WHY FORCE DRIVEN ORTHODONTICS IN CASES WITH INCORRECT POSITION OF INCISORS
The position of the incisors, their bone and periodontal support is of great importance for periodontal health and aesthetics of the smile. The application of a straight arch in the first stage of leveling and alignment has limitations and causes some side effects. In cases of severe crowding,
ectopic position of incisors and deviations in their vestibulo-lingual inclination, the application of segmented arches and loops are highly recommended. It will tackle the unwanted effects of a straight arch system and allow better control of the torque of the incisors in both jaws; which is a
great challenge for orthodontists.
The aim of the presentation is to demonstrate the use of segmented technique in leveling incisors which are in an ectopic position. It will also detail aversion of side effects from a straight arch in the frontal region of the jaws and subsequent correction of torque to the incisors.
The proper biomechanical approach with the segmented arches allow differentiation of movements and determination of necessary line of force. It will lead to a movement as close as it can be to the biological one with the least amount of side effects.
