  • occlusal
  • Secondly, the possible negative modulation initiation of jaw occlusal muscle movement and hence biting forces stimulated by sensory receptors activation inside the periodontium, and the probable deterrence of a major +ive modulation of jaw occlusal muscle movement and therefore chewing forces also activated by such receptors [12, 13, (medicaljb.com)
  • One dental textbook defines it as: "Dollicofacial, there is excess of lower facial height usually associated with lower occlusal and mandibular plane angles. (wikipedia.org)
  • tooth
  • Among the other types of tooth movement, Dermaut and De Pauw 9 stressed the importance of intrusion of incisors in adults for whom bite opening is a goal. (blogspot.com)
  • Place the tooth back in the socket where it was lost from, taking care to place it the correct way (matching the other tooth) Encourage the patient to bite on a handkerchief to hold the tooth in position. (wikipedia.org)

  • clinical
  • Moyers and Riolo 8 reported that deep bite, as a clinical problem, is not defined in terms of millimeters present today, but in the light of future changes in esthetics and function. (blogspot.com)
  • facial
  • Body mass index, bite force, facial type. (medicaljb.com)
  • Maximal bite force (MBF) is the utmost force obtainable within the mouth using muscles of mastication .The purpose behind current research was to analyze the link between MBF & body properties (namely age, height, weight, Facial height, Facial Width, and Body Mass Index [BMI]) amongst females. (medicaljb.com)
  • ANOVA test revealed a very highly significant difference in Facial high, maximum bite force, while the Facial width showed a highly significant. (medicaljb.com)
  • There were Positive correlation of BMI with the Maximum Bite Force & with the weight in all facial types. (medicaljb.com)
  • mandible
  • They believed that the mandible would be engaged more if the bite is opened more. (wikipedia.org)
  • Thus mandible is only brought forward by 2-3mm but vertically the bite is opened by at least 7-8mm. (wikipedia.org)
  • To grind the front teeth, most people need to posture their mandible forwards, unless there is an existing edge to edge, class III incisal relationship. (wikipedia.org)
  • He was the first person in 1880 to introduce the concept of "jumping the bite for patients with a retruded mandible. (wikipedia.org)
  • This effectively allows the open bite to close as mandible rotates counter-clockwise. (wikipedia.org)
  • Facemask or reverse-pull headgear is an orthodontic appliance typically used in growing patients to correct underbites (technically termed Class-III orthodontic problems) by pulling forward and assisting the growth of the upper jaw (maxilla), allowing it to catch up to the size of the lower jaw (mandible). (wikipedia.org)
  • This involves prevention of any eruption of posterior molars because their eruption would lead to mandible moving downwards and backwards which would cause worsening of a Class II malocclusion and increase in the lower facial height. (wikipedia.org)
  • Unilateral crossbites can present with following features in a child Lower midline deviation to the crossbite side Class 2 Subdivision relationships Temporomandibular disorders A child with posterior crossbite should be treated immediately if the child shifts his mandible on closing which is often seen in a unilateral crossbite as mentioned above. (wikipedia.org)
  • overjet
  • The most favorable morphologic factors for serial extraction include class 1 malocclusion, a favorable morphogenetic pattern - one that does not change, a flush terminal plane or a mesial step relationship of the primary second molars, minimum overjet and minimum overbite. (wikipedia.org)
  • Class III: Mesiocclusion (prognathism, Anterior crossbite, negative overjet, underbite) In this case the upper molars are placed not in the mesiobuccal groove but posteriorly to it. (wikipedia.org)
  • maxillary
  • Also, a total maxilla osteotomy is used to treat the "long face syndrome," known as the skeptical open bite, idiopathic long face, hyper divergent face, total maxillary alveolar hyperplasia, and vertical maxillary excess. (wikipedia.org)
  • diagnosis
  • Because of this wide range of views, all in striking detail, CBCTs are highly useful among other things for diagnosis of malocclusions (bad bites), the size and location of infections, obstructions at possible implant sites, or jaw problems prior to surgery. (chroustdental.com)
  • anterior
  • Kingsley was also known for his work related to the vulcanite palatal plate which consisted of anterior incline which allowed a person to bite forward with their lower jaw. (wikipedia.org)
  • This will lead to anterior crossbite where upon biting, upper teeth are behind the lower front teeth and may involve few or all frontal incisors. (wikipedia.org)
  • Another term for an anterior crossbite due to dental interferences is Pseudo Class III Crossbite or Malocclusion. (wikipedia.org)
  • occlusion
  • A major disadvantage of classifying malocclusions according to Angle's system is that it only takes into consideration the two-dimensional viewing along a spatial axis in the sagittal plane in the terminal occlusion, even though occlusion problems are, in principle, three-dimensional. (wikipedia.org)
  • sagittal
  • This type of construction bite involves significant changes in the sagittal or Anterio-Posterior dimension. (wikipedia.org)
  • dental
  • The Indian Dental Academy is the Leader in continuing dental education , training dentists in all aspects of dentistry and offering a wide range of dental certified courses in different formats. (slideshare.net)
  • Because the field of DSM is undertaught in dental schools 2-4 and many well-known advanced education venues for dentistry are managed by educators who may know very little about DSM, these venues are at the mercy of their lecturers who may be biased in the presentation of information possibly based on commercial interests or outdated information.

  • A dental 3D image allows dentist to view tooth anatomy from different angles. (cmesociety.com)
  • Angle contributed greatly to the design of orthodontic and dental appliances, making many simplifications. (wikipedia.org)
  • She reported that closed bite and dental open are two of the syndrome's variants. (wikipedia.org)
  • Crossbite is a form of malocclusion where a tooth (or teeth) has a more buccal or lingual position (that is, the tooth is either closer to the cheek or to the tongue) than its corresponding antagonist tooth in the upper or lower dental arch. (wikipedia.org)
  • occur
  • Other parafunctional activity which may occur together with bruxism: cheek biting (which may manifest as morsicatio buccarum and/or linea alba), and/or lip biting. (wikipedia.org)
  • degree angle
  • Brushing should be conducted at least 2-3 times per day at a 45 degree angle in a back and forth motion. (colgate.com)
  • Place the brush at a 45 degree angle to the gums and gently brush using a small, circular motion, ensuring that you always feel the bristles on the gums. (franklinvilledental.com)
  • growth
  • Other classes of functional appliances include removable appliances and over the head appliances, and these functional appliances are used to redirect jaw growth. (wikipedia.org)
  • lower
  • These two appliances interlock at an angle, and they move your lower jaw forward and lock it into the ideal position when you bite together. (wikipedia.org)
  • gently brush
  • Be sure to angle the toothbrush at the gum line and then gently brush around the brackets to remove plaque and food debris. (colgate.com)
