The Stomatognathic System (SS) is composed of static structures (mandible, maxilla, dental arches, TMJs and hyoid bone) and dynamic structures (masticatory, supra and infrahyoid muscles and tongue, lips and cheek muscles) that act together (1) as they are balanced and controlled by the central nervous system performing the stomatognathic functions: suction, breathing, swallowing, speech and chewing.
The lesion were removed with sectioning, the remaining bone cortexes was preserved and the elastics are used to minimize the mouth opening by diminishing the tension forces (18) on the mandible by presenting a force opposite of infrahyoid muscles which are active during mouth opening.
