Human tooth movement in response to continuous stress of low magnitude.

Abstract

Conventional orthodontic therapy often uses force magnitudes in excess of 100 g to retract canine teeth. Typically, this results in a lag phase of approximately 21 days before tooth movement occurs. The current project was undertaken to demonstrate that by using lower force magnitudes, tooth translation can start without a lag phase and can occur at… (More)
