References in the endodontic literature specifically warn that orthodontic treatment may initiate the formation of secondary dentin deposition within a tooth to the extent of obstructing the entire root canal. Comparison of forty-six orthodontically treated patients with a control group of age- and sex-matched patients who had not undergone orthodontic(More)
Class II, Division 2 malocclusions show several common characteristics. One of the features is the presence of a deep overbite ("deckbiss"), which can be the result of an excessive eruption of the maxillary central incisors. This study tested the theory that the deep overbite, together with the apparent entrapment of the mandible, may be partly due to the(More)
A case history is presented of a 10-year-old patient, who accidentally injured her maxillary central incisor. The fracture of the crown extended 2 mm below the crest of the alveolar bone. After a pulpotomy was done as a temporary measure, orthodontic appliances were placed by bonding brackets on the maxillary anterior teeth and fitting a sectional arch wire(More)
Maintenance of arch dimensions during treatment and retention is essential for the stability of orthodontic results. This study compared ten essential measurements between posttreatment models and three different tooth positioners. Two custom-made positioners and one prefabricated positioner were evaluated. The material for this study consisted of models of(More)
We have studied nasopharyngeal adenoids on standardized cephalometric radiograms of 25 children in each season. While individual subjects showed changes ranging from 1-17% throughout the year, a synchronized circannual rhythm could be described for the girls only. Similar changes were observed in boys, although a synchronized group rhythm could not be(More)
