Sibos Presentation

The Italian Society of Biomechanics and Segmented Orthodontics (SIBOS) strives to promote the study and clinical application of biomechanics in orthodontics since 1989.
The scientific basis of orthodontics rests on a knowledge of anatomy, physiology, growth and in particular biomechanics, that studies the relationship between force systems and dental or orthopedic correction. The knowledge of biomechanics is necessary to control tooth movement, and the application of the correct force system is relevant to the correct selection of any orthodontic appliance such as sliding mechanics, intermaxillary elastics, functional appliances or aligners. The emphasis is on principles rather than techniques, with a language that universally describes how an appliance works and is to be used.
This approach allows to achieve any kind of tooth movements with ideal forces, even the most complex ones.
SIBOS organizes theoretical classes, practical workshops together with an annual meeting where participants can delve into more advanced topics.
