Abstract

This study was undertaken to design the relationship between different orthodontic cases and amount of bone level loss. The study sample consisted of 72 male students (20–23 years old) classified into 3 groups: Control group with normal overjet and overbite, overjet group with at least 8 mm, and overbite group with at least 6 mm. The results showed a significant reduction of bone height in upper and lower incisors in malocclusion group at significant level 0.01 if it is compared with normal group bone level.

Abstract

This is the first study carried out in Iraq to determine the reliability of using new technique to asses inclination of lower permanent teeth as an indicator to asses position of the teeth before and after orthodontic treatment with orthodontic treatment with orthopantomograph.A total (259) students select randomly from Mosul university only (34) students (16 males, 18 females) between (18-25 years old) were of Iraqi origin who fulfilled the criteria of the sample. We found no significant differences (95% confidence level) of mean values of inclination of the teeth between male and female, with a significant difference between right and left sides for both sexes.

Abstract

Aims: This study aimed to assess the relationship between upper and lower incisors and soft tissue fa-cial profile. Materials and methods: The sample included forty eight Iraqi adults (22 men, 26 women) with Class I normal occlusion. Seven soft tissue parameters and six skeletal and incisal parameters were measured on lateral cephalometric radiographs. The data were analyzed using independent sample t test and Pearson correlation analysis. Results: sexual dimorphism was reported only for soft tissue convexity angle and interlabial angle. The results also showed correlation between incisor parameters and soft tissue parameters. Lower incisor inclination showed negative correlation with soft tissue pro-file angle for male and total samples. While both upper and lower incisors positions showed positive correlation with upper lip/NP angle and soft tissue pogonion/NP distance. Positive correlation was no-ticed between interincisal angle and soft tissue profile convexity angle for the total sample. Conclu-sions: upper and lower incisors are correlated to the overlying soft tissue structures. This correlation was mostly significant for the upper lip vermilion, upper lip base and tip of the nose.

Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate the antifungal effectof peppermint extract as mouth rinse during orthodontic treatment.Thirty patients (11 males and 19 females) who wear orthodonticappliances and instructed to use chlorhexidine asmouth rinse (8 patients); Mentha piperita extract (10 patients)or left to care of their teeth without any mouth rinse (12 patients);mean number of Candida albicans colonies recoveredfrom anterior surface at three intervals (Time 0: Before wearingthe appliance; time 1: After 7 days and time 2: After 1month) was 48.8, 144.3, 158.9 for the control group; 132.9,125.4, 147.9 for the peppermint group and 72, 105.8 and130.8 for the chlorhexidine group.The mean number of Candida albicans colonies fromthe posterior surface at the different intervals was 87.4, 136.8,159.5; 121.3, 84, 34.6 and 78.5, 91.25, 91 for control, peppermintand chlorhexidine groups respectively. The use of thepeppermint extract decreases the number of Candida albicanssignificantly at the posterior surfaces
