    4?mm2 and occlusal force: 478.3?N), but there were no significant differences between two groups. Postural stability was more stable in the good hygiene group than in the poor hygiene group (postural stability length: 22.7?cm; postural stability area: 4.7?cm2; lateral postural stability: 2.1?cm; anteroposterior postural stability: 2.1?cm) because the values of postural stability length, postural stability area, lateral postural stability and anteroposterior postural stability were DZNeP ic50 23.8?cm, 5.1?cm2, 2.2?cm and 2.2?cm, respectively, and were more stable but resulted in no significant difference between two groups. 1 ?For the question ��What food can you chew?��, the participants who answered ��I can chew everything�� and ��There are some foods that I cannot chew�� accounted for 51% (n?=?44) and 49% (n?=?43), respectively. Items that they could not chew included pickled radish, dried squid, hard rice crackers, whole apples and popped beans. The percentage of participants who answered ��no problems�� or ��had one or more problems�� was 29% (n?=?25) and 71% (n?=?62), respectively. 1 ?In the group who answered ��I can chew everything�� to the question ��What food can you chew?��, the number of remaining teeth and D teeth, M teeth, F teeth, occlusal contact area, the average occlusal pressure, the maximum occlusal pressure, occlusal force, postural stability length, postural stability area, lateral postural stability and anteroposterior postural stability were 22.1 and 0.6, 6.3, 10.2, 17.5?mm2, 38.8?Mpa, 101.8?Mpa, 617.3?N, 20.6?cm, 4.7?cm2, 2.1?cm and 2.2?cm, respectively. On the other hand, in the group who answered ��There are some foods that I cannot chew�� (n?=?43), the number of remaining teeth, D teeth, M teeth and F teeth were 15.0 and 0.8, 14.1, 8.9, respectively, and the occlusal contact area, the average occlusal pressure, the maximum occlusal pressure, occlusal force, postural stability length, postural stability area, lateral postural stability and anteroposterior postural stability were 10.3?mm2, 40.3?Mpa, 96.0?Mpa, 374.5?N, 25.3?cm, 5.0?cm2, 2.2?cm and 2.2?cm, respectively. There were highly significant differences in occlusal contact area and postural stability length between the groups (p?<?0.01). There were highly significant differences in the number of remaining teeth and M teeth and occlusal force between the groups (p?<?0.001). On the basis of the subject��s reply to all five items, the results with ��no problems�� and ��had one or more problems�� were compared. The number of remaining teeth and M teeth, occlusal contact area, the average occlusal pressure, the maximum occlusal pressure and occlusal force of ��the good group�� were 22.2 and 5.3, 20.0?mm2, 37.7?Mpa, 103.6?Mpa and 697.7?N, respectively. The corresponding values were 16.8 and 12.4, 11.5?mm2, 40.3?Mpa, 96.8?Mpa and 411.4?N, respectively, in ��the bad group��.
