The main purpose of this study was creating a finite element model with bio-realistic geometry of ligaments in the cervical spine region. A ligamentous finite element model was created that allows the study of the stress distribution on ligaments under six different moments: flexion, extension,...
The Effect of Conventional Elastomers on Force and Moment of a Self-Ligating Orthodontic Bracket with Second-Order Angulation in the Dry and Wet States evaluated through a new 3D Friction DeviceDownload
Objective: A new three-dimensional friction device was used to investigate the effect of conventional elastomers on force and moment of a self-ligating orthodontic bracket with second-order angulation during a simulated retraction. Methods: An 0.018x0.025-in stainless steel archwire was drawn...
