Loop mechanics is a determinate force system if used in the right way. Understanding the mechanics is of prime importance while dealing with loop mechanics. The moment to force ratio determines the type of movement. To move teeth in a predictable manner, a thorough control on moment to force ratio is necessary. This can be done with the help of closing loops. A thorough understanding of the M/F ratio is required for the correct clinical application of the loops.

Keywords: Loop mechanics, Frictionless mechanics, Biomechanics of loops
