INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to use low-dose coronal computed tomography (CT) scans to evaluate the treatment and postretention effects of rapid maxillary expansion (RME) on the maxillary central incisors, midpalatal suture, and nasal cavity. METHODS Multi-slice coronal CT scans of 17 subjects (7 boys, 10 girls; mean age, 11.2 years) were taken(More)
The present paper emphasizes the importance of early diagnosis of retarded eruption because of trauma and the plan for the surgical management of impacted teeth. The permanent incisor was localized horizontally on the nasal spine and the roots seemed to be in a retarded stage of formation beside of contralateral tooth. The treatment plan consisted in the(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate pharyngeal size differences between pre- and posttrials of a Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD), using a computed tomography (CT),in the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) adult patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighteen patients with mild to moderate OSA (mean Apnea/Hypopnea Index, AHI, of 16.7)(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the influence of two different activation protocols on the timing and intensity of pain during rapid maxillary expansion (RME). MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 112 prepubertal patients (54 males and 58 females, mean age 11.00 ± 1.80 years) with constricted maxillary arches underwent RME with two different activation protocols(More)

OBJECTIVE To apply both conventional cephalometric analysis and morphometric analysis (thin-plate spline analysis) to posteroanterior (PA) cephalograms to test the hypothesis that the dentoskeletal features of subjects with anterior open bite in the mixed dentition are no different from those of normal controls. MATERIALS AND METHODS A group of 22 white(More)
AIM To evaluate the long term (48 months) therapeutic efficacy of a soft monobloc mandibular advancement device in adult patients with mild or moderate obstructive sleep apnea. METHODS The study population comprised 28 patients (6 female and 22 male, mean age 52.2 ± 6.8 years) affected by obstructive sleep apnea. After a baseline medical and somnographic(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY To evaluate the intersession reliability of a posturo-stabilometric examination. METHODS Single blind clinical trial conducted in two sessions over two weeks. 44 healthy volunteers free from postural and temporomandibular disorders. All the subjects complied with the criteria for completing the study. All the subjects underwent two(More)
