Biology in Orthodontics

By on 8-07-2011 in Orthodontia

Orthodontics is a specialty where mechanic and biology are integrated. To know the details of biological events that unfold during tooth movement is important. Clinical Orthodontics is a specialty staunchly entrenched in biology, mechanics, physiology and pathology.

Tooth movement results from forces applied to teeth that evoke cellular response in teeth and surrounding tissues.

The tooth movement is conducted in individual human beings, each composed of a unique and intricate physiologic system. The differences that are observed in the results of orthodontic treatment between patients with similar malocclusions treated similarly, may depend on biological variations.
