The force system generated by a simple V bend in a straight wire was studied by means of the principles for small deflection of a beam and a model developed for the description of the forces and moments. The relationship between the size of the bend and the interbracket position on the force system developed is analyzed and discussed in relation to clinical problems. The parallel between positioning of a V bend and the "geometries" developed between a straight wire and angulated brackets is… CONTINUE READING
