Growth Modification

Growth modification appliances are used to enhance or reduce the growth of the jaw in a forward or backward direction. It can also be designed to allow expansion to the upper arch. These appliances help correct the front-to-back relationship of the upper and lower jaws, thereby correcting the overbite. These types of appliances are stay in mouth for 4 to 18 months.

Growth modification (early treatment) is part of the first phase of two-stage orthodontic treatment of children with malocclusion (poor bite). Growth modification is only possible when bones are still growing. It is most effective during children's growth spurts (for girls upto 12 yrs and for boys upto 14 yrs). Ideal timing of treatment varies depending on the condition, when adult teeth come in, and the amount of growth necessary to correct the malocclusion. Children are often more cooperative than teenagers when it comes to wearing their appliances for a certain number of hours a day.Surgery is the only option to correct malocclusion once growth is complete.

Breast cancer - Should I check in with my dentist?

If chemotherapy is part of a treatment plan for breast cancer, she should schedule a regular cleaning with her dentist before starting treatment. Most chemotherapy agents will suppress white cells, which protect against infection. And that increases the risk of doing an invasive procedure, such as a tooth extraction or deep cleaning, will cause infection. Usually about a week after each treatment dental checkup is must. During this period, oncologist can advise her and her dentist about when it would be safe to do a dental procedure. Breast cancer patients should maintain good hygiene — brushing, rinsing and flossing — throughout their treatment.
If a woman has breast cancer and is treated by surgery or by radiation but not chemotherapy, the mouth is not affected in any way.
