  • distal
  • Each mechanism is disposed between the arches, and is attached to the maxillary arch at a more distal location than it is attached to the mandibular arch. (google.com)
  • maxillary
  • Since in the preferred embodiment of the invention the adjustment is associated solely with the maxillary arch, the invention is well-suited for use with virtually any type of attachment to the mandibular arch. (google.com)
  • The method of reestablishing a proper occlusal relationship is discussed in this article using a conventional maxillary denture and fixed mandibular implant restoration to correct the occlusal issues. (dentalnews.com)
  • Prevalence
  • Determination of actual prevalence is difficult because this mandibular parafunctional behavior is performed at a subconscious level by most individuals. (issuu.com)
  • gunshot
  • In a motor vehicle accident or a gunshot wound, multiple fractures should be suspected along with injuries to the soft tissue, C-spine, and central nervous system. (medscape.com)
  • surfaces
  • This often involves examination of fracture surfaces to identify relevant features, such as fracture plane angles, which can determine the directions of the break forces. (lww.com)
  • Fractographic analyses are generally most informative when applied to brittle fracture surfaces, where there is little or no deformation to obscure the original paths of the growing cracks. (lww.com)
  • facial
  • There are a number of situations that can cause facial fractures, such as automobile accidents, falls, injuries caused from being active in certain sports, or assaults. (kimberlyleemd.com)
  • bone
  • When the screws adjacent to the fracture are activated, the fracture segments are forced together, resulting in primary bone healing. (medscape.com)
  • Zygomatic bone is separated from adjacent bones at or near the suture lines due to heavy forces. (traumamon.com)
  • Disruption of the malar bone position is very important from psychological, esthetic, and functional viewpoints because it might disrupt ocular and mandibular functions ( 6 , 7 ). (traumamon.com)
  • Although certain symptoms are specific for the particular bone that has been fractured, for example if you fractured your nose, you may experience minor nosebleeds, some symptoms are more common to any area in where a bone may have been fractured. (kimberlyleemd.com)
  • Specially developed thin materials are then carefully placed onto the bone fragments, so as to secure the fracture. (kimberlyleemd.com)
  • functional
  • If gone untreated, cheekbone fractures can lead to unwanted cosmetic and functional issues. (kimberlyleemd.com)
  • The functional portion of the examination should include palpation of the muscles of mastication, a mandibular range of motion test, and a thorough evaluation of the temporomandibular joints, including load testing and Doppler auscultation of the joints. (cdeworld.com)
  • cusp
  • The force was delivered by a stainless steel ball fixture, set in a uniaxial lever to replicate a cusp contact, with a crosshead speed of 1 mm/min. (jcda.ca)
  • arch
  • In response to jaw closure, the telescopically engaged members of each mechanism assume a force applying position whereby an anteriorly directed force is exerted on the mandibular arch. (google.com)
