  • Abstract
  • Relapse after orthodontic treatment is a recognized and complex problem that involves a number of factors. Malocclusion types, treatment modalities and the final occlusion have been widely investigated as possible influencing factors without giving a clear answer to the problem. Retention seems to be crucial, but it does not prevent from crowding and rotation of teeth in the long-term, changes that are also observed in untreated individuals. This warrants a re-evaluation of the term relapse.

  • This presentation is about the process of relapse occurring after removal of orthodontic force and the underlying tissue response. Increased knowledge of the biological determinants of repositioned teeth may provide a better understanding of the relapse processes and challenge the expectations of the orthodontists for a long-term stability of the orthodontic treatment.

  • Short Speaker Bio
  • Professor Vaska Vandevska-Radunovic received her DMD and MSc in orthodontics at the University Kiril i Metodij in Skopje. She continued her orthodontic training at the University of Bergen, Norway, where she obtained her PhD. She is currently Professor and Chairman at the Department of Orthodontics, University of Oslo and is involved in the education and research activity of doctoral, post-graduate and graduate students.

  • She is President Elect of the European Orthodontic Society for the 2023 EOS congress and a NEBEOP Board member.

  • Her main areas of research interest are tissue reactions during orthodontic tooth movement and relapse, long-term outcome of orthodontic treatment and periodontal aspects in orthodontic patients.





  • Event: NEBEOP Web Academy webinar-5
  • Topic: Genetics and root resorption in orthodontics
  • Erasmus course: C7 Iatrogenic aspects of orthodontic treatment
  • Speaker: Prof. Alejandro Iglesias-Linares
  • Dates: 7 September 2021, 19:00 till 20:15 hr (CET)
  • Mode: Zoom webinar. Registration through your program director
  • Abstract
  • External apical root resorption (EARR) is one of the most frequent secondary consequences derived from orthodontic tooth movement. To date, the full etiology of this iatrogenic effect still remains to be elucidated, although some specific clinical-related factors along with some diagnostic characteristics have shown a moderate degree of correlation.

  • In recent years, several attempts have been made to provide insights into the genetic variations present at the population that may be coding for biological scenarios that predispose to iatrogenic root resorption during orthodontic treatment. A number of in vitro and in vivo molecular, genomic and proteomic studies have provided new insights into root resorption in the field of orthodontics. This presentation is intended to sum up the most up to date scientific knowledge regarding orthodontic root resorption.

  • Short Speaker Bio
  • Professor Alejandro Iglesias-Linares qualified as specialist in Orthodontics from University of Seville, Spain where he also obtained the PhD, with an extraordinary award. Afterwards, he obtained a MSc degree in Molecular Biology and stem cells (honors) from the University of Navarra. Currently, he is Associate Dean for Research, Postgraduate and Doctoral Programs at the School of Dentistry of the Complutense University of Madrid and full professor at the Section of Orthodontics where he is involved in teaching of pre- and post-graduate students. .
  • Dr. Iglesias-Linares is an active member of the Angle Society of Orthodontics--North Atlantic (USA) and his office is limited to Orthodontics in Spain. His research interests are focused on translational research from bench side to clinical practice in the field of dento-alveolar-bone-complex, tooth movement, root resorption and genomics.
