Hypothetically, with the use of FRD and TFBC in patients with normal maxillary and retrusive mandibular, it is possible to decrease the maxillary effect and increase the mandibular effect by increasing the maxillary dental anchorage using a miniscrew.
The appliances were modeled by measuring horizontal and vertical components of the FRD and TFBC using digital calipers (Figure 2, 3).
They were observed however in the posterior area of the mandibular condyle neck in the TFBC and screwed-TFBC models.
However, in the simulation of the TFBC appliance compared with the FRD appliance, the tensile stress (8.77 MPa) occurred in the anterior of condylar neck, and the compressive stress (-6.611 MPa) occurred in the posterior area.
They were observed however in the posterior area of the disc facing the condyle in TFBC and screwed-TFBC models.
However, in the simulations of the TFBC and screwed-TFBC appliances, compared with the FRD appliance, the tensile stress (TFBC: 1.256 MPa, screwed-TFBC: 1.230 MPa) occurred in the anterior area of the disc facing the condyle, and the compressive stress (TFBC: -1.184 MPa, screwed-TFBC: -1.239 MPa) occurred in the posterior area.
The areas in the FRD, screwed-FRD, TFBC, and screwed-TFBC models with the maximum principal stresses, which get high positive ratings, were observed in the palatinal area of the first upper molar.
We reached different conclusions in the models of TFBC and screwed-TFBC and we this difference is attributed to the appliance's more vertical components and consequently, to the application of more vertical force.
In all the models, the minimum principal stress (FRD: -2.025 MPa, screwed-FRD: -1.627 MPa, TFBC: -1.525 MPa, and screwed-TFBC: -1.074 MPa) in the buccal neck of the first upper molar is more active; hence, the compressive stress is observed in the buccal of the first upper molar teeth.
In all the models, the minimum principal stress (FRD: -1.594 MPa, screwed-FRD: -1.043 MPa, TFBC: -0.852MPa, screwed-TFBC: -0.570 MPa) in the distal neck of the first upper molar is more active and hence the compressive stress is observed in the distal of the first upper molar teeth.
