Sandli Singh

Hello, I, Sandli Singh, student of final year participated and secured 1st position in an Intercollegiate Eposter competition that was held at M. A Rangoonwala Dental Sciences and Research Centre, Pune on 29th February 2020, the theme for the competition was 'Latest trends in Dental therapy and treatment', it was an open category competition where UGs, interns and PGs were competing on the same platform.

Dr. Nikhil Jain

This is to convey that I presented a table clinic demonstration titled as the 'Factors affecting the Anterior component of force' at the Indian Orthodontic Society All India Post Graduate Convention held in Hyderabad from 21-23th Feb, 2020. I won the second position in the Competitive Clinical category Table Clinics for the same

Construction:The model was a simulator of human muscles of mastication which were replicated using elastic straps hooked on to orthodontic mini-implants placed along the origin and insertion points for all muscles. Typodont teeth were mounted in the prepared alveolar sockets of upper as well as lower jaw in ideal occlusion.

Parameters evaluated:

  • Occlusal force
  • Tightness of dental contact point (interproximal tightness between 2nd premolar and 1st molar of lower arch)

Both parameters were evaluated on flex and force sensors. The output was measured as voltage on two separate multimeters simultaneously.

Variable Factors: bite force was varied by

  • adding closed coil springs over the placed mini implants
  • increasing the gape (degree of separation ) of the jaws by addition of 3 mm unilateral posterior bite block increments.

It was seen that with addition of springs as well incremental increase in gape, occlusal force increased progressively and so did the interproximal contact tightness. This showed that proximal tightness was directly dependant on the bite force as well as the degree of separation of the two jaws.

Clinical relevance of this presentation highlights the etiology of lower anterior crowding due to anterior component of force and relapse of cases where extrusion of teeth is attempted. An understanding of the above concepts can help us determine the prognosis of the Orthodontic mechano-therapy at an early stage.
