The effect of balancing-side occlusal contact patterns on ipsilateral TMJ dynamics was evaluated in this study. Vertical displacement of the balancing-side lower second molar during clenching at canine edge-to-edge position, with 0 and 1 mm of inter-canine distance, was measured for 42 normal subjects in relation to their balancing-side occlusal contact.(More)
Not only forces but also torque exerted on abutment teeth are important factors for planning the construction of distal extension removable partial dentures. The purpose of this study was to make longitudinal analysis of torque transmitted from denture base to a direct abutment tooth of these dentures with circumferential clasps. The results are summarized(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine longitudinal changes of the occlusal force distribution in lower distal-extension removable partial dentures with the conus crown telescopic system. Occlusal force applied to the denture and forces transmitted to the retainers were measured on several separate occasions from the insertion of new dentures to about 3(More)
OBJECTIVES The present study was conducted to examine whether the standardized uptake value (SUV) may be affected by the spatial position of a lesion in the radial direction on positron emission tomography (PET) images, obtained via two methods based on time-of-flight (TOF) reconstruction and point spread function (PSF). METHODS A cylinder phantom with(More)
