Masticatory muscles activities in temporomandibular joint internal derangement.

Chantal M. Lafrenière
Intramuscular EMG of the lateral pterygoid muscles, surface EMG of the temporalis and masseter muscles, electrogoniometry and force measurements of the TMJ were synchronously used to investigate the biomechanical role of the two portions of the lateral pterygoid muscle in relation to internal derangement (ID) of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). This study dealt with the EMG analysis of five static conditions: resting, resisted protraction, maximum voluntary contraction (MVC) in opening, in molar and incisor clenching...
