Abstract
The aim of the study is to develop a new punctual method to determine the human bite force, between uppers and lowers first molars, at the moment of occlusion in maximum intercuspation. Fibre optic Bragg gratings are encapsulated in an acetate splint made by casting of a volunteer lower dentition. Splint sensor was positioned into the mouth to be pressured with minimal occlusal interference. The transversal pressure on the FBG was acquired at the moment of before occlusion (free), occlusion and biting. The measured forces were 12N during occlusion and 28N bite force, between right uppers and lowers first molars.
