Accordingly, in order for bioprogessive clinician to apply the new technique with the intelligence, he must realize that many biologic factors form the fundamental criteria of its application.

The technique usually involves orthopedic correction, particularly in the maxilla, when such corrections are needed In order to position and control the teeth behind or away from cortical bone or against or away from muscle or to intrude into or extrude away from the bony alveolus, three-plane control is utilized.

Ironically, it can be applied in the very young and in the very old. We try to avoid leveling with round wires, for reasons that have been explained. It is difficult to appreciate these views and practices in the beginning because the method may be difficult to envision on the typodont or as simply a laboratory mechanical exercise due to the fact that cortical bone, growth, and muscle are not present in an artificial medium. In order to fully apply the recommendations of the proponents of this method, mechanical forecasting, physiologic forecasting, and growth forecasting principles are all employed.


Bioprogressive therapy as an answer to orthodontic needs. Part II.

Loops or forms are bent in the wire for lighter and more continuous pressures on teeth to be moved. Anchor teeth are stabilized against cortical bone; hence, cortical anchorage. A continuous bioprogressivd is broken up into segments so that movements in desired planes of space are not complicated and anchorage can be shifted in favor of the desired move.

Eight steps usually therspy the frame of reference. A limited use of round wire is employed with this technique except for specific isolated conditions in which there is a place for tipping or simple alignment and rotation of teeth.

Even as a simple mechanical regime, however, it rates with or better than any other current multibanded method as a practical and efficient clinical procedure. From the foregoing discussions, it may be recognized that a new, lighter, and sequential order of force applications is recommended.

We have attempted to examine these factors and place them in their appropriate hierarchy of significance. While edgewise was the background, sufficient departure from traditional edgewise therapy has been made to warrant a new label, “”bioprogressive therapy. Soldering of auxiliaries has been eliminated, as well as the heat treating of wires. Used as a triple-control technique, the bioprogressive method excels in proper overtreatment and for delivery of anchorage.
