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).

Buccinator muscle – Wikipedia

Table 3 Stimulation mchanism the buccinator in anesthetized pigs, resting vs contracted dimensions and pressure a. Motor innervation is from the buccal branch of the facial nerve cranial nerve VII. The buccinator was tonically active at a low level, and superimposed on this baseline activity were low to moderate bursts towards the end of the opening phase of each cycle.

Fourth, the highest pressures observed occurred during full tetanus of the buccinator.

Carels C, Willems G, editors. Although buccinator fibers attach to both upper and budcinator jaws, their predominantly horizontal direction indicates that the muscle is not a jaw closer.

Salivary tissue was found throughout most sections, even between the buccinator fibers Fig.

A very interesting aspect of our buccinator EMG results was the difference between the working side and balancing side Fig. Somatotopic organization of perioral musculature bucciantor within the pig facial motor nucleus. Peaks of pressure corresponded with minimal anteroposterior lengths and maximal thickness both in food gathering and in mastication.


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.

Roles of intrinsic and extrinsic tongue muscles in feeding: The very different technologies employed in measuring pressure in the human oral cavity have buccinatlr a wide variety of values, 101618 but available estimates for mastication are reasonably close to ours, 3. After the pressure transducer was placed, four ultrasonic crystal transducers 2 mm diameter with barbs or suture loops buccinaotr tissue retention, Sonometrics Co. Descriptive statistics were calculated using SPSS As in other minipig studies, 2123 feeding behavior on solid food consisted of periods of food collection 0.

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.

For other uses, see Buccinator disambiguation. In some pigs the muscle thickened and shortened as mechanksm mastication Fig. Roughly coincident with the maximum buccinator peak shaded regionspressure begins to rise, length decreases, and the muscle thickens. In this animal dimensional changes were similar in direction but not magnitude to those of mastication, anteroposterior LLength shortening, and mediolateral LThick thickening. Churchill Livingstone Elsevier; Fine wire electrodes 0.

Because of the proximity of the buccinator to the alveolar bone and dental arches, its functional effects on these structures have intrigued dental investigators for decades.


Commons category link is on Wikidata Wikipedia articles with TA98 identifiers. For pig chow, the buccinator pattern became more regular as the pigs chewed, with distinctive differences developing between working and balancing side activity. It is attached upon the buccinator crest as far forward as the first molar tooth.

The buccinator mechanism.

After a period of acclimation 3—5 daysEMG activity of the facial muscles buccinator and orbicularis orisjaw closers masseter and temporalis and in two of the pigs jaw depressor digastric were recorded bilaterally during normal mastication.

Superior longitudinal Inferior longitudinal Transverse Vertical. As a service to our customers we are providing this early version of the manuscript. Measurements bucicnator cyclic changes were made by subtracting the baseline from the peak values for each chewing cycle.

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

Dutra1, 2 Paulo H. Muscles of the head.

The jaw closers have minimal or no activity during drinking, while the orbicularis oris presents stronger activity than during mastication.

In mastication, pressure began to rise just after the major burst of buccinator EMG in the majority of animals; pressure peaked while the jaw closers were still active Fig. How can animal models answer clinical questions? Dimensional changes were variable, probably because of distortions within buvcinator muscle.
