Limited published research on friction deals mainly with conventional stainless steel brackets and arch wires. However, the clinician can choose from a range of modern materials in determining arch wire and bracket combinations. This study quantifies the dynamic frictional force of sliding between different modern orthodontic brackets and arch wires. From the multitude of factors involved in the frictional process, the following were selected for investigation: arch wire material, bracket… CONTINUE READING
