    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

    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Unilateral cleft lip and palate; cleft palate; cleft size; maxillary arch dimensions; crossbite; facial growth; nasal function; Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery; Käkkirurgi;

    Abstract : The wide variation in infant maxillary morphology and cleft size of children with unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) and isolated cleft palate (CP) raise concerns about their possible influences on treatment outcome. The studies in this thesis aimed to investigate the relation between cleft size in infancy and crossbite at 5 years of age (Paper I); the impact of primary surgery on cleft size and maxillary arch dimensions from infancy to 5 years of age (Paper II); associations between cleft size, maxillary arch dimensions and facial growth in both UCLP and CP children (Paper III); and, to evaluate the relation between infant cleft size and nasal airway size and function in adults treated for UCLP (Paper IV).

  3. 3. Early correction of unilateral posterior crossbite : evidence-based evaluations of oral health related quality of life, cost-effectiveness and 3D treatment effects

    Author : Ola Sollenius; Malmö universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Malocclusion;

    Abstract : Unilateral posterior crossbite (UPC) with functional shift is one ofthe most common malocclusions in mixed dentition.

    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.
