Three-dimensional finite element analyses were carried out on idealisations of two situations where bone remodelling has been reported clinically viz. the malaligned femur and a maxillary central incisor under orthodontic loading. The mechanical responses, i.e. stress, strain and change of curvature, in various directions, are presented. They are compared… CONTINUE READING
