Correction of the skeletal Class II malocclusion using functional appliances always leads to undesirable effects at maxillary and mandibular incisors, and these affect the amount of skeletal correction that occurs, which in turn is reflected in the facial profile. Many modifications have been made to the Twin Block appliance to increase the skeletal effect. Therefore, this case series described the soft tissues changes in skeletal Class II malocclusion treated with Twin Block appliance supported by mini-implants. 8 children with Class II division 1 malocclusion were enrolled in this study. Fun
This study aimed to compare the functional treatment duration in patients treated with conventional and newly designed twin block appliances. 2-arm parallel-randomized clinical trial was conducted on 36 patients (17 males, 19 females) in the age group of 11–13 years. Subjects were treated with modified Twin Block (group 1, n=18) and conventional Twin Block (group 2, n=18) appliances. A standard recall interval of 6 to 8 weeks. At each recall visit, until an overjet 0.5-2.5 mm and Class I canine relationships were achieved in the centric relationship position, and then the treatment duration
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a chronic gastrointestinal disease characterized by regurgitation of gastric contents into the esophagus. Over the past ten years, there has been a rise in the number of individuals in the UAE experiencing chronic gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). This study aimed to assess the prevalence and factors of GERD among adults in the UAE. The study followed a cross-sectional study design. We included samples from individuals over 18 years old attending the Medi city in Ajman. The research collected data via a self-administered questionnaire. The GERDQ
Composite blocks of β-tricalcium phosphate (βTCP) derived from green mussel shells mixed with polyacrylic acid (PAA) solution were fabricated for potential use as artificial bone substitutes. Evaluations were conducted considering various powder-to-liquid ratios, and comparisons were made with a control using commercial βTCP mixed with PAA solution. Parameters such as bulk density, porosity, and diametral tensile strength (DTS) were assessed. Notably, composite blocks with commercial βTCP exhibited higher density and lower porosity than those with βTCP from green mussel shells. Decreasing
Knee osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease of the knee joint. It is more common in people older than 40 years. Symptoms may include joint pain, tenderness, stiffness, locking, and sometimes an effusion. A variety of causes—hereditary, developmental, metabolic, and mechanical—may initiate processes leading to loss of cartilage. OA is a top cause of disability in older people. The goal of treatment in OA is to reduce pain and improve function. There is no cure for the disease, but some treatments attempt to slow disease progress.
