Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Because stability is known as the fundamental key of the successful outcome of orthodontics treatment, this study investigated the stability of tongue, hyoid bone and airway dimensions at least two years after active treatment with Faramand functional appliance in patients with class II div 1 malocclusion. Conclusion: The present findings indicate that treatment with functional appliance has the potential to increase pharyngeal airway dimensions and changes in tongue and hyoid position. Importantly, these achieved changes seemed to be maintained in long-term, up to 4 years on average.
