Edward Lynch (Dental) has recently published a research paper in the International Dental Journal investigating the influence of time and different tooth widths on masticatory efficiency and muscular activity in dentures. A reduction of the occlusal table width in these teeth resulted in decreased masticatory efficiency two months after denture fabrication, but there was no significant difference in muscular activity between narrow and wide teeth. However, after four months, the masticatory efficiency of the participants with narrower teeth improved without any changes in muscular activity.
