Objective: To evaluate pharyngeal airway and maxillary sinus volumes following symmetric rapid maxillary expansion (RME) and asymmetric rapid maxillary expansion (ARME) treatment using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT).

Materials And Methods: The study consisted of 60 patients presenting to the orthodontics clinic with an indication that they required symmetric or asymmetric rapid maxillary expansion treatment. Individuals were included if they were aged 12-15 years and had symmetric (RME group; 14 girls, 16 boys) or asymmetric (ARME group; 16 girls, 14 boys) maxillary deficiency. Read More

Bone dehiscence formation during orthodontic tooth movement through atrophic alveolar ridges.

Angle Orthod 2019 Dec 12. Epub 2019 Dec 12.

Objectives: To test the null hypothesis that there is no difference in bone dehiscence formation before and after orthodontic tooth movement through an atrophic alveolar ridge.

Material And Methods: This longitudinal retrospective study evaluated pretreatment and posttreatment cone-beam computed tomography imaging of 15 adult patients. Twenty-five teeth were moved through the atrophic alveolar bone, whereas 25 teeth not subjected to translational movement were considered controls. Read More

Effectiveness of miniscrew-supported maxillary incisor intrusion in deep-bite correction: .

Angle Orthod 2020 03 9;90(2):291-304. Epub 2019 Dec 9.

Objectives: To evaluate systematically the effectiveness of miniscrew-supported maxillary incisor intrusion compared with other nonsurgical intrusive mechanics for deep-bite correction.

Materials And Methods: Unrestricted electronic searches in Embase, Web of Science, MEDLINE, LILACS, and Cochrane's CENTRAL as well as manual searches were conducted up to August 2019. Only randomized clinical trials (RCTs) were included. Read More

Evaluation of toxicity and response to oxidative stress generated by orthodontic bands in human gingival fibroblasts.

Angle Orthod 2020 03 5;90(2):285-290. Epub 2019 Dec 5.

Objective: To evaluate the cytotoxicity of stainless-steel orthodontic bands and their influence on the expression of the antioxidant genes in human gingival fibroblasts.

Materials And Methods: Ten bands of each brand (Dentsply-Sirona, Dentaurum, TP Orthodontics, and Morelli) were conditioned in 0.2 g/mL culture medium at 37°C for 14 days, and the corresponding conditioned media were applied over the fibroblasts. Read More
