Masticatory function was examined in 17 patients with mandibular prognathism before and after bilateral sagittal splitting osteotomy of the mandibular rami. Masticatory efficiency was measured by means of a spectrophotometer, using adenosine triphosphate (ATP) granules, the biting force and occlusal contact area. Masticatory functions showed a tendency to gradual improvement postoperatively. Concerning masticatory efficiency, mean values of absorbance of ATP granules in patients with mandibular prognathism were inferior to those of subjects who possess a normal occlusion, even 12 months after operation.
