The first part of the lecture will briefly review the bone biology and mechanics of tooth movement. Mechanotransduction, the mechanostat hypothesis, tensegrity, and the regional acceleratory phenomenon will be described.
This will be followed by an examination and explanation of techniques that are being employed to accelerate tooth movement. The summary will distill these techniques into a few simple rules on tooth movement developments. Limitations of our understanding will also be enumerated.

In the second part and after reviewing convention cephalometrics and 3D reconstruction techniques, it will be given an overview of CBCT methods and development. Numerous examples of unusual cases, incidental findings, and pathology will be shown.

At the end, questions will be welcome.
