Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop. 1997 Feb;111(2):173-83. doi: 10.1016/s0889-5406(97)70213-0.


The principles on which the present approach to the treatment of cleidocranial dysplasia are based were stated in part 1 of this article. Comparison was made with two other methods and the advantages of the present method were described in terms of (a) how this method is adapted to the clinical features of the condition, (b) when surgical intervention is appropriate, (c) how the dynamic appliance system may be adapted to the changing environment as more teeth erupt, and (d) the importance of rapidly bringing about the eruption of the anterior teeth. The practical aspects of the treatment are now described step-by-step with illustrations taken from the treatment of several different patients.
