Morphological and positional asymmetries of young children with functional unilateral posterior crossbite
[ PUBLICATION ]
This prospective clinical study evaluated the morphological and positional mandibular asymmetry of young patients with functional unilateral posterior crossbite. The sample included 9 girls and 6 boys (8.8 +/- 1.0 years of age), evaluated at the initiation of treatment and approximately 6 months after the retention phase (1.1 +/- 0.2 years after initiation of treatment). Each patient had a complete unilateral posterior crossbite involving 3 or more posterior teeth, a functional shift ...

[ PUBLICATION ]
In a previous study, we established that young children with unilateral posterior crossbite have a longer mandibular ramus and more superiorly and posteriorly positioned condyles on the crossbite side. In this study, we evaluated chewing cycle shape and duration in 14 of the patients before treatment, and we looked for changes in cycle shape and duration 6 months after treatment with rapid palatal expansion. Mandibular kinematics was recorded while chewing gum using an optoelectric ...
