This study used finite element (FE) analysis to investigate the stability of miniscrews (screws) placed at the median palate. FE models with variable suture maturity and screw-suture distances were used to examine the relationship with screw stability. Four groups were classified by extent of maturation of the midpalatal suture (0%, 60%, 75%, and 100%). The placement position was set at the center of the suture (0.0 mm), or 0.5, 1.0, and 1.5 mm to the side of the suture, and von Mises stressdoi:10.2334/josnusd.19-0088 pmid:32581179 fatcat:f3sgzy6qbzhplo6jhzoodxbakq
