Muscle thickness and activity of masseter and anterior temporalis muscles in children with Class I molar occlusion having normal anterior relation, anterior deep-bite and anterior open-bite were measured using ultrasonographic and electromyographic techniques. The results demonstrated an increased muscle thickness in the deep-bite followed by open-bite subjects. Muscle activity was high in the same groups. Read More

Background: To date, few studies have correlated the changes in muscle activity and specific soft tissue variables in adolescents with malocclusions.
Objective: To determine associations between the soft tissue profile and electromyographic activities in temporalis, masseter and orbicularis oris muscles in children with Class II division 1 malocclusions treated with activators.
Methods: For this prospective study, 25 subjects with Class II division 1 malocclusions were randomly assigned to either a Treatment group (N=15) or a Control group (N=10). Read More
