  • StatPearls: Embryology, Tongue [BOOK]
    StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Jain Prachi P Pandit B. D Sharma University of Health Sciences, Rohtak Rathee Manu M Pandit B. D. Sharma University of Health Sciences BOOK
  • The tongue is an extremely sensitive organ that performs on a complex muscle background. The primary functions of the stomatognathic system, such as mastication, deglutition, and speech, require the active involvement of the tongue. Embryologically, the development of tongue is a very complicated process that starts around the fourth or fifth week of the gestation period, and its development has …
  • Orthodontic Retainers: A Contemporary Overview. [Journal Article]
    J Contemp Dent Pract 2019; 20(7):857-862Alassiry AM
  • CONCLUSIONS: Currently, there is insufficient high-quality evidence in favor of a particular retention appliance/regime or protocol. There is a need for further evidence-based high-quality studies/randomize controlled trial studies (RCTs) to evaluate different orthodontic retention appliances and regime after the orthodontic treatment.Irrespective of the appliance, the patients should be prepared for a long-term or indefinite retention phase following orthodontic treatment to prevent relapse.
  • 3D Facial morphology in children affected by spinal muscular atrophy type 2 (SMAII). [Journal Article]
    Eur J Orthod 2019Pucciarelli V, Gibelli D, … Sforza C
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study assessed a relatively small number of patients, due to the rare frequency of SMA type II.SMA type II children possess peculiar facial alterations that may be due to the altered muscular activity. As feeding problems may derive also by malocclusion and masticatory muscular alterations, a detailed assessment of the craniofacial individual alterations should be considered in the standards of care of these patients.
  • Transmission of light through fiber-reinforced composite posts. [Journal Article]
    Dent Mater J 2019Bell-Rönnlöf AL, Jaatinen J, … Vallittu P
  • The aim of this in vitro study was to explore light transmission through an individually formed fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) post compared with two prefabricated FRC posts. Three different glass FRC posts from different manufacturers were used: two groups included prefabricated glass FRC posts (RelyX and GC Fiber Posts) and one group consisted of individually formed E-glass FRC posts with sem…
  • Dental occlusion as one cause of tinnitus. [Journal Article]
    Med Hypotheses 2019; 130:109280Villaça Avoglio JL
  • There is large support in literature linking tinnitus to dental occlusion and temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD). However, there is no model to explain such a link. This hypothesis explains how the fusimotor system of the muscles innervated by the trigeminal motor nucleus is affected by inadequacies in the occlusion of the teeth that cause changes in posture and movement of the mandible. Rep…
  • Influence of Masticatory Behavior on Muscle Compensations During the Oral Phase of Swallowing of Smokers. [Journal Article]
    Int Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2019; 23(3):e317-e321Silva GRD, Rech RS, … Santos KWD
  • Introduction Chewing and swallowing are physiologically interconnected functions, which share motor structures and supranuclear regions of the central nervous system (CNS), involving a sensorimotor synchrony. Objective To analyze the influence of masticatory behavior on muscular compensations in the oral phase of swallowing in smokers compared with nonsmokers. Methods A cross-sectional study comp…
  • Load response of the natural tooth and dental implant: A comparative biomechanics study. [Journal Article]
    J Adv Prosthodont 2019; 11(3):169-178Robinson D, Aguilar L, … Ackland D
  • CONCLUSIONS: Occlusal loading of the natural tooth results in lower stress-strain magnitudes in the underlying alveolar bone than those associated with a dental implant of matched occlusal anatomy. The PDL may function to mitigate axial and bending stress intensities resulting from off-centered occlusal loads. The findings may be useful in dental implant design, restoration material selection, and surgical planning.
