  • Re: Biomechanics of Teeth

    This is not that tough:

    The dental literature is replete with biomechanic material. My
    first question is do you mean just teeth, or do you mean the oral region
    (jaws, teeth, etc)

    For starters a good standard text is:
    Biomechanics in Clinical Dentistry
    Caputo, Angelo A
    Quintessence, 1987

    A search of Medline for the last year and a half gave me 200 plus
    hits. If you are searching for biomechanics and ONLY teeth:

    Explode Dentition and Explode Biomechanics then link them
    together with an "and".

    If the whole oral shooting match is what you need:

    Explode Stomatognathic System and Explode Biomechanics and repeat
    as above.

    Your friendly neighbourhood librarian should be able to help.
