Figure 5

Root displacement and Von-Mises stress for each bracket position. Root displacement and Von-Mises stress for each bracket position ranging from (A to J) 1.5 to 6 mm from the cusp tip. The displacement and stress are measured along 12 points on the root from the CEJ to the apex. The red and blue lines pertain to root displacement and Von-Mises stress respectively.
