The quantification of stress in the periodontal ligament is an important concept, as stress in this tissue is transmitted to the alveolus, with subsequent bone remodelling and tooth movement. A number of clinical studies have suggested figures for such an optimal stress range. This study makes use of a finite element technique to determine the stress induced in the periodontal ligament in three dimensions when a maxillary canine tooth is subjected to an orthodontic force similar to that… CONTINUE READING
