Realization of masticatory movement by 3-dimensional simulation of the temporomandibular joint and the masticatory muscles.

Abstract

Masticatory muscles are closely involved in mastication, pronunciation, and swallowing, and it is therefore important to study the specific functions and dynamics of the mandibular and masticatory muscles. However, the shortness of muscle fibers and the diversity of movement directions make it difficult to study and simplify the dynamics of mastication. The… (More)
