Dear friends,

I would be grateful if you could send me refrences and thoughts about leveling of curve of Spee: what are the reasons why we should flatten it? how can we do it? what are the differences between continuous or sectionnal mechanics for leveling curve of Spee? i have a course to give about it; leveling curve of Spee: sectional versus continuous mechanics. I already have some references but your help would be appreciated especially concerning the reasons why curve of spee should be flattened. Thank you for your kind help.

Dear ESCO,

Recently there was an article written be Dr. Redmond on OrthoCad bracket placement solutions. Has anybody compare cases done by OrthoCad bracket placement to conventional placement. By this I mean direct OrthoCad placement to direct placement or indirect OrthoCad placement to indirect placement. I would hope the comparison would be in the number of bends in the wire or repositioning of the brackets. Does anybody has 50 cases of OrthoCad placement of braces completed? What are your observations subjectively? Weathering Two Hurricanes at Once,
