Disease relevance of Dental Arch


High impact information on Dental Arch

  • Occlusal stability in shortened dental arches [2].
  • Surgical reconstruction was performed, utilizing Erich dental arch bars for external stenting [3].
  • Six to 10 solid-screw ITI implants were placed around the dental arch to reach the first molar regions [4].
  • Acetal meets esthetic requirements, particularly when restoring the anterior region of the dental arches [5].
  • Data from the individual tooth surface measurements were subjected to analyses of variance partitioned on group (Study vs Control), radiographic method, tooth type, dental arch and surface location [6].

Biological context of Dental Arch

  • This paper summarizes some important determinants of optimal occlusal development, namely, tooth size relationships within and between dentitions, the patterns of alveolar growth, and tooth migrations during the transition from primary to permanent teeth and the nature of growth changes in the dental arches [7].
  • The dental-arch surfaces preferentially used in mastication were studied by measuring functional and occlusal surface areas and comparing these to the number of chews required to swallow foods of different texture properties [8].
  • The results indicated no relationship between duration of breast-feeding during the first year of life and any dental arch or occlusal parameters [9].

Anatomical context of Dental Arch

  • The length of the mandibular dental arch changed in the parabolic arch form by 1.51 mm for each millimetre of incisor inclination with respect to the occlusal functional plane, by 0.54 mm for each degree of controlled tipping and by 0.43 mm for each degree of uncontrolled tipping [10].
  • An SMDA was developed to classify dental-arch discrepancies in the permanent dentition based on several intra-arch occlusal characteristics [11].
  • The category with three to four occluding premolars had significantly more interdental spacing and, for the older age group, more anterior teeth in occlusal contact compared to complete dental arches [12].
  • When compared to an age and sex-matched sample the main findings were an increased craniocervical angle, particularly in frontal view; rotated orbital, maxillary and mandibular planes, a midline shift of the lower dental arch and a flattened atlas dorsal arch combined with an elongation of the dens axis [13].

Associations of Dental Arch with chemical compounds

  • Doses to the dental arches with the Orthophos unit ranged from 50 to 555 micro Gy with the adult and from 27 to 436 micro Gy with the child program; using the PM 2002 CC unit, doses ranged from 56 to 1040 micro Gy using the adult settings, and from 60 to 890 micro Gy with the paediatric settings [14].
  • Five identical samples, each consisting of a fixed appliance, a headgear and a quad-helix for one-half of a dental arch, were immersed in 0.9% sodium chloride for 2 hours, 24 hours and 7 days [15].
  • The purpose of this study was to investigate and compare the accuracy of complete dental arch impressions and stone casts made with two kinds of impression materials (addition-type silicone and polysulfide rubber) and trays (custom tray and modified custom tray) [16].

Gene context of Dental Arch

  • Lip adaptation to simulated dental arch expansion. Part 2: One week of simulated expansion [17].
  • The third and final article in this series examines the effect of infraocclusion on the midline of the mandibular dental arch [18].
  • The aim of this study was to describe maxillary and mandibular dental-arch form and occlusion in bilateral cleft of the lip and palate (BCLP) from 3 to 17 years of age and to compare their characteristics with a normative sample [19].
  • Influence of independent variables (dental arch category, age, gender, and residence) on the parameters for occlusal stability was assessed by one-way ANOVA and Tukey's multiple range tests [12].
  • 36 % of RA patients had a unilaterally shortened dental arch compared with 11.9 % in controls (p < 0.05) [20].
