BACKGROUND Although the discrepancy between the habitual occlusal position (HOP) and the flat bite plate-induced occlusal position (BPOP) (regarded as the muscular physiological reference position) has been recently reported to be related to symptoms of temporomandibular disorders (TMDs), it still remains unclear whether the occlusal equilibration in the(More)
The aim of this study was to assess whether temporomandibular joint (TMJ) sounds are associated with the difference between the habitual occlusal position (HOP) and the bite plane induced occlusal position (BPOP). Fifteen dental technician school students who had complete natural dentition, normal occlusion and who exhibited TMJ sounds were compared with(More)
BACKGROUND Many researchers have not accepted the use of occlusal treatments for temporomandibular disorders (TMDs). However, a recent report described a discrepancy between the habitual occlusal position (HOP) and the bite plate-induced occlusal position (BPOP) and discussed the relation of this discrepancy to TMD. Therefore, the treatment outcome of(More)
BACKGROUND Many epidemiological studies of temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) in children and adolescents have been performed. However, the results of such studies have varied, and a comprehensive view of the prevalence and severity of symptoms and signs is difficult to obtain. In the present study, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) sounds, which are the most(More)
UNLABELLED Splint therapy is a widely used modality for temporomandibular disorders (TMDs). However, questions remain regarding the mechanism of symptom relief. Recently, a relation between TMD and a discrepancy between the habitual occlusal position (HOP) and the anterior flat plane bite plate-induced occlusal position (BPOP) has been reported. Therefore,(More)
We point out a problem of the congestion control mechanism of TCP on the long fat pipe network (LFN) by precise analysis using our hand-made tools, and propose a congestion control algorithm for parallel streams and packet spacing algorithm in slow start phase for LFN. This paper presents: (1) observation of TCP/IP multi-stream data transfer across 7500(More)
