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 neuromuscular strategy to protect occlusion. This suggests that jaw separation is afferently perceived, raising the question how this perception might work. In related studies, isometric biting was exerted on rubber pieces that slightly yielded similar to compressed food in chewing. We hypothesized that minor jaw… Expand
