Implant Interactions in Orthodontics
Whereas the advent of successful and predictable implant dentistry has had a pronounced impact on the practice of restorative dentistry, the same might not be said for the effect implants have had upon the specialty of Orthodontics. However, this presenter feels strongly that a new era of Orthodontic involvement with implants is upon us, and will illustrate the fascinating ability of implants to facilitate tooth movement.
The development of implants as useful entities to an Orthodontist, both in the techniques of “Direct” and “Indirect Anchorage” will be presented and delineated. Cases in which implants are used to facilitate treatment by greater expediency, ease of manipulation, streamlined mechanotherapy, elimination of patient compliance and expanding treatment possibilities will all be illustrated.
