Accelerated Tooth Movement and Temporary Skeletal Anchorage Devices (TSADs)


Accelerated Tooth Movement (ATM) has been one of the vital treatment considerations in orthodontics. Currently, accelerated tooth movement is not limited in orthodontics only, but it extends into other parts of dentistry, such as periodontics, oral surgery and prosthodontics. More and more, the dental treatments are becoming interdisciplinary approach to achieve the best treatment outcomes and long-term prognosis in patients. There are increasing interests in defining the biologic changes to enhance the tooth movement and numerous in vitro and in vivo experimental studies contribute in understanding the modulators to enhance faster tooth movement to apply in mechanics. In accelerating the tooth movement, Temporary Skeletal Anchorage Devices (TSADs) has become one of the clinical modality that gained so much recognition. TSADs can aid in target tooth movement control by providing skeletal anchorage without depending on adjacent teeth. In clinical practice, the combination of ATM and TSADs together can further advance treatment efficiency and efficacy of patients in achieving treatment goals.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that improve treatment of patients using either accelerated tooth movement techniques or TSADs, and also the combination of two. We are particularly interested in articles describing the biological changes in cell level experiments with tooth movements, new modalities for clinical treatment to enhance tooth movement including surgical and non-surgical approaches, and biomechanics using TSADs for target tooth movements. Potential topics include, but not limited to:

  • Development and testing of novel and effective Accelerated Tooth Movement techniques
  • Latest surgical and non-surgical treatment effects on ATM
  • Development and testing of therapeutic strategies in application of Temporary Skeletal Anchorage Devices (TSADs)
  • Identification of molecular changes that influence in enhancing tooth movement
  • Recent advances in Temporary Skeletal Anchorage Devices (TSADs)
  • Innovative clinical techniques involving ATM, TSADs, and the combination of two
  • 3 Dimensional imaging study for anatomic considerations of ATM
  • 3 Dimensional imaging study of placement, risk factors, and mechanics of force application of TSADs
  • Contributing factors or precautions for successful placement and maintenance of TSADs
