Treatment of a severe Class II Division 1 malocclusion combined with surgical miniscrew anchorage.

Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2019 Apr;155(4):572-583

Department of Orthodontics, Faculty of Dentistry, Khon Kaen University, Khon Kaen, Thailand.

This article reports the camouflage treatment of a female patient, aged 15 years 2 months, who had a Class II Division 1 malocclusion with severe anterior protrusion and deep incisor overbite. The camouflage treatment plan included bilateral extraction of the maxillary first premolars combined with the use of temporary anchorage devices (TADs) and tension coil springs to retract canines into the extraction spaces and then the 4 incisors. The treatment included use of a mandibular fixed labial arch with minimal use of Class II elastics to correct mild mandibular spacing and level the curve of Spee. Read More

A comprehensive treatment approach for idiopathic condylar resorption and anterior open bite with 3D virtual surgical planning and self-ligated customized lingual appliance.

Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2019 Apr;155(4):560-571

Department of Orthodontics, School of Dentistry, University of Alabama, Birmingham, Ala. Electronic address:

Introduction: We report the successful treatment of a 38-year-old woman with bilateral idiopathic condylar resorption and anterior open bite. She had incompetent lips, a gummy smile, increased lower facial height, high mandibular plane angle, skeletal and dental Class II malocclusion with mild mandibular crowding, increased overjet, and mandibular midline deviation to the right.

Methods: The treatment plan included: (1) presurgical alignment and leveling of the teeth in both arches; (2) jaw motion tracking (JMT) to detect mandibular movement; (3) 3-piece maxillary osteotomies with mandibular reconstruction and bilateral coronoidectomies; and (4) postsurgical correction of the malocclusion.

Some orthodontists' experiences of volunteering for a community orthodontic initiative.

Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2019 Apr;155(4):552-559

Department of Oral Sciences, School of Dentistry, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand.

Introduction: In society, dental professionals, including orthodontists, are often viewed as being solely motivated by money. Nevertheless, numerous orthodontists volunteer for community initiatives where they provide free or heavily subsidized treatment for underserved populations. This study explores the motivations of a group of New Zealand orthodontists who volunteered for one of these initiatives, Wish For A Smile (WFAS), as well as the high and low points of this work.

Orthodontic management of a patient with short root anomaly and impacted teeth.

Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2019 Mar;155(3):421-431

Division of Orthodontics, University of Connecticut Health Center, Farmington, Conn. Electronic address:

Short root anomaly (SRA) is a rare familial dental condition that is often misdiagnosed. Orthodontic treatment of patients with SRA is challenging because it is difficult to diagnose, it may be accompanied by other dental anomalies, and it has been reported to contribute to additional susceptibility to root resorption during orthodontic treatment. In this article, we describe a methodical and evidence-based means of diagnosing and orthodontically managing a patient with SRA. Read More

High-efficiency treatment with the use of traditional anchorage control for a patient with Class II malocclusion and severe overjet.

Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2019 Mar;155(3):411-420

Department of Orthodontics, Stomatologic Hospital of Chongqing Medical University, Chongqing, People's Republic of China; Chongqing Key Laboratory of Oral Diseases and Biomedical Sciences, Chongqing, People's Republic of China; Chongqing Municipal Key Laboratory of Oral Biomedical Engineering of Higher Education, Chongqing, People's Republic of China. Electronic address:

Patients with Class II malocclusion and severe overjet are often dissatisfied with their facial disharmony. Although temporary skeletal anchorage devices (TSADs) are now widely used in orthodontic treatment, traditional anchorage devices should not be overlooked as a treatment option. Proper design of traditional anchorage can achieve 3-dimensional control of incisors and molars as efficiently as TSADs in some patients with severe malocclusion. Read More

Biomechanical analysis for total distalization of the mandibular dentition: A finite element study.

Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2019 Mar;155(3):388-397

Department of Orthodontics, School of Dentistry, Kyungpook National University, Daegu, Korea.

Introduction: The aim of this finite element study was to analyze and clarify the mechanics of tooth movement patterns for total distalization of the mandibular dentition based on force angulation.

Methods: Long-term orthodontic movement of the mandibular dentition was simulated by accumulating the initial displacement of teeth produced by elastic deformation of the periodontal ligament.

Results: Displacement of each tooth was caused by movement of the whole dentition, elastic deflection of the archwire, and clearance gap between the archwire and bracket slot. Read More

College of Medicine and Dentistry, James Cook University, Queensland, Australia.

Introduction: This systematic review assesses the literature regarding the association between orthodontic tooth movement and external root resorption. By determining the evidence level supporting the association, the results could provide clinical evidence for minimizing the deleterious effect of orthodontic tooth movement.

Methods: Electronic databases, including MEDLINE, PubMed, Embase, Scopus, CINAHL, Cochrane Library, and LILACS, were searched up to February 2018, with hand searching of selected orthodontic journals undertaken to identify any preelectronic publications. Read More

Evaluation of three-dimensional printed virtual setups.

Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2019 Feb;155(2):288-295

Department of Orthodontics, Universidad Tecnológica de México, Mexico City, Mexico.

Introduction: Digital setups are reliable and show numerous benefits to the orthodontic practice. Fused deposition modeling can build physical replicas of these setup models. The purpose of this study was to compare 3-dimensional printed and conventional setups. Read More

Autotransplantation of premolars and space closure in a patient with inflamed sinuses.

Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2019 Feb;155(2):276-287

Division of Orthodontics, Department of Orofacial Science, University of California, San Francisco, Calif.

Congenital absence of permanent teeth can be treated by means of dental implants and prosthetics. Tooth autotransplantation is an alternative in growing patients because continued eruption of the transplanted tooth and associated alveolar bone growth can be expected. This clinical report presents tooth autotransplantation in a 10-year-old boy with chronic maxillary rhinosinusitis, diagnosed by the department of otorhinolaryngology. Read More

Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2019 Feb;155(2):264-275

Department of Orthodontics, Dental Research Institute and School of Dentistry, Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea. Electronic address:

To improve the facial profile of a Class II patient with chin deficiency, orthodontists have traditionally used incisor retraction or jaw surgery. Recently, a new technique was introduced that uses orthodontic mini-implants to intrude the incisors and rotate the mandibular plane counterclockwise. In patients with deep bite, heavy anterior occlusal contact can make it difficult to use intrusion for profile improvement. Read More

A rodent model using skeletal anchorage and low forces for orthodontic tooth movement.

Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2019 Feb;155(2):254-263

Department of Orthodontics, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, SC. Electronic address:

Introduction: Nonhuman animal models have been used extensively to study orthodontic tooth movement (OTM). However, rodent models have disadvantages, including a reported reduction in bone volume during OTM. The purpose of this study was to determine the viability of a skeletal anchorage and the effect of low force (∼3 cN) on interradicular bone volume during OTM. Read More
