To obtain an effective and compliance-free molar distalization without an anchorage loss, we designed the bone-anchored pendulum appliance (BAPA). The aim of this study was to evaluate the stability of the anchoring screw, distalization of the maxillary molars, and the movement of teeth anterior to maxillary first molars. The study group comprised 10(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this retrospective study was to compare the dentoalveolar and skeletal effects obtained with 2 types of pendulum appliance with different anchorage designs: bone-anchored pendulum appliance (BAPA) and conventional pendulum appliance (CPA). METHODS The sample consisted of 39 patients (25 girls, 14 boys) with Angle Class II molar(More)
OBJECTIVE To test the hypotheses that (1) there is no significant difference between the effects of two burs on the surface roughness of enamel after orthodontic debonding, and (2) there is no difference between resin removal times of the two burs. MATERIALS AND METHODS The crowns of 20 premolars were embedded in acrylic blocks, and the buccal surfaces(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the level of osteoprotegerin (OPG) in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) during tooth movement. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twelve patients (13-17 years of age) requiring canine distalization participated in the study. GCF sampling was done at baseline, 1 hour, 24 hours, 168 hours, 1 month, and 3 months from the distal sites of the test(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the accuracy of a computer-assisted imaging system in predicting the soft tissue response following orthognathic surgery. METHODS The study sample consisted of 11 adult patients with a mean age of 23.5 years. The preoperative and postoperative lateral cephalograms were obtained after orthodontic(More)
Maxillonasal dysplasia (Binder’s syndrome) is a congenital malformation characterized by an extremely flat and retruded nose. This report describes an 18-year-old woman with maxillonasal dysplasia (Binder’s syndrome). The septal deficiencies and maxillary retrusion of the patient were corrected by using an L-shaped implant and a crescent-shaped high-density(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the soft tissue changes associated with the pendulum appliance that was supported with a K-loop buccally and to compare these treatment changes with a cervical headgear group. MATERIALS AND METHODS The records of 30 patients having skeletal Class I, dental Class II malocclusions were divided to two groups. Group 1 consisted of 7(More)
Multipurpose titanium miniplates were placed on the lateral nasal wall of the maxilla as anchorage for face mask protraction in an 11-year-old girl presenting with severe maxillary hypoplasia and hypodontia. Applying orthopedic forces directly to the maxilla resulted in an eight mm maxillary advancement. Intraosseous titanium screws were also placed on the(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose of this pilot study was to investigate the effects of facemask treatment with a rigid skeletal anchor. METHODS Miniplates were placed on the lateral nasal wall of the maxilla in 6 subjects (mean age, 11.8 +/- 1.1 years). No dental tissue was incorporated into the anchorage system. Lateral cephalograms of each patient were(More)
Maxillomandibular harmony constitutes a major component of the ideal facial aesthetics. Improvement of facial aesthetics is one of the main reasons that patients request surgical correction of dentofacial deformities. Orthognathic surgery enables the correction of dentofacial skeletal or occlusal discrepancies. The need for this type of surgery has(More)
