How to do rack and pinion single tooth analysis??

I've to do analysis of a single teeth of both rack and pinion. I want to check whether it'll take the exact load or not.I want to give load not on the surface but on the center of the surface which I'm not able to give in ANSYS, I want to know what boundary conditions should give.
I've seen tutorials in youtube but no one uploaded single tooth analysis.

Teeth Patameters: Both teeths are module 5, face width 50mm, pressure angle is 20 degree , material is MS.
Also see the attached photo
How to do that in ANSYS or in SolidWorks or in Nastran-Patran.
Thanks on advance
