Expanding on Transverse Diagnosis and Maxillary Expansion

Description:
Transverse dimension diagnosis and treatment is the base for sagital and vertical corrections. Most precise diagnosis on maxillary transverse deficiency is obtained through the CBCT. Miniscrew assisted rapid maxillary expansion (Marpe) or Surgical assisted maxillary expansion are the procedures of choice in skeletal mature patients presenting maxillary transverse deficiencies. Protocols with most common type of expander will be illustrated through clinical cases. Long term periodontal health and airways are addressed as part of this lecture.

Thanks Maurice. I use guides. I think Marianna placed them directly. The expander is left in place 6 to 10 months for retention purposes. Regards

Marianna & Miguel; Well done. Do you use a "guided" placement tool for TAD insertion into palate? Also, what is type of retention of the expansion once achieved in the Adult patient? Thanks Maurice

Dear Laurent, thank you for the questions. Tad-assisted expansion is technique sensitive procedure requiring 3D planning. If TADs fail during expansion the whole procedure may require revision, it is important to avoid this complication. Regarding retention it depends on the distraction gap, the larger expansion will require longer healing in average 6-12 months. Slow removable expansion protocols may be used in young kids where Dento alveolar expansion is indicated

Very interesting and informative. What is the approximate failure rate of palatal TAD’s and how do you deal with those failures in the active phase of expansion? What are your retention protocols and do they differ according to wether the case was surgically assisted or not ? Are there still indications for Schwartz type slow expansion on young children?

Stem Cells in Dentistry Premium Member Content

Stem Cells in Dentistry
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells, capable of renewing themselves, with the capacity to produce different cell types to regenerate missing tissues and treat diseases. Oral facial tissues have been identified as a source and therapeutic target for stem cells with clinical interest in dentistry. In this brief presentation, Dr Ana Paz presents stem cells and outlines the clinical applications of stem cells in dentistry. Although more clinical research in this topic is still needed, Dr Ana Paz believes that the main features of stem cells in the future of dentistry should be understood by clinicians.

Legal Considerations in the use of Cone Beam Computer Tomography Imaging
Cone beam computed tomography imaging represents a paradigm shift for enhancing diagnosis and treatment planning. Questions regarding cone beam computed tomography’s associated legal responsibility are addressed, including cone beam computed tomography necessity, recognition of pathosis in the scan’s entire volume, adequate training, informed consent and/or refusal and current court status of cone beam computed tomography. Judicious selection and prudent use of cone beam computed tomography technology to protect and promote patient safety and efficacious treatment complies with the standard of care.

Antimicrobial Effect of a Single Dose of Amoxicillin on the Oral Microbiota

Antimicrobial Effect of a Single Dose of Amoxicillin on the Oral Microbiota
Amoxicillin is commonly used in oral surgery for antimicrobial prophylaxis against surgical-site infection and bacteremia because of its effect on oral streptococci. The aim of this study was to determine whether amoxicillin reaches the break-point concentrations in saliva and has any effect on the salivary microbiota, colonizing bacteria on mucosal membranes and on the gingival crevice after a single dose of amoxicillin. A single dose given as prophylaxis to prevent a surgical-site infection results in a significant reducing effect on the oral streptococcal microflora in the gingival crevice and may have an impact on bacteria spreading into tissues and the bacteria of streptococci.
