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