Human Bite Forces
With the biteFork system you can determine human bite force in absolute values and analyze force characteristics.
The range of human bite forces is very broad and differs due to gender and age. The bite force can be surprisingly high despite missing or loose teeth, and can be low despite a complete dental arch and perfect teeth.
The “normal” range of human bite forces can be assumed to range from 200 to 700 Newton ( 45 to 160 lbs), depending on the region and the way it was measured.
