A 2-year study of Candida-associated denture stomatitis treatment in aged care subjects.
While both methods of denture disinfection were successful, except for the counts of palatal aerobic bacteria, three independent observers of the clinical photographs had difficulty in identifying the controls but were more successful with the treatments. Expand
The human lateral pterygoid muscle: a review of some experimental aspects and possible clinical relevance.
The lateral pterygoid muscle is likely to play an important role in parafunctional excursive jaw movements and also possibly a role in influencing jaw position in patients where the maxillomandibular relationship records change from session to session. Expand

Data are consistent with the hypothesis previously proposed that the lateral pterygoid should be regarded as a system of fibres that acts as one muscle, with varying amounts of evenly graded activity throughout its entire range, and with the distribution of activity within the muscle being determined by the biomechanical demands of the task.

The data suggest that specific regions of the IHLP are capable of selective activation in a finely controlled manner to allow the application of the appropriate force vector to effect the required condylar movement needed for the generation and control of horizontal jaw movements. Expand
Effects of experimental pain on jaw muscle activity during goal-directed jaw movements in humans
The data suggest that under constrained goal-directed tasks, the pattern of pain-induced changes in jaw muscle EMG activity is not clear cut, but can vary with the task performed, jaw displacement magnitude, and the subject being studied. Expand
Functional properties of single motor units in the inferior head of human lateral pterygoid muscle: task firing rates.
The present findings provide further evidence for an involvement of the IHLP in the generation and fine control of horizontal jaw movements and support previously proposed notions of functional heterogeneity within IHLp. Expand
Experimental jaw-muscle pain has a differential effect on different jaw movement tasks.

Individual subject data revealed considerable variability in the effects of hypertonic saline on movement parameters, which suggests that the effect of pain on jaw movement may not be uniform between individuals. Expand
Ipsilateral interferences and working-side condylar movements.
A working-side interference has an immediate, significant effect on working- side condylar movement. Expand
Provision of dental care in aged care facilities, NSW, Australia - part 1 as perceived by the directors of nursing (care providers).
Lack of involvement of dental professionals in admission assessment and in ongoing programmes was of concern to DONs in ACFs. Expand

The data provide additional evidence that the SHLP is functionally heterogeneous and, together with previous evidence for functional heterogeneity within the inferior head of the lateral pterygoid, support the proposition that both heads should be regarded as functional heterogeneous. Expand
