Mechanotherapy In Orthodontics

Mechanotherapy in Orthodontics is Volume 1 in a series on comprehensive Orthodontic treatment. This easy-to-read, well-illustrated book clearly explains how bracket and wire designs work to generate one- and two-couple systems and how clinicians can harness them to optimize Orthodontic treatment.

Mechanotherapy in Orthodontics

Mechanotherapy in Orthodontics is the science of engineering precise and efficient procedures to accomplish desired skeletal and dental changes and movements. This is Volume I of a series that guides the Orthodontists and Orthodontics Residents on how to use physics and biology principles to deliver accurate and efficient treatment for their patients.

Volume I focuses on application of physical rules in Orthodontics from basic concepts to more advance topics. Understanding these concepts are necessary for understanding the future volumes of this series. This book has been written in a very simple language and no previous knowledge in physics or mechanics is required. Rich illustrations in this book, allows the readers to grasp the concept quickly without a need for memorization. This book is used as a teaching tool in many universities in USA and around the world.










Mani Alikhani, DMD, MS, PhD

Dr. Alikhani is Professor and CEO of CTOR, and faculty at Harvard School of Dental Medicine. CTOR, the only center in the world dedicated to Translational Research in Orthodontics, focuses on discovering new approaches and technological advances for treatment of skeletal deformities and different types of malocclusion. Dr. Alikhani’s research is funded by national and international foundations, and centers on skeletal form, tooth movement, and bone response to mechanical stimulation. His research has produced several patents such as a micro-osteoperforation device (Propel), a high frequency acceleration appliance (Vpro5), External plates, Robotic Orthodontics and many others. Dr. Alikhani specializes in complex orthodontic treatment for teens and adults. His clinical focus is to treat severe jaw and dental deformities in patients seeking non-surgical treatment options using advanced biological and mechanical concepts.
