"Speed Limits in Orthodontics, fact versus Fiction"
There is an increased demand for fast orthodontic treatment, which has been facilitated by technology advancements of
orthodontic appliances, but also by the heavy marketing of so-called ‘fast and easy’ appliances. Claims about fast
orthodontics are broadly spread to dentists and to the general public thorough Internet and social networks, with very
little control of their accuracy. As a result, patient expectations about short treatment time are continuously increasing.
But has new technology actually changed treatment time and the efficiency of orthodontic appliance? This lecture will
attempt to answer FAQs regarding treatment time in orthodontics, and to provide the audience with an update of current
scientific evidence regarding factors that may affect treatment time in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, including
brackets design and methods for acceleration of tooth movement, such as vibration and surgically assisted orthodontics.
The role of patient-specific factors for clinical decision-making will also be discussed. Finally, a number of case
examples will be illustrated. At the end of this presentation, the participants should be able to distinguish fact from
fiction about treatment time in orthodontics.
