To better understand the biomechanics of orthodontic tooth movement,beginners are typically trained with wire bending exercises using the waxtypodont system to visualize quick tooth movement. However, conventionalwax typodont systems do not reflect realistic tooth movement whencompared to a real patient. This is so because the heat softens the wax firstbefore the teeth can move in the softened wax.The Electronic Typodont system generates heat only to the roots oftypodont teeth first by electric current via connected wires thus melting thewax just around the roots. More precise tooth movement can thus besimulated when compared to conventional wax typodont systems. This resultcan be attained as the root is first heated by electric current via connectedwires thereby melting the hard sticky wax just around the metal root.
