The aim of this study is to estimate strains in the restored macerate edentulous mandible bone by using the ARAMIS three-dimensional image correlation system. The system uses two digital cameras that provide a synchronized stereo view of the specimen and the results show the complete strain field during the tests. The highest strain (5%) was detected within mandible-denture contact, mental foramen (8%) and trigonum retromolar (15%). The strain is the consequence of the complete denture vertical displacement.
