“Orthodontic Practice US asked me to write a piece discussing the biology of the jaw bone as teeth shift during orthodontic treatment,” says Wilmette area orthodontist Dr. Stosich. “They’re a well-respected publication for professionals in my field, so I was happy to contribute.”

The article is the first in a series spotlighting the biology of orthodontic movement. In the article, Dr. Stosich explains how the jaw bone’s distinct structure facilitates the orthodontic “phenomenon” by offering a thorough dissection of the bone’s anatomy and the processes involved in bone remodeling. He stresses the importance of orthodontists possessing an in-depth understanding of bone physiology to deliver ideal results for patients.

As evidenced by his appearance in the magazine, Dr. Stosich is regarded as an authority in tooth movement biology.

“Long thought of as a static structure of the body used mainly to support and protect, bone has been shown to be a very dynamic system in constant modeling and remodeling to optimize its strength and mass,” says Dr. Stosich in the article.
