The bioprogressive technique is a complete system to resolve orthodontic problems. With some logical steps, we can go from the
diagnosis of malocclusion to the treatment’s objectives, and finally to a mechanical sequence of treatment, individual to each patient.
Although the straight wire is the most simple and effective method to finish cases, its poor mechanical possibilities limit its
effects in initial phases of critical malocclusion. Among these several problems, the bioprogressive technique has the best results,
being especially indicated in cases with: 1. Grave osseous-dental discrepancies, without extractions. 2. Grave overbite. 3. Grave
Class II. 4. Cases with extractions, where a precise control of anchorage is required. 5. Use of fixed appliance with others, at
the same time. 6. Difficult mechanics. 7. TMJ’s malfunction.
