Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Maxillary cheek pressures are measured in the molar area, at the teeth and high in the buccal sulcus, in both natural and extended head positions, with teeth at rest and in function. Highest pressures are found on the alveolar process, with some increases with the head extended and the jaw at dental rest position.
