Maturation indicators and the pubertal growth spurt.
TLDR
Dental development in relation to the pubertal growth was more advanced in boys than in girls, but the individual variation was great in both sexes, and skeletal development at the beginning and peak was moreAdvanced in girls than in boys, whereas at the end of the puberal growth spurt the skeletal development was moreadvanced in boys.

The impact of malocclusion/orthodontic treatment need on the quality of life. A systematic review.
TLDR
There is an association (albeit modest) between malocclusion/orthodontic treatment need and QoL, and there is a need for further studies of their relationship, particularly studies that employ standardized assessment methods so that outcomes are uniform and thus amenable to meta-analysis. Expand
Treatment response to maxillary expansion and protraction.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that significant overjet and overbite corrections can be obtained with 6 months of maxillary protraction in combination with a fixed expansion appliance. Expand
Dental maturity as an indicator of chronological age: the accuracy and precision of three methods.
TLDR
Of the methods tested, the one proposed by Demirjian et al . Expand
Skeletal stages of the hand and wrist as indicators of the pubertal growth spurt.
TLDR
The analysis of the relationship in time between the growth events and the skeletal stages showed that these stages can be used to indicate which period of adolescent growth an individual has reached. Expand
Cephalometric and occlusal changes following maxillary expansion and protraction.
TLDR
Stability of orthopaedic treatment of Class III malocclusions directed at the maxilla is indicated, despite some relapse, a net improvement in maxillomandibular relationship and a positive overjet was maintained in 18 out of 20 patients at the end of the follow-up period. Expand
The impact of malocclusion and its treatment on quality of life: a literature review.
TLDR
There is a need for a more comprehensive and rigorous assessment of the impact of malocclusion and its treatment on QoL, employing standardized, valid and reliable data collection instruments. Expand
Changes in oral health-related quality of life during fixed orthodontic appliance therapy.
TLDR
Compared with pretreatment, a patient's OHRQoL is frequently worse during treatment, although it is better in some aspects (emotional well-being); the period of greatest change in OHRZoL occurs during the first month of treatment. Expand
Changes in oral health-related quality of life during fixed orthodontic appliance therapy: an 18-month prospective longitudinal study.
TLDR
Investigation of changes in oral health related quality of life among adults during fixed orthodontic appliance therapy found the greatest deterioration in OHRQoL occurs in the early phase of treatment and with ongoing treatment, the detrimental effects to OHRZoL are reduced. Expand
Functional appliance therapy accelerates and enhances condylar growth.
TLDR
Results showed that functional appliance therapy accelerates and enhances condylar growth by accelerating the differentiation of mesenchymal cells into chondrocytes, leading to an earlier formation and increase in amount of cartilage matrix. Expand
