OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate three-dimensional molar displacement after distalization via miniscrews and a horizontal modification of the trans-palatal-arch (TPA). METHODS The subjects in this clinical trial were 26 Class II patients. After the preparation of a complete set of diagnostic records, miniscrews were inserted between the(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aimed to assess the effect of head position on the accuracy of transverse measurements of the maxillofacial region on cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) and conventional posterior-anterior (PA) cephalograms. The second objective of this study was to find skull positions with the greatest and smallest effect on transverse measurements(More)
Article Incorrect patient positioning and the resultant image distortion occur in many radiographic examinations. This study aimed to assess the effect of tilting, rotation and tipping of the head on the accuracy of maxillofacial transverse measurements made on cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans. The CBCT scans were obtained in central position of(More)
OBJECTIVES After maxillary expansion, a long period of retention is necessary to prevent early relapse. Therefore, it is beneficial to accelerate bone formation in the expanding midpalatal suture to reduce relapse. This study was designed to evaluate the effect of dietary vitamin C on osteogenesis of rat midpalatal suture during expansion. MATERIALS AND(More)
AIM This study aims at examining the difficulty in performing forced eruption of impacted maxillary canines, using CBCT information and according to experienced orthodontist's opinion. The second aim was to find the most important factors related to this decision. METHODS Based on a careful literature review on impacted maxillary canines, ten main factors(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was designed to evaluate the effect of argon laser irradiation on development and progress of enamel demineralization around orthodontic brackets. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty caries-free, intact human premolars were randomly assigned to one of the following five equal groups: Groups 1 (control) and 2: The brackets were bonded using(More)
