Accelerated orthodontic tooth movement

  1. 1. Accelerated Orthodontic Tooth Movement: In Light of Evidence Presenter: Dr. Aisha Khoja Supervisors: Dr. Fida Dr. Attiya
  2. 2.  Biomechanical approach  Physiological/mechanical approach  Pharmacological approach  Surgical-assisted approach  Surgery-simulated approach POSSIBLE APPROACHES
  3. 3. • No steel/elastomeric ligatures • Frictional force of ligatures ( O configuration)= 50 g • Reduced friction- especially passive design • Less force required for tooth movement • More physiological in terms of PDL vascular supply • More alveolar bone generation, greater expansion, less proclination of anterior teeth, less need for extractions Kapur et al: • Friction per bracket with Ni-Ti archwires-41g under conventional ligation and 15g with Damon system • For SS wires: 61g (conventional); 3.6g (self ligating) BIOMECHANICAL APPROACH Self Ligating Bracket System
  4. 4. • Despite low friction, do not perform faster alignment/ space closure • They are narrower than conventional brackets- effect of binding due to tipping is greater- increased resistance • Short chair side time and less incisor proclination (1.5 degree) Self Ligating Brackets- Current Evidence BIOMECHANICAL APPROACH 1.Chen SS et al. Systemic review of self ligating brackets. Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop.2010;137:726e1:726e18 2. Fleming PS, Johal A. Self ligating brackets in orthodontics. A systemic review.

  5. 5. Beeson et al & Davidovitch et al: • Direct current : 7 volts & 15 microamperes • Anode : pressure side; Cathode: tension side • Degree of bone formation and resorption at electrically treated pressure & tension side was higher • Increase osteoblasts, PDL cells, osteoclasts Mechanism: • Direct current generate local response to increase AB turnover Disadvantages: • The device and battery providing electric current were bulky 1.

  10. 10. • Light with 800-850nm wavelength (just above the visible light spectrum) penetrates cheeks and soft tissues over AB • 97% light lost , 3% excite intracellular enzymes and increase cellular activity in PDL and bone • Increase blood flow and may enhance tooth movement Advantage: • Can be adjusted to apply light to only anterior teeth, whole arch or posterior teeth LLL therapy: Photo-biomodulation (Biolux) PHYSIOLOGICAL/ MECHANICAL APPROACH

  17. 17. Mechanism: • Incorporation of a surgical procedure on interseptal bone distal to canine the time of extraction of first premolar, resistance is reduced • Rapid canine retraction through distraction (stretching) of PDL • This approach is based on distraction osteogenesis • Pressure side: Canine-interseptal bone complex transported distally inside the socket • Tension side: PDL distraction leading to osteogenesis 1.Rapid canine retraction via PDL distraction SURGICAL-ASSISTED APPROACH
  18. 18. Rapid canine retraction through distraction of PDL Procedure • At the time of extraction of 1st pm, socket is deepened to the same depth as canine with a 4mm round carbide bur • 1mm carbide fissure bur- to make two vertical grooves, running from socket bottom to the alveolar crest, on the MB and ML corners • These grooves are joined obliquely toward the base of interseptal bone Liou EJ, Haung CS. Rapid canine retraction through distraction of periodontal ligament. Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop. 1998;114: 372-383
  19. 19. Technique: • Mucoperiosteal flap reflected • Cortical holes made in alveolar bone from canine to 2nd pm curving apically to pass 3-5mm from apex • Connect the holes with tapering fissure • First premolar is extracted and buccal bone removed • Large osteotomes are used to mobilize the whole segment • Distraction : after 3 days of surgery • Activation of distractor: twice/day in morning and evening • 0.8mm/day • Can also be used to bring ankylosed tooth into position Disadvantage: • Aggressive and complicated Rapid canine retraction through dento-alveolar distraction SURGICAL-ASSISTED APPROACH Kisniscu RS et al.

  20. 20. • Local injury to the alveolar process reduces resistance to tooth movement and generate RAP • First described in 1892 (fitzpatrick Barry) Indications: • Resolve crowding and shorten treatment time • Accelerate canine retraction • Enhance post-orthodontic stability • Facilitate eruption of impacted teeth • Molar intrusion and open bite correction • Molar distalization Kole’s technique: • Flap raised, vertical cuts facially and lingually between and under teeth that did not penetrate all the way (only cortex) • Reduce resistance enhances en bloc movement of entire alveolar segment Corticotomy assisted orthodontic tooth movement SURGICAL-ASSISTED APPROACH
  21. 21. • Accelerated osteogenic orthdontics (AOO) /periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics Technique: • Full thickness flaps are reflected carefully beyond the apices to allow decortication around apices • Corticotomy cuts are made in the form of lines and dots • Small circular depressions were placed in facial surface of bone over maxillary anterior teeth • Bio-absorbable graft is placed (demineralized freeze dried bone) • Tooth movement- should be started after a weak • Tooth movement should be completed within 3-4 months Advantages of graft: • Reduces bone dehiscence/ fenestrations especially when lower incisors are advanced • Good healing of alveolar bone Wilcodontics SURGICAL-ASSISTED APPROACH
  22. 22.
