Use of the AO mandibular
reconstruction plate for bridging of mandibular
nerve damage was noted in 20% cases treated with extra oral approach (group A).
Conclusions: Passive self-ligating system causes a signi1/4ucant increase in transverse width in both maxillary and mandibular
"We demonstrate that patient- and site-specific 3-D-printed short-segment templates can be created within the timeframe required for mandibular
fracture repair," the authors write.
Despite these advantages, SSO is underused for access to mandibular
lesions because of the potential for complications, such as unintended fractures or injury to the inferior alveolar nerve (IAN).
Extraction of teeth presenting taurodontism is usually complicated because of the change in furcation and volume of the tooth  and could lead to a risk of mandibular
fracture, especially in cases with tooth length extending to the basilar as in the current case.
in cases where the chin is well positioned at the beginning of the treatment [1, 7], pogonion kept in the same position to increase the lower facial height ; class II division II low-angle malocclusion uncorrected by orthodontic treatment alone, especially in patients that need advancement but have an excessive mental projection ; mandibular
vertical alveolar deficiency; anterior open bite; mandibular
ramus sagittal split osteotomy relapse; cases of condylar agenesis and hypoplasia; lateral open bite [4, 10]; and in cases that need a profound change in the mentolabial sulcus [1, 11].
After exemption was obtained from the institutional ethics review board, permanent mandibular
first molars were evaluated on CBCT scans Using non-probability consecutive sampling technique.
In future with improved knowledge of the decrease in height occurring in mandibular
residual ridge we can modify our treatment, within our financial constraints, to satisfy the patients' needs and improve their quality of life.
In the present case report, we introduce a nonextraction and nonsurgical treatment of Class III malocclusion using mini-screw-assisted mandibular
Morphometric and morphological studies regarding the mandibular
notch have been reviewed; however there is a paucity of literature regarding data in the South African population.
