Resumo: Purpose: This pilot investigation was designed to apply several, newly developed and more sophisticated methods of measuring muscle structure and function in a situation where adaptation of muscle is pivotal to the success of a therapeutic approach.
Materials and Methods: Patients attending the combined orthodontic/orthognathic surgery clinic at the Clitrofa – Centro Médico, Dentário e Cirúrgico, in Trofa – Portugal were tested according to the protocol of Bite force and occlusal contact area were simultaneously measured with Bite Training Machine and Occlusal Force Diagnostic System.

Evaluation of Pressure Changes in Orthognathic Surgery using Pressurex® in 3 Years of Follow-up

Despite its importance, the measurement of pressure in orthognathic surgery often receives little attention. Pressurex® (SPL – Sensor Products LLC, USA) is one of a few pressureindicating sensor films that reveals pressure distribution and magnitude between any two contacting, mating or impacting surfaces, and is currently viewed as a golden standard for that purpose. This study was designed to test Pressurex® in orthognathic surgery.
