Case Finishing & Mechanics

Course Objectives

The purpose of this course is to help finish orthodontic cases using important wire bends thus torquing and tipping roots and crowns quickly and efficiently.

Pre-Course Agenda Video

Prior to this course, participants will receive a link to the pre course video which contains the following information to help understand the science behind the various bends to move teeth and enhance case finishing. This will allow Dr. Palencar to clearly demonstrate the various bends/techniques and show numerous orthodontic cases utilizing these bends throughout the course.

Biokinetics of Orthodontic Tooth Movement

  • Clinical responses
  • Histological responses
  • Principals of anchorage
  • Orthodontic relapse

Principles of Biomechanics

  • Moments and forces
  • Couples
  • Types of movements
