PURPOSE Long-term stability of severe class III is rarely evaluated in the literature. We present our findings with 12 patients who underwent surgery from June 1995 to December 1997 and analyze cephalometric superpositions. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twelve operated patients were reviewed to analyze long-term results (follow-up 3 years 8 months). The sex ratio(More)
Primary failure of eruption is a rare condition marked by non-eruption of the posterior teeth due to mutation of a gene responsible for tooth eruption. Today, this anomaly can be detected early using innovative 3D-imaging techniques. Genetic and histologic testing will confirm the diagnosis and unfavorable prognosis. Alveolar growth must be followed in(More)
