The buccinator is a thin quadrilateral muscle occupying the interval between the maxilla and the mandible at the side of the face. It forms the anterior part of the. The buccinator mechanism was investigated by injecting alginate into the buccal space of volunteers and examining the set shape, and by dissection of. (b) The buccinator mechanism during activity. The oral screen is placed predentally and stimulates the sensory input by touching the intra-oral membranes (V).

These crystals continuously send and receive ultrasound from other crystals in the array, thus measuring distance in real time. Surface electrodes were used for the masseter and temporalis interelectrode distance 2—3 cm.

Similarly, the lips, especially the lower, are involved in picking up particulate food as it is gathered, aiding the tongue. After the mastication data were acquired buccjnator 30 minthe pigs were anesthetized again and placed prone on the table. This quadrilateral flat muscle is located deep to the skin and is mostly covered by the masseter and more superficial facial muscles.

Weijs WA, Dantuma R. Shcherbatyy V, Liu ZJ. Acknowledgments We thank Dr. Peaks of pressure corresponded with minimal anteroposterior lengths and maximal thickness both in food gathering and in mastication.

To insert the anterior and posterior crystals inside the buccinator, muscle fibers were gently separated.

The buccinator during mastication: a functional and anatomical evaluation in minipigs

The very different technologies employed in measuring pressure in the human oral cavity have produced a wide variety of values, 101618 but available estimates for mastication are reasonably close to ours, 3.

Pressures were calculated from voltages using the regression equations generated during calibration. Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop. In this animal dimensional changes were similar in direction but not magnitude to those of mastication, anteroposterior LLength shortening, and mediolateral LThick thickening.


Retrieved from ” https: Despite the fact that the muscle pulls on its attachment, the local mechanical environment at the alveolar bone is one of positive pressure. The low values and high variability suggest that the transducers did not function optimally during mastication, as discussed further below. The pressure transducer P was placed at the attachment of the buccinator to the mandibular alveolar process.

Scale bars are mV for EMG, 0. The shortening of the snout in higher primates has presumably brought about a greater buccintaor continuity of these muscles, such that they work together as a total facial mask 3 to control ingested food.

Right and left digastric, RD and LD. The bucciantor closers have minimal or no activity during drinking, while the orbicularis oris presents stronger activity than during mastication.

Somatotopic organization of perioral musculature innervation within the pig facial motor nucleus. The only vertical fibers were extremely superficial and anteriorly located.

The publisher’s final edited version of this article is available at Arch Oral Biol. Concurrently, resting pressure at the mandibular attachment of the buccinator was higher in anesthetized animals, averaging 0. In addition to controlling the bolus, there may be an effect on salivation. Nevertheless, as mechanosm reported for humans, 30 in histological sections fiber orientation is highly complicated.

Measurements of cyclic changes were made by subtracting the baseline from the peak values for each chewing cycle. This situation is reminiscent of the attachment of buccinator fibers to the parotid duct in humans, which Kang et al.

Depressor anguli oris Depressor labii inferioris Mentalis Transversus menti. These transducers have a stiff diaphragm with a semiconductor strain gauge affixed to the interior, a frequency response of 2.

Buccinator muscle

Table 3 Stimulation of jechanism buccinator in anesthetized pigs, resting vs contracted dimensions and pressure a. The purpose of the buccinator stimulation was to clarify the effect of muscle activity on muscle dimensions and loading at the attachment area by inducing maximum contraction.


Being a dictionary of the technical terms used by writers on medicine and the collateral sciences, in the Latin, English, French, and German languages. Dimensional and pressure changes of the buccinator muscle during mastication a.

Most ran anteroposteriorly, especially in the middle part of the muscle, but vertical and mediolateral fibers were also apparent Fig. Anatomical terms of muscle [ edit on Wikidata ]. Rafferty1 and Susan W. The Future of Orthodontics. The EMG duration of the balancing side buccinator was longer, lower in amplitude, and started sooner about ms ; the working side activity was shorter, later and had higher amplitude Fig. Working and balancing sides were unknown for dimensions and were combined for pressure see text.

Parasagittal sections through the buccinator muscle; rostral anterior is to the left. The recordings were performed repeatedly over a period of weeks during ingestion and mastication of foods of different consistency and size. The food preference for each pig varied, and no animal ate all the foods, except for pig chow.

Buccinator muscle – Wikipedia

No distinct pressure variations were seen during drinking in the single individual that performed this behavior. Internal kinematics of the tongue during feeding in pigs.

Shortening began with the buccinator EMG burst at the end of the opening phase, and minimum length was reached in the middle of the jaw buccinatkr burst; thus shortening accompanied early closing. This page was last edited on 27 Novemberat
