In this last post of the year, we have organized a top ten list with the most popular videos of the blog. The numbers of views represent the ones related to 2018. This is now the third year of the blog, and we really thank the great audience we´re having around the world. Enjoy the videos! (Links in the titles)

 

1) UPRIGHTING MOLARS

The excessive inclination of mandibular molars is one of the most frequent malocclusions in adults. The root spring can solve this problem with great speed and efficiency. (10.922 views)

2) MOLARS DEROTATION

A real possibility to have a fast orthodontics consists in achieving precise dental movements, without significant side effects. The use of an activated transpalatal bar to derotate molars is a great example of efficiency (8.834 views)

3) MINISCREW APPLICATIONS: UPPER ARCH DISTALIZATION

In this video, we share some mechanical tips to optimize the upper arch distalization using Tads for anchorage and passive self-ligating brackets for sliding mechanics (8.389 views)

4) INTRUSION ARCHES ASSOCIATED WITH A CONTINUOUS WIRE

In this video, we associate the simplicity of a continuous wire with the accuracy of an intrusion arch. You will notice the speed and efficiency of this simple biomechanics.(4.740 views)

5) TYPES OF TOOTH MOVEMENT

A brief animation about the main types of tooth movement. The center of resistance and center of rotation can be easily seen in this video. (4.379 views)

6) MANDIBULAR MOLAR PROTRACTION 

The closing of edentulous spaces by molar protraction is a major challenge to the orthodontist. Learn in this video a simple and efficient mechanics to protract a mandibular molar, using a fixed functional appliance (PowerScope) for anchorage preservation. (3.773 views)

7) CENTER OF ROTATION

The center of rotation is a term widely used in the planning and description of orthodontic movements. This concept should be part of the universal language among orthodontists. Learn in this video how to find the center of rotation in 3 simple steps. (3.147 views)

8) TRANSPALATAL ARCH ACTIVATIONS

The activations of the inserts of the TPA can generate predictable force systems to move teeth in all three planes of space. In this video preview, we demonstrate how to perform first-order activations according to the six Burstone geometries. (2.466 views)

9) IDEAL ORTHODONTIC FORCE

A complete videolecture about the quest for the ideal orthodontic force. Are there really ideal values for every type of tooth movement? Learn in this videolecture the concept of ideal force and the variables involved in this issue. (2.457 views)

10) ATTRIBUTES OF FORCE

A nice whiteboard animation about the basic parameters of the force. Namely, they are magnitude, point of application, direction and sense of forces. (2.426 views)
