Impact of an educational leaflet on parents' knowledge and awareness of children's orthodontic problems in Shiraz
RésuméRaising parents' awareness about dentofacial malocclusions is important for avoiding delays in seeking treatment. The aim of the present research was to assess the impact of an educational leaflet on parent's knowledge and awareness of orthodontic malocclusion in children. Parents of 533 7-9-year-old schoolchildren were randomized into a leaflet group who received an educational leaflet and a control group with no leaflet. Pre-and post-intervention test scores on a questionnaire about orthodontic problems were compared. Differences between post- and pre-test scores were significantly higher in the leaflet group than the control group for the total score and the domain on general awareness of orthodontic problems. Scores on the domain of knowledge of referral intervals did not differ significantly. Information leaflets may be useful for increasing parents' awareness of orthodontic problems in children

Salehi, P.; Danaie, S. Momene (2008)This study assessed the effect of extraction and preservation of the 1st premolar on lower 3rd molar eruption. Orthodontic clinic records from 1993 to 1995 were evaluated before and after treatment and 8-9 years after treatment for 3 groups of patients: 32 with extraction of 1st premolars in both jaws, 32 with no extraction but orthodontic treatment and 48 controls with no extraction but orthodontic treatment in the upper jaws only. Successful eruption of 3rd molars was evaluated. There was a significant difference in the rates of successful ...
Palatal rugae area: a landmark for analysis of pre- and post-orthodontically treated adult Egyptian patients Abdel Aziz, H.M.; Sabet, N.E. (2001)We aimed to evaluate the stability of the palatal rugae area before and after orthodontic treatment in adult Egyptian patients, and to suggest whether it could be used in superimposition in order to analyse orthodontic treatment change. Fifty pre- and post-dental casts of orthodontically treated adult Egyptian patients were collected from the clinic of the Orthodontic Department the University of Cairo. All patients were indicated to have symmetrical extraction of first premolars. The casts were scanned and analysed. The most reliable points were ...
