Learning outcomes

The aim of the Orthodontics’teaching is the acquisition by the student of the ability to:

- Know the principles of growth and development of the stomatognathic system.

- Recognize and distinguish between the eugnatic and disgnatic clinical aspects.

- Diagnose and classify the different occlusal clinical aspects, acquiring knowledge about the relatives therapeutic implications , both in young patients and in adults .

- Recognize the most complex cases to be referred to the Specialist in Orthodontics , as well as generic skills of the Dentist .

The course aims to provide:
• the foundations of the experimental method, which is the basis of modern science and technology disciplines
• basic knowledge (physical quantities and physical laws) of mechanical phenomena, with examples and bioscience applications(biomechanics).
At the end of the course students will apply their knowledge to solve physics problems.


1) Orthodontic treatment: development of the objectives.

2) The need and demand for orthodontic treatment.

3) Orthodontic problems: possibilities, options and objectives of orthodontic treatment.

4) Proffit range of discrepancies.

5) Craniofacial embryology.

6) Mechanisms and principles of ossification.

7) Growth and development of the alveolar-dental processes and support structures.

8) Growth and development of the jaw and TMJ.

9) Theory of the Functional Matrix by Moss.

10) Chronology of dental development.

11) Fundamentals of normocclusion in deciduous, mixed and permanent dentition.

12) Classification of malocclusions: Angle system and Simon system.

18) Types of orthodontic movement: toruqe, uprighting, tipping, translation, rotation, extrusion and intrusion.

19) Concept of anchorage.

20) The teleradiography.

21) Cephalometry: analysis of the craniofacial skeleton.

22) Evaluation of the degree of bone maturation: growth rates.

23) Orthodontic documentation: X-rays, photographs, dental casts (construction and study) and medical records.

24) The first visit.

25) The second visit and the treatment plan.

26) Multiattack corrective appliances: buccal, lingual, uninformed, informed and self-ligating.

27) Physical and chemical characteristics of orthodontic wires.

28) Removable corrective orthopedic-functional appliances.

29) Corrective orthopedic devices.

Examination Methods

Oral examination

Written exam consisting in simple problem solving. After passing the written test an oral examination will assess the understanding of the main concepts and examine the development of the written test.
