    ABSTRACT: First-line surgery offers an additional option in our orthodontic treatment arsenal. Unlike the classic three-stage orthodontic-surgical protocol, it aims to correct the skeletal discrepancies during stage one in order to restore a favorable functional environment and enable orthodontic occlusal correction during a second stage. In some cases of maxilla-mandibular malformation, and for specific indications, it involves eliminating presurgical orthodontic preparation or reducing it to a minimum. From the orthodontic point of view, it reduces overall treatment time, facilitates treatment following surgery and speeds up tooth displacement. On the patient's side, it makes for rapid esthetic improvement and a radically enhanced quality of life. The use of anchorage devices, surgical splints or set-ups makes it possible to offset the drawbacks of this technique such as postsurgical occlusal instability or restrictive treatment planning. © EDP Sciences, SFODF, 2015.

    ABSTRACT: The temporomandibular joints function in synergy with the dental occlusion within the manducatory system. Orthodontists and surgeons must take into account the condylar position since any problem related to positioning of the condyle could result in occlusal disorders including relapse and the risk of occurrence, decompensation or worsening of temporomandibular dysfunction. We wanted to answer three questions: What is the position of the condyle following orthognathic surgery? What benefit is there in repositioning the condyle? What means are available to check condylar position? Finally, in the light of the answers, we describe an innovative occlusal and condylar positioning device for mandibular osteotomies based on computer-assisted surgical planning techniques. It consists of a three-dimensional, printed guide enabling surgeons to position the condyles as desired. It is accurate, simple, reproducible, independent of operator experience as well as rapid and economical. © EDP Sciences, SFODF, 2015.

    ABSTRACT: Being interested in dento-facial deformities for a surgeon is opening up on the orthodontic world and vice versa. Orthodontic-surgical collaboration is unavoidable and represents a real synergy. After setting out the various progresses interesting both disciplines, we will insist on the close collaboration that is meant to rule our specialties. To illustrate this cooperation, we will describe the treatment protocol of a class II with a hyperdivergent skeletal pattern. © EDP Sciences, SFODF, 2015.

    ABSTRACT: Orthognathic surgery tends to grow in recent years. However, it is often a confusing and frightening notion in the minds of many patients. Orthodontists, on their sides, are reluctant to offer it because they are not comfortable with the action to be taken. How to establish a relationship of trust with a patient? What are their issues? How gently announce the surgery? How to coordinate multidisciplinary approach? Questions that the author attempts to shed light on. He delivers tools for detailed and thorough preoperative planning, always with the objective of professional guidance of the patient. The orthodontist will thus be better prepared to deal with the subject of safely orthognathic surgery. © EDP Sciences, SFODF, 2015.

    ABSTRACT: Can we hope to dispense with muscle and function management in orthodontic and orthodonto-surgical treatment plans? How can the specialized physiotherapist assist, facilitate and stabilize the work done by the orthodontist and maxillo-facial surgeon and help avoid relapses? Treatment aims to achieve dental alignment and occlusal balance in direct association with balance of the tongue muscles, cutaneous muscles, masticatory and postural muscles and functions in the orofacial region. Restoration of balance between agonist and antagonist muscles is achieved by relaxing contracted muscles and by gradually building up weak muscle tone. If effective and lasting treatment results are to be obtained, active patient participation is mandatory during rehabilitation of oro-maxillo-facial disorders and must encompass the tongue, lips, cheeks, masticatory system, ventilation and general posture as well as management of the parafunctions. These procedures are essential in dentofacial orthopedic treatment of both children and adults. Practical cases will be used to demonstrate the contribution that myofunctional rehabilitation can make. Regarding natural functions, very satisfactory results are obtained provided patients do daily muscle exercises and day-long training in the correct postures and practical drills they have been taught over a period of at least six months and under the supervision of the physiotherapist. © EDP Sciences, SFODF, 2015.

    ABSTRACT: The majority of adult patients who consult for smile reconstruction or for functional problems can be satisfied by benefitting from orthodontic treatment. This treatment, whatever the orthodontic technique, is carried out following the establishment of a diagnosis and treatment plan taking into account some restrictions of a prosthetic, periodontal or financial nature. There are, however, situations in which the esthetic and functional balance is severely affected or quite simply impossible to correct without modifying the bone structures. Orthognathic surgery is essential in such cases. In this article we will deal in particular with three frequently encountered situations: openbite, Class III and finally Class II skeletal discrepancies. The aim will be to try to define the interest that these so-called ortho-surgical treatments represent and at the same time consider the alternatives. © EDP Sciences, SFODF, 2015.

    ABSTRACT: The contribution of the segmental osteotomies in the ortho-surgical protocols is no longer to demonstrate and found a new lease of life thanks to the combination with the bone distraction techniques. The osteotomy of Köle, initially described to close infraclusies, and then used to level very marked curves of Spee has more recently been used to correct anterior crowding. This support is therefore aimed at patients with an incisor and canine Class 2 but molar Class 1 with an isolated mandibular footprint. With minimal orthodontic preparation we can create in two weeks bilateral diastemas that will then be used to align the incisivocanin crowding without stripping or bicuspid extractions. Dental orthodontic movements can be resumed one month after the end of the distraction. This technique is therefore likely to avoid bicuspid extraction and replace some sagittal osteotomy advancement by correction of the overjet. It also helps to correct a incisors labial or lingual tipping playing on differential activation of the cylinders and the distractor. This segmental surgery can be combined with Le Fort 1 surgeries with correction of the transverse and associated meanings, but in a second time, to a mandibular advancement and/or a genioplasty. © EDP Sciences, SFODF, 2015.

    ABSTRACT: An adequate orthodontic preparation is a key to success of every orthognatic surgery. Therefore, the detection and the correction of the existing dentoalveolar compensation tend to favor the correction of the skeletal defects. The pre-surgical orthodontic goals have to be defined at the beginning of the treatment, thus, not always achieving a complete leveling of the arches, nor a final space closure and ideal intercuspation. The orthodontic preparation aims to guide the surgical skeletal displacements. Many dentoalveolar compensations can be identified as specific to different types of malocclusion. Accordingly, an adequate individualized planning and a good coordination between both orthodontist and surgeon, are of a major importance, in order to avoid unexpected traps during orthodontic pre-surgical preparation. © EDP Sciences, SFODF, 2015.

    ABSTRACT: Surgical management of transverse discrepancies is a special field of orthodontic treatment and of orthognathic surgery. Long-term stability is often challenging despite the various available methods of treatment. We present the physiopathological process behind this defect in transverse growth and propose a decision tree. © EDP Sciences, SFODF, 2015.

    ABSTRACT: Regular faces are beautiful because they are expressive and arouse an interest in the observer due to the variations in their shape, their surface appearance and their movements. The sensitivity of the eye of the beholder is correlated to the expressivity of the face and of the dentition. Better, however, to avoid any indication of aggression that could foreshadow the senescence of the face.

    ABSTRACT: The finishing and detailing phase, the last stage of active orthodontic treatment, makes it possible to perfect the occlusion, by adhering to criteria defined by various authors and to improve the esthetic result, while achieving the treatment objectives made during the pre-planning phase. The reliability of end of treatment results cannot be ensured without an initial individualized analysis of the risk factors for relapse specific to each patient. It is only after this analysis, that the orthodontist will be able to determine how to comply with these criteria for stability, common in any treatment, and to individually choose and implement reliable procedures. When planning for stability as the treatment objective, orthodontic patients are able to achieve stable alignment. This course of action is the necessary process to help ensure equilibrium and alignment. Eight different methods of alignment, already frequently discussed in the literature, will be described and analyzed in this paper.

    ABSTRACT: The objective of orthognathic surgery is the repositioning of the osseous bases of the jaws. Its consequences are both aesthetic and functional. As adults are increasingly concerned with appearance, orthognathic surgery is today, more than ever, a close collaboration between the orthodontist, surgeon and general dentist. The whole team must be capable of coordinating its approach with an aesthetic objective. For the surgeon, a perfect knowledge of complementary techniques (rhinoplasty, bone grafts, plastic surgery of the face, lipostructure or fillers) makes orthognathic surgery a completely separate surgical speciality. The aim of this article is to establish the philosophy underlying this type of treatment and define relevant fundamental aspects. We propose an esthetic "extra-oral" clinical approach not focused on occlusal anomalies but on classification of tooth positional abnormalities in the smile and the therapeutic options that we have for placing teeth in correct positions in the smile.

    ABSTRACT: There have been numerous studies of facial esthetics, but few have benefited from the new techniques provided by 3D imaging. The aim of this study is to determine which are the most crucial cephalometric criteria for facial esthetics by identifying the strongest correlations between the esthetic rating and 3D Cephalometric values, the Cepha 3Dt. A group of 91 subjects (from 10 to 60 years of age) was rated by a jury of 50 randomly selected judges (from 12 to 65 years of age) using an analog scale. We then looked for the most important correlations between the esthetic ratings and the tridimensional cephalometric values by using 3D Cephalometric Analysis on a global sample, and on Class II and Class III sub-samples. Facial esthetics therefore appeared to be especially linked to: anterior-posterior dimension, maxillo-mandibular disharmony, relationships between the anterior areas (alveolar and basal), the alveolar region has a greater impact than the basal area on facial architecture. In the Class II group, sagittal discrepancies and mandibular divergence have an equal impact on the assessment of facial esthetics.

    ABSTRACT: Patient demand for invisible esthetic orthodontic appliances is steadily increasing. Two types of orthodontic appliances have a high rate of patient acceptance. The lingual technique has continually evolved by offering both prefabricated brackets or custom-made brackets. The various techniques have been improved over time, and the results are better than ever. Thermoplastic aligners are an alternative to lingual devices and their use is rapidly growing. Their specific properties make it easier to assess their indications and limitations. A review of the literature, the development of these systems and a presentation of some clinical examples of treated cases will help us to provide some of the basics for understanding each of these two types of appliances and to demonstrate the advantages and disadvantages of each system.

    ABSTRACT: The Psychosocial Impact of Dental Aesthetics Questionnaire (PIDAQ) is a tool developed and validated to specifically assess subject's quality of life related to orthodontic anomalies. The aims of the present study were to translate and culturally adapt the PIDAQ's native English version into French, and to test the psychometric characteristics of the version thereby obtained. Toward these ends, the PIDAQ's original English version was translated into French and back-translated into English following the prescribed guidelines. Each of the versions obtained from the translation process was further subjected to a committee review. The final French version which is named QIPEO underwent an analysis of psychometric properties on a sample of 42 subjects (33 females and 9 males, aged 24.60 ± 8.66 years). Internal consistency was good with Cronbach ff coefficients ranging from 0.67 for "aesthetic concerns" to 0.87 for "social impact". The reproducibility of the responses given by 14 subjects after 15 days interval was correct with intraclass coefficients ranging from 0.72 for "social impact" to 0.90 for "aesthetic concerns". Furthermore, the different subscales of the French version of the PIDAQ showed excellent correlation with the perception of aesthetics and fairly good correlation with self-perception of orthodontic treatment need. Definite need for orthodontic treatment, as assessed normatively by the IOTN, was significantly associated with lower scores of "self-confidence" and higher scores of "social impact", "psychological impact" and "aesthetic concerns". Overall, the French version of the PIDAQ was shown to be reliable and has some validity for use in this population. Further studies including a larger sample size is recommended to reassess the validation and the responsiveness of this French version.
