Use of hybrid dentures for the rehabilitation of edentulous patient as compared to conventional complete denture has multiple advantages like improved masticatory
efficiency, retention and patient comfort.9 It is a cost-effective option when compared to fixed partial dentures which usually required more number of implants.
Members of the genus Myotis represent an excellent model to examine changes in the masticatory
apparatus morphology associated to the evolution of piscivory from insectivorous ancestors (Lewis-Oritt et al., 2001).
In this same line of reasoning of extra-oral alterations and muscle interdependence, some authors mention that the contraction of the masticatory
muscles is associated with the increase of the electrical activity of the trapezium and sternocleidomastoid muscles, mainly in the existence of a chewing side preference [7,8].
Then the masticatory
mucus was palpated for any tenderness and muscle trismus.
These forces are generated due to interaction of masticatory
PT includes a large number of modalities to treat TMD pain secondary to inflammation, masticatory
muscle pain, TMJ hypo/hypermobility, disc displacement, bruxism, and fibrous adhesion .
The initial effects of occlusal splint vertical thickness on the nocturnal EMG activities of masticatory
muscles in subjects with a bruxism habit.
Influence of pre-orthodontic trainer treatment on the perioral and masticatory
muscles in patients with Class II division 1 malocclusion.
In addition, they exhibited several oral symptoms along with decreased masticatory
experiment could not exceed 60 minutes.
Stress distribution around teeth and masticatory
forces involving periodontal tissue and replacing dental material is a quite debated topic in the recent literature [1, 4, 7, 15-22].
The vertical force is the normal chewing ability (masticatory
