Human mandibular function is determined in part by masticatory muscle tensions and morphological restraints within the craniomandibular system. As only limited information about their interactions can be obtained in vivo, mathematical modeling is a useful alternative. It allows simulation of causal relations between structure and function and the demonstration of hypothetical events in functional or dysfunctional systems. Here, the external force required to reach maximum jaw gape was… CONTINUE READING
