Behandling af trangstilling: Ekspansion, interproksimal reduktion eller ekstraktion?

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleCommunication

Aesthetics and social aspects are the primary factors motivating
the adult patient to seek orthodontic treatment. Crowding
is a frequent reason for patients not being confident with
their smile. Three main strategies are available to gain space
in the dental arch: 1) expansion, 2) interproximal reduction
and 3) extraction. Not only the severity of crowding determines
the treatment approach, as the intervention aims at
harmonious facial aesthetics, normal oro-facial function,
and periodontal health. The clinician bases the individualized
treatment plan on full orthodontic records. Space conditions
are assessed especially in relation to bucco-lingual
inclination of the teeth, facial physiognomy, occlusion, lip
and tongue function, and periodontal biotype. Expansion,
extraction, or interproximal reduction are complementary
strategies and can be combined according to individual
needs. Various fixed and removable types of appliances have
different properties. The appliance design depends on the
treatment goal and the planned tooth movements.
