This study will compare the techniques of piezocision and alveolar corticotomies in accelerating orthodontic tooth movement. It will consist of a split-mouth study in patients who require ...
Orthodontic treatment requires application of force systems to individual teeth or groups of teeth, which results in a cellular response with periodontal ligament (PDL) and alveolar bone r...
This study is intended to investigate the optimum interval between micro-osteoperforations to accelerate orthodontic tooth movement. Overall, the investigator will be comparing the rate of...
The purpose of this study is to test whether the two MMPs can be up-regulated during orthodontic treatment. Alveolar bone samples will be collected from partially impacted third molars aft...
Thirty six patients needs therapeutic extraction of the maxillary first premolars with subsequent retraction of the maxillary canines will be divided randomly into two groups : piezocision...
Because orthodontic tooth movement is dependent upon osteoclast-mediated resorption of alveolar bone adjacent to the pressure side of tooth roots, biologic mediators that regulate osteoclasts can be u...
During orthodontic tooth movement (OTM), the speed of movement depends on the rate of bone turnover. In this study, we used a rat model to investigate the effect of 970 nm low-level laser therapy (L...
As the taking of any medication may theoretically affect the complex pathways responsible for periodontal tissue homeostasis and the events leading to orthodontic tooth movement, it is considered impo...
Secretory microRNAs (miRNAs) have been used increasingly as biomarkers for cancers, autoimmune diseases and inflammatory diseases. They are reported as being freely circulated or encapsulated in micro...
NSAID analgesics have found widespread use in the treatment of pain, inflammation and fever. The highly COX-2-selective NSAID etoricoxib has shown a favorable side effect profile and excellent analges...
Orthodontic techniques used to correct the malposition of a single tooth.
Orthodontic techniques used to correct the malposition of a tooth or teeth.
Technique combining controlled eruptive tooth movement and incision of the supracrestal gingival attachment to allow for proper restoration of a destroyed or damaged crown of a tooth. Controlled eruption of the tooth is obtained using ORTHODONTIC APPLIANCES. During this eruptive phase, repeated incisions are made at the junctional epithelium of the sulcus and the supracrestal connective tissue to prevent coronal displacement of the gingiva and of the attachment apparatus.
Orthodontic movement in the coronal direction achieved by outward tension on the PERIODONTAL LIGAMENT. It does not include the operative procedure that CROWN LENGTHENING involves.
Devices used for influencing tooth position. Orthodontic appliances may be classified as fixed or removable, active or retaining, and intraoral or extraoral. (Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed, p19)
