Seq#34 - Uses of Bone Anchorage in Orthodontics

A number of clinical studies and systematic reviews have been published in the last years concerning the use of skeletal anchorage in orthodontics. This workshop intends to review the results of the recent research particularly focusing on the following topics: success rates of temporary anchorage devices in orthodontics, main reasons for failure and implant-/ patient-/ or technique-related factors, anatomic considerations for implant placement, orthopedic and dental effects, orthodontic biomechanics when using bone anchorage, bone borne vs tooth borne molar distalization, bone and tissue reactions around skeletal anchorage and bone borne CAD/CAM appliances. The session has been organized with experts in the field aiming to improve the knowledge of the attendants on the previously described points by analyzing the currently available scientific evidence. By the end of the workshop, the attendants should be able to select the location and type of anchorage depending on the treatment goals, know the orthopedic and orthodontic possibilities of bone anchorage, be familiar with the recent evidence surrounding it and be aware of the failure rates and possible side effects of bone anchorage, such as periodontal damage or root resorption.

Learning Objectives:

  • To improve the knowledge of the attendants, discarding outdated or not evidence-based concepts.
  • To offer updated clinical guidelines for the use of bone anchorage in orthodontics.
