This study investigated mandibular displacement and masticatory muscle activity during clenching in lateral occlusal position in relation to the lateral occlusal pattern. Twenty healthy human subjects (mean = 26.5 years) volunteered for this study. Metallic occlusal overlays were fabricated for the lower working side canine to second molar and non-working side second molar in order to simulate a canine protected occlusion, group function occlusion and bilateral balanced occlusion (balancing… CONTINUE READING
