Comparison of Skeletal and Dental Changes Obtained from a Tooth-Borne Maxillary Expansion Appliance Compared to the Damon System Assessed Through a Digital Volumetric ImagingDownload
Introduction: The purpose of this thesis was to evaluate and compare dental and skeletal changes associated with the Damon and Rapid Maxillary Expander (RME) expansion over 6 months using a Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT). Methods: A sample of 82 patients were randomly allocated to either...
Development and Validation of Semi-automatic Segmentation Technique of Mandibular Condyles from CBCT imagesDownload
Objectives: Mandibular condyle contains an important growth site that contributes to the eventual anteroposterior position of the mandible, and is a crucial component in establishing normal temporomandibular function. To accurately assess the change in the volume and morphology of the mandibular...
Orthodontic Simulation of Forces and Moments Using Space Generation Mechanics with a Lingual Bracket SystemDownload
Objectives: Evaluation of the three dimensional (3D) forces and moments exerted by lingual orthodontic brackets in a simulated dental arch with crowded teeth. Statistical and mechanical analysis of the forces and moments between two different treatment mechanics (NiTi coil springs and archwire...
