  1. 1. Neck function in rhythmic jaw activities

    University dissertation from Klinisk oral fysiologi, Umeå Universitet

    Author : Birgitta Häggman-Henrikson; Högskolan i Gävle.; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    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. Radiography of the mandible prior to endosseous implant treatment. Localization of the mandibular canal and assessment of trabecular bone

    University dissertation from Klinisk oral fysiologi, Umeå Universitet

    Author : Christina Lindh; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; trabecular pattern; bone mineral density; bone mineral content; tomography; panoramic radiography; radiography; mandible; endosseous implantation; Odontology; stomatology; Odontologi;

    Abstract : Mandibular autopsy specimens were examined with different radiographic techniques in order to evaluate the visibility of the mandibular canal and the measurement accuracy of distances related to the mandibular canal. Hypocycloidal, spiral and computed tomography (CT) were superior to periapical and panoramic radiography in visualising the mandibular canal. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Klinisk oral fysiologi, Umeå Universitet

    Author : Anna Ödman; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2018]
    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

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

    University dissertation from Centre for Oral Health Sciences, Malmö University

    Author : Awwad Al-Bishri; Malmö University.; [2004]
    Keywords : ODONTOLOGY; ODONTOLOGI; Medicine; Mandible; Osteotomy;

    Abstract : Neurosensory disturbance (NSD) is a common complication to surgical corrections of mandibular deformities particularly when the sagittal split technique is used. With this technique the inferior alveolar nerve can be directly injured during surgery or damaged when trapped between the two bone segments. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Annika Ekestubbe; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Artifacts; Dental Implantation; Endosseous; methods; Dental Implants; Humans; Jaw; Edentulous; radiography; Mandible; radiography; Patient Care Planning; Phantoms; Imaging; Radiation Dosage; Radiography; Dental; methods; Reproducibility of Results; Tomography; X-Ray; instrumentation; methods; Tomography; X-Ray Computed; methods;

    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
