This study was a comparative evaluation of the bending resistance of metallic and resorbable plates and screws in a mandibular body fracture model. Forty polyurethane synthetic hemimandibles were used; a vertical linear cut was made between the second and first premolars. These 40 hemimandibles were divided into four groups of 10 and were fixed with titanium plates and screws or resorbable plates and screws, with monocortical screws in the upper sector and bicortical screws in the lower sector. Bending resistance tests were done on a universal testing machine with a linear displacement speed of 1 mm/min, a cell load of 500 N, and a load cell on the lower central incisor or on the lower second premolar. Results were analyzed using the Students t-test, with the significance level set at 5%. No statistically significant differences were observed between the groups studied, either in the analysis of the osteosynthesis materials or related to the load-bearing points. The variables of displacement ...
The results of this investigation may support the fact that the dentoalveolar compensatory mechanism aims to maintain a functional occlusion in connection with craniofacial growth. In the high-angle group, the alveolar bone had to grow more in order to compensate or partly compensate for the vertical craniofacial growth, and therefore, the bodies of the maxilla and mandible became higher. The fact that the arches became narrower in the midline of the mandible might be due to the difference in loading. It can be hypothesised that the alveolar bone in the high-angle subjects are less loaded than the bone in the low-angle group. In the low-angle group, the root resides in most of the arch, whereas in the high angle group, the root resides only in part of the body, which according to Wolffs law will result in a less developed bone [29].. In orthodontic treatment, it is very important to understand how the development of the lower third of the face is closely linked to the dentoalveolar compensatory ...

Fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) play an essential role in development and patterning of the vertebrate embryo. Despite extensive literature documenting the diverse roles of FGF signalling during craniofacial development, comparatively little is known about the specific downstream effectors through which FGFs influence gene expression. A previous study in our laboratory reported exogenous FGF elicited differential chondrogenic responses in frontonasal and mandibular mesenchyme (Bobick et al., 2007). Pea3 transcription factors are crucial components of the downstream effector pathway through which FGFs influence gene expression (Raible and Brand, 2001). Therefore, the purpose of my research was to examine whether differences in pea3, erm, and er81 gene expression profiles underlie the distinct responses of the frontonasal and mandibular mesenchyme cells to FGF. The present study demonstrates that FGF2 treatment differentially affects chondrogenesis in micromass cultures of frontonasal and ...
Human mandible with teeth showing severe decay, dental abrasion and exposed dentine on the incisors as well as healing and remodeling over the molar sockets, with sex indicators leaning towards female, but undetermined.
Medical literature is not unified in the description of the morphology of the mental foramen. Different anatomy and radiology text books give contradicting statements regarding the morphometric characteristics of the mental foramen; thereby depicting variable racial trends. 6 Africans: The mental foramen was observed to exhibit dimorphism; it was 14.89 mm above the lower border of the mandible in males and 14.21 mm in females. Also, it was 16.16 mm below the alveolar ridge in males and 15.66 mm in females. The average size of the long and the short axis of the foramen were 5.66mm and 3.97mm respectively in the male and 4.99 mm and 3.87 mm respectively in the female mandibles.]12These measurements were statistically similar to another study on mandibles from Alagoas state.18 Tanzanians: The mental foramen was frequently located below the apex of the second premolar and between the 2 nd premolar and 1st molar. A significantly less common location was between 1 st and 2 nd premolars and below 1 st ...

Dental traumatic injuries may affect the teeth and alveolar bone directly or indirectly. Pulpal necrosis and chronic and apical periodontitis with cystic changes are the most common sequelae of the dental traumatic injuries, if the teeth are not treated immediately. This case report focuses on the conventional and surgical management of mandibular central incisors. A twenty-four-year-old male patient presented with pain in the mandibular central incisors. Radiographic examination revealed mandibular central incisors with dumbbell shaped periapical lesion. After root canal treatment, parendodontic surgery was performed for mandibular central incisors. After one-year recall examination, the teeth were asymptomatic and periapical lesion had healed.
Some anatomic patterns formed by the anterior border of the ascending ramus relative to the mandibular canal can cause nerve complications during surgery. We determined the frequency of obstructive anatomy in patients undergoing jaw surgery, and we described a perioperative method for a bilateral sagittal split osteotomy that ensured inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) protection. The anatomy of the anterior border of the ascending ramus of the mandible was examined on axial and cross-sectional cone beam computed tomographic images of 114 consecutive patients undergoing bilateral sagittal split osteotomies. The thickness of the anterior border of the ascending ramus determined whether the mandibular foramen could be visualized (pattern A) or was obscured (pattern B). Patients with pattern B anatomy received a perioperative procedure. Direct visualization of the mandibular foramen was achieved in 100% of patients with pattern A anatomy. We examined 228 anterior borders of the ascending ramus of the ...
Much effort has been devoted to finding methods for detecting individuals with low bone mass and risk of osteoporotic fractures. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether there is a relationship between the thickness of the alveolar process and the bone mineral density (BMD) of the distal forearm. In 24 women (38-65 years), the BMD of the distal forearm, obtained by dual X-ray absorptiometry, was correlated to the difference between two measures of the thickness of the mandibular alveolar process in the region of the first premolar. A highly significant correlation (r = 0.95, P, 0.001) was found. The method was cross-validated by using the equation obtained from the linear regression analysis above to predict BMD in two other groups. In both groups, the correlation between the measured BMD of the forearm and the predicted BMD was highly significant (r = 0.91, P, 0.001). The interdental thickness between the canine and the second incisor was also correlated to BMD, but with lower ...

ISSN 0375-1562. http://dx.doi.org/10.17159/2519-0105/2017/v72no9a2.. PURPOSE: To establish the position and shape of the lingula of the mandible in relation to the surrounding anatomical landmarks, data requisite for inferior alveolar nerve blocks and mandibular osteotomies.METHODS: Measurements were carried out on 201 sides from 113 adult dry mandibles.RESULTS: The most common shape of the lingula was truncated, found in 38.8% of cases, followed by the triangular (30.8 %), nodular (21.4%) and assimilated (8.9%) types. The average distances of the tip of the lingula from the anterior border, posterior border and sigmoid notch of the ramus of the mandible were 20.15mm, 16.77mm and 16.3mm respectively, and, from the mandibular second molar tooth, 33.3mm. The lingula was above the level of the occlusal plane in 63.7% of ...
The mandibular condyles represent important growth sites within the facial skeleton. Condylar growth is not a pacemaker of mandibular development, but it provides regional adaptive growth that is of considerable clinical significance, as the condyles upward and backward growth movement regulates the anteriorly and inferiorly directed displacement of the mandible as a whole.. Orthopedic problems of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), such as displacement of the TMJ disk, are common in the adolescent population. Clinical studies of mandibular asymmetry and mandibular retrognathia in adults as well as in children and adolescents, have reported an association with coexisting non-reducing displacement of the TMJ disk without identifying the cause and effect. Through experimental studies causality has been established, and unilateral affliction during growth has been shown to retard ipsilateral mandibular development with facial asymmetry as the sequel. It was hypothesized that bilateral non-reducing ...
DOI: 10.11607/jomi.6210 Purpose: To evaluate the relationship between mandibular bone structure parameters measured on preimplant cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) images and primary implant stability. Materials and Methods: Twenty-one hemimandibles were scanned on the 3D Accuitomo 170 CBCT. Next, an implant was placed in each hemimandible, after which insertion torque and implant stability quotient (ISQ) measurements were acquired. The following measurements were performed on the preimplant CBCT scans: bone surface, bone volume, fractal dimension, connectivity, trabecular thickness and spacing, and skeleton analysis. Measurements were performed using various regions of interest in the vicinity of the implant site. In addition, cortical thickness was measured. The correlation between bone structure parameters, insertion torque, and ISQ was calculated. Results: The overall correlation was low to medium (,R, = 0.002 0.723). For the bone around the entire implant site, the highest correlation ...

INTRODUCTION. Anatomical structures such as mylohyoid sulcus, lingula of the mandible and mandibular foramen are important in dental practice and allow the professional to execute surgical and anesthetic procedures with more safety and less damages (Reitzik et al., 1976; Figún & Garino, 1989; Minarelli & Ramalho, 1991; Carvalho et al., 2003; Madeira, 2004).. The interest in locating the mandibular foramen dates from the beginning of local anesthesia for the desensitization of the inferior alveolar nerve that enabled the advance of anesthetic techniques (Figún & Garino; Madeira). According to Marzola et al. (2005), the literature is scarce regarding the measurement parameters (anatomical reference points) for locating the mandibular foramen in the medial surface of the mandibular ramus, what would allow professionals to improve the anesthetic technique in the region.. With the physiological growth, the facial bones suffer a remodeling process, causing changes in the foramen position over the ...
The mandibular canal runs obliquely downward and forward in the ramus, and then horizontally forward in the body, where it is placed under the alveoli and communicates with them by small openings. On arriving at the incisor teeth, it turns back to communicate with the mental foramen, giving off two small canals which run to the cavities containing the incisor teeth. Carries branches of inferior alveolar nerve and artery. Is continuous with the mental foramen (opents onto front of mandible) and mandibular foramen (on medial aspect of ramus). ...
Fractures of the alveolar process of the mandible are uncommon. Unfortunately, their treatment is often fraught with problems, and uninitiated surgeons tend to underestimate these types of fractures and their problems.
Rodrigo Castellazzi Sella, Wagner José Silva Ursi, Karina Fancio Sella The second part of this paper aims to present the conceptual maps of measures relating to dental arches, apical bases, morphodifferential behavior of the mandibular incisor in relation to maxilla and mandible, as well as measurements that generate information about soft tissue profile. Based on USP - Baurus cephalometry book, we clarified how sela turcicas (turkish saddles) anatomical variations and frontonasal sutures anatomical variations can alter the numerical value of the measurements related to dental arches and apical bases, and could lead to a misdiagnoses of incisors inclination and positioning in their respective bone bases, as well as the possibility of anatomical variations in the frontonasal suture alter the numerical value of Line I and H.NB angle, which may lead to wrong conclusions..

Medical College, Vadodara, Gujarat.. 80 mandibles [40 dentulous and 40 edentulous] were examined for the position of mental foramen and angle of mandible. Radiological position of mandibular canal is studied and all findings compared with other authors. In present study -A) Dentulous mandible: position of mental foramen is. found midway between the borders of the body in 60% of the cases, in 28% cases, it is near the lower border, in 12% cases, it is near the upper border, angle of mandible found between 100 to 130 degrees.. B) Edentulous Mandible: in 84% cases, position of mental foramen is near upper border, in 13% of the cases position of mental foramen is midway between the upper and lower border, in 3% of the cases position of mental foramen is near the lower border, angle found between 120 to 140 degrees. All these observations suggest that as age advances,. in majority of the cases, mental foramen ...
Meckels cartilages are the cartilaginous precursors of the mandible. These cartilaginous bars of the first branchial arch become surrounded with a fibrous membrane. These membranous covered cartilage bars are attached to the otic or ear capsules at their proximal end and to each other via mesodermal tissue at their distal extremities. The only portion of Meckels cartilage that contributes to the mandible is the distal end. This end, invaded by bone, contributes to the part of the mandible between the two canine teeth. The major portion of the mandible forms intramembranously in the membrane surrounding Meckels cartilage. During the sixth week of embryonic life a center arises near what will be the mental foramen. By the tenth week the anterior portion of the cartilage is invaded by the developing bone. The bone continues to spread posteriorly and superiorly to form the mandibular outline. At birth the bone is in two halves, separated by a fibrous symphysis at the anterior midline. The two ...

The aim of the present study was to compare four methods of fixation in mandibular body fractures. Mechanical and photoelastic tests were performed using polyurethane and photoelastic resin mandibles, respectively. The study groups contained the following: (I), two miniplates of 2.0 mm; (II) one 2.0 mm plate and an Erich arch bar; (III) one 2.4 mm plate and an Erich arch bar, and (IV) one 2.0 mm plate and one 2.4 mm plate. The differences between the mean values were analyzed using Tukeys test, the Mann-Whitney test and the Bonferroni correction. Group II recorded the lowest resistance, followed by groups I, IV and III. The photoelastic test confirmed the increase of tension in group II. The 2.4 mm system board in linear mandibular body fractures provided more resistance and the use of only one 2.0 mm plate in the central area of the mandible created higher tension ...

The CXB set of recombinant inbred mouse strains provided an opportunity to observe the effects of reassorted subsets of genes on the shape of the mandible. The distances between 12 landmarks in all paired combinations were calculated to evaluate genetic control in small regions. The genetic relationships between interlandmark distances revealed genes to have most of their effects in localized regions, and the greater heritabilities usually to apply to those distances between adjacent landmarks. Interrelationships between measurements are usually explicable on a developmental basis. It is proposed that genes of this sort bring about the changes seen in organ shape during evolution. A model plan for the organization of gene activation during morphogenesis is described.

The purpose of this study was to determine the amount of space available distal to the most posterior tooth in the mandibular arch for complete arch distalization. Methods: CBCT scans from 146 (110 after exclusion criteria) patients were rendered using InVivo DentalTM Software. A 1:1 ratio panoramic image was reconstructed from each scan. A horizontal measurement, parallel to the functional occlusal plane, was recorded from the distal height of contour of the most posterior tooth to the ascending ramus. The advantages of using a CBCT reconstruction are: (1) A traditional panoramic radiograph uses an arbitrary focal trough; (2) There is inherent error and distortion due to the magnification in the traditional panoramic radiograph; (3) The magnification from traditional radiographs makes measurements very unreliable; (4) Contrast is improved with CBCT and blurring and overlapping is eliminated. Results: There was an average of 7.27 mm [7.24 mm (left) and 7.29 mm (right)] distal to lower second ...

Whether or not there is an increase in size or acceleration of growth of the mandible is one of the major controversies in functional appliance therapy. Although many researchers have claimed that the FR causes extra mandibular growth, this study showed that there were no significant differences between the FR and control groups as far as mandibular movement is concerned, the mean FR movement being 4.1 mm, standard deviation 3.0 mm; the control 5.0 mm, and standard deviation 2.6 mm. As the 5.0-mm change in the control was due to normal growth, it can be assumed that the 4.1-mm change in the FR group was no more than normal growth rather than any effect of the appliance. The maximum value seen in the control was 14.2 mm and for the FR it was 12.8 mm; again, because this change in the controls was due to normal growth it must be assumed that even the maximum FR change was no more than normal growth change. That the size of the mandible is unaffected with the FR is supported by evidence from ...

Mandibular prognathism is a dentofacial deformity, in which the most pronounced feature is mandibular anterior excess. Unfavorable psychosocial effect deriving from unaesthetic facial appearance is the major indication for treatment of dentofacial deformities but other important factors are disturbed mastication, speech, pain and temporomandibular joint dysfunction. Bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO) is a popular technique among several methods utilized in tratment of dentofacial deformities including mandibular prognathism. The aim of this paper was the evaluation of impact of surgical correction of mandibular prognathism with use of BSSO on self-assessment of facial esthetics, mastication, general health, social interactions in conjunction with improvement of wellbeing. The material was the medical records of 54 patients treated for mandibular prognathism in The Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at The Medical University of Lublin. Two questionnaires and one psychological ...
Background Crocodilians exhibit a spectrum of rostral shape from long snouted (longirostrine), through to short snouted (brevirostrine) morphologies. The proportional length of the mandibular symphysis correlates consistently with rostral shape, forming as much as 50% of the mandibles length in longirostrine forms, but 10% in brevirostrine crocodilians. Here we analyse the structural consequences of an elongate mandibular symphysis in relation to feeding behaviours. Methods/Principal Findings Simple beam and high resolution Finite Element (FE) models of seven species of crocodile were analysed under loads simulating biting, shaking and twisting. Using beam theory, we statistically compared multiple hypotheses of which morphological variables should control the biomechanical response. Brevi- and mesorostrine morphologies were found to consistently outperform longirostrine types when subject to equivalent biting, shaking and twisting loads. The best predictors of performance for biting and twisting
Purpose of the study : This study aimed to determine the height at which both the lateraland medial cortical bone layers of mandibular ramus merge, using a reference point on theanterior margin of the mandibular ramus and comparing with lingula as anotherreference point, using cone beam computed tomography, thus establishing an effectivemethod of determining the level of the horizontal cut of sagittal split osteotomy.Material and Methods: The mandibular ramus of 15 patients were analysed on a threedimensional (3D) model constructed using Cone Beam Computed Tomography. Starting atreference point (A), a line was marked from the anterior border of the ramus of mandibletill the posterior border on lateral surface. On three vertical section of the ramus (1/3rd and 2/3rd and lingula), the level at which both lingual and buccal cortices meet weredetermined- A1 and A2 and L respectively.The results of the study showed that mean height of fusion of medial and lateral cortices at1/3rd and 2/3rd and lingula were 8
The aim of this investigation was to examine the effects of experimental occlusal hypofunction, and recovery, on mandibular bone mineral density (BMD) using peripheral quantitative computed tomography.. A metal cap was inserted between the upper and lower incisors of 40 male Wistar rats (aged 6 weeks) to prevent the molars from biting. The rats were divided into two equal groups: hypofunction and recovery animals. In addition, there was a third group comprising 20 control animals. The recovery animals were anaesthetized at 4 weeks in order to remove the metal cap using pliers. The rats were killed under deep anaesthesia, after which the mandibles were immediately removed and fixed in 10 per cent neutral formalin. After 2, 4, 6, and 8 weeks, BMD was measured in the cancellous and cortical bone in the first molar region. Data were analysed using one-way analysis of variance.. At 6 and 8 weeks, in the hypofunction group, cancellous bone density decreased on the buccal and lingual sides, at the ...
In 1879 my colleague Mr Shattock described in this Journal (vol. xiv. p- 201) a case in which Meckels cartilage had undergone ossification between the mandible and the malleus. I have been able to find no record of a similar case; but recently, when investigating two specimens from the museum representing certain malformations of the tongue, I found that Meckels cartilage was ossified in the manner described by Mr Shattock. His specimen was obtained from a case of achondroplasia; one of mine came from a deformed fcetus (fig. 1), and the other from an anencephalic foetus (tig. 2). In fig. 1 the two bars of bone, which I regard as ossifications of Meckels cartilage, are attached to the symphyseal or incisor part of the mandible on each side and articulate behind with a strong processus gracilis of the malleus (see 3). One margin of the bone is free, its other margin is closely united to the inner side of the mandible by fibrous tissue. In fig. 2 the Meckelian bars are shorter and covered with a ...

When at least one cephalograms (such as the lateral cephalogram 10 and the posteroanterior cephalogram 12) are in use, the anatomical features and landmarks of the cephalograms have to be drawn on tracing papers, thereby obtaining tracings (such as the tracing 20 and the tracing 22). The so-called landmarks stand for a set of feature points defined from anatomical viewpoints for use in marking an anatomical structure, and can be used for analyzing the geometrical features of the anatomical structure, such as landmarks S, Po, Na, PNS, UIA, ANS, A, MI, LIE, UIE, LIA, B, Pog, Gn, Me, etc. as shown in FIG. 1c. Those landmarks are well known to those who are ...
The Meckelian Cartilage, also known as Meckels Cartilage, is a piece of cartilage from which the mandibles (lower jaws) of vertebrates evolved. Originally it was the lower of two cartilages which supported the first branchial arch in early fish. Then it grew longer and stronger, and acquired muscles capable of closing the developing jaw.[1]. In early fish and in chondrichthyans (cartilaginous fish such as sharks), the Meckelian Cartilage continued to be the main component of the lower jaw. But in the adult forms of osteichthyans (bony fish) and their descendants (amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals), the cartilage was covered in bone - although in their embryos the jaw initially develops as the Meckelian Cartilage. In all tetrapods the cartilage partially ossifies (changes to bone) at the rear end of the jaw and becomes the articular bone, which forms part of the jaw joint in all tetrapods except mammals.[1]. In some extinct mammal groups like eutriconodonts, the Meckels cartilage still ...
Final inclination (|95 degrees ) and free gingival-margin thickness (|0.5 mm) showed greater and more severe recession on the mandibular central incisors. Nevertheless, when comparing thickness to the final inclination, thickness had greater relevance to recession.
Sagittal split osteotomy (SSO) is a surgical technique largely employed for mandibular mobilizations in orthognatic procedures. However, the traditional design of buccal osteotomy, located at the junction of mandibular ramus and body, may prevent more extensive sliding between the bone segments, particularly on the advance, laterality and verticality of the mandibular body. The author proposes a new technical and conceptual solution, in which osteotomy is performed in a more distal region, next to the mental formamen. Technically, the area of contact between medullary-cancellous bone surfaces is increased, resulting in larger sliding rates among bone segments; it also facilitates the use of rigid fixation systems, with miniplates and monocortical screws. Conceptually, it interferes with the resistance arm of the mandible, seen as an interpotent lever of the third gender.
Background: In forensic science the identification of a human is based on three important factors: Age, Sex and Stature. Bones are an important tool for it and among human bones the pelvis and the skull are the most reliable source for sex determination. In the absence of complete pelvis, mandi-ble becomes the important source for sex determination since mandible is the most durable and movable part of skull that can resist postmortem changes. The present study is conducted to assess the accuracy and role of few metric and morphological parameters in determination of the sex of dry adult human mandible of North Indian origin. Material & Methods: The Study is conducted on 50 dry intact human adult mandibles of North Indian origin. The metric parameters i.e. bigonial breadth, bicondylar breadth are measured with a Vernier Calliper by two observers. Non-metric parameters being observed are the morphological features like gonion flaring, muscular markings and shape of angle of symphysis menti. Result &
Background and Objectives: Mandibular incisors anatomy presents a challenge when making endodontic access because of its small size and high prevalence of two canals and isthmus within them. The main objective of this study is to evaluate the root canal anatomy and its aberrant morphology in mandibular central incisors. Knowing the variations in canal anatomy such as two canals, presence of isthmus, type, its prevalence, and position in the mandibular central incisors, which help improve the procedure of successful root canal treatment. Materials and Methods: One hundred and twenty extracted human mandibular central incisor teeth were collected. Two different studies have been performed. Sixty teeth were studied through tooth clearing and dye penetration technique. Teeth were decalcified with 5% nitric acid, dehydrated with increasing concentrations of alcohol and rendered clear by immersion in methyl salicylate. Hematoxylin dye was inserted in access cavity and canals. The samples were ...

It was found that the risk of mandibular angle fracture was highest (61.93%) with low trauma forces in comparison to moderate (32.53%) and high (5.53%) trauma forces. There was high significant difference (P > 0.01) in association with the impact of trauma force and number selleck compound of fracture site [Table 1]. The relative risk of mandibular angle fracture was found to be highest with partially erupted third molar (47.75%), followed by erupted (23.53%) and unerupted third molar (19.38%). Risk of mandibular angle fracture was least (9.34%) if mandibular third molar was absent. However all the mandibular third molar were significant at 1% level of significance [Table 2]. Moreover, the highest risk for mandibular angle fracture was reported with mesioangular angulations (45.42%) followed by vertical (26.. 34%), distoangular in sequence and least risk was found with bucco-version angulations (2.67%) according to Winters classification. Additionally, the highest risk for angle fracture was ...

Chapter 2. Variations in Transition of Mandibular Incisors*. 2.1 Introduction The mandible precedes the maxilla in the transition of the incisors. The first deciduous tooth to be lost - the mandibular central incisor - is exfoliated about 1 year earlier than the corresponding maxillary incisor.. The tooth-containing parts of the mandible differ markedly from those in the maxilla in size, shape, and structure. Consequently, the transition of the mandibular incisors differs from that of the maxillary incisors. In the mandible less space is available for the crowns of the not-yet-erupting permanent teeth and the roots of the deciduous and permanent ones than in the maxilla. Further, the mandible does not have an interstitial growth site in the form of a midsagittal suture that can contribute to an increased transverse jaw dimension in the median plane. The aforementioned differences partly explain why the transition of incisors in the mandible varies less than that in the maxilla.. The combination ...

A chin that sags over the line of the jaw (chin bone) is called chin ptosis. (ptosis is medically defined as a sagging of a body part) While some people have this naturally, most of the time it is due to the soft tissues of the chin sliding downward for a reason. This can occur from simple aging, loss of ones lower front teeth, and due to different surgical procedures of the chin. A few people actually have pseudo- or perceived chin ptosis which occurs as a result of a natural deep crease below the lower lip (submental crease) which makes the chin look ptotic (particularly when smiling) even though it is not. Successful correction of chin ptosis can usually be done for those problems caused by prior surgeries. Chin surgeries that are well known to cause soft tissue sagging include the intraoral placement of implants, removal of an overly large implant and bony reductions. Other less common causes include intraoral access for repair of mandibular symphysis and parasymphyseal fractures and ...
Tyrannoneustes lythrodectikos is one of numerous metriorhynchid crocodylomorph species known from the Oxford Clay Formation of England (Callovian-Oxfordian; Middle-Late Jurassic). This taxon is of evolutionary importance, as it is the oldest and most basal known macrophagous metriorhynchid. It has a mosaic of plesiomorphic and derived feeding related characteristics, including: teeth with microscopic, poorly formed and non-contiguous denticles; increased tooth apicobasal length; ventrally displaced dentary tooth row (increased gape); reduced dentary tooth count; and a proportionally long mandibular symphysis. However the type specimen, and current referred specimens, all lack a preserved cranium. As such, the craniofacial morphology of this taxon, and its potential feeding ecology, remains poorly understood. Here we describe two skulls and two lower jaws which we refer to T. lythrodectikos. Previously these specimens were referred to Metriorhynchus brachyrhynchus. They share with the T. lythrodectikos
The present study developed the system for integrating morphological coordinates obtained with dental computer tomography and jaw movement coordinates acquired with a mandibular movement measuring device in order to enable multipoint analysis of anatomical condylar movements to be performed. The incisal paths as well as masseter and anterior temporal muscle activity were simultaneously recorded in orthodontic patients to elucidate the adaptation of TMJ after orthodontic treatment. The results suggested that adaptive bone remodeling of the TMJ might occur due to the correction of occlusion and craniofacial morphology in patients with mandibular protrusion and maxillary protrusion. Main occluding area in patients with mandibular protrusion was located in the upper first molar and the lower second molar. Spee curvature related to the posterior slope of articular eminence in the patients with maxillary protrusion. ...
The retromolar space (RMS), defined in paleoanthropology as a space posterior to the third molar, between the distal edge of the tooth and the anterior margin of the ascending ramus when the mandible is held in lateral view, has been described as an autapomorphic trait unique to Neandertals despite its presence in anatomically modern humans (AMHs). This study examined RMS prevalence in a sample of Protohistoric Arikara and Mandan Amerindians to determine what craniofacial morphology is correlated with the RMS. It was hypothesized that the feature would be present in the Amerindians studied and associated with a long cranial length, a large nasal height, midfacial prognathism, a broad mandible, and dental wear. The results indicated that RMSs were present in the Arikara and Mandan and significantly correlated with cranial length, cranial breadth, nasal height, bizygomatic breadth, basion-nasion length, basion-nasiospinale, mandible length, gonial angle, bigonial breadth, and dental wear. Thus, ...

This four-part video demonstration is of an isolated neck lift, a procedure indicated in patients with cervical obliquity and bands, in which the soft tissues of the cheek and jawline are well supported by the facial retaining ligaments. I perform isolated neck lifts through postauricular incisions, as well as a submental incision which allows access to contouring the anterior platysma. The dissection is begun laterally through the postauricular incision towards the midline of the neck, dissecting in the subcutaneous plane along the innerface between preplatysmal fat and the underlying platysma muscle. This allows the surgeon to keep the preplatysmal fat intact and vascularized on the cervical skin flap. After performing a similar dissection on the contralateral side, a submental incision is made caudal to the submental skin crease, and the dermal attachments of the crease are dissected from the mandibular symphysis. A through-and-through dissection of the neck is then completed. Preplatysmal ...

A total of 443 hydroxyapatite-coated cylindrical implants were placed into the posterior mandibles of consenting patients from July 1985 through December 1991. Implants were placed into ridges that had sufficient bone volume. Implants were also placed in ridges with thin bone, grafted bone, or immediate extraction sites, which occasionally resulted in increased morbidity. All were followed yearly with clinical and radiographic examinations. Life table analyses were performed using SAS software. Ten-year cumulative survival and nonmorbid (based on bone loss criteria) rates were determined for the four posterior tooth locations and for all posterior locations combined. Cumulative survival for implants was 0.858 ± 0.056 in the first premolar region, 0.833 ± 0.041 for the second premolar region, 0.785 ± 0.041 for the first molar region, and 0.718 ± 0.064 for the second molar region. When all posterior mandibular locations were taken together, the cumulative survival was 0.793 ± 0.025. ...
Discussion The mental foramen has been used as a point of reference in morphometric analyses of the mandible, by virtue of its stable relation with the base of this bone (Neiva et al., 2004). In this study, the mean values of the distances between the image of the mental foramen and the mandible base (D1), and of this foramen to the alveolar crest (D2) had no statistically significant differences between the analyzed age groups, confirming the stability of this relation throughout the individuals adult life. The mean values of R1 (D1/D2) did not differ statistically between the four studied groups indicating that it is constant. There are records in the literature that the stability of D1 not depend on the reabsorption of the alveolar process in the region above of the foramen, and that the vertical measurements in panoramic radiography are clinically applicable for quantification of the height of the alveolar bone in this region (Lindh et al.; Güller et al.). The mean values of the ratios ...
Cell-generated mechanical forces play a critical role during tissue morphogenesis and organ formation in the embryo. Despite their relevance in sculpting functional embryonic structures, very little is known about the mechanisms by which cellular forces affect/control developmental processes, mainly because it has not been possible to measure cellular forces within developing tissues in vivo. In this talk, I will present a new technique that permits direct quantification of cellular mechanical stresses in situ within living tissues and developing organs. Using this novel technique, we quantify the stresses generated by mammary epithelial cells cultured within 3D aggregates (3.4 nN/µm2) and confirm that these stresses are dependent on myosin II activity and more than two-fold larger than the stresses generated by cells of embryonic tooth mesenchyme when analyzed within similar cultured aggregates or in developing whole mouse mandibles.. ...

So where does Oryctodromeus figure in all this? Well surprisingly not that close to any of the other groups mainly due to a ventral expansion along the posterior border of the scapula blade. The authors hypothesise that since this is the attachment site for the deltoideus muscle there is a chance that this can be seen as an adaption for digging since extant mammals that burrow today use that very same muscle. I asked the other question that has bugged the burrowing dinosaur theory - was there enough flexibility in the tail for the animal to be able to turn in such a tight area? Jamie Fearon believes that there probably was although she took great pains to point out they were only looking at the forelimb in this current study. ...
