Clinical fit of all-ceramic three-unit fixed partial dentures, generated with three different CAD/CAM systems.
In this study, the hypothesis was tested that the marginal and internal fit of CAD/CAM fabricated all-ceramic three-unit fixed partial dentures (FPDs) can be as good as in metal-ceramic FPDs.Expand

Frontal chewing patterns of the incisor point and their dependence on resistance of food and type of occlusion.
This study has shown that mastication in normal dentate subjects is associated with a great variety of movement modes. The dependence of chewing patterns on the resistance of food proves that theExpand

Improvement and long-term stability of neuromuscular adaptation in implant-supported overdentures.
OBJECTIVES In edentulous patients, implant-supported overdentures can improve chewing efficiency and patient satisfaction, and even a positive impact on bone tissue preservation has been observed.Expand

Success rates of microimplants in edentulous patients with residual ridge resorption.
PURPOSE Restorative therapy of edentulous mandibles with residual ridge resorption is still a great challenge. Even though implant-supported stabilization of dentures has proved to be of value inExpand

Task-dependence of Activity/ Bite-force Relations and its Impact on Estimation of Chewing Force from EMG
Estimation of chewing force from electromyograms (EMGs) calibrated in isometric biting yielded strikingly high force values. We tested the hypothesis that EMG-based force predictions are excessiveExpand

Articulator-related registration--a simple concept for minimizing eccentric occlusal errors in the articulator.
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to develop an easy-to-use procedure for individual registration and to test its accuracy. Expand

Task-dependence of Jaw Elevator and Depressor Co-activation
Elevator muscle activity per unit bite-force has been shown to be higher in chewing than in isometric biting. We tested the hypothesis that surplus elevator activity is evoked in response to aExpand

An extensive classification of chewing patterns in the frontal plane.
AbstractFrom the recordings of 552 individuals, the author has developed a catalog of basic incisor-point masticatory patterns in the frontal plane. By separately comparing its opening and closingExpand

Preconditions for estimation of masticatory forces from dynamic EMG and isometric bite force-activity relations of elevator muscles.
PURPOSE Previous studies proposed to estimate masticatory forces from electromyograms (EMG) by substituting chewing activities of a particular muscle into bite force-activity relations obtained fromExpand

Accuracy of pulse oximetry in children with cyanotic congenital heart disease.
The use of a pulse oximeter to monitor arterial oxygen saturation (SaO2) is considered accurate and reliable in the range of 90% to 100%. However, differing reports exist about the accuracy withExpand
