2014 SUPPLEMENT AND PRODUCT GUIDE


April 2014 Supplement; 145:4S
Surgical techniques to shorten treatment time

Each April, the AJO-DO publishes a Supplement and Product Resource Guide.
Articles in the Supplement are grouped around a theme; this year's theme is  surgical techniques to shorten treatment time. In the lead-off article in the 2014 Supplement, “Surgically facilitated orthodontic treatment: A systematic review,” Hoogeveen, Jansma, and Ren, from University Medical Center Groningen, The Netherlands, provide the first systematic review of this timely topic.   
   They identified 18 published studies that met their inclusion criteria. Seven were clinical trials with small sample sizes. The aims of their review were to answer the following questions: (1) Does surgically facilitated treatment significantly increase the velocity of tooth movement and shorten treatment duration, compared with conventional orthodontics? (2) Is there a difference in the incidence of tooth vitality loss, periodontial problems, and root resorption? (3) Do the designs of the cortical cuts and the gingival flaps influence the efficiency of tooth movement and the incidence of complications?
   Go online to see the April Supplement today, and watch your mailbox for the paper copies of the April regular issue and Supplement to arrive soon. 
   The smiling patient on the cover is Mayuri Rataul, who was treated orthodontically at SDM College of Dental Sciences, Dharwad, India, by Drs Tanuja Ajit Deshpande, Sangamesh B, Roopak Naik, and Sanjay V Ganeshkar.

APRIL ISSUE NOW ONLINE

April 2014; 145(4)
The April 2014 issue of the AJO-DO is now online
On the cover: Three-dimensional digital models are now often used in orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning, including the production of setups to visualize the results of various procedures. But the standards and characteristics of virtual setups using 3D models have not been widely explored. Im et al compared the virtual and manual tooth setups with digital and plaster models for 10 patients whose treatment was planned to include extractions. 
The smiling patient on the cover is Luke Tassopoulos,
who was treated orthodontically by Timothy Shaughnessy from Suwanee, Georgia.

2014 JOURNAL AWARDS: CASE REPORT OF THE YEAR


College of Diplomates of the American Board of Orthodontics Case Report of the Year
The College of Diplomates of the American Board of Orthodontics annually presents an award for the case report published in the AJO-DO that is judged to be the most outstanding for that year.

In 2013, the journal published more than 40 case reports. The one selected by the judges as the most outstanding was authored by Dr. Sung-Hwan Choi and Professor Chung-Ju Hwang. The title of the case report is Orthognathic treatment with autotransplantation of a third molar.”  This case report demonstrates a successful orthognathic treatment that included autotransplantation of a maxillary left third molar in a patient with a missing mandibular right first molar, mandibular protrusion and facial asymmetry.

The judges for this award consist of the five current officers serving on the Executive Council of CDABO.  
The American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics annually presents awards for the most outstanding articles in specific areas of research or clinical information. These awards include the B.F. and Helen E. Dewel Award for Clinical Research; the David L. Turpin Award for Evidence-Based Research; the Wayne G. Watson Award for Biologic or Experimental Research; and the College of Diplomates of the American Board of Orthodontics Award for the best Case Report of the Year.

“As usual, there were many outstanding candidates for this year’s awards,” said Dave Turpin, AJO-DO Interim Editor-in-Chief. “Although the competition was keen, we are proud to announce the winners.”

2014 JOURNAL AWARDS: WATSON AWARD


Wayne G. Watson Award for Biologic or Experimental Research

The Wayne G. Watson Award for Biologic or Experimental Research is given to the authors of the article that was judged as the best biologic or experimental research article published during the previous year.

The AJO-DO published more than 12 experimental research articles in 2013. The judges selected Dr. Young Seok Kim, Seoul, Korea, and co-authors as the award winners. Their article is titled Effect of piezopunctureon tooth movement and bone remodeling in dogs.  The aim of the study was to elucidate whether a newly developed, minimally invasive procedure, piezopuncture, would be a logical modification for accelerating tooth movement in the maxilla and the mandible. Piezopuncture significantly accelerated the tooth movements at all observation times, and the acceleration was greatest during the first 2 weeks for the maxilla. Based on the different effects of piezopuncture on the maxilla and the mandible, the results of a clinical trial of piezopuncture with optimized protocols might give orthodontists a therapeutic benefit for reducing treatment duration.

The Watson Award was established in 2012 to honor an editor emeritus of the AJO-DO, Dr. Wayne G. Watson. The judges for this year’s award included six distinguished international researchers.

2014 JOURNAL AWARDS: TURPIN AWARD


David L. Turpin Award for Evidence-Based Research

The Turpin award is given to the article judged as the best evidence-based research article published during the previous year.

Last year the AJO-DO published more than 14 systematic reviews or randomized clinical trials. The judges selected Dr. Greg Huang and his co-authors as the award winners. Their article is titled Effectiveness of MI paste Plusand PreviDent fluoride varnish for treatment of white spot lesions: Arandomized controlled trial.  White spot lesions are a common sequela of orthodontic therapy. In this parallel-group randomized trial, investigators assessed the effectiveness of 2 agents commonly used to ameliorate white spot lesions compared with a normal home-care regimen. MI Paste Plus and PreviDent fluoride varnish were not found to be more effective than normal home care for improving the appearance of white spot lesions over an 8-week period.
The Turpin Award was established in 2011, to honor Dr. David L. Turpin, editor emeritus of the AJO-DO. During his tenure as editor-in-chief of the journal, Dr. Turpin was a strong proponent of evidence-based research. The judges’ panel for the 2013 award included six orthodontic department chairs from the United States and Canada.
