1/23. Treatment of an impacted dilacerated maxillary central incisor.

    Impacted incisor With Dilaceration refers to a dental deformity characterized by an angulation between crown and root causing noneruption of the incisor. Surgical extraction used to be the first choice in treating the severely dilacerated incisor. In this article, a horizontally impacted and dilacerated maxillary central incisor was diagnosed radiographically. By combining two stages of the crown exposure surgery with light force orthodontic traction, the impacted dilacerated incisor was successfully moved into proper position. However, long-term monitoring of the stability and periodontal health is critical after orthodontic traction.

2/23. cleft lip and palate management with maxillary expansion and space opening for a single tooth implant.

    An adult Class I malocclusion with a unilateral cleft lip and palate is presented. The maxillary transverse deficiency was managed with orthopedic expansion and the missing lateral incisor with space opening, bone grafting, and single tooth implant. The mild maxillary retrognathia and deficient lip support was managed with dental compensation.

3/23. Orthodontic treatment of a patient with multiple supernumerary teeth and mental retardation.

    Supernumerary teeth may lead to impaction or ectopic eruption of maxillary incisors, crowding, oronasal fistula, follicular cyst, migration of adjacent teeth and root resorption. In this presentation, an 11-year-old male patient with 4 supernumerary teeth in the maxillary anterior region and a slight mental retardation problem will be presented. After extraction of the supernumerary teeth, the large space created by distal migration of central incisors was closed by orthodontic treatment. Although initial patient compliance was weak and caused difficulties in the course of treatment, orthodontic treatment was completed successfully.

4/23. Treatment of a Class I malocclusion with a carious mandibular incisor and no Bolton discrepancy.

    Occasionally orthodontists must plan treatment for a patient with extensive caries or a traumatic injury to one mandibular incisor. If the patient has a Bolton discrepancy, one treatment option could involve extraction of the affected mandibular incisor. However, if the patient does not have a Bolton discrepancy and a mandibular incisor is extracted, the treatment becomes more complicated. This case report will present and discuss the ramifications of extracting one mandibular incisor in a patient without an anterior tooth-size discrepancy. The CDABO Student Case Selection Committee chose this case for publication.

5/23. Orthodontic correction of an ectopic mandibular first permanent molar: a case report.

    Ectopic eruption of mandibular first molar is a rare clinical problem. It is one result of an improper balance in the forces of growth and eruption. A case of ectopic eruption of the mandibular first permanent molar is described and the technique for repositioning it is showed.

6/23. Rapid orthodontics with alveolar reshaping: two case reports of decrowding.

    Two case reports demonstrate a new orthodontic method that offers short treatment times and the ability to simultaneously reshape and increase the buccolingual thickness of the supporting alveolar bone. A 24-year-old man with a Class I severely crowded malocclusion and an overly constricted maxilla with concomitant posterior crossbites and a 17-year-old female with a Class I moderately to severely crowded malocclusion requested shortened orthodontic treatment times. This new surgery technique included buccal and lingual full-thickness flaps, selective partial decortication of the cortical plates, concomitant bone grafting/augmentation, and primary flap closure. Following the surgery, orthodontic adjustments were made approximately every 2 weeks. From bracketing to debracketing, both cases were completed in approximately 6 months and 2 weeks. Posttreatment evaluation of both patients revealed good results. At approximately 15 months following surgery in one patient, a full-thickness flap was again reflected. Visual examination revealed good maintenance of the height of the alveolar crest and an increased thickness in the buccal bone. The canine and premolars in this area were expanded buccally by more than 3 mm, and yet there had actually been an increase in the buccolingual thickness of the overlying buccal bone. Additionally, a preexisting bony fenestration buccal of the root of the first premolar was covered. Both of these findings lend credence to the incorporation of the bone augmentation procedure into the corticotomy surgery because this made it possible to complete the orthodontic treatment with a more intact periodontium. The rapid expansive tooth movements with no significant apical root resorption may be attributed to the osteoclastic or catabolic phase of the regional acceleratory phenomenon. Instead of bony "block" movement or resorption/apposition, the degree of demineralization/remineralization might be a more accurate explanation of what occurs in the alveolar bone during physiologic tooth movement in these patients.

7/23. Treatment of a Class I crowded malocclusion with an ankylosed maxillary central incisor.

    This article describes a Class I crowded malocclusion with an ankylosed maxillary central incisor that was in infraocclusion and labially displaced. Various treatment alternatives are discussed, and the option of extracting the ankylosed tooth followed by space closure with lateral incisor substitution is developed.

8/23. Treatment of a patient with a crowded Class I malocclusion and a congenitally missing mandibular incisor.

    This case report describes the management of maxillary and mandibular crowding in a patient with facial esthetic concerns and a tooth-size discrepancy due to a missing mandibular central incisor. The treatment included extracting the remaining mandibular central incisor and the 2 maxillary first premolars. The mandibular canines were repositioned to substitute for lateral incisors, and the mandibular premolars were used as canines.

9/23. Multiple supernumerary teeth in association with malocclusion: report of two cases.

    Although multiple supernumerary teeth without any associated syndromes are rare, their occurrence can create a variety of clinical problems such as derangement of the occlusion, prevention of eruption of permanent teeth, damage to adjacent teeth, cystic degeneration and root resorption. Hence, clinical and radiographic evaluation of patients should always be thorough in order to detect their presence. Furthermore, because the clinical management of multiple supernumerary teeth poses a great challenge to clinicians, timely, appropriate consultation and interdisciplinary approach to treatment is extremely important. We report two cases, a 14 year-old boy with eight and a 13-year-old girl with seven supernumerary teeth not associated with syndromes. In the boy, the teeth were bilaterally distributed in all quadrants in the premolar regions, and in the girl they were distributed bilaterally in the premolar regions in the mandible and bilaterally distal to the upper third molars. The clinical implications and management are discussed.

10/23. Management of congenitally missing second premolars with orthodontics and single-tooth implants.

    This article describes the treatment of an adolescent girl who was congenitally missing all 4 second premolars and had a retained mandibular second primary molar. Various treatment alternatives are discussed, and the final treatment plan of space opening for 3 implants and space closure of the maxillary left second premolar site is presented.
