Description

Applied Biomechanics Reveals Factors that Affect the Speed of Human Tooth Movement

Vanguard information about how velocity of human tooth movement may be affected in clinical practice will be presented. Important potential factors include: amount of force per root area, biomarkers like cytokines secreted in gingival crevicular fluid, and effects of mastication on bracket-archwire friction.

Learning Objectives:

  • Demonstrate how biomechanics can be applied for predictable tooth movement
  • Provide clinical data on the dose-response relation between applied stress and speed of tooth movement
  • Identify biomechanical factors that affect the speed of tooth movement


Predictable Mechanics to Enhance Facial Esthetics

This presentation will describe simple mechanics which can be easily used to correct smile zone problems such as canted occlusal planes, midline discrepancies, gummy smile and lack of incisor showing during smile. Step by step mechanics will be presented by using examples of patients at various stages of treatment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Demonstrate treatment and mechanics planning to correct malocclusions which adversely affect smile zone
  • Construct and activate different wires to correct smile zone orthodontic problems
