Mechanical response of periodontal ligament: Effects of specimen geometry, preconditioning cycles and time lapse

This study was conducted as part of research line addressing the mechanical response of periodontal ligament (PDL) to tensile-compressive sinusoidal loading The aim of the present project was to determine the effect of three potential sources of variability. (1) specimen geometry, (2) tissue preconditioning and (3) tissue structural degradation over time. For the three conditions, selected mechanical parameters were evaluated and compared
