Regional variations in the viscoelastic compressive properties of the temporomandibular joint disc and implications toward tissue engineering.

Abstract

Evidence from experimental and finite element studies have shown that the temporomandibular joint disc is heavily loaded during normal physiological function. Several studies have been carried out to investigate the response of the disc to tensile and static compressive forces. However, there is limited information that elucidates the dynamic… (More)
