Clinical Classification of the Patterns of Mandibular Movements During Mastification in Subjects with TMJ Disorders

Kuwahara/Miyauchi/Maruyama


PMID: 1524632

Patients with TMJ disorders demonstrated different chewing patterns than those of normal subjects. Chewing patterns in the frontal, horizontal, and sagittal projections were classified into four, two, and two different patterns, respectively, and each distinct chewing pattern appeared to be associated with a specific TMJ disorder.
