The aim of the present study is to evaluate the behavior of artificial teeth which support a porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) prosthetic reconstruction to mimic in vitro the movements of natural teeth under different simulated implantation degrees. A Frasaco typodont was used to this purpose and two different degrees of implantation were simulated. Non-contact vibration measurements of the samples were made using a laser Doppler vibrometer (LDV), and a continuous analogue voltage output of the LDV data was included in the studyKeywords:
- in vitro periodontal model.
- vibration measurements
