OBJECTIVES Sleep bruxism (SB), characterized by repetitive jaw-muscle activity during sleep, is often suggested as a cause of temporomandibular disorders (TMD), orofacial pain, and headache. This study aimed to challenge the relationship between jaw-muscle electromyographic (EMG) activity during sleep and jaw muscle symptoms including pain by modulation of the levels of EMG activity. Contingent electrical stimulation (CES) using a portable single-channel EMG device was applied at different… CONTINUE READING
