Orthodontic Appliances, Activator .
Loose-fitting removable orthodontic appliances which redirect the pressures of the facial and masticatory muscles onto the teeth and their supporting structures to produce improvements in tooth arrangements and occlusal relations. .
Tooth Migration .
Tooth Drift .
Tooth Drifting .
Migration, Tooth .
The movement of teeth into altered positions in relationship to the basal bone of the ALVEOLAR PROCESS and to adjoining and opposing teeth as a result of loss of approximating or opposing teeth, occlusal interferences, habits, inflammatory and dystrophic disease of the attaching and supporting structures of the teeth. (From Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed) .
Complementary Remedies .
Complementary Drugs .
Complementary Homeopathic Drugs .
During the course of the homeopathic treatment, additional remedies might be applied in order to support the movement initiated by previous remedies. Generally, these remedies resonate with the patient's current symptoms and are used only once. .
Occlusal Adjustment .

Occlusal Adjustments .
Occlusal Equilibration .
Selective grinding of occlusal surfaces of the teeth in an effort to eliminate premature contacts and occlusal interferences; to establish optimal masticatory effectiveness, stable occlusal relationships, direction of main occlusal forces, and efficient multidirectional patterns, to improve functional relations and to induce physiologic stimulation of the masticatory system; to eliminate occlusal trauma; to eliminate abnormal muscle tension; to aid in the stabilization of orthodontic results; to treat periodontal and temporomandibular joint problems; and in restorative procedures.

Regulator, Frankel Function .
Loose, usually removable intra-oral devices which alter the muscle forces against the teeth and craniofacial skeleton. These are dynamic appliances which depend on altered neuromuscular action to effect bony growth and occlusal development. They are usually used in mixed dentition to treat pediatric malocclusions. (ADA, 1992) .
Occlusal Splints .
Occlusal Splint .
Splint, Occlusal .
Splints, Occlusal .
Rigid or flexible appliances that overlay the occlusal surfaces of the teeth. They are used to treat clenching and bruxism and their sequelae, and to provide temporary relief from muscle or temporomandibular joint pain. .

Stress Fractures .
Fractures due to the strain caused by repetitive exercise. They are thought to arise from a combination of MUSCLE FATIGUE and bone failure, and occur in situations where BONE REMODELING predominates over repair. The most common sites of stress fractures are the METATARSUS; FIBULA; TIBIA; and FEMORAL NECK. .

Tooth Preparations .
Procedures carried out with regard to the teeth or tooth structures preparatory to specified dental therapeutic and surgical measures. .
Crown Lengthening .
Lengthening, Crown .
Technique combining controlled eruptive TOOTH MOVEMENT TECHNIQUES and incision of the supracrestal gingival attachment to allow for proper restoration of a destroyed or damaged crown of a tooth. Controlled eruption of the tooth is obtained using ORTHODONTIC APPLIANCES. During this eruptive phase, repeated incisions are made at the junctional epithelium of the sulcus and the supracrestal connective tissue to prevent coronal displacement of the gingiva and of the attachment apparatus. .
