What is it about?
This preliminary study focused on young women, who are thought to more quickly develop a stable maximum occlusal force. We hypothesized that maximum occlusal force in young women could be predicted by analyzing and observing patterns in the relationship between occlusal force and individual eating habits. We measured the maximum occlusal force of healthy young women immediately before lunch and analyzed the relationships to their individual eating habits as well as to their eating habit patterns. This aim was achieved.

Why is it important?
Our findings confirm that eating habit patterns are significantly associated with maximum occlusal force and may help predict occlusal force. Our results provide important information about eating patterns in humans.
