Despite widely accepted classical mechanical theory of buttresses as a load bearing areas in the midfacial skeleton, the data related to its microstructural adaptation on functional demands are scarce. In this study we investigated microstructural features of the different regions in the facial bones in relation to the occlusal load dissipation using a combination of finite element analysis (FEA) and micro-CT analysis (╬╝CT). The FEA was performed on the model of the dry h...
