Effects of Swimming on Stomatognathic System

  title={Effects of Swimming on Stomatognathic System},
  author={F. Del Grosso and Pietro Nannelli and Simonetta D’Ercole and Marco Tieri and Diego Martinelli and Marta Di Nicola and Domenico Tripodi},
The work purpose to evaluate how the swimming could affect the skeletrical e dental structure of athlete due to the link of form and function. The athletes evacuate were 204, referred to nine Italian societies and 12 swimming pools. The athletes trained on average 7,7 + 3,5 times every week. A complete pathological analysis and one of hard and soft tissues of oral cavity followed by an intraoral examination. In the clinical analysis were evaluated: the occlusal state; the global conditions of… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Prevalence of TMJ Disorders in Competitive Swimmers: A Cross Sectional Study
The most common swimming injuries are shoulder, neck and back, and the prevalence of musculoskeletal injuries in competitive swimmers is, shoulder 37%, knee 28%, spine 22% and foot and ankle is 19%. Expand


The impact of the long-term playing of musical instruments on the stomatognathic system - review.
A review of the influence of playing musical instruments on the formation of malocclusion and TMJ disorders in musicians and the presentation of research and opinions about this problem in the last 25 years is made. Expand
Possible causal relationships between competitive swimming in growing age and three-dimensional dentoalveolar development
It is demonstrated that competitive swimming during the growth phase has a favourable effect on dental arch development in the sagittal, vertical and transverse planes. Expand
The effect of swimming on cartilage formation.
Investigation of the effect of swimming on bone remodeling with the use of implanted pellets containing bone morphogenetic protein and demineralized bone matrix during the initial stages of the differentiation of mesenchymal cells to cartilage cells suggested that systemic hormonal and/or metabolic changes that promote cartilage formation might have occurred after swimming.

Tongue and Lip Forces Exerted during Deglutition in Subjects with and without an Anterior Open Bite
The forces exerted by the lingual and perioral musculature on the anterior dentition during the act of swallowing were measured to determine whether a difference existed between two classifications of patients in regard to tongue and upper-lip pressure on the maxillary incisor. Expand

Playing a wind instrument does not significantly influence the position of the anterior teeth and is not a major etiologic factor in the development of a malocclusion, however, playing a brass instrument with a large cup-shaped mouthpiece might predispose a musician to develop lingual crossbites or lingualCrossbite tendencies.

The Prevalence of Malocclusion and Oral Habits among 5–7-Year-Old Children
Non-nutritive sucking habits and tongue thrust swallowing are significant risk factors for the development of anterior open bite and posterior crossbite in pre-school children. Expand
Dental malocclusion and upper airway obstruction, an otolaryngologist's perspective.
It is the opinion of the authors of this paper that upper airways obstruction may have a negative effect on the developing transitional dental occlusion and that eliminating the cause of upper airway obstruction can lead to 'normalization' of occlusions in such children. Expand
Primate experiments on oral respiration.
From these and the previously reported primate experiments in this laboratory, it can be deduced that orthodontic appliances in general affect the morphology of the orofacial structure in two ways: by direct force and by sensory stimulation. Expand

A childhood tracheotomized group was similar to the nasal group for greater activity of the masseter muscles than of the suprahyoid muscles during mastication, as well as in the measurements of facial, maxillary, and mandibular widths. Expand
Cranio-cervical posture: a factor in the development and function of the dentofacial structures.
The aim of the paper is to link together the findings of a series of studies that attempt to clarify this relationship, and bring into focus cranio-cervical posture, which is a functional factor that seems to be involved in many clinical orthodontic problems. Expand
