  1. 1. Dentofacial morphology in Turner Syndrome karyotypes

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Sara Rizell; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; orthodontics; Turner syndrome; genetics; karyotype; geno-phanotype correlation; anthropometrics; craniofacial morphology; dental arch; dental crown width; enamel; primary teeth; elemental composition;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to study dentofacial morphology in Turner syndrome (TS) versus controls and the influence hereupon from karyotype. One hundred thirty two TS females (5-66 years of age), from Göteborg, Uppsala and Umeå were participating. READ MORE

  2. 2. Masticatory retraining effect on masseter muscle, facial morphology and alveolar bone structure in the adult rat

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Anna Ödman; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adult; rat; craniofacial morphology; alveolar trabecular bone; MYH; mandible; masticatory function;

    Abstract : The aim of this series of investigations was to study the effect of masticatory muscle retraining in adult rats with an earlier reduced masticatory muscle function on the craniofacial morphology, on the internal alveolar bone structure and on the deep masseter muscle. Material and Methods: Sixty young male rats received soft diet for a prolonged period, so that the animals developed weak masticatory muscles. READ MORE

  3. 3. Dynamic skull reshaping for sagittal craniosynostosis

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Craniosynostosis; Sagittal synostosis; Plastic surgery; Craniofacial; surgery; Spring mediated cranioplasty; Modified pi-plasty; procedure; Roentgencephalometry.;

    Abstract : Objectives: The present investigation was aimed at expanding the knowledge base regarding the skull morphology in sagittal craniosynostosis and at assessing the safety and efficacy of two dynamic cranioplasty procedures, the modified pi-plasty procedure and the spring-mediated cranioplasty. Methods: The patient population consisted of children with non-syndromic sagittal craniosynostosis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sleep Disordered Breathing and Orofacial Morphology in Relation to Adenotonsillar Surgery Development from 4-12 Years in a Community Based Cohort

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Britta Tideström Löfstrand; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]

    Abstract : Objective: To follow a cohort of children from age 4-6-12 with respect to sleep disordered breathing (SDB) and orofacial development. Questionnaires were completed about sleep, snoring, apneas, enuresis, sucking habits, and adenotonsillar surgery and, from age 12, about allergies, asthma, and general health. READ MORE

  5. 5. Premature birth - studies on orthodontic treatment need, craniofacial morphology and function

    University dissertation from Faculty of Odontology, Malmö University

    Author : Liselotte Paulsson; Malmö University.; [2009]
    Keywords : ODONTOLOGY Orthodontics; ODONTOLOGI Ortodonti; ODONTOLOGY Paedodontics; ODONTOLOGI Pedodonti; Medicine;

    Abstract : A series of studies have been initiated implying a unique opportunity to evaluate and compare malocclusion traits, orthodontic treatment need, craniofacial morphology, mandibular function, signs and symptoms of temporomandibular disorders (TMD) and headache between extremely preterm (EPT; born before the 29th gestational week) and very preterm (VPT; born in gestational week 29-32) and full-term born children. This thesis was based on four studies: Paper I. READ MORE
