PURPOSE This study sought to establish the relationships between bone density, elastic modulus, and ultimate compressive strength of trabecular bone in the human mandible, and to determine the influence that the cortical plates have on these values. MATERIALS AND METHODS Nine fresh-frozen human mandibles between the ages of 56 and 90 years were cut into anterior (incisors and canine), middle (premolars), and distal (molars) sections. Seventy-six cylindrical trabecular bone specimens with bone… CONTINUE READING
