PURPOSE Similarities in strain patterns between long bones and the mandible suggest that plates may induce stress shielding, resulting in deleterious long-term changes. This study is an investigation of the use of bone plates on the mandible in four adult rhesus monkeys. MATERIAL AND METHODS A stainless steel plate was attached facially along the inferior border of each mandibular corpus. On the left, a thick (2.5-mm) plate was engaged with four screws. On the right, a thin (0.5-mm) plate was… CONTINUE READING
