The role of the fluid phase in the viscous response of bovine periodontal ligament

The mechanical response of the periodontal ligament (PDL) is complex. This tissue responds as a hyperelastic solid when pulled in tension while demonstrating a viscous behavior under compression. This intricacy is reflected in the tissue's morphology, which comprises fibers, glycosaminoglycans, a jagged interface with the surrounding porous bone and an extensive vascular network.
