Force Levels of Aligning Wires 
Presenter: Dr. Hisham Badawi
Credits:  1 CEU Release Date: 4/13/10
CE Supporter: Ormco   Reviewed: 2020     Expiration Date: 4/13/23

For the first time in the history of orthodontics, the development of 3D force measurement technology is delivering precise information concerning the magnitude and direction of applied forces. Dr. Hisham Badawi will report on results from the latest research at the University of Alberta that assesses resistance to sliding and changes in forces during tooth movement as they directly relate to wire alloy properties. Dr. Badawi will report on how binding occurs as a consequence of friction and surface material properties of both wires and the brackets as well as the clinical implications.   ( disclaimer, bio and commercial disclosure )
