    Keywords : chewing; head; human; jaw; mandible; motor control; movement; neck; temporomandibular disorders; whiplash injury; odontologi; Odontology; Chewing; Head; Human; Jaw; Mandible; Motor Control; Movement; Neck; Temporomandibular Disorders; Whiplash Injury;

    Abstract : Previous studies in animals and humans show anatomic and physiological connections between the trigeminal and cervical regions. This investigation tested the hypothesis of a functional integration between the human jaw and neck motor systems in rhythmic jaw activities. READ MORE

  2. 2. Masticatory retraining effect on masseter muscle, facial morphology and alveolar bone structure in the adult rat

    Author : Anna Ödman; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adult; rat; craniofacial morphology; alveolar trabecular bone; MYH; mandible; masticatory function;

    Abstract : The aim of this series of investigations was to study the effect of masticatory muscle retraining in adult rats with an earlier reduced masticatory muscle function on the craniofacial morphology, on the internal alveolar bone structure and on the deep masseter muscle. Material and Methods: Sixty young male rats received soft diet for a prolonged period, so that the animals developed weak masticatory muscles. READ MORE

  3. 3. Factors affecting neurosensory disturbances after mandibular osteotomies. Clinical and experimental studies

    Abstract : Sensibilitetsnedsättning är en vanlig komplikation till kirurgisk korrigering av käkställningsfel i mandibeln speciellt vid användande av sagittal split teknik. Med denna teknik är risken för skada av n. READ MORE

  4. 4. Conventional spiral and low-dose computed mandibular tomography for dental implant planning

    Author : Annika Ekestubbe; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []

    Abstract : Absorbed doses to radiosensitive organs in the head and neck from pre-implant conventional hypocycloidal, conventional spiral and computed tomography (CT) were measured with thermoluminescent dosimeters in an anthropomorphic phantom head. From conventional tomography organ doses, except to the major salivary glands, were below 0.2 mGy. READ MORE

  5. 5. Fixed mandibular retainers : a controlled 12-year follow-up

    Author : Ulrike Schütz-Fransson; Malmö universitet; []

    Abstract : Fixed retainer after orthodontic treatment is an increasing retention appliance. For the mandibular incisors there are two different fixed retainers that are commonly used, either a canine-to-canine retainer bonded only to the canines or a twistflex retainer bonded to each of the mandibular incisors and canines.
