Force-Degradation Pattern of Six Different Orthodontic Elastomeric Chains


OBJECTIVE An ideal orthodontic force system should exert continuous light force. Thus, many efforts have been made to improve the memory characteristics of elastomeric chains. The aim of this study was to compare elastomeric chains (ECs) claimed by their manufacturers to offer high memory with traditional ones according to their force-extension diagrams… (More)
