dentoalveolar compensation already occurring in the patient is crucial because of limited alveolar housing of incisors which may limit mechanics towards a range of normality, which is also a range of stability and of optimal facial aesthetics. Dentoalveolar compensation occurred in both groups mainly by adaptations in mandibular incisor alveolar and basal heights. Biofunctional brackets, with accentuated lingual crown torque on the maxillary incisors and accentuated buccal crown torque on the mandibular incisors, were used. The first component is related to vertical development of the basal and dentoalveolar height while the second part affects incisor inclination 6-8. The lateral cephalometric head films of 80 untreated subjects (40 males and 40 females) aged 13-15 years were divided into four groups based on a normal, edge-to-edge, negative, or positive overjet. PLACE AND DURATION OF STUDY Dental Section, the Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi, from January 2005 to March 2006. Dentoalveolar compensation according to skeletal discrepancy and overjet in skeletal Class III patients. dentoalveolar region as a compensatory mechanism5. The dentoalveolar compensatory mechanism: background and clinical implications Br J Orthod. Dentoalveolar compensation in negative over jet cases were statistically confirmed for both incisor inclination and occlusal plane angulation. 1980 Jul;7(3):145-61. doi: 10.1179/bjo.7.3.145. The purpose of this study was to investigate dentoalveolar compensation for variations in sagittal jaw relationships in 44 adult females with normal incisor relationships and either skeletal Class I or skeletal Class III jaw relationships. An accurate estimation of dentoalveolar … the dentoalveolar heights in subjects with various skeletal discrepancies in vertical and sagittal dimension and the difference in dentoalveolar compensation among these facial patterns. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between overjet and dentoalveolar compensation in different overjet patterns. METHODOLOGY It was a cross-sectional study that was carried out on a sample of 258 subjects of Pakistani descent at The Aga Mandibular third molar extraction with dentoalveolar compensation was the treatment choice. The dentoalveolar compensation mechanism can involve height, depth, and volume of the symphysis and the anterior part of the maxilla.2, 3 However, it is not clear whether the dentoalveolar compensation mechanism is efficient in patients with extreme lower face height. Kim SJ(1), Kim KH(2), Yu HS(2), Baik HS(3). OBJECTIVE To quantitatively evaluate the pattern of dentoalveolar compensation in skeletal class II patients and to find which dentoalveolar parameter compensates the most for this sagittal jaw discrepancy. This study was aimed at evaluating the pattern of dentoalveolar compensation in STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional study. Author information: (1)Lecturer, Department of Orthodontics, School of Dentistry, Yonsei University, Seoul, South Korea. , This is what is called "dentoalveolar compensation" and can be defined as a system which attempts to maintain normal inter arch relationships. Dentoalveolar compensation has two main com-ponents. Cephalometric analysis was performed to evaluate sagittal ja … Despite some variation in facial pattern during facial growth and development, normal occlusion can be attained and maintained primarily through dental compensation. Dentoalveolar compensation refers to a system that attempts to achieve normal interarch relationships with varying skeletal discrepancies.1, 2 During facial development, full compensatory occlusal development enables normal occlusion despite some variations in skeletal relationships, whereas, in contrast, insufficient compensatory guidance of tooth eruption can lead to … Molar height was unrelated to overbite.
