Abstract

This work presents a new device, developed and constructed for the determination of the masticatory forces. Our new apparatus worked well in measuring maximal bite force and masticatory efficiency of incisor and molar teeth, respectively. The obtained results related to intraoral forces were very similar to the values previously given in the literature.
