Predictable Biomechanics and Anchorage for Predictable Results

Bucharest, Romania

Dr. Ravindra NANDA

Dr. Ravindra NANDA

• Dr. Ravindra Nanda is Professor Emeritus, Former UConn Alumni Endowed Chair and Head of the Department of Craniofacial Sciences and Division of Orthodontics, University of Connecticut, Farmington, Connecticut, U.S.A. He is also an Adjunct Professor at The Forsyth Institute, Cambridge, Ma, USA.
• Dr. Nanda has been active in orthodontic research in the area of biomechanics, clinical trials and acceleration of orthodontic treatment. He has authored with his colleagues more than 250 scientific papers. He is Editor-in-Chief of Progress in Orthodontics and 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.
• In 2022 he was awarded Fellow of World Federation of Orthodontics (WFO). He has given numerous named lectures at national and international societies including Mershon and Angle Heritage Lectures at the American Association of Orthodontics and Sheldon Friel Lecture at the 2011 EOS Congress. He has been recognized with numerous Honorary memberships and has received various awards from international orthodontic organizations.
• Dr.Nanda has authored and co-authored eight text books Retention and Stability (with Dr. Burstone), Biomechanics in Clinical Orthodontics, Biomechanic and Esthetic Strategies In Clinical Orthodontics, Temporary Anchorage Devices in Orthodontics (with Dr. Uribe), Current Therapy in Orthodontics(with Dr. Kapila), Esthetics and Biomechanics in Orthodontics, and recently “ Orthodontics, two volumes “ (with Prof. Farronato), and Atlas of Complex Orthodontics (with Dr. Uribe). He has two new books coming out in 2019, Temporary Anchorage Devices (with Drs. Uribe and Yadav) and Principles and Biomechanics of Aligner Orthodontic Treatment (with Castroflorio, Garino and Ojima).

Abstract Dr. Giorgio IODICE

• 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 our daily orthodontic practice, leading to new protocols and simplified orthodontic biomechanics. Nowadays, TADs are an integral part of orthodontic treatment, especially of complex patients, providing a reliable anchorage and allowing the orthodontists to apply force system which often can not be applied efficiently with conventional mechanics.

• However, the careful knowledge of the biomechanics and of the different types of movement, according to the point of application of the forces, of the bone and periodontal support, is still an indispensable element for an effective and efficient orthodontic treatment. Indeed, biomechanics principles are ever more important in designing appliances to deliver predictable force system.

• Hence, whilst it is of primary importance to know which sites can be preferred for the insertion of TADs, according to the desired movements, on the other hand it is essential to know what kind of movement we will obtain, if it represents what we want or if and how it is possible to optimize it. Different malocclusions may require a careful selection of best site for TAD insertion for application of desired force system.

• Second part of the course will go over different biomechanical approaches for different clinical situations. We will deeply analyse the best TADs insertion sites and biomechanics for uprighting, lower molar mesialization, upper molarmesialization, impacted canines management, and a lot of other clinical very common scenarios.

Abstract Dr. Ravindra NANDA

TADs have revolutionized the way we practice traditional and aligner orthodontics over the last 25 years. They provide us absolute anchorage and source of force application to conduct complex tooth movements.

Application of TADs requires a clear understanding of biomechanics as it has additional considerations. This presentation will describe the use of extra alveolar, palatal and alveolar TADs for direct and indirect anchorage.
