Temporal changes under Tooth Loss and Wearing Denture conditions.

<p>The values for [oxy-Hb] during the pre-chewing period for Wearing Denture were significantly (two-way repeated measures ANOVA and Bonferroni t-test, p<0.05) increased for DLPFC (BA46), and FPA (BA10), and during the chewing period for DLPFC (BA9, BA46), FPA (BA10), BA (BA45), and OFC (BA11), and remained increased during the post-chewing period for DLPFC (BA9, BA46), FPA (BA10), BA (BA45), and OFC (BA11) as compared to Tooth Loss. Significant differences between the conditions are indicated by a blue bar.</p>
