Dear All,

I am a student of biomechanics and I am currently working on experimental
evaluation of stress distributed around dental implants. I'd like to measure
strain on interface layer between bone and implant in vivo. Unfortunately I
don't have any idea, how to do it - what kind of strain gauge (it should be
able to measure after long period in live organism), how to glue strain g. to
the bone, what about wires etc. So I'm looking for someone, who has experiences
with such experiment and who will be so good to help me.
Thank you for any ideas.
