Bite force is the condition, expression and measure of the masticatory function. The purpose of this study was to examine, by means of a newly constructed electronic gnathodynamometer, the values of maximal bite forces in subjects with complete dentition, the time in which they express 50% and 75% respectively of the total forces value, and the shape of the(More)
Although the literature reports that occlusal disorders can be associated with temporomandibular disorders (TMD), their direct scientific correlation is still mainly unproved. The aim of this study was to establish the incidence of symptoms and signs of TMD and tissue-specific diagnoses in a population of subjects with tooth loss in the supporting zones.(More)
Introduction Temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) include a heterogenous group of disorders of the temporo-mandibular joints (TMJs) and masticatory muscles. The most frequent symptoms of these disorders are pain and pathological sounds in TMJ during man-dibular movement (1, 2). Pathological sounds in TMJ can be classified as clicking and crepitation (3).(More)
The diagnostic procedure and the initial treatment of a female patient suffering from temporomandibular disorder is described. Osteoarthritis and the discopathy of the temporomandibular joint were diagnosed both clinically and by magnetic resonance imaging. Anxiety was confi rmed by measuring instrument State-Trait Anxiety Inventory. Pains in(More)
Since dental/orofacial injuries were the commonest type of injuries sustained during participation in sports activities in the 1980s, when it was apparent that one third of dental injuries was due to sporting involvement , with the remainder being due to accidents, especially at home, the role of the dental profession in relation to dental/orofacial sports(More)
AIM The objective of this study was to investigate the prevalence of anterior disk displacement and condyle position in volunteers free from clinical symptoms and signs of temporomandibular disorders. MATERIAL AND METHODS Bilateral parasagittal T1-weighted magnetic resonance images of temporomandibular joints (TMJ) in 25 asymptomatic volunteers (age range(More)
Uvod Muskuloskeletalni poremećaji žvačnog sustava obuhvaćeni su, na temelju kliničkih stanja koja uzro-kuju, skupnim nazivom temporomandibularni pore-mećaji. Suvremene defi nicije temporomandibularnih poremećaja smatraju se skupom različitih kliničkih problema u žvačnom mišićju, čeljusnom zglobu ili oboje (American Academy of Orofacial Pain, 1996) (1) ili(More)
The aim of this study was to register and measure lower jaw movements, to analyse the measured length of opening and closing movements and to analyse the rotational mandibular capacity during the maximal opening of the mouth in the position of centric relation. Our objective was to determine the average values for each mandible and temporomandibular joint(More)
Analysis was made of 44 solid casts of toothless lower jaws. Stereophotogrammetry, a measurement procedure in photogrammetry, was used as a method in the measurement of solid casts. Adequate instruments and method of measurement made it possible to objectify anatomical and morphological structures of toothless lower jaws. The anterior width of the ridge in(More)
Beside the already analysed bioanthropometric characteristics of the lower jaw, additional measurement of parameters insufficiently discussed in reference literature were performed in our study. On the basis of the obtained data it was possible to define relevant biometrical relations in the region of the lower jaw branch and anatomical regions that are(More)
