- Bias in a blink: Shedding light on implicit attitudes toward patients with a cleft lipby Rany M. Bous, Anthony Lyamichev, Ashleigh Kmentt, Manish Valiathan on 03/05/2021 at 12:00 am
Previous studies have shown that patients with cleft lip and/or palate may be stigmatized in society. The objective of this study was to use an implicit association test to evaluate the subconscious biases of non–health care providers and orthodontists against patients with a repaired cleft lip (CL).
- The Salzmann Index and discrepancy index correlation: Determining a threshold discrepancy index score for Medicaid approvalby Vivek Patel, Daniel Rinchuse, Thomas Zullo on 02/05/2021 at 12:00 am
This study aimed to compare patients' Salzmann Index scores for those who applied for Medicaid orthodontic coverage in Pennsylvania with their corresponding American Board of Orthodontics discrepancy index (DI) scores to assess if there is a correlation between Salzmann and DI scores. In addition, a threshold DI score was calculated that would correspond to Medicaid coverage approval. The study intended to answer the following questions: is there a correlation of 0.7 or greater between a patient's Salzmann Index and their DI? If so, is there a particular DI score that can be used as the minimum score for approving Medicaid orthodontic coverage in the state of Pennsylvania?

- The giftby Peter M. Greco on 01/05/2021 at 12:00 am
Bill is an enthusiastic general dentist, but you'd consider his dentistry to be adequate at best. He's also an expert at marketing his practice among his colleagues. The holiday gifts he brings to you and the staff are impressive. He brought you a desk lamp one holiday season embossed with the name of your alma mater and the year you graduated from dental school. Shortly before Thanksgiving, he hired a waiter who rolled a pair of serving trays into your office with a 3-course luncheon for the entire office.
- The quagmire of collegiality vs competitivenessby Adith Venugopal, Nikhilesh Vaid, S. Jay Bowman on 01/05/2021 at 12:00 am
A parent walks into an office seeking an opinion about the need for orthodontic treatment for his child. The orthodontist evaluates the records, provides treatment options, and his professional perspective on why, if the patient was his own family member or child, he would choose a particular option. They exchange pleasantries, and the family leaves, stating that they will get in touch with the office soon. Returning in a few weeks to start treatment, the father says, “We consulted with 3 other orthodontists before we met you ….

- I can do thatby Laurance Jerrold on 01/05/2021 at 12:00 am
You practice in a midsized town in 1 corner of a large county. You are part of a large orthodontic family; your father and your brother are both in practice with you. There is a general dentist in the opposing corner of the county who happens to provide orthodontic services. The general dentist is being sued for malpractice relating to orthodontic services he performed. Here's where it gets interesting. You have been summoned for jury duty. What is even more interesting is that of the first 8 jurors interviewed, 4 of them, including yourself, have dental backgrounds of one sort or another.

- Multicollinearityby Michail Tsagris, Nikolaos Pandis on 01/05/2021 at 12:00 am
When fitting a multiple linear regression model,1,2 we must safeguard against the problem of multicollinearity. Multicollinearity is a phenomenon that occurs when 2 or more independent variables are highly (but not perfectly) correlated.2 Multicollinearity can either inflate (or deflate) the standard errors of the coefficients, and as a result, the coefficients can, falsely, become nonsignificant (or significant). Another effect of multicollinearity is that of a sign change of the coefficient in which a negative effect can become positive and vice versa.

- Orthodontic space closure in a young female patient with solitary median maxillary central incisor syndromeby Ute E.M. Schneider, Lorenz Moser on 30/04/2021 at 12:00 am
A solitary median maxillary incisor can occur as a rare single dental anomaly or a symptom of the early-intrauterine developmental brain disorder of holoprosencephaly. The few published case reports about orthodontic treatment for this disorder have only described space opening for prosthodontic replacement of a central incisor. In contrast, the present patient was treated with extraction of the solitary median maxillary central incisor and orthodontic space closure with subsequent minimally invasive restorations in order to avoid looming esthetic or periodontal sequelae associated with any type of fixed bridgework or implant-borne crowns in the sensitive maxillary anterior area—which is especially indicated in young girls with a hyperdivergent growth pattern.
- Simulation of orthodontic tooth movement during activation of an innovative design of closing loop using the finite element methodby Tuan Nguyen Anh, Ryo Hamanaka, Sachio Jinnai, Hiroya Komaki, Satoshi Yamaoka, Jun-ya Tominaga, Yoshiyuki Koga, Noriaki Yoshida on 29/04/2021 at 12:00 am
Although many attempts have been made to study the mechanical behavior of closing loops, most have been limited to analyses of the magnitude of forces and moments acting on the end of the closing loop. The objectives of this study were to simulate orthodontic tooth movement during the activation of a newly designed closing loop combined with a gable bend and to investigate the optimal loop activation condition to achieve the desired tooth movement.
- Microimplant assisted rapid palatal expansion vs surgically assisted rapid palatal expansion for maxillary transverse discrepancy treatmentby Cibele Braga de Oliveira, Priscila Ayub, Ingrid Müller Ledra, Wilson Humio Murata, Selly Sayuri Suzuki, Dirceu Barnabé Ravelli, Ary Santos-Pinto on 27/04/2021 at 12:00 am

- Hemimandibular hyperplasia treatment with condylectomy and orthodontic camouflage treatment using miniplateby Ki-Jun Kim, Jae Hyun Park, Na-Young Chang, Bong Chul Kim, Jong-Moon Chae on 24/04/2021 at 12:00 am
A 13-year-old growing female patient presented with hemimandibular hyperplasia of the right side, Class III hypodivergent skeletal pattern, and severe facial asymmetry. Corrective surgery was deferred until her growth had been completed. When the patient was 16 years old, a low condylectomy was performed on the hyperplastic side of her mandible to prevent its progressive condylar hyperplasia, while simultaneous orthodontic camouflage treatment was performed with the intrusion of the maxillary right posterior teeth using temporary skeletal anchorage devices without additional orthognathic surgery.
- Development of dentofacial characteristics related to Incontinentia Pigmenti syndrome: A repeated cross-sectional studyby Fernanda Diffini Santa Maria, Sérgio Estelita Barros, Kelly Chiqueto, Luiza Monteavaro Mariath, Lavínia Schüler-Faccini, Ana Elisa Kiszewski on 24/04/2021 at 12:00 am

- Are chin and symphysis morphology facial type–dependent? A computed tomography-based studyby Tatiana Sella Tunis, Hila May, Rachel Sarig, Alexander Dan Vardimon, Israel Hershkovitz, Nir Shpack on 24/04/2021 at 12:00 am
The chin is a major determinant of the facial profile; hence, it plays a major role in orthodontics and orthognathic surgery. It is thus essential to follow and better understand its expression in different facial types. The major objectives of the current study were to characterize morphometrically the chin and symphysis and reveal their association with different facial types.
- Correlation between esthetic expectations for orthognathic treatment and psychological characteristics among Chinese adult patientsby Ping Nie, Fei Teng, Fang Wang, Guofang Shen, Min Zhu, Dedong Yu on 24/04/2021 at 12:00 am

- Treatment of maxillary transversal deficiency by using a mini-implant-borne rapid maxillary expander and aligners in combinationby Benedict Wilmes, Nour Tarraf, Dieter Drescher on 24/04/2021 at 12:00 am
Bone-borne rapid maxillary expansion distraction devices are used to achieve a more skeletal expansion and to avoid dental side effects of conventional expanders such as tipping of anchorage teeth. In this article, we report the use of a prefabricated expander fixed on 2 mini-implants in the anterior palate. This allows for the insertion of the mini-implants and the expander to occur without the need for an impression or any laboratory procedures. Especially when aligners are going to be used, the use of a mini-implant-borne expander seems to be reasonable because the expander can be left in place as a skeletal retainer during the aligner finishing.
- A cross-sectional evaluation of the impact of Class II Division 1 malocclusion in treated and untreated adolescents on oral health–related quality of lifeby Aliki Tsichlaki, Rachael Adcock, Padhraig S. Fleming on 23/04/2021 at 12:00 am
The relationship between malocclusion, orthodontic treatment, and oral health–related quality of life (OHRQOL) is complicated, with some traits, such as increased overjet, having a potentially greater adverse effect on an adolescent's OHRQOL. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of malocclusion and orthodontic treatment on OHRQOL in adolescents presenting with Class II Division 1 malocclusion and explore the relationship between OHRQOL using a condition-specific and generic instrument and occlusal outcome.
- A comparative assessment of information recall and comprehension between conventional leaflets and an animated video in adolescent patients undergoing fixed orthodontic treatment: A single-center, randomized controlled trialby Abedalrahman J.

- Evaluations of the facial attractiveness of young women with severe maxillary anterior crowding by orthodontists and laypeople with and without orthodontic treatment experience in Japanby Aiko Yabe, Misa Ikoma, Kazuhito Arai on 19/04/2021 at 12:00 am
Maxillary anterior crowding (MxAC) has been considered to be an esthetically favorable characteristic of young women in Japan. It has been hypothesized that laypeople and orthodontists have different esthetic preferences; however, to date, this has not been investigated in detail. Therefore, the present study compared the facial attractiveness of women with MxAC and the interpretation of MxAC among orthodontists and laypeople with and without orthodontic treatment experience in Japan.

- Orthodontically induced root resorption: A critical analysis of finite element studies’ input and outputby Marina Guimarães Roscoe, Paolo M. Cattaneo, Michel Dalstra, Omar Melendres Ugarte, Josete B.C. Meira on 27/03/2021 at 12:00 am
Orthodontically induced inflammatory root resorption (OIIRR) constitutes an undesirable risk connected to orthodontic treatment. Finite element analysis (FEA) is a powerful tool to study the risk of OIIRR. However, its efficiency in predicting OIIRR depends on the insertion of the correct inputs and the selection of an output coherent with the clinical failure mechanism.
- Surgically assisted orthodontic alignment of impacted maxillary canines: A retrospective analysis of functional and esthetic outcomes and risk factors for failureby Koenraad Grisar, Jasper Fransen, Max Smeets, Theo Hoppenreijs, Hossein Ghaeminia, Constantinus Politis, Reinhilde Jacobs on 27/03/2021 at 12:00 am

- Nano-Bio Fusion Gingival Gel in the management of fixed orthodontic treatment-induced gingivitis: An empirical studyby Mohammad Khursheed Alam, Kiran Kumar Ganji on 24/03/2021 at 12:00 am
This research aimed to investigate the effect of Nano-Bio Fusion Gingival Gel ([NBFG] NanoCgureTech, Gangdong-gu, Seoul, Korea) as an aid along with oral hygiene advice and routine scaling in patients with malocclusion to control treatment-induced gingivitis and periodontitis in patients undergoing fixed orthodontic treatment.
- For four sixes, revisitedby Andrew DiBiase, Cara Sandler, Paul Jonathan Sandler on 23/03/2021 at 12:00 am
Rarely is the extraction of the four first molars the ideal choice in the course of orthodontic treatment, particularly in older patients. Although this approach can offer distinct advantages in carefully selected patients, it is also associated with a number of well-recognized problems, including the extension of treatment times, anchorage management, and control of second molars during space closure. However, by careful use of contemporary materials and techniques, a high standard of treatment can be achieved, even in patients with complex malocclusions.
- Roles of autophagy in orthodontic tooth movementby Yina Li, Laura Anne Jacox, Shannon Coats, Jane Kwon, Peng Xue, Na Tang, Zou Rui, Xiaoyu Wang, Yong-Il Kim, Te Ju Wu, Yan-Ting Lee, Sing Wai Wong, Chia Hui Chien, Chih-Wen Cheng, Ryan Gross, Feng-Chang Lin, Henry Tseng, Jennifer Martinez, Ching-Chang Ko on 23/03/2021 at 12:00 am
Orthodontic tooth movement (OTM) relies on efficient remodeling of alveolar bone. While a well-controlled inflammatory response is essential during OTM, the mechanism regulating inflammation is unknown. Autophagy, a conserved catabolic pathway, has been shown to protect cells from excess inflammation in disease states. We hypothesize that autophagy plays a role in regulating inflammation during OTM.
