A longitudinal retrospective study using thin-plate spline analysis was used to investigate skeletal Class III etiology in Japanese female adolescents. Headfilms of 40 subjects were chosen from the archives of the Orthodontic department at Niigata University Dental Hospital, and were traced at IIIB and IVA Hellman dental ages. Twenty-eight homologous(More)
The present study sought to clarify the relationship between antegonial and ramus notch depths and condylar bone change, and analyse the effects of such change on craniofacial structure. The study sample was of 28 pre-orthodontic patients with signs and symptoms of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, who underwent helical computed tomography to(More)
Skeletal stability and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) signs and symptoms were analyzed in 23 patients in whom mandibular protrusion and mandibular deviation had been corrected using bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy (BSSRO group, n = 10) and unilateral SSRO and intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy (USSRO+IVRO group, n = 13). Miniplate fixation was used(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the relationships between occlusal curvature (OC) and frontal craniofacial morphology in patients with and without temporomandibular disorders (TMD), using frontal cephalograms and a sophisticated measuring device (XYZAX S400A). Thirty-seven female orthodontic patients (mean age 24.0 years) were divided into a TMD(More)
This study was undertaken to evaluate the relationship between bilateral condylar bone change (BCBC) and mandibular morphology. Thirty Japanese women with BCBC as diagnosed from computed tomographic scans were compared to 2 control groups: 26 Class I and 25 Class II Japanese women. All cephalograms were traced and scanned, and 14 homologous landmarks were(More)
