Abstract
The aim of the study is to demonstrate the potential of the fibre Braggs grating (FBG) in the measurement of different jaw movements that are performed for patients with occlusal parafunction using occlusal splints. Two silicon plates each 2mm are used, the fibre optic sensor is positioned in the maxillary left first molar region above the point of contact with opposing tooth after pressing the first plate on the model. Then the second silicon plate is pressed. The device has a final thickness of 2 mm. The occlusal splint is installed in the mouth of the patient who underwent different movements on occlusal splint. The maximum frequency bite is monitored. The results demonstrate that the bite shows a difference between grinding and clenching movements. The curves behaviour patterns are presented in order to show these different comparisons. Therefore, it is concluded that the fibre Braggs grating consists in an efficient method for monitoring the mechanical behaviour bite of patients with occlusal splints.
