Abstract

This study demonstrates a model that can be used to investigate the biomechanics of various craniofacial plating systems in cadaveric heads. It investigates the strain pattern at predetermined sites in the maxillae under static loads similar in magnitude to those that occur during mastication (chewing) in several embalmed heads. Aside from the possibility of assessing the strains at specific points, the model can also be used to compare the rigidity provided by various designs of craniofacial plates.
