LEZIONE FAD Prof.ssa Omur Polat Ozsoy

Nella giornata di martedì 1 Aprile ’14 ci è venuta a trovare la Prof.ssa Omur Polat Ozsoy direttamente dalla Turchia. Ci ha intrattenuti con una bellissima lezione, sui seguenti argomenti:

1. Espansione mascellare

2. Trattamento dell’agenesia degli incisivi laterali

3. Movimento accellerato dei denti

4. Trattamento chirurgico-ortodontico di casi complessi

La lezione, trasmessa anche in FAD, ha catturato l’attenzione degli specializzandi che hanno partecipato attivamente con domande di approfondimento sui topics trattati.

Dopo la conferenza, la Prof.ssa si è fermata con noi, per una piacevole visita al reparto osservando gli studenti a lavoro.

Association of the mid-palatal suture morphology to the age and to its density: A CBCT retrospective comparative observational study

Int Orthod. 2021 Jun;19(2):235-242. doi: 10.1016/j.ortho.2021.03.002. Epub 2021 Mar 27. ABSTRACT OBJECTIVE: The twofold aim of the present investigation was to: 1. evaluate the degree of mid-palatal suture (MPS) maturation via CBCT in relation to patient age, and 2. to determine whether there was a correlation between quantitative (i.e., suture density) and qualitative (i.e., suture…


Resolution of lower second molar impaction through miniscrew-supported biomechanics: A proposal for a simplified classification

Int Orthod. 2021 Dec;19(4):697-706. doi: 10.1016/j.ortho.2021.09.008. Epub 2021 Oct 22. ABSTRACT Two case reports are presented showing how the strategic use of skeletal anchorage via orthodontic miniscrews manages to solve the complex problems of orthodontic disimpaction of second mandibular molars with excellent anchorage control and reduction of the adverse effects common to the use of…


Temporal relationship between sleep-time masseter muscle activity and apnea-hypopnea events: A pilot study

J Oral Rehabil. 2022 Jan;49(1):47-53. doi: 10.1111/joor.13271. Epub 2021 Nov 15. ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common sleep disorder due mainly to peripheral causes, characterized by repeated episodes of obstruction of the upper airways, associated with arousals and snoring. Sleep bruxism (SB) is a masticatory muscle activity during sleep that is…


Comparative analysis of passive play and torque expression in self-ligating and traditional lingual brackets

J Orofac Orthop. 2022 Jan;83(1):13-22. doi: 10.1007/s00056-021-00314-1. Epub 2021 Jun 29. ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to determine and compare the play and torque expression of self-ligating and conventionally ligated lingual brackets, with square and rectangular slots, when engaged with archwires of different size, cross section and material. METHODS: Passive play and…


Non-surgical adult class II high-angle treatment with an invisible appliance: A case report

Int Orthod. 2022 Jan 15:100605. doi: 10.1016/j.ortho.2021.100605. Online ahead of print. ABSTRACT This case report describes the complex situation of a young adult Class II hyperdivergent patient treated by premolar extraction with a straight wire lingual appliance. Despite the patient’s refusal to undergo surgical treatment, the dual goals of ideal occlusal relationship and profile improvement…


Space closure by miniscrew-assisted mesialization of an upper third molar and partial vestibular fixed appliance: A case report

Int Orthod. 2022 Jan 7:100602. doi: 10.1016/j.ortho.2021.100602. Online ahead of print. ABSTRACT This case report demonstrates how the use of skeletal anchorage and appropriate orthodontic biomechanics can be used to resolve even complex cases, reducing unwanted dental movements and allowing the use of a partial vestibular appliance. It describes the complete mesialization of the left…
