Paper Abstract

In this work it is reported the measurement of the differential strain between the dental and bone tissues under effect of an applied load. Slices of swine mandible, containing the premolar tooth, are cut and measured in fresh condition. The strain is measured using fibre Bragg grating sensors glued to both tissues. In the measured range the results show a linear behaviour and confirm the importance of the periodontal ligament in the load transfer mechanism.
