Electromyographic recordings from the anterior temporal muscle fibers bilaterally, the posterior temporal muscle fibers bilaterally, the superficial masseter muscle bilaterally, and the left medial pterygoid muscle were used to study the effects of changing the location, size, and direction of effort on specific contact points during maximal clenching tasks in human subjects. Vertical clenching efforts in the natural or simulated intercuspal position generally showed the highest muscle… CONTINUE READING
