IS THE TONGUE IS MORE THAN A DENTAL OBSTACLE?

  1. 1. IS THE TONGUE IS MORE THAN A DENTAL OBSTACLE? Department of OCBS and Orthodontics University of Maryland Dental School Baltimore This research was supported in part by grant DC02561 from the National Institute of Deafness and Other Disorders Maureen Stone, Ph.D.
  2. 2. Goals of Tongue Measurement <ul><li>Visualize, represent, and predict the complex movements of speech and swallowing. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Goals of Tongue Measurement <ul><li>Visualize, represent, and predict the complex movements of speech and swallowing. </li></ul><ul><li>Gain insight into motor control strategies used in speech production and swallowing. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Goals of Tongue Measurement <ul><li>Visualize, represent, and predict the complex movements of speech and swallowing. </li></ul><ul><li>Gain insight into motor control strategies used in speech production and swallowing. </li></ul><ul><li>Quantify functionally important features of speech gestures. </li></ul>

  18. 18. Study 1. Effect of Anterior Open Bite (AOB) on Swallowing Pattern
  19. 19. Known Information <ul><li>Swallowing is stereotypic and partially reflexive. </li></ul><ul><li>Large boluses are swallowed more rapidly than small. </li></ul><ul><li>EPG swallowing patterns are similar for both bolus sizes. </li></ul><ul><li>(AOB) will have the same effect as a large bolus. </li></ul><ul><li>Ultrasound swallowing patterns will be similar for both bolus sizes. </li></ul>Hypotheses
  20. 20. Recording Procedures <ul><li>Open bite was simulated with bite blocks placed between the first molars. </li></ul><ul><li>Swallowing was measured for bolus sizes of dry, 5, 10, and 20 ml. </li></ul><ul><li>Bite conditions were unrestrained (U), 5mm and 10mm. </li></ul><ul><li>Midsagittal ultrasound was collected measured and displayed as a connected waterfall display. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Effect of Bite Block Size 20 ml water Unrestrained vs. 10 mm Block
  22. 22. Midsagittal tongue deformation mimics bolus movement. <ul><li>At first, the bolus depresses the anterior tongue (red). </li></ul><ul><li>The bolus is transported backward. </li></ul><ul><li>The tongue elevates A-to-P as the bolus is squeezed backward. </li></ul>Blue = high, Red = low regions Unrestrained– 20 ml BACK_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _FRONT Time Height 3 2 1
  23. 23. Unrestrained 10 mm BB Pos_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _Ant Time Height The biteblock caused a more anterior tongue initially (blue), a lower depression during propulsion (yellow), and a more anterior final closure (blue). Time Height Time
  24. 24. The initial and final closures were more anterior in BB than unrestrained (red arrows). Perhaps the subject could only reach a more anterior (and lower) part of the palate. The overlay shows the tongue to be anterior and inferior in the BB case. time unrestrained 10 mm BB
  25. 25. Effect of Bolus Size: Unrestrained Jaw 5ml vs 20 ml water
  26. 26. The patterns are very similar. The larger bolus depresses more deeply in the front around the bolus (red). Also the tongue elevates more rapidly to achieve maximum closure. 5ml 20ml
  27. 27. Swallowing patterns were similar for 2 bolus sizes. The 20 ml bolus begins with greater anterior tongue lowering, but both swallows end in the same place, with full palate contact. Thus pattern differences werere primarily scalar. 20 ml 5 ml time tongue palate contact
  28. 28. Study 2. Effect of Mouth Breathing on Tongue Position
  29. 29. Methods <ul><li>Tasks </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Breathe normally for one minute (NO). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Breathe with nose clamped for one minute (NC). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Breathe with nose clamped and tongue held forward for one minute (NCANT). </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Measurements </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ultrasound images of midsagittal tongue contour. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Contour measured as x,y coordinates. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Displayed in Excel. </li></ul></ul>
  30. 30. Mouth Breathing Results <ul><li>Subjects 1 and 2 were similar. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>NC caused tongue lowering . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>NCANT caused anterior tongue position. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Subject 3 was different. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>NC caused backward tongue rotation . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>NCANT caused anterior tongue root . </li></ul></ul><ul><li>All opened their airways more in NCANT than NC. </li></ul>NO NC NCANT
  31. 31. Conclusions <ul><li>Tongue motion is complex in three dimensions. </li></ul><ul><li>Tongue segments are uncorrelated due the tongue’s anisotropic muscle architecture. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Cf: It ran a lot movie . </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Study Results </li></ul><ul><ul><li>AOB caused anterior (inferior) tongue-palate contact. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Bolus size did not affect swallow pattern; effects were scalar. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Subjects’ responses to blocked airway was variable (N=3). </li></ul></ul>
