About the author:
Dr. Federico Brugnami received his DDS from the University of Rome and his certificate in periodontics at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, becoming a Diplomate of The American Board of Periodontology in 1998. He is a former clinical instructor at Tufts University and a visiting lecturer at Nova Southeastern University, Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Dr. Brugnami completed a two-year hospital training program in orthodontics at the Alta Padovana Cittadella (PD) Italy. He has written several publications on bone grafting and regeneration, implants and osteogenic orthodontics, and is an active lecturer at meetings, academic seminars and private courses in Italy, the United States, Japan, Bahamas, Austria, and Switzerland on the subjects of periodontics and implants and perio-orthodontics. Dr. Brugnami is in private practice in Rome, Italy.
Dr. Alfonso Caiazzo received his dental degree at the University of Naples, Italy, and went through a residency program in oral and maxillofacial surgery at Tufts University in Boston. He was a clinical instructor at Tufts in the department of oral surgery and did a fellowship in implant dentistry at the New York University. His office is located in Salerno, Italy, and his practice is limited to oral surgery and implant dentistry. He is member of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, and the Academy of Osseointegration and he is a member of the national committee of the Italian Society of Oral Surgery and Implant Dentistry. He has lectured at national and international symposia and he is author of several scientific articles.
The first book of its kind, Orthodontically Driven Corticotomy describes how to apply this innovative technique to orthodontic treatment protocols. More than simply discussing orthodontic applications, the editors demonstrate how corticotomies enhance inter- and multidisciplinary treatments. Different surgical approaches are described, with indications on how to select the most appropriate one, to increase efficiency of orthodontic movement, and minimize the surgical exposure for the patient at the same time.
Readers will learn how to apply the technique to expand the basal bone, regenerate periodontal tissues, combine corticotomy and anchorage devices, manage partial edentulism, treat impacted teeth, and become more efficient in orthodontic treatment.
Surgical steps are illustrated with more than 200 clinical photographs.
