Diagnostic accuracy and measurement sensitivity of digital models for orthodontic purposes: A systematic review
Conclusions Digital models are as reliable as traditional plaster models, with high accuracy, reliability, and reproducibility. Landmark identification, rather than the measuring device or the software, appears to be the greatest limitation. Furthermore, with their advantages in terms of cost, time, and space required, digital models could be considered the new gold standard in current practice.

Impact of orthosurgical treatment phases on oral health–related quality of life
Conclusions Patients who completed their orthosurgical treatment had a significantly better oral health–related QoL and a more positive esthetic self-perception than did those undergoing treatment and those who were untreated. Crowding, crossbite, open bite, concave profile, edge-to-edge overjet, or Class III malocclusion negatively affected oral health–related QoL.

Evaluation of marginal alveolar bone in the anterior mandible with pretreatment and posttreatment computed tomography in nonextraction patients
Conclusions Orthodontic treatment causes changes in alveolar bone height and cortical bone thickness around the mandibular incisors. Although pretreatment cortical bone thickness, ridge width thickness, and specific tooth movements all play roles in what happens to the bone during treatment, incisor inclination was not correlated with alveolar bone height changes.

Unexpected complications associated with mandibular fixed retainers: A retrospective study
Conclusions Unexpected complications of mandibular fixed retainers are relatively rare. Facial divergence was identified as a possible predictor. However, the etiology is most likely multifactorial. Strong asymmetry among the patients with the twist effect suggests that the mechanical properties of retention wires may play a role and should be examined in the future.

Evaluation of facial hard and soft tissue asymmetry using cone-beam computed tomography
Conclusions Facial hard and soft tissue asymmetries can be precisely quantified using CBCT. However, especially in the gonial region where the surface topography shows alterations caused by asymmetry, many anatomic landmarks should be chosen for the assessment of asymmetry. At the gonial level, the compensation of the soft tissues for the hard tissues was found on 2-dimensional images; nevertheless, 3-dimensional right and left volumetric soft tissue evaluations provide evidence for asymmetry.

Progressive changes in patients with skeletal Class III malocclusion treated by 2-jaw surgery with minimal and conventional presurgical orthodontics: A comparative study
Conclusions Minimal presurgical orthodontics and conventional presurgical orthodontics showed similar extents and directions of skeletal changes in patients with Class III malocclusion. However, orthodontists and surgeons should preoperatively consider the postsurgical counterclockwise rotation of the mandible when using minimal presurgical orthodontics. Close and frequent observations are recommended in the early postsurgical stages. (Source: American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics)

Open-bite treatment with vertical control and tongue reeducation
Publication date: February 2016 Source:American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, Volume 149, Issue 2 Author(s): Justin Garrett, Eustaquio Araujo, Christopher Baker An open-bite malocclusion with a tongue-thrust habit is a challenging type of malocclusion to correct. A 12-year-old girl came for orthodontic treatment with a severe anterior open bite, extruded posterior segments, a tongue-thrust habit, and lip incompetency. Her parents refused surgical treatment, so a nonextraction treatment plan was developed that used palatal temporary skeletal anchorage devices for vertical control and mandibular t...

Inadvertent tooth movement with fixed lingual retainers
Publication date: February 2016 Source:American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, Volume 149, Issue 2 Author(s): Timothy G. Shaughnessy, William R. Proffit, Said A. Samara Fixed retainers are effective in maintaining the alignment of the anterior teeth more than 90% of the time, but they can produce inadvertent tooth movement that in the most severe instances requires orthodontic retreatment managed with a periodontist. This is different from relapse into crowding when a fixed retainer is lost. These problems arise when the retainer breaks but remains bonded to some or all teeth, or when an intact r...

Dimensional accuracy of digital dental models from cone-beam computed tomography scans of alginate impressions according to time elapsed after the impressions
Conclusions Digital dental models can be obtained from CBCT scans of alginate impressions without sending them to a remote laboratory. However, the impressions need to be scanned within 24 hours; otherwise, dimensional changes lead to errors that exceed the error of measurement.

Does Para-chloroaniline Really Form after Mixing Sodium Hypochlorite and Chlorhexidine?
Mixing sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) with chlorhexidine (CHX) forms a brown-colored precipitate. Previous studies are not in agreement whether this precipitate contains para-chloroaniline (PCA). Tests used for analysis may demonstrate different outcomes. Purpose of this study was to determine whether PCA is formed through the reaction of mixing NaOCl and CHX by using high performance liquid chromatography, proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, gas chromatography, thin layer chromatography, infrared spectroscopy, and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry.

Self-reported temporomandibular joint disorder symptoms, oral health, and quality of life of children in kindergarten through grade 5: Do sex, race, and socioeconomic background matter?
CONCLUSIONS: Considerable percentages of 4- to 12-year-old children reported TMJD symptoms, with girls and African American children being more likely than their counterparts to be affected. Experiencing TMJD symptoms was associated significantly with poorer OHRQoL. PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: Dental practitioners need to be aware that substantial percentages of kindergarten and elementary school-aged children experience TMJD symptoms. Taking a dental history and conducting an oral examination, therefore, should include assessments of the signs and symptoms of TMJD; treatment recommendations should be provided for affected...

Mapping the Quebec dental workforce: ranking rural oral health disparities.
CONCLUSIONS: This study concludes that there is a strong relationship between the degree of urbanization and the highest concentration of dental professionals. In addition, there is a lack of dental workforce availability, particularly specialists in rural Quebec. Further research is needed to examine and evaluate to what degree these distribution patterns might contribute to oral health outcomes of the rural population.

Proteomics of Secretory-Stage and Maturation-Stage Enamel of Genetically Distinct Mice
The mechanisms by which excessive ingestion of fluoride (F) during amelogenesis leads to dental fluorosis (DF) are still not precisely known. Inbred strains of mice vary in their susceptibility to develop DF, and therefore permit the investigation of underlying molecular events influencing DF severity. We employed a proteomic approach to characterize and evaluate changes in protein expression from secretory-stage and maturation-stage enamel in 2 strains of mice with different susceptibilities to DF (A/J, i.e. ‘susceptible' and 129P3/J, i.e. ‘resistant'). Weanling male and female susceptible and resistant mice fed a low...
