The deep knowledge of biomechanics is an invaluable asset for any orthodontist, since any kind of orthodontic therapy using all kinds of technique or approach, can deeply benefit from it.

The knowledge of biomechanics allows for a real understanding of the therapy we perform every day, making our appliance effects predictable and letting us understand the reasons of our possible
mistakes. Finally e deep knowledge of biomechanics allows the orthodontist for the design of specific, tailor made appliances, that may be needed to solve problems with a special degree of difficulty.

Unfortunately, the learning of this subject is quite demanding and many orthodontists prefer to avoid to face its difficulties and delegate most of their work to “smart” or “intelligent” wires or brackets, with sometime questionable results.

After having lectured for so many years about biomechanics, and after we have been working together for more than 20 years on the “Biomechanics in Orthodontics” software, we have decided to undertake this new challenge of teaching the “real” biomechanics in five weeks of hard work.
