Activity in temporalis and masseter muscles, and traits of facial morphology and occlusal stability were studied in 22 patients (19 women, 3 men; 15-45 yr of age) with anterior open bite and symptoms and signs of craniomandibular disorders. Facial morphology was assessed by profile radiographs, occlusal stability by tooth contacts, and craniomandibular(More)
Occlusal stability and mandibular elevator muscle function was studied in 25 women (20-30 yr of age). They had 27-32 fully erupted teeth with few treated occlusal surfaces, and craniomandibular function including mandibular mobility was normal. The aim was to analyze the influence of natural patterns of occlusal contact on electromyographic activity,(More)
Bite force and activity in temporal and masseter muscles during biting and chewing were recorded in 19 control subjects and 23 subjects with symptoms and signs of functional disorders of the craniomandibular system. The entire group comprised 13 men and 29 women, 14-63 yr of age. Maximal unilateral bite force was 480 Newton (N) in control subjects and 387 N(More)
Trigeminal sensory and motor responses to high-intensity electrical stimuli were studied in 10 healthy male subjects. During contraction at 10% of maximal bite force, late exteroceptive suppression periods assessed by EMG and bite force from masseter muscles were recorded together with evoked vertex potentials. Electrical stimuli were either delivered as 1(More)
