In skeletal Class III patients, the sagittal position of the mandible is more anterior than the maxilla when related to the anterior cranial base. This can be the result of a retrognathic maxilla, a prognathic mandible, or a combination of the two. Patients present with an Angle Class III molar relationship, and have a negative overjet or edge-to-edge occlusion. Mild skeletal Class III malocclusions (when the patient is fully grown) can be treated with extractions and fixed appliances as a camouflage treatment. More severe skeletal Class III patients will need combined orthodontic and orthognathic surgical treatment to achieve a satisfying occlusal and aesthetic result. The first surgical correction of malocclusion was described by Hullihen in 1849. However, it was not until the beginning of the 1950s that orthognathic surgery became a true specialty. During these 100 years, several osteotomy designs to reduce mandibular prognathism were suggested. Today, the two most commonly used surgical ...
Patients with skeletal class III malocclusions commonly show anterior crossbite, dental compensation, and class III canine and molar relationships, with resulting difficulties in mastication. Depending on the severity, orthodontic camouflage treatment can be limited and orthognathic surgery is performed to enhance facial aesthetics and function. Most studies have focused on postsurgical morphological changes, not functional changes, because it is difficult to investigate quantitative changes in masticatory function after surgery. With regard to functional parameters, the measurement of bite force and occlusal contact area with thin pressure-sensitive sheets has been used widely and is reported to represent the occlusal condition quite accurately. According to previous studies, patients requiring mandibular setback surgery have significantly lower bite forces and smaller contact areas than individuals with normal occlusion ; these parameters decrease further during presurgical orthodontic ...

The best resource I have seen in all these years is an excellent article written by Dr. Nancy Klimas, published in 2007 in Current Rheumatology Reports, that details all of the known abnormalities in ME/CFS patients immune systems and how these lead to dysfunction in the endocrine and nervous systems. The paper contains dozens and dozens of references to scientific research studies that document these abnormalities. Although much of the article is beyond my understanding, it is an excellent paper to print and hand out to doctors. I especially like to give this article to doctors who dont understand ME/CFS or dont believe it is real because it provides lots and lots of hard scientific facts on the physiological basis of ME/CFS. I think this one article alone can change the minds of skeptical medical professionals! You can look at an abstract of the article online or download a pdf file of the entire article (its 6 pages long ...

Occlusion-Confusion, most of the dentist feel this way. Occlusion is one of the most important part of dentistry but also the most controversy. The balance and the restore of function of the stomatognathic system is often an everyday challenge during most dental treatments. Therefore it is essential to register and maintain the orthopedic stability of the stomatognathic system during the treatment and determine the musculoskeletal stable position during the dental procedures. In this lecture some common clinical problems that the dentist often has to deal with in the everyday practice will be presented and the treatment sequence to maintain the stomatognathic system stability will be presented. ...

Abstract Objective: A study was made of the influence of breastfeeding and bottle feeding on development of the dental arches and occlusion in an infant population. Subjects and Methods: In total, 298 infants (163 girls and 135 boys) were selected from a series of 1,643 preschool children in Seville, Spain, evaluating the type of feeding received after birth (breastfeeding only or bottle feeding only), the duration of such feeding, and its influence upon the parameters that define occlusion of the dental arches. The study comprised a full exploration of the stomatognathic system of the infants and a questionnaire for the parents. SPSS Statistical Package software (SPSS, Inc., Chicago, IL) was used to analyze the results. Results: In total, 109 children were exclusively breastfed (36.6%) for an average of 6.8±5.8 months, whereas 189 children were exclusively bottle fed (63.4%) for an average of 17.99±11.5 months. On comparing the occlusal parameters of the two groups, the most beneficial ...

Introduction: Neuromuscular Dentistry remains an enigma to many dentists who do not understand the purpose of electrodes, TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation), computers and how this could improve the care of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders (TMD). This has led to confusion in the field of TMD care and with the term Neuromuscular Dentistry. There are several basic premises that underlie Neuromuscular Dentistry.. Stomatognathic Muscles: The first premise is that the stomatognathic muscles are the primary determinate of the mandibles position during all jaw functions (when the teeth are not in occlusion) and that rest position is one of the most important positions in dentistry.. Occlusion: The second premise is that occlusion is important in neuromuscular dentistry as a resetting mechanism of the trigeminal nervous systems control of the stomatognathic muscles.. Swallowing: During a healthy swallow the teeth will move freely without interference into full occlusion ...

An essential distinction exists between the terms orthodontics and dental orthopaedics. They represent a fundamental variance in approach to the correction of dentofacial abnormalities.. By definition, orthodontics treatment aims to correct the dental irregularity. The alternative term dental orthopaedics was suggested by the late Sir Norman Bennett, and although this has a wider definition than orthodontics, it still does not convey the objective of improving facial development.. The broader description of dentofacial orthopaedics conveys the concept that treatment aims to improve not only dental and orthopaedic relationships in the stomatognathic system but also facial balance. The adoption of a wider definition has the advantage of extending the horizons of the profession as well as educating the public to appreciate the benefits of dentofacial therapy in more comprehensive aesthetic terms.. A fundamental question that we must address in diagnosis is: Does this patient require ...

An electrophysiological study (EP study) is an invasive procedure that tests the hearts electrical system. The electrical system of the heart generates the heart beat.. During an EP study, a small, plastic catheter (tube) is inserted through a vein in the groin (or neck, in some cases) and is threaded into the heart, using a special type of X-ray, called fluoroscopy, to guide the catheter. Once in the heart, electrical signals are sent through the catheter to the heart tissue to evaluate the electrical conduction system contained within the heart muscle tissue.. There are several ways in which EP studies may be performed to assist in diagnosing electrical conduction system abnormalities of the heart. For example, a dysrhythmia/arrhythmia (an abnormal rhythm) may be deliberately stimulated by a doctor during the EP study so that the underlying abnormal electrical circuitry can be identified. Likewise, in order to evaluate the effectiveness of an antiarrythmic medication, an attempt may be made ...

OKCs are relatively common developmental odontogenic cysts and account for 10-12% of all jaw cysts (3, 5). OKCs usually occur in the second and the third decades of life. Most studies reveal a slight male predominance (1.3:1). Approximately three quarters of all OKCs occur in the body of the mandible, most commonly in the molar region and vertical ramus (3, 5). An OKC usually occurs as a single lesion. Multiple lesions are associated with the nevoid basal cell syndrome (Gorlin-Goltz syndrome) (1). In contrast with other odontogenic cysts, OKCs have a high recurrence rate, reportedly ranging from 13% to 60% (2-7). In approximately 50% of patients, the lesion is asymptomatic. In others, pain, swelling, expansion, drainage, and bone perforation are reported (2, 5).. At histopathologic examination, an OKC has a fibrous wall lined by epithelium with a thin layer of stratified squamous epithelium. This epithelium has a basal layer six to eight cells thick and a lining of flattened keratotic epithelial ...

Doctors-naturopathic or otherwise-practicing in the Northeast will tell you that Lyme disease is an epidemic illness affecting large parts of their practices. Fewer than fifty percent of people who acquire Lyme disease dont remember being bit by a tick and wont actually manifest the bulls-eye rash commonly associated with Lyme. These patients wont realize that theyve been infected by the spiral-shaped bacteria called Borrelia burdorferi until they start manifesting other clinical signs and symptoms of Lyme that include fatigue, visions changes, memory changes, mood swings, nervous system abnormalities and joint inflammation. In fact, the first outbreak of Lyme in 1975 in Lyme, CT was actually diagnosed based on what, at that time, was considered a bizarre outbreak of arthritis. When 11-year old Samanthas mother Anne checked her in at Dr. Ginger Nashs office, she had telltale signs of Lyme such as joint pain, headache and stomach upset after eating. But she had also been manifesting some of ...

NEUROMUSCULAR DENTISTRY (originally published in the American Equilibration Society magazine). Ira L Shapira DDS, DABDSM, DAAPM, FICCMO. Neuromuscular Dentistry remains an enigma to many dentists who do not understand the purposes of the electrodes, the TENS, the computers and more. It has unfairly become a target of poor and misleading definitions by doctors who do not understand its basic principles.. There are several basic premises that underlie Neuromuscular Dentistry. The first premise is that the stomatognathic muscles are the primary determinate of the mandibles position during all jaw functions (when the teeth are not in occlusion) and that rest position is one of the most important positions in dentistry. Rest position is a maxillary to mandibular jaw relation where the teeth are not in occlusion but are prepared to occlude. In Neuromuscular Dentistry Rest is a position of bilaterally equal and low muscle tonicity from which the mandible moves into full occlusion with minimal muscle ...
