The design and testing of an orthodontic torque simulator that reproduces the effect of archwire rotation on orthodontic brackets is described. This unique device is capable of simultaneously measuring the deformation and loads applied to an orthodontic bracket due to archwire rotation. Archwire...
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...
Archwire rotation is used in orthodontic treatment to alter the labiolingual orientation of a tooth. Measurement of the 3-dimensional (3D) motion of the orthodontic brackets requires a new configuration of the orthodontic torque simulator. The orthodontic torque simulator was coupled with a...
