Lewis Lecture:
Mechanobiology in Orthodontics
 
Friday, October 27, 2017
9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Biomedical Research Tower (OSU Campus)
(6 CE credit hours)

Discover how linking mechanics and biology can improve predictions about matters of concern to orthodontics, such as the speed of orthodontic tooth movement and the development of temporomandibular disorders. 

Attendees of this lecture will be able to:

  • Recognize how linking mechanics and biology can improve predictions about the speed of orthodontic tooth movement
  • Define component factors that contribute to the speed of tooth movement in humans
  • Recognize how linking mechanics and biology may improve predictions about who will develop temporomandibular disorders
  • Define component factors that contribute to mechanobehavioral scores and how these are measured for personalized TMJ assessment
  • Distinguish differences between sub-groups of people with and without temporomandibular disorders
  • Discuss technologies for characterizing jaw mechanics and behaviors
