    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: Although beauty is increasingly becoming a right mostly as it relates to objects, people are now beginning to make a new demand - the right to personal beauty: the right to live in and surrounded by beauty and the right to be beautiful.

    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.

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this paper is to study the corrosion resistance of orthodontic wires made of different alloys (stainless steel, chrome-cobalt, nickel-titanium and β-titanium) and for the same alloy from different vendors (GAC(®), RMO(®), 3M(®) and ORMCO(®)). Different electrochemical techniques (corrosion potential monitoring as a function of immersion time, current-potential curves, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS)) were used. The wires' resistance to corrosion was measured and compared with the surface condition, assessed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Using the recorded data, a rating system based on the corrosion resistance of orthodontic wires was developed. The comparison of these data with the results of SEM shows that the surface chemical composition plays a primary role in the electrochemical behavior of the orthodontic wires and, unlike surface defects, is a key parameter for the corrosion resistance of the alloy.

    ABSTRACT: Ankylosed anterior teeth are associated with infraclusion and can lead to a concomitant significant esthetic defect. After a review of the techniques used move these teeth into the arch, this article describes a new technique to restore occlusion and improve esthetics, or to prepare the case for either a prosthetic or implant treatment, Orthodontic Bone Stretching (OBS). This technic combines partial corticotomy and orthodontic treatment and produces bone stretching. After 8 to 12 weeks of force application, the ankylosed teeth are repositioned into occlusion or, if extraction is necessary, the bone crest is at a level consistent with a prosthetic or implant treatment. OBS technique can be adapted to implant infraclusion, or the vertical regeneration of atrophied ridge.

    ABSTRACT: Recently l recalled the error in the principle which makes cephalometric analysis unsuitable for orthodontic diagnosis. Now, three methods of analysis have been published precisely conceived in order to avoid this error. Will cephalometric analysis succeed in its search for the truth?

    ABSTRACT: Maxillofacial rehabilitation is often recommended in order to avoid a recurrence of orthodontic problems. Like all rehabilitation, the goal is to increase awareness of erroneous postures and praxis to the patients and demonstrate the correct ones. This is done by increasing muscular and articulatory ability and most importantly repeating these processes until they become automatic. It is this automatism which is the most lengthy and difficult goal to attain. Our intervention involves many aspects : the tongue (at rest, and during deglutition and phonation), the platysma, breathing, the temporal-mandibular joints, bad habits, and posture. The last session consists of verifying that the automatisms have been fully acquired.
