These two cases have been chosen to illustrate the very considerable potential for change once the cranial lesions have been identified and their correction is planned as part of treatment.

The ALF (Advanced Lightwire Functional Appliance) creating facial beauty and balance.
  • Edwin Delz
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • International journal of orthodontics
  • 2009
TLDR
The use of the Advanced Lightwire Functional (ALF) appliance for adult orthopedic treatment will be shown and the appliance construction, application, rational, indications for use, and the results of adding this appliance to an adult treatment regimen will be explored. Expand
Cranial Strains and Malocclusion
TLDR
The cranial, facial and dental sequelae accompanying the strain known as hyperflexion and hyperextension are described and the importance for the practitioner is to recognize what cranial pattern is involved before setting out to treat the Class III patient. Expand
Orthodontics in a quantum world V: bruxism.
  • G. James
  • Medicine
  • International journal of orthodontics
  • 2009
TLDR
Three examples of severe bruxing illustrate how the cranial concept can be used to understand the etiology of bruxism and provides a logical practical way to approach the management and long-term treatment of bruXing. Expand
Cranial strains and malocclusion VIII: palatal expansion.
TLDR
It is argued that rapid palatal expansion is an inappropriate, potentially iatrogenic procedure which no longer has a place in the orthodontic armamentarium. Expand
Orthodontics in a quantum world I: the rationale for a new approach.
  • J. Gavin
  • Medicine
  • International journal of orthodontics
  • 2008
TLDR
An example is given of how this thinking might apply as to how orthodontic diagnosis and treatment might be affected by advances in physics and cell biology. Expand
Comparison of the efficiency of the indexes of Pont and Korkhause with Kernott technique in patients with narrowing of maxilla
TLDR
This study shows that for the biometrics of diagnostic models it is necessary to use methods that allow to estimate the width of the dentition rows on the left and on the right separately, which is impossible with using standard indexes. Expand
Examining the temporo-mandibular joint from a biotensegrity perspective: A change in thinking
TLDR
It is now considered that deficits in neural control and shortcomings in the underlying biomechanical theory and analysis have also played a part, and that a re-assessment from a different perspective could resolve these. Expand

TLDR
The ALF appliance represents a major innovation in TMD and orthopedic/orthodontic therapy and is capable of correcting not only the various types of malocclusion but also cranial base and cranial distortions present in the chronic pain, TMD type patient. Expand

TLDR
It is important that an examination of the PRM be included in evaluations for craniomandibular pain and dysfunction, because if any of these components of thePRM are not able to move and function freely, there will often be compromises in remote and local structures and their attendant physiological processes. Expand
Radiographic Evidence of Cranial Bone Mobility
TLDR
It is concluded that cranial bone mobility can be documented and measured on x-ray and external manipulation of the cranium alters selected parameters of the cranial vault and base that can be visualized and measuredon x-rays. Expand

  • B. Gillespie
  • Medicine
  • Cranio : the journal of craniomandibular practice
  • 1985
TLDR
An overview of the relationship between the osteopathic cranial concept and its dental considerations is presented, suggesting that dental appliance therapy, orthodontic tooth movement, occlusal equilibration, tooth extraction, and other common dental procedures should be predicated on the optimum function of this mechanism. Expand
Advanced lightwire functionals reduce orthodontic relapse factor.
TLDR
These findings are based on orthodontic techniques that focus on movement of teeth and maxillary expansion without regard for existing cranial base and cranial bone distortions. Expand
The structure and development of cranial and facial sutures.
TLDR
Investigation of the development and structure of a variety of sutures in available foetal, young and adult material finds that much more detailed and accurate information was required in order to provide the necessary basis for experimental work on the morphogenesis and functions of the suture.
