Common Sense Mechanics for Challenging Malocclusions – In-Office Lecture

Self-ligating brackets and the concept of low friction brought to the orthodontic market an increasing number of innovative treatment techniques and philosophies mainly centered on the characteristics of the used brackets and wires. Unfortunately, this took away attention from the solid principles of a correct and detailed diagnosis, focusing on the concept of “simple” and “pre-packaged” orthodontics, in which the malocclusions adapt to the mechanics and not vice-versa. New generation brackets and archwires should not guide the treatment decisions but guarantee the clinician complete reliability in the expression of the prescription values and simplify the journey towards the treatment objectives. Low friction is often synonymous of lack of control, especially when using passive-type brackets, because of the use of undersized archwires in oversized slots, generating difficulties in torque control, rotation control and finishing of the occlusion. Dual activation was designed for the need to guarantee maximum torque control in the anterior segment without losing the benefits of the low friction in the posterior segments.

During my in-office lecture, I’ll share my experiences on why Dual activation with an .022 slot makes it possible to optimise treatment. Furthermore, the use of TADs and modern digital planning will be described in detail. Theoretical sessions on treatment planning and case presentations will be combined with a clinical session on live patients.
