Journal : BMC Geriatrics

Previous studies have reported a relationship between masseter muscle thickness and tooth loss or limb muscle thickness. However, it is not yet known whether masseter muscle thickness is related to appendicular skeletal muscle mass, and grip strength. The purpose of this study was to determine which of the two variables—tooth loss or appendicular skeletal muscle mass index—is more strongly related to masseter muscle thickness, and to identify a suitable indicator of decreasing masseter muscle thickness in healthy elderly individuals …
