Malocclusion is one of the three most common oral diseases reported by World Health Organization(WHO). In China, its incidence rate is rising. Malocclusion seriously affects the dental and maxillofacial function, facial appearance and growth development of nearly 260 million children in China, and what is more, it affects their physical and mental health development. Malocclusion occurrence is related to genetic and environmental factors. Early treatment of malocclusion can create a good dental and maxillofacial development environment, correct abnormal growth and control the adverse effects of abnormal genetic factors. It can effectively reduce the prevalence of children's malocclusion and enhance their physical and mental health. This is an urgent need from the economic perspective of our society, so it has great practical and social significance. Experts from the project group "standard diagnose and treatment protocols for early orthodontic intervention of malocclusions of children" which initiated by China National Health Institute of Hospital Administration wrote the "China Experts' Consensus on Preventive and Interceptive Orthodontic Treatments of Malocclusions of Children", which aims to guide and popularize the clinical practice, improve the clinical theory and practice level, and accelerate the disciplinary development of early treatment of children's malocclusion in China. The consensus elaborates the harmfulness of malocclusion and the necessity of early treatment, and brings up the principles and fundamental contents. Based on the law of dental and maxillofacial development, this paper puts forward the guiding suggestions of preventive and interceptive treatments in different stages of dental development ranging from fetus to early permanent dentition. It is a systematic project to promote and standardize the early treatment of malocclusion. Through scientific and comprehensive stratified clinical practice and professional training, the clinical system of early treatment of malocclusion in China will eventually be perfected, so as to comprehensively care for children's dental and maxillofacial health, and improve their oral and physical health in China.

A population-based analysis of adenosquamous carcinoma of the salivary gland.

Gland Surg 2021 Feb;10(2):645-655

Department of Pediatric Dentistry, Jinan Stomatological Hospital, Jinan, China.

Background: Adenosquamous carcinoma (ASC) of the salivary gland is a rare malignancy, and the characteristics and prognosis of this disease remain unclear. This study aimed to assess the clinicopathological characteristics of this rare disease and further determine the potential prognostic factors that affect its outcome.

Methods: Data of patients with ASC of the salivary gland were extracted retrospectively from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database between 1973 and 2016. The clinicopathological characteristics of these patients were assessed, and prognostic factors were further determined using Cox regression analysis.

Results: A total of 106 patients with ASC of the salivary gland were identified. The mean age at diagnosis was 66.1±14.9 years, with a male-to-female ratio of 1.47. The parotid gland was the most common primary site (N=91; 85.8%). The 1-, 2-, and 5-year overall survival (OS) rates were 71.5%, 55.0%, 41.5%, respectively. The 1-, 2-, and 5-year disease-specific survival (DSS) rates were 80.8%, 72.2%, and 59.2%, respectively. The OS and DSS shortened with increasing tumor stage, regardless of the American Joint Committee on Cancer tumor-node-metastasis stage or SEER historic stage. Surgery was the main treatment option to improve survival, and post-operative radiotherapy could also prolong OS and DSS (both P<0.01). A multivariate Cox regression analysis demonstrated that distant metastases and the use of surgery or radiation were independent prognostic factors for a favorable OS among patients with ASC of the salivary gland, and early stage (T1/T2) and the use of surgery were independent prognostic factors for favorable DSS among the patients with ASC of the salivary gland.

Conclusions: This is the largest case series on ASC of the salivary gland. Advanced T stage, distant metastases, and the use of surgery and radiation were associated with OS or DSS of this disease.

[Removable appliance and closed of central incisors: report of 48 cases].

Shanghai Kou Qiang Yi Xue 2012 Dec;21(6):700-4

Department of Pediatric Dentistry, Jinan Hospital of Stomatology, Jinan 250001, China.

Purpose: To evaluate the treatment effect of orthodontic traction on embedded and inverted maxillary bending central incisors.

Methods: Fifty-two embedded and inverted maxillary central incisors without-eruption ability in 48 cases were treated by combined orthodontic traction with surgical treatment after spiral CT positioning and expanding the space, the eruption situation, gingival-breaking time and teeth pulp vitality after treatment were recorded, and the treatment effect was evaluated.

Results: Forty-eight cases with 52 impacted upper central incisors were treated with surgical and closed orthodontic traction, successful results were achieved in 36 cases, accounting for 69.23%; 15 cases had improvement, accounting for 28.85%; 1 case failed, accounting for 1.9%. Pulp vitality tests were all normal and there was no root absorption and ankylosis.

Conclusions: Selecting appropriate cases, precise positioning with spiral CT, proper space expanding and rational application of removable traction appliance are the keys to successful treatment of impacted and inverted maxillary bending central incisors of children in mixed dentition.
