Abstract

Introduction: A novel approach to characterizing orthodontic spring-generated force and moment systems has been developed. This method allows simultaneous measurement of all 6 force and moment components acting on a tooth. Methods: A continuous full archwire space-closure technique was simulated, and the complete force and moment systems acting on the teeth adjacent to the extraction space were measured. Results and Conclusions: The data showed that, in addition to the intended forces and moments, there are nontrivial activation-dependent interactions with the other load components, and these complex relationships are affected by the position of the triangular loop.
