Aim: Purpose of our research was to match the quantity of crown inclination achieved with a pre-adjusted edgewise appliance utilizing Roth versus MBT prescription. Methodology: Forty sets of posttreatment study models from patients treated employing a preadjusted edgewise appliance (20 Roth and 20 MBT) were selected using predetermined inclusion and exclusion criteria. The models were masked and laser-scanned, and therefore the final crown inclinations were assessed from the digital images. A two-way analysis of variance was undertaken with the variable quantity of ultimate crown inclination and independent variables of bracket prescription (Roth or MBT) and tooth type. Results: There were no statistically significant differences in terms of the ultimate inclination of the anterior teeth between the 2 bracket prescriptions (P < .132). Statistically significant differences were found between the ultimate inclinations of various tooth types investigated (P< .001). Conclusion: In this group of selected patient records, the differences in torque values between the 2 bracket prescriptions failed to cause any real clinically detectable differences within the final inclination of teeth.

Aim: Purpose of the study was to judge the prevalence of malocclusion and associated predisposing deleterious oral habits in South Indian teen population. Methodology: Prevalence of malocclusion and treatment need was assessed using the Dental Aesthetic Index (DAI) among a sample of 1000, 12 and 15-year-old school children in prominent South Indian cities, who received no treatment before or during the study. Subjects were also assessed for deleterious oral habits. For statistical analysis, Chi-square test was wont to test the correlation of habits with mean DAI score and malocclusion traits. Results: Mean DAI score was 26.81±5.25. Nearly 52% of the study sample presented with malocclusion, starting from ‘definite’ to ‘handicapping’ supported the DAI scores. The prevalence of varied deleterious oral habits was 21.2%. About 35% of youngsters with any oral habit developed malocclusion as compared to those with none habit (P value=0.014). Tongue thrusting, mouth breathing and thumb sucking habits had a major impact on malocclusion.Conclusion: It was evident from the results of our study that presence of malocclusion directly depends upon the presence of deleterious oral habits in general.

Aim: Purpose of our research was to assess any soft tissue changes, especially related to alar base after orthognathic surgical procedure. Methodology: 20 patients were selected for this study who were suffering from maxillary hypoplasia, maxillary or mandibular prognathism. They underwent orthognathic surgeries like LeFort I osteotomy of maxilla and/or bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO) of mandible, or combinations with Genioplasty,Anterior Maxillary Osteotomy and/or Sub-Apical Osteotomy. Superimposition of 3D photographic images before and after treatment was performed for comparisons using 3D stereophotogrammetric camera setup and software. Paired t-test was performed to compare between pre- as well as post-operative measurements of alar base. Results: The average width of the alar base and subalare were almost same after surgery. Alar width was amplified by 0.74 mm. Nasal height and length persisted. Nasolabial angle enlarged significantly. Nostril’s total area also increased. Nasal tip projection decreased significantly by 1.99 mm. Conclusion: The nasal changes in patients demonstrated an increase of the nasolabial angle, a delicate increase of the alar width, together with no change on the alar base width, nasal height, and nasal length.
