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).

Changes are similar regardless of the side of mastication identified above the masseter burst.

Moreover, these two facial muscles were mostly out of phase. With the absence of movement during buccinator stimulation, this difficulty vanished, and the average value of 8. The results are nevertheless valid as relative, if not absolute, values because the buccinator is the only contractile element in the cheek. Veli palatini tensor levator Musculus uvulae Palatopharyngeus Palatoglossus. Results During mastication, buccinator EMG showed regular peaks that preceded those of the jaw closers.

The initial measured thickness between the two central crystals of 4—7 mm included some cheek connective tissue in addition to the buccinator. However, the relationship was not exact. mechansim

Drinking, as in other studies, 20 — 22 occurred by suction. Transition from suckling to drinking at weaning: The Future of Orthodontics.

The buccinator mechanism.

Because of the close relationship of the buccinator with the orbicularis oris, EMG of this muscle was examined as well. A flat titanium-bodied pressure transducer Model P19F, 5mm diameter, 1. Pig chow and orange produced intermediate results. In addition to controlling the bolus, bucciantor may be an effect on salivation.


The orbicularis oris activity corresponded to the contraction of the jaw closers Fig. Although the muscle was attached to the alveolar bone of the maxilla and mandible, the fibers did not seem to originate from these structures but rather were bonded by connective tissue to the thin mucosa that covered the bone.

Because the corner of the mouth always retracted, which implies that anteroposterior shortening occurred, the inconsistency in ultrasound measurements was probably an artifact produced by irregular buckling of the cheek. A ground electrode was affixed to the forehead.

The independence of orbicularis oris and buccinator activity patterns further indicates that despite the apparent continuity of their fiber bundles at the oral commissure, these two muscles in pigs are neurologically distinct.

During mastication, the timing of the buccinator EMG burst was just before the jaw closer burst, as has also been reported for humans. A Latin dictionary founded on Andrews’ edition of Freund’s Latin dictionary.

Buccinator muscle – Wikipedia

However, accurate quantification of dimensions was only possible in SonoLab, where information on the side of chewing was absent. Levator anguli oris Levator labii superioris Zygomaticus major minor. This page was last edited on 27 Novemberat For other uses, see Buccinator disambiguation. EMG recording of the buccinator is challenging due to its proximity to other facial muscles, especially orbicularis oris, and the potential for crosstalk from the much larger masseter.

Buccinator anteroposterior length was an average of 1.


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

During food gathering, the orbicularis oris muscles are strongly active and the buccinators show weak irregular activity. After about 20 days of fixation, the facial skin and subcutaneous fat were removed and the specimens embedded in paraffin wax. Tongues, tentacles and trunks: In contrast to the closers and the buccinator, the orbicularis oris and digastric were strongly active when the pigs were gathering food, with symmetrical phasic activity in the right and left sides.

Other muscle abbreviations as in Fig. Tissues were collected postmortem for histology. In the past the buccinator muscle was also written as bucinator muscle. The manuscript will undergo copyediting, typesetting, and review of the resulting proof before it is published in its final citable form.

Leuven University Press; Rabbits have a much broader transverse movement during the power stroke than either humans or pigs, and the jaws are so anisognathic that there is no tooth contact at all on the balancing side.

Roles of intrinsic and extrinsic tongue muscles in feeding: Concurrently, resting pressure at the mandibular attachment of the buccinator was higher in anesthetized animals, averaging 0. As shown in Fig. Cheek thickening early in the closing movement is the most likely physical mechanism by which the bolus is manipulated from the buccal side.
