Paper Abstract

This work describes the use of a fiber Bragg grating sensor (FBG) to measure strains at a mandible surface caused by impact loads on a dental implant. The apparatus uses a tuneable optical filter reference scheme and is able to detect dynamic signals with frequency components up to 10 kHz. A dried cadaveric mandible with a dental implant, and a FBG placed on the outer surface was used. The results demonstrate the ability of the FBG as a biomechanical sensor.
