About Margitha Björksved

Margitha is a specialist in orthodontics and a PhD student at the School of Medical Sciences at Örebro University.

Research

Her research is about the treatment of palatally displaced maxillary canines and radiologic aspects in diagnosis.

Research project

Permanent canines in the maxilla usually erupt between the ages of 11 and 12 although in approximately 2% of the Swedish population permanent canines in the maxilla never erupt. When tooth eruption is considerably delayed past the ages of 11 and 12 and the tooth is not expected to erupt successfully, based on clinical and radiographic assessment, it is referred to as impacted. An impacted tooth can damage adjacent teeth and even cause loss of adjacent teeth, why treatment is crucial. A combination of surgery and orthodontic treatment, where the canine is orthodontically moved for about three years, is often needed to resolve the anomaly. The two main surgical techniques are the closed technique and the open technique. Existing studies about which technique to prefer, point out contradictory results of side effects and complications related to the two techniques. The aim in this project is to compare treatment outcomes as duration, side effects or complications, patient factors, and economics, with the aim to supply scientific evidence in the choice between techniques.

Teaching

Margitha Björksved is a consultant orthodontist at the Department of Orthodontics, Specialized Dental care, Folktandvården Region Örebro. Except for clinical service, she is involved in education for dentists who train to orthodontists, and also in education for dental nurses who train to become orthodontic assistants. Both educations are conducted at Department of Orthodontics, Specialized Dental care, Folktandvården Region Örebro.

She is also a course manager in orthodontic courses at Folktandvården AB, Region Sörmland.
