Main Research Areas

The Department of Orthodontics not only studies the classification, etiology, and treatment of malocclusion, but also puts effort on various basic and clinical scientific researches in cooperation with other departments to correct congenital and acquired facial deformities. Clinically, the department deals with the patients with deformities in the jawbone, abnormal alignment of teeth, and unaesthetic facial profile, to accomplish the maximum esthetic and functional outcome for individual patients. Computerized analysis and prediction of treatment changes in the facial bones and soft tissues are available for better understanding and communication between patient and doctors. In terms of research, three-dimensional diagnostic tools using computed tomography and laser scanning system have been developed and molecular biology works related to orthodontics are being conducted, to find the etiology of various malocclusions and facial deformities. Various approaches to improve the efficiency of orthodontic treatment and to develop better appliances are being performed. Constant clinical researches are accordingly carried out to establish treatment modalities using newly developed appliances such as orthodontic mini-implants. Active exchange of personnel and knowledge with foreign schools and departments in the United States, Japan, and Europe are also actively proceeded for synergistic development of each parties.
