Reliability of upper airway linear, area, and volumetric measurements in cone-beam computed tomography
Conclusions: Based on these results, airway assessments by examiners with different backgrounds might have reliable anteroposterior linear measurements; cross-sectional areas at the levels of the palatal plane, soft palate, and tongue; and sagittal area and volume. The unreliable measurements were linear width, cross-sectional area at the level of the vallecula, and minimum axial area. (Source: American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics)

Antimicrobial effect of Melaleuca alternifolia dental gel in orthodontic patients
The aim of this study was to evaluate the antimicrobial effect and sensorial analysis of the gel developed with the essential oil of Melaleuca alternifolia. Thirty-four volunteers, divided into 2 groups, were monitored for 4 weeks. Initially, clinical biofilm (plaque index) and saliva samples (bacteria count) were collected, from which the standard values for each patient were obtained. For 7 days, group 1 used the melaleuca gel (Petite Marie/All Chemistry, São Paulo, Brazil), and group 2 used Colgate Total (S.B. Campo, São Paulo, Brazil). After 7 days, the plaque index was performed again, as well as the bacteria cou...

Impact of metal and ceramic fixed orthodontic appliances on judgments of beauty and other face-related attributes
Introduction: Physical attributes, behavior, and personal ornaments exert a direct influence on how a person's beauty and personality are judged. The aim of this study was to investigate how people who wear a fixed orthodontic appliance see themselves and are seen by others in social settings.Methods: A total of 60 adults evaluated their own smiling faces in 3 different scenarios: without a fixed orthodontic appliance, wearing a metal fixed orthodontic appliance, and wearing an esthetic fixed orthodontic appliance. Furthermore, 15 adult raters randomly assessed the same faces in standardized front-view facial photographs. ...

Maxillary arch width and buccal corridor changes with orthodontic treatment. Part 1: Differences between premolar extraction and nonextraction treatment outcomes
Conclusions: Because they reflect different morphologies, there are likely to be significant differences in average maxillary anterior and posterior posttreatment arch widths in those treated with or without extractions. However, these arch width differences are not likely to be discernible in extraction and nonextraction patients as differences in the buccal corridor widths and areas.

Timely relocation of subapically impacted maxillary canines and replacement of an ankylosed mandibular molar are the keys to eruption disturbances in a prepubertal patient
Eruption disturbances such as impaction and ankylosis complicate orthodontic treatment because soft-tissue and hard-tissue considerations must be taken into account. Treatment is further complicated when such eruption disturbances occur in a growing patient. Extraction of impacted or ankylosed teeth can be an option that carries the weight of additional prostheses and bony defects, whereas exposure or luxation followed by orthodontic traction can preserve the patient's teeth and bony structure with improved esthetics. Therefore, an accurate diagnosis is needed in establishing an efficient and effective force system to achi...

Interdisciplinary treatment of a periodontally compromised adult patient with multiple missing posterior teeth
This article reports the comprehensive, interdisciplinary treatment of a 50-year-old periodontally compromised adult patient with multiple missing posterior teeth. After initial periodontal treatment, the maxillary first molars and right central incisor were intruded orthodontically. Miniscrews were used to intrude the maxillary first molars by 3 mm. The mandibular arch was restored with a tooth-supported overdenture. Root coverage of the maxillary right central incisor was performed using Alloderm (Biohorizons, Birmingham, Ala). At the end of the interdisciplinary therapy, the results were esthetically pleasing, with the...

Perceptions of midline deviations among different facial types
Conclusions: Facial type and sex may affect the thresholds at which a midline deviation is detected and above which a midline deviation is considered unacceptable. Both the euryprosopic facial type and male sex were associated with higher levels of attractiveness at relatively small levels of deviations.

Introduction to observational studies: Part 2
I will continue the introduction to observational studies by explaining some of the common nomenclature that might also be encountered in randomized controlled trials. We often use the terms exposure and outcome. Exposure is a potential risk factor, and we are interested in whether it is associated with the outcome, which could be a condition, disease, health measure, or behavior of interest. For example, if we are assessing the association between orthodontic therapy and periodontal conditions, the exposure is the orthodontic therapy, and the outcome is the periodontal condition, which can be measured as sulcus depth, bon...

Forkhead box P3‐positive regulatory T‐cells and interleukin 17‐positive T‐helper 17 cells in chronic inflammatory periodontal disease
ConclusionThese results show that FOXP3+ cells are more prominent than IL‐17+ cells in periodontal disease processes, which may suggest a predominant role for FOXP3+cells in periodontal disease. Further studies are required to characterize these cells more precisely and to understand, in more detail, their roles in the pathophysiology of periodontal disease.

Effects of NaOCl, EDTA and MTAD when applied to dentine on stress distribution in post‐restored roots with flared canals
ConclusionNaOCl, EDTA and MTAD treated dentine and a rigid post with high elastic modulus may increase fracture risk in roots with flared canals by increasing the stresses within root dentine. Therefore, solutions which alter the elastic modulus of dentine less (such as NaOCl) or an individually shaped post‐core system constructed with a material which has an elastic modulus close to dentine (polyethylene fiber) should be used in weak roots.This article is protected by copyright.

Moving into a new era of periodontal genetic studies: relevance of large case–control samples using severe phenotypes for genome‐wide association studies
Studies to elucidate the role of genetics as a risk factor for periodontal disease have gone through various phases. In the majority of cases, the initial ‘hypothesis‐dependent’ candidate‐gene polymorphism studies did not report valid genetic risk loci. Following a large‐scale replication study, these initially positive results are believed to be caused by type 1 errors. However, susceptibility genes, such as CDKN2BAS (Cyclin Dependend KiNase 2B AntiSense RNA; alias ANRIL [ANtisense Rna In the Ink locus]), glycosyltransferase 6 domain containing 1 (GLT6D1) and cyclooxygenase 2 (COX2), have been reported as conclu...

The effectiveness of a mouth guard to protect against strong occlusion caused by modified electroconvulsive therapy
Abstract Modified electroconvulsive therapy (m‐ECT) is a treatment for mental disease such as depressive disorder. Although a muscle relaxant is used during current application, strong occlusion occurs due to the proximity of the electrode to the temporal and masseter muscles. Although a feedback mechanism to avoid excessive occlusion occurs unconsciously, the mechanism does not work under general anesthesia. Strong occlusion may cause complications such as tooth injury, pain of the jaw, lip laceration, and bleeding of the gums. Although there was a report that the insertion of shock‐absorbing materials such as gauze r...

Effect of Ceramic Thickness and Shade on Mechanical Properties of a Resin Luting Agent
ConclusionsThe dual‐cured resin cement studied irradiated through the 1‐mm‐thick ceramic with the lightest shade (bleaching ceramic) exhibited a better elastic modulus, and there was no effect in KHN of the resin cement when light cured under different ceramic shades and thicknesses (1 and 3 mm), except when the A3.5 3‐mm‐thick ceramic was used. Clinical SignificanceVariolink II irradiated through ceramic with the lowest chroma exhibited the highest elastic modulus; therefore, the light activation method might not be the same for all clinical situations.
