Abstract

An objective parameter for the electromyographic evaluation of the masticatory function of edentulous patients was studied. The normal ranges of the parameters for such subjects were also established. This study focused on the time parameter of electromyography, which is one of the most reproducible parameters. The variation coefficient of the time parameters (interval and duration) were revealed to be reliable and reproducible for the evaluation of masticatory functions.
