Our aim was to evaluate the isolated effects of cheiloplasty and palatoplasty on dentofacial morphology. Ninety-three lateral cephalograms of white male adult patients with complete unilateral cleft lip and palate were analyzed in this study. The sample was divided into three groups according to the surgical treatment received: (1) nonoperated group (NO)-35(More)
Using a sample of 204 caucasian adults of both sexes, with complete unilateral cleft lip and alveolus, isolated cleft palate and complete unilateral cleft lip, alveolus and palate, the influence of surgery on maxillary morphology and spatial position for the three main types of cleft lip and/or palate were evaluated. 113 cleft patients operated on at(More)
A total of 229 adult white patients with cleft lip or palate were evaluated, through cephalometric radiographs, to determine cleft-type influence on mandibular structure and spatial position. The sample includes adult patients with unilateral complete cleft lip and alveolus (n = 50), complete cleft lip and palate (n = 118), and isolated cleft palate (n =(More)
AIM To investigate the spontaneous tooth position changes after unilateral extraction of mandibular first molars and the influence on third molar position. METHODS Panoramic radiographs of 111 individuals (mean age 19 years 8 months) in whom one mandibular first molar was extracted at least 5 years prior. Comparison of all measurements of the control and(More)
Lateral cephalometric films of operated (Op) and non-operated (Nop) patients with cleft lip and alveolus, cleft lip and palate or cleft palate only, were compared to determine whether the shape or position of the mandible is affected by lip and/or palate surgery. The sample included 204 adult cleft patients, Caucasians of both sexes with one of the(More)
AIM To assess the long-term stability of orthodontic treatment and some factors associated to posttreatment changes. METHODS Six hundred twenty-seven dental casts of 209 patients were examined with the PAR Index at pretreatment (T1), end of treatment (T2), and at long-term follow-up (T3, mean 8.5 years posttreatment). Friedman test and multiple regression(More)
In view of the lack of data as to the prevalence of dental caries among typical amazonian populations, the authors carried out an epidemiological study of 103 schoolchildren from Sirituba Island, Abaetetuba, Pará, Brazil. The mean values found for DMFT and deft were 6.5 and 5.4 respectively. Although the region is very primitive, this high prevalence may be(More)
