The effects of mandibular distraction on the mandible and its surrounding tissue remain to be clarified. Here, we used a 3-dimensional finite-element method to investigate the effects of unilateral horizontal lengthening of the mandibular body and vertical lengthening of the mandibular ramus on the mandible and temporomandibular joint (TMJ). With horizontal(More)
The present study investigated the effects of two orthodontic appliances on changes in the cephalometric reference planes using the three-dimensional finite element method. We simulated the use of a headgear and an orthopedic facial mask, two devices for the application of orthodontic force to the jaw. Using a finite element model of the skull, orthodontic(More)
