    Abstract : Enkelsidigt korsbett är en av de vanligaste bettavvikelserna i växel-bettet, dvs. i de åldrar då barnets tänder byts ut från mjölktänder till permanenta tänder. Korsbett innebär att överkäkens och un-derkäkens bredd inte passar ihop när man biter samman käkarna. READ MORE

    Abstract : In 2005 the Swedish Council on Health Technology Assessment (SBU), in a systematic review, Malocclusions and Orthodontic Treatment in a Health Perspective, concluded that there were low or contradicted evidence for an association between orthodontic treatment and the risks for negative side effects. The aims of this study was to evaluate the perception of Greek and Swedish orthodontic practitioners view on orthodontically induced root resorption (OIRR), to investigate how root resorption is handled in a large orthodontic clinic and to prospectively study and correlate the prevalence and severity of root resorption seen after an initial treatment period and at the end of treatment, in a cohort of patients treated with fixed appliance.

  4. 4. Masticatory function and temporomandibular disorders in patients with dentofacial deformities : studies before and after orthodontic and orthognathic treatment

    Abstract : Ca 30 % av Sveriges befolkning genomgår någon gång i livet behandling med tandreglering. I de fall där bettavvikelsen är mer omfattande är enbart tandreglering inte tillräckligt för att uppnå ett bra bett. Istället kombinerar man tandregleringen med en kirurgisk förflyttning av käkarna s.k. READ MORE

  5. 5. Fixed or removable appliance for early orthodontic treatment of functional anterior crossbite : evidence-based evaluations of success rate of interventions, treatment stability, cost-effectiveness and patients perceptions

    Abstract : Anterior crossbite with functional shift also called pseudo Class III isa malocclusion in which the incisal edges of one or more maxillaryincisors occlude with the incisal edges of the mandibular incisorsin centric relationship: the mandible and mandibular incisors arethen guided anteriorly in central occlusion resulting in an anteriorcrossbite.Early correction, at the mixed dentition stage, is recommended,in order to avoid a compromising dentofacial condition whichcould result in the development of a true Class III malocclusionand temporomandibular symptoms.
