Paper Abstract

This study describes the evolution of a punctual method to determine the bite force. Now the fiber Bragg grating sensor is encapsulated in minimal material between uppers and lowers first molars, at the moment of occlusion, avoiding precontacts between the other teeth in a dentition model. The gypsum dentition castings were performed in semi-adjustable articulator in the occluded situation to maintain angulations of the occlusal plane of a volunteer. The sensor was characterized using loads from 0 to 90 N. Forces of about 0.0112 nm/N were found between right uppers and lowers first molars.
