Orthodontic Treatment of Maxillary Protrusion in Adults

Description

Orthodontic treatment in adults from the age of 21 and older, according to Moyers, is belated treatment; according to German group of authors, the end of age 18 and higher is the border line for Belated Treatment. This rule does not apply for all abnormalities, e.g. accentuated sceletal abnormalities, in which a belated orthodontic treatment could be even in the age of 12. Definitions: "Adult treatment" and "Belated treatment" all the same are not identic but launching a therapy in short-fall of growth and development is valid for both mentioned. In this case will be presented an orthodontic treatment in adult with maxillary protrusion and increased overjet. Fixed (Edgewise technique) treatment was used - with Headgear and Quadhelix as orthodontic aids. Due to processes of bone destruction, growth and remodeling in parodontium is slower in adults, continued elastic forces should be applied in lower intensity compared on that used in adolescents. In this case, after clinic examination and orthodontic analysis, it was decided to extract first maxillary premolars. Based on comparison of models, photographs, and cephalometrics analysis before and after treatment, we can conclude that results were good enough, maxillary frontal teeth were retruted, occlusal relationship improved, and esthethics is improved. The treatment has lasted 12 to 15 months whereas retention phase has lasted more than in young patients.
