The activity of jaw elevator muscles (masseter and anterior temporal muscle) was studied by surface electromyography in 17 patients wearing complete dentures with anterior-canine guidance. Baseline electromyography was recorded with the dentures and compared to recordings obtained with two different splints adapted to the upper denture, one providing… (More)
A clinical procedure is described for treatment of patients with condylar malposition. The method of construction of the occlusal splint used is outlined and its mode of action discussed.
The lack of easily measurable, objective physiological activity parameters of the masseter and temporalis muscle during jaw movements in humans has led to the consideration to revise data of surface electromyographies (EMGs) by applying a computerized quantification method. The aim of this follow-up analysis was to get quantitative data out of EMG-records… (More)
Arthrography provides accurate information concerning abnormal changes and function of the soft tissue components of the T.M.J. It is superior to all other clinical and radiological methods of examination for elucidating functional abnormalities. The increasing incidence of functional T.M.J. abnormalities and improvements in treatment make arthrography of… (More)
