7. Influence of topical fluorides on mechanical and electrochemical properties of commercial nickel titanium and copper nickel titanium orthodontic archwires - Dr Maï-linh Tran (Houston Best Scientific Poster Award winner)

12:15-12:30 - Houston Awards and Poster Prizes

The Annual Conference is an exciting opportunity to stay informed and remain connected to the profession during these challenging times. It is also an excellent occasion to view and celebrate the best research in topics of orthodontic interest, with the ever popular scientific and clinical poster presentations that can be viewed from 21 June to 3 July, and the Houston Oral Research and Poster Awards

The Sheldon Friel Memorial Lecture given by Professor Susan Cunningham with the title: "It's not just about the teeth" will be held on Friday 2 July, 19:00-20:00 BST. This honour is awarded by the Council of the EOS to a person who is an orthodontist, or who has interests associated with orthodontics, as recognition of past scientific achievement.

The Annual Conference represents up to 5 hours of verifiable Continuing Professional Development (5 CPD points).

Sheldon Friel Memorial Lecture: It's not just about the teeth...

Professor Susan Cunningham
Professor of Orthodontics/Honorary Consultant at the UCL Eastman Dental Institute, London, UK

Speaker Bio
Susan Cunningham graduated from Leeds University, UK, in 1988. Her orthodontic training was undertaken at the Eastman Dental Institute in London, gaining an MSc in 1994, Membership in Orthodontics in 1995 and PhD in 2000. She is now Professor of Orthodontics/ Honorary Consultant at the UCL Eastman Dental Institute and is also Programme Director of the postgraduate orthodontic programme. She is a past honorary secretary of the European Orthodontic Society and is currently Director of Research for the British Orthodontic Society.

Her main research interests are in the psychology of dentofacial discrepancies and the process and outcomes of orthodontic treatment. She has published more than 125 original research papers and contributed to a number of specialist textbooks.

Learning Objectives
  1. Be able to describe what patient centred research is

  2. Appreciate how patient centred research works alongside more conventional clinical research and recognise its importance in orthodontics
  3. Be able to discuss how patient centred research may contribute to the development of orthodontic services in the future


This presentation will look at the importance of undertaking research which examines the needs, values and role of our patients and which focuses on those questions and outcomes which matter most to them. The importance of seeking patient input and taking into account patients’ opinions at all stages of treatment will be considered, alongside the research evidence. The implications for this area of research in future healthcare planning will also be discussed.

The rational use of CBCT and a novel 3D cephalometric analysis in orthodontics.
How to integrate 3D cephalometry with maxilla facial visual treatment planning.

Learning Objectives

  1. Learn how a 3D cephalometry integrated in an image processing software provides detailed information about the anthropometric structure of the human skull.

  2. Obtain the nosological classification of the subject under examination and make the correct diagnosis, using the information provided by the cephalometry.

  3. Observe how the cephalometry performed in the post-surgical phase provides skeletal information on the objectives achieved and the resolution of the malocclusion.


Since its introduction into dentistry in 1998, CBCT has become increasingly utilized for orthodontic diagnosis, treatment planning and research. . Despite many suggested indications of CBCT, scientific evidence that its utilization improves diagnosis and treatment plans or outcomes has only recently begun to emerge for some of these applications. Cone beam computerized tomography (CBCT) is becoming increasingly common in the orthodontic office and a wide range of software is now available. What is the state-of-the-art of CBCT prescription according to international guidelines? And what might we expect from CBCT in orthodontics in the future?
Orthodontic dental classification used is dated more than 100 years ago. Skeletal and dental classification of malocclusion has an important role in diagnosis and treatment planning. Facial types of a multidimensional nature derive from the combination of anteroposterior and vertical dimensions.
Cephalometric measurements can be used to establish facial symmetry and three-dimensional standard references which might be useful for orthodontic and surgical planning.
We propose a novel 3D Multiplanar cephalometry useful for nosological classification of skeletal malocclusions.
