  3. 3. Conventional Begg o Attritional occlusion in Australian Aborigines o Concept of differential forces
  4. 4. Space closure in Begg Stage II- Objectives : 1. To maintain all corrections achieved during stage I 2. To close all extraction spaces  Controlled tipping of incisors  Preventing excess tipping
  5. 5. Space closure in Begg Stage II- Archwires o - 0.018” P/P+, 0.020” P o Anchor bands reduced- maintain correction o Maintain rotation, deepbite correction, archform o Resist rotational tendency of molars- class I elastics o No sliding of brackets- no slow down
  6. 6. Controlled tipping of incisors o MAA- lingual root torque- root control from the beginning. 0.009” o Uprighting spring- canine o Incisors upright or slightly retroclined
  7. 7.
  8. 8. Elastics o Differential configuration o U/L class I
  9. 9. Elastics o Class II with lower class I- molar relation not corrected
  10. 10. Elastics o Z configuration (class II part time)
  11. 11. Elastics o Class II only- U/L anteriors do not retract at the same rate
  12. 12. Elastics o Lower class I only (anteriors in crossbite)
  13. 13. Braking mechanics o For protracting the posteriors 1. Braking pins 2. Angulated T pins 3. Combination wires 4. Torquing auxiliaries
  14. 14. Braking mechanics o Braking pins- passive uprighting springs, 0.018” almost fill the bracket channel
  15. 15. Braking mechanics o Angulated T pins- maintain tipping
  16. 16. Combination wiresSS/Alpha- titanium Anterior segment0.022” x 0.018”- ribbon mode Posterior segment- 0.018” round Greater torque in anterior segment = more bite deepening effect
  17. 17. Braking mechanics o Torquing auxiliaries- 2 spur or 4 spur - MAA 0.010”/0.011”(0.020” base wire)
  18. 18. o Duration of stage II–  2 stages together approximately 1 year-not more than 1 year 3 months
  19. 19. KB Technique o Kamedanized Begg- Akira Kameda o Modifications to Conventional Begg technique. o Stage II- torquing and space closure o Rectangular tube with round or ribbon archwirephilosophy of low friction
  20. 20. o Pre-Torqued brackets o Combination archwire
  21. 21. KB Technique o Round wire in round tube - Anchor molars tend to roll in. - Correcting lingually inclined anchor molarsdifficult. - Directing forces- difficult - Bite opening efficiency decreased
  22. 22. KB Technique o Rectangular tube with round or ribbon archwiro Pre-Torqued brackets o Combination archwires Alpha titanium 100% humidity= titanium hydrite- harden in the mouth

  28. 28. J- Hook Headgear- John Hickam o Straight pull type o High pull type- bodily movement, aid in bite opening o Variable pull J-hook assembly
  29. 29. J- Hook Headgear- John Hickam
  30. 30. o Disadvantages o Force application is intermittent o Patient co-operation o Trauma of the soft tissues from the J-hook
  31. 31. Sliding mechanics Advantages o Minimal wire bending o Less time consuming o Enhances patient comfort o No running out of space for activation
  32. 32. Sliding mechanics Disadvantage o Lack of efficiency compared to frictionless mechanics o Uncontrolled tipping o Deepening of overbite o Loss of anchorage
  33. 33. Space closure in Tip Edge Tip-Edge vs Original Edgewise bracket o Unique slot- permits free crown tipping o Allows differential tooth movement o Light forces, minimal archwire deflectiondiminished anchorage demand o Increased horizontal & vertical control
  34. 34. o Tip-Edge vs Ribbon Arch Bracket

  38. 38. Dr. SAFEENA
  39. 39. Frictionless mechanics o Teeth moved without the bracket sliding along the arch wire o Retraction accomplished with loops or springs o Offers more controlled tooth movement than sliding mechanics
  40. 40. o Continuous arch- nonbroken archwire formed around the dental arch, connects one bracket or tube with the bracket on an adjacent tooth o Segmented arch- sections of continuous arch which are joined or connected together to form a semblance of a continuous archwire o Sectional arch- contains portions of a continuous archwire that are not joined in any way to form an integral unit
  41. 41. Rationale of Segmented arch o Consolidation of teeth into units- 2 buccal segments and one anterior segment. o Buccal segments- TPA, lingual arch o Each segment- multirooted tooth o Intrasegmental mechanics- alignment by segmental archwires o Segments consolidated into complete arch o Allows use of wires of varying cross-section of archwire o Side effects of forces easily controlledprefabricated/precalibrated o
  42. 42. Loops used in frictionless mechanicsRetraction Loops (springs) Ideal loop design o Deliver relatively low, nearly constant forces o Accommodate large activation o Comfortable to the patient o Easy to fabricate
  43. 43. o Burstone and Koenig Ideal characteristics for effective physiologic tooth movement 1. High M/F ratio required for translatory movement 2. Low LDR, to maintain optimum force levels over a long range
  44. 44. 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
  45. 45. Vertical loop o Dr. Robert Strang- originator, for retraction mechanics o 2types 1. When used for opening spaces- legs should be separated 3/32”, ¼” in height 2. When used for closing spaces, legs are close together and parallel
  46. 46.
  47. 47. Standard vertical loop o Simplest loop o Fabricated as independent devices/incorporated into continuous archwire o Used for alignment and space closure
  48. 48. Vertical Loop o Open Vertical Loop o Closed vertical loop
  49. 49. Modifications of Vertical loop o Bull loop- Dr. Harry Bull (1951) o Loop legs tightly abutting each other. o Omega loop- As mentioned by Dr. Morris Stoner resemblance with Greek letter ‘omega’ o Believed to distribute stresses more evenly through the curvature, instead of concentrating them at apex
  50. 50. Height restricted by anatomy of oral cavity
  51. 51.
  52. 52. o Forces optimum for canine retraction 1-2 N (1N=102gms) o Force levels at activation of vertical loop 4.4N o Force-deflection relationship linear o At 0.5mm activation- force levels half of those at 1mm o Small movement of teeth- large in force levels o M/F below ideal for controlled tipping and translation o Change in design geometry
  53. 53. o Closed loop- greater range of activation than open loop= additional wire and o Bauschinger effect- range of activation is always greater in the direction of the last bend
  54. 54. Standard vertical loop Disadvantages o Very high forceso Force & M/F extremely sensitive to small changes in activation o Discomfort to patient o Loss of anchorage & root control o Dumping of teeth o Small activations-Rapid force decay, intermittent force delivery
  55. 55. Use of vertical loops in retraction systems- Faulkner et al. AJO 1991 Effect of Helix o Single apical helix- force= M/F o Lateral helices- moment o Combination- M/F slightly above 2 & activation
  56. 56. o Apical helix
  57. 57. o Preactivation
  58. 58. Preactivation o Same force/deflection o Shifted moment/deflection o M/F greater at low activation o Spring very sensitive to small errors in manufacture and installation- difficult to use in practice.
  59. 59. o Preactivation and Helices
  60. 60. o Larger activation without permanent deformation o Preactivation allows application of larger moments o Resultant moment still not large enough to produce translation
  61. 61. o Increasing size of apical and lateral helices
  62. 62. Clinical Implications
  63. 63. Clinical Implications
  64. 64. L-loop o Boot loop- horizontal extension added o Force system becomes asymmetric o Direction in which ‘L’ is placed- smaller moment or force alone o Generates greatest moment differential between 2 teeth o Length of horizontal = differential force
  65. 65. T- loop o Addition of wire apically at the loop= M/F, LDR o Segmented T-loop- 0.017 x 0.025 TMA
  66. 66. T- loop D=L–A 2 D – length of anterior & posterior arm L – Inter bracket distance A - Activation
  67. 67. o A – Passive o B – Neutral position o C – full insertion
  68. 68. T- loop o Passive
  69. 69.
  70. 70. o Group A- loop closer to canine. Gable bend added nearer the molar, larger β moment, increases posterior anchorage o Group B- Loop midway between posterior and anterior segment o Group C- loop closer to posterior segment
  71. 71. T-loop position and anchorage control AJO 1997–Kuhlberg and Burstone o Effect of off-center positioning on force systems produced by segmented 0.017 x 0.025 TMA T-loop o Spring tested in 7 positions, centered, 1,2 &3mm towards anterior attachment and 1,2 & 3mm towards posterior attachment o Measured over 6mm of spring activation & 23mm IBD o Spring tester apparatus- University of Connecticut o Alpha and beta moments, horizontal and vertical forces measured
  72. 72. Conclusion 1. Centered T-loop, equal and opposite momentsnegligible vertical forces
  73. 73. 2. Off-center positioning- differential moments. More posterior= β moment More anterior= α moment
  74. 74. Standard T-loop can be used for differential anchorage requirement by altering activation and m-d position of spring
  75. 75. o Results consistent with the effect of V-bend activation in archwires for obtaining differential force. o Even 1mm of eccentricity produced marked difference in α & β moments o Spring positioning can be readily used as an effective means of obtaining differential moments o With vertical force, positioning a loop off-center for convenience may produce undesirable results
  76. 76. o For off-centered position magnitude of α,β & horizontal forces was dependent on both activation and position o Horizontal force increased with increase in eccentric position by aprox. 6 to 8gm/mm o Moments increased for the side closer to the T-loop and decreased for the further side. o Vertical forces increased with greater off-centering
  77. 77. o Design features to optimize force system 1. Material used-TMA-excellent spring back, good formability 2. Additional wire apically to activation & M/F 3. Loop centricity 4. Large IBD- allows for sufficient activation
  78. 78. Clinical Implications
