    Influence of Attachments and Interproximal Reduction on Canine Rotation with Invisalign March 13, 2008, 11:12 p.m.

    Influence of Attachments and Interproximal Reduction on the Accuracy of Canine Rotation with Invisalign

    A Prospective Clinical Study
    Neal D. Kravitz; Budi Kusnoto; Brent Agran; Grace Viana

     

    ABSTRACT

    Objective: To evaluate the influence of attachments and interproximal reduction on canines undergoing rotational movement with Invisalign.

    Materials and Methods: In this prospective clinical study, 53 canines (33 maxillary and 20 mandibular) were measured from the virtual TREAT models of 31 participants treated with anterior Invisalign. The pretreatment virtual model of the predicted final tooth position was superimposed on the posttreatment virtual model using ToothMeasure, Invisalign's proprietary measurement software. A one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) (P < .05) compared three treatment modalities: attachments only (AO), interproximal reduction only (IO), and neither attachments nor interproximal reduction (N). Student's t-tests (P < .05) compared the mean accuracy of canine rotation between arches.

    Results: The mean accuracy of canine rotation with Invisalign was 35.8% (SD = 26.3). Statistical analyses indicated that there was no significant difference in accuracy between groups AO, IO, and N (P = .343). There was no statistically significant difference (P = .888) in rotational accuracy for maxillary and mandibular canines for any of the treatment groups. The most commonly prescribed attachment shape was the vertical-ellipsoid (70.5%).

    Conclusions: Vertical-ellipsoid attachments and interproximal reduction do not significantly improve the accuracy of canine rotation with the Invisalign system.

    KEY WORDS: Invisalign, Accuracy, Superimposition, Attachments, Interproximal reduction.

    The use of compound topical anesthetics: a review Dec. 30, 2007, 10:01 p.m.

    The use of compound topical anesthetics: A review

    Neal D. Kravitz, DMD, MS

    Background. The author reviewed the history of, federal regulations regarding, risks of and adverse drug reactions of five compound topical anesthetics: tetracaine, adrenaline/epinephrine and cocaine (TAC); lidocaine, adrenaline/epinephrine and tetracaine (LET); lidocaine, tetracaine and phenylephrine (TAC 20 percent Alternate); lidocaine, prilocaine and tetracaine (Profound); and lidocaine, prilocaine, tetracaine and phenylephrine with thickeners (Profound PET).

    Types of Studies Reviewed. The author reviewed clinical trials, case reports, descriptive articles, and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations and recent public advisory warnings regarding the federal approval of and risks associated with the use of compound topical anesthetics.

    Results. Compound topical anesthetics are neither FDA-regulated nor -unregulated. Some compounding pharmacies bypass the new FDA drug approval process, which is based on reliable scientific data and ensures that a marketed drug is safe, effective, properly manufactured and accurately labeled. Two deaths have been attributed to the lay use of compound topical anesthetics. In response, the FDA has announced the strengthening of its efforts against unapproved drug products.

    Clinical Implications. Compound topical anesthetics may be an effective alternative to local infiltration for some minimally invasive dental procedures; however, legitimate concerns exist in regard to their safety. Until they become federally regulated, compound topical anesthetics remain unapproved drug products whose benefits may not outweigh their risks for dental patients.

    Key Words: Topical anesthetics; U.S. Food and Drug Administration; compounding

     

    Abbreviations: CPG: Compliance Policy Guide • FDA: U.S. Food and Drug Administration • FDAMA: Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act • LET: Lidocaine, adrenaline/epinephrine and tetracaine • PABA: Para-aminobenzoic acid • TAC: Tetracaine, adrenaline/epinephrine and cocaine • TADs: Temporary anchorage devices

    The risks associated with miniscrew placement should be clearly understood by both the clinician and the patient. Complications can arise during miniscrew placement and after orthodontic loading that affect stability and patient safety. A thorough understanding of proper placement technique, bone density and landscape, peri-implant soft-tissue, regional anatomic structures, and patient home care are imperative for optimal patient safety and miniscrew success. The purpose of this article was to review the potential risks and complications of orthodontic miniscrews in regard to insertion, orthodontic loading, peri-implant soft-tissue health, and removal.

    Intrusion of Overerupted Upper First Molar Using Two Orthodontic Miniscrews June 3, 2007, 8:47 p.m.

    Intrusion of Overerupted Upper First Molar Using Two Orthodontic Miniscrews

    A Case Report
    Neal D. Kravitz;a Budi Kusnoto;b Peter T. Tsay;c William F. Hohltd

    ABSTRACT

    Loss of the mandibular first molar often leads to the overeruption of the opposing maxillary first molar, resulting in occlusal interference, loss of periodontal bony support, and inadequate room to restore the mandibular edentulous space. Without orthodontic molar intrusion or segmental surgical impaction, restoring the posterior occlusion often entails the need for significant reduction of maxillary molar crown height, with the potential need for costly iatrogenic root canal therapy and restoration. The literature has cited successful maxillary molar intrusion with minor prosthodontic reduction using palatal orthodontic miniscrews and buccal zygomatic miniplates. In this report, the authors present successful maxillary molar intrusion with two orthodontic miniscrews in a patient with extreme dental anxiety and significant dental erosion due to gastric reflux. Using two orthodontic miniscrews for skeletal anchorage to intrude the maxillary molar simplified the orthodontic treatment by eliminating the need for extensive surgery, headgear, and intraoral multiunit anchorage and preserved indispensable tooth enamel. The clinical results showed significant intrusion through the maxillary sinus cortical floor while maintaining periodontal health, tooth vitality, and root length.

    KEY WORDS: Overerupted molars, Intrusion, Miniscrew.

    Dr. Kravitz and his team are beyond amazing. They are always courteous to our girls. They take their time with my oldest (who is very nervous), and make sure she is comfortable with the process. They are always helpful and respond to after hours messages in a fast and professional manner. Dr. Kravitz is also very supportive of the community. We are very happy with the service and care our family receives.

    Dr. Kravitz and his team are simply amazing. No request is too big, no appointment is ever a problem; they do whatever it takes to take care of you! Dr K and his entire team knows all of their patients. When I'm waiting for my appointment time in the waiting room I watch as other patients arrive. They are greeted individually by name; his staff somehow remembers and recognize you as you walk in! He's a remarkable orhthodontist; he truly cares about his patients and their satisfaction. I am so thankful I found him and would recommend him to you as well. He's simply the best! You will not find better care anywhere else.

    About Front Desk: The best staff; you are greeted with a smile everytime!

    Amazing. Simply amazing. Dr Kravitz is amazing in every way. He is kind, compassionate,and truly values each and every person that walks through his doors. One of my daughters has hyper sensitive teeth and dr Kravitz is calm and caring with her each and every time. So much so that she actually looks forward to seeing him! He has treated everyone in my family, including me and I can't say enough wonderful things about him. He is one of a kind, in the best way possible. In addition, his entire staff is incredible.

    Words can't describe how amazing Kravitz Orthodontics is. Dr. Kravitz and his team are probably the kindest people I have ever done business with. They genuinely care about what's best for you. I had gone to another company to straighten my teeth, however I was not satisfied with the end result after having the Invisilgn that they had recommended. When I went to Dr. Kravitz, he explained to me the cause and said I needed braces. I was very hesitant but he assured me everything would be taken care of. Sure enough, he and his team are walking me through the process and I have seen amazing results. I have and will continue to recommend this place to all my friends and family.

    dr. kravitz is extremely friendly, encouraging and positive! I haven't been in a practice in which the doctor truly cares about their patients as much as dr. kravitz. during my consult I explained to dr. kravitz that I was extremely nervous about having dental work done, he definitely remembered that and was very accommodating. I also told him that I was getting married in May 2014 and would want the braces off by then... they came off in December (bottom) 2013 and February (top) 2014! he stayed true to his word and I could not be more pleased with my smile!! the facility was extremely clean and modern. the hygienists were just as friendly and comforting. they explain everything they were going to do prior to doing it, which helps ease the anxiety of having dental work done. I didn't have any teeth pulled, nor any spacers put in prior to having my braces put on. they also gave me the option of ceramic braces or metal braces, since I am in my mid-twenties, I chose ceramic on top and metal on bottom. most people had no idea I even had the braces on, until they noticed my teeth straightening out! I was extremely pleased with the payment option I chose. I would recommend dr. kravitz to everyone!

    About Front Desk: the staff at kravitz orthodontics were all amazing. any time I had questions or concerns they were more than happy to help. every time I called, they were very friendly and cheerful (very hard to find that these days). I have a very strict work schedule and they were able to accommodate that, with early morning appointments. during my initial consult I knew right away that this was the best orthodontist for me! they had all of the payment options already printed out for me, as well as my insurance information. they know every patient by name, as well as spouse or parents names. everyone at the front desk would get 5 stars!!
