The hypothesis that mandibular bone-strain patterns are a good indicator of molar bite-force patterns in M. fascicularis during mastication was tested by determining the relationship between mandibular bone-strain patterns and bite-force patterns during isometric biting. Bone-strain patterns were determined using rosette strain gauges bonded to mandibular cortical bone below the roots of the M2 during isometric binding on a transducer along the M1-M2 region. The effects of rosette position on… CONTINUE READING
