Comparison of slot deformation in stainless steel and ceramic brackets during torque-A finite element analysis

Abstract

Introduction: Torque in orthodontics is vital in final positioning of the teeth during fixed appliance therapy. Torqueing of archwires is a significant factor in transferring the applied forces to the bracket which might cause deformation of the slot. Any deformation in the bracket slot can vary the torque prescription and thus can affect the tooth position… (More)
