The seminar of the legendary professor from the University of Connecticut - Ravindra Nanda - is based on 3 global issues of modern orthodontics:
- the use of temporary anchorage devices in difficult cases
- concepts of biomechanics in orthodontics
- acceleration of orthodontic treatment with the help of piezocision, vibration, LIPUS, biomechanics and surgery.
Dr. Nanda is the author of 8 books that study orthodontists from around the world, as well as an innovator in the field of creating orthodontic appliances and devices.
And all the seminar information is based on numerous clinical studies carried out under the guidance of a lecturer, which, among other things, have long-term results for more than 30 years!

Temporary anchorage devices (TAD). Treatment of the most complicated orthodontic cases
The introduction of Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs), safe devices and simple clinical use, has revolutionized the orthodontic world, simplifying otherwise very complex treatments, and making possible treatments otherwise impossible. During the last fifteen years, the use of TADs has deeply transformed our daily orthodontic practice, leading to new protocols and simplified orthodontic biomechanics. Nowadays, TADs are an integral part of orthodontic treatment, especially of complex patients, providing an reliable anchorage and allowing the orthodontists to apply force system which often cannot be applied efficiently with conventional mechanics.
However, the careful knowledge of the biomechanics and of the different types of movement, according to the point of application of the forces, of the bone and periodontal support, is still an indispensable element for an effective and efficient orthodontic treatment. Indeed, biomechanics principles are ever more important in designing appliances to deliver predictable force system.
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 in a sequential manner what methods of acceleration are viable and which ones are not. Piezocision, vibration, biomechanics and surgery first methods will be discussed in detail.
Lecturer:Ravindra Nanda Dr. Ravindra Nanda is Professor Emeritus, Former UConn Alumni Endowed Chair and Head of the Department of Craniofacial Sciences and Division of Orthodontics, University of Connecticut, Farmington, Connecticut, U.S.A.
He received his dental and orthodontic training first at Lucknow, India and then from Nymegen, The Netherlands and the University of Connecticut. He also received a Ph.D. from the University of Nymegen. He was an Assistant Professor of Orthodontics at Loyola University, Illinois from 1970 to 1972 and since 1972 he has been associated with the University of Connecticut.
He is an active member of various organizations, including the American Association of Orthodontists, European Orthodontic Society and Edward H. Angle Society. Dr. Nanda is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. He has given numerous named lectures at national and international societies including Mershon Lecture at American Association of Orthodontics and Sheldon Friel Lecture at 2011 EOS Congress. He has been recognized with various awards from numerous international orthodontic organizations.
Dr.Nanda has authored eight text books:
- Retention and Stability (with Dr.Burstone)
- Biomechanics in Clinical Orthodontics
- Biomechanic and Esthetic
- Strategies In Clinical Orthodontics, Temporary Anchorage Devices in Orthodontics (with Dr. Uribe)
- Current Therapy in Orthodontics(with Dr. Kapila)
- Esthetics and Biomechanics in Orthodontics
- Orthodontics, two volumes (with Prof. Farronato) and Atlas of Complex Orthodontics (with Dr. Uribe).
He has two new books coming out in 2019:
- Temporary Anchorage Devices (with Drs. Uribe and Yadav) and Principles and Biomechanics of Aligner Orthodontic Treatment (with Castroflorio, Garino and Ojima).
