With the intention of improving the rate, quality, and stability of orthodontic tooth movement, those in the field are now moving toward accomplishing this 'acceleration' with minimally or non-invasive methods. New procedures have been widely tested in humans, animal models, and in vitro. While interest is growing both in the industry and at the clinical level, the understanding of the biology is limited. Considering that a simple increase in force will result in tooth morbidity and arrest of the tooth migration, a multi-disciplinary approach is critical for success. This publication brings together multi-disciplinary expertise on a wide variety of processes related to and involved in orthodontic tooth movement. The premise is that, by better understanding the biological structures and the mechanism through which they respond to biomechanical forces, one can get a better assessment of the 'acceleration'. This work presents research aimed at an improved understanding of conventional and accelerated orthodontic tooth movement from a biological perspective and will be of great value to clinicians, researchers, academics, and students.

:Written by a broad spectrum of dental, medical and basic science researchers from around the world, this book presents state-of-the-art knowledge concerning the biology of connective tissues and their response to exogenous mechanical stimulation at the cell biology level. The text goes well beyond the traditional morphologic descriptions of tooth movement, covering the cell biology of the connective tissues involved, the various in vitro and in vivo research models, possible pharmacological means of influencing tissue responses, and biophysical considerations. Many cellular events that occur during tooth movement are discussed, as well as the exciting challenges, unanswered questions and possibilities in the future. This publication is extremely relevant to the work of dental specialists in orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, and periodontics plus orthopeadists and basic scientists working in connective tissue research.

The author introduces the reader to essentials of Invisalign treatment, from the basic biomechanics of thermoformed plastic aligners to the the ClinCheck 3D simulation treatment planning software, which allows the clinician to program in advance the velocity and direction of tooth movements; amount and frequency of force; anchorage; and available space necessary for the planned movements. Clinical results of various treatment types are shown using Invisalign system alone and in conjunction with other orthodontic treatments. This book is ideal for any orthodontist who wants to use the Invisalign system to achieve an optimal treatment outcome.
