causes of crooked teeth include thumb-sucking, pacifier use, and tooth loss.. What are the symptoms?. The most obvious sign is teeth that are crooked or stick out. Malocclusion can range from mild to severe. Most of the time, having crooked teeth is only a cosmetic problem, meaning people dont like the way their teeth look. But in severe cases, it can cause problems with eating or speaking.. How is malocclusion diagnosed?. A dentist usually checks for malocclusion in children during regular dental visits. If the jaw or teeth are out of line, the dentist may suggest a visit to an orthodontist. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children get a checkup with an orthodontist by age 7.. An orthodontist will:. ...
The greatest energy within you which creates disharmony within your being, reality and relationships is fear. When we recognise that fear is only a reaction of being misaligned with our inner power and truth, we realise that it has little power. When we connect into our inner love, power and wisdom, fear dissolves as does disharmony. And yet disharmony is the result of our fear and can take on many forms, even an energy of its own developing in our reality. We can recognise that disharmony in relationships, with self and the world is caused by existing and expressing from a space of fear, projecting fear and all its other manifestation into the world. Fear within our beings means that disharmony is present within our mind, emotions and energy bodies, our inner world reflects into our outer world. This is a reason why chaos, anger, pain and suffering manifests within the world of the Earth, causing so many people to abuse others mentally, physically and emotionally. Often people fear connecting ...
This basic-level course discusses the etiology of malocclusions in the developing dentition, including oral and nonnutritive habits, and discusses the management of these malocclusions.
There are several different kinds of malocclusions. One common type of malocclusion is the underbite. In an underbite, the lower jaw is extended out further than normal, causing them to be in front of the upper teeth. The opposite of an underbite is an overbite, another common type of malocclusion. An overbite is when the upper front teeth are extended out over the lower teeth, which can sometimes make it so that the lower teeth bite into the roof of the mouth. Other common malocclusions include excess spacing and crowding, crossbites, upper front teeth protrusion, open bite, and more.. How each type of malocclusion is treated depends on the individual patient. In most cases, the earlier our Fountain Valley pediatric dentist begins treatment the better, so that we can ensure smoother tooth and jaw development for your child as they grow older. Some common treatments include: braces, retainers, tooth extractions, and more. Again, the treatment will depend on your childs individual situation and ...

Aim: To determine the malocclusion complexity and orthodontic treatment need in urban Iranian schoolchildren using the Index of Complexity, Outcome, and Need (ICON) and the Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need (IOTN) and to also assess the relationship between these indices. Methods: The study sample comprised 502 individuals (253 girls and 249 boys, 11 to 14 years of age), of whom one girl and five boys already had an orthodontic appliance at the time of the survey. In those individuals not wearing orthodontic appliances (n = 496), the definitive treatment need (ICON > 43) and compartments of the ICON were defined and compared between sexes. The Aesthetic Component and Dental Health Component (DHC) of the IOTN were also recorded. Scatter plots and Spearman rank correlation coefficients were used to explore the relationships between the ICON and DHC and the Aesthetic Component (AC) of the IOTN. Results: According to ICON, DHC (IOTN), and Aesthetic Component (IOTN), 46.6%, 36.1%, and 17.9%, ...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the degree of abrasion in posterior teeth of subjects with unilateral posterior crossbite in the deciduous dentition. A group of 54 untreated subjects in deciduous dentition (test group, TG) was selected from a parent sample of 1500 patients from the files of the Department of Orthodontics of the University of Florence. A sample of 20 subjects with normal occlusion in the deciduous dentition was selected as the control group (CG). As experimental units in TG, 54 crossbite sides (CB, consisting of 33 right and 21 left crossbite sides) and 54 noncrossbite sides (NCB) were used. In CG, one randomly chosen single side for each subject (NCBC) was used for comparisons. The findings of the present study indicated that subjects with unilateral crossbite in the deciduous dentition showed a significantly smaller degree of dental abrasion in the crossbite side when compared with both the opposite side and control group sides. The lack of abrasion in crossbite sides was ...
The incidence of Class III malocclusions ranges from 0.8-12% [1-3]. The etiology of Class III malocclusions can be categorized as either genetic or environmental in origin [3]. The craniofacial characteristics of the Class III malocclusion may be attributed to both a positional and a dimensional disharmony of numerous components of the craniofacial skeleton involving the cranial base, the maxilla, and/or the mandible [4-6]. Ellis and McNamara [7], in their cephalometric sample of 302 adult participants with Class III malocclusions, found that 45.5% of their sample had maxillary retrusion.. Treatment modalities range from dentofacial orthopedic treatments using protraction facemasks [8] and camouflage orthodontic treatments to a combined orthodontic jaw surgery. The extra-oral protraction face mask (PFM) is the most efficient appliance for short- to long-term use [9-11]. Rapid maxillary expansion (RME), in conjunction with PFM, has been claimed to disrupt circummaxillary sutures, which in turn ...
The aim of this longitudinal study was to assess whether correction of unilateral posterior crossbite in the primary dentition results in improvement of facial symmetry and increase of palatal surface area and palatal volume. A group of 60 Caucasian children in the primary dentition, aged 5.3 ± 0.7 years, were collected at baseline. The group consisted of 30 children with a unilateral posterior crossbite with midline deviation of at least 2 mm (CB) and 30 without malocclusion (NCB). The CB group was treated using an acrylic plate expander. The childrens faces and dental casts were scanned using a three-dimensional laser scanning device. Non-parametric tests were used for data analysis to assess differences over the 30 months period of follow-up. The CB children had statistically significantly greater facial asymmetry in the lower part of the face (P , 0.05) and a significantly smaller palatal volume (P , 0.05) than the NCB children at baseline. There were no statistically significant ...
CLASSIFICATION OF SKELETAL AND DENTAL MALOCCLUSION: REVISITED. Introduction: The orthodontic dental classification used datedes for more than 100 years. The skeletal and dental classification of malocclusion has an important role in diagnosis and treatment planning. The aim of this study is to facilitate the grouping of skeletal and dental malrelationships and to build an accurate diagnosis and to suggest treatment planning. Material and method: The main orthodontic classification systems for skeletal and dental relationship were reviewed. Results: The proposed skeletal and dental classification proved detailed accuracy and focus on relating the categories with the suggested treatment planning. The new modification of the skeletal and dental classification explained clearly the occlusal relationship and helped in setting treatment strategies. Conclusions: The present skeletal and dental classification is faster, accurate and easily applicable clinically and dealt with the shortcoming of the ...
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the energy (Qi) in the body circulates through a network of vessels (also called channels or meridians). The Chong and Ren vessels are particularly important in womans health because fertility and the menstrual cycle depend on the flow of Qi and Blood through these channels. In women whose psoriasis seems to be related to their menstrual cycle, pregnancy or childbirth, there is probably Disharmony in the Ren and Chong Vessels. (This pattern of disharmony is not exclusive to women, but it is much less common and less obvious to diagnose in men).. In this pattern, the psoriasis lesions often appear before pregnancy but disappear during pregnancy only to reappear after giving birth. In some patients, the condition becomes aggravated before the period (or possibly immediately after). The lesions are typically bright or pale red with silvery scales. They are widely distributed over the body. Itching is usually not as severe as in other patterns. ...

Orthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry that is concerned with diagnosing, treating and preventing malocclusions (bad bites) and other irregularities in the jaw region and face. Orthodontists are specially trained to correct these problems and to restore health, functionality and a beautiful aesthetic appearance to the smile. Though orthodontics was originally aimed at treating children and teenagers, almost one third of orthodontic patients are now adults. A person of any age can be successfully treated by an orthodontist.. A malocclusion (improper bite) can affect anyone at any age, and can significantly impact the individuals clarity of speech, chewing ability and facial symmetry. In addition, a severe malocclusion can also contribute to several serious dental and physical conditions such as digestive difficulties, TMJ, periodontal disease and severe tooth decay. It is important to seek orthodontic treatment early to avoid expensive restorative procedures in the future.. What ...

Treating crooked teeth requires a specialist, usually an orthodontist, although a regular dentist may be able to fix very mild cases. Before commencing orthodontic treatment, a few dental procedures may be necessary such as teeth extraction in the case of crowded teeth and orthographic surgery when the jaw is crooked. Other procedures such as teeth cleaning and whitening, filling, fixing of crowns, root canal treatment and implants may be carried out by a regular dentist.. Orthodontic treatment for crooked teeth is characterized by three stages. These include:. Pre-correction stage: This refers to the stage at which appliances are used to add space in the mouth. These include palatal ex-panders for expanding the palate width, and lingual bars for expanding the lower jaw.. Corrective stage: This is the stage at which braces are used to adjust and straighten teeth to correct malocclusion s. This could take some time depending on the severity of the malocclusion s..

INTRODUCTION. Two thirds of orthodontic patients have malocclusion in which growth and development play an important role in the success or failure of treatment and directly affect the decisions about the use of extraoral mechanics, functional appliances, extractions or even orthognathic surgeries. Orthodontists should understand the events associated with growth because maturation stages have a decisive role in diagnosis, planning and length of treatment, as well as in the prognosis of malocclusion. Orthodontists should understand the events associated with growth because maturation stages have a decisive role in diagnosis, planning and length of the treatment, as well as in the prognosis of malocclusion.13 Therefore, individual patterns of growth for each patient are fundamental factors in the success of orthodontic treatment..

Occlusion is a term used for the alignment of your teeth. Normally, your teeth need to fit easily inside your mouth, with no crowding or spacing issues. Also, none of your teeth should appear rotated or twisted. The teeth in your upper jaw should overlap the teeth of your lower jaw slightly. This would allow the pointed ridges of your molars to fit into the groves of your opposite molar. If your teeth are not in this normal occlusion, they become a victim of malocclusion.

The objective of the study was to compare the acceptability of occlusion among orthodontically treated and untreated adolescents in eight Finnish municipal health centres applying different timing of treatment. A random sample of 16- and 18-year olds (n = 2325) living in these municipalities was invited for a clinical examination, and 1109 adolescents participated. Two calibrated orthodontists blindly examined the participants for the acceptability of occlusion with the Occlusal Morphology and Function Index. The history of orthodontic treatment was elicited by questionnaire. The impact of the history and timing of treatment on the acceptability of occlusion was analysed with logistic regression analysis.. The history of orthodontic treatment decreased the odds for acceptability of morphology [odds ratio (OR) = 0.719, 95 per cent confidence limit (CL), P = 0.016] and acceptability of function (OR = 0.724, 95 per cent CL, P = 0.018). The early timing of treatment increased the odds for ...
Knowledge of the maturational and aging characteristics of both the hard and soft tissues of the face has changed the approach to the treatment of growing children, and this case illustrates this change in strategy. A 7-year-old girl, who was brought into the office by her mother (the patient from case 1), presented with mild convexity to her profile, lip incompetence, and a mild class II malocclusion (Figure 5). The proposed treatment plan included correction of the malocclusion as well as long-term esthetic goals. During the initial discussions regarding treatment, it was revealed that her father was 69 tall-an important fact to keep in mind when anticipating a young patients potential future growth. The lip changes and the amount of anticipated nasal growth, which occur during the prepubertal growth spurt, needed to be incorporated into the thinking process when designing her macroesthetic outcome.. By age 12, she had maintained a mildly dentally protrusive appearance while acquiring her ...

The overgrown teeth arch over the tongue and cause ulceration on the other side. Palpate the top of the premolars and molars with your finger to feel the sharp edges of malocclusion if possible or under anaesthesia. It is easier to do in the racehorse, but the principle of palpation is the same ...

One trend I have noticed in recent years is that many parents, whether they breast feed or bottle feed their infants, often later employ prolonged use of sippy training cups, often well past the toddler and preschool age. These days sippy training cups arent merely lidded cups with a small opening on one side of the rim to guide and slow flow rate while a child learns control; they are leak-resistant containers (bottles, actually) with very effective silicone seals in a straw or drinking spout, and consequently can be tossed about, dropped, and tossed in a gear bag, without fear of messy leaks r spills. I never liked the prolonged use of these cups because they simply dont train a child to manage fluids from an open container. Most older babies and toddlers can make the transition to open cups fairly quickly, given the opportunity, though of course there will be some spills and messes to clean along the way (I also think heavy sturdy glass tumblers train better than light, easy-to-tip ...

Maintaining financial stability of the Globalised Economics that is now all pervasive was never more acutely needed than now. The FMLC is the body of legal luminaries that addresses the legal aspects required to implement decisions taken on financial stability at the G 20 level. The author rightly sees disharmony amidst the plethora of measures announced. Indeed the persistence of absence of harmonised legal directives that support the analytical regime that emerges at G 20, will perhaps prove highly impotent when the next crisis erupts. China is embarked upon a challenge very different from the European challengers that have preceded. Whereas Europeans wanted to belong to the Global Financial Architecture that The East India Company had created, China is embarked upon constructing an East China Company Architecture. Europeans wanted to share and own The Anglosphere. China is not interested in owning The Anglosphere. The China Development Bank (CDB) is the prototype that now will see replication ...
