LECTURE OBJECTIVES

- Force
- Center of Resistance (Cres)
- Types of Tooth Movement

- Physical property e.g. distance, weight, temperature, force.
- Physical properties are, mathematically, scalars or vectors
- Scalars have a magnitude and no direction e.g. weight, temperature
- Vectors have a magnitude and a direction e.g. force

- Line of Action

- Sense

- Magnitude

- Point of Application

- Common point of application

- Different points of application

- Resolving force into components

- A load applied to an object that will tend to move it in the direction of the applied force
- Defined in units of Newtons
- Orthodontic purposes measured as grams or ounces

- Force
- Center of Resistance (Cres)
- Types of Tooth Movement

- Free body: center of mass/gravity = point of balance
- Restrained body (tooth): center of resistance (Cres)
- By definition, a force acting through Cres moves tooth with no change in orientation = translation

- A point at which resistance to movement can be concentrated for mathematical analysis (= Cres)
- The center of resistance for a tooth is 1/2 - 1/3 (40%) root length apical to alveolar crest
- Cres varies with root length and alveolar crest height

- Cres varies with root length and alveolar crest height

- Force
- Center of Resistance (Cres)
- Types of Tooth Movement

- Translation

- Rotation

- Combination/Tipping

- Moment
- Couple
- Center of Rotation (Crot)

- A force applied in line with the center of resistance;the tooth is translated with no rotation relative to the force
- Orthodontically, the point of attachment is irrelevant; the line of action of force determines the effect on the tooth

- A force that doesn’t pass through Cres causes translation + rotation = tipping
i.e., tends to tip the tooth, movement with a rotational component.

- Force
- Center of Resistance (Cres)
- Types of Tooth MovementMomentCoupleCenter of Rotation (Crot)

- If the line of action of a force is at a distance from the Cres the force will produce some rotation. The potential for rotation is measured as a moment

- Magnitude = perpendicular distance from Cres to the line of action X magnitude of force (unit = gram mm)
- Direction: Clockwise or Counter-cw

- No single force can cause pure rotation
- Only a couple can
- Two forces: equal magnitude; parallel and non-collinear; opposite sense
- Couple is a ‘free vector’

- Two forces; equal magnitude; parallel and non-collinear; opposite sense

- Translational effects cancel each other out

- The moments are in the same direction and are additive

+

= 1000 gm mm

- The Sum of the Moments =

50 g X 10 mm

50 g X 10 mm

- The moment of a couple is equal to the magnitude of one of the forces X distance between them (50g X 20 mm)

- Only a couple can cause pure rotation

- Force
- Center of Resistance (Cres)
- Types of Tooth MovementMomentCoupleCenter of Rotation (Crot)

- The point around which rotation occurs when an object is being moved
- This point will vary depending on the force/moment/couple being applied
Bodily movement or translation

Tipping movement

- Connect the before and after positions of 2 points
- The intersection of the perpendicular bisectors of these lines is Crot

1. Definition of terms2. Mechanics of tooth movement3.Anchorage in orthodontic appliances

LECTURE OBJECTIVES

- Resistance to unwanted tooth movement
- Resistance to reaction forces
- Maximizing tooth movement and minimizing unwanted “reactionary effects”

- Reciprocal space closure
- Minimum anchorage requirements

- Differential space closure
- Intermediate anchorage requirements

1237

706

- Differential space closure
- Intermediate anchorage requirements

- Dissipate reactionary forces over as many teeth (or as widely) as possible
- Reinforced anchorage
- Maximum anchorage

- Frictional resistance to sliding archwires against brackets

- Surface of wires/bracket -
- 1) Stainless steel slides well on stainless steel;
- 2) Nickel titanium alloy wires have greater frictional resistance
- 3) Ceramic brackets also exhibit greater frictional resistance

LECTURE OBJECTIVES

1. Review Laboratory Procedures:Arch Length AnalysisMolar Uprighting: Preparing typodont

LECTURE OBJECTIVES

Arch Length Analysis = Space Analysis

- Permanent Dentition
- Mixed Dentition

+Arch length available

- M/D width of 12 teeth: first molar to first molar

__________________________

= Arch length deficiency or excess

The arch circumference:

measured at the proximal contacts of posterior teeth and the incisal edges of anterior teeth i.e., the widest part of the tooth.

Measuring Arch Length

- The same procedure in themixed dentition but
- Need to estimate the size of unerupted permanent teeth (premolars and canines)
- Moyers proportionality tables, Tanaka and Johnston

+Arch length available

- M/D width of teeth mesial to first molars

_______________________

= Arch length deficiency or excess

Measuring Arch Length

To estimate the width of unerupted canines and premolars in a quadrant:

1. Get sum of the mesial-distal width of the 4 mandibular permanent incisors.

2. Locate value in Table and look up predicted width of maxillary and mandibular teeth.

To estimate the width of unerupted canines and premolars in a quadrant:

1. Get sum of the mesial-distal width of the 4 mandibular permanent incisors.

2. Divide by 2 and add

11.0 for max. canine + premolars

10.5 for mand. canine + premolars.

Tanaka &Johnston, JADA 88:798, 1974

To estimate the width of unerupted canines and premolars in a quadrant:

23mm for maxillary quadrant

22mm for mandibular quadrant
