Abstract

Surgically assisted rapid maxillary expansion (SARME) is primarily used in adult orthodontics. In many cases it is followed by further surgery to address further anteroposterior and/or vertical discrepancies. Treatment times in such cases are often long with adult patients usually requesting invisible appliances. Lingual appliances can provide the mechanical control required as well as fulfil the aesthetic demands in such cases. However lingual appliances are usually custom made and indirectly bonded. Due to tooth movement following surgery there is usually a long delay before impressions can be made for customized lingual appliances. This results in a long delay before alignement and leveling can be commenced post-surgery. Three cases are presented here demonstrating the simultaneous placement of bone anchored expansion devices for surgically assisted rapid maxillary expansion with customized lingual appliances. The combination of the two procedures allows the alignement and leveling to commence very soon after surgery significantly reducing treatment times. The design of the appliances and the clinical procedures are described and discussed.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 25 September 2018.
All research outputs
#10,788,465
of 13,555,083 outputs
Outputs from Head & Face Medicine
#134
of 271 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#199,197
of 264,839 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Head & Face Medicine
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,555,083 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 271 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.7. This one is in the 5th percentile – i.e., 5% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 264,839 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 13th percentile – i.e., 13% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
