“Contemporary Total Arch Mechanics for Non-surgical,
Non-extraction and Non-prosthetic Treatment using Miniscrews”

KEYNOTE SESSION DESCRIPTION & OUTLINE

“Biomechanics” may sound pedantic unless it is viably incorporated into the clinical situation. Conventional biomechanical principles revealed that on a continuous archwire, one unit significantly affects the other when the two units are tied against each other, which greatly limits the treatment options for the orthodontist to choose from. For example, in premolar extraction cases, translation or root movement of anterior segment inevitably causes significant forward movement of posterior segment. From our past experiences and researches it has been shown that the miniscrew-type TADs enables arbitrary tooth movement in three-dimensional space depending on the force system designed by the orthodontist. Then the next question “How would we apply those rules to clinical situation?” may arise.

This course is aimed to provide insights into the latest orthodontic mechanics in the following areas.

Part I) Esthetic orthodontics

  1. Understanding the soft tissue paradigm and interactive assessment procedure to achieve the best esthetic result recognized by both the orthodontist and the patient.
  2. Understanding the biomechanics for arbitrary tooth movement / total arch movement

Part II) Therapeutic orthodontics

  1. Understanding and application of the biomechanics of single tooth control
  2. Understanding the biology for impacted tooth in compromised dentition
  3. Understanding the limitation and possibilities of tooth movement in up-to-date techniques

 

Part I) Esthetic orthodonticsL1) Simplified biomechanical principles in continuous archwire

– Understanding the dynamics in continuous arch sliding mechanics

– Predictable control of incisor axis in Class II div 1/2 cases

L2) Non-surgical treatment using soft tissue paradigm in orthodontics– ‘Plastic’ orthodontics for Class II/III camouflage

– Clinical assessment and non-surgical treatment of asymmetry

– Total arch movement for hyperdivergent face

Part II) Therapeutic orthodonticsL3) Non-surgical/non-extraction treatment using three dimensional/four-dimensional total arch movement

– Non-surgical transverse control in adults using MARPE

– Total arch movement in three and four dimensions for nonextraction

– Pre-orthodontic orthognathic surgery

L4) Single tooth control for the reconstruction of compromised dentition– Applied biomechanics for single tooth control

– Molar intrusion/uprighting-selection of insertion sites

– Reconstruction of compromised cases for non-prosthetic treatment
