AM662 – Advanced Straight Wire Mechanics
This course provides a review of basic mechanics such as bracketing positioning, arch wire progressions, and the proper use of high and low load deflection arch wires.
The use of Cephalometric measurements to aid in determining prescribed mechanics will be demonstrated in detail.
Advanced mechanics, including incisor intrusion, upper and lower arch expansion, space closure, and upper molar distalization are emphasized.
Demonstrated treatment modalities include: utility arches, RPE’s, TPA’s, magnets, headgear, and repositioning appliances.
Slide documentation will demonstrate the progression of numerous cases from initial diagnosis through retention.
Formulation of treatment plans and goals will be discussed with an emphasis on the proper use of appliances to achieve these goals.
