Finite Element Simulation of the Human Mandible: The Influence of the PDL on its Structural Behaviour
Kober, Cornelia/Stübinger, Stefan/Erdmann, Bodo/Hellmich, Christian/Radtke, Thomas/Sader, Robert/Zeilhofer, Hans-Florian
Being part of a detailed research project concerning the structural behaviour of a human mandible this paper concerns the influence of the periodontal ligament (PDL) on the structural behaviour of the entire mandible. In the field of implant dentistry, the simulation results provide a comparison of the physiological situation (natural teeth) and the changes due to dental implants.

Keywords: human mandible, biomechanics, finite element simulation, periodontal ligament, adaptation of bone
