This study assessed the influence of a reduction of the palate extension of a custom-made mouthguard on the degree of satisfaction of elite water polo players. Eighteen water polo players ...
Tooth hypersensitivity due to dental erosion is one of the most common problem related to swimming in improper pH chlorinated pools. Because the teeth are exposed to acidic water for a lon...
The primary objectives of this study are to determine if the use of an Occlusal Support Device (OSD)(Mouthguard) can reduce the duration and intensity of the second stage of labor, reduce ...
The latest findings on the ergogenic effects of a dentistry-design, bite-aligning mouthpiece require additional research to assess its impact on anaerobic ability and ventilatory parameter...
To characterize the expression of IFI16 and AIM2 in gingival tissues in an inflammatory response using an acrylic mouthguard (also referred to as a stent) induced bacteria overgrowth metho...
Approximately 50% of water polo players have suffered orofacial injuries. However, fewer than 8% of players wear a mouthguard. A more comfortable mouthguard design is therefore needed to increase comp...
Mouthguards should be provided with appropriate thickness and proper fit to exert their effects. However, mouthguard thickness becomes thinner after forming. The aim of this study was to examine the e...
Using mouthguards can reduce the risk of injury when playing sports, but the sheet material and thickness have a large effect on their efficacy and safety. The aim of this study was to investigate the...
This study aims to evaluate the occlusal characteristics of full edentulous patients with implant-supported prostheses and to provide a reference with the occlusal situation for clinicians.
The objective of this study was to test whether or not the load-bearing capacity of occlusal veneers bonded to enamel and made of ceramic or hybrid materials does differ from those of porcelain-fused-...
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)
Personal satisfaction relative to the work situation.
Customer satisfaction or dissatisfaction with a benefit or service received.
Rigid or flexible appliances that overlay the occlusal surfaces of the teeth. They are used to treat clenching and bruxism and their sequelae, and to provide temporary relief from muscle or temporomandibular joint pain.
Therapeutic practices which are not currently considered an integral part of conventional allopathic medical practice. They may lack biomedical explanations but as they become better researched some (PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES; DIET; ACUPUNCTURE) become widely accepted whereas others (humors, radium therapy) quietly fade away, yet are important historical footnotes. Therapies are termed as Complementary when used in addition to conventional treatments and as Alternative when used instead of conventional treatment.
