Masseter and Temporalis Excursive Hyperactivity Decreased by Measured Anterior Guidance Development
When properly performed, such that the posttreatment disclusion time is <0.4 sec/excursion, the ICAGD enameloplasty predictably reduces excursive muscle activity levels in the bilateral anterior temporalis and masseter muscles.

Assessment of the Temporomandibular Joint Function in Young Adults without Complaints from the Masticatory System
Evaluated the clinical status of the masticatory system in young adults with full permanent dentition and no stomatognathic system complaints and median frequency was an important characteristic parameter for detecting TMJ subluxation.
The Effect of Disclusion Time Reduction on Maximal Clench Muscle Activity Levels
Simultaneous recording of excursive function and muscle activity on 62 MPDS patients demonstrated that reducing prolonged dis inclusion time to short disclusion time created a therapeutic effect such that within one month’s time following treatment, there was an observed increase in the maximal clenching capacity of the masseter and temporalis muscles.
Determining a Relationship Between Applied Occlusal Load and Articulating Paper Mark Area
No direct relationship between paper mark area and applied load could be found, although the trend showed increasing mark area with elevating load.
S3 Guideline: Sedation for gastrointestinal endoscopy 2008
Sedation goals: internal quality assurance/discharge criteria/fitness for road traffic/ability to work/documentation/benchmarking/quality goals; and Informed consent/prerequisites for performance of sedation/preservation of vital functions/clinical monitoring/emergency management.
A Force Reproduction Analysis of Two Recording Sensors of a Computerized Occlusal Analysis System
The purpose of this study was to measure the performance of a new design of occlusal sensor, the high definition (HD) sensor, and directly compare this sensor to the previous design, and find the within sensor variability of the HD sensor was significantly less than that of the G3 sensor.
Clinician accuracy when subjectively interpreting articulating paper markings
The reported low scores obtained from a large group of participant dentists suggest clinicians are unable to reliably differentiate high and low occlusal force from looking at articulating paper marks, suggesting this longstanding method of visually observing articulate paper marks for occluse force content should be replaced with a measurement-based, objective method.

Electromyographic Evidence of Reduced Muscle Activity When ULF-TENS Is Applied to the Vth and VIIth Cranial Nerves
It is concluded that ULF-TENS has an activity-reducing effect on the resting EMG levels of both hyperactive and relaxed muscles, and while the > 2.0 microvolt cutoff is useful for identifying patients that are hyperactive at rest, it does not identify complete relaxation of masticatory muscles.
