The activity of the jaw elevator muscles (EMG) was recorded during maximal clenching in ICP and unilaterally on 2nd and 1st molars, premolars, canines and central incisors in ten subjects with complete dentitions, normal occlusal relationships, and without signs and symptoms of craniomandibular disorders. The EMG activities were converted to relative muscle force. The distribution of this relative muscle force on teeth and condyles was then calculated by means of a three-dimensional… CONTINUE READING
