Orthodontic management by functional activator treatment: a case report
Orthodontic intervention in the mixed dentition does not always prevent orthodontic treatment in the permanent dentition; however, there can be significant advantages to early intervention. Identifying certain problems at an early age offers a possibility either to redirect skeletal growth or to improve the occlusal relationship. The primary objective of managing orthodontic problems in the mixed dentition stage is to intercept or correct malocclusions that would otherwise become progressively more complex in the permanent dentition or result in skeletal anomalies. The purpose of this article is to discuss how to identify and treat such common situations and malocclusions in the mixed dentition that lend themselves to early intervention.

Metrics details. Managing orthodontic treatment is often very difficult for the orthodontist. Many devices are used during the orthopedic phase of orthodontic treatment, always with different functions. We describe a case of orthodontic management treated with the Equilibrator O. For treatment, we only used the Equilibrator O. Functional activators were created for orthodontic purposes in the s by Soulet and Besombes, two French orthodontists. These functional orthopedic devices were designed to reinstate the craniofacial architecture.

There is a notion that treatment rendered in mixed dentition must be followed by another phase of treatment in permanent dentition. This study investigates the effects of mixed-dentition treatment using a fi xed appliance protocol in a sample of patients.
The treatment options for the early treatment of anterior open bite are still controversial.

Cleft lip or palate is one of the most common types of craniomaxillofacial birth anomalies. Midface deficiency is a common feature of cleft lip and palate patients due to scar tissue of the lip and palate closure. Cleft lip and palate patients should be carefully evaluated by the craniofacial team in order to detect potentially serious deformities. Craniofacial team is involved with diagnosis of facial morphology, feeding problems, guidance of the growth and development of the face, occlusion, dentition, hearing and speech problems, and psychosocial issues and jaw discrepancy of the patients with cleft lip and palate or craniofacial syndromes. Treatment for cleft children requires a multidisciplinary approach including facial surgery in the first months of life, preventive and interceptive treatment in primary dentition, speech therapy, orthodontics in the mixed dentition phase, oromaxillofacial surgery, and implant and prosthetics in adults. Treatment plan from orthodontic perspective can be divided into the following stages based on the dentition stages: 1 presurgical orthopedics, 2 primary dentition, 3 mixed dentition, and 4 permanent dentition. Cleft lip or palate is one of the most common types of cranio-maxillofacial birth anomalies.
