The pattern of axially directed occlusal forces, i.e. magnitude, distribution, duration and frequency of occlusal forces perpendicular to the occlusal plane, was studied during chewing, swallowing and biting in twelve subjects whose dentitions were periodontally treated and prosthetically restored with fixed, cross-arch bridges whose periodontal support included bilateral end abutments. The measuring devices consisted of four strain gauge transducers bilaterally mounted into pontics of… CONTINUE READING
