Abstract
The objective of this study is to propose a new method to monitor the response of the periodontal ligament (PDL) to loading to understand its mechanical and physical properties. Fiber optic sensors are used to monitor internal strain (με) in the PDL in a pig mandible simulating longitudinal forces applied on the tooth. This consists therefore of an in vitro study. Results show that the sensor is sensitive to investigate external loading and unloading in the PDL. The results can help the study of PDL properties.
