By use of the implant method the growth of the maxilla was analysed from profile and frontal (postero-anterior) cephalometric radiographs in nine boys with normal primary occlusion who were followed annually up to adult age without receiving any orthodontic treatment. The proportion of sutural and appositional growth in height was determined from profile radiographs with reference to implants in the infrazygomatic crest. The sutural lowering of the maxillary corpus was, on average, about twice…

The anatomic basis for palatal implants in orthodontics.
TLDR
It is illustrated that complete ossification of the suture palatina mediana (SPM) is rare before the age of 23 years and the use of palatal implants should be considered, because the anterior SPM is less often ossified than the posterior region.

Effects of a modified maxillary orthopaedic splint: a cephalometric evaluation.
TLDR
It was revealed that the splint had both orthopaedic and orthodontic effects on the growth pattern of the dentoskeletal structures, and there seemed to exist a relationship between the direction of total mandibular and maxillary rotations.

Retrospective study of maxilla growth in a Spanish population sample.
TLDR
Sagittal growth of the maxilla is constant from the age of 8 to 18 years with an average increase of 0.2 mm/year, and vertical growth, as well as general maxillary growth, is greater in the prepubescent group.
A Comparison of Anatomical and Metallic Implant Methods
TLDR
Testing the hypothesis that there is no difference between the information produced by superimposition of serial lateral headfilms on anatomical structures and that produced by su- perimposition on metallic implants according to the protocols of Bjork found erroneous information concerning patterns of bone growth and remodeling can be obtained if convenient, but biologically incorrect superim position protocols are used.

TLDR
The results seem to indicate that adjustment of dental arch dimensions in disproportionate jaw bases may be due more to conductible compensatory dental arch growth than to forcibly induced movements of jaw segments.

TLDR
It is concluded that early maxillary impaction does not normalize or inhibit the vertical maxillary excess growth pattern; mandibular modeling and condylar growth undergo adaptive changes in response to repositioning.

The transverse growth of the maxillary zygomatic process was studied radiographically by means of the metallic implant method and the shape of distance and velocity curves representing transversegrowth in the median suture was similar to theshape of the curve representing the growth in body height, both showing a distinct puberal growth maximum.
