PREDICTABILITY OF TOOTH MOVEMENT WITH INDIVIDUAL BIOMECHANICAL PLANNING FOR SEVERE PERIO CASES.
Patients with severe periodontal attachment loss represent a challenging group among the orthodontic patients. Realignment of flared incisors after periodontal stabilization is a major functional and aesthetic goal, achieving it is usually aggravated by the apical migration of the center of resistance and the often co-occuring lack of sufficient anchorage. While the aforementioned factors represent difficulties, the treatment of this patient group is very rewarding too since these patients are after a lengthy periodontal therapy and highly motivated and cooperating thus making them ideal subjects for segmented archwire technique and individual biomechanical planning.
In my lecture, I would like to present some of my cases treated in collaboration with the Department of Periodontology of Semmelweis University, and with their help, I would like to demonstrate that with careful biomechanical planning, this group of patients can also be treated safely and successfully, and their quality of life can thus significantly improve.
Zsuzsanna Stefánia Radó CV
is a clinical orthodontist and PhD student at Semmelweis University Department of Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics also working as a private practitioner in Budapest, Hungary. Her main focus is the clinical application of rational biomechanics with segmented arch technique and finding the right balance between individualized and prefabricated orthodontic treatment modalities. She is a tutor at Semmelweis University supervising the orthodontic training of young Hungarian and German colleagues and is also taking part in teaching in the Biomede European Biomechanics courses.
