  • Event: NEBEOP Web Academy webinar-2
  • Topic:How is the stress applied on tooth crown transformed into strain of the periodontal tissues?
  • Erasmus course: B7 Orthodontic Materials
  • Speaker: Prof. Theodore Eliades
  • Dates: 6 April 2021, 19:00 till 20:15 hr (CET)
  • Mode: Zoom webinar. Registration through your program director
  • Abstract
  • The lecture analyzes the strain distribution in materials and tissues [enamel, periodontal ligament (PDL)], accompanying the engagement of a wire into a bracket slot or insertion of an aligner in the dental arch. The factors modulating the orthodontic force-induced strain and the role of modulus of a wide array of materials and tissues in altering the resultant strain will be discussed.
  • Emphasis is given to the structure-property relationship of bracket and wire alloys, stiffness and creep of aligners, force relaxation of elastomers, as well as manufacturing (metal injection molding, welding) and design (self-ligating) bracket variables, whereas several related misconceptions are clarified. In as much, the characteristic biphasic nature of PDL is analyzed to elucidate the notable PDL strain variation for nominally identical stress in cases of collagen defects and resultant connective tissue disorders, i.e., rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus, osteogenesis imperfecta, scleroderma, Marfan syndrome, among others.

He graduated from the School of Dentistry, University of Athens, Greece, and completed his Orthodontic residency at the Ohio State University. He earned a Master of Science degree from the Ohio State, a doctorate in medical sciences from the University of Athens, a PhD and a DSc from the University of Manchester.
  • He has published 270 papers and 50 book chapters, and edited 12 textbooks published by major houses, some of which translated into 5 languages. He is an elected Fellow of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, the Royal Society of Chemistry, and the Institute of Physics (UK).
  • Professor Eliades has been Visiting Professor at King’s College London, and University of Adelaide and served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Dental Biomechanics, Associate Editor of the European Journal of Orthodontics, the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, and the Progress in Orthodontics.
  • His expertise includes materials science, clinical aspects of materials application and treatment efficiency, biological properties of materials, dental hard tissues and bonding, and mechanics of materials and tissues.
  • Event: NEBEOP Web Academy webinar-3
  • Topic:Friction in Orthodontics: The bracket-wire combinations revisited
  • Erasmus course: B8 Biomechanics
  • Speaker: Prof. Peter Bantleon
  • Dates: 4 May 2021, 19:00 till 20:15 hr (CET)
  • Mode: Zoom webinar. Registration through your program director
    • Abstract
    • Every orthodontic diagnosis is followed by a treatment plan that should also implement biomechanical knowledge. Charles Burstone wrote in his 2000 article "Orthodontics as a science" that a large part of clinical orthodontics is performed without considering forces or force systems. This lecture will analyze bracket-wire relationships and describe their effects on tooth movement.
    • The topics to discuss are:
    • - Friction and resistance to sliding
    • - Introduction to one couple force system
    • - Friction behavior between bracket and archwire
    • - Measurements of bracket-archwire combination
    • - Dynamic measurements of bracket-archwire combination

    • Short Speaker Bio
    • Professor Petert Bantleon is professor emeritus at the University of Vienna. He received his D.M.D. at the University of Graz in 1981, following which he became an assistant at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and subsequently Assistant Professor at the Department of Orthodontics. In 1989 he qualified as a University Lecturer for Dentistry with special regard to orthodontics. Since 1992 he has been a full professor and Head of the Department of Orthodontics at the University Clinic of Dentistry in Vienna. His main fields of research are biomechanics, bonding techniques and materials.
    • From 1996 to 2015 he was chairman of the Austrian Society of Orthodontists and in 2006 President of the 82nd Congress of the European Orthodontic Society (EOS) . Since 2005 he has been President of the annual International Vienna Orthodontic Symposium.
    • He has authored and co-authored more than 120 publications and several textbook chapters. He is a reviewer and member of the editorial board of several international journals. He is a member of the EOS, the American Association of Orthodontists, the World Federation of Orthodontists and the Angle Society of Europe.
