The present study was designed to investigate the elastic modulus of human temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disk under tension and its influences on TMJ loading. Seven human TMJ disks served as specimens. Continuous tensile stress was applied to each specimen, and the elastic moduli of human TMJ disks were calculated at 2% strain. Furthermore, using a(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate morphologic features of the craniofacial skeleton in treated adolescent patients with Class III malocclusion. Fifty-six subjects were divided into 2 groups, with and without acceptable treatment outcomes, which were referred to as the stable and the unstable groups.
