Abstract:

Over the last century orthodontic profession has placed significant

emphasis on correction of sagittal discrepancies. Smile zone discrepancies of smile height, smile arc, midlines, and occlusal planes have received attention only in recent years. Unfortunately, mechanics employed to correct smile zone problems are often too simplistic and do not result in predictable corrections. At the University of Connecticut, we have provided biomechanics tools which can help us achieve predictable movements of teeth. This presentation will discuss management of various smile zone problems by application of targeted mechanics., temporary anchorage devices and methods to speed orthodontic treatment

This all day course would touch upon contemporary treatment approaches to correct smile zone and complex orthodontic problems. Treatment approaches described would include application of contemporary orthodontic wires, simple mechanics, application of TADs and bone plates, surgery first approach and aligners

Biomechanics based management of smile zone discrepancies:

Over the last century orthodontic profession has placed significant emphasis on correction of sagittal discrepancies. Smile zone discrepancies of smile height, smile arc, midlines, and occlusal planes have received attention only in recent years. Unfortunately, mechanics employed to correct smile zone problems are often too simplistic and do not result in intended corrections. Over the last five decades we have provided biomechanics tools which can help us achieve predictable movements of teeth. This presentation will discuss management of various smile zone problems by application of targeted mechanics. Contemporary Management of Open Bite Patients

Open bite correction is one of the most difficult malocclusion to correct from the point of view of achieving esthetic goals and long term stability. This presentation will describe when to extrude anterior teeth and when to intrude posterior teeth. Various methods to intrude posterior teeth will be discussed. For extrusion of anterior teeth biomechanics based smart wire will be described. Various procedures will be shown step by step on patients treated with and without TADs.

Targeted Mechanics to Manage Complex Orthodontic ProblemsThis presentation will be patient treatment based and problems will include , Lengthening alveolar bone with extrusive forces for missing laterals, preparing edentulous sites for implants with orthodontic mechanics, intruding supra erupted teeth to create vertical space for prosthesis in opposing arch and orthodontic management of patients with multiple agenesis

Learning Objectives:

 

1. To understand biomechanics principles to achieve predictable results

2. To learn one couple cantilevers

3. To learn application of two couple force system

4. To learn mechanics to correct deep bite, open bite and midline problems

5. To appreciate application of TADs to correct complex problems

Prof. Ravindra Nanda is Professor Emeritus, Former Head of the Department of Craniofacial Sciences and Division of Orthodontics, University of Connecticut, Farmington, Connecticut, U.S.A. He has been author and co-author of seven orthodontic books and more than two hundred and fifty scientific and clinical articles in major journals. He is Editor-in-Chief of Progress in Orthodontics.  He is on the editorial board of ten different national and international orthodontic journals. He is also an associate editor of Journal of Clinical Orthodontics.

 Dr. Nanda is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. He has given numerous named lectures at national and international societies including Mershon Lecture at American Association of Orthodontics and Sheldon Friel Lecture at 2011 EOS Congress. He has been recognized with various awards from numerous international orthodontic organizations including “legend in Orthodontics” from Diplomates of American Board of Orthodontics in 2017.

 His new book is titled “ Atlas of Complex Orthodontics”.
