  1. Relationship between the frequency of sleep bruxism and the prevalence of signs and symptoms of temporomandibular disorders in an adolescent...

    The International journal of prosthodontics 21(4):292 (2008) PMID 18717084

    Severe SB (more than 125 events per night) was significantly related to the presence of TMJ clicking (OR: 3.74, CI: 1.22-11.49, P = .02), while gender (male) was not related to the presence of TMJ clicking. Severe SB was not related to headache, though gender (male) was significantly related to head...
  2. Efficacy of tizanidine hydrochloride in the treatment of myofascial face pain.

    Minerva medica 95(2):165 (2004) PMID 15272252

    At the end of the treatment period all patients had improved; 42/78 patients (53.8%) showed absence of clinical symptoms; 18/78 (23.1%) showed a good improvement, still presenting a low number of painful sites, but not satisfying RDC/TMD parameters for diagnosis of myofascial pain; 18/78 (23.1%) sho...
  3. Skull allometry in the marine toad, Bufo marinus.

    Journal of Morphology 241(2):115 (1999) PMID 10420158

    I used linear measurements and geometric morphometrics to quantify shape variation in a size series of 69 skulls from the marine toad, B. marinus. Toads ranged in body mass from 1.8 gm to a calculated 1, 558.9 gm. Of all linear measurements (S/V length, skull width, skull length, levator mass, depre...
  4. Are jaw and facial reflexes modulated during clinical or experimental orofacial pain?

    Journal of orofacial pain 12(4):260 (1998) PMID 10425972

    A variety of jaw and facial reflexes can be evoked by orofacial mechanical or electrical stimuli. Because of its possible diagnostic utility in the management of pain and dysfunction of the masticatory system, the exteroceptive suppression that can be evoked in the masseter and temporalis muscles ha...
  5. Prevention of temporomandibular disorder-related signs and symptoms in orthodontically treated adolescents. A 3-year follow-up of a prospect...

    Acta Odontologica Scandinavica 55(5):319 (1997) PMID 9370031

    Recommendations about the need for occlusal adjustment after malocclusion therapy are inconclusive. A total of 123 orthodontically treated healthy adolescents (88 girls, 35 boys; 14.8 +/- 1.7 years old) agreed to participate in the present study. The subjects were interviewed and examined for signs...
  6. [Congenital anotia with hemifacial atrophy (a report of 12 cases)].

    Zhonghua zheng xing shao shang wai ke za zhi = ... 12(2):119 (1996) PMID 9206154

    Twelve cases of congenital anotia with hemifacial atrophy were examined and analyzed with electromyogram and roentgenography. The results revealed that the development of the deformed side of the face was 30% less than the other side. Because both the soft tissue and the skeleton of the deformed sid...
  7. Orthognathic surgery: a hierarchy of stability.

    The International journal of adult orthodontics... 11(3):191 (1996) PMID 9456622

    I osteotomy, the patterns of movement resulting from the two procedures are different, and differences in stability have not been established....
  8. Oral function in patients wearing fixed prosthesis on osseointegrated implants in the maxilla: 3-year follow-up study.

    Scandinavian journal of dental research 100(5):279 (1992) PMID 1411271

    Seventeen consecutive selected patients rehabilitated by means of a full maxillary bridge on osseointegrated implants ad modern Brånemark were evaluated over a 3-yr period. Besides a subjective evaluation by means of a questionnaire an examination of the occlusal relationship, chewing force, chewin...
  9. Method for identification and classification of single motor unit potentials in diagnostic electromyography.

    Journal of Oral Rehabilitation 17(1):49 (1990) PMID 2299470

    It is important to have an objective method for recording jaw muscle capacity such as EMG before, during and after treatment of muscle dysfunction and also for oral rehabilitation with dentures, implants or other types of restorations. Because measurements of motor unit potentials (MUPs) are needed...
  10. Form and function of the feeding apparatus of Alligator mississippiensis.

    Journal of Morphology 202(1):99 (1989) PMID 2810373

    The architecture of the jaw muscles and their tendons of Alligator mississippiensis is described and their function examined by electromyography. Alligator grabs its prey with forward lunges or rapid lateral movements of the head. It does not engage in regular masticatory cycles. Prey is manipulated...
