1-2nd April 2022
– INTRODUCTION: why it is important to have a deep biomechanics knowledge, limits of standard protocol therapies and the need of custom mechanics design.
– THE 5 PILLARS: Treatment goal, Needed Force System, Anchorage Evaluation, Stage Definition, Appliance Design. How this sequence can lead to build a better appliance for your patients.
– THE OCCLUSOGRAM PROCEDURE: How to evaluate different treatment goals and scenarios, and how this will bring you to see the needed movement.
– THE DENTAL MOVEMENT ANALYSIS: How the movement can be related to a force system. Very Short introduction to mechanics fundamentals.
– THE ANCHORAGE MANAGEMENT: How we can evaluate our anchorage needs, how we can increase anchorage without the use of TAD’s. When is skeletal anchorage needed, and which is the best approach for it?
– CANTILEVER MECHANICS: Creative and predictable mechanics that can be used for any problem.
– MECHANICS FOR TRANSVERSAL ASYMMETRIES : Corrections of unilateral cross-bite, Scissor bite and Arch Collapse in the Canine Area
– MECHANICS FOR SAGITTAL ASYMMETRIES : Unilateral distal movement and Space Closure.
– MECHANICS FOR MIDLINE CORRECTION: Different mechanical solutions for different common clinical situations.
– MANDIBULAR REPOSITIONING: See how cases that need a surgical treatment apparently, can be treated with a conservative approach and with no compromise.

DR GIORGIO FIORELLI
Medical degree, dental degree and orthodontic postgraduate program at the University of Siena. Private practice limited to orthodontics since 1983. Currently in Arezzo, Florence & Lugano as well as in Richterswil (Zurich). Part time assistant professor at the orthodontic department of the University of Siena from 1993. Affiliated to the orthodontic department of University of Aarhus, Denmark since 1992. Affiliated to the orthodontic department of the University of Buffalo USA from 2011 to 2014. Main professional interests: orthodontic biomechanics, use of computer within the orthodontic practice (especially related to mechanics design and treatment planning), segmented arch technique and adult orthodontic treatment. He has published about 30 papers about the above mentioned fields.
