[The orthognathor--a modification to the accompanying orthodontic treatment of subjects of scoliosis (author's transl)].Zahn Mund Kieferheilkd Zentralbl. 1978; 66(6):582-8.ZM
The author, after stating precisely the meaning of the term scoliosis and describing its therapy, shows the relation between its and dentural lesions as well as possible methods of preventing such alterations. The most suitable type of orthodontic device to be used in this connection is still a matter for discussion. However, the device described in this paper may be considered a further step in the direction of arriving at an optimum therapy.
