  • 1. INDIAN DENTAL ACADEMY Leader in continuing dental education
  • 2. CONTENTS o Types of tooth movements o Space discrepancies o Anchorage Classification o Differential force systems o Friction mechanics o Frictionless mechanics o Space closure in Begg
  • 3. Types of tooth movements o Uncontrolled tipping: M/F =0:1 - 5:1
  • 4. Types of tooth movements o Controlled tipping: M/F=7:1
  • 5. Types of tooth movements o Translation (bodily movement): M/F-10:1
  • 6. Types of tooth movements o Root movement- M/F ratio at or above 12:1 o Rotation -
  • 7. Space discrepancies o Up to 4mm- without extraction (except for third molars) o 5-9mm- without extraction/ extraction o 10mm or more- bicuspid extraction
  • 8. Anchorage To Anchor- to hold/ resist the movement of an object. “Give me a place to stand and I will move the earth.”Archimedes? Gaileo „Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.‟ In orthodontics: amount of movement of posterior teeth to close the extraction space in order to achieve selected treatment goals.
  • 9. Anchorage Classification o Group A: >75% space needed for anterior retraction. „Critical anchorage‟ o Group B: Equal movement of posterior and anterior teeth. o Group C: >75% space closure achieved through mesial movement of posterior teeth.

  • 11.
  • 12. Determinants of Space Closure o Amount of crowding o Anchorage o Axial inclination of canines and incisors o Midline discrepancies and symmetry o Vertical dimension
  • 13. Axial inclination of canines and incisors
  • 14. Biomechanics of space closure Centered “V” bend o Creates equal and opposite couples at the brackets. o The associated equilibrium forces at each bracket- equal and opposite – cancel each other out.
  • 15. Off-center bend Long segment- direction of tooth movement Short segment- larger moment
  • 16. Equilibrium situations
  • 17. Differential force systems Clockwise Counterclockwise Non existent Net moment= Counterclockwise
  • 18. Differential force systems Anchor unit Non-anchor unit
  • 19. Differential force systems Unequal moments in the same direction increase the effectiveness of the anchorage Unequal moments in opposite direction still favor the anchorage, if the molar moment is large
  • 20. Off- center bend o Long segment- direction of force short segment- opposite direction o Short segment- larger moment. Long segment- smaller moment o Tooth closest to the bend- anchor side opposite – non anchor side o Anchor side- bodily movement non-anchor side- tipping o Away from the centre- differential torque increases o More critical the anchorage- more distal the bend from the centre
  • 21. Components of force system o Alpha moment: acting on anterior teeth o Beta moment: acting on posterior teeth o Horizontal forces: mesiodistal o Vertical forces: intrusive-extrusive
  • 22. β > α β β=α < α
  • 23. Cuspid retraction
  • 24. I bicuspid retraction & Molar protraction
  • 25. o Friction mechanics/ Sliding mechanics Moments- continuous archwire Forces -auxiliaries o Frictionless mechanics
  • 26. o Orthodontic forces- not exceed capillary BP- Schwartz o Optimal force- minimum value of force that results in maximum rate of tooth movement- Smith o Rate of tooth movement increases with increase in force up to a point- no in crease in tooth movement-Quinn and Yashikawa o Friction- force dissipated, remainder transferred to supporting structures
  • 27. o Friction- function of relative roughness of 2 surfaces o Frictional force- 2 components 1. Frictional component- parallel to direction of motion & opposes motion 2. Perpendicular to one or both contacting surfaces o Friction=Coefficient of friction x normal force
  • 28. o Coefficient of static friction- force necessary to initiate movement o Coefficient of kinetic friction- force necessary to perpetuate motion
  • 29. Friction mechanics/ Sliding mechanics
  • 30. o Friction mechanics: force needed for 2 purposes *to overcome frictional resistance *to create bone remodeling
  • 31. Frictional effect on anchorage  Independent of area of contact  Plastic deformation- junctions begin to shear  Interlocking of roughness  Harder materials plow into surface of softer ones
  • 32. Total frictional resistance=sum of 1. Force necessary to shear all junctions 2. Resistance caused by interlocking of roughness 3. Plowing component of the total friction force
  • 33. Frictional effect on anchorage o “stick-slip” phenomenon- tooth movement slowed
  • 34. Dr. SAFEENA
  • 35. o ANCHORAGE: “Resistance to unwanted tooth movement.”- Proffit
  • 36. Anchorage Classification
  • 37. Off- center bend o Long segment- direction of force short segment- opposite direction o Short segment- larger moment. Long segment- smaller moment o Tooth closest to the bend- anchor Side opposite – non anchor o Anchor side- bodily movement non-anchor side- tipping o Away from the centre- differential torque increases o More critical the anchorage- more distal the bend from the centre
  • 38. Space Closure o Segmental mechanics o Sliding mechanics/Friction mechanics - Movement of bracket along archwire - Sliding of archwire through brackets and tubes

Archwire o Material- β-Ti >NiTi>Co-Cr>SS o Cross-section- rectangular >round o Surface texture Roughness- NiTi>β-Ti >Co-Cr>SS o Wire stiffness: stiffness = binding = friction Vertical dimension α stiffness o Effect of second order deflection- increase in angulation Complete leveling of arch prior to sliding mechanics
  • 43. Factors affecting frictional resistance 2. Bracket-Material  SS- most popular  Ceramic brackets- rough surface, low fracture toughnessCombination- greater loss of anchorage  Zirconia- esthetic Surface hardening treatment= increase fracture toughness Co-eff. of friction- similar to ceramic brackets  Plastic brackets – Ligature- deform- squeeze slot Ceramic reinforced with/without metal slot inserts.  Friction free brackets- special coating
  • 44. Factors affecting frictional resistance o Manufacturing process  Conventional Cast bracket- cutting procedures produce bulky brackets, rough surface  Sintered bracket- compact fusion of individual particles under heat, premoulded in smooth streamlined manner. Frictional resistance 40-45% less
  • 45. Factors affecting frictional resistance o Width of bracket- length of moment arm o Wider bracket- smaller contact angle o Inter bracket distance
  • 46. Factors affecting frictional resistance Controversial o Frank & Nikolai- wider bracket =greater friction -frequent binding o Narrow bracket=binding severe in nature o Kapila et al. wider bracket= elastomeric stretched more=greater force on wire
  • 47. Factors affecting frictional resistance 3. Ligation o Ligature wire o Elastomerics- adversely affected by oral environment, stress relaxation o Method of ligation
  • 48. Factors affecting frictional resistance Effect of ligature technique- Edward et al.  Elastomeric module  Elastomeric module in fig-of-8 pattern  SS ligature  Teflon coated ligatures Elastomeric module in fig-of-8 pattern- highest friction value Teflon coated ligatures- lowest mean static friction Self ligating brackets- only 12-23% of friction that of SS bracket. Kusy- composite ligature
  • 49. Factors affecting frictional resistance o Saliva- excellent lubricant/ adhesive behavior SS- adhesive, co-eff. of friction β-Ti - co-eff. of friction-50% of that in dry state Vary force levels in • h/o xerostomia • Radiation therapy • Anticholinergics
  • 50. Methods of force application o Elastics- synthetic rubber polymers Force degeneration depends on - Salivary enzymes - Mastication - Oral hygiene - Temperature - Increase ph of saliva= increase force decay rate

  • 55. Coil springs o NiTi coil springs- 150gms force o Expansion – according to manufacturer‟s instructions (1 ½ times their original length) o Smaller wire size, larger lumen=low LDR, consistent force for longer periods o Force variation- SS > Co-Cr > NiTi
  • 56. Elastics vs Coil springs Elastics Coil springs oEasy to use o More consistent space oEconomical closure oWork well in most o Rapid space closure clinical situations o Force decay occurs to a oRapid force decay rate oAffected by oral environment lesser extent o Minimally affected by temperature and other environmental factors oPatient compliance
  • 57. Tie backs vs NiTi coilsprings o 1991- Samuels, Rudge and Mair- rate of space closure o NiTi closed coil springs- significantly greater, - more consistent
  • 58. Recommendations for sliding mechanics o Bracket- SS material o Wire- SS material 18 slot- 16 x 22 or 0.016” 22 slot- 19 x 25 or 0.018” o Mechanics- complete leveling and aligning prior to retraction and establishing torque control o Force application- light, continuous, constant force
  • 59. Techniques o Separate canine and incisor retraction Edgewise  Alexander- Vari-simplex discipline  Viazis o En-masse anterior retraction  MBT Begg  Conventional Begg  Modified Begg  Refined Begg
  • 60. Vari-Simplex Discilpine o R. G. Wick Alexander o Vari- variety of brackets o Simplex- Archwire fabrication simplified o Maxillary cuspids retracted prior to anteriors - More control over molar anchorage - Cuspid into class one relation early in treatment
  • 61. Vari-Simplex Discilpine - Power chain + 0.016” round wire - Heavy forces- 250-300gms- cuspids rotate & tip lingually - Power chain changed every 4 wks - 4-6 months - Loop mechanics for anterior retraction
  • 62. Vari-Simplex Discilpine o 0.018 x 0.025” closing loop- anterior retraction
  • 63. Bio-Efficient Therapy- Anthony D. Viazis o Triangular (Viazis) bracket- friction 10 times lower o Bioforce wires- 11% reduction in friction o 2 parts 1. Alignment, leveling and space closure. 2. Finishing.

  • 72. Experimental evaluation of frictional resistance in the posterior segment using different wires and posterior attachments- Dr. Ashwini Joshi o Frictional resistance during en masse retraction in I premolar extraction condition in an edgewise setup o Rectangular steel wires in 3 sizes and six configurations of arch form were tested
  • 73. o Results – 1. 19 x 25 arch wire in general showed least value of friction 2. Frictional force –seen to reduce with increase in wire dimension 3. Frictional force values increased with increase in number of attachments through which wire was engaged 4. 19 x 25 wire without curvature recommended for en masse anterior retraction in case of young or periodontally comprised patients
  • 74. 5. For deep bite cases 18 x 25 arch wire with a curvature could provide reduced frictional values and better retraction 6. Wire sliding through-multiple attachments on either side – 19 x 25 –ideal for retraction 7. Adult patients and patients with high bone density – resistance to tooth movement is high – 18 x 25 smoother retraction 8. 17 x 25 –no significant advantage for en masse anterior retraction over 18 x 25 & 19 x 25 as regards frictional force.
