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

Motor control of jaw muscles in chewing and in isometric biting with graded narrowing of jaw gape.
When a certain bite force is applied during unilateral chewing, the combination of jaw elevator muscle activities is different than when a comparable force is applied in unilateral isometric biting,Expand

Measurement of masticatory forces and implant loads: a methodologic clinical study.
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to measure vertical masticatory forces in vivo using a method that should be insensitive to the location of bite force impact. MATERIALS AND METHODS TwoExpand

In vivo forces on implants influenced by occlusal scheme and food consistency.
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate whether systematic modifications of occlusal features or food consistency are suitable to reduce the loading of implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS TenExpand

Differences between traces of adjacent condylar points and their impact on clinical evaluation of condyle motion.
PURPOSE Recent research revealed that traces of single posterior reference points can depend on the location of the monitored point. The aim of this study was to quantify this dependence and to pointExpand

Afferent sensory mechanisms involved in jaw gape-related muscle activation in unilateral biting
ObjectivesIn unilateral biting or chewing, the working/balancing-side ratio (W/B-ratio) of masseter activities is inversely proportional to the jaw gape which was interpreted as a neuromuscularExpand

Predicted incidence of excursive occlusal errors in common modes of articulator adjustment.
PURPOSE Functional relationships between occlusal errors and articulator settings have been the subject of numerous investigations. It is, however, not known how frequently errors of a certain sizeExpand

Predicted incidence of occlusal errors in centric closing around arbitrary axes.
PURPOSE This study aimed to estimate the frequency of occlusal errors that could be induced in centric closing of casts around arbitrary axes instead of the hinge axes in a group of patients. Expand
