After subjecting them to the excercises of completely opening and closing of the mouth for 15 no. of times, the rest position was measured again. Results show that the changes in V.D.R. after, excercises, relaxing the elevator and depressor muscles and the duration of usage of prosthesis, the following conclusions are obtained.
1. There is an increase in V.D.R. after tiring out the elevator and depressor muscles of the jaws.
2. There is a direct co - relation between the increased V.D.R. and duration of use of prosthesis after excercises.
3. Change in the V.D.R. after excercise is notably more in women.
