Activation of peripheral GABAA receptors inhibits temporomandibular joint-evoked jaw muscle activity. (1/310)

We have previously shown that injection of mustard oil or glutamate into rat temporomandibular joint (TMJ) tissues, an experimental model of acute TMJ injury, can reflexly induce a prolonged increase in the activity of both digastric (jaw-opener) and masseter (jaw-closer) muscles. In this study, GABA was applied to the TMJ region by itself or in combination with glutamate, and the magnitude of evoked jaw muscle electromyographic (EMG) activity was measured. Application of GABA alone to the TMJ region did not evoke significant jaw muscle EMG activity when compared with normal saline controls. In contrast, co-application of GABA and glutamate into the TMJ region decreased the magnitude of glutamate-evoked EMG activity. This GABA-mediated inhibition of glutamate-evoked EMG activity followed an inverse dose-response relationship with an estimated median inhibitory dose (ID50) of 0.17 +/- 0.05 (SE) micromol and 0.031 +/- 0.006 micromol for the digastric and masseter muscles, respectively. Co-administration of the GABAA receptor antagonist bicuculline (0.05 micromol) but not the GABAB receptor antagonist phaclofen (0.05 or 0. 15 micromol) reversed the suppressive actions of GABA, indicating that this action of GABA may be mediated by peripheral GABAA receptors located within the TMJ region. Our results suggest that activation of peripheral GABAA receptors located within the TMJ region could act to decrease the transmission of nociceptive information.  (+info)

Halothane induces calcium release from human skinned masseter muscle fibers. (2/310)

BACKGROUND: An increase in masseter muscle tone in response to halothane or succinylcholine anesthesia (or both) can be observed in healthy persons. Thus the authors compared the fiber-type halothane and succinylcholine sensitivities in human masseter and vastus lateralis muscles. METHODS: Masseter and vastus lateralis muscle segments were obtained from 13 and 9 healthy persons, respectively. After chemical skinning of a single fiber and loading the sarcoplasmic reticulum with Ca++ 0.16 microM solution, halothane (0.5-4 vol% bubbled in the incubating solution), succinylcholine (0.1 microM to 10 mM), or both sensitivities were defined as the concentration inducing more than 10% of the maximum tension obtained by application of 16 microM Ca++ solution. The myofilament response to Ca++ was studied with and without halothane by observing the isometric tension of skinned masseter fibers challenged with increasing concentrations of Ca++. Muscle fiber type was determined by the difference in strontium-induced tension measurements. RESULTS: A significant difference in halothane sensitivity was found between type 1 masseter fibers (0.6+/-0.2 vol%; mean +/- SD) versus type 1 (2.7+/-0.6 vol%) and type 2 vastus lateralis muscle (2.5+/-0.4 vol%). Succinylcholine did not induce Ca++ release by the sarcoplasmic reticulum. In the masseter muscle, 0.75 vol% halothane decreased the maximal activated tension by 40% but did not change the Ca++ concentration that yields 50% of the maximal tension. CONCLUSIONS: The very low halothane threshold for Ca++ release from the masseter muscle usually could be counteracted by a direct negative inotropic effect on contractile proteins. However, halothane may increase the sensitivity of the sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca++ release to succinylcholine-induced depolarization, leading to an increase in masseter muscle tone.  (+info)

Jaw reflexes evoked by mechanical stimulation of teeth in humans. (3/310)

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)

Muscle spindle afferent input to motoneurons in human masseter. (4/310)

The H-reflex response in large and small single motor units in human deep anterior masseter was studied to investigate the distribution of muscle spindle afferents onto masseter motoneurons. We found that only the larger units displayed H-reflex responses. This indicates preferential distribution of muscle spindle input onto large motoneurons or a skewed distribution of tonic presynaptic inhibitory mechanisms.  (+info)

Jaw reflexes in healthy old people. (5/310)

OBJECTIVE: to investigate variations in the masseteric myotatic reflex (jaw-jerk) and the silent period from the 5th to the 9th decades of life. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: electromyographic data were recorded from the masseter muscle of the preferred chewing side by surface electrodes, using a computerized recording and analysis system. Chin taps were applied with a neurologist's hammer during mandibular rest and at 40% intercuspal clenching in 30 healthy people aged from 49 to 87 years. The influence of age, gender and silent period type were analysed by multiple regression analysis (P < or = 0.05). RESULTS: even in the very old subjects all reflexes were elicited, at least once. However, with increasing age the overall occurrence of the jaw-jerk reflex at rest (%) and its amplitude, at rest and at clench, were reduced, while its latency at rest was significantly increased (P < or = 0.05). No age effects were recorded in most parameters of the jaw-jerk reflex at clench and in the silent period. Women showed a tendency for reduced latencies of the jaw-jerk and the early silent period and increased silent period duration (P < or = 0.05). They also had a steeper decline in myotatic reflex activity, particularly at rest. CONCLUSION: simple masseteric reflex activity is maintained until very old age, particularly when elicited during contraction of the jaw elevators.  (+info)

Behavior of jaw muscle spindle afferents during cortically induced rhythmic jaw movements in the anesthetized rabbit. (6/310)

The regulation by muscle spindles of jaw-closing muscle activity during mastication was evaluated in anesthetized rabbits. Simultaneous records were made of the discharges of muscle spindle units in the mesencephalic trigeminal nucleus, masseter and digastric muscle activity (electromyogram [EMG]), and jaw-movement parameters during cortically induced rhythmic jaw movements. One of three test strips of polyurethane foam, each of a different hardness, was inserted between the opposing molars during the jaw movements. The induced rhythmic jaw movements were crescent shaped and were divided into three phases: jaw-opening, jaw-closing, and power. The firing rate of muscle spindle units during each phase increased after strip application, with a tendency for the spindle discharge to be continuous throughout the entire chewing cycle. However, although the firing rate did not change during the jaw-opening and jaw-closing phases when the strip hardness was altered, the firing rate during the power phase increased in a hardness-dependent manner. In addition, the integrated EMG activity, the duration of the masseteric bursts, and the minimum gape increased with strip hardness. Spindle discharge during the power phase correlated with jaw-closing muscle activity, implying that the change in jaw-closing muscle activity associated with strip hardness was caused by increased spindle discharge produced through insertion of a test strip. The increased firing rate during the other two phases may be involved in a long-latency spindle feedback. This could contribute to matching the spatiotemporal pattern of the central pattern generator to that of the moving jaw.  (+info)

Global field power helps separate respiratory-related evoked potentials from EMG contamination. (7/310)

Respiratory-related evoked potentials (RREPs) were stimulated by brief (200-ms) oral pressure pulses (-10 cmH(2)O) applied at the onset of inspiration in 12 subjects. Scalp potentials were measured at 30 sites on a rectangular grid that encompassed the right side of the scalp overlying the somatosensory cortex (SSC). Concurrent and significant masseter EMG (mEMG) activity was evoked by the pressure pulse, and we found correlational evidence for contamination of the RREP by the mEMG. The global field power (GFP) was used to provide a robust, reference-independent measure of SSC activation that provided partial insulation from mEMG contamination. The mean GFP from all subjects, reflective of afferent information from respiratory mechanoreceptors, showed a latency to onset of significant afferent SSC activity of approximately 25 ms. Scalp GFP activity during control experiments (absence of applied pressure) was significant and may reflect ongoing afferent activity from inspiration.  (+info)

Contribution of supraglottal mechanoreceptor afferents to respiratory-related evoked potentials in humans. (8/310)

We used the global field power (GFP) to estimate the magnitude and timing of activation of the somatosensory cortex by respiratory mechanoreceptor afferents in normal humans in response to brief, negative oral pressure pulses applied at the onset of inspiration. We compared responses before (test) and after insertion of a laryngeal mask airway (LMA) that prevented supraglottal airway receptors from sensing the applied stimulus. Evoked potential responses without supraglottic stimulation were smaller, with delayed or missing features, than those with all receptors stimulated. Supraglottic receptors contribute about one-half of the GFP summed over the 100 ms poststimulus, and subglottal receptors, including those in the larynx, provide a GFP response approximately 38% above baseline. The most obvious difference between test and LMA responses occurred at 55 ms on average, when the LMA GFP lacked activation features seen in the test condition. We conclude that mechanoreceptors above the larynx are responsible for a major portion of the midlatency afferent information arriving at the somatosensory cortex in response to applied pressure pulses.  (+info)

Objective(s): Occlusal trauma is one of the most common forms of oral biting dysfunction. Long-term occlusal trauma could weaken the stomatognathic system; especially damage ones masticatory muscle. Through using the rat model, this study investigated the trophic effect of ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) on injured masseter muscle. Materials and Methods: Male Wistar rats (n=36) were randomly divided into five experimental groups and one control group (6 rats per group). Animals in the experimental group were cemented modified crowns on their mandibular first molars to artificially induce occlusal trauma in 1, 3, 7, 14, and 28 days. Control group was sham-treated with forced mouth-opening for about 5 min, while no crowns were placed. After 28 days of treatment, all rats were euthanized and their masseter muscle was collected. Through immunofluorescence and real-time quantitative PCR, the expression of desmin, CNTF, and CNTFRα was investigated in rat masseter muscle. The microstructure of ...
Chronic myalgia is associated with higher muscle levels of certain algesic biomarkers. The aim of this study was to investigate if hypertonic saline-induced jaw myalgia also leads to release of such biomarkers and if there were any sex differences in this respect. Healthy participants, 15 men and 15 aged-matched women (25.7 +/- 4.3 years) participated. Intramuscular microdialysis into masseter muscles was performed to sample serotonin (5-HT), glutamate, lactate, pyruvate, glucose and glycerol. After 2 hours 0.2 mL hypertonic saline (58.5 mg/mL) was injected into the masseter on one side and 0.2 mL isotonic saline (9 mg/mL) into the contralateral masseter close to the microdialysis catheter. Microdialysis continued for 1 hour after the injections. Pressure pain thresholds (PPT) and pain were assessed before and after injections. The median (IQR) peak pain intensity (0-100 visual analogue scale) after hypertonic saline was 52.5 (38.0) and after isotonic saline 7.5 (24.0) (p less than 0.05). 5-HT, ...
Effect of Short-Term Forward Head Posture Correction for Masseter Muscle Activity and Temporomandibular Joint Function for People with Upper Cross Syndrome
Environmental remodelling of the craniofacial musculature is obligatory for successful outcomes following interventions such as functional appliance therapy or orthognathic surgery. Genetically driven remodelling of the craniofacial musculature is also seen in individuals with altered facial form. The processes that are involved in the remodelling of intramuscular connective tissue need to be activated in such situations. Such processes require activity of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and the tissue inhibitors of matrix metalloproteinases (TIMPs), which are responsible for extracellular matrix (ECM) turnover. The aim of this study was, therefore, to establish the expression of MMP-2 and MMP-9 and their inhibitors, TIMP-1 and TIMP-2, in the masseter muscle of humans with both normal and increased vertical facial form and to assess whether this expression had any value as a predictor of facial form.. Biopsies were taken from 20 subjects (10 with vertical facial deformity and 10 with normal ...

Introduction: Temporomandibular disorder (TMD) is a musculoskeletal disorder that involves various clinical conditions of masticatory muscles, temporomandibular joints and accompanied tissues. The most prominent symptom is pain in masticatory muscles. The etiology of TMD is poorly understood. Objectives of this study were to examine the individual effect of chronic stress and occlusal interference, as well as their combined influence on masseter muscle pain. The study also aimed to investigate influence of proposed etiological factors on systemic and local level of interleukine-6 (IL-6) and to find possible correlation between IL-6 and muscle pain. The aim was to estimate the contribution of chronic stress, occlusal interference and IL-6 levels on masseter muscle pain and to estimate contribution of chronic stress and occlusal interference on IL-6 levels. Material and methods: Experiments were performed on 50 male Wistar rats. Animals were divided in five groups of 10 rats. Groups were as ...
Purpose: The goal of the present study is to develop and evaluate an automated technique for measuring biting and chewing related surface electromyographic (EMG) activity of the masseter muscle. Methods: Data from 28 neurologically healthy participants between the ages of 18-40 were selected for this study. The procedure for collecting the bite/chew data consisted of the participant biting down and chewing three small breath mints while an EMG sensor recorded the masseter muscle activity. A five-step Matlab-based algorithm was created to accurately identify onsets and offsets of each bite and chew event. Results: Compared to manual measurements using standard conventions, the algorithm was 77% accurate in identifying the onset and offset bite events, and 95% accurate in identifying the onset and offset of chew events. Error analysis revealed a number of consistencies in the form of the errors. Additionally, bite events were typically longer in duration than the chew events and had a larger integral
To characterize the structure of jaw muscle fibres expressing masticatory (superfast) myosin, X-ray diffraction patterns of glycerinated fibres of dog masseter were compared with those of dog tibialis anterior in the relaxed state. Meridional reflections of masseter fibres were laterally broad, indicating that myosin filaments are staggered along the filament axis. Compared with tibialis anterior fibres, the peak of the first myosin layer line of masseter fibres was lower in intensity and shifted towards the meridian, while lattice spacings were larger at a similar sarcomere length. These suggest that the myosin heads of masticatory fibres are mobile, and tend to protrude from the filament shaft towards actin filaments. Lowering temperature or treating with N-phenylmaleimide shifted the peak of the first myosin layer line of tibialis anterior fibres towards the meridian and the resulting profile resembled that of masseter fibres. This suggests that the protruding mobile heads in the non-treated ...
A functional integration between the trigeminal and craniocervical sensorimotor systems has been demonstrated, with simultaneous jaw and head-neck movements during jaw opening-closing. We previously showed that pain induction in the masseter muscle increased the relative contribution of the neck component of integrated jaw-neck movements. Induced pain or manipulation of proprioception by vibration did not affect accuracy during a jaw-opening task in men. It is not known how multimodal sensory stimulation, with a combination of pain induction and vibration, affects jaw-opening accuracy and precision. The aim was to investigate how jaw-neck movements, and specifically accuracy and precision of jaw-opening, are affected during concomitant nociceptive and proprioceptive stimulation of the masseter muscle. Twenty-one healthy men performed jaw-opening to a target position, defined as 75% of individual maximum jaw opening, during control (Ctr), vibration of masseter muscles (Vib), pain induction in the ...

Would you say youre competitive?. What? Was he having a personal conversation with my shadow? How did he know I was just thinking about that? Well, apparently that stuff is showing up in my tummy and in my jaw. So we had a little conversation about my masseters (my jaw muscles). Practitioner: It seems like your masseters have simply forgotten how to relax. Its like the rest of you can have fun and relax, but they cant.. Me: What would masseters do for fun?. Practitioner: [confused look] Well, I didnt really mean--. Me: No, Im really curious. What do you think masseters would do for fun?. Practitioner: Chew?. Me: Yeah, that makes sense. Oh! What about singing?. Practitioner: Singing would definitely be fun for the masseters and good for your body in lots of different ways.. So, Im giving myself singing for homework. Who knew that my shadow gets all worked up when she doesnt get to sing? ...
Our non-surgical facial/jawline slimming is a minimally invasive treatment that reduces the appearance of a wide, square jawline. It involves injections into your jaw muscles (masseters) to relax them, thereby creating a slimmer, softer jawline.. As the masseter muscles are used for chewing food on a daily basis, these muscles tend to be quite strong. You may require consecutive treatments to achieve the full desired effect ...

from your symptoms it sounds like the problem is referred pain from trigger points (painful nodules) in the masseter muscle that is at the back of your jaw bone. If you were to press in on your cheek here (from bottom of jaw bone to top in from of ear) you would likely find some very tender spots. With pressure applied they may recreate the pain you feel. The reason it is worse after eating is because of using the jaw muscles. Massage, direct pressure, moist heat and stretching that muscle could be very helpful. Trigger points in the jaw muscles often mimic tooth problems as that is where ...
Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of non-progressive developmental movement disorders inducing a strong brain reorganization in primary and secondary motor areas. Nevertheless, few studies have been dedicated to quantify brain pattern changes and correlate them with motor characteristics in CP children. In this context, it is very important to identify feasible and complementary tools able to enrich the description of motor impairments by considering their neural correlates. To this aim, we recorded the electroencephalographic activity and the corresponding event-related desynchronization (ERD) of a group of mild-to-moderate affected unilateral CP children while performing unilateral reach-to-grasp movements with both their paretic and non-paretic arms ...
They state1 that while lengthening or weakness of the scapular retractors is often blamed, a major cause is weakness and lengthening of the abdominal muscles, allowing the chest to descend and shifting the weight of the upper trunk anteriorly. This causes the chest to descend with the scapula shifting forward around the rib cage, pressing the clavicle to the first rib. In this position, the humerus internally rotates and the head and neck are brought forward. As the head and neck are brought forward, the patient is forced to extend the occiput to keep the eyes horizontal, resulting in overactivity of the suboccipital muscles. With the head in a forward position, a passive tensile force is created in the hyoid muscles resulting in hyoid muscle tension, causing the mandible to be depressed and translated posteriorly. The patient is therefore forced to contract the temporalis and masseter muscles to keep the mouth closed. This abnormal mandibular positioning can cause myofascial stress to the ...
The masseter muscle is the strongest muscle in the body and can exert a huge amount of force, this muscle is our primary chewing muscle and rarely receives a break due to eating and talking, add that to grinding and clenching through the day and night and you can clearly see this is a muscle worthy of some TLC. Discomfort in the soft tissue of the neck and shoulders may also be alleviated by treating the muscles of mastication as they often develop secondary trigger points in TMJ syndrome ...

The evolution of these traits can be seen in a series of fossils. Procynosuchus shows an increase in size of the dentary bone and the beginnings of a palate. Thrinaxodon has a reduced number of incisors, a precursor to tooth differentiation. Cynognathus (a doglike carnivore) shows a further increase in size of the dentary bone. The other three bones are located inside the back portion of the jaw. Some teeth are multicusped and the teeth fit together tightly. Diademodon (a plant eater) shows a more advanced degree of occlusion (teeth fitting tightly). Probelesodon has developed a double joint in the jaw. The jaw could hinge off two points with the upper skull. The front hinge was probably the actual hinge while the rear hinge was an alignment guide. The forward movement of a hinge point allowed for the precursor to the modern masseter muscle to anchor further forward in the jaw. This allowed for a more powerful bite. The first true mammal was Morgonucudon, a rodent-like insectivore from the late ...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of Fluori-Methane vapocoolant spray, as used in the spray and stretch technique, on decreasing a prolonged silent period duration in the masseter muscle. Ten subjects were selected, all of whom were identified as having masseter muscle dysfunction and/or spasm. The population consisted of two males and eight females, whose ages ranged from 24-58. The silent period duration of the masseter was measured following elicitation of the jaw-jerk reflex. Five readings were taken and the mean silent period duration was calculated. All means longer than 35 milliseconds were considered prolonged. An EDX 1000 electromyograph and Beckman standard size silver surface electrodes were used in recording the data. The amount of mandibular depression available was also measured. Once these measurements were completed, each subject was treated using Fluori-Methane vapocoolant spray, as used in the spray and stretch technique. The silent period duration and ...
Craniofacial asymmetry is a dentofacial deformity with genetic influences. The genes PITX2, ENPP1 and ESR1 have multiple genetic associations with functional properties in muscle and bone. The objectives of this study are to investigate how PITX2, ENPP1 and ESR1 gene expression associates with four subclassifications of craniofacial asymmetry, temporomandibular disorders and fiber type differences compared between right and left masseter muscles. We developed an asymmetry classification that diagnosed four types of asymmetry with distinctive growth patterns: Group 1 - menton deviation without ramal difference (mandibular body asymmetry); Group 2 -menton deviation with shorter ramal height on the deviated side (typical asymmetry); Group 3 - shorter ramal height on the opposite side of menton deviation (atypical asymmetry); Group 4 - menton deviation with shorter ramal height and maxillary canting on the deviated side (C-shaped asymmetry). Some of these patients are at high risk for TMD; ...

Its fibers pass downward, lateral, and posterior, and are inserted, by a strong tendinous lamina, into the lower and back part of the medial surface of the ramus and angle of the mandible, as high as the mandibular foramen. The insertion joins the masseter muscle to form a common tendinous sling which allows the medial pterygoid and masseter to be powerful elevators of the jaw. As stated by one Dr. Anderson of UDMSD, the medial pterygoid goes from the canoe to the rough water. (The canoe is the depression created by the medial and lateral plates of pterygoid process, and rough water is the rough attachment surface on the medial aspect of the angle of the mandible.) ...

Aim: To investigate the electromyographic activity of masticatory muscles in women with myogenic or mixed TMD treated with ultrasound and ultrasound associated with stretching. Methods: Sixteen women with myogenic or mixed TMD, according to the Research Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorder (RDC/TMD), participated in the study. The patients were evaluated using surface electromyography (sEMG) of the masseter and anterior temporalis muscles, during maximum intercuspation, before and immediately after application of therapeutic resources. All patients were treated by ultrasound (US), ultrasound associated with stretching and placebo ultrasound, by turns, once a week with a one-week minimum interval between them. Results: There was greater symmetry of the masseter muscle electrical activity after ultrasound associated with stretching (p=0.03). The electromyographic values for the maximum intercuspation as well as the symmetry of anterior temporal muscle (p=0.47, p=0.84, p=0.84) and ...

Testosterone is directly involved in sex differences in masseter muscle. Thus, a brief exposure to testosterone during postnatal maturation [in castrated rabbits] is able to produce a long lasting myosin heavy chain isoform switch that is similar in magnitude to that found during normal development. (Cells Tissues Organs. 2001;169(3):210-7). I suggest this was ongoing in the robust hominids which exhibited very large masseter muscles. (These hominids were the construction of increasing testosterone which, because their brains were not using as much DHEA at the time, directed their DHEA for their bodies.) This effect of testosterone may be teased apart from the real effect of DHEA levels. In castrated rats, myosin heavy chain (MHC) expression in the soleus and extensor digitorum longus muscles is positively affected by nandrolone (nortestosterone decanoate) and exercise but not by nandrolone, alone. In conclusion, it appears that endogenous anabolic steroids are not essential for the ...
Altered contour of the lower face is a frequent complication of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). HIV facial lipoatrophy or loss of facial fat commonly results from antiretroviral therapy. Posterior cheek enlargement leading to a bulky and widened lower facial contour can also be seen in HIV. These changes can lead to significant cosmetic disfigurement and have an enormous psychosocial impact on patients. They also make individuals vulnerable by making them recognizable as persons living with HIV. Posterior cheek enlargement has not been well characterized. Both the parotid salivary gland and the masseter muscle are located in the posterior cheek region. Although parotid gland enlargement in a common complication of HIV, it is unknown whether enlargement of the masseter muscle also contributes. The investigators plan to study posterior cheek enlargement in HIV positive individuals. The investigators also plan to use botulinum toxin A as a novel treatment to improve the altered lower facial ...

We will first focus on the Temporalis and Masseter muscles and note the broad and very strong muscles, tendinous sheaths and fascia. The picture on the left demonstrates a jaw cut away to expose the Internal Pterygoid Muscle.. For more than 23 years I have treated patients suffering from TMJD and the approach is multifocal. It is important to carefully evaluate the patient to make sure that any patient that suffers from TMJD is in the right place and the doctor is not going to do further harm to the patients TMJ and the doctor is not just wasting their patients time and money. For this reason a complete history and exam is necessary along with motion palpation of the joint watching for mandibular deviation, vertical opening and closing as well as forward (anterior) and backward (posterior) gliding, carbon bites for malocclusion, listening for clicks, pops or any locking. Assessing coping mechanisms to stress at home and in the workplace. Occasionally dental co-management is necessary. ...
Abstract: The relationship between cranial morphology and diet has long been investigated in bats. Bats of the genus Myotis include insectivorous, facultatively piscivorous, and piscivorous species. We tested the hypothesis that facultatively piscivorous (five Myotis species) and piscivorous species (M. vivesi) present cranial morphological and functional changes with respect to insectivorous taxa (16 Myotis species). Cranial shapes in skull and mandible modules were described with four geometric landmark configurations in these dietary groups. Gape capacity was measured with the stretch factors for temporal and masseter muscles. Geometric configurations from two skull and two mandible shapes were analyzed to detect differences in cranial morphology in relation to diet. Differences in cranial morphology were found between piscivorous and insectivorous species involving the mandibular process where masticatory muscles are attached. Linear regression analysis of Procrustes distances and gape ...
A male term infant of 39 weeks gestation was born via spontaneous vaginal delivery. Pregnancy was unremarkable with no maternal health concerns. Labor was uneventful with no instrumentation or resuscitation required. Apgar scores were 9 at 1 minute and 9 at 5 minutes. Birth weight was 2.675 kg (3rd-10th percentile). The infant was noted to have limited mouth opening and he developed grunting, drooling, and mild respiratory distress that resolved with oral suctioning. No intervention was required other than intermittent suctioning.. Maternal and family history was unremarkable. Parents were nonconsanguineous and had 2 older, healthy children. Initial examination showed that the boys maximal mouth opening was 10 mm. No other physical abnormalities were noted. Computed tomography of the jaw at 3 months of age revealed no evidence of bony dysplasia, fusion, or dislocation. MRI of the jaw at 3 months of age revealed no signs of ankylosis with no abnormal signal within masseter muscles. MRI of the ...
sufferers, they are ineffective in stopping the painful side effects of teeth grinding, and do nothing for daytime tooth grinding.. Dentists have been injecting small doses of Botox directly into the large muscle that moves the jaw (masseter muscle) thereby successfully weakening it enough to stop involuntary grinding of the teeth and clenching of the jaw. Botox significantly relaxes the muscle, reducing the wear and tear on the teeth, due to grinding. Although it is not a cure for bruxism, Botox appears to effectively control uncomfortable symptoms better than a night guard for some patients, and treatment typically lasts for three to four months.. A downside emerged a number of years ago, though, showing evidence that Botox treatment may trigger a dramatic loss of bone density in the jaw. In a 2012 study in the journal Bone, Rabbits were injected with botulinum toxin on one side of the jaw and researchers found that after four weeks, the bone in the injected side was severely decreased. ...
A square jaw line is considered more of a masculine feature that gives the face a boxier shape, and it is for this reason that jaw line contouring has become a popular cosmetic procedure. Cosmetic jaw line contouring is typically performed on women. It has the ability to achieve a less prominent jaw line, create a harmonious balance with other facial features and soften the appearance.. People who have an enlarged masseter often have a square jaw line. The masseter is a muscle located in the jaw, responsible for moving the jaw when people clench or chew.. Some personal habits, such as excessive chewing of hard foods, chewing gum, or grinding teeth can cause a noticeable enlargement of the masseter ...

The Myoware picks up a good strong electrical signal when sensors are placed close to the heart…but when placed on the abdomen did not really pick up anything I could see correlating to breathing or diaphragm movement. Either I had my sensors incorrectly placed or the circuit is not sensitive enough for this purpose. Adjusting the gain potentiometer on the Myoware PCB did change the gain response but didnt provide the response I was looking for - It was hoped that it would be possible to correlate diaphragm muscle movement with regular breathing.. I did notice that if I activated (flexed) my abdmoninal muscles electrical signals were definitely present and well detected…maybe I dont use my diaphragm much when I breathe in and out? I will have to investigate further.. ...
