Adult orthodontics 1

  1. 1. ADULT ORTHODONTICS www.indiandentalacademy.com INDIAN DENTAL ACADEMY Leader in continuing dental education www.indiandentalacademy.com
  2. 2. Index • Adult ? • History of adult orthodontics • Adult orthodontics • Reasons for increased interest of adults in orthodontic treatment • Indications • Contraindications • Difference between adult and adolescent patients • Limitations www.indiandentalacademy.com
  3. 3. Index • Treatment objectives • Diagnosis • Treatment planning : Psychological considerations Biomechanical considerations Periodontal considerations TMJ • Treatment : Adjunctive treatment Comprehensive treatment Surgical treatment • Conclusion www.indiandentalacademy.com
  4. 4. ADULT ? • Adult is defined as one who is fully grown, most males 18 and above and most females of 16 and above can be considered to be adults, although residual growth is left. • It is however quite impractical to determine the exact time when adulthood begins, since there is no definite age when a person reaches physical maturity. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  5. 5. HISTORY • Kingsley, in 1880, indicated an early awareness regarding orthodontic potential in adult patient. • He stated, “It may be regarded as settled fact that there are hardly any limits to the age when movement of teeth might not succeed.” www.indiandentalacademy.com
  6. 6. HISTORY • MacDowell(1901) was of the opinion that after the age of 16 years, a complete and permanent change in transition of the occlusion & hence orthodontic treatment, is almost impossible owing to the development of, - adult glenoid fossa, - density of the bones , - muscles of mastication. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  7. 7. HISTORY • Lischer (1912) believed that the period from 6th to 14th year was a golden age of treatment www.indiandentalacademy.com
  8. 8. HISTORY • In 1921 Calvin Case demonstrated the value of orthodontic therapy in the lower anterior area for the aged, periodontally affected patient. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  9. 9. ADULT ORTHODONTICS • Ackerman : “Adult orthodontics is concerned with striking a balance between achieving optimal proximal and occlusal contact of the teeth, acceptable dentofacial aesthetics, normal function and reasonable stability.” www.indiandentalacademy.com
  10. 10. Recent AAO survey : Increased % of patients >21 yrs, from 4% ten yrs ago, to almost 7% today; in another decade’s time adult pts would constitute 11% of avg orthodontic practice. • [JCO:1997:Gottleib,Nelson] www.indiandentalacademy.com
  11. 11. INCREASED INTEREST IN THE ADULT PATIENT Reasons [Melsen in „Curent controversies in Orthodontics‟] 1] Innovations in appliance placement techniques – Direct bonding, lingual/invisible appliances www.indiandentalacademy.com
  12. 12. 2] Innovations in material research – ceramic brackets & tooth coloured wires 3] Role of family dentist - Increased desire of restorative dentists and patients for treatment of dental mutilation problems using tooth movement rather than prostheses.www.indiandentalacademy.com
  13. 13. 4] Role of media, visual as well as print - Articles in magazines ,news paper as well as community programs have increased patient awareness towards health & esthetics. 5] Better management of TMJ dysfunction. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  14. 14. 6] More effective management of skeletal jaw dysplasias with advanced orthognathic surgical techniques. 7] Reduced vulnerability to periodontal breakdown as a result of improved tooth relationships and occlusal functions. 8] A broader understanding of the biology of the tooth movement especially with regard to age changes. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  15. 15. 9] Ingenious approaches to anchorage management such as implants. 10] Role of Insurance companies – in the US 11] Affluence – Improving socioeconomic standards makes orthodontics more affordable today . www.indiandentalacademy.com
  16. 16. INDICATIONS (RAVINS) 1) Improvement of tooth-periodontal tissue relationship. 2) Establishing an improved plane of occlusion to distribute the forces of occlusion better. 3) Balancing the existing space for better prosthetic replacement. 4) Improve occlusion and coordination between the muscle and TMJ. 5) Improve patient esthetic.www.indiandentalacademy.com
  17. 17. CONTRAINDICATIONS (BARRER) 1) Severe skeletal discrepancies. 2) Advanced local or systemic disease. 3) Excessive alveolar bone loss. 4) Poor stability prognosis – tooth movt into unfavourable positions. 5) Lack of patient motivation & co- operation, resistance to wear the appliance.www.indiandentalacademy.com
  18. 18. 6) Inability to prevent excessive hard/soft tissue destruction 7)Inadequate space for tooth movt 8)Movt of teeth against occlusal opposition or into occlusal trauma 9)No improvement in PDL health, function/esthetics. 10)Negative anchorage potential – movt of teeth against inadequate anchorage. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  19. 19. CONTRAINDICATIONS (Marks and Corn) • Advanced systemic disease • Lack of patient motivation. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  20. 20. 1] Younger adults (under 35, often in their 20’s) 2] Older patients (in their 40’s and 50’s) [Proffit-Fields] 2 GROUPS OF ADULT ORTHODONTIC PATIENTS www.indiandentalacademy.com
  21. 21. YOUNGER GROUP Goal – Comprehensive treatment & maximum possible improvement; improved quality of life. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  22. 22. Reasons for not receiving orthodontic treatment early 1) Did not desire treatment. 2) Were not aware of orthodontic treatment. 3) Parents could not afford. 4) Were not given proper advise by family dentist. 5) No orthodontist located in the vicinity. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  23. 23. 6) Incomplete orthodontic treatment when younger or were uncooperative. 7) Had orthodontic treatment as children but relapse occurred. 8) More conscious of appearance with age. 9) Anterior teeth started to crowd or minor crowding becomes worse. 10) Dissatisfaction with the outcome of previous treatment www.indiandentalacademy.com
  24. 24. OLDER GROUP Goal - - Maintain proper dental health. - For easy & effective control of disease & restoration of missing teeth. - As an adjunctive procedure to the larger periodontal & restorative goals ; not necessarily interested in the ideal result. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  25. 25. Reasons for seeking orthodontic treatment 1) Malposed teeth contributing to PDL disease. 2) Increased difficulties with mastication. 3) Anterior spaces enlarging or new ones developing. 4) For better tooth positioning prior to prosthetic preparation. 5) Tooth interferences & mandibular slide causing TMJ problems. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  26. 26. ADOLESCENT vs ADULT ORTHODONTIC PATIENT Levitt : “In adult patient there is no growth and only tooth movement”. Barrer : “Adult, unlike the child is a relentless patient, who will not cover our deficiencies in skills or our errors in the use of mechanical procedures by helpful settling in post-treatment.” www.indiandentalacademy.com
  27. 27. • Ackerman : “In a child ,one occasionally calls on another specialist. On the other hand it is a rare adult whom one treats orthodontically without finding it necessary to collaborate with another specialist.” www.indiandentalacademy.com
  28. 28. • Adults – orthodontic treatment is based on symptoms detected by the patient • Children - treatment is based more often on signs detected by practitioners/parents. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  29. 29. • Adult – seeks treatment more often for esthetics & hence is likely to have unreasonable expectations about the outcome, is less adaptable to the appliance & is uncompromising in appraisal of the Rx results. • Brighter side – cleaner, more careful, punctual, prompt paying, much less sensitive to pain & Rx time is either same/less than that for younger patients. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  30. 30. FIVE MAJOR CATEGORIES IN WHICH ADULT PATIENTS SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFER FROM THEIR ADOLESCENT COUNTERPARTS 1) Clarification & individualization of treatment objectives 2) The diagnostic process 3) Treatment plan selection 4) Acceptance of recommended therapy 5) Achievement of treatment objectives www.indiandentalacademy.com
  31. 31. 1) Clarification & individualization of treatment objectives- This requires specific study of the problem & the indicated therapeutic refinements. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  32. 32. 2) The diagnostic process- Problem oriented dental record aides in making the appropriate diagnosis, for it requires that the patient’s problems be listed and a plan be developed to manage each problem. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  33. 33. Diagnostic steps: 1) Collect data accurately. 2) Analyze data base. 3) Develop problem list. 4) Prepare tentative treatment plan. 5) Interact with those who are involved; discuss plans and options; clarify sequence, acquire patient acceptance. 6) Create final treatment plan. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  34. 34. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  35. 35. Before starting the treatment, the orthodontist needs to be prepared to do the following: 1) Diagnose different stages of PDL disease and their associated risk factors. 2) Diagnose TMJ dysfunction before, during or after tooth movement. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  36. 36. 3) Determine which cases require surgical management and which ones require incisor reangulation to camouflage the skeletal base discrepancy. 4) Work cooperatively with team of other specialists to give the patient the best outcome. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  37. 37. 3) Treatment plan selection- More systemic & detailed analysis is required for adults than for adolescents. Factor affecting treatment plan selection: i) Existing oral pathology: - dental caries - periodontal disease - faulty restoration - TMJ adaptability - occlusal awarenesswww.indiandentalacademy.com
  38. 38. ii) Skeletal relationship. iii) Biological consideration: - neuromuscular maturity/adaptability . - periodontal susceptibility:bone loss/gingival inflammation . - rate of tooth movement. - growth. iv) Therapeutic approach available: - functional appliances. - orthognathic surgery. - restorative dentistry.www.indiandentalacademy.com
  39. 39. v) Extraction therapy: 4 PM / asymmetric, lower incisor. vi) Anchorage requiremen: headgear / completely erupted 1st & 2nd molars vii) Missing teeth: space closure without / with prostheses www.indiandentalacademy.com
  40. 40. 4) Patient‟s acceptance of the treatment plan- Patients thorough understanding of & agreement with the recommended Rx are necessary. Also, an informed consent should be signed i) Sociobehavioral interaction: - Office environment: group / privacy - Team coordination, interaction: multidisciplinary approach ii) Duration of treatment. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  41. 41. iii) Cost of treatment: with/without insurance cover iv) Perceived risk/benefit ratio: more benefits compared to minimal risks v) Appliance selection. vi) Insurance coverage www.indiandentalacademy.com
  42. 42. • Vii) Negative conditioning: in the past . viii) Positive conditioning. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  43. 43. 5) Achievement of treatment objectives- -requires specific study of the problem & the indicated therapeutic refinements - depends on : i) Dental history. ii) Ability of the orthodontist to interface the treatment plan with those of other dental specialist. iii) skills and knowledge of orthodontist and staff. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  44. 44. LIMITATIONS OF TREATMENT 2 types of factors : • Intrinsic – Biological nature • Extrinsic – Biomechanical systems www.indiandentalacademy.com
  45. 45. INTRINSIC FACTORS • Most marked – Adult is no longer growing, so orthodontic Rx is limited to tooth movt & related modelling of the alveolar process only (may vary with the age & health ) • Periodontium – primary tissue to get affected. • Norton : decreasing blood flow & vascularity with increasing age – insufficient source of progenitor(preosteoblasts) cells – delayed response to mechanical stimulus. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  46. 46. • Alveolar bone – cortical bone becomes denser & spongy bone reduces with age & structure of bone changes from honeycomb to a network • Apical displacement of marginal bone level - local factor, age related but is also due to progressive PDL disease www.indiandentalacademy.com
  47. 47. • Teeth - adults are more likely to have missing teeth, teeth reduced in dimension due to attrition or teeth with large restorations. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  48. 48. EXTRINSIC FACTORS • Force system used differs from that used in young, growing individuals. • Forces used should be at a lower level than those used in children, as adults often have PDL problems & reduced bone support. • Initial forces should be further kept low as the immediate pool of cells available for resorption is low. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  49. 49. • M/F ratio for a particular tooth movt should be increased as per the periodontally compromised state of the dentition, to counter the tipping tendency. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  50. 50. • In the presence of marginal bone loss, light continuous intrusive forces should be maintained during tooth displacement. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  51. 51. !!! ADULT PROBLEMS DIFFICULT TO TREAT BY ORTHODONTICS !!! • Deep bite – extrusion of post teeth is not compensated for by condylar growth • Posterior crossbite – arch expansion is not stable • Skeletal discrepancies – since growth is complete. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  52. 52. ADULT ORTHODONTICS DR SANKET AGARKAR PART II MDS (ORTHODONTICS), BVDCH, PUNE www.indiandentalacademy.com
  53. 53. 1) Dentofacial aesthetics 2) Stomatognathic function 3) Stability 4) Achieving Class I occlusion :ADULT ORTHODONTICS - TREATMENT OBJECTIVES www.indiandentalacademy.com
  54. 54. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  55. 55. ADDITIONAL ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT OBJECTIVES 1) Parallelism of abutment teeth : - Restoration will have better prognosis as excess cutting or devitalization during abutment preparation are avoided. - Allows for a better pdl response. - Allows for better retention.www.indiandentalacademy.com
  56. 56. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  57. 57. 2) Most favorable distribution of teeth : - Evenly for replacement of fixed/removable prostheses in the individual arches - Teeth should be positioned in such a way that occlusion of natural teeth can be established bilaterally between the arches. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  58. 58. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  59. 59. 3) Redistribution of occlusal and incisal forces – Helpful in case of significant bone loss, to maintain the occlusal vertical dimension. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  60. 60. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  61. 61. 4) Adequate embrasure space and proper root position – Allows for better pdl health, especially when placement of restorations is necessary. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  62. 62. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  63. 63. 5) Acceptable occlusal plane and potential for incisal guidance at satisfactory vertical dimension – For a mutilated dentition with bite collapse, the Hawley bite plane adjusted to the correct vertical height, is inserted – allows a centric relation at an acceptable vertical dimension, simulatneous bilateral neuromuscular activity; Curve of spee should be mild to flat bilaterally – unilateral orthodontic treatment of an accentuated occlusal plane should be avoided.www.indiandentalacademy.com
  64. 64. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  65. 65. 6) Adequate occlusal landmark relationships: - Most difficult dimension to correct & maintain orthodontically – transverse sagittal vertical. - Teeth must be positioned to achieve acceptable B-L landmarks. Post crossbites due to severe transverse skeletal dysplasias – maxillary buccal cusps contact lower central fossae with the crossover for incisal guidance in the PM or canine positions.www.indiandentalacademy.com
  66. 66. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  67. 67. 7) Better lip competency and support - Inadequate support may create change in antero-posterior and vertical position of upper lip and increase wrinkling. Some Class II, division 1 patients (surgery rejected) – lower incisors can be placed procumbent with bilateral posterior restorations – establish incisal guidance; avoids palatal tissue irritation. Some class III’s – maxillary incisors kept more flared than normal www.indiandentalacademy.com
  68. 68. 8) Improved crown/root ratio – In case of individual teeth bone loss, the crown to root ratio can be improved by decreasing the length of clinical crown with a high speed handpiece as the tooth is erupted orthodontically. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  69. 69. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  70. 70. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  71. 71. 9) Improvement/ correction of mucogingival and osseous defects:- Proper repositioning of prominent teeth in arch will improve gingival topography. Adolescents – brackets placed to level marginal ridges & cusp tips Adults – level crestal bone between adjacent CEJ’s; favorable osseous & soft tissue changes with tooth movt , diminished need for osseous/mucogingival surgery; continuous adjustment to prevent premature post teeth contact causing occlusal trauma.www.indiandentalacademy.com
  72. 72. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  73. 73. 10) Better self maintenance of pdl health: Location of gingival margin - determined by axial inclination & alignment of the tooth. For better periodontal health, teeth should be positioned properly over their basal bone support. 11) Esthetics and functional improvement: Rx= acceptable esthetics + improved muscle function + normal speech + mastication Therapeutic occlusion = ant teeth as disarticulators; post teeth support the vertical dimension. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  74. 74. Treatment planning Usual sequence of procedure is as follows – • Eliminate all pathology (caries, PDL disease, retained roots, etc) • Orthodontic Rx • Periodontal re-evaluation (& therapy if necessary) • Prosthetic restoration (when necessary) • Orthodontic retention • Periodontal maintenance • Occlusal adjustment (grinding) whenever necessary www.indiandentalacademy.com
  75. 75. BIOMECHANICAL CONSIDERATIONS: - Control of anchorage requires that anchor teeth should not be allowed to tip. - Fixed appliance is necessary. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  76. 76. • Adult patients demand for removable appliance but they are not useful in adjunctive treatment. - But in case of multiple missing teeth removable appliance is useful. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  77. 77. Placement of brackets • A=ideal position – uprighting of ant teeth (movt of anchor teeth is undesirable) • B=brackets placed in position of max convenience- maintains existing tooth alignmentwww.indiandentalacademy.com
  78. 78. • - In case of reduce periodontal support and bone loss , lighter forces and relatively larger movements are needed. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  79. 79. TIMING AND SEQUENCE OF TREATMENT:- - Before any type of tooth movement any caries or pulpal pathology should be eliminated. - Larger restoration require detail occlusal anatomy should be carried out after orthodontic treatment is over. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  80. 80. - Periodontal disease should be controlled before any tooth movement. - Scaling, curettage and gingival graft should be carried out before treatment. - Surgical pocket elimination and osseous surgery should be carried out after orthodontic treatment. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  81. 81. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  82. 82. Psychological considerations • Children & adolescents – motivation for ortho Rx = parent’s desire; not emotionally involved in their own Rx • Adults – seek ortho Rx because they themselves want something, that is not always clearly expressed=hidden set of motivations/unrealistic expectations • Imp – explore why pt wants Rx & why now “Ortho Rx cannot repair personal relationships, save jobs, or overcome a series of financial disasters” - Proffitwww.indiandentalacademy.com
  83. 83. • Most adults – have realistic expectations, more positive self image than average, a good deal of ego strength. • Internally motivated responds well to Rx than externally motivated. • Demand for invisible orthodontic appliances- unrealistic for a patient to expect that ortho Rx can be carried out without other people knowing about it www.indiandentalacademy.com
  84. 84. • Sometimes - Rx in a pvt area if the patient demands so; Most adults – learning from interacting with other patients = beneficial • Patient handling – Adolescents = passive acceptance of what is being done Adults = considerble degree of explanation of what is happening & why; Interest in Rx does not automatically translate into compliance with instructions www.indiandentalacademy.com
  85. 85. • Adults – less tolerant of discomfort & more likely to complain about pain after adjustments & about difficulties in speech, eating & tissue adaptations. Additional chair time to meet these demands should be anticipated www.indiandentalacademy.com
  86. 86. ACCORDING TO PROFFIT ADULT ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT IS DIVIDED IN TO 3 PARTS: 1) ADJUNCTIVE TREATMENT. 2) COMPREHENSIVE TREATMENT FOR ADULTS. 3) SURGICAL TREATMENT. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  87. 87. DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ADJUNCTIVE TREATMENT AND COMPREHENSIVE TREAMTMENT IS INDISTINCT,AS ANY TREAMENT WHICH REQUIRE MORE THAN 6 MONTHS IS CALLED AS COMPREHENSIVE TREATMENT. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  88. 88. ADJUNCTIVE TREATMENT- “ Tooth movement carried out to facilitate other dental procedures necessary to control disease and restore function.” www.indiandentalacademy.com
  89. 89. GOALS - 1) Facilitates restorative treatment by positioning the teeth. 2) Improve periodontal health by removing plaque harboring areas . 3) Establishing favourable crown to root ratio and position of the teeth. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  90. 90. PROCEDURES CARRIED OUT IN ADJUNCTIVE TREATMENT : - 1) Up righting posterior teeth. 2) forced eruption. 3) alignment of anterior teeth. 4) cross bite correction. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  91. 91. ETIOLOGY OF ADULT TOOTH MALPOSITION:- 1) DENTAL ORIGIN 2) SKELETAL ORIGIN www.indiandentalacademy.com
  92. 92. 1) DENTAL ORIGIN:- a) Faulty eruption from the normal functional position. b) Insufficient arch length. c) Excessive arch length. d) Prolonged retention of primary teeth. e) Ectopic eruption. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  93. 93. g) Prolonged finger and thumb sucking habits. h) Clenching and grinding. i) Improper swallow pattern with tongue thrusting. j) Effects of tongue pressure on the anterior teeth. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  94. 94. k) Macroglossia. l) Premature loss of deciduous teeth. m) Loss of permanent teeth. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  95. 95. 2) SKELETAL ORIGIN:- a) Cleft palate. b) Gross mediolateral disharmony of the craniofacial skeleton. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  96. 96. UPRIGHTING POSTERIOR TEETH:- www.indiandentalacademy.com
  97. 97. • Loss of 1st perm molars – frequent problem in adults = adjacent teeth drift, tip/ rotate, gingival tissue becomes folded forming a pseudopocket. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  98. 98. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  99. 99. 1) If third molar is present , whether both second and third molar should be uprighted. 2) Whether to upright tipped teeth by distal crown tipping(increased space for a pontic) or by mesial root movement (reduce/close the edentulous space) – depending on the position of the teeth, occlusion desired, anchorage available, contour of the bone in the edentulous area www.indiandentalacademy.com
  100. 100. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  101. 101. 3) Whether slight extrusion is permissible or maintain the existing occlusal height during uprighting – tipping the tooth distally extrudes it, reduces the depth of the pseudopocket found on the mesial surface. Also, the crown-root ratio will be improved if the ht of the clinical crown is systematically reduced as the uprighting proceeds 4) Whether premolar should be repositioned or not – depending on the existing contacts, opposing intercuspation, restorative plan; mostly yes – close spaces between premolars=improves PDL prognosis & long term stability. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  102. 102. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  103. 103. APPLIANCE FOR MOLAR UPRIGHTING:- - Partial fixed appliance. - Anchorage –heavy stabilizing lingual arch (canine-to-canine). - Placement of brackets on canine and premolars(anchorage unit) – bonding preferred to banding – decreased gingival irritataion. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  104. 104. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  105. 105. • Molar to be uprighted – should have a combination attachment consisting of a wide twin bracketwith a convertible cap & a auxillary tube. • Lingual buttons/cleats should be welded to bands – if rotations/crossbites are also to be corrected www.indiandentalacademy.com
  106. 106. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  107. 107. UPRIGHTING A SINGLE MOLAR:-  Moderately tipped molar:- Flexible rect wire - 17x25 braided s.s, if the anchor teeth are relatively well aligned - 17x25 Ni-Ti, if the anchor teeth require alignment. Relieve occlusal contacts against the molar, otherwise mobility, increased Rx time  Severely tipped molar:- -stiff 19x25 s.s in the anchor segment - Uprighting spring ( 17x25 beta- Ti without helical loop/ 17x25 ss with loop)- mesial arm should hook over the stabilizing wire, Hook –should be free to slide distally as the molar uprights www.indiandentalacademy.com
  108. 108. • Slight lingual bend in the spring – to counter the forces that tend to tip the anchor teeth buccally & molar lingually • Frequent occlusal adjustments reqd to reduce developing interferences www.indiandentalacademy.com
  109. 109. Uprighting with minimal extrusion • After initial alignment with a light flexible wire, sectional “ T- loop” - 17x25 s.s - 19x25 beta-Ti Uprighting force on the molar- root mesial crown distal • Activation of T-loop by 1 to 2 mm – done when the pontic space is to be closed.www.indiandentalacademy.com
  110. 110. modified T-loop. • In severely rotated teeth • End of archwire inserted through the distal of the tube. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  111. 111. Final positioning of molars and premolars. • After molar uprighting – increase the available pontic space & close open contacts in the anterior segment • Use of compressed coil spring - steel - A Ni-Ti; Stiff base arch = 17x25 ss/ 18 ss in 22 slot • Occlusion should be checked carefully for the desired movt . www.indiandentalacademy.com
  112. 112. Unilateral/bilateral uprighting www.indiandentalacademy.com
  113. 113. Uprighting 2 molars in the same quadrant • Since resistance is high, only small amounts of space closure should be attempted (unilaterally) • Combination of mesial root & distal crown tipping • 3rd Molar should carry a single rect tube & cap should be removed from the convertible bracket on the 2nd molar. • 2nd molar –usually more tipped than the 3rd –increased flexibility of wire mesial & distal to it is required. • Best approach = use of a highly flexible wire initially = 17x25 NiTi www.indiandentalacademy.com
  114. 114. Duration • Distal crown tipping faster than mesial root movt • Usually 8-10 weeks • Occlusal interferences –prolong Rx time • up righting 2 molars with mesial root movt may take 20-24 wks www.indiandentalacademy.com
  115. 115. RETENTION • Prosthesis –provides long term retention – should be placed within 6 wks • For shorter period – 19x25 ss /21x25 TMA designed to fit the brkts passively • For a longer period= - Intracoronal wire splint-19x25 or heavier ss wire bonded into shallow preparations on the abutment tooth www.indiandentalacademy.com
  116. 116. Segmental approach to mandibular molar uprighting - Roberts, Chacker, and Burstone • Stages of fabrication of the uprighting spring. [AJODO:1982 Mar (177 - 184)] 18X25 ss in 22 slot www.indiandentalacademy.com
  117. 117. Buccal and occlusal views (photographed at different stages of treatment) of the molar- uprighting appliance. The spring is offset lingually in the edentulous area for added patient comfort. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  118. 118. Anterior stabilizing segment • A lingual arch wire (approximately 0.032 inch) bonded, or soldered to bands, from canine to canine. Bonding the mandibular incisors to the lingual arch wire adds stability to these periodontally involved teeth. • Buccal edgewise brackets (0.018 or 0.022 inch slots) banded or bonded to the canine and premolars in the involved quadrant(s). The canine bracket contains two horizontal slots. • A full-size rectangular stabilizing wire passing from canine to premolar(s), stopped at both ends in order to prevent spacing and inserted into the occlusal slot of the canine bracket.www.indiandentalacademy.com
  119. 119. Jan Lindhe • Definite osseous defect due to periodontitis on the mesial surface of the inclined molar, uprighting, tipping distally = widen the defect • Furcation defects & orthodontic Rx: remain the same or worsen especially in the presence of inflammation (Burch et al, 1992) • Hence, initial PDL therapy & excellent oral hygiene & control of forces avoiding extrusion as much as possible are required. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  120. 120. • 1st described in 1973 by Heithersay • Elevates the root, expands PDL fibers results in coronal shift of marginal gingiva & bone. [Jan Lindhe] FORCED ERUPTION www.indiandentalacademy.com
  121. 121. • Indications:- - Defects in cervical third . - teeth with 1 or 2 walled vertical periodontal defects Due to - horizontal/oblique fracture -internal/external resorption -decay -pathologic perforation -PDL disease www.indiandentalacademy.com
  122. 122. Advantages • Improved endodontic access • Allow isolation under rubber dam, when not possible otherwise • Crown margins can be placed on sound tooth structure • Uniform gingival contour maintained-improved esthetics • Alv bone ht & bony support of adjacent teeth is not compromised • Apparent crown length is maintained • Maintains biologic width www.indiandentalacademy.com
  123. 123. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  124. 124. TREATMENT PLANNING:- - Periapical radiograph = for vertical extent of the defect, PDL support, root morphology & position; check for hypercementosis/dilaceration - Single tapering root morphology – ideal; flared and divergent root morphology – increasing root proximity with extrusion. - Endodontic therapy = before/after orthodontic Rx www.indiandentalacademy.com
  125. 125. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  126. 126. How much tooth should be extruded can be determine by 3 factors:- 1) Location of the defect.(fracture line, root perforation) 2) Space to place margin of the restoration, so that it is not at thebase of the gingival sulcus(1 mm) 3) An allowance for the biological width of the gingival attachment.(2 mm) crown-root ratio at the end of treatment should be 1:1 or better www.indiandentalacademy.com
  127. 127.  Duration:- depends on age of the pt, dist the tooth has to be moved, PDL viability - 1mm/week without damaging pdl. - 3 to 6 week. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  128. 128. TECHNIQUE • Appl – quite rigid over the anchor teeth, flexible where it attaches to the extruding tooth • Continuous flexible wire is contraindicated-produce the desired extrusion but would also tip the adjacent teeth towards the teeth being extruded, reducing the space for the pontic & disturbing the interproximal contacts www.indiandentalacademy.com
  129. 129. 2 METHODS Without orthodontic bracket. Heavy 19x25/21x25 ss bonded directly to the facial surfaces of teeth; Post & core with temporary crown, pin on the Rx tooth & an E module/ auxiliary NiTi spring is used to extrude the toothwww.indiandentalacademy.com
  130. 130. With orthodontic brackets - better control. • Brackets are placed- more occlusally on anchor teeth than its ideal position; more gingivally on the Rx tooth • T-loop arch wire - - 17x25 s.s - 19x25 beta-Ti Part of the T loop engaging the tooth to be extruded should lie more occlusal than the anchor segment www.indiandentalacademy.com

  168. 168. Managing Treatment for the Orthodontic Patient With Periodontal Problems David P. Mathews and Vincent G. Kokich (Semin Orthod 1997;3:21-38.) • Generally, 2 to 3 mm of root separation will provide adequate bone and embrasure space to improve periodontal health. • During this time the patient should be maintained by their restorative dentist or periodontist to ensure that a favorable bone response will occur as the roots are moved apart. • In addition, these patients will need occasional occlusal adjustment to recontour the crown as the roots are moving apart. As this happens, the crowns may develop an unusual occlusal contact with the opposing arch. This should be equilibrated to improve the occlusion.www.indiandentalacademy.com
  169. 169. Position teeth for single tooth implant 3 factors that determine the space available for implant 1-space needed for implant itself - Minimum 6mm of space is required =1mm between the implant & adjacent teeth for proper healing & adequate space for the papilla + 4 mm width of the implant at the shoulder 2- esthetics= contra lateral & adjacent teeth for the prosthetic replacement - size, bilateral symmetry 3- occlusion =less than ideal space for implant due to crowding www.indiandentalacademy.com

  172. 172. Interdisciplinary Management of Single-Tooth Implants Frank M. Spear, David M. Mathews, and Vincent G. Kokich (Semin Orthod 1997;3:45-72.) • If the implant is placed and restored too early, relative to the patient's tooth eruption, the reaction of the implant will be similar to that of an ankylosed tooth. The adjacent teeth may erupt, and a discrepancy will be created between the gingival margins of the implant and the natural teeth. • In a patient with a high lip line, this could be esthetically unacceptable. For these reasons patients should have completed the majority of their tooth eruption before the placement of an implant. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  173. 173. • It is advisable to wait until an adolescent male has completed growth in height (as late as their early 20s). In girls, the growth of the face is often completed by 15 years of age. Therefore, it may be possible to place implants for congenitally missing teeth as early as 15-17 yrs years in girls without the risk of eruption of adjacent teeth. • In adults, who lose a tooth, implant can be placed soon afterward-minimizes the loss of alveolar bone in the newly edentulous space • Maintaining primary teeth-even though their roots are partially resorbed, also helps in maintaining alveolar ridge height & width for implant placementwww.indiandentalacademy.com

Tooth movement through cortical bone • When a tooth is moved bodily in a labial direction towards & through the cortical plate, no bone formation takes place in front of the tooth - Experimental studies in animals • After initial thinning of the bone plate, a labial bone dehiscence is hence created • Such perforation of the cortical plate can occur during orthodontic Rx either accidentally or because it was considered unavoidablewww.indiandentalacademy.com
  201. 201. • Cortical plate perforation & root resorption may happen: - In the mandibular ant region due to frontal expansion of incisors (facial root tipping) [Wehrbein et al; AJODO 1994:106:455-462] - In the maxillary post region during lat expansion of cross-bites [Greenbaum, Zachrisson; AJODO 1982:81:12-21] - Lingually in the maxilla associated with retraction & lingual root torque of maxillary incisors in patients with large overjets [Ten Hoeve, Mulie; JCO 1976:6:804-822] - By pronounced traumatic jiggling of teeth [Nyman et al ]www.indiandentalacademy.com

  205. 205. • Cephalometric films of 107 adults were measured to determine the width of alveolar bone anterior and posterior to the incisor apex in each arch. • Thin alveolar widths were found both labial and lingual to the mandibular incisors in groups of Class I, II, and III individuals with high SN-MP angle and in a group of Class III average SN-MP individuals. • Thin alveolar widths were also found lingual to the maxillary incisors in a Class II high angle group. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  206. 206. • The labial and lingual cortical plates at the level of the incisor apex may represent the anatomic limits of tooth movement. • Clinical cases showed that orthodontic tooth movement may be limited in patients with narrow alveolar bone widths and that these patients are likely to experience increased iatrogenic sequelae (root resorption, bone loss, gingival recession). www.indiandentalacademy.com
  207. 207. Edwards J G [AJODO 1976] : • Studied a large group of individuals with Class II malocclusion and bidental protrusion. • He noted that despite prolonged palatal retraction and root torquing of incisors, the width of the anterior palate at the level of the apex remained unchanged. The alveolus can, however, remodel at the mid-root level and at the alveolar margin when the lingual cortex is approached and passed. • He postulated an anatomic barrier against further tooth movement in the higher areas at the anterior palatal curvature as it approaches the horizontal vault.www.indiandentalacademy.com
  208. 208. Edwards J G: • A: The assumption is that the total alveolus can remodel to accommodate unlimited tooth movement. This is not seen in clinical practice. • B: The assumption is that only the midroot and marginal alveolus can remodel, while the bone at the level of the apex does not remodel and is thus a limit to orthodontic tooth movement. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  209. 209. Ten Hoeve and Mulie [JCO 1976] : • Studied tooth movement at each stage of the Begg technique in a group of adolescent patients using cephalometric x-rays, and laminagraphs • They concluded that while there is no anatomical limit to tooth movement in the marginal area of the alveolus, there is a definite limit to tooth movement as the apex abuts the palatal cortex. • In the mandible, following contact of the root with the lingual cortical plate of the symphysis, tooth movement comes to a standstill. Eventually, if greater forces are applied, a perforation or dehiscence results.www.indiandentalacademy.com
  210. 210. The measurements used in this study are illustrated below : • UP -Bone posterior (lingual) to upper incisor apex. Apex of the maxillary central incisors to the limit of the palatal cortex, along a plane parallel to the palatal plane, drawn through the apex. • UA -Bone anterior (labial) to upper incisor apex. Apex of the maxillary central incisors to the limit of the labial cortex, along a plane parallel to ANS-PNS, drawn through the apex. • LP -Bone posterior (lingual) to mandibular incisor apex. Apex of the mandibular central incisor to the limit of the lingual cortex, along a plane parallel to the occlusal plane, drawn through the apex. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  211. 211. • LA -Bone anterior (labial) to mandibular incisor apex. Apex of the mandibular central incisors to the limit of the labial cortex, along a plane parallel to the occlusal plane, drawn through the apex. • UH -Bone superior to upper incisor apex. The shortest distance from the maxillary incisor apex to the ANS-PNS plane. • LH -Bone inferior to mandibular incisor apex. The shortest distance from the apex of mandibular incisor apex to the lowest point on the mandibular synthesis that is transected by a line parallel to occlusal plane. www.indiandentalacademy.com

  214. 214. Repositioning teeth beyond the alveolar housing: Mulhe and Ten Hoeve - • If the apex was moved beyond the alveolus, the cortex in that region would not significantly remodel and the lingual cortical plate of the symphysis could be perforated. • The combination of age and the extremely thin alveolus can contribute to the perforation by the apex. • Long-term stabilization not only prevents mobility, but will possibly allow for remodeling repair of the bone loss on the lingual of the incisors.www.indiandentalacademy.com
  215. 215. Conclusions 1. Cephalometric measurements were established for the various combinations of horizontal and vertical facial types for the width of bone labial and lingual to the incisor apices. 2. A narrow alveolus was frequently noted around the mandibular incisors in high SN-MP groups and in the Class III average group. A thin alveolus was often noted lingual to the maxillary incisor apex in the Class II high SN-MP group. 3. While individuals of any facial type could have a thin alveolus, this was rarely seen in low SN-MP groups or in the Class I average SN-MP group.www.indiandentalacademy.com
  216. 216. 4. Clinical cases demonstrate that the palatal wall of the maxilla and the posterior cortex of the symphysis represent “orthodontic walls” or barriers to tooth movement. 5. While the iatrogenic response to challenging the anatomic limits is variable, the severity of this response can compromise the periodontal support of the incisors involved. 6. Norms for alveolar width in the Class I average group are presented. A simplified prediction can be achieved using overlay acetate tracings of the projected treatment.www.indiandentalacademy.com
  217. 217. 7. Patients with either narrow alveolar width or severe skeletal discrepancies are most likely to demonstrate limitation in orthodontic correction and may require surgery. 8. These same patients are also likely to exhibit severe iatrogenic loss of periodontal support when tooth movement challenges the “orthodontic walls” represented by the dense cortical plates at the level of the incisor apices. 9. The width of the anterior alveolus combined with a visualized treatment projection can be used in determining if the borderline patient is best treated via conventional orthodontics or a combined orthodontic-surgical program. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  218. 218. Root resorption in adults • Orthodontic treatment and apical root resorption have been associated for many years • The exact nature of the initiation and control of apical root resorption remains essentially unknown. • Although apical root resorption may occur in individuals who have never experienced orthodontic tooth movement (normal physiological process, perhaps akin to continuous bone remodeling), the incidence among treated individuals is quite high [Etiology and Sequelae of Root Resorption : Vicki Vlaskalic, Robert L. Boyd, and Sheldon Baumrind: Semin Orthod 1998;4:124-131] www.indiandentalacademy.com
  219. 219. • It must be concluded from the body of evidence existing in the literature that the sequelae of orthodontically related resorption does not pose a long-term threat to the patient. • Long-term treatment outcome studies reported on the frequent detection of resorption but of only minor nature and with no discernible clinical significance. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  220. 220. Lupi, Handelman, Sadowsky : AJODO 1996 : 109:28-37 : they used periapical radiographs of maxillary and mandibular incisors to measure apical root resorption. • Sample : 88 ethnically and racially diverse adults • Result : 15% of teeth had resorption before treatment and that this increased to 73% after at least 12 months of fixed appliance treatment. • Although only 2% of the teeth showed moderate (beyond blunting and up to one third of root length) to severe (beyond one third of root length) resorption before treatment, 24.5% displayed this severity after treatment. Two percent of patients experienced resorption beyond one third of the original root length. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  221. 221. Risk factors of root resorption : Mirabella, Artun : AJODO 1995:108:48-55 • Sample : 343 patients, aged 20.0 to 70.1 years at T-1 (mean 34.5, SD 9.0) and treated for 0.6 to 5.2 years (mean 2.0, SD 0.7) • Type of initial malocclusion may not be of importance for amount of apical root resorption during treatment. Some believe that overjet is a powerful predictor for resorption • Treatment time was not detected as a predictor for resorption. • Mean apical root resorption of the most severely resorbed central and lateral incisor and canine per patient was 1.47 mm (SD 1.40), 1.63 mm (SD 1.24), and 1.25 mm (SD 1.52), respectively.www.indiandentalacademy.com
  222. 222. • Use of elastic forces may increase the risk of apical root resorption only on the tooth that support the elastics, probably because of jiggling movements of the anchor teeth. Therefore it seems that biomechanically complex orthodontic treatment may lead to an increased risk for apical root resorption. • In conclusion, amount of root movement and presence of long, narrow, and deviated roots increase the risk for apical root resorption. In addition, use of elastics may be a risk factor for the teeth that support the elastics. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  223. 223. Baumrind, Korn, and Boyd : AJODO 1996:110:311-320 • Studied the relationship between the magnitude and direction of movement of the upper central incisor apex with apical root resorption in orthodontically treated adults • Magnitude of displacement was measured on lateral cephalograms with resorption measured on standardized anterior periapical radiographs (points were digitized in random order). • Sample : 81 nongrowing patients, who were treated in the offices of 3 experienced orthodontic specialists. • The mean apical resorption was 1.36 mm (SD ± 1.46; range = -1.03 to 5.58). www.indiandentalacademy.com
  224. 224. • An average of 0.99 mm(standard error ± 0.34) of root resorption was implied in the absence of root displacement and an average of 0.49 mm (standard error = ±0.14) of resorption was implied per millimeter of retraction. • With the exception of incisor retraction, the assumption that certain tooth movements are associated with differences in resorption response was not corroborated in this study. • The other statistically significant positive finding was that resorption is likely to occur even when the apex of the tooth does not appear to move. The latter may be consistent with either apical root resorption occurring in untreated populations or with jiggling movements produced in treatmentwww.indiandentalacademy.com

  248. 248. Post Surgical Orthodontic Treatment • Post 1 week: check occlusion, splint and appliances • 4-6 weeks: reinitiate orthodontic tx (after range of motion and stability are achieved) • Remove splint; change to light wires and light vertical elastics • Treatment usually completed in 4 to 12 months (average 6 months) www.indiandentalacademy.com
  249. 249. Relapse and Stability • Rigid fixation has improved stability • Stability is mostly influenced by the pattern of rotation of the mandible as it is advanced • Advancement of maxilla and/or mandible will stretch soft tissues promoting relapse • The more advancement needed, the greater the probability for relapse www.indiandentalacademy.com

  251. 251. SUMMARY:- There is wide variety of etiology that can cause an adult malocclusion. Also each patient’s need for treatment are different so treatment should be carried out taking his/her needs in consideration. Adult orthodontic treatment helps by facilitating other dental procedures, controlling disease and restoring function.www.indiandentalacademy.com
