No orthodontic system combines aesthetics and comfort which delivers optimal treatment outcomes. This case report outlines how combining an upper lingual and a lower ceramic appliance can provide the best combination ofaesthetics whilst maintaining patien comfort, when undertaking class II camouflage treatment involving extraction of the upper first premolars.

One of the challenges posed by diastema closure treatment in the presence of tooth size discrepancy is to achieve adequate distribution of the spaces between the teeth. The use of the Digital Smile Design can assist the clinician in visualizing and measuring dentogingival discrepancies with maximum predictability. The present clinical case describes an approach to space distribution with assistance of the digital tool, allowing adequate restorative procedures. The protocol used was shown to be efficient, achieving the esthetics desired by the patient both during and after multidisciplinary treatment, as well as having adequate stability...

The use of mini-screws, also known as temporary anchorage devices (TADs), to obtain absolute anchorage has become very popular in orthodontics. Nevertheless, potential complications, including traumatic soft tissue lesions, accompany their use. We propose a method to cover the mini-screw head to prevent traumatic soft tissue lesions and promote patient comfort, while maintaining some separation between the composite resin and the peri-implant tissue.

The aim of this article is to describe the retreatment ofa high angle skeletal Class II patient with a moderate anterior crossbite who had previous mandibular orthognathic surgery. A traditional orthodontics/orthognathic surgery approach was selected for treatment. Facial balance was improved, and the final occlusal relationships were good.

This report describes the orthodontic camouflage treatment for a 52-year-old Chinese man using eBrace customized lingual appliance with bilateral maxillary first premolar extraction. The treatment results showed that using the eBrace customized lingual appliance can achieve expected effects and has a high level of safety for periodontal health.

In patients with skeletal malocclusion and odontoma, the prioritization of treatment is ofgreat importance. Ifsurgical removal of odontoma is postponed, the probability of adjacent teeth impaction increases. In this case, skeletal treatment was performed before odontoma rgery due to concerns about facial appearance and the patient's fear of surgery, and therefore adjacent tooth failed to erupt.

Palataly-displaced incisors or canines are typically extruded. The crossbite must be corrected without occlusal interference during alignment. Occlusal interference associated with such extrusion can prevent proper tooth positioning, and therefore, the temporary use of a bite plate may be necessary' However, unnecessary bite raising may occur when a bite plate is used in adults, and the patient's discomfort due to such an appliance cannot be ignored. Most of the time, conventional ligation fails and also ends with debonding of the bracket...

To overcome the challenge of maintaining the perfect adaptation of the retainer wire to the lingual surfaces of an anterior tooth while bonding, we have designed a facile method which will aid in accurate and precise placement of lingual retainer wire to ensure longterm stability ofan orthodontic treatment result.

This study provided the measures of crown angulations and inclinations which were evaluated using 3D cephalometry. This study was conducted to demonstrate the relationship between the main planes : Camper's, Frankfurt, and occlusalplanes for guiding the positioning ofthe skull and orthodontic planning.

This study investigated the effect of diameter on stability of mini-screws used as skeletal anchorage for maxillary canine retraction utilizing two different force magnitudes. Findings revealed that increasing the diameter of the mini-screws increases their stability. However, utilization of a high retraction force negatively affects stability especially with small diameters mini-screws.

This study aims to evaluate the association of dental and skeletal maturity and chronological age. Demerjien and Baccetti systems were used for measurements. CVM and dental age showed a significant association in females(OR=1. 05, 95% CI:1. 01-1.07). Teeth calcification can be used as simple predictors for CVM status and chronological age.

A 10-yearfemale presented a skeletal Class II relation with 7mm of overet, 40% overbite, and bilateral posterior lingual crossbite. Two phase therapy was planned to correct Class II skeletal relation, overjet, overbite, and achieve lip competency. Phase I therapy was done with Twin Block appliance to advance the retrognathic mandible. Phase II therapy was accomplished with fixed appliance for arch coordination, to correct minor displacement, and to finalize occlusion. Post treatment skeletal Class I relation was achieved...

After distalization of maxillary molars, retaining it in the new position is of utmost importance. There are various methods available to avoid taxing freshly distilized molars. We have discussed various methods to reinforce anchorage post-molar ditalization. We have introduced a new appliance that is a modified Nance palatal button for continuous distally directed force on the molars.

Active tiebacks using elastomeric modules are preferred for space closure in most cases. Elastomeric ring should be stretched by equal amount on both sides for equalforce delivery and to avoid unwanted complication like shift in mid-line, asymmetric space closure. Elastic tiebacks were originally described using an elastomeric module, stretched to twice its normal size but in clinical situations, stretch of elastomeric rings are diffcult to measure intraorally. This paper introduces a manually fabricated guiding system that will allow the clinician to accurately activate active tie-back bilaterally without fear of over/under stretching the module to twice its original size...

Since its arrival in the orthodontic world, Invisalign has changed the way orthodontic is practiced With more than 3 million patients treated worldwide the evidence is ''nvisalign is here to stay''. Align Technology did such a good marketing job that they developed a branding with the name "Invisalign''. People now ask/or it by its name. Still some practitioner think that the final results with this technique are not as good as those with braces. This article explains that there are ways to use this tool to produce results that are comparable to those achieved with braces...

This case history is an adult patient with a compromised upper airway, soft tissue dysfunction, and atypicalfacial growth. The nasal deviation and enlarged turbinates resulted in mouth-breathing and soft tissue dysfunction. Atypical growth occurs when the biological balance between bone remodeling and positional displacement is disrupted Following septoplasty and turbinate reduction to reestablish nasal respiration and myofunctional therapy to retrain the muscles, the atypical growth was redirected to normal...
