Tissue Mechanics

Hard (enamel, bone) and soft tissue (PDL, cartilage) mechanics is a field of fundamental importance for the understanding of the cascade of event accompanying the application of force on tooth crown. Complementary to mechanical testing (hardness, modulus), multitechnique characterization of the structure and composition of tissue provides an insight in the effect of stress [...]

Biomechanics

A number of studies examined the forces and moments developed during wire ligation with conventional and self-ligating brackets and force relaxation of polymeric elastics, employing custom-made configurations. These papers revealed that the direction of movement and number of teeth engaged in the arch, significantly affect the force applied to teeth with various wire-bracket combinations.   [...]

Orthodontic Biomaterials Network

“working jointly”
The ORTHODONTIC BIOMATERIALS NETWORK was initiated by T. Eliades in 2002 as a research network of Universities and Research Centers
