Chewing cycle kinematics of subjects with deepbite malocclusion.
INTRODUCTION The notion that chewing cycle shape and cycle dynamics differ between subjects with and without malocclusion is largely based on qualitative studies that combined various types ofExpand

Bolus size and unilateral chewing cycle kinematics.
The purpose of this study was to determine how bolus size alters the human chewing cycle. This prospective within-subject design evaluated chewing cycles of 38 young adults between 20 and 38 years ofExpand

Transforming growth factor‐beta 3(Tgf‐β3) in a collagen gel delays fusion of the rat posterior interfrontal suture in vivo
Postnatal expansion of the intramembranous bones of the craniofacial skeleton occurs as bone growth at sutures. Loss of the bone growth site occurs when the suture fails to form, or when the newlyExpand

Reducing within-subject variation in chewing cycle kinematics--a statistical approach.
OBJECTIVES High levels of within-subject variability have limited the use of chewing cycle kinematics in the experimental and clinical context. The purpose of this study was to validate a newExpand

Effects of bolus size and hardness on within-subject variability of chewing cycle kinematics.
This study analysed how bolus hardness and size affect within-subject variability of chewing cycle kinematics. Two independent prospective studies were performed; both tracked chin movements using anExpand

Effect of an auditory cue on chewing cycle kinematics.
OBJECTIVES This study analysed the systematic and random effects of a rhythmic auditory cue on chewing cycle kinematics. METHODS The chin movements of 25 subjects (19-35 years of age) with normalExpand

Digital plaque imaging evaluation of a stabilized stannous fluoride dentifrice compared with a triclosan/copolymer dentifrice.
PURPOSE To compare the relative plaque control efficacy of a marketed 0.454% stabilized stannous fluoride (SnF2) dentifrice relative to a triclosan/copolymer dentifrice using digital plaque imagingExpand

Bioactive materials improve some physical properties of a MTA-like cement.
One of the main disadvantages of MTA is its long setting time which could result in higher solubility and microleakage, producing a failed treatment. Studies have shown that the addition of bioactiveExpand
