PURPOSE The aim of this study was to measure vertical masticatory forces in vivo using a method that should be insensitive to the location of bite force impact. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two exchangeable implant abutments were equipped with strain gauges. In nine patients, the abutments were attached to implants supporting three-unit fixed partial dentures (FPD) in one mandibular chewing center. The signals of the two abutments were summed to give a force reading that was independent of the… Expand
