The creation of Hiperboloide
Hiperboloide, a mastication apparatus, is the result of more than 35
years of study, work and dedication of the professional life of master
Dr. Afrânio Pereira Cheida. In 1955, Dr. Afrânio graduated in Dentistry
for PUCC, and in the very beginning of his career, he was an intern at
USP with Professor Carlos Aldrovandi’s Protesis team, in Oral
Maxillofacial Surgery with Professor J. J. Barros, and took many other
education courses with the most renowned professors. He gained
experience to work on the various dentistry segments, in a general
he was introduced to Dr. Mário Baldani, to Dr. Denisar Lopes Figueiredo
and to Dr. Silvio Betarello, and was amazed with the principles of
Biocybernetics and, in the study group, started the study-debate about
the concept of hyperbolic occlusion. Mário and Afrânio though about
fabricating an auxiliary mastication apparatus with adequate shape,
texture and material. They started a research and tried to build an
exerciser with hyperbolic shape. They did that for some time, but after
several unsuccessful attempts, Dr. Mário Baldani gave up. He was really
tired because the silicone they had was not adequate and demanded an
extensive research, as well as the shape, hardness and the complicated
by the principles of FOM, Dr. Afrânio Cheida continued his studies.
Several courses were took with: Dr. Maurício Vaz de Lima, Dr.
Stefanelli, Dr. Moryón, Dr. Vilma Simões ad others, and he was more a
more convinced that it was necessary to carry on and conclude the
creation project of the desired mastication exerciser, which could
compensate the modern “soft” feeding, and provided the chewing
attributes of hardness, adequate to the human being, which would be a
very important auxiliary for the maxillary morphofunctional
years went by and, in 1988, in a congress held in Rio de Janeiro, Dr.
Afrânio Cheida met Professor Iracema Ferrer, Master and Doctor of the
Federal University of Pernambuco. She was amazed with the project and
said: “Afrânio, don’t stop! This is spectacular. I have traveled the
whole World and I don’t know anything like it, it is innovative!” And
motivated by Dr. Iracema and Dr. Maurício Vaz de Lima, Dr. Afrânio
Cheida went back to Santa Bárbara d’Oeste - São Paulo state, and
restarted the research at full blast.
multinational companies were consulted about the ideal silicone; studies
on shape, hardness, texture, building of the machine, and scientific
basis were developed and finally, in 1989, the HIPERBOLOIDE was
officially launched in the 4th Brazilian Congress of Prevention,
Rehabilitation and Oral Health in Caxambu - Minas Gerais state.
then, several studies, scientific basis and literature about the
Hiperboloide (HB) have been published and propagated and there are
currently more than 50 publications about it in books, articles in
scientific magazines, master and doctoral thesis.
the Hiperboloide is present in several areas as Physiotherapy,
Medicine, Dentistry, Speech Therapy, Nursing and other health areas that
mention and prove the efficiency of the treatment with Hiperboloide for
