The purpose of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of malocclusion and to assess the need for orthodontic treatment among 6-10 year old Turkish primary school children. The Treatment Priority Index (TPI) was used to record and measure the malocclusions. The findings were that 40.38 per cent of the observed population showed normal occlusion, 21.85 per(More)
FR III is a functional regulator appliance developed by Professor Rolf Frankel. This appliance is used in the treatment of Class III malocclusions. Optimum treatment results can be achieved when the appliance is used in the early mixed dentition period. The restricting effect of the buccinator and orbicularis oris muscles on maxillary skeletal development(More)
This study was conducted to evaluate Ricketts' long-range growth prediction in Turkish children. Cephalometric analysis was conducted at baseline and 7 years for 40 children (20 girls, 20 boys) who received no orthodontic treatment. Ricketts' long-range prediction was performed from baseline cephalograms and compared with actual growth 7 years later.(More)
The first permanent molars are the mo frequently extracted teeth due to caries. Early loss of these teeth which are known as "the ke of the occlusion" may lead to rotations, migrations, and elongations of the other teeth in the dental arches, and finally may cause occlusal disorders. This research is conducted on the patient whose first permanent molars(More)
The lower incisor positions have an important role in obtaining optimum occlusion and esthetics with orthodontic therapy. The aim of this study is to evaluate in longterm, the lower incisor positions of class I anterior crowding cases which were treated with Begg and Edge wise techniques. For this purpose lateral cephalometric radiographs of 20 Edge wise(More)
The maxillary lateral incisors are the most frequently missing teeth after the third molars. The cases with congenitally missing lateral incisors are treated either by orthodontically closing the spaces or by space regaining for prosthetic restorations. Malocclusion is the most effective factor for selecting the treatment method. Besides the characteristics(More)
The cleft lip and palate cases are the most frequently seen congenital deformities. Retardation of the maxillary development and collapse are the most significant characteristics in these cases. It is aimed to correct the functions like mastication, deglutition and speech which were disturbed due to anatomic deficiency and to obtain an acceptable occlusion(More)
In this article the periodontal status of the 30 patients which were treated with Edgewise mechanics, by extraction of four first bicuspids is evaluated approximately 5 years later the active treatment. Comparison of the pocket depths between the teeth moved into extraction areas and the other teeth, is made. And also the pocket depths of the parallel and(More)
