Palatal bone support for orthodontic implant anchorage--a clinical and radiological study. (1/277)

When maximal anchorage is required during orthodontic treatment, additional aids are often needed to support the anchoring teeth. While intra-oral aids may be limited in their anchorage potential, extra-oral anchoring aids are often rejected by the patients. Endosseous implants may therefore be a valuable alternative for stable intra-oral anchorage. However, the possibility of using conventional implants is insufficient, e.g. for treating purely orthodontic patients with full dentition or where extraction sites are to be closed. Therefore, the mid-sagittal area of the palate is an alternative insertion site for the placement of implants for orthodontic anchorage. The limited bone height in this area inspired this comparison between bone thickness in the implantation site as verified by probing during the implantation of Straumann Ortho-system implants, and thickness as measured on the lateral cephalogram. The results suggest that vertical bone support is at least 2 mm higher than apparent on the cephalogram. In none of 12 patients was a perforation to the nasal cavity found. However, in five subjects the implant projected into the nasal cavity on the post-operative cephalogram. These results were supported by the study of the projections of palate and wires in wire-marked skulls where the wires were placed bilaterally on the nasal floor and on the nasal crest. It is therefore concluded that the mid-sagittal area of the palate lends sufficient bony support for the implantation of small implants (4-6 mm endosseous length, diameter 3.3 mm).  (+info)

Motivation for and satisfaction with orthodontic-surgical treatment: a retrospective study of 28 patients. (2/277)

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 crystal growth technique--a laboratory evaluation of bond strengths. (3/277)

An ex vivo study was carried out to determine differences in the bond strengths achieved with brackets placed using a crystal growth technique compared with a conventional acid-etch technique. A solution of 37 per cent phosphoric acid was used for acid-etching and a commercially available polyacrylic acid gel, Crystal-lok for crystal growth. A heavily-filled composite resin was used for all samples to bond brackets to healthy premolar teeth extracted for orthodontic purposes. Polycrystalline ceramic and stainless steel brackets were used and tested to both tensile and shear failure using an Instron Universal Testing machine. The tensile and shear bond strengths were recorded in kgF. In view of difficulties experienced with previous authors using different units to describe their findings, the data were subsequently converted to a range of units in order to facilitate direct comparison. The crystal growth technique produced significantly lower bond strengths than the acid-etch technique for ceramic and stainless steel brackets, both in tensile and shear mode. The tensile bond strength for stainless steel brackets with crystal growth was 2.2 kg compared with 6.01 kg for acid-etch, whilst with ceramic brackets the tensile bond strengths were 3.9 kg for crystal growth and 5.55 kg for acid-etch. The mean shear bond strength for stainless steel brackets with crystal growth was 12.61 kg compared with 21.55 kg for acid-etch, whilst with ceramic brackets the shear bond strengths were 7.93 kg with crystal growth compared with 16.55 kg for acid-tech. These bond strengths were below those previously suggested as clinically acceptable.  (+info)

Multi-bracket appliance in management of mandibular reconstruction with vascularized bone graft. (4/277)

BACKGROUND: The most commonly used tool for maxillo-mandibular fixation to the patient who underwent reconstruction using a vascularized bone graft after mandibular resection is a dental arch-bar. However, the occlusal relationship achieved by this method is not ideal. Different from the dental arch-bar, the multi-bracket appliance which is frequently used in orthodontic treatment can control the position of each individual tooth three dimensionally. Thus, this appliance was applied for maxillo-mandibular fixation to patients who underwent mandibular reconstruction using a vascularized bone graft. METHODS: A multi-bracket appliance was applied to three patients. Prior to the surgery, standard edgewise brackets were bonded to the teeth in the maxilla and in the remaining mandible. After mandibular resection, wires for maxillo-mandibular fixation were applied. The harvested bone was then carefully fixed with miniplates to maintain the occlusion. The multi-bracket appliance was worn for 3 months when the wound contraction became mild. RESULTS: All three cases demonstrated stable and good occlusion. They also demonstrated satisfactory post-surgical facial appearance. CONCLUSIONS: Compared to conventional dental arch-bars, a multi-bracket appliance offers improved management of mandibular reconstruction. Firstly, its properties are helpful in maintaining occlusion of the remaining dentition accurately in bone grafting procedure as well as protecting against postsurgical wound contraction. Secondly, the multi-bracket appliance keeps the oral cavity clean without periodontal injury. As a result, stable occlusion of the residual teeth and good facial appearance were obtained.  (+info)

A comparison of sagittal and vertical effects between bonded rapid and slow maxillary expansion procedures. (5/277)

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)

Rare earth magnets in orthodontics: an overview. (6/277)

Magnets have been used in dentistry for many years. They can be made to push or pull teeth. The force they deliver can be directed, and they can exert their force through mucosa and bone, as well as within the mouth. In orthodontics they are used for intrusion of teeth, tooth movement along archwires, expansion, retention, in functional appliances, and in the treatment of impacted teeth. New 'high energy' magnets are capable of producing very high forces relative to their size. Although magnets are potentially very useful there are a number of problems that severely affect their performance; the force produced between any two magnets falls dramatically with distance, significant irreversible loss in force is seen if the magnets are heated and a dramatic reduction in force is seen if the magnets are not ideally aligned to one another. In addition, magnets corrode badly in the mouth and a robust coating is required to protect them. This paper outlines the background to high energy magnets used in orthodontics, discusses the relevant physical and biological properties of them, and reviews their applications.  (+info)

Patients' anticipation of pain and pain-related side effects, and their perception of pain as a result of orthodontic treatment with fixed appliances. (7/277)

The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between (i) the pain and its side effects, anticipated by patients before orthodontic therapy, and (ii) the reported pain and its effects after the placement of initial archwires. Before treatment, 50 adolescent patients (median age 13.6 years, range 8.9-39.3 years, 28 female, 22 male) completed a questionnaire concerning their facial and dental appearance, and their expectations regarding pain, its influence on their daily lives, and changes in their facial and dental appearance as a result of orthodontic treatment. In the week following insertion of the initial archwires the patients completed a series of eight questionnaires, where they reported the level of pain experienced and its influence on their daily lives. In the week after archwire insertion, the maximum pain levels reported did not differ statistically from the anticipated pain levels. Patients significantly under-estimated the changes they would have to make in their diet as a response to pain after archwire insertion. Patients who anticipated a greater effect of pain on their leisure activities and those who had a history of frequent headaches reported higher levels of pain and more disruption of their daily lives as a result of pain. This pattern of response is consistent with a medical model where anxious patients and those with a history of chronic pain reported more pain after surgery.  (+info)

Sensory and motor changes of the human jaw muscles during induced orthodontic pain. (8/277)

The aim of this study was to evaluate the short-term effects of orthodontic pain on the pressure pain threshold (PPT) of the masseter and anterior temporalis muscles, and on their electromyographic (EMG) activity during clenching and chewing. Orthodontic pain was induced in 14 healthy subjects (mean age 26.6, SEM 1.1) by placing orthodontic separators. The subjects were randomly assigned to an experimental and to a control session in a double-blind crossover study. PPT was significantly reduced (Student's t-test; P < 0.001) after experimental sessions for both the masseter and the anterior temporalis muscles, whereas no significant differences were found during control sessions (P > 0.05). EMG activity during clenching and chewing was significantly reduced (0.001 < or = P < 0.05) after experimental sessions for both masseter and anterior temporalis muscles, whereas no significant differences were found during control sessions (P > 0.05). The decrease of PPT found in this study can be related to the occurrence of muscle pain and headache reported by patients during orthodontic or other dental treatment. The decrease of EMG activity of the jaw muscles associated with orthodontic pain is consistent with the pain adaptation model and should be considered as a potential factor for loss of occlusal anchorage during orthodontic treatment.  (+info)

Definition of Orthodontic appliance in the Legal Dictionary - by Free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. What is Orthodontic appliance? Meaning of Orthodontic appliance as a legal term. What does Orthodontic appliance mean in law?
Whenever patients think of orthodontia, they typically think of braces. For young patients, braces are common orthodontic appliances that they can receive to straighten their teeth and correct any dental issues. Child orthodontics includes other appliances than just braces, though, and these appliances fulfill an important function in your childs overall treatment. Orthodontic appliances change the way your childs mouth works by correcting certain bone problems. Headgear, for example, guides the jaw into the proper direction by holding the upper jaw until the lower jaw can catch up with it. Retainers are other useful tools that keep teeth in the correct position after braces are removed, and most children will use some type of retainer during or after their treatment.. There are other orthodontic appliances that arent as well known but are used quite often in child orthodontics. The Nance Button is one of those appliances that uses a holding arch to maintain space in the mouth for ...
A low profile orthodontic appliance and method of designing custom and standard low profile orthodontic appliances are provided. The archwire of the appliance is not parallel to the dental archform but converges toward the archform preferably in the vicinity of the incisors. Slotted brackets on either the laterals, the cuspids or the first bicuspids have mesially rotated slots to support the archwire in sloped relation to the teeth. For standardized appliances, the slot rotation may be provided only in brackets for the upper laterals and the lower cuspids. For Caucasians, the preferred rotation angles are 4.5 and 6 degrees respectively. For Asians, the rotation angles are preferably distributed over brackets for the laterals, cuspids and first bicuspids. Tooth to archwire spacing is not more than 0.05 inches for all teeth but the upper laterals. The archwire shape is designed in custom appliances by digitizing tooth shape of a patient, calculating ideal finish tooth positions and ideal bracket
A bonding tray for indirect bonding of orthodontic appliances includes a body adapted to fit over at least a portion of the dental arch. One or more orthodontic appliances are releasably connected to the body, and a photocurable adhesive material extends across the base or bonding pad of each appliance for bonding the appliance to a tooth. An outer surface of the body includes at least one receptacle for removably receiving a source of light in order to facilitate curing the photocurable adhesive material.
Fixed orthodontic appliances might be associated with intraoral adverse effects on enamel, due to plaque accumulation and their colonization by oral microbes. At the same time, the demand for esthetic alternatives to orthodontic treatment, like thermoplastic aligners, is growing. However, thermoplastic aligners may behave differently intraorally than fixed appliances in terms of bacterial colonization and biofilm formation. Therefore, the aim of this prospective cohort study was to assess the salivary prevalence of the cariogenic bacteria Streptococcus mutans, Lactobacillus acidophilus, and Streptococcus sanguinis among adolescents treated orthodontically with thermoplastic aligners or fixed appliances. Thirty adolescent patients (17 girls/13 boys; mean age 13.8 years old) were assigned to treatment with either (i) self-ligating fixed appliances with nickel-titanium archwires or (ii) aligners constructed from clear transparent polyethylenterephthalat-glycol copolyester (PET-G) thermoplastic sheets.
An indirect bonding apparatus is made by initially placing spacer material over a replica of the patients tooth structure. A tray is then formed over the spacer material and hardened. Next, the spacer material is removed from the tooth replica and orthodontic appliances are placed on the replica at desired locations. A matrix material is placed between the tray and the replica and allowed to harden. Optionally, the apparatus includes features for facilitating removal of the transfer apparatus after the bonding procedure has been completed, and features for applying firm, uniform pressure to the appliances during the bonding procedure. Other aspects of indirect bonding are also described.
During fixed orthodontic treatment, metal wires are held in place by elastic bands on orthodontic brackets (braces) on each tooth and inserted into bands around the molars. The orthodontic archwires can be made from stainless steel, nickel-titanium (Ni-Ti)[19] or a more aesthetic ceramic material. Ni-Ti is used as the initial arch wire as it has good flexibility, allowing it to exert the same forces regardless of how much it has been deflected. There is also heat activated Ni-Ti wire which tightens when it is heated to body temperature.[20] The arch wires interact with the brackets to move teeth into the desired positions. Fixed orthodontic appliances aid tooth movement, and are used when a 3-D movement of the tooth is required in the mouth and multiple tooth movement is necessary. Ceramic fixed appliances can be used which more closely mimic the tooth colour than the metal brackets. Some manufacturers offer self-litigating fixed appliances where the metal wires are held by an integral clip on ...

Orthodontic treatment is the main treatment procedure to achieve a well-aligned dental arch and an esthetic smile. For this purpose, various types of removable or fixed orthodontic appliances are designed. However, each has their specific disadvantages. The most important one is that orthodontic appliances especially the brackets and the ligation mode create new retention areas in addition to blocking plaque-removing shear forces arising from fluid flow and masticatory loads with a resultant undesired effect of accumulation of dental plaque. Increased amount of dental plaque containing cariogenic bacteria is the main etiologic factor in decalcification of enamel during orthodontic treatment. This demineralization of the tooth surfaces results in appearance of white spots or even caries. However, in the literature, there are conflicting results in the relationship between orthodontic treatment and development of dental caries. Many preventive methods such as topical fluoride application, using bonding

A positive mold for use in creating an orthodontic appliance is produced by obtaining a digital dentition model, such as a 3D geometric surface model or a 3D volumetric image model, that defines the shape of an orthodontic appliance and then altering the digital dentition model to remove a portion that does not affect the shape of the orthodontic appliance. The altered digital dentition model then is used to construct a positive mold for the orthodontic appliance. Processing circuitry, such as a programmed computer, is used to obtain and alter the digital dentition model. A rapid prototyping device, such as a stereolithography machine, is commonly used to construct the positive mold.
An orthodontic appliance is provided which consists of a tooth positioner mouth piece which contains impressions of the upper and lower teeth of a patient in corrected positions, and an electric motor mounted on the extra oral bow of a usual orthodontic headgear, and mechanically coupled to the mouth piece for introducing vibrations into the mouth piece. In a second embodiment, the mouth piece is pulsed by an electrically energized hydraulic pump.

Having orthodontic treatment in childhood is ideal because we can take advantage of a youngsters natural growth processes to help move the teeth into proper alignment. Like the rest of the body, the teeth and jaws are now changing rapidly. So at this time its possible (for example) to create more room for teeth in a crowded mouth by using a palatal expander to rapidly widen the upper jaw. This phase of growth modification can shorten overall treatment time and ensure the best result if additional orthodontic appliances are needed.. But remember, healthy teeth can be moved at any age, so youve never missed the boat for orthodontic treatment. In fact, about one in five of todays orthodontic patients are adults. Several new technological developments - including tooth-colored ceramic braces, clear aligners and invisible lingual braces - have made orthodontic appliances less evident, and enhanced the treatment experience for grown-ups.

Young adults, of typical age and gender distribution of lingual orthodontic patients [41, 42], were chosen as good candidates to wear lingual appliances (1) because they are more interested in esthetic appliances and then (2) because in children and adolescents, some teeth are partially erupted and not good for taking precise impressions for lingual setup and indirect bonding. Moreover, in the literature, we can find many articles analyzing various similar ranges of age [17, 22, 34, 43, 44]. The majority of patients enrolled in the present study were females less than 23 years of age. Stadelmann et al. found that almost a quarter of the population undergoes an orthodontic treatment, half of it with a mean age of 15 to 24 years old [45].. As regards intragroup differences, the significant increases in PI and GBI values from T 0 to T 2 in the lingual orthodontic group could be explained by the fact that plaque deposits on the lingual gingival margin of the teeth are more difficult to remove with ...

For patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea, oral appliances are a great form of treatment. The oral appliance is worn while you sleep and is used to keep your throat (airways) open. Some oral appliances work by slightly bringing your jaw forward.. Others work by holding your tongue down in place. Either form works to reduce snoring and help with mild sleep apnea. These oral appliances are usually available through your dentist.. Keep in mind that because there are several different types, you might need to use trial and error to find the right oral appliance for you. Dont get discouraged if the first one doesnt work well for you. You have options. Once you choose one, youll return to your dentist frequently during the first year of use to ensure it fits properly and is working well. ...
After the comprehensive oral evaluation appointment, the mandibular repositioning appliance (MRA) is fabricated by the lab. Then the patient comes in for a fitting appointment, during which we check the appliance intraorally for proper fit, alignment, and occlusion. Any necessary adjustments are made during that appointment. The patient is also educated about how to take care of the appliance, what new morning routines are needed to avoid TMJ problems, and oral hygiene instructions are reviewed. We also fabricate a custom morning repositioner device to prevent occlusal changes in the patients dentition.. After that the patient comes in every 2-3 weeks for titration treatment. This time is necessary for the muscles and TMJ to adjust to each new position.

Were seeing more and more adult orthodontic patients these days, and its not hard to figure out why. Appliances that are barely noticeable have been developed to give adults more discreet choices when it comes to orthodontic treatment. And many adults realize that investing in a smile makeover can have significant benefits, socially and professionally. Straightening teeth can be an important part of that confidence-boosting makeover process.. Healthy teeth can be moved at any age, so theres no such thing as being too old for braces. However, orthodontic treatment for adults is different in two important respects: For one thing, the growth and development of the jaws is complete in adults, so changes in actual jaw structure cant be accomplished with orthodontic appliances in the way they can with a growing child.. Secondly, periodontal (gum) disease is more prevalent in adults than in children. While you are wearing the orthodontic appliances, gentle forces will be applied to your teeth so ...
An appliance plug is a three-conductor power connector originally developed for kettles, toasters and similar small appliances. It was common in the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden. It has largely been made obsolete and replaced by IEC 60320 C15 and C16 connectors, or proprietary connectors to base plates for cordless kettles. It still occurs on some traditional ceramic electric jugs. It is also used for some laboratory water stills. On some models of the classical ceramic electric jug, the appliance plug prevents the lid from being raised while the connector is inserted. This is important as during operation of these jugs, the water it contains is connected to the electric mains and is an electric shock risk. Appliance plugs were also used to supply power to electric toasters, electric coffee percolators, electric frypans, and many other appliances. An appliance plug is to some degree heat resistant, but the maximum working temperature varied from ...

3D: 3D technology has gone mainstream. Inexpensive consumer-level 3D printers are already a thing and they are just getting better and less expensive.. Earlier this year, a dentist in Brazil used a smart phone based 3D application to create an amazing facial prosthesis for a cancer patient who had lost a significant portion of his face.. Much of dentistry is a highly customized fabrication process. Dentists make very specific unique custom made items such as crowns, bridges, dentures or orthodontic appliances. Dentists have adapted traditional manufacturing processes in order to do this. These adapted traditional processes are based on old technology. Some of them really old, like lost wax casting which has been around for 5000 years or so.. 3D digital fabrication will replace all the old methods. A great example is clear aligner technology. Clear aligner manufacturers use 3D digital models to create a very specific set of orthodontic appliances with no need for impression material, plaster ...

Increased tooth mobility persists after fixed orthodontic appliance removal, which is therapeutically utilized for post-treatment finishing with positioners. As such a fine adjustment is only required for selected teeth, the aim of this pilot study was to investigate tooth mobility in vivo on corrected and uncorrected subgroups under positioner therapy. Mobility was measured on upper teeth of 10 patients (mean age 16.8) by applying loadings for 0.1, 1.0 and 10.0 s with a novel device directly after multibracket appliance debonding as much as 2d, 1, 2 and 6 weeks later. Positioners were inserted at day 2. Specimens were divided into Group C (teeth corrected via positioner), Group N (uncorrected teeth adjacent to teeth from group C), and Group U (uncorrected teeth in an anchorage block). Untreated individuals served as controls (n = 10, mean age 22.4). Statistics were performed via Kolmogorov-Smirnov test and Welchs unequal variances t-test for comparisons between groups.

Aims: Previous studies on maxillary molar distalization have usually concentrated on only one appliance and featured small sample sizes. The purpose of this retrospective study was two-fold: (1) to determine the skeletal, dental, and soft tissue effects of 3 molar distalization appliances, 2 of which do not depend upon patient compliance (ie, distal jet and Greenfield molar distalizing appliance) and 1 that does (ie, sagittal appliance combined with cervical headgear); and (2) to determine differences in treatment effects among the 3 appliances. Methods: Pretreatment and post-distalization cephalometric radiographs were obtained for each appliance (14 females and 11 males for the distal jet; 12 females and 13 males for the Greenfield molar distalizing appliance; and 17 females and 13 males for the sagittal appliance with headgear). Results: Pretreatment to transition evaluation showed significant distal movement of the first molars for the distal jet (3.4 mm), the Greenfield molar distalizing ...
Myofunctional Appliances. Functional appliances are used before fixed appliances, in cases where there are growth related problems of the jaws. They are removable/fixed appliances that work by posturing the lower jaw forward and in doing so reducing the gap between the top and bottom teeth. Treatment time takes about 6-9 months, depending on how well they are worn and fixed appliances are usually used after this to align the teeth. This treatment is best carried out when the patient is young going through the growth phase so that jaw growth can be stimulated to help reduce the prominence of the upper teeth. Myofunctional appliance holds the lower jaw forward and guides eruption of the teeth into a more desirable bite while helping the upper and lower jaws to grow in proportion with each other. Patient compliance in wearing this appliance is essential for successful improvement.. When do you give this appliance?. If a child has got small lower jaw giving him an appearance of bird face, a custom ...

Orthodontic appliances are designed according to the problem being treated. They may be removable or fixed (cemented and/or bonded). They may be made of metal, ceramic or plastic. They can be placed on the labial or lingual surfaces of the teeth (or in some situations, both). All orthodontic appliances have one goal -- to use gentle pressure to move teeth into their proper positions. The body then builds new bone to support the new positions of the teeth.. New techniques and materials contribute to fewer office visits and reduced treatment time in addition to reducing the discomfort of orthodontic treatment. Advancements in technology have made brackets smaller and stronger than before. NASA developed one of the late 20th centurys most dramatic orthodontic breakthroughs, heat-activated nickel-titanium alloy wires. At room temperature, heat-activated nickel-titanium wires are very flexible. As they warm to body temperature they become active and gradually move the teeth to the shape of the ...

a) Maxillary Expansion Appliance (MEA):. This appliance is also called the rapid palatal expansion appliance or palatal expander. It widens an otherwise narrowed upper jaw by spreading the bony suture in the palate. It is highly effective in correction of crowding during preadolescence. In post-adolescent patients the sagittal suture system becomes less adaptive with a tendency for the expanded jaw to relapse.. b) Headgear:. An orthopedic appliance which reduces forward growth of the upper jaw, and therefore corrects the overbite (bucked teeth). It is made of two components, a face bow which is attached to the braces inside the mouth, and a traction mechanism which sits on top of the head or behind the neck. Headgear is usually worn at night.. c) Herbst:. A fix-functional appliance; it holds the lower jaw forward causing stimulation of growth in a forward direction. It is used for severe overbites when the lower jaw is underdeveloped.. ...
Method for making a tooth positioning and retaining appliance with air holes. The apparatus includes a mold with a cavity having models of the upper and lower teeth arranged so that when an appliance is molded thereby the appliance will have upper and lower archways for receiving upper and lower arches of a person, tooth sockets in the archways arranged in ideal relationship and preselected positions to urge the teeth received thereby into the preselected positions of the sockets. The mold additionally includes air hole or airway forming means extending across the models of the teeth in the mold and being insertable into the mold prior to the molding operation and thereafter removable from the mold with the molded appliance. The air hole forming means is easily separable from the appliance to ultimately define the air holes between the archways and between the labial and lingual sides of the appliance. The method of making the air holes concerns the handling of the mold and the air hole forming means.
The aim of this study was to determine if diffusible angiogenic growth factors were released in human dental pulp during orthodontic tooth movement. These factors, if diffusible, could induce angiogenesis in other tissues, and may then be isolated and identified. The pulps from 14 premolar teeth treated with straight wire fixed orthodontic appliances for 2 weeks were compared with those of 14 untreated control premolar teeth from the same subjects. Following tooth extraction and sectioning, 1-mm horizontal sections of pulp tissue were embedded in collagen with l-mm sections of rat aorta and co-cultured in growth media for up to 4 weeks. Sections of rat aorta alone were also cultured. Angiogenic changes in the form of microvessel growth were observed by light microscopy. Microvessel identification was confirmed by electron microscopy and by immunohistochemistry using staining for factor VIII-related antigen marker for endothelial cells.. When compared at days 5, 10 and 14 of co-culture, the ...

conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help broaden the taste buds or jaws and to otherwise help in forming the teeth and jaws.. Orthodontic treatment can focus on dental displacement just, or deal with the control and adjustment of facial development. In the latter case it is much better specified as dentofacial orthopedics. For comprehensive orthodontic treatment, metal wires are placed into orthodontic brackets (braces), which can be made from stainless steel or a more aesthetic ceramic material. The wires interact with the brackets to move teeth into the wanted positions. Invisalign or other aligner trays consist of clear plastic trays that move teeth. Functional appliances are typically utilized to redirect jaw development.. Dental lightening, also called tooth lightening, is a common procedure in general dentistry. According to the FDA, bleaching restores natural tooth color and whitening whitens beyond the natural color. There are numerous methods available, such as brushing, ...
Your childs little baby teeth have some big responsibilities. Until the adolescent years, they will not only help your youngster bite and chew (i.e., get proper nutrition) and speak correctly but also help guide the permanent teeth underneath them into proper position. In fact, a major function of baby teeth is to hold space for the adult teeth that will eventually push them out.. At least thats how its supposed to work; sometimes, however, injury or disease can cause a baby tooth to be lost prematurely. When that happens, the permanent teeth that are coming in on either side can actually drift into the space that was reserved for another tooth. This can cause teeth to erupt out of position or to be blocked entirely, and it may result in crowded or crooked teeth.. Fortunately, if your child loses a tooth prematurely, theres a dental appliance that can be used to hold the space open for the permanent tooth that is meant to fill it. The device is, not surprisingly, called a space maintainer ...
Space maintainers are appliances made to custom fit your childs mouth to maintain the space intended for the permanent tooth when it decides to come in. They do this by holding open the empty space left by a lost tooth by preventing movement in the remaining teeth until the permanent tooth takes its natural position in the childs mouth. This treatment is much more affordable and much easier on your child than to move them back later with orthodontic procedures. Think of space maintainers as insurance against braces. Why are they important to childrens dental care? Well, baby teeth usually stay in place until pushed out by a permanent tooth that takes its place. Unfortunately, some children lose baby teeth too early. A tooth may be knocked out accidentally or be removed due to severe disease. When this occurs, a space maintainer may be required to prevent future dental problems. Space maintainers encourage normal development of the jaw bones and muscles, and save space for the permanent ...

The field of orthodontics is most commonly associated with treatment for pre-teens and teenagers, but an increasing amount of adults are choosing to correct jaw irregularities (malocclusions) and misaligned teeth with orthodontics. It is now estimated that approximately one third of all orthodontic patients are adults. The major advantage of treating irregularities at a young age is that orthodontic appliances are widely accepted in youth and ideal alignment can be achieved before adulthood. Most orthodontists agree, however, that it is never too late to get braces. Aside from the pleasing aesthetic of a beautifully straight smile, correcting malocclusion and teeth misalignment with braces is beneficial for a number of other reasons: Reduced Tooth Decay - Misaligned teeth can make maintaining adequate oral hygiene incredibly difficult. Hard-to-reach spaces can become breeding grounds for the oral bacteria that cause tooth decay.. Reduced Wear and Tear - Chewing capability is impacted by ...

if you are an adult with enough determination to change, you most likely can change the muscle tone by increased chewing each day of tough gum like I have, without the use of stage 3 biobloc..
