MATERIAL AND METHOD This(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop and test assessor agreement using a new cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) examination method for evaluating the outcome of alveolar bone grafts in cleft lip and palate patients. MATERIAL AND METHOD Twenty patients with complete cleft lip and cleft palate who had undergone alveolar bone grafting with CBCT follow-up 3-6 months(More)
BACKGROUND Craniofacial microsomia (CFM) is a complex congenital condition and includes a spectrum of malformations primarily involving structures derived from the first and second branchial arches.

This article aimed to present a case of 22 year-old Thai female with cleft lip and palate who had malocclusion developed from dental problems, skeletal disharmony and unrepaired alveolar cleft. The treatment was orthodontic combined with one-stage surgical correction which corrected skeletal discrepancy and alveolar cleft in single operation. After(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine correlations between cervical vertebral maturation stages (CVMs) and dental development stages, and cervical vertebral maturation (CVM) stage 6 and completion of root formation of mandibular third molar in Thai cleft patients. MATERIAL AND METHOD Lateral cephalograms of 366 cleft subjects aged 7-9 years were assessed for CVMs using(More)
Orthodontic treatment for a 10-years-old girl, with repaired bilateral cleft lip and left incomplete unilateral alveolar cleft, was performed by moving her right maxillary central incisor across the midline to replace her congenital missing central incisor and then moving the right lateral incisor toward the midline to act as a new central incisor.

The purpose of this article was to present a modified protocol and devices of presurgical nasoalveolar molding techniques to improve deformity of lip, nose and alveolus at Department of Orthodontic, Khon Kaen University (KKU). This new protocol was developed in order to address nasal problems as early as possible with a new extra-oral type of nasal molding(More)
Impaction of the mandibular second molar is relatively rare but when it occurs it may cause a clinical problem for orthodontist and oral surgeon. There are various treatment options to manage this condition depending on the degree of second molar inclination, the position of third molars, and the desired type of tooth movement.
