The aims of this investigation were to study the relation between facial morphology and bite force at different ages during growth and to investigate possible relations between bite force and the variables age, finger force, stature, and sex in growing healthy individuals. One hundred and thirty-six individuals were included, consisting of six groups of(More)
The aim of this study was to develop and apply a reliable method of measuring the effects of condylar lesions quantitatively on panoramic radiographs. Three different types of machines were tested. Two dry skulls were exposed in six positions in each machine, and the relative size of the condyle in relation to ramus height was calculated. The results showed(More)
Studies of the development of mastication in the normal growing individual have received little attention in the literature. The aim of this study was to determine whether changes in oral motor function occurred during growth. Ninety healthy individuals with normal occlusion were divided into six groups of males and females, 9-10, 13-15, and 20-22 years of(More)
The aim of this project was to study possible influences of Turner syndrome (TS) karyotype and the number of X chromosomes with intact short arm (p-arm) on dental crown width. Primary and permanent mesio-distal crown width was measured on plaster casts from 112 TS females. The influence on crown width of four karyotypes: 1. monosomy (45,X), 2. mosaic(More)
The aim of this project was to study the impact on craniofacial morphology from Turner syndrome (TS) karyotype, number of intact X chromosomal p-arms, and age as well as to compare craniofacial morphology in TS with healthy females. Lateral radiographs from 108 females with TS, ranging from 5.4 to 61.6 years, were analysed. The TS females were divided into(More)
