Maxillary molar intrusion and transverse decompensation to enable mandibular single-jaw surgery with rotational setback and transverse shift for a patient with mandibular prognathism and asymmetry.

Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2020 Jun;157(6):818-831

Postgraduate Orthodontic Program, Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health, A.T. Still University, Mesa, Ariz; Graduate School of Dentistry, Kyung Hee University, Seoul and Seoul, Korea.

When performing single-jaw surgery for mandibular setback, the distal segment of the mandible is brought distally along the occlusal plane, leaving the relationship of the B-point and pogonion unchanged. Double-jaw surgery for rotation of the maxillomandibular complex can be considered for solving this problem. However, maxillary surgery for rotational setback of the mandible can be replaced with orthodontic intrusion of the maxillary molars. Read More

Alveolar bone morphology in patients with a unilateral palatally displaced maxillary lateral incisor: A cone-beam computed tomography study.

Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2020 May 4. Epub 2020 May 4.

Department of Oral Health Sciences Orthodontic Science, Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Tokyo, Japan.

Introduction: Lingual displacement of the maxillary anterior teeth is 1 of the most common forms of malocclusion. The labial alveolar bone is thinner for the maxillary lateral incisor than for the central incisor and canine; however, the alveolar bone width at the actual position of the maxillary lateral incisor has not been examined. We investigated the morphologic characteristics of the alveolar bone around palatally displaced maxillary lateral incisors using cone-beam computed tomography and a split-mouth model. Read More

Alteration of tooth movement by reveromycin A in osteoprotegerin-deficient mice.

Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2020 May;157(5):680-689

Department of Orthodontics, School of Dentistry, Aichi Gakuin University, Nagoya, Japan.

Introduction: Osteoprotegerin-deficient mice develop severe high-turnover osteoporosis with porous low-density trabecular bone from an age-related increase in osteoclast activity and are useful alveolar bone models of osteoporosis or frail periodontal tissue. Bisphosphonate (BP), a first-line drug for osteoporosis, is bone-avid, causing side effects such as brittle and fragile bones and jaw osteonecrosis after tooth extraction. In orthodontics, active movement is precisely controlled by temporarily suppressing and resuming movement. Read More

Comparison of dental outcomes in patients with nonsyndromic complete unilateral cleft lip and palate who receive secondary alveolar bone grafting before or after emergence of the permanent maxillary canine.

Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2020 May;157(5):668-679

Faculty of Dentistry, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada; Department of Dentistry, Division of Orthodontics, The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Electronic address:

Introduction: For patients with complete unilateral cleft lip and palate (CUCLP), secondary alveolar bone grafting (SABG) can be performed before or after the emergence of the cleft side permanent canine (pre-CE and post-CE, respectively). The controversy regarding dental outcomes related to the timing of SABG remains unsettled. The objective of this study was to evaluate dental survival and specific dental outcomes of cleft-adjacent teeth in children with CUCLP who received either pre-CE or post-CE SABG. Read More
