The functional shift of the mandible in unilateral posterior crossbite and the adaptation of the temporomandibular joints: a pilot study. (1/67)

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. (2/67)

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)

Intra-oral temperature variation over 24 hours. (3/67)

This study aimed to investigate temperature variation at archwire sites adjacent to the maxillary right central incisor and first premolar, its correlation with ambient temperature, and the influence of inter-racial variation. Twenty young adult male subjects were randomly selected (13 Asian, seven Caucasian). Thermocouples were attached to the labial archwire component of custom-made orthodontic retainers at the two intra-oral sites. A third thermocouple measured ambient temperature. A data-logger recorded temperatures at 5-second intervals over a 24-hour period. Temperatures ranged from 5.6 to 58.5 degrees C at the incisor and from 7.9 to 54 degrees C at the premolar, with medians of 34.9 degrees C and 35.6 degrees C, respectively. Ambient temperature correlated poorly with the intra-oral temperatures. The Asian and Caucasian groups had significantly different temperature distributions. On average during the 24-hour period, temperatures at the incisor site were in the range of 33-37 degrees C for 79 per cent of the time, below it for 20 per cent, and above it for only 1 per cent of the time. Corresponding figures for the premolar site were 92, 6, and 2 per cent. At both archwire sites the most frequent temperatures were in the range of 35-36 degrees C. The data presented demonstrate that the temperature at sites on an archwire in situ varies considerably over a 24-hour period and that racial differences may exist. This information should be considered during the manufacture and use of temperature-sensitive orthodontic materials, in particular nickel-titanium archwires and springs.  (+info)

A long-term evaluation of treated Class II division 2 malocclusions: a retrospective study model analysis. (4/67)

Pre-treatment, end of treatment, and post-retention study models of 30 subjects with a Class II division 2 malocclusion were assessed, after a period of at least 3 years, in order to evaluate the long-term changes in occlusion, alignment, and arch dimensions. Molar relationship correction was found to be stable after retention. There were no variables which could be used to establish a prognosis of vertical stability. Over-correction of overbite was seen to relapse. Ten per cent of the cases showed unacceptable anterior maxillary irregularities after retention. Mandibular arch width and length usually showed a decrease after retention. An increase in lower intercanine width and arch length achieved by orthodontic treatment always relapsed. This relapse was associated with post-retention mandibular irregularity and crowding. Nine cases (30 per cent) showed an unacceptable degree of mandibular irregularity after retention. Pre-treatment crowding in the mandible showed a relationship with post-retention lower irregularity and crowding. There was a correlation between the number of years which had elapsed after retention, overbite relapse and post-retention mandibular irregularity.  (+info)

Breakage incidence with direct-bonded lingual retainers. (5/67)

This study examined the effects of a number of patient and clinical variables on the breakage of bonded retainers, and consisted of a retrospective review of the survival of 200 bonded retainers. Data was collected from two clinical centres between November 1996 and February 1997. The subjects comprised 198 patients of both sexes divided into three age groups. Retainers at both centres were made in 018-inch co-axial wire with Relyabond and Helioprogress adhesives used at each respective centre. The effects on time to first breakage of adhesive, patient sex, and arch (upper/lower) were considered using Kaplan Meier survival graphs and in Log Rank Tests. Finally, a Cox Proportional Hazard Model was used to examine the joint effects of these factors and the patients' ages. Breakage over a 5-year period with Relyabond was 38.8 per cent upper, 22.1 per cent lower, and with Helioprogress 75 per cent upper and 23.2 per cent lower. Breakage appears to be unrelated to the materials used or to the age and sex of the patients. Upper retainers break more often than lowers (P = 0.016) and early breakage is more likely to occur at an adhesive pad than at a wire (9.6 versus 2.5 per cent within 6 months).  (+info)

Maxillary unilateral molar distalization with sliding mechanics: a preliminary investigation. (6/67)

Fifteen patients, eight males and seven females with a mean age of 13.32 years, were selected for unilateral molar distalization. Dentally, all presented with a unilateral Class II molar relationship. The subjects were all in the permanent dentition with second molars erupted and with a well aligned lower dental arch. For maxillary molar distalization a new intra-oral appliance was developed, the Keles Slider, which comprised two premolar and two molar bands. The anchorage unit was a Nance button with an anterior bite plane. From the palatal side, the point of distal force application was carried towards the level of centre of resistance of the maxillary first molar. A Ni-Ti coil spring was used and 200 g distal force was applied to the Class II first molar. Lateral cephalograms were taken and analysed before and 2 months after molar distalization. The Class II molars were distalized bodily, on average, 4.9 mm (P < 0.001). Mesial migration of the Class II first premolars was 1.3 mm (P < 0.05), incisor protrusion was 1.8 mm (P < 0.05) and incisor proclination 3.2 degrees (P < 0.05). The overbite was reduced by 3.1 mm (P < 0.001) and the overjet increased 2.1 mm (P < 0.01). For stabilization, the corrected Class II unilateral molar relationship was maintained with a Nance button for 2 months. The results show that this newly developed device achieved bodily distal molar movement with minimum anchorage loss.  (+info)

Maxillary retention: is longer better? (7/67)

Two different maxillary retention regimes were compared to ascertain if differences in posttreatment relapse existed. The patient pool was derived from subjects being treated at two orthodontic departments in the west of Scotland. Group 1 (20 patients) followed a 6 month regime using removable upper Hawley retainers for a period of 3 months full time and 3 months nights only. Group 2 (18 patients) followed a 1 year regime of 6 months full time and 6 months nights only. The results revealed that maxillary incisor alignment, as determined by Little's irregularity index, had relapsed by an average of 50 per cent of the end of retention value 3 months out of retention in Group 1 but only 23 per cent in Group 2. Although the actual mean values for relapse were 0.77 and 0.23 mm, respectively, seven subjects in Group 1 showed relapse of more than 3 mm as compared with only one in Group 2. This suggests that retaining a case for 1 year rather than 6 months is clinically beneficial.  (+info)

Restoration of mechanical strength and morphological features of the periodontal ligament following orthodontic retention in the rat mandibular first molar. (8/67)

Biomechanical properties and morphological features of the periodontal ligament (PDL) in the rat mandibular molars were examined during orthodontic retention. Seventy-three male rats of the Wistar strain, 8 weeks of age, were used for biomechanical analysis and six rats for morphological analysis. An elastic band was inserted between the mandibular first and second molars for 4 days; after removal of the elastic band the interdental space was filled with resin for 4 and 8 days. The maximum shear stress, tangent modulus, and failure strain energy density of the PDL of the first molar in the experimental animals decreased markedly following application of an orthodontic force. They increased rapidly and were restored completely to the control levels by the 8th day after retention. Light microscopy showed severe compression and extension of the PDL in the experimental animals on the 8th day after retention. Birefringent collagen fibre bundles running across the compressed and expanded PDL were observed, although they appeared to be thinner with less insertions into the alveolar bone or cementum in the experimental animals than in the controls. This suggests that the periodontal collagen fibres were partially reorganized and rearranged during retention. The reorganization and rearrangement of periodontal collagen fibres seemed to be partly related to the restoration of mechanical strength of the rat molar PDL during the 8 days of retention.  (+info)

Orthodontic treatment (commonly known as braces) can be a lengthy process to re-align your teeth to a more functional and aesthetic position. Once the orthodontic devices are removed, however, the treatment isnt finished. Wearing a retainer is the final step to ensuring that the re-alignment doesnt eventually fail. Its designed to do just what its name implies - to retain the teeths new position and prevent a relapse to the old.. This can happen because of the way teeth fit into the jaw bone. The teeth are joined to the bone by the periodontal ligament, which works somewhat like a hammock: the ligaments fibers act like threads that fit into the tooth on one side and into the bone on the other, and hold the teeth in place.. As living tissue, the ligaments cell structure is dynamic and can adapt to the gentle pressure applied by an orthodontic device. However, once this pressure subsides after the device is removed muscle memory can cause the ligament to resist the new position and pull ...

Introduction: We aimed to determine whether appliance type affects changes in maximum voluntary bite force (MVBF) and the number of occlusal contacts (NOC) during retention, controlling for sex, age, and body mass index. Methods: The sample comprised 176 examinees (70 male, 106 female) aged 14 to 20 years: 30 had maxillary and mandibular Essix retainers, 30 had wrap-around retainers, and 30 had a combination of fixed mandibular canine-to-canine retainers bonded on each tooth separately (double twisted, 0.254 mm in diameter, stainless steel ligature wire) and Essix retainer in the maxillary arch; 86 with normal occlusion were not treated. MVBF and the NOC were measured immediately after removal of preadjusted edgewise appliances (Roth prescription), 6 weeks after that, and after the next 4 weeks. Results: Increases in MVBF and the NOC were demonstrated, but subjects with 2 Essix retainers showed lower values than did the others. Changes were related to type of appliance, sex, and age (P , 0.05) ...
Youve invested a lot of time and money in orthodontic treatment to improve your smile. If youre not careful, though, your teeth could actually move back to their old positions. The reason why is related to the same natural tooth-moving mechanism we use to straighten teeth in the first place.. Teeth are held in place by an elastic, fibrous tissue called the periodontal ligament lying between the teeth and the jawbone and attaching to both with tiny collagen fibers. The periodontal ligament allows for incremental tooth movement in response to pressure generated around the teeth, as when we chew (or while wearing braces).. Unfortunately, this process can work in reverse. Out of a kind of muscle memory, the teeth can revert to the older positions once theres no more pressure from the removed braces. You could eventually be right back where you started.. To avoid this, we have to employ measures to hold or retain the teeth in their new positions for some time after the braces come off. Thats ...

S. mutans was selected for analysis in the present in vitro study because it plays a major role in the development of dental caries.22,26 S. epidermidis and S. aureus were the most commonly found bacteria in the samples. The in vitro results showed that none of the three products were effective against S. mutans, S. epidermidis, or S. aureus, although Corega® showed a slight inhibitory effect against S. epidermidis. The in vitro findings of the current study supported the in vivo results, with the exception of Corega®. Although Corega® showed a score of 2 in the control group and a score of 3 in test group with the SEM test, we cannot depend on this result because this method was performed on one sample only and it may be subject to technical defect during the processing or choosing of the area of photography. A previous study22 confirmed that the results of in vivo and in vitro studies do not necessarily match. The results of trials22,27 performed on dentures in vitro as well as in vivo ...
There are three basic types of retainers available today; each works best in particular situations. The Hawley retainer is a thin, tongue-shaped piece of acrylic molded to fit your mouth, with a wire that holds your teeth in position. The Hawley retainer is simple, durable and easily removed. Its even possible to personalize it by choosing different colors and designs for the plastic arch.. Another popular style of retainer is the clear aligner-type, which looks similar to the Invisalign® tray system. These retainers are custom-made of thin, transparent plastic designed to fit precisely over your teeth. Their main advantage is that theyre invisible, with no wire to show. These retainers are also easy to remove, but they may be somewhat less durable than the Hawleys.. Finally, fixed retainers may be an option for some people, especially on the lower front teeth. As their name implies, they arent removable by the wearer - but they arent visible either. This system uses a wire which is ...
ACTIVE RETAINER THERAPY. For certain mild relapse cases, we may offer custom spring retainers designed for your specific needs. For retainer-only treatment to be effective they most be worn as close to 24 hours as possible until we achieve the desired results.. These retainers usually involve an active spring or wire designed to resolve mild crowding or spacing and are activated every 4-6 weeks until the malocclusion is corrected. The retainers are then worn for 3-4 months and then worn at nights thereafter to maintain the final results.. SPLINTS. We also offer custom splints to address problems with clenching, grinding & TMD. Splints function to alleviate sensitivity in your jaws & muscles as well as to protect the enamel of your teeth from excessive wear caused by your clenching/grinding habit over time.. These appliances can also be included in your orthodontic treatment plan to maintain the position of your teeth at the end of treatment, in lieu of a standard retainer.. Back to Overview of ...
Because teeth can continue to move throughout life, we feel that individuals who have undergone orthodontic therapy should wear retainers indefinitely. A patient should wear retainers all the time for one year following the removal of braces.. After approximately one year, the patient can wear the retainer just at night. This is to allow the wisdom teeth to develop without ruining the patients beautiful smile. Dr. Ahmed Mansour will see you every six to nine months to make recommendations on the wisdom teeth and an X-ray will be taken every one and a half years.). Once the wisdom teeth have been decided on, wear your retainer at least one night per week. This is because, as you get older, the muscles that surround your teeth will get tighter and place pressure on your teeth, causing them to move or crowd.. How to care for retainers. ...
0059] FIG. 6-3 is a perspective view of the workpiece retainer 10 according to a third modification of the first embodiment. In the third modification, the workpiece retainer 10 can be divided at the divided surface 104 formed from the top to the bottom of the workpiece retainer 10 so as to include the fitting portion 102. That is, in the third modification, a dividing direction of the workpiece retainer 10 is longitudinal. By setting the dividing direction to the longitudinal direction, the facing length WJ 21 does not need to be constant during the cutting process until the wire electrode 2 reaches the workpiece 8 (from the top to the fitting portion 102 of the divided surface 104). Accordingly, as shown in FIG. 6-3, any problem is unlikely to occur even if a gap of about several millimeters is generated on a matching surface of the divided surface 104. Because the gap between the machining fluid nozzles 80 and the workpiece retainer 10 does not change even if a gap is provided on the matching ...

An orthopedic flip-wing tissue retainer (2) comprises a flip-wing (7), tissue-retaining means (8) and a joint formed between the flip-wing (7) and the tissue-retaining means (8). The tissue retainer (2) is easily installed and used to anchor a biological tissue. The tissue retainer (2) can be used in combination with other devices to replace or repair a ligament or tendon in a joint. In particular, when used for ligament replacement, the tissue retainer (2) eliminates or at least minimizes the twisting that typically occurs during conventional surgery. In addition, the tension of the ligament graft can be precisely adjusted by using a tension-adjusting device (3 or 203) in combination with the flip-wing tissue retainer (2). The tension-adjusting device (203) can include a ball (204)-and-socket (205) joint.

After years of frequent visits to the orthodontist, patients often find that the quest for straight teeth does not end with the removal of their braces. Retainers hold teeth in place and prevent grinding. While simply wearing a retainer will keep your teeth straight, these orthodontic tools also need to be cleaned regularly because they can harbor harmful bacteria and unpleasant odor. Neglecting to clean retainers can contribute unnecessary bacteria on your teeth which could lead to problems later. However, a few simple tricks will keep retainers and teeth clean.. ...
Retainers are used to hold your teeth in their corrected position. There are two types: removable and fixed (bonded in place) retainers. We will recommend the style that we feel will maintain your correction best.. To keep your teeth in their new position, your retainers should be worn 24 hours a day for one week, then at night while you sleep. We will instruct you further when you may reduce wearing time. ALWAYS keep your retainers in your case when eating. NEVER leave them on a lunch tray, in a pocket, or wrapped in a napkin. Any of these situations may result in losing or breaking your retainers and an unnecessary expense. When brushing your teeth, be sure to brush you retainers also. (Remember plaque can also form on your retainers, so keep them clean.) Use your toothbrush, toothpaste, and cold water. Never boil or use hot water as this could damage your retainers. Your speech may be affected the first few days of wearing your retainers. Reading aloud to yourself can help you become more ...
Knowing this, it is easy to understand that when braces are removed and the teeth are subjected to natural forces, the teeth are inclined to react to the pressure and move. Such forces include tongue and lip pressure, chewing food, and nervous habits such as nail biting, pencil chewing, etc.. Does this mean that wearing braces is useless? Of course not! Eighty-five to ninety percent of the original orthodontic problems are permanently resolved with treatment. Problems involved with the biting relationships of the teeth are corrected, and the cosmetic appearance of the teeth is enhanced and returned to normal.. To help minimize the potential for tooth movement after braces are removed, we move into the retention phase of treatment. Retention is the term used to identify the time period during which the patient is wearing retainers. The advice given to every patient is to wear the upper and lower removable retainers 24 hours a day (with the exception of eating, brushing, or vigorous physical ...
An interdental toothbrush handle for holding a twisted wire brush includes a handle with a locking retainer connected thereto by a living hinge. The handle has two opposing side walls which extend perpendicularly from the handle and are adjacent to the living hinge. At least one of the walls includes a V-shaped gap for receiving the stem of a twisted wire brush. The handle also preferably has an indentation between the two opposing side walls and the locking retainer preferably includes a protrusion in communication with the indentation. A nub on the protrusion prevents the locking retainer from opening more than about 30 to 40 . The stem of a twisted wire brush is inserted into the V-shaped gap when the locking retainer is open.

I have a damaged front tooth because of an ill-fitting orthodontic retainer when I was about 16 years old. It shows up on photographs. I figure that some day Ill get the veneer that would make it less noticeable in photos. I almost did it ten years ago and decided against it for a number of reasons.. However, I smile a full-tooth smile every day. I laugh every day. And the people Im close to dont even notice that tooth until I mention it. They see the real me, which comes through very strongly above how my tooth looks.. That tooth is a reminder that things went permanently wrong when I obeyed blindly even when things didnt feel right (dont take off the retainer no matter what… and thus even when it hurt unmercifully I didnt take it off and it killed a nerve). So the flaw, if there is any, is in my teen self being a good girl and following orders even when my gut told me that something was wrong.. My Story: Young Adult Insecurity.

A surgical instrument has a shaft with a longitudinal axis, a proximal end, and a distal end. The shaft is rotatable about its longitudinal axis by user manipulation of the proximal end. A tissue retainer is positioned at the distal end and is rotatable with the shaft. The retainer has a curved portion that extends around a retainer axis, a tissue holding space within the curved portion, and an entry opening into the holding space. The retainer is configured to be received over and at least partly circumvent a target structure of a surgical field received in the holding space via the entry opening. A surgical component is positioned on a portion of the retainer laterally offset from both the retainer axis and the holding space, is rotatable with rotation of the shaft and retainer and is selectively energizeable to dissect selected tissue.

Proper oral hygiene and home care techniques are extremely important to a successful treatment in braces or Invisalign.. Caring for your Retainer. Retainers, just like your teeth, collect plaque, bacteria and food particles. You should clean your retainer every day! Keep your retainer soaking when it is not in your mouth. Use a mouthwash rinse or denture cleaning agent to freshen it up and keep it free of bacteria. Keep your retainer away from heat; the plastic can crack if it gets too dry or too hot. Try not to bend the wires; flipping your retainer in your mouth can do this.. Brushing.

Always keep your toothbrush handy, you should even be brushing at school or work after lunch. You will also need to replace your toothbrush more often, since the braces will make it wear out quicker.. Flossing with ...

Thumb Sucking Appliances. The majority of children naturally outgrow their thumb-sucking habit. However, children who continue to thumb suck after the age of five or six (especially vigorously) risk oral complications. These complications include: narrowed arches, impacted teeth, and misaligned teeth. The palatal crib appliance usually stops thumb sucking immediately.. The crib is crafted and affixed to the teeth by the pediatric dentist, almost like a barely visible set of dental braces. Preventing the thumb from reaching the roof of the mouth reduces gratification - and breaks the habit very quickly. Removable variations of the crib are also available, and can be used depending on the age of the child and his or her willingness to cooperate.. Expansion Appliances. An overbite, where the upper front teeth protrude over the lower front teeth, can be corrected with an expansion appliance, as can a crossbite. The expansion appliance is used to stretch and widen the arch, providing enough ...

Unfortunately, everyone wasnt born with a perfect smile. Many children are born with an overbite, and underbite, crowded teeth, or gaps in their teeth. This is where braces and Invisalign can help. When you take your child to the orthodontist for either of these treatments, your child will need to wear them for a year or more. Once the treatment is over, it isnt the end. Once the braces and Invisalign come off, your child will be fitted with a retainer. Not every child gets the same retainer schedule. It depends on the child and their treatment providers recommendation. Regardless of the instructions that you receive, you should make sure that your child wears their retainer as directed.

Here is my situation, I had braces for 3 years which closed a gap I had between my two front teeth (called diastema). I had them taken off like a month ago just before moving to the U.S. and I have been wearing a retainer ever since. BUT now, the diastema is opening up again. Which makes me VERY frustrated I could not enjoy my smile for than a month!!. So I called my orthodontist back home and she said that happens and that I should wait until I go back to my country in December to have an appoitment with her. What should I do? I am very upset not only because the gap is back but wearing retainers makes it very hard for me to speak english!!. Should I go to an orthodontist here ? You think other kinds of retainers might close the gap??? Help!
