Stereolithographic (medical rapid prototyping) biomodeling allows three-dimensional computed tomography to be used to generate solid plastic replicas of anatomic structures. Reports in the literature suggest that such biomodels may have a use in maxillofacial surgery, craniofacial surgery, orthopedics, neurosurgery, otology, vascular, and nasal research. A(More)
For better evaluation of long-term results of orthognathic surgery, movements of osteotomized maxillary and mandibular segments should be documented both in x-, y-, and z-axes and in terms of kind of movement (either linear or rotational movements). Lateral cephalometric, anteroposterior cephalometric, and submentovertex radiographs of 14 patients, treated(More)
While closing the large bilateral spaces caused by either the extraction of molar teeth or the congenitally absence of premolar in the lower arch, the important point is to move the teeth bodily and avoid tipping as much as possible. For this purpose an alternative orthodontic treatment approach can be the use of Lingual Functional Appliance which mesially(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of apical root resorption in maxillary incisors during the initial stages of active orthodontic treatment and to test the hypothesis that root resorption increases with the progress of the treatment. METHODS The study sample consisted of 80 teeth of 20 patients (14 female, 6 male) with a(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of intrusion of the maxillary posterior teeth with zygomatic anchorage on the dentofacial system, on electromyographic (EMG) activity of the masticatory muscles, and on vibration of the temporomandibular joint. The study sample consisted of 19 subjects (13 females, 6 males) with a mean age of 17.7 years.(More)
This case report presents the treatment of a 14-year-and-8-month-old boy with Class II division 2 mandibular retrusion, severe deep bite, and concave profile. The Forsus fatigue resistance device (FRD) was effective in correcting both skeletal and dental parameters. At 5-year posttreatment follow-up, the teeth were well aligned and the occlusion was stable.(More)
A case report of a patient who had lost her maxillary permanent left central incisor, left cuspid and left first premolar teeth due to a cyst operation, is presented. The maxillary permanent left lateral incisor was in horizontal position high in the vestibule. She was treated with removable and fixed orthodontic appliances. The lateral incisor was(More)
PURPOSE To investigate 1) the changes in pharyngeal airway sizes associated with maxillary distraction osteogenesis and 2) the correlations between maxillary skeletal variables and the pharyngeal airway in adult patients with cleft lip and palate. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study was carried out in 14 adult subjects with cleft lip and palate. Predistraction(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate skeletal and dental stability in adult cleft lip and palate patients treated with a rigid external distraction system at the end of distraction and during the postdistraction period. PATIENTS AND METHODS Lateral cephalograms of 7 patients were obtained before distraction, at the end of distraction, and during the postdistraction(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the reliability of the reference distances used for photogrammetric assessment. MATERIALS AND METHODS The sample consisted of 100 subjects with mean ages of 22.97 +/- 2.98 years. Five lateral and four frontal parameters were measured directly on the subjects' faces. For photogrammetric assessment, two reference distances for the(More)
