Özet

Objective: This study aimed to examine the biomechanical effects of the fixed functional appliances reinforced with miniscrews by finite elements analysis over the cranial and facial bones, temporomandibular joint, and maxillary-mandibular teeth, which are used for the treatment of Class II division 1 malocclusions characterized as mandibular retrognathia.
