BACKGROUND Orthodontic tooth movements are based on the ability of bone reaction to mechanical stimulus with the deposition and resorption of alveolar bone. The numerical simulation of tooth movement could be helpful for the treatment strategy. However, at present, few calculations have been carried out on the tooth movement simulation. METHODS Finite element (FE) models were developed to simulate an orthodontic treatment of mandibular canine tipping movement during a therapy period with… CONTINUE READING
