Abstract
A technique was developed for measuring tooth displacements, caused by extraoral orthodontic forces. By using speckle-interferometry as measurement technique and a macerated dry human skull as test object, a reliable investigation procedure is developed. Resolution of total displacement into vector components is realized by simple trigonometry. These observations showed to be very interesting for the understanding of the biomechanics of clinical headgear forces. For the purpose of orthodontic research speckle interferometry was applied and is expected to be a promising technique.
