We measured bite force
using a piezo resistive force sensor (Flexiforce A 201-100, Tekscan, Inc., Boston), with a sensitivity range of 0-100 pounds.
A bite force
transducer that consists of an electronic strain gauge with a digital indicator which was resistant to deformation was used in the present study.
and maxillofacial morphology in patients with Duchenne-type muscular dystrophy.
It is observed that the force range of most available gnathodynamometers is quite small--usually less than 200 N--whereas the maximum bite force
in human beings can be up to 1200 N.
From the standpoint of tackle selection, it's a good thing kingfish don't carry a heavy bite force
, because their teeth alone can be trouble enough.
Adjusted for body size, its bite force
edges out the black piranha as the strongest known for a bony fish.
Although larger size sharks will exert higher values of bite force
, the relative value of bite force
is what matters, pound per pound how strong is the bite?," she said.
In adults, it has been reported that cervical muscles play a role in the exertion of bite force
. Lower activity of these muscles has been associated with smaller occlusal contact area, (9) suggesting an indirect association between craniofacial dimension and occlusal contact area.
In addition, it has been clinically demonstrated to provide greater stability and bite force
, which allows denture wearers to eat food items that they otherwise would have to avoid.
Super Pollglip is also clinically proven to improve stability, retention and bite force
, allowing denture wearers to eat foods they otherwise would have avoided.
Gary Mountain, senior child health lecturer and deputy head of the university's School of Healthcare, collaborated with Leeds Dental Institute to design an instrument to accurately test the bite force
of young children.
