The paper describes devices which enable the orthodontist (oral surgeon) to accurately determine the forces produced by orthodontic wire or spring constructions. An apparatus was developed with which the force applied by bent wires--various materials and bending methods--could be assessed. This device uses strain gauges arranged in the form of a semi-bridge… CONTINUE READING
