Rodrigo del Pozo, DDS, Ph.D.
With the absence of ligatures, the reduced amount of sliding friction made available by self-ligating brackets is especially important in cases of periodontal problems can lead to complications when high forces are applied. Dr. Rodrigo del Pozo demonstrates a case study where low continuous forces were recommended by the patient’s periodontist following a palatal graft. The result is a quality, functional occlusion and an attractive smile with no complications brought by the orthodontic forces to the bone.
