This analysis was aimed at the development of a usable mathematical relation between arbitrary 3-dimensional loading and elastic or initial displacement of a tooth, dependent on the most essential parameters of the tooth-jaw structure. Such a relation is important for structural analyses of orthodontic appliances and dental implants, since their mechanical behaviour depends on the characteristics of the elastic support. A 3-dimensional mathematical model, based on finite element methods, was developed
