TNO Bouw Publication year 1998 Abstract The aim of orthodontic treatment is the displacement of teeth by means ofspecial appliances, like braces and brackets. Through these appliances the orthodontist can apply a set of forces to the teeth which wilt result in its displacement through the jawbone. Finite Element analysis of this process enables to comprehend the influence of the applied forces and its transmission to the surrounding tissues. Using appropriate material models enlarges the success of the analysis. As a first step to elucidate the effects of orthodontic treatment, our objective is to find such an appropriate material model for the biologica! tissues invo/ved. Therefore, we performed a series of experiments and analyzed theet within a framework of Finite Element models Subject Architecture and Building To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:5c447f0f-8621-4e60-b88f-5b122ec9e6a6 TNO identifier 329299 Source Diana World (2), 5-7 Document type article Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
