Evaluation of the effect of different stretching patterns on force decay and tensile properties of elastomeric ligatures

Abstract

BACKGROUND There have been numerous researches on elastomeric ligatures, but clinical conditions in different stages of treatment are not exactly similar to laboratory conditions. The aim of this in vitro study was to simulate clinical conditions and evaluate the effect of three stretching patterns on the amount of force, tensile strength (TS) and extension… (More)
