BIOMECHANICS, A TOOL FOR SOCIAL ORTHODONTICS
The economic and cultural situation of the most vulnerable population leads to very serious oral health conditions. With the aim of helping them recover their oral health, a multidisciplinary treatment should be carried out, where orthodontics plays a leading role. Despite the great technological advances in orthodontics, the application of biomechanical concepts becomes the main treatment tool in these complicated cases.
