Recent demand for esthetic brackets has led to the development and use of ceramic brackets in orthodontics. The purpose of this study was to compare the fracture strength of different ceramic brackets under different surface conditions and ligation methods using a torsional wire bending force. Five different bracket types (two polycrystalline, two(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of material and design on the force and stress required to permanently deform metal brackets. Fourteen types of metal brackets were categorized according to raw material composition, slot torque degree, and wing type. Five types of raw materials, three types of slot torque degree, and four types of wing(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM The use of implants for orthodontic anchorage can produce superior preprosthetic tooth positions. Their use often requires a crown or prosthesis to be fabricated for use as a connection between the orthodontic devices and the implant. PURPOSE In this article, factors that affect the design of prostheses required for orthodontic(More)
Oral respiration associated with an obstructed nasal airway is common in orthodontic patients. For several years chronic oral respiration has been implicated as a prime causative factor in the development of "adenoid facies or the "long-face syndrome. The animal experiment reported here begins a series designed to study, as separate variables, the 2(More)
The rotation of the maxillary molars is considered important in the orthodontic treatment of malocclusions. In this study, a computer analysis program was developed to examine the rotations of maxillary molars, mandibular molars, and maxillary first premolars in casts of permanent dentitions with acceptable occlusions. Ninety-three sets of untreated(More)
A series of novel substituted indole carbohydrazide was synthesized and evaluated for anti-platelet aggregation activity. The structures of the synthesized compounds were confirmed by spectral data and elemental analysis and were evaluated for their ability to inhibit platelet aggregation induced by adenosine diphosphate, arachidonic acid (AA) and collagen.(More)
