  • PURPOSE The purpose of this investigation was 1) to compare morphologic parameters and voluntary bite forces between controls and a sample of patients with mandibular prognathism before surgical correction, and 2) to examine how these patients' bite forces adapt after treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty-four prognathic patients were compared with 24 controls before and up to 3 years after mandibular setback surgery. Measures of skeletal morphology and maximum isometric bite force were made… CONTINUE READING
