Inclusion of periodontal ligament fibres in mandibular finite element models leads to an increase in alveolar bone strains (2017)
Journal Article
McCormack, S. W., Witzel, U., Watson, P. J., Fagan, M. J., & Gröning, F. (2017). Inclusion of periodontal ligament fibres in mandibular finite element models leads to an increase in alveolar bone strains. PloS one, 12(11), e0188707. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0188707

Alveolar bone remodelling is vital for the success of dental implants and orthodontic treatments. However, the underlying biomechanical mechanisms, in particular the function of the periodontal ligament (PDL) in bone loading and remodelling, are not... Read More
