physiologic anchorage control 2017 a new orthodontic concept and its clinical application

tian min xu


this book provides a comprehensive introduction to physiologic anchorage control, explains the implications for clinical practice, and presents an anchorage technique applicable for the treatment of different malocclusions. the concept of physiologic anchorage control is derived from observations of upper molar movement during growth in adolescence, including in the absence of orthodontic treatment, which indicate that molar forward displacement comprises two components: the first due to biologic force or physiologic anchorage loss and the second due to orthodontic force or mechanical anchorage loss. all previous anchorage methods have been based on the assumption that molar anchorage loss is to be attributed solely to the mechanical force used to retract anterior teeth, and the new concept represents a paradigm shift of clinical significance. this book explores the pattern of upper molar growth in depth, highlights the physiologic significance of the curve of spee, and analyzes the biomechanics of physiologic anchorage control. an anchorage control system that fully takes into account the latest conceptual insights is described and its clinical use and utility, more

tooth movement

a. kantarci

with the intention of improving the rate, quality, and stability of orthodontic tooth movement, those in the field are now moving toward accomplishing this 'acceleration' with minimally or non-invasive methods. new procedures have been widely tested in humans, animal models, and in vitro. while interest is growing both in the industry and at the clinical level, the understanding of the biology is limited. considering that a simple increase in force will result in tooth morbidity and arrest of the tooth migration, a multi-disciplinary approach is critical for success. this publication brings together multi-disciplinary expertise on a wide variety of processes related to and involved in orthodontic tooth movement. the premise is that, by better understanding the biological structures and the mechanism through which they respond to biomechanical forces, one can get a better assessment of the 'acceleration'. this work presents research aimed at an improved understanding of conventional and accelerated orthodontic tooth movement from a biological perspective and will be of great value to clinicians, researchers, academics, and students.

manual of retainers in orthodontics

9789351523581by jeyaraman prithiviraj
this manual of retainers in orthodontics is an all-inclusive primer which essentially is deemed to provide dental students and practitioners an insight into orthodontic retainers. orthodontists have long since been aware of the fact that teeth that have been moved in or through the bone by mechanical appliances have a tendency to return to their former position. the type of retentive measures and the duration of their use allegedly are determined by how many teeth have been moved and how far, the occlusion and age of the patient. many appliance types have been used for the retention of post-treatment tooth position. this book provides expedient information on a wide array of retainers that have been used in the past with no intent of remarking the benefits of one over the other. given that there is a dearth of a comprehensive account of orthodontic retainers, the theme harbored interest which stemmed the idea behind the conception of this manual. this manual presents various clinical scenarios with supporting literature substantiation, assisting the reader with easier preferences during their clinical practice. with the future of orthodontics hurtling at a swift pace, there would be a need to revise this manual to expand prospects for readers of orthodontics.

temporary skeletal anchorage devices a guide to design and evidence based solution

by ki beom kim (editor)

anchorage control is one of the most challenging tasks in orthodontic treatment.many different types of appliance are used to control anchorage, but an excellent outcome may be difficult to achieve owing to either poor mechanics or inadequate patient compliance. recently, temporary skeletal anchorage devices (tsads) have become popular in orthodontics. some orthodontic movements that are now possible using tsads were previously considered almost impossible with traditional orthodontic appliances.

several different types of tsad are currently available, and in choosing between them orthodontists are obliged to rely on the information provided by manufacturers, which is often not based on scientific evidence. this book therefore presents the various design characteristics of tsads and provides up-to-date scientific evidence to assist orthodontists in selecting the best tsads for their patients.
