BACKGROUND Simulation of periodontal ligament (PDL) using non-linear finite element method (FEM) analysis gives better insight into understanding of the biology of tooth movement. The stresses in the PDL were evaluated for intrusion and lingual root torque using non-linear properties. MATERIALS AND METHODS A three-dimensional (3D) FEM model of the(More)
A high incidence of dental disease has been reported in Nepal. Previous studies, both in the Manipal Teaching Hospital, Pokhara, Nepal, and other centers revealed problems in the use of medicines in dentistry. A number of initiatives to improve prescribing have been carried out. The study presented here was undertaken to assess the impact of these(More)
Mandibular incisor extraction therapy has been used as a treatment option since the early 1900s to relieve tooth size-arch length discrepancies in the anterior segment of the mandible. The advantages of this therapy include potential reduction in treatment time, possibility of achieving better long-term stability in the mandibular anterior segment since(More)
BACKGROUND Orthodontic tooth movement is a complex procedure that occurs due to various biomechanical changes in the periodontium. Optimal orthodontic forces yield maximum tooth movement whereas if the forces fall beyond the optimal threshold it can cause deleterious effects. Among various types of tooth movements intrusion and lingual root torque are(More)
INTRODUCTION With increasing use of Indian made orthodontic materials, need was felt to know nickel and chromium release from these material. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was conducted on simulated appliances consisting of brackets (022″Roth, Modern orthodontics, Ludhiana, India), from second premolar to central incisor, buccal tube and 0.019×0.025-(More)
BACKGROUND The most vulnerable tooth is the maxillary incisor, which sustains 80% of dental injuries. Dynamic Finite element analysis is used to understand the biomechanics of fracture of maxillary incisor under traumatic impact loading. AIM The aim was to investigate the stress patterns of an upper incisor in a three-dimensional (3D) model under(More)
