Maxillary midline diastema is usually normal after the eruption of maxillary central incisors.
The appliance presented in this case report is aesthetic, convenient for the patient, and sufficient to close maxillary midline diastema, particularly when the patient does not want fixed orthodontic treatment.
The midline diastema: a review of its etiology and treatment.
2-7 Etiology of non-coincident dental midlines include premature loss of one primary canine, crowding and missing teeth.
Correction of asymmetric molar and canine relationship as well as making non-coincident dental midlines coincident with each other and with facial midline is always challenging as differential mechanics are always required to achieve desired results.
was centered on the middle of the remaining central incisor.
1 inches in length is technically a midline, is inserted using the proprietary Accelerated Seldinger Technique.
It increased patient comfort and nursing efficiency because PIVs often require multiple needlesticks, and the midline had a high rate of first-attempt success.
The objective of the present study was to determine the role of facial mid line as a guide for positioning maxillary dental midline for Prosthodontic patients during fabrication of prosthesis.
However patients having midline diastema orthodontic treatment or any cranio-facial anomaly were excluded.
For an adult patient with a severe skeletal Class III malocclu- sion and a midline deviation, combined surgical-orth- odontic therapy is often the treatment of choice be- cause of its satisfying outcome and stability.
Maxillary midline had shifted 3mm to the right and mandibular midline was shifted 3mm to the left side.
