Solid state components were used to construct a miniature bite force recorder suitable for registrations in large study groups. A semiconductor was chosen as the sensory unit. The complete recording system included a power supply, the bite force recorder, a chart recorder and a millivoltmeter. Laboratory calibration tests were performed to screen the(More)
Elastomeric impression materials for fixed prosthodontics are considered most stable when they have an even thickness of 2 to 4 mm. To obtain this, a custom-made impression tray is recommended. The purpose of the present study was to compare the stability of impressions made in custom trays and trays made of chromium-plated brass. The impression materials(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to evaluate the clinical performance of four denture soft liners up to 12 months. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-three edentulous patients who experienced difficulties when using hard denture bases because of changes in denture-supporting tissues were accepted for the study and randomly received Molloplast B, GC(More)
The characteristics of the masseter reflex evoked by tapping a maxillary incisor were compared with the reflex pattern evoked by tapping a corresponding denture tooth after insertion of an immediate denture. Up to three inhibitory phases (I-1, I-2 and I-3), followed by excitation, were found on an averaged EMG. The tapping force threshold for the early(More)
The maximal bite force was recorded between antagonizing anterior teeth in a group (n = 10) of patients with pathologic attrition and in a control group. No statistically significant difference between the maximal bite forces was recorded. Also, the effect on the maximal bite force of the continuous wearing of a partial bite raising splint for 4 months was(More)
Complete maxillary dentures were tested for their ability to remain in place when subjected to unilateral occlusal loads. The test material comprised five persons, each supplied with three identical dentures. The denture design was based on the principles of 1) functionally determined filling-in of the vestibular sulcus, 2) palatal coverage to the vibration(More)
The influence of free tongue, lip, and cheek function on the retention of complete maxillary dentures was investigated for five experienced denture wearers. Test dentures were designed with full palatal coverage and functionally determined filling in of the vestibular sulcus. The front teeth were arranged primarily to meet cosmetic demands--that is,(More)
The influence of complete maxillary denture design on retention was studied under clinical conditions simulating chewing. Five persons with an edentulous maxilla and a natural dentition of at least 10 teeth in the mandible participated. Retention was measured with a miniature bite force sensor. The occlusal load required to provoke denture dislodgement was(More)
