Morphological changes in periodontal mechanoreceptors of mouse maxillary incisors after the experimental induction of anterior crossbite: a light and electron microscopic observation using immunohistochemistry for PGP 9.5. (1/243)Ruffini nerve endings (mechanoreceptors) in the periodontal ligament (PDL) of mouse incisors were examined to elucidate whether experimentally-induced crossbites cause any changes or abnormalities in their morphology and distribution. Anterior guiding planes were attached to the mandibular incisors of 3-week-old C3H/HeSlc mice. At 3 days and 1, 2, 4, 6, and 8 weeks post-attachment of the appliance, the mice were sacrificed by perfusion fixation. Frozen sagittal cryostat sections of the decalcified maxillary incisors were processed for immunohistochemistry of protein gene product 9.5, followed by histochemical determination of tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase activity to reveal sites of alveolar bone resorption. Despite the absence of bone resorption within the lingual PDL of control mice, distinct resorption sites were seen in the respective regions of the experimental animals. Unlike the controls, many Ruffini endings showing vague and swollen contours, with unusually long and pedunculated micro-projections were observed in the affected lingual PDL of the incisors in the experimental animals with short-term anterior crossbite induction. Club-shaped nerve terminations with few, if any, micro-projections were observed in the lingual PDL of experimental animals with long-term induction, as well as in aged control mouse incisors. Differences in the distribution of Ruffini endings were also observed. These results indicate that changing the direction of the force applied to the PDL results in rapid and prolonged changes in the morphology of Ruffini-like mechanoreceptors. (+info)
Jaw reflexes evoked by mechanical stimulation of teeth in humans. (2/243)Jaw reflexes evoked by mechanical stimulation of teeth in humans. The reflex response of jaw muscles to mechanical stimulation of an upper incisor tooth was investigated using the surface electromyogram (SEMG) of the masseter muscle and the bite force. With a slowly rising stimulus, the reflex response obtained on the masseter SEMG showed three different patterns of reflex responses; sole excitation, sole inhibition, and inhibition followed by excitation. Simultaneously recorded bite force, however, exhibited mainly one reflex response pattern, a decrease followed by an increase in the net closing force. A rapidly rising stimulus also induced several different patterns of reflex responses in the masseter SEMG. When the simultaneously recorded bite force was analyzed, however, there was only one reflex response pattern, a decrease in the net closing force. Therefore, the reflex change in the masseter muscle is not a good representative of the net reflex response of all jaw muscles to mechanical tooth stimulation. The net response is best expressed by the averaged bite force. The averaged bite force records showed that when the stimulus force was developing rapidly, the periodontal reflex could reduce the bite force and hence protect the teeth and supporting tissues from damaging forces. It also can increase the bite force; this might help keep food between the teeth if the change in force rate is slow, especially when the initial bite force is low. (+info)
Cheek and tongue pressures in the molar areas and the atmospheric pressure in the palatal vault in young adults. (3/243)The pressures acting on the maxillary and mandibular posterior teeth from the tongue and cheeks were measured in 24 adults aged 22-29 years. In addition, the pressure in the palatal vault was recorded. The pressure at two maxillary (buccal and lingual) and two mandibular (buccal and lingual) measuring points, and in the palatal vault was recorded simultaneously. Repeated recordings of the pressures at rest, and during chewing and swallowing were made. The pressures at rest were of similar magnitude (about 2 g/cm2) at the buccal and lingual sides of the mandibular posterior teeth. The median resting pressure at the maxillary posterior teeth was 2.7 g/cm2 on the buccal side and 1.0 g/cm2 on the lingual side. The difference in the maxilla was significant, but not in the mandible. It was concluded that the equilibrium of tooth position is maintained by the pressure from the cheeks and the tongue. During chewing and swallowing the pressures on the lingual side of the teeth were greater than those on the buccal side. At rest about half of the subjects had a negative pressure at the palatal vault, but no correlations between the resting pressure at the palatal vault and the resting pressures on the teeth were found.

Adaptation of the muscles of mastication to the flat skull feature in the polar bear (Ursus maritimus). (4/243)The muscles of mastication of the polar bear (Ursus maritimus) and those of the brown bear (U. arctos) were examined by anatomical approach. In addition, the examination of the skull was carried out in the polar bear, brown bear and giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca). In the polar bear, the rostro-ventral part of the superficial layer of the M. masseter possessed the abundant fleshy portion folded in the rostral and lateral directions like an accordion. Moreover, the rostro-medial area of the superficial layer became hollow in the nuchal direction when the mouth was closed. The M. temporalis of the polar bear covered up the anterior border of the coronoid process of the mandible and occupied the almost entire area of the cranial surface. The M. pterygoideus medialis of the polar bear was inserted on the ventral border of the mandible and on the ventral part of the temporal bone more widely than that of the brown bear. As results of our measurements of the mandible, an effect of the leverage in the polar bear was the smallest in three species. In the polar bear, the skull was flat, and the space between zygomatic arch and ventral border of the mandible, occupied by the M. masseter was the narrowest. It is suggested that the muscles of mastication of the polar bear is adapted to the flat skull feature for supplementing the functions. (+info)
EMG activities of two heads of the human lateral pterygoid muscle in relation to mandibular condyle movement and biting force. (5/243)Electromyographic (EMG) activities of the superior (SUP) and inferior heads (INF) of the lateral pterygoid muscle (LPT) were recorded in humans during voluntary stepwise changes in biting force and jaw position that were adopted to exclude the effects of acceleration and velocity of jaw movements on the muscle activity. The SUP behaved like a jaw-closing muscle and showed characteristic activity in relation to the biting force. It showed a considerable amount of background activity (5-32% of the maximum) even in the intercuspal position without teeth clenching and reached a nearly maximum activity at relatively lower biting-force levels than the jaw-closing muscles during increment of the biting force. Stretch reflexes were found in the SUP, the function of which could be to stabilize the condyle against the biting force that pulls the condyle posteriorly. This notion was verified by examining the biomechanics on the temporomandibular joint. The complex movements of the mandibular condyle in a sagittal plane were decomposed into displacement in the anteroposterior direction (Ac) and angle of rotation (RAc) around a kinesiological specific point on the condyle. In relation to Ac, each head of the LPT showed quite a similar behavior to each other in all types of jaw movements across all subjects. Working ranges of the muscle activities were almost constant (Ac <3 mm for the SUP and Ac >3 mm for the INF). The amount of EMG activity of the SUP changed in inverse proportion to Ac showing a hyperbola-like relation, whereas that of the INF changed rather linearly. The EMG amplitude of the SUP showed a quasilinear inverse relation with RAc in the hinge movement during which the condyle rotated with no movement in the anteroposterior direction. This finding suggests that the SUP controls the angular relationship between the articular disk and the condyle. On the other hand, the position of the disk in relation to the maxilla, not to the condyle, is controlled indirectly by the INF because the disk is attached to the condyle by tendinous ligaments.

Change in the width of the mandibular body from 6 to 23 years of age: an implant study. (6/243)After the ossification of the mandibular symphysis, shortly after birth, changes in mandibular width would be expected to occur only by surface apposition or resorption on the buccal surfaces of the left and right mandibular halves. However, evidence for an opening hinge movement of the two mandibular halves around a vertical axis located in the region of the mandibular symphysis was recently found in longitudinal studies of 29 subjects with unilateral implant markers in the mandible. These subjects were followed from 8.5 to 15.5 years of age (Korn and Baumrind, 1990; Baumrind and Korn, 1992). The aim of the present investigation was to examine whether the presence of such an age-related increase in mandibular body width could be confirmed in a sample with bilateral implant markers in the mandible. The sample comprised 10 subjects (3F, 7M) from the files of another longitudinal study with implant markers (Bjork, 1968). A total of 122 pairs of annual lateral and postero-anterior (p-a) cephalometric records were available, covering longitudinal observation periods ranging from 8 to 16 years within an age interval of between 6 and 23 years. The width between a right and left side mandibular implant marker was measured with digital callipers on all p-a radiographs. Each measurement was corrected mathematically for various sources of radiographic enlargement. A small, but statistically significant increase in the distance between the right and left implant markers, i.e. in the bilateral width of the mandibular body, was observed in all subjects. The total increase in width in each subject ranged from 0.7 to 1.7 mm for the various periods of observation (P < or = 0.01). For the 12-year period from 6 to 18 years, the average total increase was 1.6 mm (P < or = 0.001, SD = 0.42), i.e. 0.13 mm/year. After this age there was no systematic trend. The mechanism for this increase in width is unknown. It is suggested that during postnatal growth, an increasing load from the masticatory occlusal forces might influence endosteal bone remodelling in the mandibular body, thus producing or allowing a gradual permanent outward bending of the right and left mandibular halves. (+info)
Reflex responses induced by tooth unloading. (7/243)The reflex response of the masseter muscle to the rapid unloading of a single maxillary incisor tooth was studied. Unloading of a static force of 2 N in the horizontal direction resulted in a short-latency excitation, inhibition, and long-latency excitation of masseter muscle activity occurring at latencies of approximately 13, 20, and 40 ms, respectively, with a corresponding change in bite force occurring slightly later in each case. Following the blocking of periodontal input by the injection of local anesthetic around the stimulated tooth, inhibitory responses were abolished. Therefore, it is concluded that the observed masseteric inhibition was caused by the unloading of periodontal mechanoreceptors and thus that these receptors may contribute to the jaw unloading reflex. (+info)
Influence on myoelectric discharges of anteroposterior displacement of the mandibular position near the tapping point. (8/243)The purpose of this study was to examine the influence that the anteroposterior mandibular displacement near the tapping point exerts on the myoelectric activity of masseter and temporal muscles at a specific occluding force and to clarify the possibility of judging the mandibular position by measuring the amount of myoelectric discharge. Eight dentulous subjects were selected for the study. Surface electrodes were placed over the anterior, middle and posterior regions of the masseter muscle and over the anterior, middle and posterior bundles of the temporal muscle. Independently of the measurement region, the changes in the masseter and temporal muscle myoelectric activity which accompanied the anteroposterior mandibular displacement, were low. Moreover, when the mandible was displaced anteroposteriorly, the total amount of the myoelectrical discharge from all the recorded places, as well as the amounts of myoelectrical discharge over the middle part of the masseter muscle and the anterior bundle of the temporal muscle reached their lowest values in those mandibular positions which included the tapping point in less than half of the subjects. Therefore, this study indicates that the possibility of judging anteroposterior mandibular displacement by masseter and temporal muscle electromyography is quite low. (+info)
Here are some common types of bites and stings and their symptoms:
1. Insect bites: These can cause redness, swelling, itching, and pain at the site of the bite. Some people may experience an allergic reaction to insect venom, which can be severe and potentially life-threatening. Common insect bites include mosquito bites, bee stings, wasp stings, hornet stings, and fire ant bites.
2. Spider bites: Spiders can also cause a range of symptoms, including redness, swelling, pain, and itching. Some spider bites can be serious and require medical attention, such as the black widow spider bite or the brown recluse spider bite. These bites can cause necrotic lesions, muscle cramps, and breathing difficulties.
3. Animal bites: Animal bites can be serious and can cause infection, swelling, pain, and scarring. Rabies is a potential risk with animal bites, especially if the animal is not up to date on its vaccinations. Common animal bites include dog bites, cat bites, and bat bites.
4. Allergic reactions: Some people may experience an allergic reaction to insect or animal bites or stings, which can be severe and potentially life-threatening. Symptoms of an allergic reaction include hives, itching, difficulty breathing, swelling of the face, tongue, or throat, and a rapid heartbeat.
5. Infections: Bites and stings can also cause infections, especially if the wound becomes infected or is not properly cleaned and cared for. Symptoms of an infection include redness, swelling, pain, warmth, and pus.
It's important to seek medical attention immediately if you experience any of these symptoms after a bite or sting, as they can be serious and potentially life-threatening. A healthcare professional can assess the severity of the injury and provide appropriate treatment.
The venom from snake bites contains a variety of toxins that can affect different parts of the body, including the cardiovascular, nervous, and muscular systems. Some common symptoms of snake bites include:
* Pain and swelling at the bite site
* Blurred vision or difficulty seeing
* Slurred speech or difficulty speaking
* Weakness, numbness, or tingling in the face, arms, or legs
* Seizures or convulsions
* Difficulty breathing or swallowing
* Rapid heartbeat or slow heart rate
* Low blood pressure or high blood pressure
* Nausea and vomiting
In severe cases, snake bites can cause respiratory failure, cardiac arrest, and other life-threatening complications.
The diagnosis of a snake bite is typically made based on the symptoms and medical history of the patient. In some cases, imaging tests like X-rays or CT scans may be ordered to confirm the presence of venom in the body.
Treatment for snake bites usually involves administering antivenin (also known as antivenom) to neutralize the venom and manage symptoms. Antivenin is a type of medicine that contains antibodies specifically designed to counteract the effects of snake venom. In severe cases, patients may require hospitalization and intensive care to monitor and treat any complications.
Prevention is key in avoiding snake bites, and this includes avoiding areas where snakes are known to live, wearing protective clothing and footwear when in these areas, and using repellents or other deterrents to discourage snakes from approaching. Education and awareness about snake behavior and safety measures can also help reduce the risk of snake bites.
The severity of human bites can vary widely depending on the force and location of the bite. Some common consequences of human bites include:
1. Pain: Human bites can cause significant pain, especially if they are deep or if the person who was bitten has an underlying medical condition.
2. Infection: Human bites can become infected with bacteria like streptococcus and staphylococcus, which can lead to serious health complications if left untreated.
3. Nerve damage: If the bite is deep enough, it can cause nerve damage, which may result in numbness or tingling sensations in the affected area.
4. Scarring: Human bites can cause scarring, especially if they are deep and leave a lasting wound.
5. Psychological trauma: Being bitten by someone can be emotionally distressing and may lead to psychological trauma, especially if the bite was intentional or part of a larger aggressive act.
6. Rabies transmission: In rare cases, human bites can transmit rabies if the person who did the biting has not been vaccinated against the disease.
7. Tetanus transmission: Human bites can also transmit tetanus if the person who was bitten has not received a tetanus shot recently.
8. Allergic reactions: Some people may be allergic to certain bacteria that can cause infection from human bites, which can lead to severe allergic reactions and anaphylaxis.
Medical attention should always be sought immediately after a human bite to assess the severity of the injury, treat any infections or nerve damage, and provide appropriate wound care.
Insects such as mosquitoes, wasps, bees, and hornets are common culprits of bites and stings that cause minor to severe reactions in humans. These reactions may cause pain, redness, swelling, itching, and burning sensations at the site of the bite or sting.
Most insect bites and stings can be treated with over-the-counter medications such as antihistamines, hydrocortisone creams, or calamine lotion. Severe allergic reactions may require medical attention and epinephrine injections to prevent anaphylaxis.
Overbite can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, poor oral hygiene, and certain habits such as thumb-sucking or tongue-thrusting. Treatment for an overbite may involve orthodontic braces or other appliances to move the teeth into a more proper position, as well as changes to diet and oral hygiene habits.
In extreme cases, an overbite can lead to more serious problems such as gum disease, tooth wear, and jaw pain. Therefore, it is important to address any issues with an overbite as soon as possible to prevent these complications from developing.
Some common types of spiders that are known to bite humans include black widows, brown recluses, and hobos. Black widow spider bites are characterized by a red, burning sensation at the site of the bite, while brown recluse spider bites can cause necrotic lesions and severe systemic reactions. Hobo spider bites are similar to brown recluse spider bites and can also cause necrotic lesions and systemic reactions.
Treatment for spider bites typically involves supportive care, such as wound cleaning and dressing, antibiotics, and pain management. In severe cases, hospitalization may be necessary to monitor and treat complications.
Prevention is key when it comes to spider bites, and this includes avoiding areas where spiders are known to live, wearing protective clothing and insect repellent, and seeking medical attention promptly if a bite occurs. Early diagnosis and treatment can help to minimize the risk of complications and improve outcomes for patients with spider bites.
An open bite can lead to a range of dental problems, including:
* Tooth wear: The excessive wear on the upper and lower teeth can cause them to become weakened and sensitive.
* Gum recession: The continuous pressure on the gums can cause them to recede, exposing the roots of the teeth and increasing the risk of decay and sensitivity.
* Bone loss: The chronic open bite can lead to bone loss in the jaw, which can eventually result in a weakened jaw structure and an altered facial appearance.
* Difficulty chewing and biting food: An open bite can make it challenging to eat certain foods, leading to digestive problems and nutritional deficiencies.
* Aesthetic concerns: An open bite can also affect the appearance of the teeth and face, potentially leading to low self-esteem and confidence issues.
Treatment for an open bite usually involves a combination of orthodontic and restorative dental procedures, such as braces, Invisalign, or dental fillings to correct the alignment of the teeth and close the gap. Surgical options may also be considered in severe cases where the jaw structure needs to be realigned.
It is essential to seek professional dental care if you suspect that you have an open bite, as early treatment can help prevent more significant problems from developing and improve your overall oral health and well-being.
Overbite: This occurs when the upper teeth overlap the lower teeth too much.
Underbite: This happens when the lower teeth overlap the upper teeth too much.
Crossbite: This is when the upper teeth do not align with the lower teeth, causing them to point towards the inside of the mouth.
Open bite: This occurs when the upper and lower teeth do not meet properly, resulting in a gap or an open bite.
Overjet: This is when the upper teeth protrude too far forward, overlapping the lower teeth.
Crowding: This refers to when there is not enough space in the mouth for all the teeth to fit properly, leading to overlapping or misalignment.
Spacing: This occurs when there is too much space between the teeth, which can lead to gum problems and other issues.
Each type of malocclusion can cause a range of symptoms, including difficulty chewing, jaw pain, headaches, and difficulty opening and closing the mouth fully. Treatment options for malocclusion depend on the severity of the problem and may include orthodontic braces, aligners, or surgery to correct the bite and improve oral function and aesthetics.
TMJD can be caused by a variety of factors, including injury to the joint, misalignment of the teeth, or excessive stress on the jaw. Treatment options for TMJD include pain relievers, physical therapy, and dental splints or mouth guards. In severe cases, surgery may be necessary.
The term "TMJD" was first coined in the medical literature in the 1970s, and since then it has been widely used by healthcare providers to describe this condition. However, some researchers argue that the term is too broad and encompasses a variety of different conditions, and suggest that it be replaced with more specific terms such as "temporomandibular joint disorder" or "TMJ osteoarthritis."
There are several types of TMJ disorders, including:
1. Temporomandibular joint dysfunction syndrome (TMD): This is a common condition that affects the TMJ and the surrounding muscles, causing pain and limited movement in the jaw.
2. Dislocation of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ dislocation): This occurs when the ball and socket of the TMJ become dislocated, leading to pain and limited movement in the jaw.
3. Osteoarthritis of the temporomandibular joint: This is a condition where the cartilage that covers the bones of the TMJ wears down over time, causing pain and stiffness in the jaw.
4. Internal derangement of the temporomandibular joint: This occurs when the disc or meniscus of the TMJ becomes displaced or dislocated, leading to pain and limited movement in the jaw.
5. Temporomandibular joint degenerative changes: This is a condition where the cartilage and bone of the TMJ wear down over time, causing pain and stiffness in the jaw.
TMJ disorders can be caused by a variety of factors, including injury to the jaw, misalignment of the teeth, or excessive clenching or grinding of the teeth. Symptoms of TMJ disorders may include pain in the jaw, face, or neck, limited movement of the jaw, difficulty chewing or speaking, and clicking or popping sounds when opening or closing the mouth.
Treatment for TMJ disorders can vary depending on the severity of the condition and may include self-care measures such as jaw exercises, heat or cold therapy, and pain relief medications. In some cases, dental splints or occlusal adjustments may be recommended to help align the teeth and reduce pressure on the TMJ. Surgery may be considered in severe cases where other treatments have been unsuccessful.
It is important to seek medical attention if you experience persistent pain or difficulty with jaw movement, as early diagnosis and treatment can help prevent long-term complications and improve quality of life.
Also known as: Class II malocclusion, overbite.
* Overlapping of the upper teeth over the lower teeth
* Limited opening of the mouth

* Dietary changes to avoid chewing on hard objects
Note: This is a general definition and the specifics may vary depending on the source. It's important to consult with a medical professional for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
What are the 5 main causes of Bruxism?
The five main causes of bruxism are:
1. Stress and anxiety: Many people experience bruxism as a result of stress and anxiety. When we are under stress, our body responds by tensing up our muscles, including those in the jaw. This can lead to teeth grinding or clenching.
2. Misaligned teeth: People with misaligned teeth are more likely to experience bruxism. This is because their teeth do not fit together properly, leading to friction and strain on the jaw muscles.
3. Sleep disorders: Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea can lead to bruxism. When we have a sleep disorder, our body may respond by grinding or clenching our teeth in an attempt to keep our airways open.
4. Poor posture: Poor posture can put strain on the jaw muscles, leading to bruxism. For example, people who slouch or lean forward may be more likely to experience teeth grinding or clenching.
5. Genetics: Some people may be more prone to bruxism due to their genetic makeup. Research suggests that certain genetic mutations can increase the risk of developing bruxism.
What are the 4 main symptoms of Bruxism?
The four main symptoms of bruxism are:
1. Teeth grinding or clenching: This is the most common symptom of bruxism and can occur during the day or night.
2. Jaw pain: People with bruxism may experience pain in their jaw, especially when they open their mouth wide or chew food.
3. Headaches: Bruxism can cause headaches due to the constant pressure on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
4. Tooth wear: Grinding and clenching can cause the enamel of the teeth to wear down, leading to chipped or flat teeth.

Symptoms: The symptoms of tick bites may vary depending on the type of tick and the individual's sensitivity to its saliva. Some common symptoms include redness, swelling, itching, and a rash at the site of the bite. In some cases, these bites can also lead to fever, headache, and joint pain.
Risk Factors: People who spend time outdoors in tick-infested areas are at a higher risk of getting bitten by ticks. This includes hikers, campers, gardeners, and hunters. Wearing protective clothing, using insect repellents, and doing regular tick checks can help reduce the risk of tick bites.
Diagnosis: Tick bites are usually diagnosed based on their appearance and symptoms. In some cases, a healthcare provider may perform tests to rule out other conditions or confirm the presence of tick-borne diseases.
Treatment: Treatment for tick bites typically involves removing the tick and cleaning the wound with soap and water. Antibiotics may be prescribed if the bite is infected or if the individual has a history of Lyme disease or other tick-borne illnesses. In severe cases, hospitalization may be necessary to manage complications such as allergic reactions or infections.
Prevention: Preventing tick bites involves taking several measures, including using insect repellents, wearing protective clothing, and doing regular tick checks. It is also essential to be aware of the types of ticks that are present in your area and their potential health risks. Removing any attached ticks promptly and correctly can also help prevent infection.
In conclusion, tick bites can cause a range of symptoms and may transmit diseases such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and anaplasmosis. If you suspect you have been bitten by a tick or are experiencing symptoms after a tick bite, it is essential to seek medical attention promptly. Proper diagnosis and treatment can help prevent complications and ensure a full recovery.
