AS17B28C - Faster Tooth Movement: Is It Possible and If So, How?


Apr 23, 2017 4:00pm ‐ Apr 23, 2017 4:30pm


Description

Orthodontists and their patients desire orthodontic treatment efficiency. One way to enhance treatment efficiency is to speed up tooth movement. Many adjunctive treatment options are in development and/or currently available which potentially enhance tooth movement. Do these treatments work? Do they work in all patients? Are there negative side effects? Do physiologic limits exist? These questions and more will be addressed in this lecture.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe how and if biologic mediators (drugs) can be used to increase the rate of tooth movement.
  • Describe how and if vibration appliances can be used to increase the rate of tooth movement.
  • Describe how and if vibration appliances can be used to enhance orthodontic retention.
