“The rationale of skeletal anchorage in orthodontics:
new protocols and new therapeutic possibilities”

KEYNOTE LECTURE ABSTRACT & OUTLINE

Abstract

Recognizing the necessary anchorage, knowing how to obtain and maintaining it during the treatment are certainly some of the fundamental points that lead to orthodontic success. For years orthodontists have applied complex systems and various devices to maintain the desired anchorage, sometimes only partially succeeding. Situations of absence of multiple dental elements or cases of compromised tooth support could sometimes make orthodontic treatment extremely complex, if not impossible. The introduction of Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs), safe devices and simple clinical use, has revolutionized the orthodontic world, simplifying otherwise very complex treatments, and making possible treatments otherwise impossible. During the last fifteen years, the use of TADs has deeply transformed my daily orthodontic practice, leading to new protocols and simplified orthodontic biomechanics. Furthermore, the use of the front portion of the palate for the insertion of TADs has allowed in the last years to overcome or reduce some of main limits of inter-radicular TADs. Indeed, this new approach has allowed exploiting better bone characteristics, quantitatively and qualitatively, eliminating, at the same time, any interference during orthodontic movements. Therefore, the use of skeletal anchorage and especially palatal skeletal anchorage offers to the clinicians new and promising therapeutic opportunities, with the possibility of developing many devices, for the most varied orthodontic objectives
