PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to examine the changes in the chewing rhythm before and after mandibular ramus osteotomy in patients with prognathism with and without asymmetry.

The duration of the chewing cycle was recorded preoperatively and postoperatively. The duration of the chewing cycle and coefficient of variation were compared between… CONTINUE READING
