OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to investigate whether moderate-to-severe attrition is associated with maximum bite force in the first molar region. METHODOLOGY Maximum bite force in the first molar region was measured for a total of 60 subjects having moderate-to-severe attrition of occlusal surface (experimental group) using a specially-designed piezoelectric sensor based bite force measuring device. An equal number of age, gender, height and weight matched controls (control group… CONTINUE READING
