Evolution of the activity of the masticatory muscles before and after temporomandibular joint replacement: a clinical and functional study

Abstract : Temporomandibular joint replacement (TMJR) is the last resort in the management of end-stage TMJ disorders or diseases. There is a clear consensus about the indications for TMJR and a recent increase of the studies concerning the clinical outcomes (Johnson et al. 2017). The functional recovering, after the surgery, is usually assessed by the maximal incisal opening, but few studies have investigated other functional aspects (Wojczynska et al. 2019). Our goal is to analyse the 3 D kinematic analysis of the mandible combined with electromyography (EMG) of the masticatory muscles to study the functional abilities before and after total TMJR. This paper focuses on the evolution of the muscular activities before and after the surgery, for two patients followed during one year and compared with an asymptomatic group.
