This study was performed to establish age- and gender-specific cephalometric normative data for a Swedish population. The material comprised 469 lateral cephalograms from two groups of subjects of Swedish origin between 5 and 31 years of age. All subjects (males and females) were diagnosed as 'normal' according to specified criteria and with no history of(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES To evaluate the long-term effects on apneas and sleep and the tolerability of a mandibular advancement device in patients with obstructive sleep apnea. DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING Department of Respiratory Medicine, University Hospital, Umeå, Sweden. PATIENTS Thirty-three consecutively treated patients. INTERVENTIONS(More)
The aims of this study were to investigate possible orthodontic side-effects following the use of mandibular advancement devices (MAD) in adults with snoring and sleep apnoea. A second objective was to analyse the effect of the appliance design. Seventy-five patients treated with MAD and 17 reference patients were studied at follow-up after 2.5 +/- 0.5(More)
Glass ionomer cement (GIC) has been suggested as an alternative to acrylic resin in bracket bonding because of its fluoride release. The aim of this clinical trial was to evaluate further the suitability of GIC as a bonding adhesive compared with an acrylic resin with regard to frequency of bracket failure, fracture modes and clean-up time after debonding.(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the content of nickel in the saliva and dental biofilm in young patients with and without orthodontic appliances. The possible influence of a dietary intake of nickel on recorded nickel levels was examined. Nickel content in unstimulated whole saliva and in dental plaque of 24 boys and girls (mean age 14.8 years) with(More)
The aim of this clinical study was to test the benefit from using glass ionomer cement (GIC) instead of a conventional diacrylate in bracket bonding for the prevention of white spot formation. Before treatment 7.2 per cent of all examined surfaces (n = 222) were classified as having white spots. No additional fluoride treatment other than fluoride(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of a mandibular advancement device in patients with supine-dependent sleep apnea and patients with non-supine-dependent sleep apnea. DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING Department of Respiratory Medicine, University Hospital, Umeå, Sweden. PATIENTS Twenty-six patients with obstructive sleep apnea. INTERVENTION(More)
The aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence of life-style practices in adolescents and their association with nickel allergy. Upper secondary school pupils (n = 4,376; 15-23 years) were patch-tested for nickel aller-gy, follow-ing completion of a questionnaire (answered by 6,095). Almost 86% girls and 21% of boys reported piercing. More girls (6%)(More)
INTRODUCTION White spots (WS) related to orthodontic treatment are severe cariologic and cosmetic complications, but they are shown to be partially reduced by remineralization or abrasion in short-term follow-ups. In this prospective study, we quantitatively analyzed changes in WS in general and in treatment-related white spot lesions (WSL) during(More)
