  1. 1. Tackling an iatrogenic problem!! INDIAN DENTAL ACADEMY Leader in continuing dental education www.indiandentalacademy.com www.indiandentalacademy.com
  2. 2. Introduction • All modern mechanics have a double scale of ladder ascendant & descendant , ascending from experiment to the invention of causes & descending from causes to the invention of new experiments • Anchorage plays a very vital role in orthodontics. Loss of anchorage can take place during • Aligning, leveling and retraction stages. www.indiandentalacademy. com
  3. 3. Reasons for anchor loss during aligning •Lower molars normally drift mesially to occupy the lee-way space after shedding of lower primary second molars which can be restricted by timely placement of lingual arch. •Anchorage requirement in upper arch is greater compared to lower arch •Improper positioning of brackets. www.indiandentalacademy. com
  4. 4. Reasons for anchor loss during retraction iatrogenic factors incorrect alpha & beta bends excessive forces used during retraction. posterior segments are not consolidated during retraction. Improper positioning of loop Improper bracket positioning www.indiandentalacademy. com
  5. 5. When in doubt use a wire applying lighter forces Anchorage reinforcement Use light Continuous force During aligning…. www.indiandentalacademy. com
  6. 6. How to control anchorage during leveling ? •Using light continuous forces •Maintain the direction of force •Rein force anchorage •Proper bracket positioning. www.indiandentalacademy. com

  13. 13. APPLIANCE DESIGN: • Modular appliance is made up of 0.016 x0.0 22 rectangular SS / TMA wire • Modular appliance consists of an omega loop touching the mesial aspect of buccal tube and there is an upward curve in the mesial part of the canine bracket, which ends in a hook on the upper or gingival part. www.indiandentalacademy. com
  14. 14. •The gingival part of the hook is helicoidally recurred with the end inward to avoid erosion of the vestibular mucosa. •Tip back bend of 45 degrees is given distal to omega loop . •The wire should be cinched distal to the molar buccal tube •The buccal segment should be contoured to prevent tissue impingement. www.indiandentalacademy. com
  15. 15. APPLIANCE DESIGN omega loop hook to engage elastics tip back bend of 45 degrees www.indiandentalacademy. com
  16. 16. •Class II elastics ( preferably blue or green ) applying 100 – 150 gm force are used from the hook mesial to canine and to the lower molar hook. •The modular sectional arch blocks the segment between the canine and the upper first molar in one unit , which it moves in distal direction. www.indiandentalacademy. com
  17. 17. BIOMECHANICS •Based on cantilever mechanism Mechanics of spring elastics www.indiandentalacademy. com
  18. 18. •These mechanics can effectively tip back an upper molar and rotate the molar mesial out. •Distal end of omega loop acts as a stop and applies the tipping force on upper molar.www.indiandentalacademy. com
  19. 19. •A light class II elastic is placed from lower arch •Class –II elastic is effective , not only because of its distal force but because a very large moment is produced tipping the molar distally. www.indiandentalacademy. com
  20. 20. • Class – II elastics can flare the lower arch, increase the vertical and steepen the occlusal plane. • Hence elastics are used for a short period of time. • Because the molars tip back rapidly, only a short period of class – II elastic wear is required leading to negligible side effects www.indiandentalacademy. com
