In vivo measurement of the mobility of teeth under physiological loading has been subject of research for years. Comparing the deflection under load of dental implants with teeth provides valuable input for designing restorations spanning both teeth and implants. Physiological force rise time of about 50-100 ms and displacement of 10-100 μm requires high spatial and temporal resolution of the measurement set-up. Using an optical system attached to the teeth/implants to be measured and a light… CONTINUE READING
