A longitudinal retrospective study using thin-plate spline analysis was used to investigate skeletal Class III etiology in Japanese female adolescents. Headfilms of 40 subjects were chosen from the archives of the Orthodontic department at Niigata University Dental Hospital, and were traced at IIIB and IVA Hellman dental ages. Twenty-eight homologous(More)
The periodontal Ruffini ending has been reported to show immunoreactivity for tyrosine kinase B (trkB), the high-affinity receptor for brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), in the periodontal ligament of the rat incisor. Furthermore, adult heterozygous BDNF-mutant mice showed malformation and reduction of the periodontal Ruffini endings. To investigate(More)
This study was undertaken to evaluate the relationship between bilateral condylar bone change (BCBC) and mandibular morphology. Thirty Japanese women with BCBC as diagnosed from computed tomographic scans were compared to 2 control groups: 26 Class I and 25 Class II Japanese women. All cephalograms were traced and scanned, and 14 homologous landmarks were(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the relationships between occlusal curvature (OC) and frontal craniofacial morphology in patients with and without temporomandibular disorders (TMD), using frontal cephalograms and a sophisticated measuring device (XYZAX S400A). Thirty-seven female orthodontic patients (mean age 24.0 years) were divided into a TMD(More)
Innervation and terminal morphology in the lingual periodontal ligament of the incisor were investigated in brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) heterozygous mice and littermate wild-type mice (aged two months) using immunohistochemistry for protein gene product 9.5 (PGP 9.5), a general neuronal marker. In addition, computer-assisted quantitative(More)
