Canine guidance was achieved in left and right laterotrusion. Before recording of the condylar position, splints were placed in the mouth and occlusal contacts were checked.
The clinical examination included assessment of jaw movements using a ruler (maximal opening between the incisal frontal teeth, laterotrusion, and protrusion in millimeters), registration of joint sounds (clicking or crepitations), and palpation for tenderness over the joints and masticatory muscles.
Esto se hace con el fin de identificar las areas de desgaste restantes, y por medio de inspeccion visual, evaluarlas y clasificarlas dentro de un patron oclusal especifico, teniendo en cuenta la localizacion y la extension de las marcaciones que ocurren simultaneamente tanto en el lado de trabajo (laterotrusion) como en el lado de balance (mediotrusion) en ambos lados.
Resultado: en el lado derecho de la paciente, donde se observa mayor desgaste en laterotrusion (13, 14, 15 y 16), hay un predominio de recesiones y abfracciones de mayor severidad.
Maximal voluntary mouth opening capacity, laterotrusion to both sides, and protrusion were measured between 11 and 41 in mm.
(A) jaw mobility (maximum jaw opening including vertical overbite, maximum laterotrusion to the right and to the left, maximum protrusion);
