Orthodontics Level 2 course combines theoretical & mandatory clinical training to enable you to develop the practical skills and knowledge you need to carry out contemporary orthodontic treatment techniques.
You will learn about the theory behind orthodontics through online learning and clinical demonstrative videos. There is a particular emphasis on current thinking relevant to the diagnosis, treatment planning and clinical management of patients.
Various Orthodontic Techniques will be demonstrated like:
2. Separator Placement
3. Bonding of brackets
4. Wire Placement
5. Retainer Selection
Theoretical Lectures include:
1. Biology of tooth movement
2. Secondary Bone Remodelling
3. Phases of tooth movement
4. Types of tooth movement
5. Biomechanics in Orthodontics
Educator: Dr. Ravneet Kaur (MDS: Orthodontics)
Facility: Gums n Braces Dental Clinic
Jacksons triad forms
the basis of orthodontic treatment. Let’s see the salient features of triad.
Biology Of Tooth Movement
Tooth movement induced by orthodontic treatment can cause sequential reactions involving the periodontal tissue and alveolar bone, resulting in the release of numerous substances from the dental tissues and surrounding structures.
This lecture will help the learner better understand the biological processes involved in orthodontic treatment, improve treatment, and reduce adverse side effects in patients.
Biology Of Tooth Movement - 10:19
Secondary Remodelling Changes
Orthodontics is based on the predictable remodeling of bone surrounding and supporting the teeth in response to stimuli generated or brought about by orthodontic appliances.
This lecture describes the secondary remodeling changes that facilitate orthodontic tooth movement
Secondary Remodelling Changes - 7:10
Phases Of Tooth Movement
Orthodontic tooth movement consists of three phases: the initial phase, the lag phase, and the post lag phase.
The initial phase is characterized by immediate and rapid movement and occurs 24 hours to 48 hours after the first application of force to the tooth.

Malocclusion In Orthodontics (Class I)
In this lecture we will discuss about how malocclusion is different than ideal occlusion. Also features of Class I malocclusion will be described.
Evolution of Appliance Systems
Evolution of Orthodontic appliances will be discussed in this lecture. Angle’s appliance system will be explained. Various appliance systems include:
1. Angle’s system
2. Begg’s appliance
4. Andrew’s Straight wireEvolution of Appliance System - 2:50
Bonded VS Banded Appliances
Banded appliances were used in yesteryears. Bonded appliances are used in modern orthodontics with the advent of adhesive systems. Banded and bonded appliances will be introduced in this lecture.Bonded VS Banded Appliances - 2:13

Drawbacks of Angle-s Classification
In this lecture I
will discuss about drawbacks of angle’s classification system
Stages of Orthodontic Treatment
In this lecture we will discuss about different stages of orthodontic treatment. The orthodontic treatment is a long treatment which has 3 stages:
1. Leveling & Alignment
2. Space closure
3. Finishing & DetailingStages of Orthodontic Treatment - 3:22
Materials and Parts of Fixed Orthodontic Appliance- Active
In this lecture I will discuss about materials and components of fixed orthodontic appliance which includes active & passive appliances.
Active components are:

- With partially erupted teeth which may be difficult to isolate
- When auxiliary appliances such as headgear, lingual arches or quad helices are required
- For teeth with large amalgam restorations
- A separating plier
- A separating module
- A mouth mirror
- A periodontal probe
Banding Instruments In Orthodontics
In modern orthodontic practice, it is possible to use bonded attachments on all teeth to be moved, however, there are some instances when the placement of bands on the molars or premolars is preferable to the use of bonded attachments, for example:
Orthodontic bands are made from stainless steel and are cemented in place with glass ionomer cements. Glass ionomer is the cement of choice due to its fluoride releasing properties.
First appointment: Placement of separators
During the first appointment, separators are placed in anticipation of bands in order to create space for the bands to be seated. They are placed through the interproximal contact of the tooth to be banded.
For this procedure you will need:
The procedure involves stretching the elastomeric separator and then placing it between the interproximal contact point so that half of the separator is below the contact point and the other half is above the contact point and visible occlusally.
In your notes for the patient, be sure to indicate how many separators were placed and their location. Also, be sure to inform the patient that they may have some discomfort in the days immediately following the placement of the separators; you may warn them that it may feel as though they have some popcorn stuck between their teeth.
Instruct the patient to avoid eating sticky foods and chewing gum.
The patient is seen one week later for band selection.Banding Instruments In Orthodontics - 6:10
