Putting it all together: Interpreting the results of animal and clinical studies in accelerating the rate of tooth movement with localized alveolar bone injury

Reducing treatment duration has taken a central interest among patients and orthodontists.  Increasing the rate of tooth movement through localized alveolar bone injury is one of the approaches that could enable achieving this goal.  The evidence tends to suggest that orthodontic tooth movement acceleration is temporary in nature and dependent on the degree of invasiveness of the surgical procedure. 

This lecture will:

  • Highlight the results of animal studies with different localized alveolar bone injuries
  • Discuss the results of clinical studies evaluating different types of alveolar surgical procedures
  • Discuss the results of 2 randomized clinical trials evaluating flapless cortical bone injury with a piezotome
