Dentofacial orthopaedics is a term describing the treatment of malocclusion, or misalignment of the jaws. Such misalignment can cause difficulty with speech, chewing and sometimes breathing, as well as leading to an undesirable facial profile. Dentofacial orthopaedics is distinct from orthodontics, which is concerned with correcting the relative positions of the teeth themselves rather than the jaws.

King Georges Medical University and The Georgians King Georges Medical College (KGMC), now a University (KGMU), is one of the oldest medical institutions in India. Its foundation stone was laid in 1905 and the first batch of medical students was admitted in 1911. It was built by generous donations from eminent persons of the state of Oudh with their vision that the College should be the best in the East. With time, the College added departments, infrastructure, buildings and faculty and its alumni are called The Georgians. The Georgians have made name for themselves and their alma mater. The older buildings are in the Indo-Saracenic style, in keeping with ancient and royal buildings of this capital of Oudh. Some of these building have been declared as national heritage. KGMU has a sprawling campus, spread about 25 acres and is crossed by the River Gomti, two national highways, a railway line and a satellite campus soon to begin. The college was upgraded to a University in September 2002. Today KGMU ranks number one among state government funded institutions for medical and dental education in India. KGMU is the dream destination of undergraduate and post-graduate medical aspirants. This institution has been known for its teachers and unique style of teaching, a mixture of problem based and integrated styles, with a strong tradition of mentorship and bonding. The current Vice Chancellor is Prof. Ravi Kant, a Georgian. Under Prof Ravi Kants leadership, the University has seen a renaissance in the field of medical education. This KGMU Book of Clinical Cases is a set of two sister books, one for Medical Sciences and the other for Dental Sciences. These books showcase the academic experience and expertise of faculty and residents for continuing education of medical and dental fraternity.

Clinical Guide to Accelerated Orthodontics

With a Focus on Micro-Osteoperforations

Author: Mani Alikhani

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 3319434012

Category: Medical

Page: 132

View: 1981

This book is a complete reference for all clinicians who are interested in incorporating into their daily practice the techniques available to reduce the duration of orthodontic treatment and to overcome other treatment limitations. It focuses especially on micro-osteoperforations (MOPs) as the most conservative, efficient, and versatile approach to increase the rate of tooth movement. The opening chapters describe the biological principles of current accelerated techniques at the molecular and cellular levels and introduce guidelines on how to select the best acceleration approach based on each patient’s needs. Clinicians are then guided step by step through the application of MOPs, case selection, and treatment planning. It is explained how MOPs can be incorporated into daily mechanotherapy for the treatment of different malocclusions and how to take advantage of the catabolic and anabolic effects of the procedure to expand the boundary of orthodontic and orthopaedic corrections. The book is written in a simple and clear language with many illustrations and clinical examples to facilitate understanding of concepts and procedures. In addition, it is a rich source for academicians and researchers interested in a comprehensive and updated review on theories of tooth movement and accelerated orthodontic techniques.
