COMPARATIVE STUDIES ON THE CURVE OF SPEE MAMMALS, WITH A DISCUSSION OF ITS RELATION TO THE FORM OF THE FOSSA MANDIBULARIS
- preÂ·moÂ·lar. // American Heritage Student Science Dictionary;2009, p276
The article presents an encyclopedia entry for the term "premolar," which refers to any of eight bicuspid teeth in mammals, arranged in pairs on both sides of the upper and lower jaws between the canines and molars. Premolars are used to tear and grind food.
- Temporomandibular joint loading generated during bilateral static bites at molars and premolars. Abe, Makoto; Medina-Martinez, Raul U.; Itoh, Ken-ichi; Kohno, Shoji // Medical & Biological Engineering & Computing;Nov2006, Vol. 44 Issue 11, p1017
The aim of this study was to investigate the features of the loading vectors of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) generated during bilateral static bites at the molars and at the premolars, and to determine the major factors affecting the difference between the two loading vectors. We computed...
- Masticatory Motor Programs in Australian Herbivorous Mammals: Diprotodontia. Crompton, Alfred W. // Integrative & Comparative Biology;Aug2011, Vol. 51 Issue 2, p271
Movement of the jaw during molar occlusion is determined by the sequence of activity in the adductor muscles and this sequence is one way to define a masticatory motor program. Based on the similarity of molar structure, it is probable that the American opossum and the early Tertiary mammals...
- tooth. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary (2009);2009, Issue 21, p2336
An encyclopedia entry for "tooth," which refers to one of the hard, bony conical structures of the upper and lower jaws used for chewing, is presented. An illustration of a tooth structure shows its longitudinal section consisting of the crown, neck, root, gingiva, dentin, enamel, and cementum....
- Comparison Between Efficacy of Four Different Types of Orthodontic Separators. MALAGAN, MANJUNATH A.; BISWAS, P. P.; MUDDAIAH, SUNIL; REDDY, RAMI; SHETTY, B. K.; PREETHAM, JYOSNA; NADUWINMANI, SANJAY; SINGH, SUJEET // Journal of Clinical & Diagnostic Research;Aug2014, Vol. 8 Issue 8, p41
Aim: To evaluate the rapidity and amount of separation of four different types of separators (i.e. Elastomeric separators, Dumbbell separators, Kesling springs and NEET springs) and also the percentage of loss of these separators. Materials and Methods: The separating effect of 4 different types...
- Tactile sensation and occlusal loading condition of mandibular premolars and molars. Ogawa, Toru; Suzuki, Tasuku; Oishi, Nao; Zhang, Xiaolei; Naert, Ignace; Sasaki, Keiichi // Odontology;Jul2011, Vol. 99 Issue 2, p193
The aim of the study was to investigate any correlation between tactile sensation and occlusal loading conditions of mandibular premolars and molars, by means of tactile detection threshold (TDT). TDTs of mandibular premolars and molars of twenty adults were determined by calibrated...
- biÂ·cusÂ·pid. // American Heritage Student Science Dictionary;2009, p39
The entry describes bicuspid. It is a tooth having two points or cusps, especially a premolar.
- Open Wide and Look Inside. // Weekly Reader - Edition 2;2/11/2005, Vol. 74 Issue 18, p3
Presents information on the functions of different types of teeth. Incisor; Canine; Bicuspid; Molar.
- premolar. Peters, Michael // BMA A-Z Family Medical Encyclopedia;2004, p627
A definition of the term "premolar" is presented. It refers to one of eight permanent grinding teeth, that are located in the upper and lower jaw on each side of the mouth, between the canine teeth and molars.
