Sliding mechanics with light forces

Pinzas Torque Idividual Ortodoncia

In 1990, a method of controlled space closure was described3 using sliding mechanics. This has proved effective and reliable for many years, and has seen widespread acceptance by-clinicians. The authors recommend the following technique Archwires. Rectangular 019 .025 steel wires 'working wires' Fig. 9.15 are recommended with the .022 slot, because this size of wire gives good overbite control while allowing free sliding through the buccal segments. Thinner wires tend to give less overbite and...
