A large number of prescriptions for pre-adjusted straight-wire appliances are available, which chiefly vary in their in-built torque values with the intention of reducing or eliminating the need to bend torque into archwires. This lecture will examine and illustrate the rationale underlying our choices of torque prescription and the actual numerical effects of these choices in clinical practice. The intention is to encourage a more thoughtful and effective employment of torque prescriptions and therefore more rapid, more consistent and better finished results.

Application of CBCT in Various Modes of Corrective Orthodontic Treatment
3D technology is expanding our horizon and allowing clinicians to alter their views by not only providing practicality but also a true understanding of the maxillary and mandibular anatomy. Angular, linear and volumetric measurements can be performed, which can then influence diagnoses as well as clinical judgments and treatment plans. The bony housing of the teeth and the dentition needs thorough evaluation and respect during orthodontic mechanotherapy. The presentation will focus on methods to evaluate the available alveolar bone and the effects of various types of orthodontic treatment.
Discuss methods for evaluating the alveolar bone
Recognize the effects of orthodontics and orthopedics in non-extraction treatment.
Evaluate the effects of extraction treatment on the alveolar bone
