Scalers &vectors • Force (F=MA)_force is that which changes or tends to change the state of rest of a body or of uniform motion along a st line Force acts in three dimensions of space www.indiandentalacademy.com


Resultants of orthodontic force Forces with common point of application

www.indiandentalacademy.com


Forces with different points of application Law of transmissibility of forces =external effect of force on a rigid body may be considered to have a point of application anywhere along its line of action

Resolving a force in to components

Force & movement

• Center of gravity ~A point on which a free body can be perfectly balanced (C of mass) • Center of resistance~A point through which the line of action of force passes, producing translation www.indiandentalacademy.com


Determinants of center of resistance • • • • • • •

Size &shape of the crown & root\roots periodontal attachment level &density of alveolar bone multirooted 1~2mm apical tofurcation 50% of root Proffit & Nikolai 50~33% Smith & Burstone 25~33% Nanda www.indiandentalacademy.com


Types of tooth movement • Translation-pure bodily movement • Pure rotation-It indicates movement of points of the tooth along the arc of a circle with cent of resist as cent of circle • Combination www.indiandentalacademy.com


Translation • If the line of action of an applied force passes through the center of resistance of a tooth it responds by translation in the direction of line of action

www.indiandentalacademy.com


Moment of a force • Moment (potential for rotation) = magnitude of force * perpendicular distance from line of action to point of resistance

www.indiandentalacademy.com


Direction of moment (positive &negative )

Combined translation & rotation

www.indiandentalacademy.com


Rotations / Couples Couple consists of two forces of equal magnitude , with parallel but noncolinear lines of action & opposite senses

Moment of couple = magnitude of forces * www.indiandentalacademy.com

dist between them


AntiCl wise~10*50=500 gm mm Cl wise ~30*50 =1500gm mm Net ~1500-500 =1000 gm mm Force *dist ~50*20 =1000gm mm Couple is a “free vector” www.indiandentalacademy.com


Recap • Force ~

physical entity applied to an . . object • Moment ~turning tendency of force (pt of . reference ) • Couple ~inherent moment not relative to . any point www.indiandentalacademy.com


Center of rotation • Center of rotation # a point about which a body appears to have rotated

www.indiandentalacademy.com


Center of rotation &tooth movement

www.indiandentalacademy.com


• Hurd & Nikoli ~Point which moves the least on the line of long axis of tooth • Hocevar ~geometric point about which no moment has occurred

www.indiandentalacademy.com


Force system &center of rotation • Only net force translation (infinity ) • net moment only rotation (cent of resist ) • moment &force ( ? )

www.indiandentalacademy.com


Equivalent force systems • Sums of forces in x direction are identical • Sum of forces in y direction are identical • sum of moment about any point are identical

Moment about any point
