Relation of dietary preference to masticatory movement and masticatory exercises in Japanese children.

Summary of "Relation of dietary preference to masticatory movement and masticatory exercises in Japanese children."

Modern Japanese children have decreased masticatory function, which can be explained by the dietary change to soft foods. In earlier studies involving children with mixed dentition, masticatory exercises were shown to improve masticatory function and modify dental arch growth. Grinding type of mastication with a wide path reportedly increases lateral growth of the dental arch. This study aimed to assess the relationship between masticatory movements and dietary preference, and how masticatory exercises affected masticatory movement during Hellman's dental stages IIA to IIC (period of first molar eruption).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Selective grinding of occlusal surfaces of the teeth in an effort to eliminate premature contacts and occlusal interferences; to establish optimal masticatory effectiveness, stable occlusal relationships, direction of main occlusal forces, and efficient multidirectional patterns, to improve functional relations and to induce physiologic stimulation of the masticatory system; to eliminate occlusal trauma; to eliminate abnormal muscle tension; to aid in the stabilization of orthodontic results; to treat periodontal and temporomandibular joint problems; and in restorative procedures. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992)

A symptom complex consisting of pain, muscle tenderness, clicking in the joint, and limitation or alteration of mandibular movement. The symptoms are subjective and manifested primarily in the masticatory muscles rather than the temporomandibular joint itself. Etiologic factors are uncertain but include occlusal dysharmony and psychophysiologic factors.

A masticatory muscle whose action is closing the jaws.

The force applied by the masticatory muscles in dental occlusion.

A masticatory muscle whose action is closing the jaws; its posterior portion retracts the mandible.
