HISTORY OF ORTHODONTICS Contents Part I Introduction History of Dentistry Evolution of Orthodontics Historical perspective of biophysical aspects. American Orthodontics – Pre-Angle Era. – Angle Era Introduction “The heritages of the past are the seeds that bring forth the harvest of the future” Awareness of our historical antecedents has acquired more importance today, since changes are occurring so rapidly, that only by keeping our eyes steady on what went before can we progress with intelligence & confidence. “Not to know what has been transacted in former times is to continue always as a child. If no use is made of the labors of the past ages, the world must remain in the infancy of knowledge”. - Cicero, the great Roman orator History of Dentistry From the earliest times, humans have been plagued by dental problems & have sought a variety of means to alleviate them. First dental healers were physicians. Middle ages – Barber-surgeons of Europe. Learned by trial & error & observation. Pierre Fauchard through his treatise ‘Le Chirurgien dentiste’ established dentistry as a true profession. No longer mired in superstition & ignorance, the field was based at last on sound rational & scientific principles. Baltimore College of Dental Surgery – first dental college in the world – opened its doors to a class of 5 students on Nov 3rd, 1840. Evolution of the first dental specialty – Orthodontics Orthodontics is that branch of dentistry concerned with the study of growth of the craniofacial complex, the development of occlusion & the treatment of dentofacial anomalies. Weinberger points out that there had been an awareness of unsightly appearance of ‘crooked teeth’ Hippocrates (460-377B.C.) among the first to comment about craniofacial deformity. “Among those individuals with long-shaped heads, some have thick necks, strong parts & bones. Others have strongly arched palates, their teeth are irregularly arrayed, crowding one another & they are bothered by headaches & otorrhea. Adamandios (5th century A.D.) “Those persons whose lips are pushed out because of cuspid displacement are ill-tempered, abusive shouters & defamers”. Celsus (25B.C.) advocated that persistent deciduous teeth should be extracted & that permanent teeth which erupt in the wrong direction ought to be corrected by finger pressure. Celsus’ advise mentioned in ‘Artzney Buchlein’ – the oldest dental text book (1530). “If a second tooth should happen to grow in children before the first has fallen out, that which ought to be shed is to be drawn out & the new one daily pushed towards its place by means of the finger until it arrives at its proper position”. “When in a child a permanent tooth appears before the fall of milk tooth, it is necessary to dissect the gum all around the latter & extract it; the other tooth must then be pushed with the finger, day by day toward the place that was occupied by the one extracted & this is to be continued until it has finally reached its proper position”. First mechanical treatment for correcting irregularities suggested by Gaius Plinus Secundus (Pliny) (23-79A.D.) – advocated filing of elongated teeth to produce proper alignment. Specimens dating back to VIII century B.C. indicate Etruscans may have been the first people to employ orthodontic bands to improve tooth alignment. Crude appliances designed to regulate teeth have been found as archaeologic artifacts in tombs of ancient Egypt, Greece & the Mayans of Mexico. John Hunter (1728-1793) Greatest surgeon of 18th century. Detailed study of mouth & jaws of cadavers. 1771- ‘The Natural History of the Human Teeth: Explaining their Structure, Use, Formation, Growth & Diseases’. Exceptionally accurate plates. Perfect understanding of growth & development of jaws & their relations to the muscles of mastication. Scientific nomenclature – Incisors, Cuspids & Bicuspids. Disapproved extracting primary teeth to permit permanent teeth to erupt. But advocated first permanent molar is tooth to be sacrificed if insufficient room in the jaw for all teeth. Maintained that teeth do not grow throughout life time, only appear longer because antagonist is missing. Orthodontics, as we think of it today, has its root in France in 18th century when Pierre Fauchard (1728) – Father of Dentistry – described an orthodontic appliance ‘Bandlette’ later known as expansion arch. Orthodontia derived from 2 Greek words ‘Orthos’ – Right/Correct. ‘Dons’ – Tooth Term introduced by Frenchman LeFoulon in 1839. 1880 – Norman Kingsley – Father of Orthodontics – published ‘Treatise on Oral Deformities as a Branch of Mechanical Surgery’. 1888 – John N. Farrar – ‘Treatise on the Irregulations of Teeth & their Correction’. 1889 – Superseded by Simeon Guilford’s ‘Orthodontia’ – Standard text in dental colleges. Emergence of orthodontics as a true specialty was the result of dominant, dynamic & influential leadership of Edward H. Angle (1855-1930) – The Father of Modern Orthodontics. Angle was embittered with dental schools, dental school politics & domination of the schools by the operative & prosthetic departments. Though he taught prosthetics he found the mechanical procedural aspects stultifying. How could the moulding, guiding biologic science of orthodontia for children be thrown together with artificial replacements for the elderly? 1901 – American Society of Orthodontics was established. Constitution’s first article – confirmed the name. Second article – to establish the ‘science of orthodontia’ as a distinct dental specialty. “Not until orthodontia is studied & practiced as a distinct branch of dentistry will it ever obtain the success it deserves…. There should be a specialist in orthodontia in every city & town of any size; & the general practitioner should send to the specialist freely”. - Angle before Nebraska Dental Society in May 1890. Angle urged one of his young disciples Dr. Charles Tweed to – 1. Dedicate his life to the development of edgewise appliance. 2. To make every effort to establish orthodontics as a specialty within the dental profession. Dr. Tweed launched a one-man blitz by canvassing & arousing patients, persuading dentists, influencing politicians, speaking at meetings, having petitions signed & taking patients before the legislature. 1929 – Arizona legislature passed the first law limiting the practice of orthodontics to specialists. Dr. Tweed received Arizona’s Certificate No. 1 & became the first certified specialist in orthodontics in United States. Historical Perspective of the Biophysical Aspects 1863 – Harris – Orthodontic tooth movement is a result of bone resorption on one side & bone deposition on the other side of the root. Supported by Talbot (1888), Guilford (1896). Kingsley (1877) supported by Farrar (1888) claimed that bending of alveolar bone would take place during orthodontic tooth movement. Theories based on clinical observation & macroscopic studies. Sandstedt - First histological study of the problem of tooth movement. Importance of his observations on hyalinization & undermining resorption appreciated only 10 yrs later. Most important in development of orthodontic thinking- Albin Oppenheim (1911) – disciple of E.H. Angle. Refuted Walkhoff’s pressure theory – “overcoming the tension of bone by strong pressure for a very short time”. Oppenheim’s investigations with Angle’s appliances won recognition throughout the world. Orthodontic treatment regarded as tantamount to an artificially effected resorption & deposition of bone. Schwarz recognized the intimate relationship of force magnitude & tissue response. He classified orthodontic forces in 4 degrees of biological efficiency. Immense practical importance of tissue reaction to orthodontic treatment highlighted by Ketcham’s observations on root resorption subsequent to treatment with orthodontic appliances. German-speaking & American orthodontists reacted differently to the findings leading to a parting of ways. In the United States Pathologic effects of orthodontic therapy recognized. Heavy rigid appliances abandoned for resilient & efficient devices. E.H. Angle dominated the orthodontic scene in U.S. more than any one person in Europe. In Europe Early leaders studied more the role of craniofacial skeleton in dentofacial anomalies and malocclusion. So orthodontics referred in Europe as - Orthopedics - Orthopedie dentofaciale Development of American Orthodontics – The Pre-Angle Era First scientific attempt at tooth movement - by Pierre Fauchard using the ‘Bandlette’ Flat strip of metal formed into an arch. Pierced with holes for tying teeth with threads. Simple anchorage. Tipping movement. Lacked stability. No effective way to firmly fix it in position on the teeth. Etienne Bourdet (1722- 1789) Fauchard’s follower. Advocated extraction of first bicuspids to alleviate overcrowding. Described shifting of misaligned teeth into place by attaching them with threads to a splint of ivory. 1841- Schange a Frenchman invented the adjustable clamp band with introduction of a lingual screw. 1846 – Tucker described the use of rubber elastics though no importance given until Case & Baker used it to provide intermaxillary force & intermaxillary anchorage in 1893. 1861 – Coffin introduced flexible piano wire. 1861 – Kingsley introduced the headgear to apply extraoral force & provide occipital anchorage. Norman Williams Kingsley (1829- 1913) ‘Orthodontia’s greatest genius’ – E.H. Angle. Born on 2nd Oct 1829. Joined Dr. A.W. Kingsley, Pennsylvania. 1852 – first office in Oswego, New York. 1859 – made his first obturator. Prosthetic restorations for cleft patients - restored normal speech, improved facial appearance. 1865 – founder & first dean of New York University College of Dentistry. 1871 – Honorary degree from Baltimore College of Dental Surgery. 1880 – ‘A Treatise on Oral Deformities as a Branch of Mechanical Surgery. Cleft palate prostheses. Artificial replacement of missing parts. External immobilization. Over 100 articles on Cleft palate rehabilitation. Inadequacies of cleft palate surgery. Obturators. Orthodontic diagnosis. Orthodontic appliances. 1880 – described his plate for ‘jumping the bite’ – forerunner of modern functional appliances. Early awareness of orthodontic potential for adults patients. Practice of orthodontics altered forever with the invention of dental cement by Magill of Erie, Pennsylvania. In this period – Treatment modalities formulated without benefit of scientific methodology. Goal of treatment – improved cosmetics. No consideration to occlusal function or biological concepts. Injudicious extractions. Controlling factors in appliance design - Ease of appliance manipulation. - Patient management. The Angle Era Most dominant, dynamic & influential figure in orthodontics – Edward Hartley Angle (1855- 1930). Father of Modern Orthodontics. Born on a farm in Pennsylvania on June 1st, 1855 – fifth of seven children. Never an outstanding student in “book-learnin” Marked ability to improve & create mechanical equipment on the farm. Developed a passion for simplicity in design. Apprenticed himself to a dentist at his mother’s request. 1878- Graduated from Pennsylvania College of Dentistry. Being at heart an inventor, the field of general dentistry offered little interest in original mechanical investigation. Angle became keenly interested in orthodontics. Experienced many technical problems & frustrations in treatment which irritated, motivated & inspired him to develop a standard appliance. 5 properties of an ideal orthodontic appliance- 1. SIMPLE – Push, Pull & Rotate 2. STABLE – Fixed to teeth. 3. EFFICIENT – Based on Newton’s 3rd law of anchorage. 4. DELICATE – Accepted by tissues. 5. INCONSPICUOUS – Esthetically acceptable. 1880 – “First real appliance” – the jack & traction screw with pushing action. Combination of adjustable clamp band of Schange & regulating screw of Dwinelle. 1887 – introduced the Angle System. 1887 – Appointed to chair of orthodontia in dental department of University of Minnesota. Read his paper, ‘Notes on Orthodontia with a New System of Regulation & Retention’ at 9th International Medical Congress. 1887 – Ohio Journal of Dental Science. 1888 – Lecture to Iowa State Dental Society – demonstrated expansion arch & its auxiliaries. 1894 – Professor of Orthodontia at Marian Sims College, receiving MD degree the following year. Concepts of Prosthetic occlusion developed in the late 1800s. “The best balance, the best harmony, the best proportions of the mouth in its relation to the other features require that there shall be a full complement of teeth & that each tooth shall be made to occupy its normal position - i.e. normal occlusion. Angle developed classification of malocclusion based on this principle – ‘Dental Cosmos’ in 1899. Angle’s postulates Upper first molars are the key to occlusion. Most remarkably stable landmark in craniofacial anatomy – upper first molars. Upper & lower molars should be related so that the mesiobuccal cusp of the upper molar occludes in the buccal groove of the lower molar. Line of occlusion – The line with which, in form & position according to type, the teeth must be in harmony if in normal occlusion. Angle’s classification has 4 classes: On being asked about his ‘discovery’ of the constancy of the upper first molar Angle said – “I though about it & I thought about it & all at once it came to me. Anybody who disagrees with me must be a fool”. Angle was influenced by Rousseau & the German physiologist Wolff. Rousseau emphasized the perfectability of man. This led Angle to believe that every person has the potential for an ideal relationship of all 32 natural teeth. German physiologist Wolff discovered in early 1900s that the internal architecture of bone responds to stresses placed on that part of the skeleton. So Angle reasoned that if the teeth were placed in proper occlusion, forces transmitted to the teeth would cause bone to grow around them & stabilize them even if a great deal of arch expansion had occurred. Angle consulted the famous artist of the day Professor Wuerpel for the ideal facial form. Wuerpel ridiculed that it is impossible to specify any one facial form as ideal. Hence Angle concluded that the ideal facial esthetics for a person would result when the teeth were placed in ideal occlusion for that person. Angle stated “The idea of a postgraduate school was forced upon me because I wished to see those who had a desire to study orthodontia better receive the opportunity to do so”. Angle had commenced informal instructions in orthodontia in his office in 1900. He placed the following advertisements for the Angle School of Orthodontia – “For the fitting of teachers & specialists in orthodontia. Two short sessions are held each year, beginning Nov 1st & May 1st. Postgraduates in dentistry & only those thoroughly ethical, received. Class limited to 15 members. For information, address Edward H. Angle, MD, DDS, 1107 North Grand Ave., St. Louis, Mo.” Course of instruction included art, rhinology, embryology, histology, comparative anatomy & dental anatomy in addition to Angle’s appliances. Among his early students were Dewey, Pullen, Mershon, McCoy, Oppenheim, Weinberger & Fred Noyes. In May 1900 at a banquet in Dr. Angle’s office, the students & teachers decided that “the time was ripe” for an Orthodontic Society. Thus was born ‘The American Society of Orthodontists’. On June 11, 1901, 10 charter members elected Angle as president. The constitution of the society had these 3 articles – 1st – confirmed the name 2nd – to establish ‘science of orthodontia’ as a distinct dental specialty. 3rd – invited ethical dentists with a special interest in orthodontia to become active members. In his presidential speech, Angle – paid his respects to Norman Kingsley, John Farrar, Simeon Guilford, Calvin Case, Henry Baker, Rodrigues Ottolengui, Victor Hugo Jackson & others, who helped extricate orthodontics from the web of prosthetics. hit at politics in dental organization- ‘bane & cause of dry rot within organizations.’ emphasized that the ultimate development of orthodontia will not come about until the present rotten & disgraceful method of dental education is abolished & supplanted by correct principles which reject the damnable practice of extracting first molars. 1 among the 2 women of the 10 charter members was Anna Hopkins of St. Louis. Later became Anna Hopkins Angle – “Mother Angle”. Cecil Steiner said “She was a suitable counterfoil for Edward H. & also she was the power behind the throne”. 1907 – moved his school to New York. 1908 – moved his school to New London, Conn., - 6 week sessions at 200$ till 1911. Decided to give up practice of orthodontia & devote himself to study, teaching & development of better appliances. 1916 – made Pasadena, California their permanent home to avoid the hardships of Eastern winters. James Angle – first student of Edward H. Angle College of Orthodontia in California. 1922 – Graduates of Pasadena, St. Louis & New London formed the Edward H. Angle Society. No officers, no bylaws, society run by Angle. Angle attended the last society meeting on June 1928 in New London, Conn. The society ceased to exist after his passing away in 1930. Nov 17, 1930 – society reorganized & restarted from former members. At this meeting ‘The Angle Orthodontist’ was born. Mrs. Angle – Editor-in-chief. First official address by Charles Tweed on “The History & Revision of Arizona Law”. 1907-E -Arch Appliance Simplicity. Heavy interrupted forces. Tipping of teeth to new position. Not possible to precisely position any individual teeth. 1912-Pin and Tube Appliance Move the teeth bodily. ‘Bone growing appliance’. Capable of great precision in tooth movement. Incredible degree of craftsmanship. Impractical in clinical use. Poor spring qualities. Main disadvantages of pin and tube appliance - Lack of mesiodistal control - Archwire placement. 1915-Ribbon Arch Appliance First bracket. Vertically positioned rectangular slot with ribbon arch of 10 x 20 gold wire. Good spring qualities. Allowed versatile movements. Unable to achieve mesiodistal tipping movements. Not possible to provide stabilization or anchorage of posterior teeth. Did not allow to torque roots to a new position. 1928-Edgewise Appliance ‘Latest and the best’. Rectangular wire of 0.022 x 0.028 inch inserted in a horizontal slot. Excellent control of crown & root position in all three planes of space. Mastered complex metallurgy & had immense knowledge of noble metals. Angle-The controversial man Possessed extraordinary technical skills, very inventive mind & an unbending, uncompromising, maverick nature. His national stature, his close relations with members of the medical profession & his writings served to create jealousies among dental faculties. ‘incestuous interquote’- a term coined by Doris Graber, political scientist. ‘New school’ of orthodontics - Angle’s gospel of non-extraction, expansionist, occlusion-oriented orthodontic orthodoxy. Dr. Calvin Case-(1847-1923). Born on April 24 ,1847 in Michigan. Military service in the civil war. 1871-Graduated from Ohio college of dental surgery. 1884-University of Michigan Medical School. 1890-General Dentistry in Chicago & Professor of Prosthodontic Dentistry & Orthodontia at the Chicago College of Dental Surgery. 1892-First to stress on root movement & used rubber elastics in treatment. Rehabilitation of cleft palate deformities-Case type of obturator still in use. Case was a genuine admirer of Angle. 1903-The Discord -Angle attributed the origin of the use of intermaxillary elastics to Baker. The ‘Bombshell’ - Case reintroduced the concept of removal of certain teeth to enable correction of malocclusion and improve general health. The Great Extraction Controversy of 1920s Martin Dewey (1881-1933). Born in 1881, Kansas. 1902-attended one of the first classes of Angle school of orthodontics. 1914- ‘Practical orthodontics’ - orthodontic philosophy and mechanical procedures. 1911-Dewey school of orthodontia. 1915-with Dr.C.V. Mosby, Dewey founded and became editor of the International Journal of Orthodontia (now AJO). Editor for 17 years. 1931 - President of ADA. Merciless in fighting for truth and against the empiricism of the day. ‘Science Knows No Friends’. 1911-Annual meeting of the National Dental Association now ADA. Debate between Dewey & Case-one of the most sharpest and most heated controversies. But Angle & his followers won the day. Extraction of teeth for orthodontic purpose essentially disappeared from the orthodontic scene in the period between the two world wars. Angle’s unbending anti-extraction, expansionist, dogmatic philosophy may have hindered as much as helped orthodontic development. His students blindly & uncompromisingly followed the leader. Angle died on August 11, 1930 but his influence is still felt very strongly in orthodontics. “I have finished my work, it is as perfect as I can make it”. 1900-1910 Era of manufacture of standardized appliances. Dental supply companies sold appliances made as sets, dentists could make required fitting by soldering. Victor Hugo Jackson (1850-1929) Pioneer of removable appliances in US.

Translated Paul Simons German book ‘Diagnosis of Dental Anomalies’. Stressed relationship between muscles, malformation & malocclusion. “It is my firm belief that irreparable damage is done by oft repeated advice to wait until the permanent teeth are all erupted before beginning operations for correction of malocclusion”. 1910-1920 1911 - Albin Oppenheim - Serious study of tissue changes during orthodontic tooth movement. John. V. Mershon (1867-1953) introduced removable lingual arch based on the principle that teeth must be free & unrestricted for adaptation to normal growth. Albert. H.
