The objective of this study on surgically assisted rapid maxillary expansion (RME) was to examine the extent of stress reduction in the midface and the cranial base with various surgical procedures. Four finite element models of the skull were generated (one without and three with different surgical incisions), in which a virtual RME (5 mm gap width) was(More)
INTRODUCTION Since many simulation and animation procedures for mimicry are based on averaged values and do not take into account an individual's situation, the goal of this study was to investigate the intra- and inter-individual variability of conscious smiling. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-three surface points were marked on the faces of 31 adult test(More)
OBJECTIVES Loosening and loss rates of monocortical mini-implants are relatively high, therefore the following null hypothesis was tested: 'The local bone stress in mono and bicortically-anchored mini-implants is identical'. MATERIAL AND METHODS Anisotropic Finite Element Method (FEM) models of the mandibular bone, including teeth, periodontal ligaments,(More)
