Biomechanics and Esthetic Based Orthodontic Treatment Strategies

 Acceleration of Orthodontic Tooth Movement: Possibilities and Limitations
This is currently a hot subject in orthodontics. Numerous methods and technologies have been proposed and investigated. At our University of Connecticut we have several ongoing clinical and animal experiments (corticision, vibration, piezocision and LIPUS) in progress. This presentation will discuss results of some of these studies and current literature.


Biomechanics based management of smile zone discrepancies
Over the last century orthodontic profession has placed significant emphasis on correction of sagittal discrepancies. Smile zone discrepancies of smile height, smile arc, midlines, and occlusal planes have received attention only in recent years. Unfortunately, mechanics employed to correct smile zone problems are often too simplistic and do not result in intended corrections. Late Dr. Burstone, my colleague of 42 years at the University of Connecticut, provided us biomechanics tools which can help us achieve predictable movements of teeth. This presentation will discuss management of various smile zone problems by application of targeted mechanics.


Contemporary Management of Open bite Patients
Open bite correction is one of the most difficult malocclusion to correct from the point of view of achieving esthetic goals and long term stability. This presentation will describe when to extrude anterior teeth and when to intrude posterior teeth. Various methods to intrude posterior teeth will be discussed. For extrusion of anterior teeth biomechanics based smart wire will be described. Various procedures will be shown step by step on patients treated with and without TADs.

He has been recognized with various awards from numerous international orthodontic organizations.

Dr. Nanda is a co-editor of a book Retention and Stability.  His most recent books are Biomechanics in Clinical Orthodontics, Biomechanic and Esthetic Strategies In Clinical Orthodontics, Temporary Anchorage Devices in Orthodontics and Current Therapy in Orthodontics “Esthetics and Biomechanics in Orthodontics. His new book is titled “ Atlas of Complex Orthodontics”.



  • Registration cards for each individual program will be mailed to all member doctors prior to the program.
  • C.E. validation sign-in will take place in the morning for all members and guests (including staff) outside the lecture room beginning at 8:30 A.M. This sign-in must be completed prior to the start of the meeting for C.E. credits to be issued.
  • There is no advance payment for the CSO programs. Those who register will be billed AFTER the program and the tuition will be based on our cost. The Society has designed this payment schedule to benefit it’s members by distributing the cost of the meetings amongst the number of registrants. The CSO is solely supported by members’ dues and does not profit from the meetings.
  • Please submit all registrations and cancellations no later than two weeks prior to the meeting.

Meeting Agenda

  • The programs will begin promptly at 9:00 A.M.
  • A brief CSO business meeting will take place at each meeting.
  • Tuition includes a continental breakfast and luncheon.
  • All programs will conclude by 4:30 P.M.

Continuing Education

  • Six hours of Continuing Education will be granted for each course.
  • Certificates of participation and credit hours will be issued upon completion of each course at the adjournment of the lecture.
  • Partial C.E. credit hours will be issued if you wish to leave prior to the conclusion of the course.
  • It is the responsibility of the individual doctor or guest (including staff members) to obtain his/her C.E. Certificate at each lecture before departure. NO C.E. credits/certificates will be issued after the course date.
