This lecture simplifies biomechanics by presenting just a few fundamental rules for tendencies produced by single forces and couples. Once you know these “rules”, simple treatment strategies can be devised to accomplish planned objectives. Moving teeth can be efficient and predictable.
Define what discrete tooth movement “tendencies” are produced by forces and couples.
Discuss how understanding just a few rules allows you to implement efficient and predictable treatment strategies.
Propose common examples for applying simple strategies and mechanics.
