Affiliated to the orthodontic department of University of Aarhus, Denmark, where he has been involved in the short term and post graduate teaching, since 1992. Affiliated to the orthodontic department of the University of Buffalo USA, where he has been teaching from 2011 to 2014. Secretary General of the Italian Orthodontic society in the years 98-99. Vice- president of Italian Society of of Orthodontic Biomechanics in the years 1999-2002. His main professional interests are: orthodontic biomechanics, use of computer within the orthodontic practice (especially related to mechanics design and treatment planning), segmented arch technique and adult orthodontic treatment. He has published  about 30  papers about the above mentioned fields. Has co-published with Prof. Birte Melsen the “Biomechanics in Orthodontics” multimedia software , presently at release 4. Co-writer in two chapters of the book “Adult Orthodontics” edited by Birte Melsen, and in the book orthodontic Pearls, edited by Larry White. Author of the chapter “Statically Determined Appliances and Creative Mechanics” in the textbook “The Biomechanical Foundation of Clinical Orthodontics” edited by Prof. Burstone and Choy. Invited speaker at meetings of American, European, Italian,  Japanese,  Australian, Finnish, Greek and Greater Dallas orthodontic societies. Has lectured about biomechanics at the  universities of Aarhus – Denmark, Edmonton - Canada, Baylor – Dallas, New York (NYU and Columbia), Buffalo, Philadelphia and Chicago. USA, Berlin Humboldt – Germany and several Italian schools. He was responsible for “Adult orthodontics” postgraduate program at the University of Siena, Italy 2002 to 2013. He currently holds private courses of biomechanics in Italy, Poland and Portugal, and is head of the International Orthodontic Biomechanics School, which organizes an intensive five weeks program attended by orthodontists worldwide.

“The Biomechanical Foundation of Clinical Orthodontics”

Even if not all orthodontists are aware of it, all clinical orthodontics is essentially based on biomechanics. For this reason the title of the last book of my mentor, Prof. C.J Burstone, is “The Biomechanical Foundation of Clinical Orthodontics”, and to honour him this will be the title of my presentation.  Indeed, the deep knowledge of biomechanics is an invaluable asset for any orthodontist, since any kind of orthodontic therapy, using whatever technique or approach, can deeply benefit from it.


This knowledge allows for a real understanding of the therapy we perform every day, making our appliance effects predictable and letting us comprehend the reasons of our possible mistakes. Finally, a deep knowledge of biomechanics allows the orthodontist for the design of specific, taylor-made appliances, that may be needed to solve problems with a special degree of difficulty, without the obligation of making blind tests on our patients.
In our one day course, we will try to give an essential view of the most important theoretical biomechanics concepts and see how these can have an impact in improving our daily practice.

In this course you will learn:
•    What is a force system and its basic vectors.
•    That there is a univoque relation between any dental movement and the force system that will generate it.
•    How to evaluate anchorage need and manage it with or without TADs
•    How to obtain simple or more complex movements in  a predictable way using statically determined systems
•    Which are the limits of the standard straight-wire appliance.
•    How we can move the limits of everyday orthodontic therapy.
 

Dr. Peter H. Buschang

Dr. Buschang is a Regents Professor and director of orthodontic research at Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry. He was a NIDCR postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Orthodontics University of Connecticut Health Science Center from 1980-1983, and then a FRSQ scholar in the Orthodontic section and Human Growth Research Center at the University of Montreal from 1983-1988. His research interests focus on craniofacial growth, developmental adaptations to orthodontic and surgical treatments and oral-motor function. He has published over 270 peer-reviewed articles, three books and numerous book chapters.  Dr. Buschang has given over 120 invited lectures and workshops, and has served as associate editor for several journals. He is the only person to hold honorary memberships in both the American Association of Orthodontics and the Edward H. Angle Society. In 2011, his former residents honored him by establishing the Peter H. Buschang Endowed Professorship in Orthodontics. 

"The development, etiology and orthopedic treatment of Class II and Class III malocclusions"

Treatments should work with, rather than against, growth changes that normally occur. In order to perform effective and efficient orthopedic treatments, the orthodontist must understand how the untreated craniofacial complex adapts to positional and rotations changes of the jaws.  This is why understanding the craniofacial growth of subjects with untreated Class I and Class II malocclusions is fundamental for performing appropriate diagnoses and treatment plans. Moreover, understand the development and etiology of malocclusion makes it possible to introduce novel treatment approaches based on fundamental growth principles.  For Class II’s, the primary skeletal problem is mandibular hyperdivergence and all of the associated skeletal adaptations. The skeletal problems start early and become progressively more pronounced with age, making treatments increasing more challenging.  It will be shown that mandibular true rotation is the key for treating these malocclusions. By controlling vertical tooth positions, it is possible to rotate the mandible and orthopedically correct  vertical and AP mandibular position, alter mandibular shape, and improve facial profile.  For Class IIIs, the primary skeletal problem is a protrusive, hyperdivergent, mandible, and more limited amounts of maxillary involvement.  Facemasks, which produce small orthopedic maxillary effects and increase mandibular hyperdivergence, improve the AP but not the vertical skeletal relations.  New approaches that provide for greater maxillary protraction, vertical control of the mandible, and reshaping of the Class III mandible will be introduced. Orthopedic corrections require skeletal anchorage.  It will be shown that miniscrew implants provide a means for reliably and predictably correcting both Class II and Class III skeletal problems.
 

De heer Peter van der Wel

Peter van der Wel verzorgt als econoom en futuroloog al meer dan 20 jaar lezingen en presentaties over de toekomst en is een veelgevraagd spreker! Van zijn hand verschenen verschillende boeken, zoals 'Internetdemocratie', 'Internet en Gemeenten', 'Sneller-Beter-Goedkoper-Gemakkelijker-Gelukkiger', 'Economie voor Wereldverbeteraars' en recent: 'De Toekomst is al begonnen'. Tijdens zijn presentaties neemt Peter de aanwezigen aan de hand van lichtbeelden mee op een tijdreis van verleden naar de toekomst. Hij laat zien hoe de wereld om ons heen steeds sneller verandert, doordat informatie steeds sneller, goedkoper en gemakkelijker de wereld rondgaat. Welke gevolgen zal dat hebben voor mensen, organisaties en samenleving? Gaan we een paradijs op aarde tegemoet met welvaart en voorspoed voor ons allen, of komen we terecht in een draaikolk van milieurampen, oorlogen, epidemieën, terroristische aanslagen, schaarste, honger en andere ellende?Tot 2012 was Peter als organisatieadviseur verbonden aan het organisatieadviesbureau Rijnconsult. Van 1998 tot 2006 was hij directeur van verschillende stichtingen die werken op het terrein van internet en de nieuwe media, zoals de Safe Internet Foundation (SIF), Nederlands Instituut voor Telemedicine (NITEL) en het EPN (Electronic-highway Platform Nederland). Peter is lid van de World Future Society en mede-oprichter en bestuurslid van de Dutch Future Society.

"De toekomst is al begonnen"

Gezonde jongen mensen die nu leven, vormen de eerste generatie die niet zeker weten dat ze dood zullen gaan. 3D geprinte organen, kunnen binnen 10-15 jaar gewoon oudere niet meer goed functionerende organen vervangen. Als mensheid staan we momenteel op een tweesprong. Als we het slim organiseren kunnen we binnen 10-15 jaar voorzien in de basisbehoeften van alle wereldburgers. Maar de kans is ook heel groot dat we terechtkomen in een neerwaartse spiraal van elkaar uitlokkende en versterkende rampen.  Ineenstortende ecosystemen, terroristische aanslagen, falende natiestaten, groeiende vreemdelingenhaat, massale volksverhuizingen, groeiende criminaliteit, religieus fanatisme, epidemieën met onbeheersbare virussen en bacteriën, wetenschappelijke ontsporingen, economische crises en oorlogen om schaarser wordende grondstoffen.
