In order to evaluate interdental forces as a benchmark for mesial drift, a measurement technique was tested and evaluated on a human specimen. The measurement technique is based on the principle that a mesially directed horizontal force (FH) within a complete dental arch has an effect on interdental friction at the points of contact. The dynamic force (Fz),(More)
INTRODUCTION Chronic pain in children and adolescents has a major impact on their life in terms of school, sleep as well as family and social life. Teenagers aged 13-15 and girls are at the highest risk. Zeltzer et al. established a bio-psychosocial model of chronic pain in 1998 to account for all its dimensions and advocated a multidisciplinary management(More)
With the aim of checking the progress of mesially directed forces in a complete dental arch, we measured the interdental frictional forces in a population of 44 patients with erupting maxillary and mandibular third molars. The measurements were taken preoperatively and postoperatively 1, 2, 3, 7, and 12 weeks and also 1 year after extraction of surgical(More)
