  1. 1. ORTHODONTIC BRACKET www.indiandentalacademy.com INDIAN DENTAL ACADEMY Leader in continuing dental education www.indiandentalacademy.com
  4. 4.  CRITICAL CONSIDERATIONS  CONCLUSION  BIBILOGRAPHY www.indiandentalacademy.com
  5. 5. INTRODUCTIONINTRODUCTION  As early as 1000 BC attempts has been made to treat malocclusions.  Appliances to move teeth have been found in Greek and Etruscan excavations.  Aulius Cornelius celsus (25 BC – 50 AD) advocated the use of finger pressure to align the teeth as active treatment for correction of malocclusion.  Pierre fauchard, the father of Modern of Dentristry, is generally given the credit for the first comprehensive discussion of “Regulating teeth”.  William E Mgill (1823-1896) was the first person to band teeth for active tooth movement. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  6. 6.  It was during the period (1855-1930) where orthodontics saw a new era the introduction of the Brackets. Brackets had a modest beginning in the form of Ribbon arch bracket designed by Edward Hartley Angle.  Angle introduced the edge wise bracket system 2 years before he died.  1958 Reed Holdaway made the 1st attempt to alter Bracket slots. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  7. 7.  Owing to the disadvantages of the standard edge wise bracket, in the year 1970 straight wire appliance was introduced by Andrews who initially put forth his 6 keys to normal occlusion and then set forth to satisfy them with an appliance which had incorporated in out, tip and torque (1st, 2nd , 3rd orders) tooth movements.  Dr. Ronald H Roth developed an appliance through clinical trial and error, starting with the standard Andrew Brackets and then altering the values and placement of the some Anterior brackets. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  8. 8. ORTHODONTIC BRACKET AND ITS PARTS  This term was introduced by Dr. Edward Hartley Angle in 1916 when he devised the ribbon arch appliance.  Raymond C. Thurow has defined bracket an orthodontic attachment secured to a tooth for the purpose of engaging on arch wire.  The meaning of the term bracket, a simple rigid L shaped structure, one arm of which is fixed to a vertical surface, the other projecting horizontally to support a weight, as a shelf. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  9. 9. PARTS OF A SIMPLE STRAIGHT WIRE BRACKET.  Base of the bracket.  Bracket width.  Slot Dimensions.  Angulation of attachments and slots. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  10. 10. Bracket Bases  Perforated Bases.  Mesh foil bases .  Sintered bases .  Bracket with undercuts milled or casted into the base. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  11. 11. Plastic based. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  12. 12. Ceramic Brackets .  Ceramic brackets, were first made available in the late 1980s  Basically there are 2 types of ceramic brackets poly crystalline, single crystal alumina.  Ceramic brackets bond to enamel by two different method. Mechanical retention. Chemical bonding . www.indiandentalacademy.com
  13. 13.  However the ceramic brackets that are available at present are not optimal and show some significant draw backs. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  14. 14. Metal brackets.  Before Angle Began his search for new materials, orthodontists made attachments from noble metals and their alloys.  In 1887 angle tried replacing noble metals with german silver  However,the mechanical and chemical properties of german silver were well below the modern demands.  The material that has truly displaced noble metals is stainless steel. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  15. 15. Titanium bracket.  One of the contents nickel in stainless steel being a potentially allergic material causes cutaneous sensitisation when in contact with the tissues.  This lead tothe advent of new metal which is more corrosion resistant and biocompatible.  The alternative was being the titanium. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  16. 16. Gold coated brackets.  Recently, gold – coated, stainless steel brackets have been introduced and has rapidly gained considerable popularity, particularly for maxillary posterior and mandibular anterior and posterior regions.  In lack of entirely satisfactory tooth-coloured or clear brackets, the gold coated brackets may be regarded as an esthetic improvement over stainless steel attachments, and they are neater and thus more hygienic than ceramic alternatives. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  17. 17. MANUFACTURING OF BRACKETS.  Stamped.  Casting.  Milling.  Sintering.  Metal injection moulding. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  18. 18. EVOLUTION OF THE EDGE WISE BRACKET  Before the angle system came into existence, orthodontics was being practiced in a highly individualistic manner.  During this time the orthodontics was in a chaotic condition.  There was a definitive to need to develop an standard appliance for precise tooth movements. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  19. 19.  Pierre fauchard a French physician in 1798 made first attempt to move tooth.  In1847 ,in New York Dwinell invented the regulating jack screw. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  20. 20.  In 1887, angle developed the prototype of the first bracket attachment (a delicate metal tube soldered to the band www.indiandentalacademy.com
  21. 21. THE E ARCH APPLIANCE (1907)  The basic E arch  The ribbed E arch www.indiandentalacademy.com
  22. 22.  The E arch without threaded ends www.indiandentalacademy.com
  23. 23.  The E arch with hooks as seen in the maxilla. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  24. 24. PIN AND TUBE APPLIANCE (1910)  This was the first appliance that employed a bracket and used bands on most of teeth.  It had its own disadvantages like(high degree of skill to obtain root parallelism,regular visit of patients,sacrifice of the ideal arch). www.indiandentalacademy.com
  25. 25. RIBBON ARCH APPLIANCE (1915)  It was actually the first Bracket, as such to be used in an orthodontic appliance.  The light wire technique also known as the begg techniques was build around this bracket developed by P. Raymond Begg of Australia. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  26. 26.  Advantages :  rotations  offers control of bucco- lingual and labio- lingual movements and both inciso- gingival and occluso -gingival movements  Disadvantages :  mesiodistal axial movements  Mesial and distal tipping bends  premolar teeth could not be moved bodily. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  27. 27. THE EDGE WISE APPLIANCE  This was one of the angle final achievement,  The term edge wise implies: The rectangular wire insert into the narrowed or edge wise position of the Bracket.  Angle introduced the edge wise bracket 2 years before he died. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  28. 28. SINGLE WIDTH BRACKET  Arch wire was secured on the bottom of the bracket slot  Because of narrow width, ineffective tooth rotation. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  29. 29. TWIN BRACKETS .  Also known as “Siamese twin brackets” by brainerd swain the originator of this bracket. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  30. 30.  Advantages :  ability to effect most of the tooth rotation  Maintain control of axial tooth inclinations.  “Positive control”  Disadvantages :  Inter bracket distance is increased  Resiliency in the arch wire is decreased  Difficulty in employing closing loop arch wires and second order bends www.indiandentalacademy.com
  31. 31. LEWIS BRACKET :  developed by Dr. Paul D Lewis. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  32. 32.  Advantages :  100% tooth rotation can be easily obtained and over correction of rotations.  They do not interfere with the activation of closing loops, second order bends and other arch wire fabrication.  Disadvantages :  Less control of axial inclination of tooth than to do twin brackets. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  33. 33.  Anti tip Lewis bracket :  Vertical slot Lewis Bracket :  Curved base Lewis bracket: www.indiandentalacademy.com
  34. 34. BEGG BRACKET  Introduced by percival Raymond Begg.  Dr. Begg and Fredish, were the first to treat patients with edge wise system of appliance.  After returning to Australia in 1926, practiced edge wise for 2 yrs, dissatisfied with poor post treatment profiles.  In 1928, he began to routinely remove teeth or reduce tooth substance by “Stripping” and recognized role of attrition in human dentition. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  35. 35.  In 1933, about 3 yrs after switching from rectangular to round wires, he began using stainless steel ribbon arch brackets with slots agingivally rather than occluslly. Hence the Begg bracket was a modified ribbon arch bracket.  In 1956 he introduced concept of differential force system www.indiandentalacademy.com
  36. 36. ANDREWS SYSTEM  Here, I will be talking about the fully programmed appliance as it represent a true pre adjusted edge wise appliance.  Before that there is a requirement to know some important terminologies.  Andrews plane  Clinical crown  Crown Angulation  Crown inclination  Facial axis of the clinical crown (FACC) www.indiandentalacademy.com
  37. 37.  Facial axis point  Auxiliary feature  Convenience feature  Embrassure line  Inclined base  Inclined slot  Slot point  Slot site www.indiandentalacademy.com
  38. 38. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  39. 39. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  40. 40. Edge-wise Appliance classification  Non-programmed.  Partly-programmed.  Fully-programmed www.indiandentalacademy.com
  41. 41. Fully programmed appliance  The concept that an edge wise appliance could be fully programmed evolved from a series of five studies. The first began in 1960.  The first two studies and 3rd and 4th led to establish the conceptual feasibility of a fully programmed appliance.  The fifth study included the study of occlusal characteristics of the post treatment dental casts of 1150. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  42. 42.  The appliance consists of 2 series of bracket system  STANDARD BRACKETS THAT DO NOT REQUIRE TRANSLATION.  TRANSLATION BRACKETS. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  43. 43. Design features of a standard bracket  Slot sitting features.  Convenience features  Auxiliary features. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  44. 44. SLOT SITTING FEATURES  Is explained in 3 planes  Mid Transverse plane  Mid sagittal plane  Mid Frontal plane www.indiandentalacademy.com

  47. 47. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  48. 48. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  49. 49. Convenience feature www.indiandentalacademy.com
  50. 50. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  51. 51. Auxiliary Features  Contribute to the biological aspect of treatment, even thought they are not involved in siting the slot. Examples are power arms, hooks, face-bow tubes, utility tubes and rotation wings . www.indiandentalacademy.com
  52. 52. FULLY PROGRAMMED TRANSLATION BRACKETS  When bodily movement of teeth are required into the extraction spaces.  additional slot features had to be incorporated into the standard bracket .  These were done by Andrews in 1972 . www.indiandentalacademy.com
  53. 53. Translation bracket categories  To stay within the specified 2 and 0.5 mm positional constraints, a different translation bracket is needed.  Depending upon the ranges 0.1 to 2 mm, 2.1 to 4 mm and more than 4 mm. The translation brackets that satisfy these requirements are called minimum, medium and maximum. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  54. 54. Terminology to explain these bracket  COUNTER BUCCOLINGUAL TIP  COUNTER MESIODISTAL TIP.  COUNTER ROTATION.  POWER ARM.  TRANSLATION BRACKET. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  55. 55. Translation problems  Defn Of Translation.  Force application.  Center of resistance of a tooth.  bracket located on a crowns face is in the “wrong” place in two ways. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  56. 56. Translation solutions  There are two fundamental methods of moving a tooth mesially of distally . www.indiandentalacademy.com
  57. 57. Levers  principles concerning levers.  The lever length should be optimum.  The edge wise slot can be considered to have three levers www.indiandentalacademy.com
  58. 58. Slot siting features Counter rotation and counter mesiodistal tip are two slot siting features common to all translation brackets. In addition maxillary molar translation brackets have counter buccolingual tip The criteria for incorporating an amount of counter rotation, counter mesiodistal tip, and counter buccolingual tip in distance, because the farther the tooth needs to be translated the greater the rebound potential. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  59. 59. Counter rotation www.indiandentalacademy.com
  60. 60. Counter mesiodistal tip : www.indiandentalacademy.com
  61. 61. Counter bucco lingual tip www.indiandentalacademy.com
  62. 62. ROTH BRACKET SYSTEM  In 1979, Roth introduced a bracket set up containing modifications of the tip, torque, rotations and in-out movements of the Andrew’s standard set up bracket.  The purpose of the Roth set up was to provide over corrected tooth position prior to appliance removal which would allow the teeth in most instances to settle what was found in non-normals studied by Andrews www.indiandentalacademy.com
  63. 63. Roth’s philosophy www.indiandentalacademy.com
  64. 64. LEVEL ANCHORAGE SYSTEM  This system was given by Terrel L. Root.  This system quantifys the anchorage requirements of the orthodontic problem and thus clarify the necessary treatment steps needed to reach the goal. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  65. 65. Appliance proper www.indiandentalacademy.com
  66. 66. Level anchorage preadjustments  regular anchorage major anchorage www.indiandentalacademy.com
  67. 67. VARI SIMPLEX DISCIPLINE  introduced by Dr. R.G. Wick Alexander.  “Vari” refer to the variety of bracket types used (Twin, lewis and lang).  “Simplex” refers to the KISS principle (Keep it simple, sir).  In this technique arch wire fabrication is simplified, with first - , second - , and third-order effects placed in the bracket instead of bending them into the arch wires. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  68. 68. CONCEPT  Brackets are all pretorquced,preangulated, and exhibit specified bracket base thickness to reflect in/out considerations.  The most important factors in determining bracket design in the vari-simplex discipline are the sizes and shapes of teeth especially mesiodistal width and curvature. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  69. 69. BRACKET TYPES Twin Lang Lewis www.indiandentalacademy.com
  70. 70. BRACKET PRESCRIPTION Bracket in-out . Bracket angulation . Bracket torque. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  71. 71. BIO – PROGRESSIVE SYSTEM  introduced by Robert M Ricketts in 1920.  Development of bio – progressive set-ups 1. The standard progressive set up. 2. Full torque bio-progressive set up. 3. Triple control bio progressive. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  72. 72. Prescription  Incisors.  Canines.  Advantages : Comparable case of ligating. Comparable case of uprighting. Flexibility of elastic attachments. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  73. 73. COMBINATION ANCHORAGE TECHNIQUE  designed by William J Thompson in the year 1981.  concept of this technique. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  74. 74.  Bracket dimensions.  022 x 0.035 gingival ribbon arch slot.  0.018 x 0.025 or0.022 x 0.028 straight wire edge wise slot.  Bracket placement.  placement is similar to straight wire appliances.  Bracket prescription. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  75. 75. FOUR STAGE LIGHT WIRE APPLIANCE  introduced by Dr William J. Thompson in 1981.  Avoids the disadvantages of both the begg and the straight wire appliance.  the treatment mechanism is divided into fourstages.  Appliance incorporates the special four stage brackets. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  76. 76.  The bracket differs from other combination attachments.  The base of the four stage bracket is beveled to reduce the possibility of friction or binding with the arch wire. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  77. 77. THE BIMETRIC SYSTEM  introduced by Schudy F.F and Schudy G.F in 1975.  uses bracket slot of two different sizes in the same mouth. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  78. 78. Rationale for these changes  In the anterior position by placing the wire in 0.016 inch dimension seat, we can have a resilient, gentle, effective torquing fore.  In the posterior position,work hardening the wire by giving a 900 twist makes us utilize the maximum strength of the wire. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  79. 79. DUAL ENVIRONMENT BRACKETS  Introduced by George F Schudy in 1990.  The brackets based on the computer modeling.  Bracket proper Outer slot Inner slot www.indiandentalacademy.com

  93. 93. In out specification  The in-out feature is 100% fully expressed.  The labio lingual movement.  Importance of upper second premolars bracket. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  94. 94. Importance of tip specification  Anterior tip  Premolar tip  Molar tip www.indiandentalacademy.com
  95. 95. Torque specification  in/out and tip features are efficiently expressed by the preadjusted appliance.  In contrast, torque is not efficiently expressed due to two mechanical reasons. - a full thickness wire prevents sliding. - area of torque application is small, and depends on the twist effect of a relatively small wire. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  96. 96. Incisor Torque www.indiandentalacademy.com
  97. 97.  Upper canine torque  Lower canine torque www.indiandentalacademy.com
  98. 98.  Upper bicuspid and molar torque  Lower premolar and molar torque : www.indiandentalacademy.com
  100. 100. TORQUE IN THE BASE V/S TORQUE IN THE FACE www.indiandentalacademy.com
  101. 101. CONCLUSION As we know that treatment principles are mainly based on science but art is also a part of it. Through the years, the advent of new system of brackets have been pounded into the field of orthodontics, which has guided and at the same time misguided the clinician in his planned mechano therapy. This can’t be attributed only to the in built properties of the material but also to the extent of basic knowledge a clinician owes regarding that particular system. As such there is no known universal bracket system to treat all types of malalgined teeth, yet there are varieties of system available in which the clinician should judge and make judicious use of it. Providing a “right treatment for a right patient using a right appliance at a right time”. www.indiandentalacademy.com
