Abstract

The impact of bite force on the marginal bone response around implants is a subject of debate. The measurement of these forces in vivo may provide us some guidance towards the long term outcome of oral implants. A novel design of a device for bite force measurements in a porcine model is described. A single polyethylene sheet was vacuum formed into a splint, and a force sensor fitted on to the splint occlusal surface and seated in with a silicon layer. This design enabled measurement of bite forces (range 200-520N) on selected teeth in a large animal model with natural dentition and single implant crowns. The technical design and force preliminary recordings are discussed.
