In orthodontics we need to have the knowledge to make an individualized diagnosis for every single patient, so that it is possible to recognize individualized objectives for each one to place the denture in the position that can ensure a physiological function, with the best aesthetic and the long term stability.
The Directional Force System, taught at the Tweed Foundation in Tucson, gives us guidelines for differential individualized diagnosis and strategy of treatment and also orthodontic mechanics perfectly consistent with the individualized objectives for each single patient.
