Why do we need a specific blog about biomechanics?
The orthodontist needs to understand that the orthodontic appliances are only instruments for the application of force systems. The cells of the periodontal ligament and alveolar bone, responsible for the tooth movement, cannot identify the type of appliance, wire or bracket brand you are using. In fact, the cells responses will depend on the direction, the intensity and the sense of the applied forces.
Therefore, the professional must have a good knowledge of biomechanics, since this is the main way to obtain aesthetic and functional results according to the level of excellence required by the specialty.
Watch the video below presenting our blog, highlighting the objectives of the creation of this channel for learning the scientific principles that guide the orthodontic biomechanics.
