AbstractAbstract PDF
It is. commonly assumed that nasorespiratory function can exert a dramatic effect upon the development of the dentofacial complex. Specially, it has been stated that chronic nasal obstruction leads to mouth breathing, which causes altered tongue and mandibular positions. If this occurs during a period of active growth, :the .outcome is development of the "adenoid facies". Such patients characteristically: manifest a vertically long lower third facial height, narrow alar bases, lip incompetence, a long and narrow maxillary arch and a greater than normal mandibular plane angle. But several authors have reported that so-called adenoid facies is not always associated with adenoids and mouth breathing, and that a particular type of dentition is not alwarys found in mouth breathers with or without adenoids. Some authors have believed adenoids lead to mouth breathing in cases with particular facial characteristics and types of dentition. We assumed that the ability to adapt to individual's neuromuscular complex is various. So, we compared the difference of influence of mouth breathing between childrens who have different facial types. This study included 60 patients and they were divided into three groups by Rickett's facial type. Their dentition and tongue position were compared. The results are as follows. 1. There is a significant difference in arch width of upper molars between different facial types. Especially dolichofacial type patients have narrowest arch width. 2. There is a significant difference in tongue position between different facial types. Especially dolichofacial type patients have lowest positioned tongue.

AbstractAbstract PDF
We obtained successful functional and esthetic results by grafting of iliac marrow-cancellous bone in 2 cases of alveolar-palatal cleft patients. Bone graft of alveolar-palatal clefts provide bony support to adjacent teeth of cleft area, prevented from relapse of orthodontic arch expansion, closure of oroantral fistula and improvement of speech problem. 1. In one case, extraction of upper right central incisor that was little bone support, alignment of rotated teeth and expansion of collapsed arch segment were done with pre-orthodontic treatment. The other case. Bone grafting was done after removal of prosthesis with no pre-orthodontic treatment. 2. After mucoperiosteal incision in cleft area, the mucosal flap of labial area, palate and nose were separation and the raised nasal mucosa was sutured for closure of oroantral fistula. Then, the iliac marrow-cancellous bones were grafted to cleft site. 3. After 6 months of operation, we had seen the new bone deposition to cleft site in dental radiograph and prosthetic treatment of missing teeth were done.

AbstractAbstract PDF
This is a case report of correction of malunioned maxilla after traffic accident by Le Fort I osteotomy and posterior segmental osteotomy. By this procedure, authors obtained the following results. 1. The malunioned maxilla after traffic accident which had anterior crossbite, posterior open bite and scissor's bite were corrected by Le Fort 1 osteotomy and posterior segmental osteotomy. 2. No postoperative infection and specific complication were seen in this case. 3. Postoperative intermaxillary fixation was maintained for 8 weeks. And then, the patient could open his mouth in normal range after a week of intermaxillary fixation removal. 4. For rigid fixation and reducing relapse, the osteotomized maxilla was fixed with miniplates.
