Maintenance and improvement of masticatory function in nursing care elderly persons (NC) is an important issue, and it is speculated that sarcopenia is related to declining masticatory function. The decrease in skeletal muscle index (SMI), a major diagnostic criterion for sarcopenia, has been reported to be associated with swallowing function in NC. However, the relationship between SMI and masticatory function is unknown. Therefore, we investigated the relationship between masseter muscle thickness (MMT) and SMI, with the …
