dc.description.abstractCAD/CAM technology was used to develop an optimised typodont system, which allows three-dimensional simulation and quantification of orthodontic tooth movements. The system was then used to quantify movements associated with a number of orthodontic archwire reshaping activations (tapering, squaring, expanding, asymmetrical, and reversing the curve of Spee). The optimised typodont system was successfully developed and could reliably be used to quantify tooth movements in 3D. Reshaping of the archwire have implications in all three dimensions which should be taken into account when planning tooth movements.
