Abstract [en]

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the reliability of a questionnaire that assessed the expectations and experiences of adolescent patients about orthodontic treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study included two groups of patients: 30 consecutive patients (19 girls and 11 boys, mean age 14.6 years, SD 2.3 years) naïve to orthodontic treatment, and 30 consecutive adolescent patients (17 girls and 13 boys, mean age 15.1 years, SD 2.0 years) in active orthodontic treatment with fixed appliances in both jaws. A questionnaire comprising 46 items was developed, based upon focus group interviews and previous established questionnaires. The questionnaire covered the following domains: Treatment motivation; treatment expectations; pain and discomfort from teeth, jaws, and face; functional jaw impairment; and questionnaire validity. Internal consistency as well as temporal stability with the test-retest method was investigated. RESULTS: A majority of the questions exhibited acceptable test-retest reliability, and composite scores yielded excellent reliability for all domains. Internal consistency was acceptable and good face validity was found for all domains. CONCLUSION: The questionnaire can be recommended for use in the assessment of expectations and experiences of orthodontic treatment.

Abstract [en]

Orthodontic anchorage is the ability to resist unwanted reciprocalforces and reinforcement of anchorage by supplementary appliances,in or outside the mouth, is often needed to obtain successful results.In the last 10 years, interest in appliances that use implants has beengrowing.Successful orthodontic treatment demands effective methods andsystematic evaluation of different treatment approaches is thereforeessential. Several studies on the efficiency of various anchorage systemshave been published, but a critical appraisal or interpretationof evidence that systematically considers validity, results, and relevancehas not been made. Analysis of treatment modalities must alsoinclude patients’ perceptions and potential side-effects.The overall aim of this thesis was to evaluate a new anchoragetechnique that incorporates osseointegration and compare it withconventional methods concerning effects on tooth movements inadolescents and their acceptance and experience of the additionalsurgical procedures that osseointegration involves. The followinganchorage systems were analyzed: Onplant system, Orthosystemimplant, headgear and transpalatal bar.This thesis was based on four studies:Paper I systematically reviewed the efficiency of orthodontic anchoragesystems and interpreted the methodological quality of theselected studies from an evidence-based perspective. The literaturesearch spanned January 1966 – December 2004 and was later extendedto July 2007.
