- Does age influence self-perception of the soft-tissue profile in children?by Vysnave Varatharaju, Marianne Caflisch, Cindy Soroken, Stavros Kiliaridis, Gregory S. Antonarakis on 15/01/2021 at 12:00 am
Appreciation of the soft-tissue profile is important in orthodontic diagnosis and treatment. However, are the patients themselves aware of their profile appearance? We aimed to evaluate if age influences self-perception of the soft-tissue profile in children.
- Interdisciplinary management of a patient with a bilateral cleft lip and palate and 12 congenitally missing teethby Roy Sabri, Nadim AbouJaoude on 01/01/2021 at 12:00 am
This article reports the interdisciplinary treatment of a girl born with a complete bilateral cleft lip and palate. She had congenitally missing maxillary lateral incisors and canines and mandibular incisors, canines, and second premolars in addition to third molars. At age 11 years 2 months, she was treated with rapid maxillary expansion followed by bonding of the maxillary arch. Cranial harvested alveolar bone graft surgery was done at age 17 years 2 months. Mandibular arch treatment was started at age 19 years using single tooth implants initially as orthodontic anchorage devices and secondarily as prosthetic abutments.
- Three-dimensional printing and in-house appliance fabrication: Between innovation and stepping into the unknownby Theodore Eliades, Spiros Zinelis on 01/01/2021 at 12:00 am
Recently, an abundance of case presentations, clinician's corner articles, and opinion pieces have appeared in professional periodicals and regional orthodontic journals, which, coupled with the flooding swamp of related entries on social media, solidifies the impression that the do-it-yourself method of fabricating orthodontic appliances through 3-dimensional (3D) printing is the dominant trend in appliance fabrication. Interestingly, the apparent contradiction between the large quantity of information on this topic and the striking absence of evidence published in the scientific literature on the properties of printed utilities and auxiliaries, their intraoral aging profile, as well as the release of compounds in vitro or in vivo, has not been brought into the discussion yet.

- The liftby Peter M. Greco on 01/01/2021 at 12:00 am
Your relationship with Dr Green seemed to be a throwback from the good old days. Aside from 1 other orthodontist in the vicinity, you and Green were the only orthodontists within a 15 mile radius 20 years ago. However, no competition rose between you, and you shared an enduring trust and respect for quality from referring dentists. You covered each other's offices when either of you were absent from the office. In the few instances of second opinion consultations between your 2 offices, you were equally respectful of the perspective that there are more ways than 1 to treat a malocclusion.

- Gingival health and excess weightby Demetrios J. Halazonetis on 01/01/2021 at 12:00 am
I read with great interest the paper by Costa et al (Costa MVC, Calderan MF, Cruvinel T. Could orthodontic fixed appliances and excess weight affect gingival health in adolescents? Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2020;157:172-7). The authors conclude that weight, as assessed specifically by body mass index, is related to gingival inflammation. Their results include a scatter plot of body mass index (%) variation with the gingival index and a very high correlation coefficient between these variables (ρ = 0.97, P <0.001).

- Reporting bias: Notion, many faces and implicationsby Loukia M. Spineli, Nikolaos Pandis on 01/01/2021 at 12:00 am
There is evidence that studies that report statistically significant results are more likely to get published compared with studies with nonsignificant results.1 Systematic reporting of studies on the basis of the direction and size of the results is a threat to the integrity of systematic reviews because it can lead to biased treatment effects.1 The potential bias emerging from such practices is known as publication bias and falls under the reporting bias umbrella. There is a preponderance of publication with statistically significant results across fields, including dentistry and orthodontics.
- Ain't nothing to talk aboutby Laurance Jerrold on 01/01/2021 at 12:00 am
Your patient's particular condition could have been treated in one of a few different ways. However, from your perspective, there was only 1 clear way. So, when it came to the informed consent discussion, you did everything you were supposed to. You, or your treatment coordinator, informed the patient what their particular problem was, how you recommended treating their condition, why you were proposing whatever it was you were proposing, and the risks and benefits of the procedure you were recommending, along with the administrative requisites (time, money, appointments, etc.), and finally offered to answer any questions the patient might have.

- American Association of Orthodontists Foundation Rapid Assessment of Evidence: Accelerated teeth movementby Veerasathpurush Allareddy, David A. Covell, Sylvia A. Frazier-Bowers on 31/12/2020 at 12:00 am
A request was submitted by a member of the American Association of Orthodontists for an assessment on efficacy and current evidence on accelerated tooth movement approaches by the Rapid Assessment of Evidence Panel (RAE) of the American Association of Orthodontists Foundation. The RAE panel undertook a review of current evidence on the efficacy of accelerated tooth movement approaches such as piezocision, corticotomies, photobiomodulation, and a wide variety of surgically assisted approaches. The primary outcomes examined in the review included: tooth movement (typically canine retraction within the first 3 months) after interventions for accelerated tooth movement and duration of orthodontic treatment.

- Midpalatal suture density ratio: Assessing the predictive power of a novel predictor of skeletal response to maxillary expansionby Samuel Titus, Brent E. Larson, Thorsten Grünheid on 31/12/2020 at 12:00 am
Rapid maxillary expansion (RME) is a common orthodontic treatment to correct maxillary transverse deficiency; however, the inability to determine the precise timing of fusion of the midpalatal suture creates difficulty for clinicians to prescribe the appropriate treatment, surgical or nonsurgical expansion. The purpose of this study was to assess the predictive power of the midpalatal suture density ratio (MPSD) for a skeletal response to RME.

- Evaluation of masticatory muscle response to clear aligner therapy using ambulatory electromyographic recordingby Tiantong Lou, Johnny Tran, Tommaso Castroflorio, Ali Tassi, Iacopo Cioffi on 21/11/2020 at 12:00 am
Patients undergoing clear aligner therapy (CAT) report muscle tenderness and produce wear facets on their aligner trays. However, little is known about the masticatory muscle response to clear aligners. Here, we measured the activity of the masseter during CAT using ambulatory electromyography. We also explored whether psychological traits modulate the masticatory muscle response to CAT.

The patient wore Class III elastics between hooks on the maxillary and mandibular frameworks full time for 10 months.
