SOR 715 - Biomechanics 2 (Orthodontics)

0.5 Credit(s)

As Biomechanics 1 SOR 712  is a prerequisite, this course is a continuation. In this course, post-doctoral orthodontics residents will discuss equilibrium, which is based on Newton’s First Law, as it relates to orthodontic biomechanics. Topics discussed with clinical application and case scenarios are the biomechanics of tooth movement, orthodontics anchorage, stress, strain, and the biologic response, forces from wires and brackets, Burstone’s six bracket geometries, the role of friction in orthodontic appliances. A synthesis of the biomechanical principles learned in these courses are applied for the solutions of common clinical problems encountered in orthodontics. Spring semester.

Prerequisite(s): SOR 712 .
