Mull The buccinator during mastication: a functional and anatomical evaluation in minipigs It is an assistant muscle of mastication chewing and in neonates it is used to suckle. This procedure was, however, not reliable for dimensional changes, which varied widely in direction as well as in amount when the buccinator was tetanized Table 3. Commons category link is on Wikidata Wikipedia articles with TA98 identifiers. To insert the anterior and posterior crystals inside the buccinator, muscle fibers were gently separated.

Arazshura Anesthetized pigs were euthanized with pentobarbital mechznism the end of the terminal experiment. Therefore, in order to better understand the function of the buccinator during mastication and the effects on the alveolar bone, we undertook a study using minipigs Sus scrofathe nonprimate animal model most appropriate for the study of human mastication.

Table 3 Stimulation of the buccinator in anesthetized pigs, resting vs contracted dimensions and pressure a. Most likely, the muscle functions by thickening the entire cheek, basically acting as a muscular hydrostat. Caria3 Katherine L. Bone surface strains and internal bony pressures at the jaw joint of the miniature pig during masticatory muscle contraction. Anteroposterior shortening and mediolateral thickening were initiated just before the jaw-closing muscles were active when buccinator EMG bursts were most often seen and continued during the brief contractions of the jaw closers, with minimum length and maximum thickness reached just after the jaw-closing bursts.

Procedures were then repeated on the other side. Carels C, Willems G, editors. Foods of different consistency were offered as during the previous buccinatof of normal mastication.

During food gathering, the orbicularis oris muscles are strongly active and the buccinators show weak irregular activity.

After the pressure transducer was placed, four ultrasonic crystal transducers 2 mm diameter with barbs or suture loops for tissue retention, Sonometrics Co. Footnotes Conflict of Interest: Pressure 0 to 40 kPaproduced using a mechanisj pressure bulb, was plotted against voltage output. Zool J Linnean Soc. Anatomy, Descriptive and Surgical.

The buccinator mechanism. Procerus Nasalis dilator naris Depressor septi nasi Levator labii superioris alaeque nasi. Compared to food gathering, jaw closer EMG during mastication was stronger, more prolonged, and more asymmetric because of the alternation of working and balancing sides. Abstract Objective The buccinator muscle forms the lateral wall of the oral cavity. These crystals continuously send and receive ultrasound from other crystals in the array, thus measuring distance in real time.

Electromyographic investigations of the tongue and circumoral muscular sling with fine-wire electrodes. EMG electrodes were placed as in the daily recordings. Buccinator muscle — Wikipedia As the chewing becomes regular, a distinction between working and balancing side activity develops in the buccinator, as shown in the boxed blow-up. The crystals used in these locations each had buccinagor loops which were used to suture them to the underside of the skin or to the deep surface of the mucosa.

Only the part of the buccinator not covered by the masseter is shown. During mastication, the timing of the mechanisk EMG burst was just before the jaw closer burst, as has mecuanism been reported for humans. With the absence of movement during buccinator stimulation, this difficulty vanished, and the average value of 8.

Physiology of feeding in miniature pigs. For both length and thickness, apple most often produced the greatest strains. Teng S, Herring SW. The initial resting thickness was 4—7 mm. In a final experiment, EMG activity was supplemented by simultaneous measurements of buccinator length and thickness and of pressure at the buccinator attachment buuccinator the mandibular alveolar bone. Enzyme-histochemical and morphological characteristics of muscle fibre types in the human buccinator and orbicularis oris.

The buccinator during mastication: a functional and anatomical evaluation in minipigs Dimensional changes during drinking were very small. Considering only the 4 animals that ate at least 3 foods, a pattern emerges if these data are surveyed in terms of which foods elicited the bucinator changes in length and thickness and which the smallest.

Tongues, tentacles and trunks: The superficial lateral and deep medial crystals were intended to measure muscle thickness and were placed under the skin superficial crystal and deep to the mucosa deep crystalin the mediolateral transverse plane, about midway between the anterior and posterior crystals.

Because the corner of the mouth always retracted, which implies that anteroposterior shortening mefhanism, the inconsistency in ultrasound measurements buccinztor probably an artifact produced by irregular buckling of the cheek.

Buccinator outlined in red. Dimensional changes buccunator variable, probably because of distortions within the muscle. In the anterior portion of the muscle, near the oral commissure, the anteroposterior fibers interdigitated with the vertical fibers and orbicularis oris in a basket-weave pattern.

Ferg Pigs were anesthetized as usual and positioned in lateral recumbency. The animals were 3—4 months old at the beginning of the study.
