‘V’ principle

    • Appliances are being refined and will continue to improve with the passage of time. This is good, but the danger lies with the individual who fails to recognize that the refinement of appliances may reduce the physical effort put forth in treatment, but will not eliminate the need for the orthodontist to think, understand, and apply basic principles of mechanics in a common sense manner. It only points out the fact that orthodontists cannot escape the need to understand the appliance of choice and the various force systems which will enter the treatment picture, either as our “friends” or as our “enemies”.
