INTRODUCTION The purpose of this study was to compare the occlusal stability of Class II malocclusion treatment with and without extraction of 2 maxillary premolars. METHODS A sample of 59 records from patients with complete Class II malocclusion was used. This sample was divided into 2 groups with the following characteristics: group 1, comprising 29(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to compare the occlusal stability of class II subdivision malocclusion treatment with 3 and 4 first premolar extractions. A sample of 156 dental casts from 52 patients with class II subdivision malocclusion was divided into two groups according to the extraction protocol. Group 1 comprised 24 patients treated with 3(More)
AIM To cephalometrically compare the overjet, overbite, and molar and canine relationship stability of Class II malocclusion treatment with and without maxillary premolar extractions. METHOD Two groups of 30 patients each with pre- and posttreatment matching characteristics and satisfactory finishing were used. Group 1 consisted of 30 patients treated(More)
This case report describes the treatment of a patient with a Class II Division 1 subdivision right malocclusion with 8 congenitally missing teeth, incompetent lips, and incisor protrusion. The treatment plan included extractions and space closure with retraction of the anterior teeth; symmetric mechanics were used in the mandibular arch and asymmetric(More)
OBJECTIVES The accuracy and reliability of plaster models and digital models acquired with two different surface laser scanners were tested by means of three methods: measurement with calipers, digital measurement with proper software and superimposition of the digital models. METHODS Thirty plaster models with permanent dentition that met the inclusion(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to compare the accuracy of printed models from intraoral scans with different designs of model bases, using 2 types of 3-dimensional printing techniques. METHODS Three types of model base design were created: regular base, horseshoe-shaped base, and horseshoe-shaped base with a bar connecting the posterior region.(More)
A plaster dental model is a patient’s traditional three-dimensional (3D) record. If the dental crowns from a plaster model are separated and positioned in wax, this setup of the crowns can be used to simulate orthodontic treatment. The traditional way to make this dental setup requires significant time by the orthodontist and in the orthodontic lab. New(More)
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the accuracy and reproducibility of measurements made on digital models created using an intraoral color scanner compared to measurements on dental plaster models. This study included impressions of 28 volunteers. Alginate impressions were used to make plaster models, and each volunteers’ dentition was(More)
This study compared the accuracy of plaster models from alginate impressions and printed models from intraoral scanning. A total of 28 volunteers were selected and alginate impressions and intraoral scans were used to make plaster models and digital models of their dentition, respectively. The digital models were printed using a stereolithographic (SLA) 3D(More)
INTRODUCTION The objective of this study was to evaluate the accuracy and reliability of measurements on digital models obtained by scanning impressions 5, 10, and 15 days after they were made from 2 soft putty polyvinylsiloxane (PVS) materials. METHODS Thirty volunteers were selected for making impressions of their dentitions with alginate to create a(More)
