    Author(s): Muthanna Ibraheem Ali, Iman I Al Sheakli* and Salah R Al Zaidee

    Canines are important and unique teeth for both esthetic and function. It is the most tooth that erupt in malposed position. The buccaly malposed canine is one of the most common condition in orthodontic practice. The aim of this study is to evaluate the response of canine and maxillary teeth to different magnitudes and directions of orthodontic force. The finite element method were used in current work. DICOM data processed by image processing software (Mimics Medical 2018), for generation of 3D volume that managed by computer aided design software (SolidWorks software), for reconstruction 3D model and to align all parts in final assembly. The model exported to finite element analysis software (Abaqus CAE software) and apply two load scenarios. Load scenario I include tipping force extend between canine and first molar, Load scenario II include extrusion force extend between canine a.. Read More»
