I am asking for advise concerning patients with scleroderma. A 61 year old previous patient with retainers came in for a consultation. She now has scleroderma. Retainers do not fit anymore. Within her scleroderma support group, there are many people with severe dental problems. She is worried about further dental movement. Is it a good idea for me to make new retainers for her? Will they be plaque traps that will only worsen her dental health? If anyone has had any experience with patients with scleroderma or thoughts about this situation, please advise me.

This is the first account i have seen on the obvious treatment of a severe mandibular prognathism. Dick Carter
"Until surgery in 1974, Mr. Kerry had a misalignment of his jaw that prevented him from biting properly and made a loud clicking noise when he ate. "It was exasperating," Mr. Kerry said. While critics have suggested the procedure was cosmetic, both he and his dental surgeon, Dr. Walter C. Guralnick of Massachusetts General Hospital denied that."

(Editor's Note: The story about John Kerry's jaw surgery was published in the New York Times on October 3, 2004.)

Subject: Help wanted in Hoo, Kent, Great Brittan. Or Who in Hoo?

I have a 13 y.o. female patient who is ready (slightly over ready, actually) to start treatment. She is an uncrowded Class II, Div. 1 malocclusion. My proposed treatment would be a Crowned Herbst Appliance (12 months) followed by conventional bands/brackets for a treatment time of approximately 2 years. She and her mother are planning on moving back to Hoo, Kent, England in about 9 months. What I need is an orthodontist located close to Hoo, or somewhere in Kent willing to accept a patient partway along in treatment with a Herbst. I can also modify my treatment plan so that the functional aspects of treatment will coordinate with the eventual finishing orthodontist preferred technique. As no treatment has started on this patient, a myriad of options are available but at age 13 the growth clock is ticking and they wish to start treatment right away. So can anybody help me with a patient going to Hoo, and also what, where and when.
