Several authors have studied the influence of varied centric and eccentric occlusal relationships on neuromusculature. However, the authors know of no research comparing the effects on mandibular muscle activity of different occlusal functions in protrusive guidance.
This study used an orthopedic splint to compare the influence exerted by different protrusive occlusal functions on elevator muscle activity. The paper also explains the neuromusculature involved and quantifies the activity in comparison with registration in the mandibular centric position.
