  • A Morphometric and Cellular Analysis Method for the Murine Mandibular Condyle Eliane H. Dutra 1 , Mara H. O'Brien 1 , Alexandro Lima 1 , Ravindra Nanda 1 , Sumit Yadav 1 1 Division of Orthodontics, University of Connecticut Health Center This manuscript presents methods for analyzing morphometric and cellular changes within the mandibular condyle of rodents. (jove.com)
  • Lowering the height of the condyle relative to the mandibular toothrow should reduce the stretching of the masseters and medial pterygoids during jaw opening, as well as position the mandibular incisors more anteriorly at wide jaw gapes. (docme.ru)
  • The head of the mandibular condyle articulates with the glenoid fossa to form the temporomandibular joint. (hindawi.com)
  • morphology
  • Moreover, the variation in their mandibular morphology and predicted feeding behavior might imply the presence in the Gulf of California of the two previously described functional groups found in reef-dwelling parrotfishes: excavators and scrapers. (deepdyve.com)

  • condylar
  • For example, all three gouging species have significantly lower condylar heights relative to the toothrow at a given mandibular length in comparison with closely related, nongouging taxa. (docme.ru)
  • incisors
  • If true, then we might expect primate gougers to exhibit skull modifications that provide increased abilities to produce bite forces at the incisors, withstand loads in the skull, and/or generate large gapes for gouging. (docme.ru)

  • The biomechanical force system that developed not only maintained absolute anchorage, but also provided effective control over the posterior dentoalveolar dimension so that dramatic improvement in facial esthetics could be achieved. (jove.com)
  • morphological
  • We develop 13 morphological predictions based on the expectation that gouging involves relatively large jaw forces and/or jaw gapes. (docme.ru)
  • Our results show little morphological evidence for increased force-production or load-resistance abilities in the skulls of these gouging primates. (docme.ru)
  • Though the coordination patter of masseter and lemporal museles were almost same among subjects, activities of each were seemed to be affected by some morphological factors such as an inclination of mandibular plane. (nii.ac.jp)
  • therefore
  • The purpose of our study was, therefore, to investigate the effect of submaximum biting on golf performance via shot precision and shot length over three different distances. (frontiersin.org)
  • clinical
  • To compare the efficacy of three-dimensional (3D) miniplates with standard miniplates in the osteosynthesis of anterior mandibular fractures on the basis of bite force recordings and other clinical parameters. (springer.com)
  • The assessment of patients was done at weekly intervals for 6 weeks using bite force recordings and other clinical parameters. (springer.com)
  • muscles
  • Before and after the induction of fatigue, all volunteers will be evaluated with regard to the range of mandibular movement, bite force, sensitivity to palpation of the muscles evaluated and muscle fatigue. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Namely it became apparent that these muscles showed reciprocal activation pattern in the changes of bite force direction. (nii.ac.jp)
  • parameters
  • The aim was to analyse which parameters in a standard orthodontic material are most important for identifying factors for low bite force. (ku.dk)
  • dentistry
  • There are numerous strong forces reshaping dentistry and the delivery of dental care. (madridge.com)
  • These forces are hurricane-like in power, growing in intensity, forcefully exerting their impact on reshaping dentistry. (madridge.com)
  • This presentation will address how these forces impact dentistry and dental delivery. (madridge.com)
  • methods
  • For methods, things are a bit more lax here: a list of specimens examined is useful, methods used for preparation, photography, and measurements, and of course anatomical terminology (there are often mutually exclusive sets of anatomical terms, and some reviewers will really nail you if you mix them).

  • different
  • The calculated differences in their bite dynamics suggest that these two species may exploit different food resources, driven by food hardness. (deepdyve.com)
  • comparison
  • However, many researchers have proposed that tree gouging results in larger bite force, larger internal skull loads, and larger jaw gapes in comparison to other chewing and biting behaviors. (docme.ru)
  • model
  • Here, a well-established computational model of jaw biomechanics in fishes (MandibLever 4.0) was used to simulate the mandibular dynamics during feeding of the two dominant reef-dwelling parrotfish species in the Gulf of California (Scarus ghobban and S. perrico), and to infer, to some extent, their potential ecological role. (deepdyve.com)
  • The model predicted a greater jaw closing force and power in the bite of S. perrico, but a higher mandibular rotating velocity in S. ghobban. (deepdyve.com)
  • course
  • Of course, in vivo data on jaw forces and jaw gapes are required to reliably assess skull functions during gouging. (docme.ru)
