1/33. Activator and Begg appliance management of a severe Angle Class II, division 1 malocclusion.

    A male patient aged 12 years 11 months presented with the chief complaint of prominent, spaced upper teeth and was keen to overcome his dental problem.

2/33. Interdental osteotomy for immediate repositioning of dental-osseous elements.

    The treatment of crowded, poorly aligned, and spaced teeth is most commonly accomplished by orthodontic means. Interdental osteotomy offers a method for the immediate repositioning of dental-osseous elements that may serve as an aid to orthodontic treatment or be used as an independent procedure. The history of the procedure, its indications, planning considerations, surgical methods, and case results are presented.

3/33. The influence of transseptal fibers on incisor position and diastema formation.

    Transseptal fibers are a part of the gingival group of fibers of the periodontal membrane, and they are very tough and resistant. They form a chain from tooth to tooth which, provided that it remains intact and is sufficiently strong to resist displacing muscular pressures, will preserve the contacts between the teeth throughout the arch. If the continuity of the chain is interrupted, the balance of the forces acting upon the teeth on either side of the break is upset and considerable displacements can occur. Maxillary median diastemas are classified as "simple" or "persistent" according to their etiology, and an operation to clear the upper midline suture of transeptal fibers is described as an essential part of the treatment of persistent upper median diastema.

4/33. Oral rehabilitation of a hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia patient: a 6-year follow-up.

    This case report describes the oral rehabilitation of a female child with hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia over a 6-year time period. It demonstrates the need for periodic modification and replacement of a prosthesis, an orthodontic appliance, and a gingivoplasty. Although the initial treatment plan was considered to be a compromise due to limited cooperation, an improvement was observed in the patient's social behavior as a consequence of her dental treatment. The effects of unavoidable changes in the dental team over 6 years are also discussed.

5/33. An unusual case of talon cusp on geminated tooth.

    A rare case of talon cusp on geminated permanent central incisor is described. These developmental anomalies cause clinical problems including unsightly dental appearance, occlusal interference, displacement of the affected tooth, attrition, periodontopathy, irritation of the tongue, loss of space and malocclusion. Clinical and radiographic characteristics of these anomalies and modes of treatment are presented. Recognition of this condition and early diagnosis are important to avoid complications.

6/33. Interdisciplinary approaches to adult orthodontic care.

    The orthodontic treatment of adult patients is most frequently just one component of a more complex treatment involving several dental disciplines. This report discusses the potential problems related to the establishment of a treatment plan and the necessity for the patient's full acceptance, and understanding of the pros and cons related to different treatment approaches. In addition, the case report underlines the importance of a well-defined treatment goal. We have illustrated the team approach and the treatment principles in this combined perio-, ortho-, and prosthodontic patient.

7/33. Pathologic migration--spontaneous correction following periodontal therapy: a case report.

    Periodontal disease is often associated with pathologic migration, which becomes an esthetic concern. A 17-year-old girl developed increasing gaps among her maxillary incisors. She had gingival enlargement in the palatal maxillary anterior region. The central incisors had pathologically migrated, resulting in a 2-mm diastema. Periodontal treatment was planned and completed. Following periodontal treatment, there was "spontaneous" repositioning of the central incisors. The 6-month follow-up revealed no change or deterioration of the periodontal condition. The patient was referred for orthodontic closure of the remaining diastema between the central and lateral incisors.

8/33. Clinical management of ectodermal dysplasia with long term follow up: two case reports.

    The present study describes the characteristics and clinical management of two patients with ectodermal dysplasia with long term follow-up. Dental treatments depend on the severity of disorder, therefore, treatment varies according to the age, growth and development of the stomatognathic system of the patient. It is important that the patient and dentist understand continued monitoring for dental problems is necessary. This provides improved aesthetics, function and emotional development.

9/33. Management of severe hypodontia.

    Developmental absence of one or more teeth referred to as hypodontia is frequently encountered in dental practice, whereas severe hypodontia is a rare developmental dental anomaly. A case of severe hypodontia is presented. It was successfully treated with osseointegrated implants.

10/33. An interdisciplinary approach for improved esthetic results in the anterior maxilla.

    This clinical report describes an interdisciplinary (orthodontic, periodontic, and prosthodontic) approach for the coordinated treatment of a patient diagnosed with peg-shaped maxillary lateral incisors, diastemata, short clinical crowns, excessive gingival display, and orthodontic malocclusion. The patient's specific esthetic expectations for the anterior maxilla were successfully met through phased treatment, including orthodontic tooth movement, provisional restorations, periodontal surgery for lengthening of the clinical crown, porcelain laminate veneers, and direct composite restorations. Such coordinated interdisciplinary evaluation and treatment are necessary for improved esthetic results in maxillary anterior areas esthetically compromised in several aspects.
