    The EMG activity in the rest position of the mandible, during chewing, and during swallowing was compared in fifteen boys with normal occlusion and fifteen boys with Angle Class II, Division 1 malocclusion. The children's ages varied between 9 and 13 years, with a mean of 10 years 6 months in the normal-occlusion group and 10 years 11 months in the group with postnormal occlusion. The EMG activity was recorded unilaterally from the anterior temporal muscle, the posterior temporal muscle, ...

    The aim of the study was to assess the prevalence of malocclusion in a population of Bogotanian children and adolescents in terms of different degrees of severity in relation to sex and specific stages of dental development, in order to evaluate the need for orthodontic treatment in this part of Colombia. A sample of 4724 children (5-17 years of age) was randomly selected from a population that attended the Dental Health Service; none had been orthodontically treated. Based on their ...

    The relation between muscle activity and facial morphology was studied in twenty-five boys and twenty-seven girls, aged 9–11 years. The activity in the anterior and posterior parts of the temporal muscle, the masseter muscle and the upper lip was recorded bilaterally with the mandible in postural position and during chewing, swallowing and maximal bite. The electromyograms were analysed in respect of maximal mean voltage amplitude and the duration of muscle activity. Facial morphology ...

    The activity of the anterior and posterior portions of the temporal muscle, the masseter muscle and the upper lip was recorded electromyographically in 18 patients before and on three occasions after surgical correction of mandibular prognathism. The muscle activity was recorded in the postural position of the mandible, during maximal bite, during chewing and swallowing of peanuts and during swallowing of water. The postural activity before and 8 months after surgery did not differ much ...

    Abstract.Background and Aim: The generally recommended treatment in children with unilateral posterior crossbite is expansion of the maxillary dental arch. The reported treatment success rate varies between 50% and 96%. The aim of the prsent study was to analyse whether some occlusal and skeletal characteristics could be found in the deciduous dentition of children with treatment success (including self-correction) in contrast to those showing non-correction (including relapse) in the ...

    The aim of the present study was to evaluate the influence of condylar destruction on the craniofacial growth of children with juvenile chronic arthritis (JCA) and to compare their craniofacial structure with that of healthy children with ideal or postnormal occlusion. Thirty-five children (7 to 16 years) affected by JCA were compared with 136 children (7 to 16 years) with normal facial structure and occlusion (ideal group) and 62 children (7 to 12 years) with postnormal occlusion ...

    The aim of this work was to update the bibliography regarding the concept of 'temporomandibular disorder (TMD)' and 'posterior crossbite' and try to find out if there is any association between some special signs/symptoms of TMD and type of posterior crossbite. A literature search from 1970 to 2009, due to specified criterion, resulted in 14 publications that were found to be relevant for the present systematic review. An association between TMD and posterior crossbite (Yes-group) was ...

    The purpose of the experiment reported was to study soft tissue changes at teeth which were orthodontically moved into areas with varying thickness and quality of periodontal tissues. The maxillary central incisors and first premolars in 5 adult monkeys were used as experimental teeth. 6 months prior to the start of the orthodontic treatment phase, the maxillary second premolars were extracted. By surgical means, areas with varying width of the keratinized gingiva were established in the ...

    The aim of the present study was to examine dentoalveolar development in subjects with an 'ideal' (normal) occlusion. The material comprised 436 study casts of 189 male and 247 female subjects of Swedish origin between the ages of 5 and 31 years with no history of orthodontic treatment. Tooth width, and arch length, width, and depth, as well as palatal height were measured. The data were analysed with a Student's t-test. The results verified that continuous changes of the dental arches ...
