Date: April 2020. Source: American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, Volume 157, Issue 4, Pages 481-489.e2. Highlights: • Forsus fatigue-resistant devices did not affect sagittal or vertical planes in postpeak patients. • Changes in maxilla and mandible were dentoalveolar only. • Significant differences in soft-tissue profiles in postpeak patients were not found. Introduction: This…

Evaluation of Changes in Nasal Projection After Surgically Assisted Rapid Maxillary Expansion With 3dMDface System. MH Büyükçavuş, Y Findik, T Baykul.

Date: April 2020. Source: The Journal of Craniofacial Surgery. DOI: 10.1097/scs.0000000000006436. Abstract: The most appropriate treatment option for maxillary expansion in adulthood due to increased cyanosis in sutures is surgically assisted maxillary expansion (SARME). Skeletal and dental changes are observed with SARME. Three-dimensional imaging techniques are gaining importance with the developing technology in evaluating the…

3D soft‐tissue evaluation of a Class III treatment with rapid maxillary expander and face mask in pre‐pubertal phase – A retrospective cohort study. BK Đokić, A Zhurov, S Richmond et al.

Date: March 2020. Source: Orthodontic & Craniofacial Research, https://doi.org/10.1111/ocr.12373. Objective: The aim of this prospective controlled study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the rapid maxillary expander (RME) and face mask treatment using three‐dimensional soft‐tissue facial characteristics of pre‐pubertal Class III children. Setting and Sample Population: CLIII and non‐CLIII groups, both of 32 white children…

Three-Dimensional Facial Imaging for the Diagnosis of Complex Soft Tissue Secondary to Craniofacial Trauma. L Zou, S Holmes.

Date: March 2020. Source: Atlas of Operative Maxillofacial Trauma Surgery, pp 101-105, Springer, London. Abstract: Facial scanning is a relatively recent imaging modality that has been evolving over the past 30 years. It provides valid and reliable three-dimensional (3D) imaging. 3D facial images also provide objective quantifications of facial changes. Image capturing uses a noncontact…

Reproducibility of Natural Head Position assessed with stereophotogrammetry. G Jakobsone, V Vuollo, P Pirttiniemi.

Date: February 2020. Source: Orthodontics & Craniofacial Research 23(1):66-71. doi: 10.1111/ocr.12344. Objective: The aim of this study was to assess the stability of Natural Head Position (NHP) over time using the 3dMDface System. Setting and Sample Population: This was an experimental study. Three-dimensional facial images of 40 students were captured on two different occasions, with…

Craniofacial Asymmetry from One to Three Years of Age: A Prospective Cohort Study with 3D Imaging. AM Launonen, V Vuollo, H Aarnivala, et al.

Date: December 2019. Source: Journal of Clinical Medicine, 9, 70; doi:10.3390/jcm9010070. Abstract: Deformational plagiocephaly (DP) is considered a risk factor for facial asymmetry. This cohort-based, prospective, follow-up study used three-dimensional (3D) stereophotogrammetry to assess the development of facial asymmetry in a normal birth cohort and to investigate the impact of DP on facial asymmetry for…

Materials and Methods: Three-dimensional images were captured and the total…

Exploring the midline soft tissue surface changes from 12 to 15 years of age in three distinct country population cohorts. S Richmond, AI Zhurov, ABM Ali, P Pirttiniemi, T Heikkinen, V Harila, S Silinevica, G Jakobsone, I Urtane.

Date: November 2019. Source: European Journal of Orthodontics, https://doi.org/10.1093/ejo/cjz080. Introduction: Several studies have highlighted differences in the facial features in a White European population. Genetics appear to have a major influence on normal facial variation, and environmental factors are likely to have minor influences on face shape directly or through epigenetic mechanisms. Aim: The aim…
