Force System with Vertical V-Bends: A 3D In Vitro Assessment of Elastic and Rigid Rectangular Archwires Madhur Upadhyay1, Raja Shah2, Sachin Agarwal3, Meenakshi Vishwanath4, Po-Jung Chen5, Takafumi Asaki6, Donald Peterson7 1Division of Orthodontics, University of Connecticut Health, 2Private Practice, 3Department of Orthodontics, University of Melbourne, 4Department of Orthodontics, University of Nebraska Medical Center, 5Department of Craniofacial Sciences, University of Connecticut Health, 6Biomedical Engineering, University of Hartford, 7Department of Mechanical Engineering, College of Engineering and Engineering Technology, Northern Illinois University The method presented here is designed to construct and validate an in vitro 3D model capable of measuring the force system generated by different archwires with V-bends placed between two brackets. Additional objectives are to compare this force system with different types of archwires and to previous models.

Autotransplantation: A Biological Treatment Alternative for a Patient After Traumatic Dental Injury Korean Journal of Orthodontics. Mar, 2018 | Pubmed ID: 29564222 Traumatic dental injury is considered a public dental health problem because of a high childhood incidence, high treatment costs, and prolonged treatment time. Although management guidelines for traumatized teeth have been outlined, tooth loss following trauma is occasionally unavoidable. Here, we describe the successful interdisciplinary management of a traumatized central incisor in an 11-year old boy that was extracted because of a poor prognosis and restored by the autotransplantation of an immature donor tooth into the site. The patient underwent orthodontic treatment in order to close the donor site space and bring the autotransplanted tooth to an ideal position. Postorthodontic treatment radiographs and photographs revealed an esthetic and functional natural tooth replacing the lost tooth. The findings from this case suggest that autotransplantation offers unique advantages as a treatment modality for the restoration of missing teeth, particularly in growing children.
